Sometimes, I stop scrolling up, and I have no fixed direction for reading. Do you really still have a problem with this?Sarvis wrote:Oh, what the hell. You were saying they target airplanes instead of other American targets because only "rich people" use airplanes. So do you believe American poor people, who are rich by most foreign standards, not use planes? Or do American poor people still count as rich to terrorists, in which case an airplane is no more a valid target than Times Square would be?
It's ironic that you say that AND Times Square was recently a target of attempted terrorism. I'm simply going to let what I've already said stand, it makes sense and there's ample evidence, especially considering that the average plane ticket costs more than what two median households in Vietnam make in a year. And we're not even talking about Africa yet!Sarvis wrote:Cause I gotta tell you, when I was a kid and needed food stamps to stay fed... I still occasionally got on an airplane.
If you think you were poor, it's because you don't know what poor actually is.
So please explain why Terrorists target, and will continue to target, planes when there are so many other valid targets? Only rich people use crowded malls at Christmas, right?
In fact, only rich people use anything at all on American soil... and most of these other things have piss poor security compared to an airplane even BEFORE the draconian TSA measures.
And yes, I'll talk about being poor. Because if you can't afford/obtain food, you're poor no matter what country you're living in or what non-food objects you're surrounded by.
Are you poor if you can't afford/obtain food, yet are able to afford/obtain a carton of cigarettes a day?
Yes, because every poor person in America smokes a carton a day. :roll:
I didn't say they did. I just asked if a person who buys a carton of smokes a day and can't afford to eat is considered poor.
