Why shouldnt North Dakota have a nuclear weapons programme?
The US has nuclear weapons. We got silos and shit all over Montana/ND and SD. Who are we to say that North Dakota is not entitled to secede and have their own nuclear arsenal?

Everyone in North Dakota has the right to bear arms. Gun wankers claim this is to hold the gover'mint to account and allow the people to overthrow an unjust gub'mint.

The government has nuclear arms.

Pro-nuke conservatives often argue that the US can only protect itself against other nuclear powers by having nukes too.

Therefore it logically follows that citizens of North Dakota have a constitutional right to own nuclear arms.

unfortunately, this is an exact replica of most gun advocate logic.
your 2nd amendment right to bear arms defeats my right to avoid getting shot. or nuked.

I just don't trust a failed and erratic state like North Dakota to act in a rational fashion with nuclear arms.

@ND: I have some questions for you:

1. Do you believe that one of the main reasons for people being constitutionally allowed to bear arms was/is to prevent federal tyranny? YES or NO?


ND (879 D)
06 Jul 17 UTC
I own a lot of guns all are for home security. I believe a reason for the second d amendment is to prevent foreign aggression, hostile actors, and tyrants
ND (879 D)
06 Jul 17 UTC
My reason for ownership is home security and I do have two guns including a 1936 ussr rifle for historical value.
ND (879 D)
06 Jul 17 UTC
Well two historical guns in addition to my modern ones for above stated reasons

Could "tyrants" mean a federal government overstepping it's constitutional authority? Many of your fellow conservatives seem to think so.

I know this is a joke, but as someone who once lived in North Dakota it's worth mentioning that, yes, North Dakota does have a lot of silos, particularly near Minot afb. Also, the personnel who guard these solos are subjected to some very difficult testing and drills to maintain their credential for guarding such, which it was revealed some years back that they had been cheating on. So maybe that's an argument against?

Why shouldn't North Korea have a nuclear weapons programme?
The US has nuclear weapons. The UK does. France does. China does. Russia does. Israel probably does. India and Pakistan might also.

Who are we to say that North Korea is not similarly entitled?

Unit A attacks an enemy unit. At the same time units B and C support HOLD unit A.
What is the defensive strength of unit A? Is it 2 beceuse it is supported by 2, or is the support wasted because unit A is attacking rather than holding?

Hillary Clinton found guilty on 237 charges
Treason, Money Laundering through her foundation, illegally checking her facebook, illegally deleting an email from a south african prince who left her millions in his will, Regecide, criminal neglect, intent to have intent, causing rising sea levels, orchestrating the murder of rival DNC members, 9/11, and a whole host of other charges ranging from multi-accounting to impersonating Jesus. Lock her up. So glad this criminal investigation paid off.

CNN found the Reddit user who created the WWE wrestling meme
http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/04/politics/kfile-reddit-user-trump-tweet/index.html
This is just sad. A news organization so triggered by a meme that they would go after the poor guy and threaten to release identity to get an apology and is still threatening to release his identity. You can argue if it was appropriate that Trump tweeted this but this is not ok. This is freedom of speech and he might get severely punished for it. Apparently CNN never understood that "1984" is fiction.
