The spitter
« on: June 28, 2019, 09:54:07 AM »
What are we coming to as a nation? Spitting on the son of the President of the United States because you don't like the President? How is this even something a person could consider doing?

I was watching the news the other night and the reporter was doing interviews outside of the restaurant (a fancy one, in the Alinea family). Most people condemned the action, but there was this one chick who said "good for her" or some such. Really? Good for her?!?

And then some assclown started a go fund me page for the spitter, since she was suspended from work (will be fired, soon, no doubt). It got up to almost $6K before it was shut down. Who are these donors? Really??

What the hell is wrong with these people? You just don't do this. I don't care what "side" you are on - doesn't matter. 

You. Don't. Do. This.

Civility matters. On both "sides".

Signed,

The Middle Man.

A fair number of folks, as you know, remain absolutely incensed over the outcome of the election to the point they engage in illogical behaviors for illogical reasons.  It's emotional for them at a deep level and they respond emotionally.

The irony is that their actions offend most guys in the middle who might find some reason to support them in some cases.

There is no middle ground.  We are in a war, and sometimes it is even getting violent.  Time to figure that out.

I'd like to think we can come together at some point, but man, the vitriol (on both "sides", far left and right) is sickening to me. We need to overcome it all.

There is PLENTY of MIDDLE GROUND in the US.

The hysterical freaks on the far far right and far far left represent very few of us.  We have some here of course with their vile nonsense about war and unrest and how MOOSLIMS are going to kill us all.

Fortunately, the freaks are LOUD and NOISY but few in number and have no real impact in the real world beyond making their "side" look ridiculous and hysterical.

And from John Kass:


https://www.chicagotribune.com/columns/john-kass/ct-eric-trump-spitting-waitress-kass-20190628-lw7ik3twa5cbpdurqski2byhjy-story.html



I liked this line:

"Eric Trump decided not to press charges, and that’s really too bad, because if charges were filed, it would be tossed to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. She’s already screwed up the Jussie Smollett business. I’d just love to see how she’d screw up the case of the spitting waitress.

You just know she would."

Not going to happen Badger.   We have way too much "diversity" and multiculturalism now and power hungry people who know exactly how to exploit it.  This is that fundamental change that Obama talked about.  We are no longer united by a similar culture and the people who hate the country are determined to recreate it in their image and they are well on the way.  Freedom has never been the norm throughout human history and what we had here, which was unique, we pissed away through negligence and being led by fools.

The screechers around here who panic over minor things and generate drama over trivial stuff are living in some weird delusional echo chamber.

I know plenty of liberals, and conservatives, and they want the same basic things, usually with different means, but most can talk about it rationally.

This Board is by no means some kind of reflection of real America today.  We have problems for sure, but we're not somehow in this massively divided extremist state some here claim.  It's ridiculous, but they live in some isolated world with little contact with real diverse sets of people.

They also pretend to know all about Europe and Sweden and San Francisco but have never been in most cases.

And it is a spiritual war, which is a concept we can't/won't grapple with.  Logic, civility, decency... all out the window.

True.  The degradation of society is overplayed with panic and drama.

But it still exists.  Remind me, how many genders have we decided there are now?  And how did "God" ever get put on our money in the first place?

You live in a cocoon dude.

He thinks the opposition is the liberal elitists he drinks wine and goes to garden parties with.
