So the only way to get gun control from these sociopath is... make it affect them personally.

I'm not so sure about that.

Congressional Republican baseball practice shooting didn't make a change.
Parents of Parkland victims are still pro-gun/anti-gun control.

These are some of the most worthless people on the planet, and it should be legal to beat them with bamboo canes every time they have this sort of realization. If you're going to be an asshole, be an asshole. Commit to it. Don't be the sort of coward who cravenly embraces what you opposed just because you're too chicken shiat to deal with the actual consequences of that thing when it affects you. Assholes.

Yeah, if they were capable of empathy in the abstract, they wouldn't have been conservatives to begin with.

I've always maintained that the surest way to enact meaningful gun laws is for GOP members of Congress to have their family members shot and killed. The more that are shot the faster the laws get passed.

I read an article a few years back about a young child who was shot and killed when they found a gun laying around on a visit to their grandparents. And this child's grieving mother said that they grew up around guns and they weren't going to change a thing. That it was a tragedy, but it's not the gun's fault (paraphrasing). I was blown away (figuratively). Guns are like a religion to these people. No matter how many people die, even if it's people they love, guns need to be protected.

Isn't that the guy that had to help O'Reilly get all the falafel out of his ass?

I'm currently out on 4 weeks paternity. It's nice. I might pad it with another week of PTO.
 
2021-04-13 10:08:14 AM  
Geez... he breeded? That sucks.
 
2021-04-13 10:08:30 AM  
He's just wanting to make sure he gets more paternity when the next wife he gets after he cheats on and then dumps his current wife (again) has a kid:

This guy is the biggest piece of sh*t.

I'll never forgive him for that jaw-droppingly awful Chinatown piece he did for O'Reilly.

I just don't get it.  My dad had a shotgun, he let me shoot off a CO2 BB gun once, I wasn't really interested.

Should I get a real gun, is it like a "losing your virginity" moment?  Like OK, now I get it.

I did 6 weeks and padded it with PTO. It was necessary and I felt guilty going back to work since the kiddo hadn't gotten into a regular sleep cycle yet. My wife had to deal with him alone for another month or two. It was tough enough tag-teaming it.

I say we force feed them birth control pills and leafy greens, shove packs of lit cigarettes in their faces, lower their platelets and jab them with 10x the J&J vaccine.

Having Watters and Gutfeld on the screen at the same time was a little too much comedy for my system to handle.  How am I supposed to drive to work with this busted gut?

I'm lucky to work for a company that offers parental leave. The sad part of it was, we had to save back as the SO didn't get paid maternity leave with her employer but I got two weeks paid with mine.

Some stuff just needs fixed and mandated across the board.

Its as if people can't comprehend that their existing beliefs and ideals are wrong.


I recently had a discussion with a coworker regarding the area I live in.   He commented how he loves the beautiful old houses.   He also stated that he didn't understand the large number of Biden signs on lawns during the run up to the election.

I told him it's probably because of the high concentration of highly educated professionals;  doctors, lawyers and college professors that live in the area.

"But that's why I don't get it!"


So close.

I didn't watch the video either but he's a conservative so it's probably something like "It's new, the founding father did not have paternity leaves, it's not in the constitution, it's not in the bible."

Well, he's pro-paternity for himself, anyway - doesn't mean he would support requiring companies to offer it, or federal funding for it.  "I must be pro-family because I wanted to take paternity leave"
Kind of like the reasoning that you can't be racist if you have a black friend/acquaintance/person you hired.
Or that you can't be sexist because of all the women you didn't harass and/or molest.

What's the big ruse? that a baby exists? It's like the birds-aren't-real conspiracy theory except with babies?

Even then, they'd pick the gun's rights.  You could play this this clip of St. Ronnie, and they'd still pick the gun's rights.

My wife gots 12 (16?) weeks paid (basically a semester).

I got 2.  And I thought that was exceptional, since up until a couple of years ago, I wouldn't have received any.   I took 2 weeks of vacation to make it a solid month before I had to go back to work.  Still not enough.  Especially with twins, and their 2 year old big sister to take care of.

"'Now I am pro-paternity,' Jesse Watters says...'I wish I could take six weeks.'"

Don't worry, though: he's still anti-paternity for everyone else. Especially the poors.
 
2021-04-13 10:26:04 AM  
Okay, my complaint isn't all that important in the scheme of things, but -- "pro-paternity"? That phrase should mean 'in favor of men producing children', not 'in favor of men getting a period of leave from work after the birth of a child'.

It bugs me a little how lots of Repubs talk, like this instance or like when f'ing Kudlow used to invent words like "bi-lats" during the previous guy's administration. I've noticed this in other contexts in real life, too, whenever some group decides to prop themselves up as some sort of socially prominent cool kids, they love inventing their own lingo.

That would only make them anti-bamboo.

Although, that isn't a bad thing. The stuff is a nuisance.

The threat of it effecting them is enough

Sexist bs.   Paternity should be equal to maternity in length.

My cousin's husband posted on Facebook that even if he were murdered by gun he wouldn't want any restrictions.  It was just the price he was willing to pay for the greatest of all amendments.

I wonder if he would still feel that way if he survived an attack and spent the rest of his life as a quadriplegic.

I said this in another thread about Gutfeld: if I didn't already know he had been a stand-up comedian, there's no way that I'd know that Gutfeld was supposed to be a "comedian" of any kind.  He just does the same Angry Yelling White Guy act as anyone else on that channel.  There's nothing any more "comedic" about the way he does it, at least on shows like this.

It's the guy who stalked a female reporter on her vacation for O'Reilly because O'Reilly said she had said 'some bad shiat'
Then when someone approached Watters years later to apologize to her for stalki g he stole the dude's phone and complained that he was harassed at a party


So yes he cares when it effects him but he doesn't carry that through and care when similar or actually worse things happen to people who aren't him

man talk about RBF on her. And I will bet that when he comes home she grabs his phone and checks his texts.

A man who marries his mistress creates a new job opening.
