Seems like a good place to start a budding investigative journalism career

Does it seem like things work smoothly and professionally? Actually, everything is a gigantic mess behind the scenes, barely held together with chewing gum and bits of string.

Oh wait, that's every profession.

I’m continuing my annual tradition of posting quotes from other people and tagging them #MLKDay. Today’s guest of honor: Stokely Carmichael.

I really want to do the one about MLK but that might be too obvious.

I finally decided to give this Twitter thing a try.

Within ten minutes I got "Your account has been locked. What happened?
Your account appears to have exhibited unusual behavior that violates the Twitter Rules."
All I did was follow a few accounts and click around a bit.

To be fair, if you never went on Twitter before and then suddenly you did, that DOES count as "unusual behavior" for you.

Anti-prostitution dipshit says any job you do only for the money (rather than the love of the job) is basically rape:



"If you tell a prostituted woman: “You have two choices: you can either take the money & leave or you can take the money & stay for the sex." How many are going to stay for the sex? 0. They don’t want the sex, they want the money. Unwanted sex is rape. Prostitution is paid rape."

When I used to bother arguing with leftists, conversations often went like this:

Leftist: "Companies exploit workers."

Me: "Would you prefer to be unexploited?"

Leftist: "Unemployment is a form of exploitation!"

Me: *sigh*

She doesn't get it at all. We members of the patriarchy teach all younger men to not worry about the DNA--the bros at the crime lab will destroy the evidence!

Does she not even get how patriarchy works?
