“Well since this is likely my last chance to use this message system, I will merely say that we cannot agree. Also, I really dislike the new force Facebook system and I will sorely miss this.

Good luck to you.”

“I've already found a couple better sites. RawStory.com and Policymic. I was will to deal with the conversation format but Facebook is where I draw the line.

Good luck to you as well.”

“Ha! Pierre and Desean disagree with your assessment. Hail to the Redskins!!”

“Pierre hasn't been good since the Colts run to losing against the Saints and I don't worry about a guy that the Eagles didn't want.”

“Well this will quickly degenerate into real ha.tred. No, not offensive in the least and we will spank Dallas twice this year.”

“Wrong on both counts. It may not offend you but it is offensive.

You have neither the receivers nor the defense to beat us.”

“Gold... that is the color you are trying to think of, and I have already completely rejected as absurd your claim that anyone would choose a team name that is a pejorative. That flies in the face of any reason and you know it.”

mld1983 on Jun 2, 2014 at 14:52:02

“So then you're saying redskins isn't an offensive term? You're as wrong as the team's god-awful colors.”

“I have nothing but contempt for a Dallas fan who grew up in DC. Let us get that straight. No one would select a pejorative term for a team name. That makes no sense at all.”

mld1983 on Jun 2, 2014 at 10:27:58

“No love lost for fans of a team that wears canary yellow pants or would choose a pejorative term for a team name.”

“No, in this case it is a noun, expressing contempt or disapproval. Do you know anything about the team?”

mld1983 on Jun 2, 2014 at 09:26:45

“The word isn't the mascot or logo as is the case with NY Giants. The mascot is a picture of Native American and that isn't the problem. The mascot exudes those characteristics you outlined. The problem is the team name and the name Redskins is offensive. The team that would use a pejorative word for a team name is this team. It's been using the name for decades. Many teams professional, college, and high school have done the same thing. It's surprising you think people would not do this. I'm a Cowboys fan who grew up outside of DC and I know all about this team.”

“What team would use a pejorative for a mascot? It makes no sense. Mascots are heralds of strength, tenacity, courage, and honor. We will not agree on this or the outcome.”

mld1983 on May 30, 2014 at 14:00:51

“You're using pejorative incorrectly; it's an adjective, not a noun. Second, wth are you talking about? Why are you bringing up mascots? We will not agree but you will be wrong.”

“It is not a slur and that has been repeatedly shown. It will never be changed. Hail to the Redskins!”

mld1983 on May 30, 2014 at 11:28:31

“It is a slur. Though early research shows it may have referred to the identifying of tribes using red paint on their faces, the term--as I noted--took on a racial connotation. A MN newspaper, The Daily Republican, posted an ad about rewards for scalping "red-skins", in the late 1860s and it kept that connotation since. You might not change but the name will. Money is every businesses weakness.”

“How is this comment in any way useful or effective, when said to someone who doesn't believe in 'god'? Your statement has about as much impact on anyone without a belief in 'god' as an ant's fart.”

“In his infinite wisdom, God listens when a worthy couple prays for a child. He then reserves a soul for that child, pending its successful birth. The unborn fetus does not yet merit the soul.”

“In your heart you think it is a slur, but it is not. It will never be changed. No one should bow to the pressure of the easily offended, especially when they presume far too much with too little fact.”

“it's not a matter of if it will be changed, it's when, dude.”

mld1983 on May 30, 2014 at 10:41:49

“It is a slur and will be changed. Money is every businesses weakness and that will get pressured until Snyder changes the name. Reacting to a racial slur is not being oversensitive. When rewards were be given for killing and scalping Native Americans, they were called "red-skins" and into the 1930s, American film and literature used the slur in a negative context.”

“We were discussing VA healthcare. Sorry if I did not make that clear. I think everyone is focused on the incredible delays to see a doctor and those who have succumbed to illness waiting to be seen.”

Tcatgirl on May 30, 2014 at 12:36:28

“Yes, but claiming this President has done nothing for veterans is not true. This is a tragedy in the way our veterans have been handled-no doubt- but while there are the ones claiming delays and deaths-in Phoenix we are seeing letters from veterans and their families saying how great their care was and they were seen promptly. So let's wait to hear the whole story before republicans start another investigation-while ignoring their own part in this.”

I was talking about Cheney's opinion on this particular matter, only.”

“Then sign you kids up or your grandkids

Or BE ALL FOR A DRAFT, or mandatory service.

We cannot continue to have only 0.5% of our population serving in the military and policing the world when so few serve.

Cheney lied and started one half-assed war and one war for revenge. HE and his chickenshite attitude, resulted in the crisis we are in now, not only with Veterans services (as he and Bush did not plan for our soldiers returning thus DID NOT BUDGET for the millions who have been added to the rolls) but crashing the country's economy in keeping the wars off the books, giving massive tax cuts during war and more...............

Cheney holds ZERO credibility for many.”

“Obama ran on the VA issue and promised to make it better. Caused the problem, no. Failed to help make it better, yes.”

Tcatgirl on May 29, 2014 at 11:51:55

“President Obama increased support for veterans by signing a new GI Bill and provided tax credits to encourage businesses to hire vets, he donated his Nobel Prize money to Fisher House, signed the veterans cost of living Adjustment Act, improved basic housing allowance for military personnel and improve improved access for veterans to receive PTSD treatment, meanwhile republicans have voted against 8 bills to help veterans since Obama took office. In February they filibustered a democratic bill that would have increased VA funding by 20 billion over 10 years and added 26 new VA healthcare facilities.”
