Got your calculator handy?

Let's talk really horrific human tragedy...

A stampede at a hilltop temple in northern India has killed at least 120 people, police say.

Indian temples are regularly hit by stampedes, as huge crowds of Hindu devotees flock to make offerings at festival times.

There have been at least three fatal stampedes in the country so far during 2008, although the numbers killed were far smaller than in the latest incident.
So lemme see... in one single event... that's 30 years of Canadian taser fatalities.

And no one, outside of their families, will ever even know these people's names.

Funny how that works.

UPDATE: At least 145 people...

WELCOME, YET AGAIN, READERS OF CANADIAN CYNIC

Two links in four hours, CC? Really... I'm flattered. Still... it's nowhere near his record of nine links... in one post.

It almost makes me feel guilty... that I've been neglecting him.

Get well soon, sweetie.

FROM THE COMMENTS: CC sends his flying monkeys...
"How appropriate you call your blog "halls of macadamia"...'cause you're fucking NUTS!"
And...
"I'm calling you a fucking asshole, a liar, a coward and an intellectual half-wit who probably couldn't find his own ass with a compass, a mirror and a flashlight."
**********

LAST WORD: Hey, Cynic... this is interesting.

I see via Sitemeter... I had a few referrals from your links to my blog... that originated at the Royal Military College in Kingston.

You've apparently got fans all over the place.

Lucky you.

Neo there isn't enough Midol globally to cure that chicklet, alas the left want our Police Officers to be replaced with "Peace Officers". These Peace Officers will be expected to roam our streets blowing kisses at the criminal scum that infect our streets and society.

Honestly the leftards have been in power the majority of the time and we've seen what "Get tough" on crime looks like once the left get their hands on the Justice System. They coddle criminals and spit on the victims of crime. The word "Punishment" is aliegn to the left, appeasement and pandering to scum sucking criminals is more their thang.

So, using your logic, over 40000 people die in traffic accidents in the US each year...so lemme see...that's over 13 times the fatalities caused by 9/11.
"And no one, outside of their families, will ever even know these people's names."

How appropriate you call your blog "halls of macadamia"...'cause you're fucking NUTS!

"s looking for an analogous moral equivalence splutters... that's over 13 times the fatalities caused by 9/11."

i bet YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW what you just said.

but say hi to cc for me.

s said...

I don't know what I said?! Haha. Just pointing out the stupidity of your comparisons...obviously a waste of time.

Neo Conservative said...

"s crows... obviously a waste of time."

see... that was my point, dumbstick... unless you actually can explain it.

Let me have a try.

You denigrate and minimize the deaths by taser here in North America by pointing to a horrible tragedy in another country.

Mr/Ms S then wonders why, using your logic, people are more concerned with the deaths on 9/11 and less concerned by the deaths caused by traffic accidents.

I think you're both wrong to be using the deaths of anyone to make political points, but that was my understanding of the metaphor. Perhaps S can correct me.

@ rose, that is the biggest pile of lies, half truths and generalizing BS that I've read in a long time.

Thank you. You've made my morning.

Oh, neo, please feel free to outdo yourself with some kind of childish tag line, I'd think that given that this is Monday and that you're probably a little tired like the rest of us (must be hard to function when your dogma won't let you sip lat├ęs) you might want to warm up with some sort of comment about my sexuality.

"cameron campbell says... warm up with some sort of comment about my sexuality."

cameron... there's something unique and comment-worthy about your sexuality? well... i'm sure there's a forum over at rabble for that sort of thing.

and hey, whilst thou art speaking of denigration...

"verily you're an asshole of the first water."

anyway, cam... i guess the point i was making is that... everybody wants to save the whales... but nobody wants to help mom with the dishes.

an armed man killed by a cop... that's just a blip on the radar... to most of us.

in the big, bad world... there are always more important fish to fry.

Cameron Campbell said...

Oh neo, that wasn't denigration, that was a fact or rather FACT™!™

Neo Conservative said...

"cameron campbell says... that was a fact or rather FACT™!"

forsooth cameron, verily it is... because you say so.

Cameron Campbell said...

No, I was just using the conservative rule...

Plus if it walks like a fucking asshole and lies and twists and hides from real debate by attacking another blog and ignore anything said it and calls anyone who dares disagree with it names like a fucking asshole, well then it would appear that one would be well within one's rights to suggest that it is indeed a fucking asshole.

So we're clear, I'm calling you a fucking asshole, a liar, a coward and an intellectual half-wit who probably couldn't find his own ass with a compass, a mirror and a flashlight.

Just so we're clear.

Now, also so we're clear, I'm calling you these things after watching you lie and run from real debate, and use bold like it has meaning and basically flail about like a headless chicken.

you're just too cheap to pay for actual phone sex?

no wonder you're so hot for cc.

Cameron Campbell said...

It always comes down to sex for your puritanical little pilgrims doesn't it.

You still haven't addressed one point made by anyone other than your little greek chorus, no matter how reasoned or calmly they are or are made. If they disagree with you, you mock.

So all I'm doing is pointing out that you're a fucking asshole.

It seems to be the only thing you respond to.

oh, cameron... seriously... ya gotta stop... y'er giving me a hernia.

Cameron Campbell said...

Oh neo, what I love about fucking asshole liars like you is the fluidity that your distortions and lies come tripping off your tongue (or off your fingers, as it were).

nomi tried to be polite, you accused her of something, reverted to full troll mode and shut her down (this was in another thread). Hell, in this very thread I tried quite hard to explain s's point politely. Hell, s tried to debate politely, and you went on the attack pretty much right off the bat.

Because you're a fucking asshole liar who's only defense, who's only recourse is to push at people with such outrageous bullshit that they either snap (OMG I TOLD U TEH LEFTBOTS/TARDS/WHATEVER 8 YEAR OLD JOKE I THINK IS FUNNY TODAY ARE MEAN11!!!111) or leave (See? They lack the intellectual rigor to defend their position against my amazing logic. FLAWLESS VICTORY FOR ME!)

"cameron campbell says... what I love about fucking asshole liars like you"

hey, cameron... i get it, you're an angry guy... and it's just not fair that this is the only blog on the interwebs... so you're just forced to come here and put up with me.

"So all I'm doing is pointing out that you're a fucking asshole."

"rose" continues to be extremely fat.

Cameron Campbell said...

Oh, I'm not forced to, I figure it's like free tv to watch you distort and lie and twist and move the goal post and never, ever even begin to honestly debate any point with anyone who even remotely disagrees with you.

Neo Conservative said...

"cameron says... I figure it's like free tv"

wow... now i sorta feel sorry for you.

it's like the guy who made the comment above this one here... who doesn't seem to realise... "anybody can lose a few pounds... but stupid is forever".

well... hope you're having fun, pal.

That's why I don't bother to mention rose is a buffoon as well. That's not going to change.
