re: NGT on race - Bestbank Tiger
[quote]Likewise, if a certain black person who believes all of his problems are caused by whitey and this world is unfair to him loses out on a job to a white person, he is more likely to attribute this to racism bc of his preconceived notions. If a certain white person believes that being a white m...

re: How would Romney be handling the Ukraine situation? - Bestbank Tiger
Hard to say. Russia is one of the countries that does whatever it wants and can get away with it. We aren't going to go to war with them over Ukraine. Not even if we had Cheney in the Oval Office. The only way the situation would be different would be if Romney had put a couple of US military bas...

re: 25 Muslim taxi drivers refuse to drive cabs displaying "Gay Games" ads - Bestbank Tiger
[quote] I do believe that cab drivers should be either suspended or fired for refusing to drive cabs with the advertisements on them. [/quote] What if a female cab driver doesn't want to drive a cab with a Hustler Club ad? That's demeaning to women and a reasonable person would say it constitute...

re: 25 Muslim taxi drivers refuse to drive cabs displaying "Gay Games" ads - Bestbank Tiger
[quote]Your point is null and void since - as I've pointed out - Christians would not have done this. They would have insisted it was their right to display or not display whatever God tells them to display or not display on their cabs and continued to drive to the airport - and when some guy carryi...

re: WTF am I supposed to do? Health Insurance... - Bestbank Tiger
[quote]He's right in a sense, BB. "Cheap plans" are cheap, because they generally have high deductibles. For a poor individual, paying the high d is a non-starter. So - in effect - they are *worthless*. [/quote] Have to disagree there. A young, healthy person will be able to pay off the deductibl...

re: Would the Dems be opposed to using election ink at elections? - Bestbank Tiger
Sounds reasonable. But it would still allow some degree of fraud. You wouldn't be able to vote and then go impersonate a dead person or a person you know can't make it to the polls. But you could still cross the state line from Illinois/Kansas/R-Kansas into Missouri in order to influence the outc...

The D's shouldn't be too excited about that poll.

One-fifth of respondents said they did not know which party had ...

Cute Easter activity for the little ones - Bestbank Tiger
