Re: Ladyfashun

And if we are talking about unacceptable things -- totally unacceptable is wearing your goddamn pajama pants out of the house. I don't care if it says anything on the ass or if you are in college, put on some damn real pants when you leave. Normally I'd agree with you. I can't stand people who wear...

I want to say I hate booty shorts and sleeper pants with words on them.

Re: Redskins lose their trademark?

I don't know what the numbers look like. That may be the case. It'd be a shame to cave to the grievance mongers but I get it if it happens.

Re: Redskins lose their trademark?

I still cannot believe people take this seriously. Also to be read as "I don't care about this, so it's stupid." Actually, no, it is objectively stupid.

They're not wrong. Look at the original history of the team name and that term.

It's basically the same as the Blackhawks, which is pretty uncontroversial.

I think that would depend. People were legtimately split about some of the post-Rodney King stuff RE police. I heard some interesting things from normals when Dorner was running around. People will surprise you.

Thinking that everyone other than you and yours are moronic sheep is ironically commonplace, pedestrian, and jejune. Yawn. It's not that they're sheep, an no one except you has said that, it's basically what dhex said. Do you think if the WTO protesters smashed the windows of police cars instead of...

Re: Skynet in the sky: The Flying Killer Robot thread

AR is right, look how how the general public has turned on no knock raids. Can't tell if you are snarking here. Opinion is shifting on no-knock, but I'd say most people are still OK with it. They're OK with it in poor, minority neighborhoods. It's when it happens in white areas and liberals get bus...

People need to find better things to complain about. Reservations are hives of substance abuse, unemployment, crime, rape, etc. I'd be outraged if I didn't suffer from ennui about grievance trolls.

For the amount of skill and qualifications, K12 teachers make fantastic pay. I dunno. Spending all day every day surrounded by snot nosed fucktards comes at a premium.
