Right, I can interview hundreds and keep the morons too. Go to just about any wingnut site or Google as read the racist comments and tell me which side is racist. Nice try.
And I can visit any leftwing site and see the hatred spewed at any who don't agree with the viewpoints expressed there.
Sorry, your side has a whole lot more due to the inherent lack of teeth.
Liberalmann,You are such a caricature of yourself. Sheesh.
I prefer the eat the food of my culture. Give me a good old steak, mashed, and a couple of string beans, Opsie, guess I am racist. .
Bunkerville,Grilled beef of tenderloin with the trimmings -- that's for me! But I want an entire mound of green beans cooked with bacon or fatback.
We need some input from the Missioair to Mexico.
Gimme a plate of fried Chikin and some warty melon ANC I'm set for. Month
Yep, there is is. Thanks for the confirmation regarding racism and wingnuts.
Nice try, Libturd. The commenter at 12:16 was the idiot who identifies herself at Ema Nymton, or as we like to think of her, Enema.
Sam,A site meter is a beautiful thing, huh?
I spent 3 1/2 years in Madrid as a youngster and developed a taste for tortillas. About once a month, I mix up a batch for my families breakfast. I must be a racist.
...because on the other 3 weekends a month, I usually have croissants or scones
Ah, breakfast! Bacon and eggs -- with grits on the side.
You haven't lived till you've tasted crispy ALBANIAN whole wheat CREPES filled with a blend of feta, and ricotta accompanied by various combinations of sauteed mushrooms, egg, ham, sausage served with a beautiful fresh fruit cup and the best home fried potatoes I've ever tasted.I guess that makes me hopelessly PREJUDICED in FAVOR of ALBANIAN breakfast food, right? That would be true, except I also love what I can get at the local FRENCH sidewalk cafe -- magnificent breads, croissants, crepes, omelettes, various quiches, a variety of salads, great cheeses and glorious patisseries. So I'm also a FRANCOPHILE.Does that make me ANTI-AMERICAN?Does not wanting to eat great slabs of prime rib au jus and Yorkshire Pudding make one an ANGLOPHOBE?Somehow, we've GOT to get OVER this Ess-Aitch-Eye-Tea and start LIVING again.People have a RIGHT to make CHOICES and have PREFERENCES.BYW, I'm well aware the young man interviewing the unenlightened public was putting them in. The guy in the brown shirt DID realize that. Did anyone else?Now, I happen to think being a VEGAN makes one ANTI-HUMAN, so there!
Yeah, you're a regular cosmopolitan, FT.Oh, before it closes next month try the turkey hash at Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe in the South End. Eat some American food for a change.And why do I get the idea you live someplace where you can only get pre-filled cannoli?
Duck,And why do I get the idea you live someplace where you can only get pre-filled cannoli?You're wrong there.
Eat some American food for a change.And why do I get the idea you live someplace where you can only get pre-filled cannoli?ANSWER: Because you are perceptually and intellectually challenged, blinded by prejudice and wholly negative by nature.That was the SHORT answer. You'll have to pay to get the book.And what could "American Food" possibly mean to you, since you are possibly the most UN-American, ANTI-American individual I've ever encountered?Unlike pretentious Yuppies, Metrosexuals, Health Food Addicts, Latté Leftists, Wine Snobs, assertively self-righteous Vegetarians, insufferable Vegans, and those who refuse to let anything but expensive bottled water pass their lips, I am capable of enjoying anything from the finest French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Thai "gourmet" cuisines all the way down to hot dogs and hamburgers on the charcoal grill with baked beans, homemade cole slaw, and homemade potato salad. Ketchup, Mustard, Mayonnaise, Olives -- ripe and green -- and Pickles -- dill and sweet -- go down very well with me, although I confess a decided preference for Grey's Poupon Dijon over French's or Gulden's, which I'm still capable of enjoying without complaint.And once in a while a bucket of good old Kentucky Fried Chicken can be very enjoyable -- as long as it's accompanied by a big tossed salad lightly drizzled with homemade French or Italian dressing. Store-bought salad dressings are generally inexcusable. The success or failure of a dining experience doesn't depend on the food half so much as it does the company with whom one shares it.When travelling the interstates, I always make it a practice to eat breakfast at McDonald's. There's nothing better than an Egg McMuffin or better yet -- a SAUSAGE and EGG, McMuffin.We've already discussed seafood, and -- mirabile dictu -- we AGREE in that.
Any society able to control such things as racism, able to produce a perfectly level playing field, and/or one that is able to generate affirmative action, is also a country that loses its freedoms, creates more (not less) outcome inequality, and produces incompetent educators, doctors, lawyers, and politicians. We are nearly at that point now—don’t believe me? Just look around.The question is, at what point do the victims of racism become racists? What will the elite libtards do once their idiotic Marxist programs have “solved” all our problems? Whatever will they do once the playing field has been perfectly leveled? For example, will they willingly give up all their wealth and privilege, will they be happy to live in Harlem, stand in line awaiting the favor of a government bureaucrat—or do these things only pertain to people who aren’t elite libtards?If there is a “slippery slope,” this society is definitely on it.
I agree, but tempting though it may be, I think it would be wise to stop calling The Other SIde "Libtards" and "Libturds" and the like, because it reflects poorly on "us," and makes "us" look more than a bit a bit childish.Of course, no matter what "we" say, "they" will give it no credence and are bound to treat it to mockery and spiteful catcalling denunciation, etc.HOWEVER,wouldn't it still be better for "us" to take the moral and rhetorical high ground?I think so, just as a matter of policy.
FT,Sometimes we're driven to the name calling. Usually, I am polite, but I've been known to let fly because reasonable discussion often leads to nowhere. Apparently, people today have certain brain centers that are overdeveloped -- overdeveloped in a bad way, that is. HERE is an example of the level to which our society has descended. HERE is a similar example. The squeaky wheel has taken control of the conversation -- even in a forum which is supposed to follow the strict rules of policy debate.
Mustang,will they willingly give up all their wealth and privilege, will they be happy to live in Harlem, stand in line awaiting the favor of a government bureaucrat—or do these things only pertain to people who aren’t elite libtards?It goes back to something that Orwell wrote in Animal Farm: "Some animals are more equal than others."Elitists always except themselves!
"Elitists always except themselves!"True enough, AOW, but it would be wise to remember that the identity of "elitists" changes with the times. Once "The Church" was firmly in charge of Europe -- and like any OTHER Power Bloc, she became drunk on her ability to exercise Authority, abused her elite status hideously, and did a tremendous amount of damage.This is what Mr. JEFFERSON -- and the leading thinkers of The Enlightenment -- tried to warn us against. Their message clearly indicates that Power and overweening Ambition, are mankind's greatest enemies. “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”~ Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)Substitute "Authority" for "Government," and it will make even more sense. DO NOT TRUST AUTHORITY of ANY KIND.This does not hold true in the rearing and education of children, of course.
Today's post just serves to illustrate how absurd PC gets-'nuff said!
Jon,That anyone's dislike of Mexican food is racist is stupid beyond words. But apparently the interviewer in the video found several people that mindless. What is WRONG with people?
I may have tracked down the opportunity to get some authentic paella de marisco.Last night, Mr. AOW and I attended a stroke club meeting. This particular meeting was the annual picnic.At the picnic, I met Pilar, a 30-something woman whose husband had a devastating brain hemorrhage about a year ago. Pilar is from Spain, and we discussed paella de marisco. I'll have to start attending the once-a-month stroke club meetings, I guess.
My father hated Mexican food. "Mostly corn meal and beans," he said. Dad's preference was scrapple with hominy. Heh. His cholesterol was always way below the normal levels. Go figure!
FT typed in this important comment:People have a RIGHT to make CHOICES and have PREFERENCES. Of course, thinking that way doesn't conform. Lack of conformity must be punished -- that's the way a lot of people think in the 21st Century. Talk about devolution!
Of course, here in NYC we eat mainly TexMex. So we'd have to ask Boehner if he hated Mexican or Texan ... food. Or maybe he doesn't like them mixing. Yes, that's the ticket. I think someone recorded him talking to his Texan entree saying "I don't want you to be seen with those Mexican peppers." Apparently this recording was released to the press and his cilantro is boycotting his chimichangas. On the View they were calling for a complete ban of avocado products in the House cafeteria. Oh the humanity!
Why the ban on avocados?
