The question is, what is the fear of conservative free speech, that's causing all this brand new censorship?

The reason is that the continued total disconnection with reality that is the current so called "Conservative" speech is simply continued lies and hate speech.

It is not being censored and of course were any of today's so called "Conservatives" honest they would admit that.

But they are NOT honest.

Just as Trump has a right to only allow member to play golf at his clubs, the owners of other businesses have the right to only allow honest people to post on their sites.

Their goals for America scare the living shit out of me. Those assholes are passing laws making it legal to run down protesters with a motorized vehicle, for fuck's sake!

Not all protesters, just the illegal protesters; you know, anti-fascists and liberals and the educated and people of color and furnners and immigrants and asians, transexuals and gays and democrats and terrorists.

Today's US Conservatives are also the ones who deny Jesus teachings and are directly opposed to everything Jesus taught.

The bottom line is that giving and financial commitment should ALWAYS be voluntary and NEVER mandatory. And this is where liberal policies fail.

You keep posting really stupid stuff Phat.

Where does the money to pay for public schools, roads, police, fire, street lights, sidewalks, Social Security, Unemployment Compensation and the military budget come from?

The problem comes when one political ideology decides on some ludicrous thing such as reparations and then adds that to the budget.

Why are reparations ludicrous and where in the budget are they listed?

Re: The New Boss?
And in fact looking at the natural world we do find that sex is quite often fluid.

The temperature of the alligator nest determining the sex of the chicks or the fish that change sex in both directions or the things that are simultaneous hermaphrodites or the critters that are gender neutral, neither male or female.

Not only are sex and gender two separate things but both are actually quite fluid.

Ben Shapiro is simply another carny barker.

Phat, read the Bible at least once. You might even learn something.
Phat, you are simply a ****; an utter **** by choice and will.

What was done with the fish at the beach?

What was done with the leftovers?

What was done with the bread?

What was done with the leftovers?

Who said that the proper course what to put aside surpluses to give to those who suffer during hard times?

Who said that we need to build the storage facilities and to harvest and to store the surplus and to distribute it where needed?

Who said that gleaning must be allowed?

Read what is said consistently throughout the Bible.

Phat is just a classic example of the Christian Cult of *********, particularly when it comes to the subject of Christianity. Frankly he is both the prototypical Ugly American and Christianity at its worst.

Phat writes:

My problem with BLM is that they take it upon themselves to rectify moral issues by targeting an entire group--white people. So why don't I trust "them"?

Actually Phat, it was not all white people that were targeted but all of the violent white people that were and have been for many decades targeting black people. It was the white cops and white justice system and the white voters and supporters of the system that has created jails filled with black folk and more black folk arrested and more black folk shot and more black kids being failed in schools and more black folk being stopped and questioned and the whole WHITE establishment that not just allowed all that but refused to honestly address the root causes or mitigate the effects of those root causes.

And Phat, THAT MEANS YOU!

Re: Darker Future For USA
Do you know what the word reparations even means Phat.

Are you a Christian?

Do you know the Christian rite of confession and absolution?

Phat writes:

I am not a racist. I am interested only in issues of fairness (particularly pertaining to Phat).

And there we have it.

Not only have you never addressed the issue you continually seem to support the very acts and root causes that created the situation.

It's NOT all about you Phat and YOU seem to find it acceptable that others suffer as long as it doesn't bother your lifestyle.

This is reality Phat; the white cops and white justice system and the white voters and supporters of the system that has created jails filled with black folk and more black folk arrested and more black folk shot and more black kids being failed in schools and more black folk being stopped and questioned and the whole WHITE establishment that not just allowed all that but refused to honestly address the root causes or mitigate the effects of those root causes and just like you is still simply denying that the situation even exists.

Reparation means fixing the laws that create disparity, minimizing the gap between rich and poor, get the folk in jail for silly shit like the stupid war on drugs out of jail, changing the hiring practices from seniority to merit based, making hiring colorblind, moving away from mega schools to smaller neighborhood based schools, getting the grandparents and aunts and uncles directly involved in the daily education, changing police training away from stop and arrest to aid and support...

Reparation means fixing the shit.

He will let his hair grow and then grasp the chains and pull the whole structure down.

Once the shelves are empty and the airplanes just sitting on the tarmac with truckers simply siphoning the diesel fuel and hoping to have enough to get through the winter and most stores burned and gutted things will quiet down and he will have shown them that they can't make Phat pay reparations.

What types of jobs are there for a grocery checker in post apocalyptic America?

Re: Wannabe Conservative Thinkers
If we had been honest and abided by the free elections held in Vietnam and cooperated with Ho tens of thousands of lives would have been saved, Vietnam would have prospered and become the major trading partner it is today decades earlier.

Re: Wannabe Conservative Thinkers
The big takeaway is that had we cooperated with Castro back in the late 50s and Ho around the same time the benefits in terms of lives saved and suffering averted would have been even greater.

And imagine what it would have been like if we as defenders of democracy had accepted the results of the free elections in Iran instead of putting a puppet Shah in place or accepted the free elections in Nicaragua or Brazil or ...

Re: Wannabe Conservative Thinkers
If we had diverted only a small percentage of what we spent in utterly stupid wars since WWII (including the stupid War on Drugs and War on Terror) into productive foreign aid; roads, health care, infrastructure; we and the whole world would have benefited.
