Do I give a damn?

(No, for those who might have taken my question literally Big Grin)

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Nothing remarkable about that house - there are a million like it.

RE: Adolf Hitler's birth house to be demolished
I have mixed views on the idea. On the one hand I understand not wanting to preserve a shrine for neo-nazis to visit but there are many other Hitler-related sites that should be preserved and those would also be used in that way. The 'anti-shrine' argument doesn't strike me as very strong. I'm uneasy about any proposal that seems like it might be trying to sweep history under the rug which is how this sounds to me.

Maybe turn it into a Holocaust museum or a center for Jewish studies or something that recognizes the history while condemning it rather than erasing it.

I don't see much of a point in destroying this house. History won't go away.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Pretty dumb...

If the building is still serviceable, knocking it down to prevent morons from worshiping it as a shine is a waste of time.

You could put up a kosher Starbucks - and the whackos would still visit "the place of birth".....

You can't stop stupid......

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

It looks like the Austria's Interior Minister has changed his mind about the demolition.

Would it be rude to go there and urinate on the walls?
