So did I, until this week.I think global warming is a big lie.
The welfare and china situations are a little more complicated than described. We apologized for their pilot dying and for landing without permission, not for hitting their plane or being there.
And what, we were supposed to let china keep our people? Politics is the art of the possible.
Turning off victim's TV's wouldn't have saved the kids at Columbine; the problem was the other kids and their home life. Of course.
Hiroshima was a civilian target preserved from prior bombing so we could test our weapon and scare the USSR. The whole area is poisoned and many many have died after the initial firestorm from radiation effects.
The destruction of whole cities from europe to japan has been demonstrated NOT to end wars.
They were used to that. What may have been more significant is the russians poised to invade resulting in destruction of the japanese culture, coupled with the futility of their fight.
See articles in New Yorker and Civilization and few years back.
Did anyone know we were planning to put a siren on the bomb so people would look up and we'd see how easy they were to blind?
What if it was YOUR suburb, your family member irradiated burned and dead?
Being a minority doesn't make you victimized, but let's not pretend racism is dead or that minorities don't face disproportionate poverty.
The english system of measurement is profoundly stupid (how many square feet in an acre or hectare?)
and we're one of the very last nations i the universe to embarrass ourselves by using it.
Our country doesn't have a national language. It was, however, built by immigrants.
If you don't want a big mac served in spanish in CA, for example, don't go to largely spanish areas and expect to pay a heck of a lot more for your lawn care and catering because immigrants prop up a large part of that economy working substandard wages.
Hmmm. My "pansy @$$" is glad I went to college. The antieducation rant almost sounds like the problem some minorities have in the inner city--mocking those who do well in school. But mocking that would have made a nice addition to this list. Ironic.
Don't want to eat healthy? Die then. But don't complain about medical costs since you basically asked for it.
You have molars too, and your canine's are tiny, nothing like a carnivore's. Fact is your dentition is about as unspecialized as they come. Teeth don't define instincts and instincts don't define right, anyway.
Penis envy is a pretty well discarded freudian concept that assumes women are basically defective.
Global warming is real, according to the bulk of climatologists. They were out looking at the end of permafrost in some areas, and the decreasing arctic habitat for many animals, and they were remembering global warming is about the rise of a mean, and substantial deviation occurs from that all the time in both directions; one cold spell is nothing.
Most people aren't willing to discount the deaths and assaults on minority suspects from police with humor. Diallo was shot at 41 times; he was unarmed.
Another black male was killed by undercover cops who attempted to sell him drugs which he refused, thinking they were thugs. Another black male with a milky way walked thru a stakeout unknowingly and was shot on sight. The officer didn't apologize. At some point it sounds like a trend and we all know not to second guess the actions of a terrified person not knowing what is happening, by blaming them for .2 second decisions after 6 months of investigation.
Ballot humor... if disenfranchisement is funny, at least, next time let's make sure the ballot errors benefit each candidate equally.
Damage from high speed pursuits often involves innocent bystanders hurt or killed. I'm not laughing.
What are you going to do with a car accident victim, unbelted, that now needs medical care for life that may have avoided it if the law said to wear the belt?
Feed him/her to dogs?
Belt laws, helmet laws save lives and families and public $, just like safety standards and road railing.
Thoughtless anti-PC is no better than thoughtless PC, IMNSHO. ON THE OTHER HAND, thoughtful anything, including anti-PC is just great.
