The end is near, is it worth the wait?
I said “get off” it’s my turn to ride on the horsey!
Now if this was Anhk-Morpork, the coppers would know their location by the cobbles of the street.
If residents of New York are called New Yorkers, what would you call the residents of Gnawbone and French Lick Indiana Of course years ago the signs for the local Interstate needed replaced frequently as they were often stolen; perhaps the most suggestive highway name of all I-69.
That may be a bit extreme-I prefer the slow drip process where change occurs gradually through enlightenment; i.e. I think I am less racist than my father and his brother and significantly less racist than my grandfather. A cultural change of this magnitude may not happen overnight but instead results from a shift in what is normative for overall society. While the concept of isolation from negative influences as a solution to enlightenment sounds tempting, I think that in actual practice if would not succeed as well as would be desired. I think William Golding (Lord of the Flies) and George Orwell (Animal Farm) provide good examples of human nature at work-there will always be those who believe they are superior to everyone else as a natural right instead of an earned privilege. I believe that most overt racists tend to believe they are below their owed station in life as a result of others actions instead of their own ineptitude, laziness, or moral bankruptcy. A more dangerous form of racism is the covert type which proclaims a commitment to the ideals of equality while their actions, sometimes subconsciously, are racist. The most insidious and probably the hardest form of racism to address is that based on social class, by that I mean against individuals and groups above or below a socioeconomic group. For example white racism as exemplified by labeling people as “trailer trash”, “deplorables”, or being “from the ’hood”. For the record, I am a 65 year old white male RN with 45 years of practice caring for a multitude of cultural and faith belief populations. By the way, thank you Tauhid for providing a forum that will hopefully produce some meaningful dialogue instead of diatribes and personal attacks on others perspectives.
or "No, I just faked that on my CV to pad it up a little.
Surprisingly enough, I looked in the local paper and they did not bowdlerize the word-have to see how many neo-puritans get their knickers in a twist and write to the editor to complain.
At least that was better than Diswon and Datwon.
Hell is in Michigan
Thought of and rejected that hypothesis.
