A snowflake would cry to their parents... a freethinker wouldn't allow themselves to be abused in the first place and defend themselves with force if necessary... a thug would abuse another human being while judging those who object as snowflakes.

At least that's one way to look at it...


You would have made a good Vietnam war protester. We could have sat in the cell together while they passed around the great big joint that I have no idea how they got into jail. May, 1970 - O.S.U. campus the same time as the Kent State shootings were taking place. Just home from Vietnam after delivering cargo for the invasion up on the Cambodian border on the Mekong river.

Joined the Navy to avoid going to Vietnam which just goes to show you a moral lesson. I was against the war but I had no idea I was even going to Vietnam until they put me on the plane. Total Mindfuck, to say the least.

Lol, the real Mark Leavy is peacefully cooking a pig in a hot tub somewhere, completely unaware that someone else has taken over for the past few posts. I'm sure of it! O0

When the next financial meltdown happens -- and it will -- there will be a fresh new influx of people to this forum who are ready to question everything. And some of them will be so exceptionally smart, well-spoken, and confident, that they will attract a following of sorts.

I think some of the most intelligent and charismatic people shine the brightest in the midst of crisis.

A pig cooked in a hot tub doesn't sound too appetizing to me, whether peacefully or not. You'd have to cook it for a long time and it would be way too salty when it was done, not to mention all of the other stuff that would seep into it.

Now, if I'm being ignorant and "pig in a hot tub" is some kind of alcoholic drink I'm not aware of, by all means let me know the ingredients.

No, I meant it literally. It is not a drink. O0

If being against the idea that some stranger has the right to physically assault my 7-year-old daughter with a weapon makes me a snowflake, then, yeah, I'm a snowflake. A proud one.

This thread has me thinking about Charlottesville. I actually felt kind of sorry for...the "nazis." There's something I never thought I'd say.

Edit: sorry, still waking up on a Sunday morning, and I did not realize there was a dedicated thread on this.
