Quote
American Millennials are far more likely than older generations to say the government should be able to prevent people from saying offensive statements about minority groups, according to a new analysis of Pew Research Center survey data on free speech and media across the globe.

U.S. Millennials More Likely to Support Censoring Offensive Statements About MinoritiesWe asked whether people believe that citizens should be able to make public statements that are offensive to minority groups, or whether the government should be able to prevent people from saying these things. Four-in-ten Millennials say the government should be able to prevent people publicly making statements that are offensive to minority groups, while 58% said such speech is OK.

I find it fascinating that this is the issue you have decided to focus your interest in.












Wait, actually, come to think of it, no I don't.

Not sure if this qualifies for its own thread, but it certainly is news to me. China is implementing a game that shows off how good a citizen you are. Same kind of thing as a credit score is in America.
Often incoherent. Tends to ramble on about various topics.
Hopes to get beyond that.

I hate it when armed militants complain about backlash.

I wonder if  “Fluffy Unicorn” will be charged with “desertion in the face of the enemy” by the Bundy Militia.

Irony Alert! Irony Alert! Irony Alert!

"Quit acting as militia and stirring up fear," armed Bundy Militia spokesperson Lavoy Finicum said of the FBI, adding, "This isn't Russia. This isn't the Berlin Wall."

Buy ‘em books, send ‘em to college, and look at what you get for your money:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/19/politics/judge-judy-supreme-court-poll/index.html?sr=twCNN01191619/politics/judge-judy-supreme-court-poll/index.html%200618PMStoryLink&linkId=20488642

It’s scary to even think about how US ‘high school only’ graduates would respond to that survey.

I can attest to the fact that a significant proportion of people who manage to obtain a college degree are stupid as fuck.

The Bundy Militia certainly has some interesting members.

Take Robert “LaVoy” Finicum for instance: The Powers That Be™ removed foster children from the home of the armed Bundy Militia spokesperson, thus depriving him of an estimated six-figure annual income from The Powers That Be™.

http://www.opb.org/news/series/burns-oregon-standoff-bundy-militia-news-updates/militant-says-foster-children-were-pulled-from-his-home-lavoy-finicum-burns-oregon/

Perhaps The Powers That Be™, when the situation was brought to their attention, decided that “boys often landed there from mental hospitals, drug rehabs and group homes for emotionally distressed youth” might be safer in the home of someone who is not an armed militant?

And then we have Neil Sigurd Wampler: Wampler was accused of killing his own father, who was asleep in his bed at the time, with a 16-inch long eye bolt. He was convicted of second-degree murder in 1977.

“Wampler has been outspoken about gun rights. In 2013, he wrote a letter to the editor in The San Luis Obispo Tribune commending the local sheriff's stance ‘against any federal infringement of our Second Amendment rights...’ In the letter, he wrote, ‘We gun owners in San Luis Obispo owe a big thank you’ to the sheriff.”

I don't often make use of the term "entitled manbabies", because it would give me nothing to use in situations like this.

"The government who I consider illegitimate and who I am currently bearing arms against wont let me keep my free source of labour that they pay me for!  It won't let me exclusively use land that is intended for public use!  Waaaaaaaah!  Tyranny!"

They are truly a shining example of what Libertarianism has to offer.

I'm not being sarcastic, I think they're pretty representative from what I've seen.
