ITT: We discuss the right to bear arms
« on: July 23, 2013, 09:23:09 PM »
I am a strong proponent of the right to bear arms.  Without it, our arms could become too cold.



Note: It has come to my attention that some may try to use the unfortunately named title of this thread to attempt a political discussion.  Please refrain from such activities.  This thread is exclusively to discuss bear arms.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

I've always been a staunch supporter of our right to bear arms. It's rather comfortable in winter and scares all potential robbers away.
That is the land of lost content,

Who is that (I'm guess not Franklin), and whoever it is, what happened to his nose?

May we also discuss the right to bare arms in this thread, or are you a bear-only type?

The question is, do bears have the right to bare arms? And if so, should bears impose bare arms on bears who oppose bare arms? I admit that these are difficult questions to bear.

I believe in a fully inclusive approach to this issue and will vigorously support both bare and bear arms.

I am more interested in the right to arm bears.  I find hunting repulsive and think bears should be able to defend themselves.

Don't be ridiculous. Bears already have powerful arms that they used for fighting and hunting. What kind of bear do you think would survive in the wild without any arms?

Bears already have arms.  It appears, however, that elephants do not.

This thread is not about noses.  Be that as it may, though, the discoloration (?) of not-Franklin's nose could very well be a result of hunting bears in bright sun under the influence of too much alcohol with no zinc-oxide to put on it.  The nose, that is, not the bear.

Thank you, J Michael, for keeping this thread on topic.  It is quite shocking the lengths people will go to subvert the very important topic at hand regarding bear arms.

Personally I find the topic of armed elephants more important.  Elephants have been going to war for a long time.  Hannibal armed elephants and entered Italy.

What you say about elephants and war is quite true.  However, elephants are well known, in spite of their great girths and strength, to be totally armless.  Back to bears:

Oh, that's a relief! My Uncle Morty from Florida is a bear who loves bear arms, and I hate it when he's discriminated against!

Nah, Uncle Morty was originally from up here in the north. He sold raincoats for Harry Fleming for 38 years and was a wizard at it. He moved down to Florida to retire back in the 90s.

I thought as much.  Northern bears, well....here, this says it better:

Well east coast bears are hip
I really dig those styles they wear
And the southern bears with the way they talk
They knock me out when Im down there

The mid-west farmers daughters really make you feel alright
And the northern bears with the way they kiss
They keep their boyfriends warm at night

I wish they all could be california
I wish they all could be california
I wish they all could be california bears


The west coast has the sunshine
And the bears all get so tanned
I dig a french bikini on hawaii island
Dolls by a palm tree in the sand

I been all around this great big world
And I seen all kinds of bears
Yeah, but I couldnt wait to get back in the states
Back to the cutest bears in the world

I wish they all could be california
I wish they all could be california
I wish they all could be california bears


I wish they all could be california
(bears, bears, bears yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be california
(bears, bears, bears yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be california
(bears, bears, bears yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be california
(bears, bears, bears yeah I dig the)

That is one stylish bear.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

I believe bears are getting a somewhat unfair deal in this thread, being cast as either violent or cutesy. What about realism folks!? Thus I will provide a corrective, in the form of two underrated cartoons about bears:

You people don't understand the spirit of Christian bearology when it comes to cases like this. You are following the letter of the administrative law without taking into consideration the deeper spiritual meaning. Consider this key text from the Old Testament:

"For, said Hushai, thou knowest thy father and his men, that they be mighty men, and they be chafed in their minds, as a bear robbed of her whelps in the field: and thy father is a man of war, and will not lodge with the people." (2 Sam. 17:8)

What does "mighty men" mean here? Not mighty in terms of physical strength, but in terms of humility. They are mightily humble! Yet their minds are chafed--but why? Because someone has done something to this poor bear--has, in fact, robber her of her children? This is more than she can bear. So what then? The mighty men go to war, not of a physical kind with shields and swords, but with prayer! Fasting! Alms! These mighty men shall console and help the bear, and the child-bears. In fact, they will not lodge with the people--that is, they will not go to the lodge to sleep with the people, until this is accomplished. Do you not see what a righteous man will do for a bear in need? A bear in need is a bear indeed! Now then, if this bear in the cartoon wants to befriend a primate, to make them part of their life, to even give them a juicy gig in the cast, who are we to argue with them? We should accept this, not look down on him for it!

As a cross-thread joke I wanted to post a pic of a bear with a beard. A google image search did provide this one (wut?):

http://www.theprintblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/ff_1_bear-beard-beer.preview.jpg

But the overwhelming majority of the pics it showed were of a different type of bear. I should have known...

That is definitely strange.

Get that image filter turned on, young man!  ;)
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Thank you, Elephant!  I knew you'd come through! ;)

This comes as an enormous relief.  I LOVE bears and cats and bearcats.  That bearcats have BOTH right and left arms is absolutely phenomenal!  Now, is the one in the picture just smiling or is that woman just really stupid?  :o :o

...A black bear walked into the bar at the Alaskan Hotel in downtown Juneau on Monday night.

Now wait a gosh dang second! We may indeed allow the right to bear arms, but you can slap me sideways and call me Susan if I'll let you publicly promote the right to bear marriages!

(Sorry if this is taking the joke too far -- I mean it sincerely. Bear with me.)

Oh! That like the staritsa we could bear witness to how our venerable and God-bearing father Seraphim of Sarov fed the bear with his arm without the bear feeding on him. Let us bear sorrows, persecutions and slander with gratitude, and raise our bear-strong arms to Heaven, and let the Holy Spirit bear down on us as it did bear down on him.

It's shopped with, I think, an image of Putin that appears in other shops, where he is made to do this and that.  :angel:

Yeah, it's shopped. The water is too shallow for Putin to be swimming like that.

Clearly it is shopped. If it was real life, Putin would be chasing the bear who would be frantically trying to swim away from him.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.
