“No, the sick part is that good, hard, honest work like waiting tables has a dirty image (to some) but getting rich from gambling other people's money is glamorous. I'd have no problem with many "waitresses" getting paid as much as some Wall Streeters: they work just as hard if not harder, and provide a better service to society.”

So open a restaurant and pay your waitresses mega-bucks. See how long you stay in business.”
“OK. He was strung out on drugs, and they made him get naked, go outside, and masturbate. Then the doctor lied to the family about what happened, who in turn, lied to the press. Ordinarily the cops would've arrested him for indecent exposure, but they decided to let him go and lie about him being on drugs.
You're right; that makes a lot of "sense". Dunno why I tend to think of mental health issues when this type of thing happens...”

“In 2004, a guy who played QB at a major university was "diagnosed" with Lyme disease after being caught in the middle of a busy street screaming that he was God. Two separate investigations followed, one by the police and another by the NCAA, and then nothing was heard again.
In reality, the guy ingested WAY too much acid and was at that point essentially insane. He had way more people watching, a far more thorough investigation, and much more to lose. Yet the story was buried.
And most drug arrests, at least the first couple offenses, lead to rehab. Your argument actually helps prove my point.”
“"bla bla blah, i am not listening because this does not fit what i already believe, bla bla blah."
It's better for some people to believe this type of thing only happens to drunks, drug addicts, and crazy people. They aren't interested in the complexities of the brain and how it affects human behavior.”
“By the fact that so many of them still wave their confederate flags, we might be able to work something out here.
I kid, but seriously... Northerners hold the South back from being who they really want to be, and the North can't really move forward with the South holding them back.
What would the two new countries be named though??”

“lets see Washington would be in the south. Virginia Missouri etc. you can have the pilgrims because they didn't really exist. You can't have Arlington tho. Was some made up story that the northerners put up because after the civil war everything was stripped from the south. even to being the first settlers in America. So please please before you northerners go on with your IGNORANCE, study history abit more. because as you say IGNORANCE can make you blind to the truth.”
