London Tragedy

Just saw the horrible news, God bless the people of London in this time.

This is brazen, right in the middle of already heightened security, in very terrorism-conscious London.

My gut impression is that this was a 'local' job, done with heavy involvement of some fairly sophisticated folks who probably speak English with a London accent, wear chic clothing, have good jobs, and who blend in perfectly in Cosmopolitan London. The amount of planning required, shows that there was some very heavy recon work done, something only very discrete locals could get away with.

However bold this was, it only shows how low the West-hating Islamist radicals will go.

They are picking on the wrong people, though. The Brits in general, and Londoners in particular, are an amazingly resillient people and they will surmount this. And, it goes without saying, they will hit back real hard too.

Some excellent links here including some London bloggers with on-the-scene coverage.

Boli-Nica: nothing more interesting to read than a sports fanatic tackling an intelectual conversation.
You strike me as fast with words, naturally opinionated, but with a problem. I detect a subtle internal conflict. The way you write strikes me as if you still struggle with a form of an inferiority complex, you sound like a typical republican in orange co., but since you are half bolivian your complex may originate in the indian blood mix, that makes you even more interesting. You exhibit all the traits of the perfect conservative idiot; ignorant, sports oriented, hater of all that appears "different", a kiss-up to the "western" world, or should we call it the "civilized" world? you must believe bushe's "they hate us because we are free" line... grow up man, read and educate yourself a little more, it may show you a different side of the world, the part that perhaps you are trying so hard to disassociate from. Get real man, think before you write.. you're polluting the conversation about real autonomy for the "camba" areas in Bolivia and the real issue with the 1st world screwing the 3rd world. Stop being a 1st world apologist, you remid me of the mexican american border agents in TJ, they are far meaner than the white ones, why? because they have to proof something, they have to proof they are american and they also want to be like the whites, heck, they want to be white! like you.

HAHAHAHAHA, some snobbish, pseudo-intellectual, leftoid, with a fondness for pscyho-babble - all with a very un-PC racist streak.



The only inferiority complex on display here is yours, you obsess on my purported 'sportsfan' mentality, which shows that you are someone who associates 'sports-fans' with the bullies who probably terrorized you as a child, and with the lunkheads who were out drinking beer and picking up women while you stayed around the quad meeting with the solidarity groups.

Way out on a limb there dooder, I am a registered Democrat - but not a knee-jerk liberal. My thinking comes from my experiences and from my education - formal or self-taught. I probably saw more crap growing up, than you did growing up in whatever Barnes & Noble suburb you crawled out of.


Nice try, trying to tar me as a sell-out/Uncle Tom. I can think for myself, thank you. I will call out anyone - be they Republicans, YAF'ers, Naderites, who I think is just plain wrong.


Well, outside of the psycho-babble and character assasination, I see little substance to your whole ramblings. If you are so 'interested' in my writings, at least cite specific examples when calling me out, if not STFU.

STFU? typical ignorant. You amuse everyone, keep it up, your obtuse mind makes you laughable.

Your rant:

"I probably saw more crap growing up, than you did growing up in whatever Barnes & Noble suburb you crawled out of."

Confirms your ignorance.

Books, by the way, are good for you, you should read some, the list of books on your pathetic profile is just hilarious. Why don't you add books on BBQ?

Ignorant.

Ouch!, working at Borders does give you a superiority complex, doesn't it???

LOL, you are such a petty little bitch.

Total poster boy/girl for the "think-you're-smart-cause-you-read-many-books-liberal-lacking-common-sense" cliche that Conservatives love to mock.

At the risk of getting into a "I read more than you do" pissing contest, I probably have read more on Latin American history and politics.

What next, you go to Amazon to find some names to throw at me??

b/t/w Whats wrong with "Bonfires"? you might want to read his "Radical Chic" piece, you could actually learn something.

Yeah, maybe you should post some of your latin american book titles. It would be helpful to see what fuels your stupidity.

Your:

"Total poster boy/girl for the "think-you're-smart-cause-you-read-many-books-liberal-lacking-common-sense" cliche that Conservatives love to mock."

rant just proves my point. You have nothing to hang on to. You remind me of Ann Coulter, with the difference that she actually reads some of the crap she spits out...

Maybe you should go back and keep watching your car races, stick to sports, you fool, you're probabbly good at it. Stop pulluting the issues with your ignorant rants.

After that, you should work on your inferiority complex. Just think about it, being non wihite is OK, repeat that to yourself and you will one day stop kissing up to be part of the "team". Did you get that? "team" is probably the only analogy your, pseudo-conservative-I-want-to-be-white little mind would understand.

Whats up big boy, you seem kinda rattled? (-you obviously are a dude, women tend to make more sense than that)
You are amusing, you get less and less coherent as you go on. Might as well pack it in, be a good little boy and leave the arguing to the adults.

Hmm. that seems suspiciously like the rant of a Cliff-Notes "inellectual", some real soft major like Women's Studies in college, couple of quickie pamphlets, and "Indymedia" on the internet, and you are automatically 'cultured' and 'well-read'.

Come to think of it, you sound like the types who consider themselves 'well-read" if they read all those Star Trek books, and Frank Herberts, entire Dune saga. Sorry, that just makes for great conversations with Ferengi-clad types at conventions, and that guy in Anchorage Alaska, who rules the Dune discussion boards.

Before you open your yap on 'car racing' go read up on Nuvolari, Fangio, Gurney, the Novi Engine, Jim Clark, Porsche 917-Ferrari 512 battles, the Can-Am Series, as well as the handling of this years Renault compared to last years.
Then come talk to me about car racing little boy.

Hmm. what do we have here? Are we Latin by any chance?? Probably some second generation dood, who lived in some So-Cal suburb all his life, and got in touch with his 'roots' in college, summer in Spain perhaps. Probably can't even speak Spanish, can't you??? Of course, you might have taken some courses, but you probably sound very, very, gringo.


Parece ser que eres TU el acomplejado. A little inferiority complex yourself bud?

Examples of your ignorance:

"Whats up big boy, you seem kinda rattled? (-you obviously are a dude, women tend to make more sense than that)

It's kind of silly to point them out, but maybe we should since your intellectual level is that low little sport fan..

Here's another one:

"Come to think of it, you sound like the types who consider themselves 'well-read" if they read all those Star Trek books, and Frank Herberts, entire Dune saga. Sorry, that just makes for great conversations with Ferengi-clad types at conventions, and that guy in Anchorage Alaska, who rules the Dune discussion boards.

More generalizations that probably make you feel better...

And, the real knowledge you seem to have, the only thing you must have memorized to belong and feel equal to your classmates...

LOL, you are a funny, keep it up, you make me laugh..

And here's the funniest one:

"Parece ser que eres TU el acomplejado. A little inferiority complex yourself bud?

A last ditch effort to prove the source of your complex. Yeah, throw in some spanish if you feel that gives you any authority to even repeat what you see in your little tv screen when you are not watching your car fetish shows..

You are sad, you live in generalizations and swim happily in a pile of half truths, pseudo-analytical rants. Your world is just a deep hole straight out fo the dark ages where the only thing you really know is to throw sport names and memorabilia out there, because your limited brain is incapable of a real discussion.

Get a life, go back and watch your sports channel, you have nothing to offer here, go and memorize a few dozen new racer names, you seem to do that well, you pathetic mindless sport freak.

Face it, you have been smacked down, dragged around the mud, and left for dead.

Your world is just a deep hole straight out fo the dark ages where the only thing you really know is to throw sport names and memorabilia out there, because your limited brain is incapable of a real discussion

Let me get this straight:

i. My entire output is 'rants' consisting of sweeping generalizations

ii. I only know 'sports names and memorabilia'?


Damn, you really should get out more.

First of all 'Sports and Memorabilia' sounds like an Ebay category.

You actually sound envious of the fact that I am well-versed in motorsports, and like sports. This at least shows that I have varied interests and am not a one-dimensional jacktard like you.

Second you blab continually on supposed 'generalizations'. But then again you are the one calling my so called 'rants''pseudo-analytical', which at least implies some thought. The comments you make on my posts, only shows you know one or two big words, and have 0 capacity for making an argument.

Read through my posts you might learn something. If you have a beef with something specific, at least say why, and give me your reasons, in a semi-coherent manner. When I griped about your hero, Jim Schultz, I used his own words to point out his agenda. But it was done RATIONALLY.

Betcha can't do that genius-boy.

Just face the facts, you are overmatched. I smackdown idiots like you for fun, in the day I have been known for cranking out legal briefs on fairly complex issues (and winning), besides writing research papers on obscure subjects you know nothing about.

You on the other hand, can barely get beyond cheap sloganeering - done badly at that.




., Get a life, go back and watch your sports channel, you have nothing to offer here, go and memorize a few dozen new racer names, you seem to do that well, you pathetic mindless sport freak.

You can't even belt out a half-decent insult!!!
LOL, compared to you, I've got more game than Parker Brothers (hip hop reference b/t/w/)

Here we go again, throwing a name here and there to cover the fact that you are an ignorant.
