Let me know when you guys get to grammar.
Abortions are mandated for those who use text speak and optional for those who confuse who/whom. Retroactive abortions are encouraged for those who use corporate speak or engage in SJW-style abuse of clear language.

I'm amused at the notion that there are anti-abortion laws so horrific that Justice Fratdouche won't support them.

Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

Joe Rogan's a comic, albeit one who found (not unlike Bill Maher and Dennis Miller before him) that the continuum from stand-up comic to talk show host to political commentator can be pretty seamless. I think even he would be hard pressed to consider himself a public intellectual. I know Rogan as a...

Yes. Which words are weapons is sports bar. Outside of a few weirdos, neither side disagrees with the statement. Despite being weirdos, the IDW peeps are not those weirdos or if they are, they get laryngitis when a lefty gets dinged. Ahh - so, yeah - I'd put it at like 80/20 in practice. Not 100/0,...

Re: The Abortion Thread

Here's a good way to get Republicans to back off these bills. Argue that personhood at conception means that a baby conceived in the US is a citizen and you can't deport a pregnant illegal alien because you're deporting a US citizen. Bill will be vetoed immediately. There are levels of person, Mo.

Re: The Well-Dressed Man

Levi's now makes an athletic cut pair of jeans (the 541). I recommend checking them out if you fall into the big thighs/big ass/small waist demographic. Because they're new and can't be found at outlets, they're outrageously overpriced for a pair of Levi's, but still way cheaper than fancy brands. ...

I'm not saying I don't know this. But I seem to be incapable of believing it. You'll notice I'm not trying to convince anyone this is true. That's because it isn't.

I find casinos pretty depressing. As depressing as strip clubs for similar reasons. The best versions are kinda fun with people having fun, but the median is dark and desperate. Casinos are worse.
