rjakobi: It is the constitutional right of every person, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or creed, to be offended by those more ignorant of them. If getting offended by idiots makes you stop everything and whine about how you are unjustly persecuted due to stupid stereotypes, you waste time better used to study why these stereotypes exist in the first place. The strong push for political correctness and anti-bullying legislation are the last gasp of an older generation too ashamed to admit that their faults are just as bad as the establishment that preceded them. You cannot undo centuries of intolerance by simply making it "impolite" to broach subjects of social and international equality. The idiot doesn't care who they offend with their feeble rhetoric. Why should you?


They dont have a constitution in England. One thing that is great about America is that you cant be jailed for offensive speech. Eventhough freedom of speech allows assholes like Westboro Baptist to be vocally nasty and hateful, Id rather put up with their BS than have laws that would have you jailed for saying something offensive on the internet or elsewhere.

Chive is for tools who want an excuse to look at "hot" girls they may know while using the "it's a chive thing" excuse and the attention whores who need attention from every guy they meet.

HST's Dead Carcass: What shocked me was how fast the owner reacted to the sight of a handgun. I was just minding my own business and all of a sudden he's all but throwing a guy out the front door.. Much of what I wrote in the previous post was paraphrased, because it happened so fast.

I really wish this thread had been posted at like midnight on some night I'd been drinking too much, because my first instinct was to just keep quoting anyone else who posted in the thread, and accusing them or labeling them with the most slanderous, disgusting things I could come up with.

walktoanarcade : I think probably the latter as they're practically extinct.

Arcades still exist, they've just either specialized or gone upscale. We've lost the classic "garage packed with standup cabinets" glory-days of the late '80s, but today we have Chuck-E-Cheese and Dave & Busters and the like, just glorified arcades that target particular demographics.


And the guy who kicked me out? He wears a fedora. I think it was meant to be.

Hipsters frequently suck (yeah, I know - I can stop there) at telling a Trilby from a Fedora. I find it deliciously ironic that the one area in which their deliberate-ironic-detachment actually succeeds, they accomplish purely by accident.

thamike: Igor Jakovsky: They dont have a constitution in England.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_of_the_United_Kingdom


From your link:

Unlike many other nations, the UK has no single constitutional document. This is sometimes expressed by stating that it has an uncodified or "unwritten" constitution.[1] Much of the British constitution is embodied in written documents, within statutes, court judgements, works of authority and treaties. The constitution has other unwritten sources, including parliamentary constitutional conventions.[2]

They dont have a single constitutional document. Their rules of governance and procedure come from a lot of different sources. Maybe I should have said they dont have a first amendment to the OP who was talking about an individuals constitutional right to make offensive speech when this article was talking about England.

The choice to empower words to wound yourself is a choice in self failure that brags of insecurity and a total lack of self confidence.

If the Nanny State wanted to get involved and make a difference, they should be looking into the factors that would cause the perceived problem instead of further empowering his anger, hostility and bitterness. Because you know, 6-8 weeks in criminal college will surely make him a newly well adjusted individual with no further seedy contacts or ideas or knowledge of what to do with his angry bitterness while the root cause persists. Too much trouble and too complicated? STFU and get back to real government business and allow society and culture to take care of societal and cultural problems.

Don't feed what you don't want to grow and flourish.

Well, let's go all out offensive, courtesy of Mr Bungle!

I wanna lock Betty Crocker in the kitchen
And knock her upper during supper
Clutter up her butter gutter
Hostess Ding Dong wrapped an eggroll around my wong
While Dolly Madison proceded to ping my pong
Your Milky Way is M'n'M in your britches
And I'll tell you Baby Ruth it looks mighty delicious
Keep blowing my gum, cuz here I come
I'm gonna get you all sticky with my Bubble Yum

Knick knack paddywhack and give your dog a bone, baby

I was givin' some head to some french bread
It was a four course orgy on the spread of my bed
French kissin' french fries in my Fruit of the Looms
I get deeper penetration with a fork and a spoon

I got yogurt meat loaf smeared all over my ass
I stick my weiner in two buns and and then give it the gas
Sour cream from my spleen into Levi jeans
Gonna bust the seams with my refried beans

Ronald McDonald just loves to be fondled
With Big Mac he'll f*ck it like a Chicken McNugget
Colonel Sanders wants to goose Granny's loose caboose
He's gonna give her a boost with that Kentucky fried juice
Sooper doop poop scoop, loop de loop, chicken coop
Shoot some hoop, top sirloin from the groin
Topped with dick cheese, sneeze, wheeze,
From the skeez disease, wooi!

Take a dump, baby, squirt some gravy
Pour some sugar on me, honey, make it brown & runny
Give a little Flavor Flav, back from the grave
Gonna burn some toast, pump some humpin' rump roast

Knick knack paddywhack, jump in the sack, in fact
Jerk the smack and crack Jack from the back
Bananarama or ramabanana
F*ckin' Barry Manilow on the Copa Cabana

Squeeze me macaroni, slop your face with my bologna

You gotta syphon the spinach, you gotta cream the corn
Sperm scrambles the eggs and a meal is born
Cookin' like a beginner, but I'm goin' up in her
I had Fritos for lunch I'm havin' bush for dinner
Chef Boyardee and the Three Muskateers
Shove Charleston Chews in their rears like queers
"Holy moly, guacamole!" said my Chips Ahoy
I'm gonna pinch a ravioli on the Pillsbury dough boy

Knick knack paddywhack and give your dog a boner, baby

We came to pottie...we came to pottie down your throat

There's not too many of those. I'd say that if we're going by the left-right (false) dichotomy, fark - at least the politics tab - is something like 80% left (or liberal or progressive or whatever the fark you like)

Nobody's politics bother me if they're able to articulate their points of view in a cohesive manner. What really gets me is the "hurr durr" reddit-tier babble. Sure, to you (not "you" you, the impersonal you) those herp derp responses may sound like le epic win of Jon Stewart satirical proportions, but in reality it just sounds retarded.

This could never happen here because:

1.  The case at issue is in the UK and they have no freedom of speech in the UK, and

2.  A quick investigation by the police that the typical Farker is way too fat to climb out of his mother's basement to do anything more than pick up another bag of Cheetos from the Wawa.

Not just the liberal boogeyman, but the crafty President being so domineering and controlling that he's shredding the Constitution as we speak and coming for the guns of all Right Wingers, then he'll be placing all the Tea Party members in concentration camps where they'll be re-educated. I mean, look how miserable ACA failed, this dumb President couldn't run a line of credit, and in fact was the cause of the housing crisis, started the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and was actually Jimmy Carter's brother Billy, in disguise the whole time!

This Socialist Muslim Communist Sharia Law Loving President is so inept and devious, he's killing this country through Machiavellian machinations and complete ineptitude while sleeping with Hillary, giving her his demon seed, because he's the Anti-Christ! No God Fearing 'Murican would truly follow this man, but all the Wiccans and witch-crafters cast spells to get him into the office, and this is all true, because according to Numerology, which is a SCIENCE, right up there with Creationism and both should be taught in Texas Schools next year, Bary Insane In The Membrane 0bummer's name equals 666!!!

But, no, this is all totes legit, because it fits the narrative screed of the right wing.

Which policies in particular? I am generally curious, as most the policies and actions have direct emulations of policies and actions of G.W. Not all, they are different in many areas, but I am curious which ones and is there's some cognitive dissonance involved with the policies.

You seem rather intelligent, so I am truly curious.

Yeah, it's harsh stuff. Now you know why the local media isn't reporting this stuff anymore. This has been going on since 2006ish time frame.

They spoke of Rum Bay, that's on Tejon Street. It's party central during the weekends, about a dozen bars with balconies overlooking the street and such. Fort Carson personnel have been banned from Tejon Street area for about 3 years now. Anyone from Fort Carson caught on Tejon Street between certain hours on the weekend are in deep shiat. GI's from Schriever AF, the Air Force Academy and Peterson Field AFB are all still allowed to go, but not Fort Carson.

Fort Carson troops usually end up at Copperhead Road where all the bartenders are women in bikini's.

When people start up about 2nd amendment rights, I point to stuff like this where all the handguns were acquired legally, and the people were all well versed in their use. In fact, they were trained to use firearms, moreso than the average gutbusting NRA weekend warrior, like the tiny dude that walked into the liquor store strapping a handgun.

The Roundheads in the 17th cent. would certainly disagree with you on that, IMHO.
