Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

"a) that Berkeley would be able to fire a tenured black faculty member without a much better excuse than this letter," i doubt that.. Berkeley is the home of free speech... this would be a firing offense i am sure.. you could likely get canned for much less.. like mis-gendering someone.. i suspect i...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

One other thought on who gets to define what symbols mean. People (particularly NFL players, it seems) who refuse to stand for the national anthem say that it's about police brutality, not about the flag or the anthem. And it seems that media which write about it swallow that entirely. Somebody poi...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

thanks mountaineer here is a quote that seems like it is up your alley Edmund Burke “Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites… in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in p...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

i don't think doodle is arguing in bad faith or trolling. he is arguing from emotions and feeling, he has said several time that he often agrees regarding Trumps actual policy's, the thing is "You cannot reason someone out of something he or she was not reasoned into" and our ugly history feels bad ...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

I don't think you seem to be able to understand that it's all just a distraction from the real issue. Those statues of old generals aren't hurting anybody. What is hurting black people today for the most part is just other black people. and liberal democratic government policy's, especially in big ...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

I think at the root of all of this is that many people don't want to live in a truly 'diverse' society.. I understand that. I know that a great deal of cultural diversity can create tension. But let's be scientific about this and discuss our honest beliefs about the functionality of the American me...

Re: Privatizing the legal system

i was blown away on a road trip across Texas from the western border to Dallas by the absolute saturation of dairy-queen franchises, there is one at every crossroads big enough to have a town name, and two in every town that was longer than a 1/4 mile...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Also, do you disagree that he displays fascist tendencies? L82, How do you marry what you just wrote to the fact that Trump lies more than any other politician? Unless of course you believe there is no objective truth anymore... ...propaganda.. trump exaggerates, and shoots his mouth off, and overs...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I'm curious where the fundamental difference in perspective lies when two people evaluate Trump. How can two supposedly rational human beings with similar cultural backgrounds have such a amazing wide difference of opinion regarding the presidency of Trump? That to me is so strange. Im not comparin...
