Hey now Roger, it's not like current day wealth disparities can be directly traced to slavery or anything.  Black people just need to whine less.

But how is anyone that is still alive in any way accountable for that?

Through perpetuating a system where that continues to impact on black people to this day?

I mean, duh?

Be kind to our sea lion friends.

It's so tragic that PDS has to hear about peoples' gripes.  It's so fucking awful that he has to endlessly listen to shit that NOBODY IS ACTUALLY SAYING.  I mean, aside from AM radio jocks.  I feel just rotten about how PDS's quality of life has dropped based on this entire fiasco, and I hope that Laurie Schlessinger and Sean Hannity can help him out by owning the libs about all of this.

I wanted to say this, but I wanted to say it with my ass, and itís hard to get your point across with your ass without a keyboard you can /feel/.

Thanks for covering me

This is why I bought  the good keyboard.

Oh boy. And I remember, it seems so recent, they were concerned about you selling back unused supplies at a profit.

I get the impression you canít say much, but I cannot help but assume that the fun this will result in is the kind that ends, much like a water hammer in a sewage treatment plant, with a loud bang and a slowly rising mass of steaming, toxic muck.

(Yeah, Iíve been rereading the thread.)

I knew something was in the wind, so I had been opening 1.5 projects for every one I closed since last December.  Now there's a fair stack of current projects going that all require attention.  I hadn't seen a need to brief anyone.  I am sure things will be fine.

A difference in opinion over what constitutes financial malfeasance.  We were asked to do something improper, we reported it, we were all shit-canned.

I expect this to lead to hilarity.
That is the way with attempted cover-ups.  Every action taken just adds to the body of evidence.  Firing whistle-blowers en masse is right up there with setting fire to the police station to obliterate the record of your traffic ticket.

So, are you going to take a second look at that "worst-job-in-the-world" offer from a week or so ago?

I was waiting for my 2nd interview when this happened.  :lulz:

But how is anyone that is still alive in any way accountable for that? That's the part that bugs me. Even if people are still being very indirectly victimized it's not like any of the people responsible for it are still around to extract compensation from. Slavery has already ended, and the people responsible for it are all long dead. It may be true that black people are poor because their ancestors were poor because their ancestors' ancestors were slaves, but dwelling on the instigating factor that started it isn't going to do a damn thing to end the cycle of poverty. Dwelling on slavery is a distraction from ongoing problems like the discriminatory hiring and housing policies mentioned later in that same article and, most importantly of all, the general lack of upward economic mobility for the poor

Sweet Jesus, shut the fuck up.  You sound like Richard Spencer.  :lulz:

The usual bullshit. Talking about slavery as if it had happened to them rather than having ended 30 or 40 years before the oldest people in the world were born. Blaming the continued existence of racism and sexism on people talking the wrong way and rolling out new politically correct terms to replace the old ones (or sometimes refurbished variants of really old ones; how is the term "people of color" any better than the term "colored people", how the fuck is talking like Yoda going to help anybody!? Politically correct speech is just a cheap easy pseudo-solution to a complex problem, the societal equivalent of trying to cure cancer by reciting long-winded prayers). Acting as if the KKK et al were representative of white people (which, BTW, is buying into the KKK's propaganda). Generalizing from isolated incidents. Acting as if non-minorities collectively comprised some kind od illuminati-like secret society that controls everything in an organized fashion. Affirming the consequent (All the politically powerful people are white men. Joe the Bum is a white man. Joe the bum is politically powerful).


You really need to stop huffing that right wing talk radio.

You're strawmanning me. I never said both sides were equally dangerous, just that they're both stupid and paranoid.

As is ANYONE in politics.  Even if you're a genius, to survive you have to let your paranoia make you stupid.  Some of them were just stupid to begin with, but the results are the same.

This applies to anyone and everyone running for office, anywhere, ever.

Oh, no.  How will the left ever recover from this?

Bercow has said that unless there's a change that the EU agrees to, he won't do it.

I mean, May would certainly try that. She is the first PM to ever be found in contempt of Parliament, after all.

More likely, May will end the Parliamentary session, since that would allow her to put the vote forward again.  But it would make it clear that she is being a tard.

To the people WAY THE FUCK in the back row.  :lol:

Captain Marvel was... OK. It uses the same skeleton of humor they have been using since Guardians of the galaxy, but the plot was weaker then average and they aren't great with the plots in general. That said its fun, the characters are entertaining but the films are giving diminishing returns.

In a Superhero movie, I want to see people in tights punch each other.

A lack of actual contradictions in the plot is also good.

I am not looking for Bonfire of the Vanities, here.

Saying "Teachable moment" to or about someone instantly guarantees that they will immediately stop listening.

Is this a teachable moment?

It's different when I do it.  :lulz:

Hey, I saw Captain Marvel yesterday and I liked it.

It looks pretty good.
