You used to be able to make fun of gingers without having your life ruined and people would just laugh it off

Stick and stones may break my bones and words will always hurt me

To be fair...

Ambien can mess you up.

And, even worse, it's super unpredictable.

I'm not in favor of anything I see happening at this point because we are already way too far down a very dangerous path...

We're slow walking our way into something that no one but a psychopath could possibly actually want.

Don't think she should be fired , also don't think Kaepernick should be black balled either, viewers should tune in or tune out ,but corporate have the final say in these things bottom line at stake.

Kaepernick also kinda sucks at football... That's the thing with people even bringing up Kaepernick, dude actively made teams play worse just by signing with them.

So in reality it's not even close to the same thing.

(I don't even like football and i know that)

If Kaepernick were demonstrably as good as Aaron Rogers or Tom Brady or Dak Prescott, then we wouldn't still be having this conversation because someone would put up with the drama, but since he's not, he made himself unemployable with his shenanigans.

No one was going to pay for him to basically sit on the bench as backup QB -and- piss off fans at the same time. He did it badly enough when he wasn't on anyone's roster.

He is in the same boat as Micheal Sam - the side-show isn't worth it for the talent level they are getting.

Micheal Vick could kill dogs and still get a spot because he could play well enough.

He's better than most other picks after him, but my point is, the slippery slope , someday a one of my favorite Lib is gonna get fired for saying something outrageous , and I'll feel that loss.

No, he's not. He was good until everyone in the league figured out his one schtick. At that point, he refused to learn how to adapt his game and he got blown up.

Ok I am not defending Roseanne, but she is a comedian and I have heard Bill Maher make comments about people looks many times. Other comedians have done it too, like Chris Rock. People may say to themselves woah that's terrible but kind of funny too. It's what they do and how human nature reacts, honestly I have smiled at all the critical jabs made at Trumps looks because in the moment they are funny.

Does this get better defended if it comes out in a comedy club routine verses a twitter post ?


Target Of Joke

Roaeanne should not have said it I agree, but you know........these are the type of things shared among friends around a campfire after a few beers have been shared and people say what they really think, doesn't make it right or dignified but sometimes mean comments can be funny in the moment.
Just watch in comedy routine and all the people laughing at the jokes.

Still what she said was wrong and mean and should have been kept to herself.

That's more in line of what I'm thinking, would be hard to defend when it came to a lib comic/entertainer , a politician a cop or someone else yes ,but comics get a special pass, kinda like the court
Jester get to troll the king and not lose his head.

Roseanne Barr has a disturbing history of calling black women ‘apes’

Roseanne was altright before there was an altright.

But didn't Kathy Griffin got canned for that tasteless IMO beheaded Trump's head, so maybe at CNN, they are being
consistent, still not good tho.

Roseanne has never been what anyone would call a traditional anything. She's more like a loon or actually a left-leaner than anything.

Did you pay any attention to anything she's ever done aside from recent history? Woman is barking moonbat in too many ways to be labeled alt-right.

I got my nets mixed up, but Joy Reid is the black commentator on TV who has a history of anti-gay tweets tried to excuse it by saying her account was hacked before even more of them were dug up in her history ...

And they brought her on to discuss this Roseanne thing. She's still on TV even with her history of anti-gay comments that are pretty plainly hers.

She let a lot of people down with that one stupid tweet. Her reboot was doing positive things, I thought, and I genuinely enjoyed watching.
