You and people like you are everything that's wrong with the world. I hope that people like you die out, and soon.




You want people to die because they express a different opinion?

Its looking more and more Orwellian each day.

If it weren't for the myriad examples of the contemporary use of newspeak and doublethink, which seem to be central to subjugating cognitive liberty, also a parallel shared with Orwell's universe when O'Brien explains to Winston how The Party maintains control.

No, I want them to become extinct.

I think this applies to the "new generations" of mindless idiots who occupy this planet:
"it didn't require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn't earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don't take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could"

Yep, and you can't even have a rational discussion with any of the ones wrapped up in it because they are neck deep emotionally invested in it.

We were talking with my old college pal whose daughter is that generation, and that subject of the LGBT+Whatever Other Letters crowd came, specifically trans. It's a subject near and dear to me as a former high level athlete and woman who now sees these female impersonators coming into my arena and taking genuine competitive opportunities from actual women. I just started to say that no matter what you do to yourself you are always biologically female or male -- that won't change -- as my friend is a highly educated microbiologist and understand perfectly what I'm on about and *her daughter* got immediately defensive.

"Don't you say anything about my friends!"

As though I knew a thing about her friends, their orientations or identities or cared one way or the other ...

I was having a more or less dry discussion with her mother on an intellectual level about an issue that concerned me, but it was intellectually morphed into a personal attack on people I knew nothing at all about.

That's why no one can have a rational discussion about any of it, and that's how this generation has been taught to think of it.

"Don't you say anything about my friends!"


Or, "Don't say anything about my children!"

Tried to have a conversation with my Brother about some concerns about my nephew, and it did not go over too well. The immediate defense response makes it impossible to deal with any problem, when feelings of guilt, misplaced loyalty, and the desire to defend is greater than the problem at hand.

I hadn't and wasn't even going to say anything negative about transgenderism itself, only about the idea that it was fair to allow them to compete like that because I don't think it's fair.

Whatever my personal feelings about transgenderism, people are free to do to themselves what they feel they must to be happy in life. It's not my place to stop them.

Don't be ridiculous. If people like me did not exist, you chumps would be eating each-others faces because the wooden totem told you to do it. Should you be so lucky to have somebody like even grace this thread, or even bother to respond at all.

Now! Return to your daily scheduled programing. And try not to scream the sky is falling every time somebody utters and rebrand's a and rehashes yet another old tired ism.

Do republicans do anything except whine these days? Everything is everybody else's fault. Blame the youth, misrepresent atheism, lie about it. It's the norm. Victim playing all day LOL.


Please point out the lies.


Too many to list them all. You automatically associated nihilism with millennials and people who agree with democratic socialism (which isn't economic socialism). Everything you said was pandering to fear and silly buzz words and associations that have no actual associations. You are assuming cetain things are negative and lumping an entire generation in that group when that's pure hornswaggle. You sound like an angry old man. Sorry, but old farts have always hated kids. This is nothing new, it was happening in the 20s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, etc etc. It still happens today. Old people hate change and blame the youth for all problems.

Break it down and prove me wrong with your own sources or shut it.

Nothing you said is accurate and literally everything I said I sourced.

You've had plenty of time between my reply to you and this one to figure out what I lied about.
