i got this a while back in a dilbert news-letter, some funny shit so i thought id share it with all you's



---
I recently read an article by an economist who said that poverty
causes people to become terrorists. He used big words and was very
convincing.

Then I watched TV coverage of a high school hazing ritual in an
upscale suburban neighborhood. Dozens of well-to-do Induhviduals
paid for the privilege of sitting in a field and having mud, paint,
garbage, eggs, pig guts, and excrement shoved up their nostrils
while being beaten with blunt objects.

I'm not an economist, but my theory is that you can convince a
certain percentage of Induhviduals to do any dangerous thing,
whether they happen to be poor or not. So let's stop picking on
poor people. If peer pressure can convince 20% of rich kids to
start smoking cigarettes -- and it does -- it isn't much of a leap
to convince them to grow scraggly beards and drive exploding cars.
It's mostly a difference in timing.

Osama inherited half a billion dollars. So I rule out poverty as a
cause of terror. I blame rich Induhviduals, and peer pressure.

Peer pressure is the most powerful force on the planet, and we need
to use it to our advantage. For example, I recommend that the
Western media and politicians stop using the menacing-yet-cool
phrase "Al-Qaeda" and start referring to the group as the
"frickin' Induhviduals."

Like the proverbial dog chasing a car, the Induhviduals haven't
considered what would happen if they caught one. For example,
let's say they (the Induhviduals, not the dogs) accomplish their
stated goal of destroying the economies of the Western world. Is
that really a good plan for people who live in a desert and import
most of their food?

Just for the record, if I'm down to my last potato, I'm not sharing
it with a guy who wants to kill me so he can get a better supply
of virgins in paradise. That lesson is a little thing I call
Economics 101, infidel style.

For the Induhviduals, it must look as if Americans are really dumb
to have the most awesome arsenal in the history of the world and
still be unable to stop terror attacks. They don't realize that the
way Americans look at it is that, so far, we're "really mad," but
not yet "REALLY, REALLY mad." Oh, there's a difference. Americans
understand that somewhere between "inconvenient air travel" and
"complete breakdown of Western civilization," the "REALLY, REALLY
mad" part kicks in. I won't give away what happens then, but
remember you first heard the phrase "New Iowa" in the Dilbert
Newsletter.

And let's stop calling the terrorist supporters "fundamentalists,"
because that sounds like it could be a good thing. I recommend a
more descriptive label, such as "slow learners," to keep things in
perspective. Then let's airdrop science and economics textbooks on
their terrorist training camps with condescending notes, such as,
"Maybe this will help. Call us if you have questions."

This would be a small step, in the sense that reading books about
economics is only slightly better than suicide. But you have to
start somewhere.

That's my plan. If you have a better one, be sure to include it in
your next newsletter.

Have you ever had a conversation with one of these "rabs" to find out if they truly were "stupid"? Probably not, so don't be a racist facist, and don't judge. Two rights don't make a wrong, if they have beef with you, just let them make an ass of themselves, there isn't any need to do it back.

I agree but you shouldn't use words you don't understand:

Racism: Belief that one's race according to colour is superiour to others. Practiced in the Nazi regime between 1933-45.

Fascism: Open, agressive terrorising dictatorship in the late stage of capitalism. Monopolistic capitalism originally practiced in Italy (Mussolini) and later practiced in other countries.

I hate when people use words like this without having any idea what they mean...

By the way, the original post was quite funny...

Very funny stuff! :lol:

In my oppinion, all this "i hate you! i kill you! i take back my land" shit is very stupid.
That piece of earth is just as good as that piece of earth. And if you cant do anything about it (short of blowing yourself up) then just go home dammit and do something about your economy!

Hehe, that was funny but pretty true. There's quite a lot of those morons who hate white people but they use all western tech and stuff. Maybe we should boobytrap our tech...
