Right. He's supposed to be just some random dude with an assault weapon.

I dont care who says it, its offensive. It is offensive to blame this on church state separation

...Knee jerk, Reflexively, with zero evidence to back it up. It smacks of crass opportunism, opportunism to push a wholly unrelated agenda using the murder of 20 little kids.

Someone wants to make an asinine assertion like that to me, they need to show me some fucking evidence that "prayer in school" had diddly shit to do with any of this.

It didnt.

Yes, 'cuz when a mentally disturbed kid takes the easily accessed assault weapons from his

"gun enthusiast", survivalist mom and shoots up an elementary school, obviously Atheism is somehow culpable.

I think I have a new Christmas song

I banned Ken Ham for Christmas
I sent him his MIRT PPR
I banned Ken Ham for Christmas
I banned him, he wont get too far

Our Christmas feast was lacking
Our Pizza was looking quite bare
It needed some old time troll whacking
Some christmas Ham for MIRT to share

He wanted to give us the good news
How dinos and man got along
But I banned Ken Ham for Christmas
I called his shit silly and wrong.

Come on. Rice was clearly the Administration's first choice.

I like John Kerry- who, by the way, ALSO voted for the IWR- but I hate to see us lose a Senate seat.

And i don't buy for a Minute that this has been some 15 Dimensional GOP chess. They want Rice to go down so they can prove that they "took her out" because of the Bhengazi "scandal"....

There's no scandal, of course, but they've spent the past 2 months flogging it on FOX and they don't want to look stupid, sitting here with a case of scandalus interruptus and nothing to show for it. If they can remove Rice from SOS consideration, they can point to the "victory" and say "seee? There must have been something there, after all!!"

Ive seen what it looks like when a computer posts- so I'm sure theres a person behind the


The question, though, is whether the person is also behind other accounts... or has been.

I dont understand the sock thing, either- but its an astoundingly common game.

There is another game where several people share the password to an account, which can lead to inconsistencies in the "person's" posting pattern or story. Dont really understand that game, either.

Likewise, I don't understand what would motivate someone to sit in a Library and troll DU for years and years under an endless series of names.. But, as MIRT and the old Mods know, somone does.

I'll also say that Ive been paying attention to certain phenomena for a while.... Way back into DU2. I generally don't make statements without a real good reason for making them.

Lets put it this way: I have a very good memory.

I hear tell that carrying pictures of Chairman Mao can have a deleterious effect on one's sex life.

Yeah. Exactly. Speaking of what chaps some peoples' behinds.

Yes, yes, tsk tsk. There is still one entire irritatingly unlocked thread left on DU in which people refer to attractive members of the opposite, or same, sex as "hot"

I do find it fascinating that now that the top marginal rate is likely to go back to 39%

all sorts of people are desperately pulling all sorts of creative "alternatives" out of their rears.

Robert Samuelson's idea of a "good deal" on taxes sounds oddly like something coming from someone who thinks Romney won the race:


Republicans accept immediate higher taxes on the “wealthy” — couples with more than $250,000 of income and singles with more than $200,000. Obama won the election, and that’s his minimum demand. However, it doesn’t require permanently increasing today’s top 35 percent tax rate to 39.6 percent. Instead, Obama accepts a one-year surtax or limit on deductions. During that time, Congress and the administration pledge to pursue a tax overhaul that would cut the top individual and corporate income tax rates to 30 percent.

Yes, how reasonable, Bob- let the top rate go back to pre-Bush levels for one whole year (!!!) after which, of course, we HAVE to find a way to get the rates for the poor oppressed top bracket (the so-called "wealthy" harumph harumph because no one can afford that 2nd house in the Hamptons on a measly impoverished 250K a yr harumph harumph) back down lower than they already are- say, 30%, slobber slobber drool drool.

How about this: We have an income tax in place. Large transfers of money (as opposed to assets) are ALREADY reported to the IRS. Raising the top marginal rate is a fairly simple matter, and wouldn't require any fancy new reporting or ideas.

I did a Mea culpa? Where? No I didn't.

I said I agreed with yardwork that in this context "p*ssy" is offensive and a broad slur. I also explained my reasoning. That's not a "mea culpa", in fact, I've never expressed a different opinion about "p*ssy" in this context NOR did I weigh in on the original thread.

But, see, that's because I'm interested in the actual underlying meanings of the words and engaging in a rational discussion of them, not focusing endlessly on whether something constitutes a "win" or a"point" or "my team".

Also, it's meta. There is a well established tradition of using the popcorn smiley in reaction to an expected flame fest. that you immediately decided to get outraged about THAT, I think, says an awful lot about ... shit, something.

Let me break it down for you: "p*ssy"? In the context of the linked OP? Offensive. Popcorn in the context of the post YOU are now fulminating bout? Not so much.
