He says he is red flagging you. I don't know what that is, but suspect it involves trying to get you banned.

I read and watch those news in my local paper/TVs here in Indonesia.

So sorry for you that you cannot get those news in the west.

As meaningless as saying:

So much irony in this very tragic event. FBI had failed to find evidence of older brother's link to terroristic organizations when Russians asked them to and now they blame US laws and constitution on their failure

I do hope that US government will realize now that terrorism is international and it will eventually cost you if you treat terrorists as "friends" just because they are enemy of your enemy.

Both of you are correct.

But we must be careful when ascribing the term "terorrist" to an organization. Many organizations that the US govt brand as "nationalistic struggle movement" because they are the enemies of US' enemies, but are considered "terrorist" by others, and vice versa.

"gringo" isn't comparable to "wetback" in any way. the former is a term to denote american and western culture or people associated with it and usually has a neutral connotation whereas the latter is a racist slur used by rednecks to refer to latin americans immigrants in particular but also people of latin american origin in general and always has a negative connotation.

And yes, I do hope you get banned but considering the quality of the moderation around here, i wouldn't be surprised if you get a free pass.

This from wikipedia:

Quote:
Gringo (pron.: /ˈɡrɪŋɡoʊ/, Spanish: [ˈgɾiŋgo], Portuguese: [ˈgɾĩgu]) is a slang Spanish and Portuguese word used in Ibero-America, to denote foreigners, often from the United States. The term can be applied to someone who is actually a foreigner, or it can denote a strong association or assimilation into foreign (particularly US) society and culture.

In Spanish it does not have a negative connotation.[1] Roger Axtell, a travel etiquette expert, notes that "[t]he word gringo is not necessarily a bad word. It is slang but is derogatory only in its use and context."[2]

The word was used in Spain long before it crossed the Atlantic to denote foreign, non-native speakers of Spanish.[3]

You will also note that Wikipedia classifies it under "religious and ethnic slurs". Regardless of its meaning in Spanish it is an offensive term in English, and you used it in an English sentence on an English website. The intended meaning was clear.

If you do not like ethnic slurs being thrown around then I suggest you do not do it yourself.

Czech ambassador to the United States having to step in and explain the difference between Czechs and Chechens.

""I am concerned to note in the social media a most unfortunate misunderstanding," Ambassador Petr Gandalovic wrote. "The Czech Republic and Chechnya are two very different entities -- the Czech Republic is a Central European country; Chechnya is a part of the Russian Federation."

How exactly did communists kill in the name of atheism? Communists killed in the name of... communism. An ideology based on a dogma that involved elements of anti-clericalism.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
