Agreed.

People can't objectively see the bigger issue because it gets turned into a partisan pissing match.

Again.

A bernie supporter? I bet he would have...lol. I won't argue with you, tow truck drivers are right there with lawyers and doctors and fighter pilots as far as I'm concerned with the douche bag level. I just believe in the good ole US of A, not a socialist crap country (yet, thank God), people have the right to refuse service, because they aren't slaves...

Is it in his best interests, maybe not, but definitely within his rights in a free country...

This isn't about partisanship, it's about whether we abide by the principles of liberty and freedom or not.

It's not about being a slave, it's about putting yourself 8n a position where you are offering your skills, then withdrawing them.

Frankly, what kind of man leaves a woman alone on the side of the road? I wouldn't, unless she told me to do one cos she felt threatened by my presence, and I don't even drive a tow truck.

God forbid if the dead ever awakened from their graves.

The Vikings/Domes etc would be terrified of society thinking they'd missed Valhalla and ended up in a much more twisted version of their afterlife.

And also Ethics, and just law.

'Just' as in a law that is just v a law that is unjust, for all the dense folks out there.

For everyone defending this man let me point out something. your rights end where they infringe on anothers rights. SO yeah he has the right to make a threat but in doing so opens himself up for retaliation when said potential victim defends their right to expression.

I agree. She could have posted online too BUT she decided to make it physical. Why is that hard for people to understand? Oh right. Partisan crap.

Most of us aren't defending him.

We're showing how she was *also* wrong, which people who say she was right in her actions erroneous construe as defending *him*.

well, i know im being technical here....but he threatened her computer. Not her.


Actually he threatened the ideal that is Trump. THAT is why there's so much angst here. Logic be damned.


LOL, then there's that.

So, the site this article comes from is: YOUNG CONSERVATIVES.

One sentence in article: The sight of a Trump sticker was enough to send a St. John’s University student into an uncontrollable violent rage.

The writer of this article should be in Drama, not politics.

---------------------------------------

Let me get this straight. A student in the class takes a photo of her laptop with the Trump sticker. Posts it on Twitter and "begs" for retweets - - - claiming he will smash it if he gets 7000.

-------------------------------------

Is that it?




Bolded part above = LMAO

That about sums it up.

Earlier today my cousin posted this to Facebook:

scontent.xx.fbcdn.net...

To which I replied something like, "People on Facebook think "fight" means "argue"....we're screwed"

I tell you this for 2 reasons:

- to the younger generation, what happens in their little microcosm of social media is as real as it gets. And it totally newsworthy, despite common sense
- if their social media account is newsworthy, so is mine. So im fighting fire with fire here.

She wasn't wrong, she reacted to a threatening confrontation with a small amount of force. Something women do rather well. As I said earlier, he wouldn't have made threats against a college linebacker because he's a coward and knew the consequences would have been far worse than a cup of mountain dew over his idiotic head.

Maybe a cultural thing. In the uk left wing meant union members, miners, dockers, steelworkers and railwaymen. Not some ceta males full of hate for those they felt stronger than.

I'm sorry, did you say something?

She was *also* in the wrong because she made it physical. First.

That is the point none of you can understand.

ETA:

Sorry, I'm going to stop feeding the trolls. Or at least mix poison with their food.

This is the reason I wont have a bumper sticker on my car, I don't want someone to key my paint job in some parking lot, just because they don't like my bumper sticker to whom I am supporting for Presidency.

With this new generation of grown ups, they were not taught to respect other peoples properties.

You all know, the self entitled generation.
