why can i hit a child up to a certain point and it's ok but i can hit an adult in the exact same way and face charges? adults are more physically and emotionally capable of dealing with violence. children are generally helpless.
i'll go ahead and answer this for you since you appear to be getting at it anyway: there's this weird concept of ownership over children that bad parents use to justify their own lazy, abusive behavior
i think the government should respect the league's private matters by revoking the nfl's 501c6 status and repealing all league-specific antitrust exemptions so that those washington liberal bureaucrats have no excuse to stick their noses where it doesn't belong
Improve the product on the court/field, then everything else will follow. That's why I disagree with the bobcats name change.
i've noticed a lot of interest and excitement re: the name change from people who poo on the bobcats even during their p awesome 2nd half last season so if appealing to their delicate sensibilities by changing the name allows them to objectively analyze and appreciate the team then w/e
i basically ignored the people who were really weird about the name change before it ever happened so i have no idea what their motivations were. on the upside idk if we actually sign lance if we weren't trying to hype up the rebrand, even if the rebrand almost caused us to max out gordon hayward lol
yes, the internet, message board, name calling guys, call others coward
you guys are the kings of enlightenment.
sz called you a coward so idk if this was directed at me but uh you compared being a white guy who sets his homepage to drudge report today to being black in the 50s after posting one of your patented "feral black animals brutally attack a white person" videos in a thread about how apparently "southern whites are made uncomfortable by blacks." im not going to call you a coward, im just going to suggest that maybe you should just shut the fug up if you care at all that your presence on this forum strongly supports kt's claim that this place is stormfront for ppl who also occasionally want to talk about football or ogle women that are at most half their age whom they wouldn't even be able to make eye contact with in public
goddamn is kt still banned here? i mean i get it, if you ignore the actual racism around here then kt is a crazy person just trying to fug up zod's forum so again if you're willing to ignore it then kt should definitely be banned
The minimum wage machine allows anybody to work for minimum wage. Turning the crank will yield one penny every 4.97 seconds, for $7.25 an hour, or NY state minimum wage. If the participant stops turning the crank, they stop receiving money. The machine's mechanism and electronics are powered by the hand crank, and pennies are stored in a plexiglas box. The MWM can be reprogrammed for different minimum wage's in different locations
minimum wage jobs are super fuging shitty as is and if the response is to automate them then fuging do it already. as has been posted itt, the government is already subsidizing the existence of millions of poor working people because, in a shocking twist, capitalism has failed them. automate your poo, guarantee a universal minimum income, let robots do the shitty jobs that most of you itt wouldn't work now for your current salaries, much less minimum wage, and allow people to find some sort of rewarding work and idk meaning in life beyond "expendable, exploitable, faceless peasant" somewhere else
isn't it weird how wages have remained relatively stagnant for decades while productivity and profit have increased but setting the minimum wage to match rises in productivity and profit would somehow destroy capitalism as we know it? i mean really if your dumb economic system can be upended by paying the people who actually produce your product a living wage then you should at least consider the possibility that it sucks and is dumb as heck
imo the real problem is that the liberal media runs with headlines like "man's death after chokehold raises old issue for the police" instead of the obvious "piggyback ride goes horribly wrong; hero cop survives, goes home to his loving family"
Because arresting people who beat up and stab other people and drive around drunk is solely for the purpose of protecting capital interest?
And helping people with suicidal thoughts to get the help they need is solely protecting capital interests?
And because solving problems FOR people that are low-income is 50% if not more of calls is solely protecting capital interests?
And because searching for murderers or kidnappers is just because of capital interests...
People know a lot less about what goes on in the day of a police officer than what they think.
indisputable evidence of widespread profiling of racial minorities
countless examples of "improper use of deadly force" aka poo that will get you arrested, charged and convicted of murder if you were to reverse the roles. for example, shooting a black man in the back as he laid face down in front of several cops, in front of dozens of witness (several of which recorded the execution) only to be convicted of "involuntary manslaughter" and be granted double credit for time served
responding to protests in wildly different ways. the response seems to be mostly dependent upon the demographic that makes up the bulk of protestors. for example here recently taking property damage more seriously than the life of a black teenager, all because a pig happened to pulled the trigger
existing in a country that demonizes union membership while often enjoying the strongest union in their respective communities, which is p funny when you consider the history of police involvement in union busting
it's great that police direct traffic and talk down jumpers but if you and/or the people you've decided to defend would do more of that while doing less of the whole oppressing minorities and working to permanently secure a desperate underclass, that would be fantastic
y'all centrists like to claim they're "just the wingnut fringe and shouldn't be considered as wielding representative force" and yet these are the people who give the tea party its clout
centrist is a meaningless term here on the carolinahuddledotcom. ppl try to present themselves as "moderates" or "independents" so that they can pretend that they just happened to reach the exact same goddamn conclusion as their party of choice because it's just objectively correct (party of choice is almost always democratic or republican because as we all know policy is binary). the ppl unwilling to acknowledge that the inmates are running the asylum in the republican party are straight ticket republicans, whether they label themselves as "centrists" or not.
the best explanation i've seen for the civil war going on in the GOP is that decades ago republicans never anticipated (or cared?) that the true believers (the poor gullible racists who fell for the southern strategy) would:
1) discover they had been tricked by establishment republicans
and 2) declare the establishment "RINOs" and continue red-baiting and race-baiting in a way vaguely similar to that of establishment republicans but much more crudely because they actually believe this poo but lack the ivy league education to dress it up appropriately
these people were genuinely pissed that obummer's a black communist muslim but simply voting for another "RINO" would never again be enough for them because those establishment fugers were never actually going to rightfully impeach him for being a kenyan
