    Kindof like saying (and there are some out there that believe it) that it was all a conspiracy concocted by our gov't so they could go to war.

    Again, anyone with half a brain isn't buying into something as ludicrous as that.

    Ok, fair enough, while free speech gives you the right to have that opinion, probably something better left unsaid.

    I am an extreme advocate of free speech. I will always defend any American's right to say whatever the hell he wants.

    But I am also a firm believer that you reap the results of what you sow. Say what you like, but be prepared to accept the consequences, and don't get upset when people react badly.

    As for the point on rejoicing over a death, I also refuse to do so. I'd glad that we won't have to deal with this guy any more, but I won't throw a party to celebrate a death, even one such as his. For those who believe in a God, let him pronounce final judgment.

    "'Vengeance is mine,' saith the Lord."

    I refuse to entertain the conspiracy argument. Something that big simply could not be kept totally secret for this length of time.

    Re: Rashard Mendenhall, Nice tweets douche

    :unsure: I'm not sure I should post this...

    I may be young, but I've come to realize something:

    Most people are stupid. And stupid people believe stupid things.

    To quote George Carlin: “Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!” Rashard Mendehall is one of those people. His tweets make it clear that he is delusional.

    So the way I see this whole Mendenhall situation is like this:

    Stupid people attacked other people for believing different stupid things or not believing in their stupid thing. A stupid person went on twitter and said that no one should judge another stupid person for doing so because the stupid tweeter's stupid belief tells him not to.

    I think people are entitled to their opinions and beliefs, even when they're stupid. I think they have right to express them too. But people shouldn't hate or kill in the name of, shape their lives around or vilify others for not believing in the same. Operate with logic and reasoning. Question what you hear, read, and see. Question what your parents taught you(there's a good chance they were stupid too), question everything, if you come to a conclusion that goes against what you were taught, great! You're making progress.

    As for his second tweet, he's just stating a fact. No one knows "the true" about anything related to 9/11. There's no way a 747 can make a building fall like those towers did.
    Just so you know ... that is not actually an MLK quote.

    As for Mendenhall ... he is allowed to have his own opinions, but he also is allowed to be loudly criticized for them.

    Marr,
    You are giving the average person too much credit. After all, until recently, people believed that the president was not born in the US and it has been a huge cover up.

    Hell, people have create theories that that Bin Laden died weeks ago and the us just decleared it.

    TO be honest, It's not the first time I have heard someone mention that the TT were brought down by something else and that the US govt is hiding something. So i don't find his belief so odd. I don't agree but it's not like he is trying to convince us that rain is angels peeing.

    I was disappointed that the man did not get a trial. I am disappointed that the mission was a kill mission and not a capture.
    Do i believe that he would have revealed somethings our govt did/does that they don't want you to know about? Yes.

    As a christian, i was also sadden that people felt the need to party at his death. We consider ourselves a christian nation but celebrate the death of man that never got to know Jesus. That is sad to me.

    DR Martin Luther King Jr once said.. “I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy.”

    Which i'd guess Mendenhall was trying to say, just not as eloquently.
    Seems a bit odd to use a quote from Dr. King who believed and acted in a non-violent way, to reference Bin Laden who preached, participated in, and was responsible for murder and violence.

    As far as the feelings of Bin Laden's family, I'm fairly certain Bin Laden's actions are to blame.

    If people of various faiths are wrong to pass judgement on Bin Laden, then who are we to pass judgement on how those people react to his death; including Mendenhall or those who rejoiced?

    youtube zeitgeist part two.

    Very fishy stuff was happening during 9/11. If Mendenhall observed this and took it all as solid evidence, then it would make his tweet about the planes taking down the towers make more sense.

    The craziest part of the video was the third building that collapsed demolition style...which was never even struck by a plane!
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
