“Ignorance and naivete abound in both of those states.”

“Is this \surprising in a country where "patriotic Constitution loving conservatives" numbering more than one million petitioned to be allowed to secede from the union when President Obama was reelected.”
“humans are corrupt. you, for instance, have demonstrated yourself to have regularly presented lies as facts. that said -- we had PLENTY of roads and bridges repaired during that time period. and our unemployment rate is below 5%. most of the whining i hear comes from red states where the stimulus block grants went to political cronies and contributors. if you actually paid attention you'd seem less clueless.”
“in addition to that, there's the body language that shows up in social and traditional media: white gangsta wannabes displaying their firearms like prosthetic genitalia. and doing it poorly (finger inside the trigger guard? really?)
neither you nor i need (or choose) to make a spectacle when we carry. this is the center of the issue: it's a right, not a *mission*. nor is it, frankly, a measure of patriotism any more than any other choice is.”

“Both concealed and open carry are *privileges*, even when allowed by law. You might as well claim that it's people's right to drive a car, regardless for their driving record.”
“they're just itching for another try. this time -- let 'em go. without all the federal money (military, subsidies, etc.) they'll devolve into a slave economy in a decade.”

“Nope, all we have to do is wait for two or three inches of snow, or better yet an ice storm, and send in the drones to take out any pickup truck with a gun rack and a decal of a Confederate battle flag.
Then we'll send in the army again to enforce voting rights.”

“Just give those of us who aren't of this secession mindset time to get out. Portland sounds like a good place to go.”
“i would posit that the positive glee with which death-penalty cultists greet executions IS (im)morally equivalent, especially as there has never been any evidence that execution "maintains a stable and lawful society" (esp. as the societies that most subscribe to it are, and have historically been, anything but). vengeance is not the dispassionate, reasoned response you pretend it to be, context and "reasoning" (as you characterize your process) aside.
and i am sure you meant to say "NO moral difference".”
“if you think sterling had more than one dose of the clap since the 40's for exactly the same behaviors, you're delusional. it's just a matter of severity of disease.”

“Excellent point! As Mr. Sterling was trying to get laid by a "Street Person" to use his term, I'm sure he has had interludes with many a hooker over the years.”

“So true. Sterling's reputation around LA is actually MUCH worse than Magic's in the philandering department (just look at the type of women he's STILL running around with today), and Magic has never denied his youthful exploits or held it up as a model to be followed, so Sterling's shot missed the mark in many ways.
Unlike Sterling, when Magic had to face the music of his making, he stood up, did it like a man, and blamed no one but himself for his problems. THEN he turned around and became an HIV/AIDS activist, and one of the major figures responsible for de-stigmatizing the disease.
Sterling isn't fit to kiss Magic's...shoes! :-))))))))”

“I know! He (Sterling) is running around with women 50 years younger than himself and flaunting that by bringing them to games, giving them apartments and cars, etc., and he has the nerve to screech about Magic and his womanizing from the 90's? LOL It just makes me scream with laughter. You can't make this stuff up!”
“and sterling -- he of the serial mistresses -- is in ANY position to make that kind of judgement (we'll assume for the sake of the joke that you are beyond reproach and always have been, Apostle Dick)? oh yeah: he's white. ok for him.”
