    Careful with that. That is dangerously close to critical thinking which the New York times tells me is not the done thing

    I would normally take that with a grain of salt, but I threw all my remaining salt out. No I will sit back with the rest of my peers and wait for the governments of the world to save us all from ourselves with their truly amazing plan...

    They really screwed the pooch last year, but sometimes you just gotta have faith... at least while it's still legal. Or am I not allowed to say that? This freedom of speech thing gets tricky when you don't know EXACTLY what your are allowed to say and not to say... because "the feels" and all. I think you Biden Boys might have some more left to teach the world about your righteous ways.

    I don't know why anyone would want to rise up against a government that they feel is out of control. I mean, I know my forefathers had a good reason and all... but today, things are so different... right?

    yea some people are mad that government giving equal rights to minorities

    Why does it also seem like Fascist, White Supremacist and Religious nuts banded together when
    1.When they allowed non land owner to vote
    2.Slaves were Freed.
    3. Women suffrage
    4. Civil rights act ( which stated Minorities are equals)
    5. When people stated interracial mixing
    NOW
    6. Giving lgbtq+ rights too

    Yeah, I get that. Not that I understand the mentality behind it, but I can see why people who are given so much freedom in thought might react adversely to things they themselves do not understand or agree with.

    Just like it's hard for me to understand the mentality of someone who does not want others how to tell them how to live, think, feel or love... but then attack other's for having their own beliefs which in no way affect them in anyway, except for maybe hurting their feelings. Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do.

    Things were most certainly different back then, not just in America, but the whole world. Like 2pac said though, "Some things never change."
    1. There's probably more slavery today than there was back in those, even here in a America where people are still bought and sold to this day.
    2. Nowadays, nobody gets treated with respect. We're all talked down to and treated like we are dumb.
    3. The killing doesn't stop either. China, abortions, etc...

    Yeah, sure, attack those people all day, if they are actively attacking you. But that is not who I was referring to.

    What it means is that America stepped up and changed the world. They said enough, and ended it. Then as time went by, it slowly crept back in.

    If you want to hate someone, go right on ahead, it's your right to do so. When you start attacking others though, or forcing your opinions on others, that is where the line is drawn. And that goes for both sides.

    But yeah, if you want to be a hating miserable little piece of shit, by all means, be my guest. But if you want other people to respect your right to your own beliefs, you better damn well do the same.

    Almost as though "I may not like what you have to say but I will defend to the death your right to say it" is the governing principle.

    Do you. Draw your lines where ever you want, as long as you don't cross my line... otherwise you are inviting me to come over and fuck your lines up. And vice versa.

    Is that not allowed? I must have missed the post where it said I am not allowed to speak my mind. Perhaps you can point it out to me.

    I've been visiting this site since you joined, it just took me a little longer to join myself.

    I get it. Some of you have very touchy lines, and get you all worked up in a tizzy very quickly. And when you see my taking carefree steps over those lines, your minds lose it. We will see how close I get before your really show your last lines. In the mean time, I'm still having fun, smiling. Because remember, those are your lines, and not mine. I am inviting you to come test me. I have nothing to fear.
