    I think he is right. Many people already knew how corrupt the MSM is but this election has helped many more see it even more clearly.

    That may be true but Democrats don't decide elections any more than Republicans do. It is the independent swing voters that sway the election one way or the other.

    I don't think very many voters know anything about Iran and the policies and position of Trump or Clinton regarding Iran. American voters are that informed or nuanced in my opinion.

    Oh please tell us all more about how Trump has hit his ceiling, how Trump can't win on the first ballot, how Trump can't beat Cruz how Trump can't beat Hillary... Have you been right predicting anything this election cycle? It was obvious that McCain would lose in 2008. It was obvious that Romney would lose in 2012. It is obvious that Hillary will lose in 2016... yet you hold onto this bizarre hope for some reason. Why don't you bet me $10? You can have Hillary for the easy win... right?

    I hope Rand does this for every single bill that he isn't given time to read. The federal government can't buy a toilet seat without taking 6 months to study, but they want to create new laws to put people in prison in 2 days. Nonsense.

    Interesting that 98% of gender-confused boys revert back to their normal sex and only 88% of girls do. I wonder why the difference? I mean, it's not all that surprising just given the lesbian/feminist bond that exists and seems very strong, whereas gay men don't seem so steadfast and secure in their delusion. It seems girls do find a kind of solidarity and/or community in their gender identity, but it would be interesting to really get an idea of why that is. Anyone have any resources?

    Are you so far out of touch with reality that you have forgotten how this works? Unfavorability doesn't mean jack. Trump and Hillary could both have a 90+ unfavorability and yet one of them will be the next president. It doesn't matter if only 1% people in the whole country vote... one of them will still be the next president. Delegates matter and Trump has broken 1237 even before CA votes. He will be the nominee and there is nothing we can do about it. Trump will win on the first ballot at the convention. It won't be Rand or Jeb! or Kasich or Christie or Graham... it will be Trump. Electoral votes matter and Trump will win more than Hillary. Are you still thinking she will pull this out or are you thinking this is finally the year for Ralph Nader?

    Not a problem. My issue is that a lot of the people who seem to object to me speaking Spanish in public seem completely incapable of stringing together a coherent sentence of their own. Personally, I prefer market solutions to language preference as I stated earlier. There are certain ethnic markets where you're almost required to speak whatever the shop's products' national origin demands. Hell, there are certain areas of the country where you might be better off speaking another language to order a soup or cup of coffee. From an official standpoint, I have no problem with English becoming the official language of documents and phone lines and other such Government services (since we have them at all). Groups could easily translate those materials if a certain area has a need for them. There's certainly no shortage of people who can guide others through a brochure or process, and perhaps for a very small acknowledgement on the back of a pamphlet, La Raza could do something other than race bait and give people ammo to extend the hatred that keeps the organization in business. Let me extend this to what you said in your response. When you go to the store and everyone else is speaking Spanish, the issue is twofold. The first is that the patrons are speaking Spanish, which really should not bother you unless you feel a strange need to know what everyone around you is saying. Eavesdropping? :p The second is actually far more serious, though, which is that you can't do business with employees who can't communicate with you. I have voiced concerns along those lines in the past at some delightful Asian markets with mixed success. If they want your money, a business is going to do its best to help you out. The school example goes back to what I just said. Official languages dictate how public schools should operate. There are going to be a LOT of kids whose English is subpar, and at that point they should be taught within their own communities or at least tutored on that specific issue. There will be many people who fail going through school that way, but the ones that emerge tend to be well-rounded, truly bilingual, and a step ahead of their peers. And as for the custard? Again, the owner should be able to install whatever policies he or she wishes, and for whatever reasons. Let's assume the guy really is just the biggest racist ever. The next action shouldn't be to grab a pitchfork and go after him. It should be to shrug my shoulders and say "Okay. So?" and either order some custard or go somewhere else :)

    Then that's not where we're headed because in our future there will be plenty of restraint and lots of morality. There may not be much reason, but you can count on the first two. It's just a matter of WHOSE morality and who is doing the restraining. I know you didn't mean restrain in that sense, but that's what I'm talking about.

    Fascinating. You really don't see the difference? When is the last time you elected a manager of some company to work in your interests? That's why we can criticize a president, you know, because it has a great deal to do with us. The manager of a company, however, has very little to do with us because if we don't like what they're doing, we don't patronize them. You were speaking from a hiring perspective, not an executive one. And I know we both support Ron Paul, but I'm still not arrogant enough to proclaim that things would be better much better than it is now. If you want me to believe all that BS about you being the boss and firing workers who weren't sensitive to your gentle jellybeans, then it would help to have some credibility on the subject. Until then, I'm going to assume that's exactly the reason why you're not a boss. Because a real boss knows that's not how it works. Indeed, and yet you automatically assume that the reporting on the incident was watered down for the sake of the conservative agenda.

    A couple of things to add. "Africa" is a very large place. Yeah, actually, a lot of it was pretty amazing for a very long time. The particular combination of resources and relative isolation of civilizations, though, made it ripe for other groups to come in and exploit those resources. The very first to exploit slaves, gold, and other resources were fellow Africans. From there, it was only a hop skip and jump for people to swoop in and mine, etc.. It doesn't mean that the people coming in were evil, or that the natives were all noble savages, or any similar idiocy. Also, I really don't mind racist as a label. I do think it would get tossed around a little less if it weren't the equivalent of shouting "fire" in a crowded theater. Most people are at least a little racist, and some are incredibly (almost comically) racist. Until they take steps to harm someone or institutionalize their hatred into depriving people of rights (real rights, btw, not "the right to free stuff" type rights), it's fine with me. Lynching someone --- ANYONE --- is pretty godawful. It wouldn't be any prettier if the victim were other-than-black. Calling someone a name, though, just reveals your true colors and the person on the receiving end gets to decide how to react to it. Remember that? When you had to decide whether to fight, walk away, or come up with a witty retort? Before people called the cops because their safe space was violated?

    If there's an issue with foreigners learning English, the implication is that native speakers can at least "reach the peddles" and learn to speak properly. The person I was quoting was applauding the idea that foreigners don't "talk English good" and that it's a major part of the problem. It's merely a pet peeve of mine for some reason. Carry on.

    This "guy" is one, but there will be more like it. How many 60k payouts are you willing to make justifying it as "well, it's only 60k..." There's a deeper problem here and you seem to be the only one missing it.

    And why exactly would that be? Also, another thing: Why in the hell would they do that? Skip the sensational part of the story for the more mundane? You know we're talking about a news agency here, right? "It" has already stated that as one of the main reasons for the payout, which is enough for me to know what kind of thing it is. And while you bring up a good point about public schools, at least with cops you know whose side they're on. In this case, you don't because while there is a possibility that they may have been protecting the harrassers, there is also a very distinct possibility that they like her more than the harrassers. After all, that seems to be the way schools are going these days. Just another brick in the wall, indeed.

    And I'm sure you can tell with your vast management experience. I mean, everybody knows that "if only I was king", everything would just be perfect and I would be the best damn king ever because of X. But hey, I guess you can dream, can't you? I'll bet you've never been the boss of anyone in your life. You seem to be a little confused yourself, also. You don't know whether to call it a "him" or a "he/she" but hey, everyone knows sensitivity is the most important standard by which to judge your employees, regardless of how good they are at doing the damn job. Oh, yeah, because everyone knows articles NEVER exaggerate things, they only ever underplay them. And hey, you know, I'm not going to throw out these imaginary "if I were the boss" scenarios, but sometimes being a dick to a coworker is well-deserved and I think this, er, thing, just proved it by suing over damn pronouns. Anyone who's that thin-skinned has the cuts coming to them. I would avoid hiring anyone like that for that reason, but hey, I guess they can always get a job at buzzfeed or some other crap news joint.

    Probably because Ron Paul learned and shared long ago that if we want to achieve change or win an election, it must be through the two party system. We may not like it, but the Libertarian party won't be winning the White House this year. The article is correct, Trump will beat Hillary and be the next president.

    3. You are free to do so, just as I am free to put you on ignore or laugh at your inability to understand English. That's not bragging. I am just very confident in the fact that my posts follow the rules of the English language in a very coherent manner. Until you start citing real, tangible errors in my grammar or spelling, I tend to think you are simply "annoyed", as it were.
  4. 1. I'm only annoyed, not "butt-hurt," by you being obnoxious to others who do not deserve it.
    2. If you have to brag about how smart you are or your "rank" in society, that's just sad.
    3. I will point out your errors and incoherent rants, try to remember that's what you want.

    Good luck. Good bye. Try to be a better person to others.
  5. You don't have any business being rude and correcting grammar when you make bigger mistakes.

    Perhaps you ought to read back through your posts and, if you are as smart as you think, you'll recognize how incoherent you can be. Sometimes you sound like you're on drugs, so perhaps you're "well-spoken" to your fellow druggies?

    Why you insist that it's right to be rude to someone who rarely posts is beyond me. There's no reason for me to be "butt-hurt?" It's not like you corrected my grammar or typo. Try making sense.

    Can't wait until you're out in the real world and can't figure out why people don't like you, 95% are smarter than you and probably won't hire you--I think that's what it'll take for you to start treating other people decently. If not, hope you're rich.
