  1. God save us....

    You know, Paul, Reagan proved that deficits don't matter. We won the mid-term elections, this is our due. --Dick Cheney, Jan 9, 2004

    4 other big stories (among many scores of others) you surely are interested in: The inauguration crowds were the biggest ever Obama wiretapped Trump Towers. NATO is obsolete because it doesnt fight terrorism. “Right now, we are the highest-taxed nation anywhere in the world. You can even say developed or undeveloped.”

    I think the alimony deduction was taken away (at least it was in the bill up to a day or two ago). This will make it far more likely that the alimony payer will try to renege and will result in lower payments even in those who do not.

    Trump admin openly bans the use of "science-based" and "evidence based" from CDC budget proposals. Can't have science or evidence--reality--intruding on epidemiology, microbiology, immunology, etc. now can we?! Also banned are the words “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” and “fetus". Orwell would be proud of his pupils. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/cdc-gets-list-of-forbidden-words-fetus-transgender-diversity/2017/12/15/f503837a-e1cf-11e7-89e8-edec16379010_story.html
  5. Net Neutrality

    Heard this tonight at the grocery...somehow it reminded me of the Internet to come! Anyway the idea is to fractionate things so that you have to pay to enter each fraction just like cable did. We already see it when no one streaming service covers the gamut of what anyone wants. And the popup says pay 4 dollars more for the next 5 chat minutes...

    Did WVU win anything that night? A smart lawyer might be able to use that if they did.

    No. I turned around the OP and the upvote. The statement was--incontrovertibly even--made and it is the statement to which I was replying. That I flipped the OP and the upvote does not change the statement. LOL all you want. Either you think being white is a "sin" these days or you don't. Which side are you on? Doesn't take hours. Only typing 2 or 3 letters. I say "no".

    To be specific, you upvoted dtf's statement: "It's basically a sin to be a white male these days. I stand by my comment." It is a distant inference, then, to think you say that as well, I guess. But yes, the OP was dtf, not you. My bad. The left stuff was brought in later in the thread. BTW, I'm still waiting for someone to point out any example of Duq ever posting a "self loathing" statement.

    I have and had no wish to say anything other than the two points I said all along about 99's original assertion: 1. It is no "sin" to be white in our culture. 2. There is no policy on "the left" to make it a "sin". The idea that either of these true is simply contrary to the facts. I'm totally disinterested in going farther afield on this particular subject.
  10. NYC Bombing

    So you now are saying you agree with Duq that it is not a sin to be white? This is the point of the whole "discussion". Nor is "the left" as any sort of bloc asserting that it is a sin which you also seem to say. That needs proof as well, yes.
  11. NYC Bombing

    No. I proceeded to argue for hours that being white is not a sin in our culture. It isn't.
  12. NYC Bombing

    According to you above, yup. If one reads your words, anyway.
  13. NYC Bombing

    Yeah. Reading actual words at their plain sense meaning is such a trap. You need to get to the "higher meaning".
  14. NYC Bombing

    If you never agreed with original point that being white is a sin these days , then we have no argument, I agree. I have only disagreed with that assertion. You will find it hard to say I've asserted anything else. That idea how whites suffer for being white is simply silly.
  15. NYC Bombing

    No problem.You're perfectly free to hold the opinion that "it's a sin to be white" in today's culture. What's harder is to provide real evidence unless you're just saying it's a joke. I'm fine with that.
