Please look through all of my posts and copy/paste my threat to foe you. You're not going to find it. Additionally, interstorm can only see you if I reply to you. Anything else you'd like to add?

The difference between you and I, Mr. Arts, is that you ridicule the person, I ridicule movement. I do not engage such people.

...you do understand that lumping all liberals together and then ridiculing them is worse than ridiculing one person right? Like, you're generalizing, intentionally being ignorant of their differences, and then definiting them all by the worst actions of whichever group offends you.

Am I ridiculing you or patiently correcting you? You just posted an article that said "Democrats said x" and then quoted a tweet where they definitely, most clearly, did not say "x." This is flagrantly misleading post #1,938 from you. What sort of temperament do you think you deserve exactly?

"The Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) will no longer use the term "master" to describe the primary bedroom of a home on their housing listings. The term "master" has roots in slavery, and HAR says the topic of removing it from realty terminology has been debated for years."

Now, the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) platform that HAR uses for listings, will use "primary bedroom" and "primary bath," HAR said in a statement to CBS News. The association noted that some members viewed the word "master" as sexist others viewed it as racist."

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/realtors-m ... rminology/

Racist? Sexist? Worthy of ridicule? You be the judge.

Edit: According to my son the karate expert, master is term in karate to denote level of skill and relationship.

Hump. If you can’t figure this out I feel super bad for you man. The idea that you’re posting this stuff while there are legitimate grounds to impeach the attorney general is a really bad look. At bare minimum it requires careful inspection. Please stop embarrassing yourself and be a reasonable, rational, productive conservative.

I think that’s (checks notes) six different conspiracy theories in two months! Do you have a personal record you’re trying to shatter or just spitballin’?

"NASCAR's Corey LaJoie to drive 'Trump 2020' car at Sunday's Brickyard 400"

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2020/ ... p-2020-car

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was scheduled to utter the words: "Gentlemen, start your engines", but was scratched as he struggled to remember the words. To his credit, he'd been practicing the phrase for weeks in his basement bunker, unfortunately to no avail.

Did you do all of the writing for your high school yearbook Hump? What a polished pen you wield.

You um, seem to want a certain 77 year old presidential hopeful to leave his house in the middle of a global pandemic with soaring case numbers. Why is that?

How’s the whole pandemic thing going by the way? I heard it was going to go away by Easter so long as we do what Trump says instead of the infectious disease experts. I mean, what do they know really!? It’s not like other countries have had success following their advice, those fools! When I think “Keep America Great!” I like to imagine a needlessly neutered American economy led by an admin that’s up to its ears in lawsuits and scandal, incapable of getting out of its own way. It’s a high bar to maintain, but if anyone can do it, it’s certainly Trump. Can you imagine if HE hid in a bunker?! Ha. Never gonna happen.

"Universities Sowing The Seeds Of Their Own Obsolescence" (Victor Davis Hanson)

https://dailycaller.com/2020/07/02/vict ... olescence/

"Universities are certainly teaching our youth to be confident, loud and self-righteous. But the media blitz during these last several weeks of protests, riots and looting also revealed a generation that is poorly educated and yet petulant and self-assured without justification."

Some might say 5% right, 100% arrogant. Universities digging their own grave. Can't happen soon enough. IMO, Hanson is probably the most astute writer in the country at the moment.

Aaaah, my daily Humperdink troll post. Now just waiting for the inevitable blackarts retort which will be hilarious and so serious (yet ought to be a spoof).

It has - but when one side doesn't want to engage a real discussion with the other and talk in good faith, I think it inevitably ends here. For his part, BlackArts has been calmly rebutting Humperdink's "daily troll posts" (why, I don't know), so I have a problem putting blame on him for the mockery this is (other than, of course, expecting or hoping Humperdink will change).

All that aside - if I remember correctly you said you lived in Texas. I also think you were taking a smart "we'll see" approach (not being a denier, not being an alarmist). I sincerely hope you're doing well down there and any family or friends you have are also safe and healthy.

Yes, in Texas and they did make it mandatory to wear mask (though with open ended exemptions). We are doing well down here, thank you. Hope you and your family is fine.

Absolutely incredible. You can't stay on topic for more than one post or follow a line of logic over a span of 24 hours while discussing trash politics on a hockey message board with two other posters, yet you'll happily trash the university system that attracts the most intelligent people in the world to come to America for tech/science/research/medicine/arts/law to file patents, start companies, discover the cure for cancer etc. Maybe you should look elsewhere Hump, just sayin.

If I sit back in my chair and ponder what's wrong with America at large, it's without question that universities teach social science and philosophy. I mean, what good ever came from those subjects? What a liberal agenda they must have! Weber? King? Socrates? Liberal hacks! Let's burn the books and Make America Great Again! America First!

And yes, the most astute writer in the country thinks that universities should teach high-school history. No one astutes more than this astuter! You have bizarre metrics Hump. He not only thinks that liberals want socialism, but he wails about universities being capitalists! What an astutist! He cites student debt as contributing to the George Floyd protests... I almost spit out my coffee. Do you read this stuff before you post it? Of course you don't. Why do I even ask.

What you said the author said ^^^^^^^^^.

What the writer actually said: "When mobs tore down a statue of Ulysses S. Grant and defaced a monument to African American veterans of the Civil War, many people wondered whether the protesters had ever learned anything in high school or college.

Did any of these iconoclasts know the difference between Grant and Robert E. Lee? Could they recognize the name “Gettysburg”? Could they even identify the decade in which the Civil War was fought?"

Some might say you don't know what you are talking about. And they would be right! To paraphrase you: "Do you read this stuff before you respond to it?".
