getting rid of NN will just make the place more like pay-tv. on the upside, the whole free information/video/porn/music thing was ruining journalism/the film industry/the porn industry/the music industry anyway. It will mean the introduction of more corporate authoritarianism, intended to prevent t...

I really don't think anyone is "getting their way". The whole SJW/BLM/Antifa vs. alt-right/white-nationalism is a BS circus sideshow. The same goes for the constant battle between Trump and the media. None of this s**t really matters to people who have real struggles just getting by in lif...

Think of politics this way: Whenever any political party goes too far afield for the tastes of their expected supporters, the result is that they will lose. When this is applied to the Democratic Party in the United States, constant protesting will deplete financial resources for the next president...

I know a lot of people now consider the NYT a "mainstream liberal rag", but this article seems reasonably balanced... https://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/10/opinion/sunday/the-real-problem-with-americas-inner-cities.html?mcubz=0 I think there is something of merit to the argument that "th...

I'd probably find Cenk annoying even if he were a conservaive. He just has that obnoxious personality that I find to be rather grating after a while. The only good thing about it if he were a conservaive is that I could take great pleasure in the fact that he'd be driving liberals up a wall. :P He ...

The last thread got derailed and locked, but I'm still interested in what people genuinely think. I'm still taken aback that even making a conjecture that it might have something to do with past racism got me accused of being an "apologist" and anti-white racist.

Given that the symptoms of autism include lack of social reciprocity, lack of wanting to point things out or instigate the expression of emotions, I'd say that getting excited is not an autistic trait at all. Not saying autistic people don't ever get excited, but if you are generally "excitabl...

He hasn't and won't inflict any "beatdown" on me. Then stop whining for support. All he did was cry about me attacking whitey because I believe there are causal connections in human culture. He wants to pretend past racism has no effect on black culture. To even talk about reality trigger...

Perhaps the resident "rational centrist" adifferentname will correct your blatant logical fallacies since he takes so much offense at being labelled "right wing". Who are you quoting? It certainly can't be me, as I don't consider myself to be a "centrist". As for "...

Not sure if you want to discuss the basis of the argument or your opponent's ungentlemanly behaviour. This guy is a typical specimen of the millennial contingent of the US/UK far right. They are a product of the protected "safe space" of internet anonymity. You notice they don't even show...

I think the black "ghetto" culture mentioned is maladaptive. I don't believe it is caused by genetics or some kind of character flaw that can be attributed to race. You know black people who immigrate from Africa don't have the same cultural problems. A large part of American black cultur...

It's black behavior that causes black poverty Would you admit that there is a culture in black communities where underachieving is praised and success via legitimate means chastised? And you stop there because you want people to just assume it's all because black people just suck. It couldn't possi...

It sounds like the Marfa Lights, which I saw as a kid. Sadly, it's been explained. As the ground cools in the evening, it compresses slightly. This compression causes the piezoelectric effect in buried crystals, and that type of electrical discharge may cause lights to appear. Sorry. I really wante...
