The G-D PC problem

I have a SIL that says G-D when she get ticked. I call her on this because saying G-D is the exact same thing as saying God Dammit except you get to feel superior to the people (me) that say God Dammit.
Well isn't saying "The N-word" [more]

Re: The arrogance of Political junkies.

If you think talking or arguing arguing about politics is pointless, then you're spending way too much time on this board.

I like to think of reading PA posts as my own version of watching reruns of old Three Stooges [more]

The arrogance of Political junkies.

This board, and all others like it, pretend that what we say matters. But it doesn't. PA junkies cannot make up more than 0.0001% of the American voters. And guess what. The American voter is out to lunch and will show up at the polls next year and [more]

Re: Good or bad?

Revelation, Revelation(s). You are one nitpicky little crapper aren't you?
Luckily I am more of an Old Testament sort of guy. There was a God that knew how to smite people that ticked Him off.

Good or bad?

I may have to revisit Revelations. It's been a very long time since I read it but didn't the Good Book predict wars (check), rumors of wars (check), fire from the sky (Iran is getting close enough so (check)), zombies (just seeing if you're paying [more]

My Bad.

I have to apologize to xlife and jerryab2 for leaving them off the "lack of critical thinking" list.

But if I ever make a "Bush did it too/first" list I will make sure they are there.

Re: Hillary! wiped the server clean

And we all know that server has suffered critical damage due to an act of God and has been discarded as unusable and untraceable trash.

I know we're stupid...

but, as voters, are we stupid enough to believe this?

Re: Wealth and Charity

Padre, is it true that Tim Cook is giving all his fortune (when he dies) to the Government to be used for good deeds? I guess he's not like those other rich guys like Buffet and Gates that think private organizations can do a better job with money [more]

Re: Roundup is perfectly safe to drink

widely used chemical "probably" causes cancer.,

"Probably" probably isn't a scientific term that is used very often. But don't even think I'm drinking that stuff.

Re: GOP collects ACA horror stories

Clever mis-use of tense to create validity where none exists. It doesn't do anything that you allege is still coming down the road.

Re: GOP collects ACA horror stories

Buffie, why should there be horror stories? The ACA does some very good things and these things are front loaded into the Act. It also does some very bad things and those things are still coming down the road.

The day the golf gods laughed in my face.

Short par 4 and I was lying just off the green in two. My chip lipped out and stopped about a foot from the cup. I promptly four putted.

To this day I cannot and will not take golf seriously.

Why am I posting this? Because Phil hit [more]

Re: Me: stupid; You: beware

I saw their ad today at the Valero TV coverage. If you're fast you can actually read in the small print what they are about to do to you.

Re: How Should Levi Pettit Atone For His Racism?

You cannot atone for your feelings, you can only atone for your actions. I think a simple apology and some visible good work in the minority community should suffice.

Of course, for some of you, anything short of a vow of poverty and a life [more]

Re: ironic

I was watching a news segment one day and they interviewed some White college kids about why Asians were getting all the math and science awards.
Their answer? "They cheat, they study."
