The truth is, the spread of Judeo-Christian culture (not dogmatic Catholicism) gave great prosperity to the west, not SKIN color. There are no peer reviewed, credible, scientific studies that will claim that "being white" or "being black" alone can predict future success in life. But you can predict success on cultural behaviors and social norms.

The entire moral foundation of Western culture is based in Judeo Christian values, whether you are a religious person, or not, you cannot deny this fact. From marriage, to equality, to codes covering theft, murder, crime, etc, and how to treat your fellow brother within your collective. In fact you could make the claim that the enlightenment was setup and lead by Scientist who were strong adherents to Judeo-Christian ideology; Galileo, Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon, Maria Mitchell, and later on Albert Einstein himself. These people were able to escape the dogmatic nature of the Catholic Church and maintained the moral foundation of the Bible. It lead to the creation of one of the greatest nations the planet has ever seen.

This moral foundation lead to a culture that had one of the lowest single parent family rates in the industrial revolution, and the stability from the proliferation of the stable nuclear family created the bed rock for western culture to prosper generation after generation. Each generation became smarter than the last, and wealthier than the last. That is until leftism and big government came upon the scene. The single parent family rate began to statistically increase under FDR's "new deal", and steeply rose after Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society" initiative where millions upon millions became dependent on Government subsidies and handouts to survive, mostly poor blacks and minorities.

This is why anyone who actually believes in Leftism/Democrat policies has to be trolling, or literally someone of low IQ. Leftism has NEVER, ever accomplished anything without redistribution of wealth (theft), or extreme government totalitarianism (Slavery under the Democrat South, USSR, Mao's China, Pol Pot, etc).

Hillary Clinton was asked if Harvey Weinstein's behavior reminded her of her husband. She said: "Close, but no cigar".

If your insults were actually better you would have made a point. Unfortunately...

Insulting users better than they have insulted you isn't trolling. It may not be courteous, but trolls deserve no courtesy.

Just got back to Atlanta. My thoughts:

1) Holy shit the roads are in great shape
2) Holy shit it's clean

Never did I think I would call Atlanta clean, but SF sets the bar really low.

This morning I was in the gym (in SF) and goddamn, some of the dike freaks that pretend to work out are flat out disgusting. Musta been one of those gender fluid bitches.

Looking back, leaving CA was the best decision i made. I miss some of the terrain, but the trade off isn't worth it.

And now back to enjoying my big ass, mortgage free house. Think I'm gonna go cook a steak and clean my gun... Because I can.

Europe is totally lost. They let unmitigated illegal immigration destroy their sovereignty and culture. Leftism is a disease.

because this would mean he could not have been a left winger


Could also mean that he was examined by a "left winger" doctor, who didn't see anything wrong (since all left wingers suffer from the same illness).

it will show that you and your alts voted down dozens of times and all real users voted up.


Why do you pull such shit out of your ass. Care to point out all these Alts?

Speaking of Alts, you probably got at least 3 upvotes from all Iwog's Alts, and it still couldn't get you into positive territory.



iwog says
All the down votes are coming from Goran. He's running about 20 accounts.


Another one FULL of shit when it's been proven with FACTS that iwog has at least 3 Alts. But we all know Iwog makes blatant assertions and accuses people without a single shred of evidence. It's what he does.

Why are you pathetic Liberals such liars??

Menopause is unique to humans, not apes, and may have evolved because grandmothers have more reproductive value in taking care of their grandchildren than in reproducing again.

NFL players should be respected for taking the unpopular moral stand


Ok you're obviously not getting it. Perhaps a cultural divide is the issue, so let me break it down for you.
1. Fans like to watch football.
2. Fans often find it unbelievable that players get paid so much to essentially play a game. They also secretly envy the players for this privileged lifestyle, as it certainly is.
3. The players privileged lives are made possible by the dollars of fans who are mostly working class people with dreary or uninteresting jobs.
4. The fans have certain cultural similarities including patriotism, as their unifiers. Football acknowledges this with merchandise and traditions geared toward reinforcing a love of football as a quasi-patriotic past time. They even have fighter jets pass low over the stadium at each and every Super Bowl!
5. These fans fork out money for espn subscriptions, fan merchandise, tickets, beer, and memorabilia because they find unity with other fans in enjoying football.
6. When the players kneel in protest of the anthem, the fans see this a a break in the unity of love for sport and country. To them, the players are pissing on one of the key pillars that underpin their sport and thus their profession. When the players refuse to be patriotic, the fans see them as "the other," as outsiders, as foreigners reaping the rewards of the American football tradition while disrespecting our traditions in general.
7. This is intolerable to the fans that these privileged few would kneel, effectively saying that they are against the unity of country and tradition that affords them their very livelihoods!

You have to admit: when put in this context, the player protest is absolutely bonkers insane. If they wanted to quit and go be bouncers at various night clubs or day laborers pulling stumps, they should have just done so and not drug their sport down with them.

No, just too busy fighting off druggies and homeless. One literally peed on my parking spot last week, had to chase the asshole away. They steal mail frequently, leave needles and syringes on the sidewalk making it dangerous for children.

It's a real bad problem, highest fucking taxes and worst hobo problems in the nation. Liberals really fucking our state up. Their results over years are shit. Poverty, homelessness. But they are walking all proud of themselves just because they got a transgender bathroom in some coffee joint. Fucking assholes.

My shack is about 350k on a good day. Otherwise low 200s. If buyers realize homeless problem it'll be fire sale pricing. Who would want to raise a family in a place like this? Even I'm tempted to vote with my feet and move out.

Ft Wayne - if it's such a liberal shittole, why do you stay?

I scrolled through your recent comments and about 70% of them are bashing on CA and its politics and especially "the gays". If it triggers you so badly why don't you leave? Life is too short to be constantly triggered like this.


Probably waiting for his shack to hit 3M mark.
