“Haha, I sold someone a couple of twinkies at work today and they were probably two dollars total. Personally, I think those things are disgusting.”

“Oh boohoo. There's no systemic oppression of white people, no disproportionate suffering...at all.

And if it happens so often, I'd live to see you cite an example or two.”

abhorson on Nov 12, 2012 at 13:54:32

“there's no "systemic oppression" of ANY people - not in the USA... at all.

there are examples of systemic discrimination (NOT oppression) against white people in education - see Supreme Court cases on higher education - for every case won there are (clearly) many thousands who didn't sue but were affected.

there are government contracts which favor, or outright set aside, minority owned businesses ... 

there are quotas in government hiring - perhaps not "outright" quotas on paper but there's a strong EMPHASIS which results in the same outcome ...

there are government programs - benefits - which, though theoretically open to anyone, good luck - (medical, low income housing, assistance)  if you're a Mexican woman in CA (illegal) you can give birth (for free) in a variety of centers, hospitals... try going to one if you're a low income white woman.

Now, frankly, I think it just creates an UNDERCLASS.... a class that becomes dependent on government (including gov unions) and drives CORRUPTION and INEFFICIENCIES ... 

that corruption then spills over in the electoral process and you end up with a political clientele based on the ability to siphon off government funds ...

but, don't worry.... the state is strong...”

“Uh, whites are the racial majority, hold most of the wealth in the U.S... What exactly do they need protection from?”

abhorson on Nov 12, 2012 at 00:30:43

“discriminatory and racial preferences can be directed at ANY "color" or "racial" group...

just because you are white doesn't mean it cannot happen ... it can happen AND if often does....”

“I'm not going to say a movie is good just because it's popular. Popularity is easy to grade but whether something is good or not is all opinion. Example: The Transformers movies. They were very popular and they sucked. I mean, SUCKED HARD.”

Rexual Vasquez on Nov 23, 2012 at 11:47:15

“Its the transformers movies....they were popular, but not NEARLY as popular as star wars, not even close, bad comparison, very bad.”

“Who you callin' a hoax!?

No, seriously. I don't see the logic in your comment. The guy's clearly got personal demons but how does that make the information he presented any less credible?

By the way, I haven't even seen this famous video yet but from what I've read this Kony guy's pretty real.”

“Kony is real and a bad guy. However Invisible Children and the motive of this whole campaign is highly suspect based on what I have read.”

“Downgrade! Honestly, even the third installment was overkill. It's so rare to have a film franchise with a sequel that's as good as (or better than) it's predecessor. Toy Story comes to mind, Bill And Ted...
I know someone's thinking "Star Wars!" but I've never seen them so, I can't say that.

Anyway, Home Alone's legacy is literally pooed upon with every sequel. Stop the madness.”

Rexual Vasquez on Oct 15, 2012 at 11:31:50

“well you dont really have to have watched star wars to know that the sequels are just as good or better than the 1st...the legend of star wars itself speaks for that, if it wasn't successful then you probably wouldn't even know about it...sooo yeah.”

“What's your reason for saying that? I've actually been helped police more often than I've ever been questioned by one. I've been pulled over twice (with no resulting tickets and officers were always polite), approached once on the street (I was near a school area past the curfew for teens. I wasn't a teen so after showing my ID that was the end of it). Other than those instances my interactions with police were extremely positive and helpful.”
