Re: Question Regarding American Income Tax & Healthcare

thing is, i don't agree with a totally free market, so....a lot of the objection up there doesn't make any sense to me. unchecked capitalism is a disaster, but we sort of have a part socialist/part capitalist way of life in the US. people really don't usually understand just how very socialist we ar...

Re: Question Regarding American Income Tax

Thanks for clarifying that. But when you said they charge females more than males... Well, that just brings up a whole nother question entirely. In regards to your driving analogy, here in Canada driving is considered a privilege - not a right - so they can (and do) force us to get insurance to be ...

Re: Political Correctness

also, Jordan Peterson is far from an objective perspective, no matter what or how many degrees he might hold. there's a reason why the far-right/alt-right (though i gag on that term) loves him... THAT SAID, i did agree with this article: I’m a left-winger and I support Jordan Peterson (note to the r...

Re: Political Correctness

i know you want to minimize the role that fundamentalists on the Right are playing / want to play in shaping the nation. as they say, "that's cool, bro"... just, you know...they're only the ones mostly in power right now in every state. but whatevs...it's pretty useless to go back and fort...

Re: Political Correctness

Comparing the insanity that the Postmodern Left is demonstrating right now with ANYTHING negative the Right is doing is not even a comparison that can be made... again, you believe this because of political alignment and opposition of the beliefs that the other side is promoting. but i'm not aligne...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

i agree with you on leaks & spoilers, Brew! but now (supposedly) someone in marketing for TLJ got fired, then went and leaked the entire script on 4chan. i refuse to read it, but my husband did and says if it's legit, unfortunately the movie sounds like it might be pretty dumb. /62 i really hope...

Political Correctness

A bit of a side-debate in regards to the value of Political Correctness sprung out of the thread, Bill Maher referenced himself as a "house nigga" on his show In essence, is the PC movement a valuable one, or a dangerous one? What are the different forms it takes? How has it affected our s...

Re: Bill Maher referenced himself as a "house nigga" on his show

So, I thought I'd chime in here - you know, just so it isn't only the two of you! =P I've personally seen Bill Maher defend the perspective of black people in America... can't really remember when or what was said but I remember that I've seen it before. In my eyes, I don't think Bill is a racist; ...

perhaps 'political correctness' needs to be it's own topic at this point, so we don't go any more off the rails in this one...

No, I don't really think it's OK for anyone to use, but at the end of the day I support everyone's First Amendment right to use it. I wouldn't call for anyone being fired over shit like that, including what Kathy Griffin did. I think Ink pretty much nailed it with his summary of say what you want, ...

racism is evolving, its why it is difficult to see from the outside. ^ THIS ^ it evolves and gets trickier. instead of being "in your face" it's more elusive and deceptive now. it gets hidden deeper into the system itself, through the slippery use of language. in codes..."dog whistle...

Re: The last movie I watched was ......

Kill Switch Found it OnDemand and one 30 minute call to Spectrum and 10.99 later I finally got to watch it. It was a really cool movie, I really liked the way that it was done and the acting actually was really good. The storyline, while typical of movies of this type, it was still nice to see some...
