re: Americans support your right to say offensive things... Je suis Charlie - dewster
[quote]Some seem to possess such a large quantity of intellectual dishonesty that it barely appears to require much of a "struggle" at all.[/quote] You should expect most liberals to prioritize political correctness and censorship over freedom of speech in the end. ...

re: For those who've been stuck in an elevator before... - dewster
I've only gotten stuck once on the LSU campus. I was grateful the vent fan was working. I was in there maybe a half hour. I was on a tiny elevator in Istanbul that could fit one adult only. That would have sucked to get stuck in. Not enough room to really sit down or stretch out. You co...

re: Baltimore protests - dewster
Some of my wife's more liberal friends from that area are furious that this is happening. She said they are the same ones that were posting "burn it down" on Facebook when the Ferguson riots were happening. I hope this comes to a swift end. I live outside Memphis, which is a powder keg with r...
