Buck, I think the recent "It's okay to be white" campaign or movement or statement or joke or whatever it is, portrays what you've been trying to say. And maybe a little bit what you're missing. Meaning, I get the whole "slippery slope" angle, but at the same time don't sweat the small stuff.

 

Only the dumbest and most hypocritical of motherfuckers would find this sign offensive. So naturally, there's investigations and trigger-warnings going off. Hook, line and sinker. Idiots.

I hadn't seen that. All I care about is this absurd "white supremacist" accusation being calmed.  It is offensive and unreasonable and slanderous.

I was listening to some early morning talk radio a few days ago, and one of the hosts was making fun of Jose Altuve for speaking with a heavy accent. The host then went on a small rant about how people who come to America should learn how to speak "proper English". 

 

What made that rant so funny to me was that I could barely understand the host, because he had a extremely strong southern accent and used terrible grammar.

Thoughts on the rise of these hoaxes? Anyone reasonable knows the truth lies in the middle. But this gives ammo against the "cause."

Fwiw, I believe in two-parent privilege, not white privilege. Except in criminal sentencing where similar crimes are punished in different ways depending on race of the offender. Not sure why we focus on police brutality and not THAT more. That's literally "the system" .... where in contrast cops are individuals, just like the hate crime hoaxers. Curious of your thoughts as I appreciate your insights.

They caught some black dude painting swastikas at a college like a month ago. I assume it was a setup. To cause racial strife.

also some black dude at k state manhattan wrote all kinds of racial slurs all over his own car.

 

all these hoaxes meant to divide us. To fuel the msm anti white anti American anti Christian rhetoric, possibly.  to eventually demoralize and destroy our country from within, to set up a more socialist/communist government. NWO shit.

 

it is not hidden that soros is behind a lot of far left organizations in this country...wonder why?

 

These marxists waited too long to start shit like this. There's cameras everywhere now. Hoaxes getting busted all the time.

 

but I really do think the most imminent enemy of the USA is the mainstream media, primarily the obvious anti conservative left wing media. Have to throw late night talk show into the same category, now. Colbert might as well be CNN, kimmel nmight as well be maddow. Lame as hell.

 

In a sense, the msm is radicalizing people. Against our legally elected administration, at the very least.

 

Dont get me wrong I believe in a free press....but press just means propaganda/opinion, nowadays, it sure seems.  Can't people just report the damn facts? Do we really need all the extra propaganda and hate along with the news?

I had to listen to some guy tell me that (paraphrasing here): "Trump is the most disrespected president of all time. People should show the President the amount of respect that he's due."

 

I agree with him to a certain extent, but it was hard to take my uber-conservative friend seriously when he (and a sizable portion of the country) also complained for 8 years that "Obama is a Muslim terrorist and should be deported." You can't ask for respect if you're not going to show any yourself.

Not sure if sizeable or illusion but I agree. He deserves a "level" of respect but clearly his behavior has given credence to lowering said level. He really needs to quit being such an asshole and more people will feel comfortable with his platform. He's his own 2nd worst enemy. Media of course being first. Somehow with tons of material they still make shit up. Their credibility is also deservedly shot just like his. Assholes everywhere.

I think that the dislike is mostly confined to white and very conservative Americans, since he hasn't insulted them (yet). I honestly think that people are disrespecting Trump for all the wrong reasons. I personally don't care about his name-calling and weird obsession with Hillary Clinton, but I do care about the Mueller probe and his probable collusion with Russia. If it is proven (and it's looking like it will) that Trump got outside assistance from Russia to win the Election, then he deserves to go down. And if it's true that Clinton also benefited from Russia, then she deserves to go down too. 

 

But anyways, here's something much less political. If you're going after someone, I don't get the problem with double-texting, because maybe they didn't receive your message. But don't triple-text, because then you just look like a stalker.

Yo, the majority this country has no morals or ethics. Small towns still, maybe. The death of morals and ethics picked up the pace a generation ago with the disenfranchisement of the baby boomers failing to live up to the hype of the previous 'greatest generation.'  Everything then became so cynical as they shoved cocoa puffs down their kids' throats and let the television be the babysitter. I truly think the baby boomers are one of the worst, most misguided generations of all-time.

I have been saying this to my dad (born in 55) for at least a decade. I have seen all kinds of crazy judgemental shit that baby boomers have pulled on kids when the boomers did even worse things when they were kids. I call the boomers the "hypocrite" generation. Also, the greed generation, basically most of the bad shit we've had to deal with was set up by them.

 

i am a dick to my dad, but he can take it.

 

but we have to be careful, too. The kind of world we leave the next generation. So far, I think we're leaving them confusion, hate, hypocrisy, identity politics > real politics, and victim mentality (a short list, as far as negative things go).

 

among other things, I teach my kids to respect all others, that nothing is owed to them by society or any one else (likewise they do not owe anyone anything- beyond taxes), that life is tough and does not always appear equal for everyone, dreams come true from actual physical and mental effort, that they are the most important person in the world - but they are also not better than anyone else, that god loves them as he loves others, do not lie/deceive, and to keep their eyes and ears and heart open.  On top of the 10 commandments.

Just so we're keeping score: the guy who wouldn't release his tax returns wants you to believe the tax policy that his party is creating is going to adversely affect him is absolutely precious. This isn't a party politics line, this is just common sense. Like an old-timey elixir salesman who doesn't drink his own magic potion but is willing to try convincing you of its miraculous benefits.

 

Anyone that's willing to buy into this fraud salesman gimmick: I got some swamp land in Florida that I'd love to introduce you to.

Does anyone know how analysts are able to predict the bill adding 1.5 trillion to the debt over 10 years? When they can't even agree on who it will affect and how? 

 

It's so confusing. 

 

Also, I read that it will lead to lower-middle income groups paying more in 2023. Huh??

I have a new working theory that part of what may make many baby boomers the worst is that they suffer from a kind of macro generational messiah complex. WW2 defining an era, being fought for 'the future' against a terrible evil, with baby boomers being most visibly 'the future' that was fought for. A large portion of an entire generation walks away from that with a misconstrued and inflated sense of self worth. How does a generation reconcile with the pressures associated with living up to 'the greatest generation's' sacrifice?

yes, I can see that.  there was also the Vietnam war that snuck in there that kind of divided the country!  That should factor into your theory, somehow.  

 

my dad (born 1955) is what I would call a workaholic.  but he grew up not wealthy, in Oklahoma, and was raised by a Native American family (adopted).  The small town he grew up in was approx. 1/3 european, 1/3 native, and 1/3 african.  not a lot of money in the community.  a lot of hunting, fishing, and tearing shit up old school.  they would have their trucks parked at school with rifles, shotguns, etc in the cabs, unlocked!  never a single incident. 

 

he remembers when he was in 3rd grade, they would learn/memorize portions of Pslams, from the bible, and he recalls the day his teacher said to the class, "Well, the Government says that I can no longer teach you kids things from the Bible". 

 

he came from essentially poverty, went to college, while working and married, got a bachelors degree, then a Masters degree in Medical Physics, and raising me (after my mom left us for the weeds and the wine).

 

to my dad, if you aren't constantly working as much/hard as you can, he thinks you're a pussy.  this is the main thing he is judgmental about.  Because I, on the other hand, follow the proverb - "one hand of rest is better than two fists full of labor and striving after the wind."

 

...how's that for white nuclear family?

Guy in his 40's in my history class: I don't follow sports anymore cause all these players are criminals and thugs. They used to be good role models and people you could look up to. Now all they care about is ****ing and drugs and playing for money. 

 

Me: Let me tell you about these two guys named Lawrence Taylor and Magic Johnson......
