@ponsoldt: If you ever need another meaningful entity to which you can offer your substantial donation, I know of just the guy - erm - place.

Fine to raise money by asking for donations. But stop asking them of your full-time employees that make less than a living wage.posted @ Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - 11:35
@Millionexus: I'm both a "gun-toter" and a "homophobe." But I have no record (formal or otherwise) of being a loose cannon.
But I never mentioned debating. Just beating the hell out of each other to get it out of the system. Half the posts on this thread seem to be text-based pissing contests about who is right, who makes more money, who is stronger, etc. etc. Just put them in the ring and let them tire themselves out!
Done!posted @ Friday, July 5, 2013 - 20:51
This thread is crazy.
We need a public event where posters can get together and beat the hell out of one another so we can move on.posted @ Saturday, June 29, 2013 - 23:16

@Millionexus: Fair enough. But that doesn't mean that all those who vehemently oppose gay-ness, etc. are pickling in it.posted @ Friday, June 28, 2013 - 12:13
[quote][b]Walter Becker[/b] -
Many "straight" people who spend a lot of time worrying about gay people are probably gay themselves. Self loathing must be terrible for them.
If I could see you I'd call you outside for an asinine comment like that. Why is it the gays always use that line? It makes absolutely no sense.posted @ Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 16:35

Levin said there has been a "pervasive influence of race in administration of the death penalty and the inadequacy of counsel — a longstanding issue here."
UM. Perhaps because there has been a pervasive influence of certain races in commission of violent crimes - a longstanding issue EVERYWHERE.
Cold blooded killer? Proven in court? Death penalty.posted @ Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 16:22
Hey "Reverend" Jackson, how about YOU being redeemed for the 1999 affair with Karin Standford that fathered a child?

@THX1138: Yes, you made it clear that you think whites throughout history are responsible for egregious human rights offenses against minority races. Yes, some were, most weren't. Just like every race in every country ALL around the world and in ALL times.
Try living in Mexico where I worked for a few years. You'll see amongst them "racism" there that more than doubles ours here, past or present. And I suspect that's the case around the world - that's people for you. And knowledge of that fact is available to anyone that will just open a history book and their mind.posted @ Friday, June 21, 2013 - 17:36
[quote][b]snarkydude[/b] - ...and yes, I am very prejudiced against that culture.
I understand. I'm mostly with you as well. Prejudice is in the category of wisdom.
As I was taught when I was a child, you only have to pet a mean pit bull or two a few times before you steer clear of all pit bulls. Does that mean all pit bulls are going to bite? No, it just means that you'd be safest to just leave them alone all together.posted @ Friday, June 21, 2013 - 17:31
[quote][b]THX1138[/b] - @snarkydude: I see that you are lumping all Blacks into your little rant which is biased to say the least.
Weren't you lumping all whites together when you told me that "our" "white" race has committed evils against all others?posted @ Friday, June 21, 2013 - 17:17
@THX1138: Seriously? How long ago was that?
I grew up in a poor as dirt farming family that never took a slave nor cent in all its history. I, for one, am tired of lazy, money-grubbing people of ALL races.posted @ Friday, June 21, 2013 - 16:38

Just tell me what other race besides the so-called "white" race cares so much about spending time, money, effort, lives on helping other races? None. None at all.
Blacks don't help Hispanics, Hispanics don't help Asians, Asians don't help "Native Americans", and none of them - not one - dip into their pockets or gather votes to help "whites."
Folks can call Paula Dean a racist all they want. All they really want is to pull down a majority to put themselves "on top." Let me tell you "from the top", other races, it's no fun having to pay everybody else's way and then get demonized for doing it. I'd be happy to trade places. Just tell me when.posted @ Friday, June 21, 2013 - 15:43
@Arnold Friend: Not sure what you're talking about. I'm talking about whiny adults who get offended by "raaaaaaacist words."posted @ Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 22:18
Whiners. Everywhere I look these days are whiners. Since when do words, and not actions, hurt?
Some days I just wish I could call a whole bunch of those whiners outside to settle it once and for all. It's ridiculous and has to stop.posted @ Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 11:15

Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
