    We should really get rid of the white Nazi movement ASAP.

    Nazis don't deserve tolerance.

    There are some days when I wonder why we just don't feed Rupert to a wood chipper...


    Feet first.


    Slowly.

    How is that sort of shittiness different from ISIS? Except they weren't just beating their gums. We need a different approach to this stuff.

    Of course you're right. We recoil in shock and horror and deflect the otherwise overwhelming impact of such atrocities by resorting to our own little macabre humor. None of us would actually feed Murdoch or anyone else into a wood chipper. It makes a big mess and is very difficult to clean.

    And anyway, the guy’s so powerful and influential that it’s much more likely he’d have you and yours fed into a wood chipper

    Well, a start to remedying the situation is that mendacity in positions of public trust should be punished severely. Financial penalties should be stated as a portion of assets, not as a fixed-dollar amount.

    Not only are we lied to by media purveyors, but also corporate and governmental entities.

    We've been lied into wars, after all--and those guilty of public fraud have never paid for their crimes.

    And that's a damn sight more useful than the bloody wood chipper.

    Make testosterone illegal, that’ll fix it.

    Edited to remove an unfortunate typo, in case anyone thought I was trying to make a joke out of what happened in NZ.

    But anybody can buy a wood chipper. Politicians are a lot more expensive.

    The problem is that this, however laudable, will not change people's prejudices.

    Yes, but it may at least limit the damage of their prejudices.

    So NZ has the population of a moderately large city, and on any given day most of the people on the islands are probably tourists. It is a much easier problem to address in such an environment. A veritable continent with nearly half a billion people on it, with Manifest Destiny, the Golden Rule, and the Second Amendment chiseled in the hardest stone foreheads of a vast army of unthinking golems... it's a bit harder.

    We haven't yet seen how hard the Kiwis will find it. The NRA is everywhere with its evil propaganda.

    When guns don't work, there are always improvised bombs. When those don't work, there is always poison....

    The US learned this the hard way in the Middle East. When they reinforced the bottoms of their vehicles to be resistant to IEDs, the insurgency (that's what they were, after all) developed IEDs with shaped charges.

    The point is that hate will always find a way...

    Probably the best response the USA could muster would be to legislate that "thoughts and prayers" cards be included with every box of ammo.
