#2889205 Shooting in Missouri sparks protests, looting

Posted by Delhommey on 13 August 2014 - 04:28 PM

 

By all accounts, Brown was One Of The Good Ones. But laying all this out, explaining all the ways in which he didn't deserve to die like a dog in the street, is in itself disgraceful. Arguing whether Brown was a good kid or not is functionally arguing over whether he specifically deserved to die, a way of acknowledging that some black men ought to be executed.

 

To even acknowledge this line of debate is to start a larger argument about the worth, the very personhood, of a black man in America. It's to engage in a cost-benefit analysis, weigh probabilities, and gauge the precise odds that Brown's life was worth nothing against the threat he posed to the life of the man who killed him. It's to deny that there are structural reasons why Brown was shot dead while James Eagan Holmes—who on July 20, 2012, walked into a movie theater and fired rounds into an audience, killing 12 and wounding 70 more—was taken alive.

 

To ascribe this entirely to contempt for black men is to miss an essential variable, though—a very real, American fear of them. They—we—are inexplicably seen as a millions-strong army of potential killers, capable and cold enough that any single one could be a threat to a trained police officer in a bulletproof vest. There are reasons why white gun's rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children's toys. Guns aren't for black people, either.

Great take.




#2886919 "Rape Culture"

Posted by Delhommey on 11 August 2014 - 07:58 PM

They don't need an excuse. He will rape you regardless of how much you've had to drink or what you are wearing.

So then it becomes a did you take the steps to not get raped.


If I leave my door wide open. I'm literally asking for my house to get robbed.

It's the same thing. There needs to be a certain amount of personal responsibility with this that people conveniently ignore.

So every time you get drunk you're saying you willing to take personal responsibility for some guy raping you up the butthole?

"Welp, guess I was asking for that one guys. Live and learn."

I like how everyone keeps saying "Africa" like this is happening from Cape Town to Cairo.

#2880942 Texas Republicans still amazingly ignorant, bigoted and stuck in the slow lane

Funny side note about Texas, when you apply for the official marriage license, you have to hold up you hand and swear you are not blood relation.

Many of you are missing the point that stirs is trying to make.

 

He is not saying that this law will entice or lead to people wanting to commit incest, polygamy, etc.  He is saying that a law written so vaguely (basically defining a marriage partner as anyone of your chosing) could provide a legal means and support for those who do want to participate in incest, polygamy, wedding underage kids, etc.  They could and will use this law as a means to legally do it....until the law is eventually rewritten.

 

What he's doing is playing the "We're not protecting slavery, we're protecting States Rights" type shell game.

Why is it Texas always seems to be somewhere toward the front of the pack when it comes to total fugging ignorance?

Can we just kick the whole state out of the country or let them secede?

It's a biiiiiiig state to generalize about.

Like California is a giant state that leans leftish, Texas is a giant state that leans right but who knows for how much longer. Most of the major cities went for Obama last two elections.

Here is the best short explanation of Texas you'll find

If you ever tell anyone that you did not get your dog or cat from a rescue in Austin, you might as well be proclaiming your love for Hitler and taste of the meat of newborn infants.

Ban all outgoing flights from Africa unless completely tested and run through decon.

Frankly, I'm surprised some environmentalists aren't scrambling to go catch it and return back to help purge a few millions/billions from the planet since we are a cancer.


Life must often surprise you.

#2873151 Man Fired for Posting about Homophones

Posted by Delhommey on 01 August 2014 - 02:31 PM

 

Self-described “social media specialist and content provider” Tim Torkildson recounted the firing in a personal blog post, which was subsequently picked up by The Salt Lake Tribune and other outlets. According to that account, Nomen Global owner Clarke Woodger was concerned that a post about homophones—words that sound the same but are defined differently—meant the school would be “associated with homosexuality.”

 

“He called me into the conference room, and he said, ‘We’re going to let you go,’” Torkildson told Newsweek. “[He said] this blog on homophones is the last straw. You can’t be trusted. I can’t trust you to write a regular blog.”

 

Torkildson denied that he was accused outright of promoting a “gay agenda.”

“No, that’s all been distorted,” he said. “His [Woodger’s] words to me were, ‘Some people might think that a blog on homophones has something to do with homosexuality.’ And that’s as far as he went on that. He said he hadn’t looked the word up, and then he realized what it was. His objection mainly was he thought the students at the school would not understand. And they would become offended or think the school would have some kind of gay agenda.”

#2869855 The downsides of being rich

Doubling your excess capital takes the same amount of effort rich or poor. It's what you start with that makes the biggest difference


Added an important clarification.


#2869840 House wants to send troops to Central America to secure border.

Posted by Delhommey on 29 July 2014 - 11:05 PM

Nope.

I asked a very simple question, you wanted to downplay the severity of the issue by using %'s rather than answering the question.

The answer, is no other country...that I can find has welcomed that many 3rd World "refugees" across their border.

I don't think that we can just send them back as many have claimed, I do however think that this is a bigger issue than many on the left are making it out to be.


Please tell me this is an act...

#2867402 First Take Discusses A Woman's Responsibility To Avoid Being Beaten

Posted by Delhommey on 28 July 2014 - 09:32 AM

I'm feeling feisty this morning and maybe a little out of my mind.  I didn't read their comments but I personally don't think hitting a women is any different than hitting a man and I'm anti-hitting anyone for the most part.

 

All that being sad, some people (men and women) get out of control and start acting a fool, saying things and doing things that purposely pushes peoples buttons, when acting that way they shouldn't be so naive to think their actions and words aren't going to bring about some consequences. Point is if you really don't want to get punched in the face there are some things you can do or avoid doing to help keep this from happening. 

 

Maaaaaybe can see this with a slap. However, I can see no circumstance where a person says something worthy of a full on Mike Tyson's Punch Out uppercut in the middle of public, especially when said person has no chance of fighting back.
