Re: Randomness

I'm pretty sure gifted land is the greatest gift of all.

I mean I read 'The Good Earth' and I'm pretty sure that was the message?

Re: Randomness

I'm considering a move to Hawaii.

And by "considering" ... I mean I'm saying it to my wife a lot and at this point she's pretty much ignoring me on the topic. Not happening. :(

Re: Randomness

I grew up going to Regal Cinema in Brooklyn... it's a magical place. Big screens, comfy seats, and the family ahead of you brought a full dinner of Chinese food. Every time I go to an action/blockbuster, somebody will have smuggled in a full feast of aromatic food. One time I couldn't get a visual o...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I am sorry if you felt and still feel that way- it's not how I try to go about debating, especially with people who I respect.

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I see you, I hear you, I read you loud and clear. I just disagree with your conclusions. I can argue about this topic until the cows come home. But what I can't really put up with are the accusations that I am arguing in bad faith, or don't respect you or your views, or I'm just calling you an idiot...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I literally went through several LONG posts and replied to every single fucking word. Thousands of words.

And apparently I did it all to troll you and be mean to you? OK...

I'm here for an apology at this point.

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I did try, and that's why this is so depressing.

Oh, you edited in more self pity stuff.

I tried to have a discussion in good faith.

You adamantly don't believe I did.

So why am I still here?

Such disrespect.

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I can't believe I spent literally over an hour of my life writing a 7,000-word reply in which I tried my hardest to be respectful and consider your views, and find the agreements and disagreements, in a vain hope of finding amicable resolution and putting the matter to rest. Seriously, I put fucking...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I do appreciate that you refuse to acknowledge my experience in any way other than calling it dirty pool. It's not insulting at all. Since I have to take your assertions as fact to make you happy. I so badly wish you would address my point of view as even remotely valid. I don't get why you even en...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Ah, I took my birthday off. Now I am 30, old and wise. :lol: Good intentions does not excuse the PC movement. It is easy to point an extreme example and say "Ah, but that is extreme, and an outlier!" and then dismiss it out of hand. But other people see the extreme examples, and they might not give ...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

To which I pointed out that I think you're making a few leaps in logic. Still do. Most notably, that the Democratic Party is splintering for that reason and not because the two large parties are massive umbrellas that have been destined for infighting for a long time. I've never said it is SOLELY r...
