Perhaps I am a dreamer, of sorts, to believe that one day we will get an honest, coherent discussion out of the person in question.

Also, it's fun to get down in the mud once in a while to remind myself that I am an imperfect human.

As you like. Just remember it's his mud hole.

So awesome being here in the front of the line...


I like to take advantage of my genetic boon by going on the express lane of the supermarket with 11 items. Yeah, I am that guy.

I prefer to use it in non-western countries to generate the most ire.

I'm not going to argue the White Male privilege.

It is what it is.


Yeah, a goddamned pipe dream that doesn't exist...

Nah-ah. This store I passed by yesterday had a sign that said, 'Restrooms are for customers only'. Well, I just White Previldged myself in there and took a whiz anyway.

Next time I might even make it to the (white) men's room.

You must be searching for an excuse to explain personal deficiencies...

Seriously, the only thing white males are first in line for is the bill, the blame, and the target of butthurt over the flounderings of others (which we had absolutely nothing to do with.) But yeah, let's go ahead and blame my whiteness and my manhood (don't forget about that, please) for nature's millions of year's worth of history irrationally rewarding personal responsibility.

:rolleyes:

Well, you know, your maleness (only your white maleness, just to be clear) affords you the privilege to take a piss quickly and efficiently, draining your bladder before the cops even have a chance to kick down the restroom door and oppress you. If you had to go through the time consuming process of squatting, you'd have found yourself on the other end of the line.

I find it ironic that the Right keeps claiming the Left wants to control people.

Here's your mirror.


As someone who is firmly in the middle it became readily apparent to me that both sides wish to impose their will on others. They are two sides of the same coin.



I don't see that at all.

What the Left forces - - is Equality - - and that everyone gets a chance.

Totally not the same thing.


They do not force equality, they force their version of equality.

If there were equality, everyone would be equal.

Instead some are more equal.

Affirmative action etc...

That is not equality, that is stacking the deck.


You have to include the second half - - which is why I included it.

". . . that everyone gets a chance".

Affirmation action gives opportunity - - not Equality.


No it strips opportunity, by forcing racially motivated quotas. So a minority even though less qualified, maybe even unable to perform the job, gets it instead of a qualified person of the " wrong" race.

There are X amount of opportunities in the country, if you force some to be given based solely on race, they must be stripped from deserving majority citizens based on their race.

This is the exact opposite of equality.

You see, equality means we are all treated equally.

That means nobody gets pandered to, that means we all have the same rights and privileges.



Only if society treats you equally. It doesn't.

Just being born a white male puts you at the front of the line - - without any other causation.

Just a fact.





Bull flunking shiite!!!

I am a white male, I have never been in any trouble, I went to college, I have a great work history, I never call in, I work my butt off every single day.

I am poor, I don't own anything, and I don't qualify for a single social program.

How am I out in front of anyone?

That is pure race baiting idiot rhetoric of the trash can variety.

If I was a Mexican I could work where I work, make what I make , pay no taxes on my wages, and get full welfare.

Who is in front of who?

Oh but I am white right, like that is some kind of prize?

It is people like you that are the true racists, you place white people above other races, by implying they can't compete in equal ground against white people.

Here is another golden oldie.



The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.


Aristotle


Equal Opportunity is not making an unequal thing equal.



Equal opportunity, is not forcing businesses to hire unqualified people because of their race.

That is unequal.

It imposes a bias towards a minority, and against a majority, based solely on race, instead of qualifications.

That is as unequal as it gets.

Made up hogwash is what it is, reality is what it isn't.

I used it to hit the lotto!

I got my money back on a scratch off, if that isn't proof positive of my privilege I don't know what is.

It's true fortifications and walls don't stop INVADING armies. they make strategic and tactical plans to get by it.

If illegal immigrants are an invading army then we would declare war. They are just people. They are not going to run organized manuevers to bypass and blow holes into the wall with explosives.

Do I really need to post the 100's of government buildings with fence around them? And many of them gasp...have ID checkpoints.

Fences create a detterent making only the most daring to attempt to get by it. That is the point of a fence, a detterent. Increasing the difficulty and risk decreases the people who will try.

Police patrols do not stop crime but they do act as a deterrent. speed traps do not catch that many people but they act as a deterrent. the traps keeps keep overall speeds down as there is always the risk an LEO is right around the corner.

It is not about affirmative action. Which I did not bring up.

Your home also requires maintenence and upkeep.

Your possessions certainly do posses you.

Agreed. The Reagan administration might have pushed hard in the 80's ... and Nixon and others as well beforehand, but you didn't see any Democrats decrying the "War on Drugs" at any of those points in history.

"Rights" are nothing more than abstract "rules" created by man, for man. No one has any "rights" beyond those that we choose to identify and give ourselves.

I can claim I have all kinds of rights, but unless the society at-large agrees that I have them, they don't mean anything to anyone else by me.
