It's important to be kind...but don't be a doormat.
I think its more what Texas aspires to be. They are still one more election away from it…maybe two.
This was basically the plot of a MASH episode where Alan Alda did a similar rant against the US Military and America. It’s true that nothing new happens anymore…it’s all derivative repetition.
No…economically subjugate the human race…not destroy it.
I’d agree except a variant of that thinking is why my grandfather died of a heart attack at his desk at 48 years old.
I wasn’t justifying…I was empathizing. Something conservatives should do more of…to prove their claim of following the example of Jesus isn’t a self deception.
My best friend Gary in elementary school had a Dad just like this. I remember my mom would get a call from his mom that Gary’s Dad wasn’t coming, so I could sleepover at his house. His Mom would take us out for Pizza, video arcade, movie or something. After that happened a few times, his Dad stopped even making false promises to come over. It was heartbreaking.
I disagree, but the cartoon is far more clever than what we usually get from a political cartoonist.
You always try to mispresent what other people say. It is a very bad character trait. And since I dislike it when people constantly try to gaslight other people, I am willing to call you out on it. I never said every species was equal. Because obviously each species has advantages and disadvantage in relation to other species. And I will concede that there is significant evidence that mankind is “superior” in its about ability to treat other people and species in a reductive cruel manner. You could be the case subject of any study that was trying to prove that in the affirmative.
I know it doesn’t excuse everything. But, the process can be long and complicated and intimidating and an applicant runs the risk of the answer being “no”. Since American companies like agriculture and manufacturing can hire them without consequences, despite their legal status, people take those short cuts available in order to quickly escape the poverty (and possibly oppression) of their home countries and take those jobs. And when people have children they are particularly impatient about doing whatever they can to protect and care for their children…and therefore even more willing to do whatever is necessary to act in their children’s best interests. So they do have reasons. They just aren’t good reasons from the perspective of well-fed, educated, and privileged people who judge them for acting like desperate humans who in many ways feel they don’t have much to lose and no time to waste.
