A liberal is a person who rampages through the streets smashing window, throwing rocks at police, and beating on innocent people in order to protest hatred.
I agree with all of that; it would be nice to hear some liberals speak out against the violence though.
Okay. It pisses me off when liberals prevent someone from speaking to a crowd. Those people either don't understand are don't agree with (at least) that part of the Constitution. Moreover, it's incredibly stupid. Don't they realize turnabout is fair play?
If Democrats don't like how McConnell used the "nuclear option" to get Gorsuch into the Supreme Court, they only need to look at themselves in the mirror.
Despite the panic from the LOSERS, Donald Trump sure is taking his good ol' time destroying America, the environment, and womanhood. Bill Clinton would have had at least three bimbos bagged by now. What's taking misogynist Trump so long?
It's hard to accomplish all you set out to do when you're working on your golf game.

Wonderful video. Thanks for posting.
What is your most comfortable reading position?
I am glad the people that think I am so smart...never see me try to get out of the car with my seat belt still on or push the door clearly marked pull
the seatbelt I have done before
Please post a sentence containing the word "arms" however replace the word "arms" with the word underpants. Thanks.
Some underpants conditions can cause pain, swelling, spasms, and prohibit movement.
This might be my all-time favorite post. Thanks Vic.
As Hemingway wrote, perhaps its time to say:
A Farewell to Underpants
So I got home, barely watched the news.. and my head exploded. Apparrently the UN is attempting to get involved in the Obamacare repeal debate. No.. Seriously. How dare these Globalization Gangsters dare tell The United States Of America how we should conduct our health care system?! How about the other 193 Member Nations? Has the line truly become that thin when it comes to American Soverignty? Get the UN out of the US and the US out of the UN!!! They should have Absolutely No Say!
Who cares what the UN says about Obamacare? I agree with Vic - the UN has no say in it - but for the sake of argument, let's suppose they do. What is the UN going to do to the US? What could they do? Penalize us (when we contribute over 20% of their budget)? Send peacekeepers? It's almost laughable to think about.
The U.S. took unilateral actions in Iraq against another sovereign nation. We'd certainly take such measures in our own country.
When a giant falls it dies and returns its essence, which serves to nourish the next generation, completing the cycle.
Agreed, whether your talking about nations, cultures, trees, or actual giants. That's what keeps this whole comedy perpetuating itself (apologies to the Coen brothers).
**Cops.** They have a lot of responsibility...but they don't get enough support. //What more support could they use?//
Why would you think my question rhetorical? I am seriously curious.
No, it was not rhetorical, it was/is quite literal. I live just outside of, and used to live downtown in, a city that has in recent years been named, on multiple occasions, as either the "Murder Capital" or the "Most Dangerous City". It is no longer considered for such, due to a decline in population...yet per capita, it has outdone the "winner" of the title. I have no problem navigating my city...late at night...by myself. So my question is serious, Phil. If one is afraid, don't go into bad areas late at night...oh, wait, that shit happens everywhere...so be afraid, be very, very afraid...right? How about just being cognizant at all times, regardless of where you are...and not overstating the danger? Makes more sense to me.
I found this definition for rhetorical question:
A question asked solely to produce an effect or to make an assertion and not to elicit a reply.
The question "are we really that pussified?" certainly makes an assertion, and a negative one at that (people are pussified), making it a difficult question to answer, especially if one does not agree with the assertion.
Suppose you say, "we need to simplify the tax code. Many people have difficulty file their taxes", and the other person responds, "are people really that retarded".
Regarding the issue at hand, cops are not pussified, at least not the few that I have known. I would also suggest that there is a big difference between walking through a bad neighborhood and having to gain control of confrontational situations in those neighborhoods.
Police need more training and more involvement in the communities they work in.
My mother worked for a police dept for about 15 years, retired from there.
She hated the way the officers behaved when they thought no one way paying attention. Full of themselves and quick to anger. And openly racist. This was in a community of 90 percent white population.
So, yes, there are good cops. But there are many bad ones. It is a magnet for people who need to feel that they have power over others. And there are a whole bunch of people who do.
I believe the job of police officer attracts certain personality types, so I agree that many cops love to feel the they have power over others.
My brother-in-law is an officer in Fort Myers, Fl - a notoriously **** place to be a cop. He says he pulls out his gun on almost every shift. One story he told me: going to a domestic disturbance and rolling up to see a half-dressed man holding a gun to his infant's head and threatening to pull the trigger.
I don't know about how others would do, but I would have trouble dealing with that shit day after day.
Of course I don't condone bad behavior, especially from people in positions of trust and authority. At the same time though.. I have a general understanding of why it happens.
Wow...are people really that pussified? Smh
I don't understand your perhaps rhetorical question.
How are you? are you good? are you happy? i wish you are! do you ever feel that sometimes how amazingly people think you are so cool/ no problems in life/ all fun loving kind of person you are. whats new in that i am sure most of you have heard all this and might have felt so. the point is is it all true? its funny how you sometimes constantly feel nothing is right in your life and yet nobody gets to know that. maybe you dont let anybody know.most of you who are reading this is because either you can relate or you are thinking some stupid 13-15 year old wrote it. well you are wrong if you go for the second option. sometimes its just hard to figure out who you are..what do you want? sometimes its just hard to understand your own self. its funny how everything gets distorted and falls back into place just to get distorted again! so do you find your own self when introspection doesnt help? would luv to know!
I'm okay. Thanks.
Is it all true?
As I think you suspect/know, our perceptions are not reality. We get stimuli through our eyes, ears, etc.., unknowingly filter that stimuli based on our personal biases, we then make generalizations and assumptions in an attempt to remove ambiguity, and give the experience meaning. In addition, our perceptions can be distorted by our emotional state.
If something is really bothering me, I try to identify exactly what it is and why. Keeping the aforementioned process in mind helps me think about ways in which I might be getting things wrong. Also I'll often go to a trusted person and ask for his/her opinion. Testing your views against others can be very eye-opening.
Post a song with the word nickel in the title
Brother, can you spare half a dime?
Freedom Day in Portugal - 25th April. //Do you know about it?//
No, but enjoy!!
Fixing things.What was the last thing you fixed?
My hair, does that count?
LOL! But no.
Recent bathroom remodel opened a Pandora's Box of things to fix. Replaced faulty electric switches, replaced exhaust fan, added roof vent, replaced old supply line valves, repacked valve stem cap on main that began to leak when turned off for bathroom plumbing work.
Now, I can finally get on with repairing, maintaining lawn equipment!
That's impressive Bud.
Police officers don't get enough credit. How many of us worry about making it home alive each and every workday? I'm not surprised they rough people up when they don't follow orders.
I don't entirely blame cops. Some are jerks, for sure, but there are a lot of good ones out there as well. I blame the system they've gotten caught up in.
They've gone from To Protect and Serve to being a cog in the wheel of our for-profit privatized prison system. I think that's the root of the problem.
The private prison industry makes huge contributors to elected officials, which are the people who make our laws and tell the cops what to do. In fact, they won't even build new prisons unless they get a guarantee from the politician in their pocket that the prison will stay at or near capacity at all times. How law enforcement acts is a reflection of this -- they're literally looking for a reason to arrest people, even if it means taking advantage of people not knowing their constitutional rights. And that's why people don't trust them, especially minorities.
The return on investment for lobbying for stricter laws must be incredible. Private prisons are a bad idea.
"We cannot advance without new experiments in living, but no wise man tries every day what he has proved wrong the day before."
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Really? That's what insanity is?!?
I've always despised that statement.
What is the most cost-effective way to bribe someone?
I SO want to be bad here Phil.... ;)
I'm not going to stop you.
What has been your worst romantic "fail" ?
So many to pick from. How about the time I had a mad crush on a girl I worked with at an Arby's. She once walked up to me and said, "you have something on your face". She didn't realize it was a zit until she tried to brush it off. She just pivoted and walked away stiffly. I stood there crushed.
Have to be the end of my second marriage after 30 plus years. So many good years till she decided she loved the bottle more than me. I really loved her too but had to divorce her and I consider that my biggest failure. Just couldn't put up with that mean booze attitude.
I'm sorry to hear that. My dad would use the most twisted and mean logic when drinking.
What is a song that brings out the most intense emotions in you? Be it good or bad.
And these streets
Quiet as a sleeping army
Send their battered dreams to heaven, to heaven
For the mother's restless son
Who is a witness to, who is a warrior
Who denies his urge to break and run
Who says: Hard times?
I'm used to them
The speeding planet burns
I'm used to that
My life's so common it disappears
And sometimes even music
Cannot substitute for tears
