Orientals invented noodles and gunpowder. Yet couldnt figure to make tomato sauce and guns to go with their insignificant inventions. THAT oriental superiority couldnt put a man on the moon or come up with a simple combustion engine. Nor the wheel or textiles. (brought to them by Caucasoids from Europe 3000 years ago)Go and you tube Chinese mummies and watch the documentary. Pretty mind blowing what whites were doing while chinamen were still making mud huts and negro were doing what they are still doing. Nothing

just an honest observation. you seem to like to rape defenseless women and children, and kill imprisoned palestinians, not to mention blow up iconic buildings with thousands of victims while blaming someone else so it would make sense that one of you would want to shoot up a mall,too, if you didn't get the deal you wanted from some goy vendor.

Plenty of "I have been following ZH for years and only recently decided to sign up" stories lately here. There was one guy here once saying a few years ago that he had been following ZH since 2005.I think that anybody can make a valid contribution here no matter how long he has been with us but I've noticed these newbees here lately either trashing ZH or trolling. Some seem to be trying to put ZH in a bad daylight.

"I think that anybody can make a valid contribution here no matter how long he has been with us but I've noticed these newbees here lately either trashing ZH or trolling. Some seem to be trying to put ZH in a bad daylight."I'd say 95% of them. There are a few who are respectful and bring something to the table to consider but by & large the majority of the newbs are trying to drag it down.

There may be some newish faux-anti-Jewish types about as well.Here's an example of how it's done: The Double Identity of an "Anti-Semitic" Commenter Like many other news websites, Common Dreams has been plagued by inflammatory anti-Semitic comments following its stories. But on Common Dreams these posts have been so frequent and intense they have driven away donors from a nonprofit dependent on reader generosity. A Common Dreams investigation has discovered that more than a thousand of these damaging comments over the past two years were written with a deceptive purpose by a Jewish Harvard graduate in his thirties who was irritated by the website's discussion of issues involving Israel.https://www.commondreams.org/hambaconeggs

There are only two types of people in this world...people who overuse the word "community" and those who are brainwashed to overuse the word "community" by the former. I've always been fascinated by the weakness of mind in the latter.And yet the word just came bursting from the brain of 44_shooter like it was second nature...as you say, this is an internet message board not a community and no one said "community" until he did.Its just fascinating ;-)

FYI, Orange Co. is not considered upstate. It's part of the NYC metro area. And since we know the NYC area has strict gun laws...not to mention a much lower percentage of mouth breathers than upstate...this must be fake news.

While it may be considered not to be upstate and while it may be considered to be part of the NYC metropolitan area, it is in fact not a part of New York City. Therefore, it is not subject to the ordinances of New York City including New York City gun control ordinances. Whether or not New York City has strict gun control ordinances is of no relevance whatsoever in this matter.As to mouth breathers in New York City: Have you been to Queens or the Bronx or Staten Island or the outer reaches of Brooklin?
