re: "I Hate Republicans" ...U. MIch Prof - Bayou Sam
Read, for instance, as a bunch of ignoramuses who don't understand grammar misuse grammar as they complain about the grammar of an article: http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/p/54422435/read-this-column-by-a-literacy-specialist--talk-about-bad-writing/ The above thread is a microcosm of the unive...

[quote]Then give us some opinions on this board by the right that you find loathsome. [/quote] Click on the "Political Talk" link. Read about half of all posts there.

re: Religious fanaticism, Islam and the IRA - Bayou Sam
[quote]IRA was more political than religious. There just isn't that much difference between the Catholic v. Anglican Church. [/quote] The stupidity on this board is just shocking. To the OP: you complain after insulting Muslims that you got a bit of your own medicine? Grow up....

re: Just watched The Dark Knight Rises for the first time - Bayou Sam
[quote]TDK has an amazing performance that carries the film. It's not bad, but not as good as begins. [/quote] Yeah, that's how I see it. It's also thought-provoking as a moral tale. But the narrative is too disjointed (and occasionally cringe-worthy) for the movie to be considered great....

[quote]But what happens if my friend does a sloppy job on a lesson plan? Nothing, really. What happens if your accountant/doctor/lawyer/etc. does a sloppy job on something? Potentially something.

[quote]maybe its because I read the OT, but I tend to read 3x as much bitching about teachers bitching, than I actually read teachers bitching [/quote] It's a constant cry-fest on the political talk board as well. Whining about "whiners," without any sense of irony....

re: TOPS is Racist - "TOPS free college tuition aid goes mostly to white students" - Bayou Sam
[quote]I'm not sure if this was supposed to be serious or not, but it's odd that you chose English to illustrate your point over math and science. Grammar and spelling are not "White" or "black", they are in fact concrete rules that can be judged right or wrong. One group does not get to study Engli...
