No it is not. They are allowed to exist but their activities are preposterous.
A new high speed rail system in California? Well I live here in California and I say Yes, some companies are protesting.

We need a bit more than that: who is protesting and why? L
Farmers are protesting because the rail line is going to cut through some water canals and pipes. During construction on the track, over head wires, (etc.), workers would have to shut down a few of these canals and water lines that feed water to the farms. Also, they would have to tear down a Very large rural area on the outskirts of Tulare, Ca. Amtrak California, (the current rail system) may also protest, because, well, they have been running for a while. But they may partnership with the California Goverment.
That's interesting, this hasn't yet been approved then? L
Yes, and No. Yes because people have already voted. No because they need to have something constructed (a piece of track etc.)by September this year to get approved. A rumor has it that the have already done that.
You'll be familiar with the word "railroad" (3a)? L

Obesity, dust bowls and Televangelism?Sorry, couldn't resist.
Racism, prejudice, and overall loss of any moral structure?
Is the KKK exclusively American? L
what is the kkk
It was a post-civil-war gang that went around attacking and intimidating blacks. They wore white sheets and pretended they were ghosts.
Not just blacks. It included Jews and other minorities as well.
I thought the anti-Jew group was the nazis. Oh well, I don't know a lot of history in the post-civil-war period to before WW2.
Well, obviously they took it to the terrible extreme. But anti-Semitism is definitely not an invention of the Nazis (who, it might be added, targeted other groups in addition to Jews) - it's been around a long time.
I am pretty sure that the 1400's is a long time, most likely started earlier.
"they took it to the terrible extreme"? I think both groups took it to a terrible extreme, just one on a slightly larger scale....
I mean the Nazis took anti-Semitism to the terrible extreme. I wasn't, of course, commenting on the Klan...they took hatred to a terrible extreme also, but they took racism against African-Americans to the extreme, not Jews. :)
If you have an interest in anti-Semitism, search for "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion", it's a "classic" L
They're taking over, they must be stopped!
I know, the bible references some anti-jew groups that were nowhere nearly as powerful.
No, the Nazis were definitely anti-Jew, we're just saying other groups operate according to a similar philosophy.

What episode and season is that?
I'm not sure, sorry. I think it's in season 1 or 2. Possibly 3.
Klu klux klan. Some people would be proud of the Klan as an American institution, most would not - I only mentioned it in response to Dr What. L
KKK are just pure sick. They still operate (illegally) in southern states. They do some grotesque things, ever seen Mississippi burning? Real eye opener.
I think I did once - Gene Hackman? I think Mel Brooks did a typically Mel Brooks gag in Blazing Saddles too? L
I can't remember to be honest.
The sickest organisation the world has seen. End of.
I'd tend to think so, it was a result of the South losing the Civil war..
Plus the post-war head-start the US had in washing-powder technologies...(How else do you keep those robes so white in the back of beyond?)
But how do you get crosses to burn effectively? L
Well, if I were KKK, not saying that I am, I would use a dense wood, one that burns a long time, and then tightly wrap it in a flame retardant (but not flame proof) material, and soak it in kerosene.
Whereas my idea would be to drill it full of lots of small holes, soak it in paraffin, and seal it off with wax.
Truly, all minds may have an evil bent once turned that way...
Only here could a thread start with references to bigotry and racism and end up as a technical exercise in problem-solving... Is there a negative corollary to Godwin's Law?
. Only in America. ;)
