Re: Hate and Crazy

I never expected him to make it to the White alive on inauguration day. I breathed a huge sigh of relief when he got safely into that glass reviewing stand.

Meanwhile, tens of millions of people drove their cars to a call center to talk on the phone. Then they drove their cars to the gym to work out. They sat in the school pickup line for 20 minutes with the engine running, because they didn't realize it [more]

Re: The Nazis At It Again

This is a board where people get confused by the concept of past and present. Now you want them to differentiate between Democrat and Liberal. You're asking a lot.

Re: The Nazis At It Again

You are the one trying to equate a nobody with a Senator who served 48 years (EIGHT terms to be exact). The onus is on you to explain, or at least state, or at least hint at, whatever you're feebly trying to make.

Re: The Nazis At It Again

My point? Strom Thurmond was one of the most virulent racists of all time and a well-known twelve term Senator from a Southern state. I have no idea who the other man is, since you didn't take the time to mention it.

Re: The Nazis At It Again

You're right. For most of history, the Democratic Party was the party of backward Conservatives. It hosted the ignorant Southern racists that make up much of today's Republican Party and it opposed progressive reforms. Blacks fled the Republicans in [more]

Re: Three sentences and you're "out!"

Why does Yale need a chaplain? I thought it was a quality educational institution, not a bible school. For whatever reason, one less employed chaplain is a very good thing.

Re: Fast Food: Price of Laziness Rises

Those roast chickens don't even taste half as good as KFC. The grease and spices are what separate KFC from generic chicken. I would rather have one KFC drumstick for $5 than a whole roast chicken (healthier, too). That is a great example of making a [more]

R-Money hides out in France as a door-to-door annoyance and then makes a career out of enriching himself by firing people.

Re: Shoppers shunning Holier Than Thou business

I don't do business with anyone that uses religion in their advertising or name. When I had to wait at Discount Tire for the employees to come back from church on a Friday, I left and bought my tires from the Honda dealer, with no such peculiarities.
