  • 14:25 @Liquidpandora Whatever makes money, right? :-) #
  • 14:34 Apparently, "raisin" is French for grape. So what do they call raisins? That must be confusing for them. #
  • 14:36 Sometimes, it's like English doesn't even try. Why not make up a word? Why confuse the poor French people? #
  • 14:40 @Liquidpandora Heh heh heh. A fool and his money are easily parted. You could make a killing selling teabags there, too. #
  • 16:20 LOL! He might have more luck if he hadn't been convicted of aggrivated sodomy: #
  • 18:54 @paper_hand What if it was turning into a bio-woman every full moon? :-D #
  • 18:59 @paper_hand What about be a bio-woman but change into a man every month? #
  • 19:04 @paper_hand Payphones are already practically obsolete. #
  • 20:36 @paper_hand Awww, never been kissed? :-( #
  • 21:42 Q:Which is funnier: monkeys, or Batman gardening?... A:Monkeys are scary, so Batman gardening. #
  • 21:46 Q:If you could do anything without worrying a... A:At this point, I'd steal shitloads of money... #
  • 00:01 LOL #
  • 00:19 Common argument against God: If God is so powerful, why doesn't He help ppl more? Rebuttal: Omniscient, omnipotent, omnibenevolent: pick 2 #
  • 00:20 It is literally impossible to do good by everyone. "Good" is highly subjective. The best good God can do is nothing at all. #
  • 00:25 RT @alittlethought @Fayanora Being omniscient and omnibenevolent
    sounds like punishment not Godhood! #
  • 00:35 @paper_hand huh? how so? #
  • 00:36 @paper_hand You're assuming that time exists for such an entity. But in reality, time is an illusion. #
  • 00:39 @paper_hand Time and space are both illusions, yes. #
  • 00:42 @paper_hand Relative reality is illusory. We can only experience absolute reality before and after death. #
  • 00:43 @RobertMoranLA You work at Fox News? Ugh. You poor thing. #
  • 00:48 @RobertMoranLA I have a problem with Fox news, since they don't actually report the news, but make up shit to fit their paranoid delusions #
  • 00:51 @RobertMoranLA The entire Glenn Beck show, for one. But he's far from the only one. I've seen countless examples of Fox people... #
  • 00:52 @RobertMoranLA ...ignoring key facts or making up lies about Obama. It's not news, it's all opinions based on lies and half-truths. #
  • 00:53 @RobertMoranLA #
  • 00:54 @RobertMoranLA #
  • 00:55 @RobertMoranLA #
  • 00:57 @RobertMoranLA Google "Fox news lies" and there are thousands of hits. #
  • 01:00 @RobertMoranLA I did. #
  • 01:02 @RobertMoranLA Wow, someone working at Fox news refusing to acknowledge facts given to him. Why am I not surprised? #
  • 01:05 @RobertMoranLA You should watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Almost every episode has solid video evidence that Fox news lies. #
  • 01:09 Ugh. @foxnews is naught but half-truths, omissions, distortions, & even outright lies. I've no respect for it or anyone who works for it. #
  • 01:10 Of course, all news media outlets are guilty of omissions and distortions, but none are even 1/100th as bad as @foxnews #
  • 01:13 @RobertMoranLA Congratulations on gainful employment. But @foxnews is to the media as the black death is to midevil Europe. #
  • 01:15 @RobertMoranLA I'm not denigrating your accomplishments, just your employer. I hate @foxnews even worse than I hate Wal-Mart. #
  • 01:17 @RobertMoranLA Well then it's not too late. Your soul is only being rented to the devil, in that case. You can always break the lease. #
  • 01:20 @RobertMoranLA I consider @foxnews to be a malignant cancer on the face of the press. An exaggeration of media problems as a whole... #
  • 01:20 @RobertMoranLA ...but I believe @foxnews to be in danger of making all of the media even worse. #
  • 01:24 @RobertMoranLA I've already said that other media outlets lie & omit things. But I've also said that @foxnews is the worst offender by 100X #
  • 01:35 @RobertMoranLA Also, I can like you as a person even if I despise your employer. I wouldn't hate someone who worked at Wal-Mart... #
  • 01:35 @RobertMoranLA ...similarly, I would not hate you for working at @foxnews. I don't understand why you would choose to, but so what? #
  • 01:36 @RobertMoranLA I don't understand why someone would choose atheism or Christianity, either, but I have friends who have. #
  • 01:44 @RobertMoranLA I suggest we not discuss your employer, then, since I can understand atheists better than I can understand the pro-Fox stance #
  • 01:46 @RobertMoranLA I'm a neo-pagan. And I have nothing against Jesus's teachings, in fact I respect them & him. (2 b cont) #
  • 01:46 @RobertMoranLA (cont) It has been my experience, though, that very few who claim to be Christians actually follow his teachings (2 b cont) #
  • 01:47 @RobertMoranLA (cont) Or even, for that matter, *know* all of his teachings. Most seem to go by words put into his mouth that he never said #
  • 01:48 @RobertMoranLA or interpretations of his teachings that are completely contradictory to his intent. #
  • 01:49 RT @funnyhumour Multiple personalities disorder. turning a wank into
    an orgy. #
  • 01:50 @RobertMoranLA I also don't believe Jesus was a god, nor do I believe he was crucified. #
  • 01:51 @RobertMoranLA Heh, we agree on something! (Other than pro-autism stuff.) See! :-D #
  • 01:52 @RobertMoranLA There are reports that Jesus went to the British isles after his supposed crucifixion, where he continued to teach. #
  • 01:53 .@RobertMoranLA Anyway, most Christians pay way too much attention to the rabid-fan mythology surrounding Jesus and little to his teachings. #
  • 01:55 @RobertMoranLA I hate to ask, but how do you reconcile Jesus's teachings with the anti-Left, anti-Obama vitriol of people like @glennbeck? #
  • 02:11 @RobertMoranLA This is different from Medicare, unemployment benefits, and welfare how? #
  • 02:11 @RobertMoranLA Where did Jesus say that? #
  • 02:12 @RobertMoranLA The link is broken. #
  • 02:24 @RobertMoranLA Well what Bible verse? #
  • 02:29 .@RobertMoranLA I am so glad I can simply choose my own ethical code, instead of trying to interpret one that is over 2000 years old... #
  • 02:29 .@RobertMoranLA ...and written (originally) in another language, to boot. #
  • 02:30 @RobertMoranLA Why not? Lots of people get into rough spots and need help to survive. #
  • 02:30 @RobertMoranLA ...while they get back on their feet, or try to. #
  • 02:32 .@RobertMoranLA I believe humans are meant to cooperate for survival, not compete. #
  • 02:33 .@RobertMoranLA I believe adequate food, water, and shelter are basic human rights, and ppl given help to find ways to contribute. #
  • 02:35 .@RobertMoranLA I don't believe providing basic survival needs for everyone should be considered charity. #
  • 02:36 .@RobertMoranLA I consider making sure everyone can at least survive without undue struggle to be the only ethical thing to do. #
  • 02:38 .@RobertMoranLA I believe any society that lets people starve or go homeless when the resources exist to prevent it, to be morally bankrupt. #
  • 02:41 .@RobertMoranLA I think anyone who would choose to let someone starve or go homeless is either callous or evil. Same goes for societies. #
  • 02:43 .@RobertMoranLA I feel that most people would eventually agree with "being forced" to help others, it's getting them past (2bcont) #
  • 02:44 .@RobertMoranLA (cont) the inertia of their behaviors that's the hard part. Take the civil rights movement, for one. (2bcont) #
  • 02:45 .@RobertMoranLA (cont) Civil rights had to be forced on America, but most would now agree it was right. #
  • 02:46 .@RobertMoranLA (cont) Sometimes humans have to force themselves to do the right thing. And I believe it is right to do so. #
  • 02:47 .@RobertMoranLA (cont) I think the only problem, really, is people are afraid. Which I understand, when so many can't agree on what is right #
  • 02:48 .@RobertMoranLA Maybe taking things slowly is a good idea... but only to a point. Humanity is not going to improve 1 person at a time. #
  • 02:49 .@RobertMoranLA Only by voting on (and passing) measures that r argued by some to be "forced charity" will we improve the species. #
  • 02:50 .@RobertMoranLA And our species is still a horde of barbarians at this point. We need improvement if we are to save ourselves & Earth. #
  • 02:54 .@RobertMoranLA I think anyone who would complain about a tiny % of their taxes helping thy fellow man akin to (2 b cont) #
  • 02:55 .@RobertMoranLA (cont) whining about being expected to not be an asshole to other people. (Just an example.) #
  • 02:56 .@RobertMoranLA It's silly, IMHO, to complain about being "forced" to be a decent human being. #
  • 02:58 @RobertMoranLA We've been trying things that way for centuries & gotten nowhere. #
  • 02:58 .@RobertMoranLA More progress has been made in last 50 years than the 500 before it because of "forcing" ppl w/ laws. #
  • 03:00 .@RobertMoranLA Besides, making such things laws doesn't take away choice. They can still refuse. It just ups the social pressure. #
  • 03:03 I am utterly serious about basic human needs being basic human rights, in highly organized societies like ours. #
  • 03:04 I find this society's condoning of treating other people like worthless garbage if they can't compete to be morally repugnant. #
  • 03:05 I look at this society, obsessed with competition tothe exclusion of cooperation for mere survival, and find myself disgusted. #
  • 03:07 Humanity got as far as it has by cooperation. Now we need to up the scale. We're a global species now, we should cooperate globally. #
  • 03:08 If all this makes me a communist, well fine. So I'm a communist. Though so far, people have managed to fuck that up as well. #
  • 03:09 The problem with communist governments so far is that they're not based in compassion, but ideology & dogma. That's why they're all failures #
  • 03:11 Which, incidentally, is the same thing wrong with most Christians: dogma becomes more important than compassion. #
  • 03:12 It's like Robert Anton Wilson said: "When dogma enters the brain, all intellectual activity ceases." #
  • 03:13 I add my own bit: "When dogma enters the brain, all compassionate activity ceases." #
  • 03:15 @RobertMoranLA Likewise. #
  • 03:20 All my life I've been perplexed by human behavior, especially cruelty. I find the older I get, the deeper my confusion grows. #
  • 03:21 As a child, I expected I would have figured out humanity by now. No such luck there. #
  • 03:22 Growing up, I felt like an advanced alien living amongst barbarians. Then I grew up & found it was true. #
  • 03:34 I hope when I die, I can be reborn female. My childhood in this lifetime sucked majorly. #
  • 03:37 When I don't understand someone's POV, I try to figure it out. With varying levels of success. #
  • 03:39 Some POVs I just don't get no matter how hard I try. Atheism, dogmatism, Republicans are a few. #
  • 03:39 @RobertMoranLA I have Asperger's syndrome, yes. #
  • 03:41 Racism is a big one. Don't think I *want* to understand that POV. Hatred based on totally impersonal reasons is just bizarre. #
  • 03:41 The few people I truly hate, I hate because they've done something unforgivable to me. #
