What standing would that be?
Sorry Trav, I certainly did not mean to suggest that you were. Really, I was just agreeing with your conclusion that the influence of society often outweighs individuals own personal beliefs.
Oh, I wasn't saying my autism and gender identity get me off the hook for my past fuck-ups. Sorry if it came out that way. I don't word right sometimes.
C.T. , why is "Jewtime" a moniker worthy of comment. By all means disagree with his/her comments (as i might if I understood his/her comment) or not, but your statement suggests that Jewtime is a pejorative. Is that what you intended? If so, please clarify.
Does "Jewtime" get any leniency for adding "420"? Mind you, I'm not defending his comments, just admiring the apparent, oxymoronic moniker. As for #Ihave, I've rarely heard of such moronic "Alan Alda-esque" B.S. Are these guys actually opening themselves up to criminal prosecution? If not, is it not an empty apology? I appreciate the sentiment you espouse Trav, but your being autistic and trans gendered really has nothing to do with the subject. People are animals and act accordingly. Perhaps they will evolve beyond base instincts and maybe they won't. Your personal choices have absolutely no relation to societal woes.
I just flagged it.
Great, we're hearing from someone called Jewtime.
If you keep beating up nice guys they’re gonna crack. Elliot Rodger was the first and he wasn't that nice. I'm teaching one of these nice guys the femnazi media is always berating to shoot a 9mm and an ar 15. He is always getting rejected because he is "too nice". I think teaching him to shoot is a good relief from the stress he deals with hoping some girl will finally settle for him. Maybe when he gets fed up with it all he'll put those shooting skills I taught him to good use 😉. I'll be watching the news lol.
I am always disappointed when I find out a book has not been written by the name that's on the cover. Who is Milo then?
As I recall, there's a biographical angle to this as well. Philadelphia Story, as a play and a movie, was designed to reconcile the public with Katharine Hepburn, who was considered too upper class and full of herself. So I recall from some Cary Grant bios, anyway.
This might be why there are so many bad catchers in MLB right now. Weiters. Sanchez. Gattis. Awful. It used to be the main power position, the strength of the team. Bench. Sanguillen. Munson. Fisk. Ott. Yeager. McCarver. Carter. et al
Why are you so worked up? I just wanted to point out that you didn't get your facts straight when you stated that ESPN punished Jemele Hill for "challenging" Trump, when in reality she called him a white supremacist. If I call you a white supremacist, I am not challenging you. But she wasn't suspended for putting him in the same category as a KKK Grand Wizard. Hill got suspended after she called for a boycott, which is indisputable. When I informed you of your error, you changed the topic to the divide between editorial and business, as a distraction, as anyone reading the above can clearly see. I had not even mentioned this topic, and there was no reason for you to bring it up.Here's a link to show you what actually happened. Try to be more accurate in the future.http://thehill.com/homenews/media/354588-espn-suspends-jemele-hill-for-violation-of-social-media-policy
Why not hand out fresh, nutritious sweetbreads instead of sweetmeats?
He’s a fine writer, but woefully off base on his history and science. And he doesn’t understand Burroughs at all.
Burroughs had ir right, "language is a virus." Flouride is a waste by product of the aluminun "tinfoil hat." Thanks to Alan Cabal for laying it all down. Who will pick it up?
I still love reading Camus, he is more than just a philosopher. Sartre and de Beauvoir - meh - not so much. She's not much of a thinker frankly. In any case, you make a good point about "can't read philosophy." It can be obscure, philosophers are famous for making essentially simple things make sound very complex. But surely, there is a merit to it. I've studied philosophy both formally and informally, and although one can get caught up in too many definitions, we still have to make some. Perhaps deep down, you are an artist and art doesn't care for philosophy.
That's professor talk.
Does your existence precede your essence?
I don't think I'd know one way or the other.
Are you an existentialist?
Yep. Trite is past its freshness date. Banal is dopey on the vine.
I think it'd be best if a neutral writer researched and wrote the scandal stories (or better yet, reporters kept political views to themselves). I think we're at a point where the constant injection of politics into stories about bad actions by bad people muddies the water far too much. Who gives a shit if a mass killer in Vegas is left or right? He's a fucking killer. Why people care about what Hillary has to say about Weinstein is beyond me. What about Javanka? They hung out with Weinstein too. Does association really transfer guilt? What about Trump and his transgressions, are they really any better or worse because he calls himself a Republican? See what I just did, I made your well-written article that I thoroughly enjoyed and found informative into a stupid political tit-for-tat.
The US is used to focusing on athletic talent, but not skill so much, as in Europe. European basketball players coming here to play are much more skilled than homegrown players. Soccer is a sport of skill, not pure athleticism. The people who say the problem is that our best athletes don't play soccer have no idea what they are talking about. The US certainly has enough good athletes in the sport that it could never lose to Trinidad, population 1 million, if it were just a matter of athleticism, which cannot be taught.
In answer to the question at the end of the article: Social pressures grounded in religious belief used to keep the id in fetters.
I love the photo, reminds me of something out of Hair (the movie)
You're reading too much into it. It was the afternoon, we were all drinking Schlitz. Joe didn't particularly like cats, but we'd adopted one, named him Merle, and he just was stuck with him for the photo. And private pictures like this had nothing to do with his post-graduate career. No social media. His straight A's probably landed him job, after service in the Army.
Thanks for the rapid response, but inquiring minds want to know, "What is the significance of the fucking cat?" Joking aside, I truly enjoy your theme "pictures of you". It is actually one of the few articles I look forward to reading each week on any site P.S. Really, what's the deal with Che holding a cig, Schlitz, and a pussy? You can not convince me that this picture( or one like it) was not a hindrance to G.I. Joes indoctrination into the CIA.
GI Joe. In ROTC to pay for college. Totaled a '64 Mustang he re-built summer of '74 a week into the fall semester. I was in the car. Everyone unscathed except the lawn of a neighbor's house. He just retired from CIA.
I want to hear more about the friend in army fatigues holding a Schlitz and a cat.
Trump-Schmump. Pennywise, a pound of foolishness. Pence now, there's the rub.
Because you're a strange bird, Feathers. and you better watch out, because I'm feeling muy caliente today. i'm a dancing cactus, you better watch out, you might get pricked.
A Jack & Coke? A 24 year old? Why not just order a Jack & Apple Juice like the other pre-schoolers at the playpen bar?
As usual, you hit the nail on the head. Like you, "I may use Equifax, or perhaps my accountant does, but I’ve never heard of the firm, " As a result, I can't believe that my info may have been hacked with ZERO participation or knowledge on my part. I getting pissed all over again,.
Heard a report that Ms Heyer's mother said she died of a heart attack? Anything new on this?
Russ's mother was born six years before mine, who just died. That is remarkable in itself. She seems to have been a good lady.
Easy, Texan. My favorite was the 1960 red Valiant car she won. We never had "cool" cars, always Dodges, since my dad, through his car wash, got discounts. I don't remember a single jingle; too young I guess.
