    it's a reference to the so-called "brown shirts" who were Nazi supporters during the 1930's and 40's.

    All part of Comrade Peter's very old toolkit of Communist propaganda ... :lol:

    Since those in the left wing of the socialist movement (fabians, Frankfurt school, international socialists, Communists) hate those of the right wing of the socialist movement most of all (national socialists of all stripes including Hitlers' Brown Shirts), and don't very well understand people who don't have motivations outside socialist principles (free marketeers, libertarians, social or economic conservatives), they try to paint all their opponents to national socialists. Which is what was attempted above.

    Call Godwin's Law.

    I once had a rabid anti greenie logger tell me that because of greenies he had to use toilet paper made from recycled paper and it didn't clean his bottom as well as paper milled from old growth forests.



    True story.

    I was told by my cub scout leader that when being attacked by a pack of dogs it's best to whip out the Crosman 760 Pumpmaster .177 calibre pellet air rifle (preferably the pink version) but I am unsure whether they would be wounded or just massively pissed off. While testing the rifle last week, my wife was definitely the latter. The other advice he had was that music soothes the savage beast but as I have zero musical ability this option is basically out for me as well. Next time you get attacked I suggest you break out in a Mariah Carey hit and see what happens. Let us know if it doesn't work as it could be bad advice (I admit I did have a bit of a crush on my leader as he wasn't a paedophile and once a month his wife used to bring in a stack of sugary treats which although it annoyed my mum was simply awesome for an 8-year old). Personally, I'd reckon a flame thrower or a cruise missile would work better.

    Godwin's law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies[1][2]) is an assertion made by Mike Godwin in 1990[2] that has become an Internet adage. It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."[2][3] In other words, Godwin said that, given enough time, in any online discussionregardless of topic or scopesomeone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis.

    Although in one of its early forms Godwin's law referred specifically to Usenet newsgroup discussions,[4] the law is now often applied to any threaded online discussion, such as forums, chat rooms and blog comment threads, and has been invoked for the inappropriate use of Nazi analogies in articles or speeches.[5][dead link] The law is sometimes invoked, as a rule, to mark the end of a discussion when a Nazi analogy is made, with the writer who made the analogy being considered to have lost the argument.

    Peter.. Why don't you become a Political Atheist like me..

    Then sock it to them all..

    Three years is a long time in politics...

    Will the economies of the USA , Europe and China get stronger..

    If they fall even the gurus Tony and Joe will not be able to put out the financial blaze that ensues.

    Australian Defence FORCE ADMITS IT STARTED MAJOR FIRE in NSW. SURELY this could not be a left wing plot. Now send in the army to put it out.

    Regards Errol 43

    :lol: As opposed to the "I feel hard done by so screw everyone else" mentality.

    Your opposition to other people's liberty and freedom from aggression is very shallow. So do you go into your neighbours house and take twenty bucks when you're short on the rent? Do you force someone else to work for longer so that they can't go home to their kids as early as they wanted so that some bureaucrat can get an income by drawing up a form to steal any income from that extra work?

    Yes, it must be lonely up there by yourself on your moral high ground.

    :lol: While Immorality toward others smells like roses, huh? How dare people treat others with the same respect and dignity that I would like to be treated! Screw their kids and their twenty bucks.

    Do you actually have an argument for initiating aggression against others?
