Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Individual freedoms, eh? Off to jail with these blackguards!

  2. I'm not a sociologist or political by any stretch, but isn't the 'think tank', beside being politically biased to 'liberals', missing the bloody obvious - the conflict being the state vs. the citizens? If this really was a 'right' vs. 'left' thing, the Republicans should have wiped the floor with the Democrats in the last election.
  3. Ah but how it tends to work is that only the right sort of people tend to enjoy these individual freedoms and then only the right sort of freedom. I bet those freedoms don't extend to abortion for example.
  4. All doesn't sound very 2nd Amendment friendly, does it?
  5. That distant rumbling noise you heard was JJH blowing his top.
  6. Well, naturally, if they disagree with the majority/mainstream opinion, they must perforce be dangerous criminals.

  7. the report says. “The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.”

    Evil doers! Put down those black rifles!
  8. Maybe this sort of shit is why they're not willing to give them up.
  9. In all honesty mind you the last time anyone attempted to modify the gun laws significantly you got a train of events which culminated in the Alfred P. Murrah building shifting twenty feet sideways with a little assistance from a Ryder van full of ANFO.

    So they probably have a point.
  10. I'm still struggling with the concept of a leftie liberal thinktank at the Upper Hudson River School for Young Gentlemen and Ladies. I always had the sense that West Point was a bit like an Ordensburg, just not so fluffy and caring.

    Judging from the comments below the article, West Point has been infiltrated by a fifth column of pinkie, progressive socialists. I blame Napoleon.
  12. This must be what happens when you combine officer training with a university! Bloody leftie academics!
  13. It's a University, university tenure doesn't tend to encourage reality - even in Hogwarts. Are there groups in the US that could cause problems - yup as Timothy McVeigh proves. Does this mean that this is where the main threat to the US comes from - probably not.
  14. From the study:

    Or in layman's terms - 'they're as thick as mince'.

    And interesting to see that this isn't a Suth'n thing.
