People who should be executed for helping the terrorists: Point/Counterpoint

Adam Yoshida says:

It may not be a popular or politically correct thing to say – though I’ve never courted popularity or embraced political correctness – but the editors and reporters at the New York Times ought to go to be put to death for their crimes against this country.

I say: Kill the punks who told the terrorists that you could destroy cars with 500-pound rubber band balls. I mean, I didn't know that. I bet you didn't know that. You can bet people living in caves near Kandahar who didn't grow up in the rubber band era didn't know that.

Now, we all know.

Well, Homeland Security probably still doesn't know. I bet I could walk into my nearest  Staples and buy 10,000 cases of rubber bands without attracting the slightest attention. Thanks to some looselipped stoners with DV cams, rubber bands are the new fertilizer.

Way to go, assholes.

Hmmm. I detect a certain...whimsical mania in today's posts. I'll have whatever you're having!

Actually, I've got the flu. I'm sort of going stir-crazy.

Nice catch, Lindsay, but you're not thinking big enough. We need to go Keyser Soze on their asses, so killing the punks who made the rubberband-ball-of-death is just the beginning. We should also kill their families, their friends, and everyone who does business with them. That should instill fear in the hearts of any other would-be office-supply traitor. Everyone at You-Tube also needs to be killed for making this clip freely available to all the terrorists. Finally, we all need to kill ourselves for watching this seditious video. But maybe we should kill our families, friends, and everyone who does business with us too before we kill ourselves. What do you guys think? Please respond soon, I've got a REAL itchy trigger finger.

Good lord, you're missing the most IMPORTANT part of this entire STORY! Did you miss the fact that JEFF G*LDSTEIN hasn't posted in at least three hours? I think a SIGNIFICANT national asset in the War against TERROR has been INCAPACITATED by fear because teh TERROR isn't being audited by drug sniffing CPAs that he didn't previously know where at work. Do you UNDERSTAND what this will do to our freedoms?!?

" I bet I could walk into my nearest Staples and buy 10,000 cases of rubber bands without attracting the slightest attention. Thanks to some looselipped stoners with DV cams, rubber bands are the new fertilizer."

Without advanced dirt-ramp building technology, the terrorists have nothing.

Am I hallucinating or is Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata playing in the background of that clip? Why?

I'm sorta confused. Adam Yoshida is, of course, Canadian. So by "this country" I would assume he means his own beloved homeland. But how can Americans commit treason against Canada. Treason, by definition, can only be committed against your own country.

Adam Yoshida is, to say the very least, confused. Disregard everything he writes.

Well, first off, maybe he actually believes he is American, even though he is Canadian, which in that case I suppose it is treasonous. Or maybe he thought the whole United States of Canada/Jesusland was for real.

I can't stop laughing. This is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. But I still can't figure out why anyone would subject their own perfectly good vehicle to this kind of abuse. Does anybody remember the story about the kid with the world's largest ball of string? James Thurber was it? That's all I could think of when I looked at that ball. Plus, the idea that you could try it with the world's largest pumpkin or some other round vegetable. There are a lot of possibilitites in this exercise, I think we can only guess at how a truly diabolical terrorist mindset could run with this idea.

Go to www.youtube.com, search for "thermite", run the "thermite experiment" link to watch the brainiac team abuse science and destroy another car.
Then search for "rich english trebuchet" to see yet another car ascend to heaven.

It may not be a popular or politically correct thing to say – though I’ve never courted popularity or embraced political correctness – but the editors and reporters at the New York Times ought to go to be put to death for their crimes against this country.

What do you call a view that is based on contrarianism but that is in fact immensely popular?

Am I hallucinating or is Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata playing in the background of that clip? Why?

Some people hear Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata playing in the background in a clip of a giant rubber band ball rolling down a hill toward a car, and ask: Why? But we hear Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata playing in the background in a clip of a giant rubber band ball rolling down a hill toward a car, and ask: Why Not?
