Thanks. Most people on social media are off the rails with this stuff.


The trans community is poorly served by the activists who claim to speak for them, it's a long running problem.

Umm, no one Fing cares how much you paid for it - if the maximum price the rental market will bare is $6000/mo then that’s all you can collect in rent.


Now do wages.

Heh, I split my own lip years ago holding the pads for a guy doing those, the guy was wiry and I didn't realize how hard I should have been bracing, drove my own hand right into my mouth.

" It turns out that what Conservatives... most appreciate about figures like Martin Luther King Jr. and Frederick Douglass is that they're dead, and cannot defend themselves when their words and ideas are misappropriated. " That's not a uniquely conservative vice, the liberals like to for...

You know, I've often critiqued Ayn Rand for her brutal writing style and need to beat the reader over the head with her points for hundreds of pages at a time, but this thread is making me think maybe she had her reasons.

Double standards and hypocrisy don't rise to the level of things requiring the mods, calling them out when seen is perfectly sufficient.

I really don't know much about this topic, but here's how it looks to me: some people actually want to abolish the police while others just want to re-allocate funds. So the way to get both of these groups on board is to use a deliberately vague slogan that can mean what either group wants it to me...

You mean getting thrown of discussion boards? No, it's like living in a small town where the church controls everything, and constantly looking over your shoulder before you say anything the church might not approve of lest you be socially and professionally ostracized. While I had my restaurant op...

There are those of us who consider a place to live a human right. Someone's responsible when poverty makes that an impossibility. That doesn't answer my question, and it goes right back to the trope I mentioned earlier about declaring things human rights and then acting as if that exempts them from...

Do you think property owners owe people a place to stay? Like, if I own a duplex and live in one unit and rent out the other, do I not get to set the price and conditions for the person I'm renting to?

Oswald and Sirhan Sirhan were almost certainly programmed. The family of MLK also think he was the victim of a deep state hit https://www.nytimes.com/1997/03/28/us/dr-king-s-son-says-family-believes-ray-is-innocent.html I've always thought that there were far too many moving pieces with either of t...

I think it is a smart move on Microsoft’s part. They get to become a large player in the video game world along with selling the operating systems that they can run on. It looks like they waited until a scandal occurred to get a better deal on “damaged goods”. That's my read as well, even with the ...

That's what I mean, "whites" are both not an even remotely homogeneous group, nor any worse than anyone else in world history, I just find this self flagellation to be weird and off-putting.

I'm good with demilitarize the police. I asked some liberal friends of mine about why "reform the police" was rejected as a slogan (same number of syllables, more accurate, etc), and could not get them to budge from "the time for reform is past" even though all of them admitted ...
