EngageTheRebels says

Guns make the world safer because the more United Statians who get killed, the less of them there are to annoy the real world. 

Wow and they have the nerve to say that we Americans are racist?

The surrounding states and counties have guns so that's way it did not work her durf.

My question: Then how come it's less of a problem in those surrounding areas while yours is the only one with this problem, huh?

*cricket sound*

I'm waiting.

-Iraq as a state today wouldn't have existed--this artificial unit that forced three groups against each other in one country. Same with Syria. obvious benefits here are Saddam, Al-Qaeda, 9/11, or ISIL,
-Palestine wouldn't be a hellhole for us.
-Israelis (or rather, just Jews) might move there anyways, but would differ in that they would have the rule of law forcing them to keep just in their dealings.
-The Ottoman Empire might have found a way to modernize its government, and rally the various peoples under it round a new more effective hub, or fragmented in a manner that is more natural, and less likely to cause long term violence (as was the case in the Baltic States and Muslim majority countries in the aftermath of the collapse of the USSR).
-Our economy would have probably modernized completely, rather than partially: basically we're stuck in the year 1918 in many ways, and haven't left that vicious circle. increased train traffic from the (then under construction) Hejaz railway and Berlin-Baghdad rail way would have meant even greater overland trade than is possible today, and much sooner. Both were destroyed, or curtailed, because of WWI.
-Al-Saud wouldn't have become important outside the area...Islam would remain as it was: hated by Europeans because it was "decadent" and "libertine" (I'm not making that up). :P

That is just the shit (and only part of it), that would have been different where I'm from. Basically, no US intervention=better lives for everyone.

No ww2, no cold war, no millions upon millions dead as a result of those two wars, so yup.

Seriously libertine?

Hard to say. We would have been two countries, so it's kind of doubtful we would have grown into the monstrosity that manipulated the end of WWI, set the stage for WWII, engaged in a cold war, and ended up with the huge, out-of-control government we have today.

Contrary to what the non-thinking Lincoln-worshippers assert, there is NO WAY slavery would have lasted until today. The Confederacy had even fewer resources than the Union did, add in the lost infrastructure from all the battles and they couldn't have kept slavery going no matter how many laws they passed.

The South might have industrialized faster than it did since the North would have had to compete on equal footing with other countries absent the protectionism.

But, of course, there might well have been other wars, other tyrants, other things that happen to reverse whatever good might have been done. Who can say?

I would tell people that even if the south won that slavery would certainly have faded eventually. Remember the last country in the Western Hemisphere to abolish slavery was not the United States, it was Brazil in 1888

I always wondered about this. What do you think would have happened if the south won?

You'd think they'd remember that when creationists pulled that crap it only made YouTube atheists more successful.  Some people never learn.

There was one guy who used his ratings as proof that he is wrong. Uh does that mean these hell preachers are correct? (Look at the top comments they are pro creationism/hell.)

By their argument these guys are right.

I've seen hitler videos with comments going along the line saying stuff like death to jews with 50 or more thumbs up with opposing comments in the negative. Does that prove him right?

Does this idiot know that inciting a Riot is a serious offense.

These people remind me of Romans who would hide behind their legions while they kill their enemies for them

Or the Germans who would hide behind the SS and the Gestapo while they round up Jews.

Were they non violent? Yeah fucking right! Violent Cowards is what they were.

Are bumbling husbands, irredeemably evil warmongering men and expert men being outperformed by "female intuition" still getting free passes?

Then I don't want to hear about it feminists.  Fuck off.

One thing I found just mind numbingly dumb was when she put forth the idea that since the bodies of women fading is a part of objectification. LADY every dead npc fades in those games INCLUDING THE MEN. As for hookers dropping cash men drop both guns and cash.

They did a beautiful job with this one:

I think these lyrics actually work better musically!

Oh you should see Hunchback of Notre Dame in french. 

The singer in this vid has an absolutely beautiful voice, at least in my opinion not to mention it is proper since it does take place in france.

also there is Anastasia in russian. Again a beautiful singing voice in my opinion
