United States is North KoreaSo this ex pro basketball player I've never heard of goes to North Korea to visit their dear leader as a publicity stunt orchestrated by some obscure media outlet. Apparently successful, because mainstream media is stupid enough to fall for it, since I saw it on TV over dinner. Anderson Cooper is all like outraged and shit. "How can you meet with a murderer?" Death camps, human rights abuses, etc.United States is North Korea3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well, no doubt North Korea is a humongous shit hole, but guess what? It operates on the same basic principles as the United States. Anderson mentioned a few points, and the parallels are just too obvious to miss to anyone with half a brain. But alas, they didn't have any common decency to invite somebody to troll away their "we are the good guys" and "they are the bad guys" message. Obviously, the US is way better than North Korea, but we are talking about principle, and in that respect they are no different at all.
North Korea has concentration camps where enemies of the people are he
In _____ We TrustIn response to a recent petition, the phrase "In God We Trust" will stay on US currency. The reasoning included these points:In _____ We Trust4 months ago in Personal More Like This
"While the President strongly supports every American's right to religious freedom and the separation of church and state, that does not mean there's no role for religion in the public square."
"A sense of proportion should also guide those who police the boundaries between church and state. Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation - context matters.
"That's why President Obama supports the use of the words "under God' in our Pledge of Allegiance and "In God we Trust' on our currency and as our national motto. These phrases represent the important role religion plays in American public life, while we continue to recognize and protect the rights of secular Americans. As the President said in his inaugural address, "We

There will be no way to "win" the game. It will be based on the multitudes of scary game creepypasta out there.

Do you think you've got what it takes to make a convincing argument? Is there a topic that you care deeply about that just doesn't get enough attention nowadays? Would you like to write a guest journal for the group?
We've been pretty bad about setting up features for the group, but you know what? I think that it's mainly because we were focusing too much on the group admin, and not on the members. So, hopefully this will be more fun and exciting!
If you've got an opinion on a topic that you would like to make an argument for (or against), and feel that you'd be up to writing a journal entry about that topic for the group to see, please leave a comment on this journal expressing your interest!
Journals will be posted at least once a week, depending on participation and availability. Participants will go one at a time, so that we have a (hopefully!) ongoing source of

Well!I'm feeling much better now that I had a long talk with my mom, and my dad also got a new job! it's a bit far away, but it's such good news and it takes so much stress away from me.

Words That Shall Not Be SpokenI wonder why people tend to think that if something has a specific meaning in their society/culture/language, it has the same meaning everywhere, when it has already been proven over and over that this is not the case, far from.Words That Shall Not Be Spoken4 months ago in Personal More Like This
What I'm referring to here, is a recent discussion on LJ's ONTD-politics - in short, it's about how this person wants to reword old books, because words like 'neger' appear, and they fear children might turn racist from reading them, or something like that. As for that matter, censoring books (especially older books that hold a cultural importance - such as, but not limited to, Lindgren's Pippi) just because the language has changed and words might have gotten new meanings, I don't think that's right. Why should we change and ignore something that reflects part of our society's history, just because an 'outsider' with little to no knowledge or insight feels offended by mere word use? Should we abandon part of our culture and become overly political correct, by

Anti-Islamic websitesAssalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],Anti-Islamic websites6 months ago in Personal More Like This
For Muslim brothers and sisters,
A questioner asked: "People are emailing me websites that attack Islam. They say... that we should send this out to everyone and tell them about it. But is this a good idea to send these sites to everyone? What about the non-Muslims? Should we tell them to be careful too? What should be done? Can we visit them at all? Should we warn others?"
One of the downsides of the internet is that it has given our critics and enemies an opportunity to publicly defame the religion of Islam. I guess this is the price of having freedom of speech. Sometimes you have to read and hear things which are just plain detestable.
The fact of the matter is that its enemies have defamed Islam from the very beginning and this is not about to change anytime soon. What's more, since Muslims are in a very weak position these days, the amount of anti-Islamic propaganda is on the rise from many quarters. I am sure we have all encountered numerous w
School Survival GuideAlright, so the new school year is approaching quickly so I thought it might be fun to create a School Survival Guide So hopefully I can come up with some good tips like Ned's DeclassifiedSchool Survival Guide10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Tip 1. Usually people save the best advice for last, but I'm gonna say it first; this applies for mostly high schoolers and middle schoolers: LOOK FOR YOUR BRIDESMAIDS, NOT YOUR GROOMS! (or if you're a dude, the other way around) Don't try to rush yourself into a relationship! You have tons of time to do that schtick later! FOCUS ON FRIENDS AND SCHOOL WORK!
Tip 2. While you're school shopping, think about getting one of those 5 Subject Notebooks, if you have block scheduling THIS WILL BE A LIFE SAVER! You don't have to have 5 different notebooks to carry everywhere and you won't have to visit your locker over and over and over~~ They also have folders in the dividers so you don't need tons of folders! Totally keeps you organized!

KMD Contest ideaAssalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],KMD Contest idea3 months ago in Personal More Like This
In today's world, everyone who wants attention goes and slanders the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- and gets the attention. Of course these people can never affect the reputation and greatness of the prophet of God. but they are always desperately trying.
Some islamophobes invented a day to insult the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- under freedom of expression. Every year when the time comes, they encourage people to draw nasty drawings attempting to ridicule and insult the prophet.
Most of their drawings don't even deserve to be called art. some people can't even draw a straight line correctly but they do an effort just to insult the last prophet of Islam.
I am pretty sure this year they will try to do the same. but I have a good plan to counter their wicked plan.
This year, in sha'Allah [by God's will] I am planning to hold a contest called "Know Mohammed Day" (KMD) in the same time they hold their event. The purpose is to encoura

WARNING, LONG JOURNAL
To tell you the truth, This journal entry should not have been here in the first place. but because of the fact that some Muslim brothers and sisters may not always know how to react in a way that reflect their true intentions or aim, I feel the necessity to write something about this issue and express my personal opinion about it.
From time to time, we hear about some people making sick cartoons depicting a corrupted doodle of the last prophet of the God, Mohammed -peace and blessings be upon him-. sometimes we also hear of some movies made for the sole purpose to vilify Islam and insult the prophet. I am not going to discuss whether these people have right to express themselves in such a way or not. the subject was covered countless times and it is pointless to repeat. what I want to talk about is the Muslim reaction and how it should be.
Usually, when we hear of such things (movie, cartoon, book...) we hear of the rea
