re: Commonplace things you have never done - Joshjrn
Reading this thread has been tremendously depressing. Except for the guy who has never eaten instant ramen. Same, even though my little sister was obsessed with that shite. Real ramen is legit, though. I’m going to sleep....

re: The current gotcha meme from mask authoritarians - Joshjrn
[quote]I keep trying to find all these threads where posters melted down about the smoking bans, but I just can't seem to find them. Chicken must have deleted them since they were so full of vitriol.[/quote] TD's search function is absolutely abysmal. Plus, I don't think it goes back very far,...

re: The current gotcha meme from mask authoritarians - Joshjrn
This is a response to the people claiming that they can't breathe with a simple paper mask on. It's calling them out as liars. The people who refuse to wear a mask simply to be contrarian while stomping their feet like toddlers throwing a tantrum are idiots, but at least they are honest. ...

re: It’s just a mask - Joshjrn
The problem with this application of slippery slope is that it’s assuming that the country is filled with nothing but the right and left. The reality is that a solid 50% of the population is apathetic. So, when you throw a tantrum over some minor issue, they don’t view you as a patriot holding the l...

re: Lake Charles closed down beaches, businesses, etc for the 4th due to COVID - Joshjrn
[quote]It bothers me that so many are losing their livelihoods currently yet a certain group of "leaders" people are openly encouraging protest. Either it's all OK or none of it is.[/quote] I hear you on a personal, visceral level. It seems fundamentally unfair. The reality is that it [i]i...

re: Lake Charles closed down beaches, businesses, etc for the 4th due to COVID - Joshjrn
[quote]You think defying orders to unjustly close your business isn't a version of political speech?[/quote] My opinion on the subject is irrelevant. SCOTUS draws a distinction between purely political speech and economic behavior taken in contravention of the law, even if done "in protest". Thou...

[quote]We're narrowing it down to just speech to fit your argument?[/quote] *sigh* My argument is as follows: [quote]Whether one agrees with it or not, the current state of jurisprudence from SCOTUS gives higher protections to speech, especially political speech, than it gives to economic ...
