@15: Nothing he said was anti-Semitic. You're starting to sound like my conservative (and slightly racist) uncle, who thinks that anyone who opposes current Israeli foreign policy is anti-Jew. If you're a Gentile, you yourself could be called anti-Semitic for trying to use the gravity of the Shoah and the deaths of the twelve million to try and bully others, as whatshisface said. If you're a Jew, I say you're a disgrace to our people for crying "anti-Semite" in the total absence of provocation, thereby weakening the term.
Go blow yourself, Five Large.
@20: 1638 kids died from abuse at the hands of unmarried parents/guardians? Now THAT'S a statistic I can't seem to verify. The latest year of data that I've been able to find is 2011, and only 1570 child abuse fatalities total were reported. There was no mention anywhere as to the marital status of perpetrators.
So it looks like you're lying again. If the point you were trying to make was true...wouldn't you just be able to use the facts instead of making things up? Think about that a while and get back to me.

@3: That's actually fairly easy to deal with. Just build everything underground and use rock and regolith to shield the place.

There's a big difference between legalizing marijuana and legalizing more drugs. Opiates, amphetamines, and most other controlled substances are going to be kept tightly controlled, and for very good reason.
Marijuana is comparable to alcohol in some ways; similar level/quality of impairment/alteration, minus the danger of hepato- and neurotoxicity with overuse but plus some unusual effects on memory system after a while. Neither of them is much like most harder drugs.

Enough with the Snowden fandom...it's not quite as bad as the hysteria over Chelsea (nee Bradley) Manning, but he's getting a lot more support than his actions merit.
@15: We have yet to hear (no pun intended) from any deaf person who can understand what he's saying.
