Iran and several other nations are thinking about nuking us and along with it the Redskins.......the unstable leader of America is talking about changing the name of Redskin.
He is so not a leader but a traitor in every way.
The Native American Community, via the Oneida tribe from New England has brought law suit against the owners of the Redskins multiple times for maintaining a name that is associated with racism and denegration of their people. If you had an ounce of common sense and decency, you would realize that MOST NFL teams pick a name that isn't inflammatory or carries a historically racist moniker. Of course you would be against it, because after all, you see nothing wrong with denegrating another human being or a group of human beings. You don't see "Washington Jew Boys" as a team name, or " Washington Crackers" as a name, or "Washington RETARDS" as a name, now do you? Why is that, do you suppose? COULD IT POSSIBLY BE THAT IT IS OFFENSIVE?

But, when I awaken to the light of day on the world and get up and go outside with the dog and my first cup of coffee, and listen to birds singing and see the beauty of God's world in which I live, the natural environment I am blessed to enjoy, that's when I am filled with genuine gratitude and emotion. The mirror is but a reflection. We don't require them to validate ourselves you know? Probably not.
All this is why you act like you do on here. Yea, right! You are a good liar then!

I'm not a racist, and I don't like them. That's why I don't go for the shit that's going on today. I didn't in the past, and I'm not about to accept it now just because they are minorities.
LOL

You're in denial and no, I don't think the "Cowboys" will be next.

For somebody who claims to be so smart, I would think you would understand this stuff.
I don't think so. some have low opinions of themselves. These are those who don't aspire. They are those who know their limits as compared to those who know their limits and ignore them.

Who knew that a monster truck could get such good traction merely digging into human bodies?

Watch it lurch forward and dig through the crowd!

Blablabla. Themselves, no, it was their self. What difference did it make heh? Very happy you finally got a decent photo to put on topix that day uh huh? WOwser what a day. Now come back and tell us all just what it was and lie some more. You are so full of BS you show your pitiful life full of misery. It is very hard to witness. You just feel so low and in despair, you just have to tell all about yourself. Lie all about yourself that is. I got your number, so do others. You have shown a very clear visual of your true self.

This is a great view of the how the average far right conservative warps and manipulates information.
No kidding! I actually listened to the Secretary of the Interior who was interviewed on NPR, Day 2 of the shutdown. Prior to this shutdown, he had to make some hard decisions relating to the SEQUESTOR, which included closing some services across the nation in our national parks. His decision to close down the areas around the Jefferson, Lincoln, and mall area of Washington DC had ALOT to do with security, and less to do with inconveniencing visitors. As you all should know, 2 weeks earlier, a shooting happened at the NAvy yard, which has heightened the DC police and security details in that area. The Secretary of the interior explained that on a nearly daily basis, Washigton DC is a target for some sort of terroristic threat,( DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THE PLANE THAT WAS CRASHED INTO THE PENTAGON???) He made the decision to close down areas of the mall, because he simply didn't have enough personnel to keep both tourists safe and buildings safe....
Idiots from the far right should be congratulating him on saving MILLIONS of taxpaying dollars. Instead, they are whining that places are now closed. Well, send John Boehner a box of pacifiers! Wasn't it the TEA BAGGERS who wanted government dismantled?
Well, great! lets just begin with closing the parks, historical monuments, etc. After all, they are just "fluff" anyway, and we don't really NEED this part of our government....right???
How hypocritical of the far right wing to belly ache when services they whined about are now closed.....what did they think they were asking for....temporary closure of the rest rooms???
Ted Cruz and his ilk are such ninnyhammers, they wouldn't know which end of a pencil to use if someone didn't show them. I am so ashamed of their behavior in our Congress. They show the world what complete idiots they are.
They got what they wanted, and now they are throwing a tantrum.
How completely professional of them!
They are infantile and impotent, and most are illiterate. Currently, the war memorial is open....with a skeleton crew of security....let's hope some bi-polar off his meds doesn't decide to open up on all who are visiting right now....
It isn't like the Secretary wasn't thinking about all that when he made his decision.....and BTW, he didn't have to ask Obama for permission.

The clues themselves are riddles in the form of rhyme

"What we're trying to do is to get students to engage in the concept of sustainability, and we're looking to put a little fun in it as well," says Martin. "If we can get them into businesses that are doing well by doing good, by taking a stand in their business model, I think that's a step in the right direction."

Yes, some do have low opinion of themselves but do those people come out and say that about themselves here? No. Instead you see it in the way they treat others. In the lows they are willing to go to hurt others, like the troll "Patrick" and all who have supported it. Like Gr, who has to constantly remind people that he is above them in stature and class. These are telltale signs that these people are not who they claim to be.

On the internet there are only the limits of imagination. It's great to be imaginative and creative but if you use that imagination to deceive others about who and what you are, what you believe, etc etc, is it honorable? I don't think so.

I always saw you as fair minded, but FB, your animosity to Hispanic illegals has just grown over time. You are so angry that I wonder if you simply don't see yourself and the hostility that you direct toward Hispanics. I realize full well that they comprise the huge majority of those who are illegally present in L.A., but they're just human beings, and they wouldn't be there if government had not made life so "pleasant" for them for decades and businesses weren't willingly employing them. We both know that this is true.

You can't tell from looking who is illegal and who is not. You can't seriously believe that the "anchor brats" as you call them are going anywhere when you know that NONE of those liars who were elected saying they were going to change the Fourteenth Amendment made even one little bit of effort to do what they said they'd do? Wasn't that a BIG part of the platform the Tea Party Republican candidates ran on? They lied, didn't they? "No new taxes" simply meant that income and wage disparity would continue to grow, and wealth would be redistributed to the top. By gawd, we have absolute proof of that now.

We must stop being distracted and refocus on what is good for Americans. If you turn off millions of Hispanic Americans, they'll simply embrace illegals in reaction to the Xenophobia and prejudice, and they have done exactly that owing to same. We are being divided by race and ethnicity and religion and minority status in every way possible - to our own detriment. The plutocrat elites are winning - truly truly harming our ability to work in unity to effect change, and we absolutely need to make some changes. In what way are Republican policies inclusive for those who are not in the top earner categories? The Americans they serve and represent are a small group of financially well-off plutocrats.

We can only gain any ground when we support our fellow Americans instead of describing them as users and losers and lazy louts, etc. I see poor people struggling to make life better. Sometimes they do. More often than not, opportunity is denied them, and birth station is what defines you for life. That is just not America.
