lolwut r u totes srs???

Look I understand that this is the fringe we're talking about. This doesn't represent mainstream liberalism, I get that. But I'm seeing more and more of this sort of shit, identity politics that overwhelms any sense of reason. I mean, you might expect some white wing nutjob with a whites-as-victims complex to complain about a Dr. King memorial. That's just par for the course at The Heritage Foundation or talk radio. When it comes from the left, however, it makes me sadder than words can express.

This, among other reasons, is why people don't take liberals so seriously. At least, it's part of why I don't, despite sharing some common causes.

Please read the article and don't just riff on the headline. The blogger encapsulates my feelings much better than I can in this post.
Students at the University of Oregon debate whether the civil-rights icon was inclusive enough in his speeches. Welcome to American colleges in 2016.

+Chris Sham  I am a man of little faith in humanity, but rest assured we all come to regret the follies of our youth. If young people insist on interpreting X to mean Y, even after 50+ years of general agreement, then there is nothing I can do to change their minds. Enjoy college and go to a naked kegger for me.

This is an interesting read. It's not an effective critique of feminism, though; not sure how that relates to the story at all. But it is an example of blatant racism and cultural privilege. This person's story deserves to be told.

Fair enough.

There may be other details not presented here, but I think the white feminist accusation stems from the past books of Tricia Sullivan (who seems to be the author in question, maybe, not clear?), which include some all-men-are-dead post apocalypse stuff. I'm still not certain, but she may have presented herself as feminist through those works.

(Just looking at summaries, it does look like some pretty shlocky scifi. She may be a poor writer in general.)

Just FYI, I like Bernie! I'm voting for Bernie! He just needs to back it down a little. =)

I like Bernie, too, and I say he should swing as hard to the left as he can, and then fight for every inch negotiations force his policies back to the right. Meeting in the middle is great, but we need to move the middle to someplace more modern.

The plan to pay for higher education will come from a very small (.03%) tax on speculation transactions from Wall Street. Companies will be picking up the tab for that one. Speaking as a guy whose wife just graduated from college, removing tuition from public colleges will not make college free. There are dozens of other expenses beyond tuition. But that is a huge (YUGE) chunk of the price, and to see that go away would mean so much for millions of kids, a lot of them poor minorities, who want to have a future in this nation.

Don't believe the hype.

The Goblin King will never die. He can't. ='(

He just left our mortal realm for a while...

My mage character that I ran for years in a Vampire Transilvania Chronicles game was loosely based on Jareth, slightly detached and insanely powerful. He first appeared in a LARP VtM game I did for our first group based around the film, the end really did mess up heads.

Unto us a Savior was born.

His birth was heralded by Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, whose nose led the Three Wise Men to the North Pole, and the manger in which He was born. His name was Kris Kringle, He who would become known as Santa Claus. Santa performed many miracles while He was alive, including turning water into cranberry juice and resurrecting the Snowman Lazarus.

But most notable was His death, His sacrifice, for all of us have been naughty and none of us have been nice. He was crucified on an ornamented pine tree, His brow crowned with mistletoe, dying for our sins. For His sacrifice, we still get presents. Hallelujah.

So between opening presents, in the midst of material excess, remember Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, and the Christmas Spirit.

The food was great; I got the pastrami melt and fries. Very happy with the quality and freshness of the food. I'm even happier with the quality of the service. My lady forgot to special-order her cheeseburger, and they substituted it, no cost, no fuss. Would definitely visit again!

Service was friendly, food was okay. Major concern was all the dirt. Tables and chairs were sticky, plus there was dust and grime buildup on the ceiling fans and other surfaces. Robert Irving would be furious!
