I got nothing to come close to that. Which means that there are going to be some folks treading reaaaal close to racist tirades just champing at the bit to comment, and trying to figure out how to attack a guy who actually DID spend time in an Internment camp, and an American citizen no less.

Crybabies: stop trying to claim oppression when you're inconvenienced or told, "Don't drink the bleach."

No, you're thinking of the guy who starred in The Breakfast Club, Repo Man, and Young Guns 1 & 2.

Masks are stupid. But I wear one anyways on the off chance they aren't.

Hurting those people was a good thing. Making them wear a mask? Unthinkable.

No he isn't. He just a guy who once had a side role in a cool TV series decades ago and now say "Oh my" from time-to-time. That's it.

farkin, Gary Coleman's "What'chu talkin' 'bout" was 100x better than this dude's "oh my" lame ass line, and Gary Coleman isn't anywhere near close to being a national treasure.

It really worries me to know that those facilities are still as crowded, only we don't see it.

Takei was in an internment camp? He's never mentioned it before

I did a Costco run on Friday; once inside you can take off your mask.  The only people walking around bare-faced are older white guys, with big goddamn smug smiles on their faces.  COVID do your thing.

It's only for 2 weeks, I mean 8 weeks, I mean 19 years and counting.  The restrictions that seem to be ever increasing will be eased once the world becomes safe again.  The best way to get those restrictions lifted eventually is to obey them and quit complaining.

Guess you never saw the special guest appearance where Takei chides Coleman for being a one-dimensional child actor who will never achieve any lasting fame beyond a mere catchphrase.  Mind you that this wasn't part of the show, but it was so savage that the showrunners decided to make it an episode.

In retrospect, it was kind of cruel and wrong, you can tell this is the moment that Coleman's life fell apart, the studio audience is just howling with laughter as Takei eviscerates the little shiat, but I mean, this was the 1980s, it was a different time, child abuse was still considered to be funny.

I mean, it still kind of is, but that may just be the Republican in me talking.

From his appearance in Heroes.

That's a weak argument... On a lot of levels.

First, he didn't choose to spend his childhood there. Saying is didn't do it for X makes no sense. He was forced to do it.

Second, implying that some possible form of oppression isn't real oppression because it isn't as extreme as the oppression you faced is stupid.

If I were gang-rapped I wouldn't go around telling victims of non gang rape that their situation doesn't matter because it isn't as bad as mine.

If you don't believe being forced to wear a mask in public is oppression, argue that point in a way that supports your point. Don't just say it doesn't compare to something worse.

I'm going to trick your coach into running a poor defensive scheme in which you will be standing under the basket and then I am going to dunk on you and everyone you care about.

We talkin East coast or West coast?

West coast is a no brainer but if you throw Tupac over on the East it makes it a little more difficult.  Why is he considered a West coast rapper?  He's from New York.

Also the crap you wrote was really stupid.

Remember that to Trumpists, the only real Americans are themselves and, if they are feeling especially generous, their household.
