@Glinner He calls him "hoax boy"-- but he thinks he's not one of the "nasty people." He needs serious introspection: Pot Will Be Legal Just About Everywhere Soon
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorYes! Like the sort of person who would, say, bully a 14 year-old boy

Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorYou want the simple one-sentence explanation for what caused ISIS?
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorWhen you're jonesing for turtles, you gotta do what you gotta do., Telegraph trying to be cool. accused of 'persistent' illegal hacking at security tribunal.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorIf not, then that just leaves doing it in order to be seen doing it (ego, show, etc)-- is that where we are when it comes to killing people?[Release] Court documents reveal oversight body struggling to control GCHQ domestic hacking
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorDo we really think that there's a lack of firepower in the region being directed at IS and that Britain needs to step in to fill the void?'What shall we do?' - Drop more bombs in Middle East with no clear military objective, stoking a refugee crisis. 'Sir, that's brilliant.'
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@DelhiDean @pete_sinclair And also assumes that British bombs will somehow be effective where US/France & Russian ones have not.@DelhiDean @pete_sinclair That rests on the underlying assumption that "doing something" (bombing, in this case) is effective ("helps").Followed up by a red herring appeal to emotion. the hits just keep on coming -- the ever popular "just *do something* argument" -- this one from a journalist. gutter press in action: see this from Matthew Barbour, freelance journalist & contributing Editor to The Sun
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@hugorifkind Your argument *form* is weak -- not just the particular argument itself. Also, equivocation here: "strong" != "certain."Arguments from Analogy are horribly weak but often *seem* strong. And they often lead to red herrings. the first reply is an argument from analogy, well, you're not starting out on a strong footing. give you -- Islamophobia expressed with emojis by Cher. Sounds like something Yoko Ono might order at a bar. they say neoliberalism isn't a cult (via @cordeliers)
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorEvery so often, you see something that makes you question everything about the way you've been living your life.

4 newspapers tie Corbyn's name to airstrikes in Syria. Wasn't it Cameron's proposal? What exactly is going on here?
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor"Cameron chains himself to Downing Street railings to try to stop war but bloodthirsty Corbyn won't be stopped"
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorCorbyn: now responsible for wars he opposes. (via @WritersofColour)
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor"Canada woman" -- WTF? "Canadian woman." evidence of why that Sun poll was worthless, from someone who conducted it.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorIt was prima facie--> Britain's Newspapers 'Systematically Undermined' Jeremy Corbyn From The Start, Research Claims Reupped, left out an "it"@Glinner Oh man, your background just takes it into weirdness overload -- Delingpoled like in that deep dream shit:"It's about ethics in resource distribution." you bring yourself to think about killing other people largely in terms of how it will affect party politics? Welcome to journalism.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorUK govt lawyers: UK could be prosecuted for war crimes over missiles sold to Saudis used to kill Yemeni civilians
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@CPMacL2008 @tombinns"We need new powers in the wake of...there will be safeguards..." It's always the same & people always fall for it. a difference 4 years makes in NYT headlines
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorThis is great. Read this (HT @tauriqmoosa)
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@blunderball1 Brings us full circle back to ethical bombs -- we kill *only the acceptable number* of innocents when we bomb.Oof. Great piece. RT @deedot255: We can save atheism from the New Atheists like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@blunderball1 Using the US as an example of a discriminate actor doesn't really help your case -- read the drone papers, for one.@blunderball1 It was implied in your response -- that somehow involvement in "that" (innocent deaths) could be avoided if only more careful.
@jayrosen_nyu Haven't read it, but bet that's "swatting," no?@blunderball1 It was an extrapolation, yes, from the base notion there could be discriminate (or "safe") bombing where only deserving die.@UnInterlocutor *done byWe need to believe that our superior tech affords us a superior morality with which to kill people. Otherwise, we're just like the others.If the innocent happen to die, then it's by done those more indiscriminate than us. We *need* to believe the fairy tales of "smart bombs."Of course, it's this kind of self-deception that allows us to prosecute endless wars -- the belief that we only kill the deserving.Our bombs are special. Our bombs are ethical bombs that *only* kill the Bad Guys™. for him, I would too -- it's a puerile ritual. The is what losing "the war on terror" looks like: And framed as "extremist:" when Roof literally wrote out a manifesto explaining why he shot up the church & the media was like "what could have motivated him"?
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorburden for white terrorism: 150,000% higher than all other forms of terrorism
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor#PlannedParenthood gunman shoots four cops. Puts his hands up, isn't shot. This is why white people think the system works. It does for us.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorEvery conservative who circulated the evil lie that Planned Parenthood “sells baby parts” shares responsibility for the Colorado attack.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorOfficial: Suspect in Planned Parenthood shooting said 'no more baby parts' after arrest
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorSources now indicating that the Colorado Springs terrorist did not use encryption, but rather guns, raising many questions about encryption.

@mhound5 @ProfDavidNutt Yeah, I understand that the "if this is true" argument is pro regulation, but too quick to accept premise as fact.They're using "The Message" to sell Lacoste shit -- a song about poverty and desperation. it works now is leaders engage in pseudo-secret war for months/yrs then meekly ask permission from public immediately after mass traumas
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorDid I dream the part where UK admitted it was already bombing in July and killed two of its citizens in Sept?
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorPut them under surveillance. Close their churches. Profile them. Drone their weddings. Deport their leaders.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorWhat a strange place Britain has become. Cartoon via @BrookesTimes
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@ProfDavidNutt They don't know what respondents *actually* consumed. They can't even know if there were contaminants present.@ProfDavidNutt Yes, but that study hardly conclusive. Small sample. Undefined terms (%s needed for "high potency") & street terms ("skunk").Not science: Street terms used. Undefined terms used (what % needed to be "high potency"?). No idea what respondents actually consumed.@Glinner Read "establishment" for "newspapers."@TweeterReynolds @TomCLloyd @KingsCollegeLon @KingsIoPPN They define "high potency" as "skunk-like" -- this is nuts. Strain? THC%? CBD%?

Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorIt feels good, though: strong and purposeful.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorAnd The Terrorists™ cheered another victory -- "we don't need to destroy them, they'll do it to themselves." assumptions: 1) "Doing something" (bombing, in this case) will always be to their loss 2) And their loss will always be to our benefit.CBC: Canadian airstrike alleged to have killed 10 civilians in Iraq (Mosul) - Defense Dept previously denied
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorOf course: 2007: "Benn stands by his decision to back the war in Iraq"
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorThis isn't about safety from others -- it's about monitoring the wider public. Mass surveillance for its own sake -- for the power & controlThe fact that small ISPs won't be bound by #snooperscharter illustrates its target is not "wrongdoers" -- but the populous in general.Very good piece on why the #SnoopersCharters won't work – its drafters don't understand the internet
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutor@Glinner Shhh, they're our "friends and allies" in the region.One reason why there may be more focus on #nps deaths rather #heroin deaths #hht2015
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorIt's a very naive & one dimensional position, but it feels good & satisfies emotional drives -- precisely when reason needs to prevail.The "might as well act" (*do something*) presupposes that it's not possible to worsen or extend the situation through action. #ForeverWarAmazing how many think that bombing people (*do something*) is a zero sum game. Military's own term: "blowback." is my article about bombing Syria - if everyone reads this I reckon we'll have it all sorted by Tuesday
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorPerpetual War 101: we must bomb them to stop an attack on these shores but, I warn you, by bombing them they will attack these shores.

My eyes! The goggles do nothing!’s Syria plan: US, Saudi bombing: hasn’t worked. France bombing: hasn’t worked Russia bombing: hasn’t worked. UK bombing: will work.
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorLot of holes in Cameron case for bombing Syria. No clear strategy. Where are the 70,000 Free Syrian Army fighters?
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorWell, in the context of talking about one kid you posted a picture of another kid killing someone. That's how., "publicity coup" -- Dave doesn't want to lose. I thought the point of a vote is to determine the outcome. lays his toys out on the floor and shows off his bestest ones to all the other coalition children.
.@RichardDawkins's a condensed version here: should post this every time Dawkins makes a twitter splash, but not sure I could keep up: enforcement took more stuff from people than burglars did last year @_cingraham Asset #forfeiture out of control
Retweeted by ¬InvitedInterlocutorIf so, it's a catalogue of them -- hospital contacted them telling them they were bombing a hospital -- they kept on
