WW1 tanks hull was made of essentially wet tissue paper :lol2: . Or, you know, steel. Germany didn't make the T-Gewehr just for the lulz. And my point is that WW1 era tanks don't tend to be rolling around the streets these days. They're museum pieces, or buried under some French farmer's turnips. W...

Idk man, it's cool to have a woman around that's only good for one thing as opposed to being a Jack of all trades and master of none As long as she's pretty, I'm fine. I don't need sexual intercourse. I'll treat her like a princess. You will marry her off to a neighboring Lord in order to secure al...

Quite honestly, your statement here makes no sense. Societal norms are based on the morals of the people making up the society. They can't replace them. That's like asking someone to build a house on top of itself. And even there, Wider society has fairly little hand in the raising of children. Tha...

And Trump wants to build a wall at all costs. Do you honestly think he'd be able to start the most bloody war in US history to accomplish it if that war wasn't already started for him? Lincoln, like any president, had limits on his power. Dude, how are you comparing a wall to the secession of all t...

Can we at least consider the possibility that he would be less inclined to do so if he could just own his own private army? I think this would be a net plus for America and thus I now support the decriminalization of tanks. Would love it when tank rage starts. Already happens. Look up the Killdozer...

Possible, but we can't know how the Union would have reacted to a more diplomatic and less jingoistic Confederacy. Lincoln wanted to keep the Union together at all costs. That should tell you the approach that the United States had towards the insurrection. All that the attack on Fort Sumter did wa...

But you aren't able to. You can't afford them. An M1 Abrams costs about $5 million to produce. If you assume an average of 35% market upcharge, that means an off-the-shelf tank would be around $6.75 million. Michael Bloomberg could afford over 9,185 tanks. Do we really want Michael Bloomberg to hav...

No? We had a civil war over slavery and the Confederate states being aggressive shitheads about the secession. Actually yes. Texas v. White (1869) ended with the Supreme Court saying states do not have a right to secede, any secession is illegal and, as far as the Constitution is "aware,"...

We didn't have tanks, planes, or modern warships in the 1700s. Or the 1800s.

I always find the argument that children shouldn't be taught religious doctrine when children rather humorous. Do you also expect parents not to give their children any form of moral compass?
