just looking for clarification or consistency (humor me with the idea that you could ever be consistent)

name calling is only ok if you do it to a woman, correct? or do you plan to warn noted dumbass mr scot as well?

e: btw why the "no calling old white guys names" policy anyway? is it just not PC enough for you?

Nah, whatever I say you will deny/disagree with.

You are like a small child," why why why" then throwing tantrums when you don't hear what you want.

you just characterized an entire generation of people as "generally shitty"

I point out how rediculous that is and I'm "white knighting" them?

sounds like a cop out to me

hey i wouldn't want to have to explain why degrading a woman is ok but calling a poster a moron for doing it isn't ok either, but i'm not the one that's in the position to have to justify it

the same people who directly benefited from the post war economy and a strengthened social safety net are the same people who today reliably vote for the politicians who openly campaign on cutting and privatizing "entitlements"

there's never been a more selfish, entitled, completely oblivious generation. successful by circumstance, they repeat a "bootstraps" mantra that they never actually applied to themselves. the boomers are poo.
