    I believe that OWIP is from the Chicago area while your profile indicates you reside in San Diego. I believe that whatever political machinations you attempted to the contrary, OWIP is a better...

    Those who've wronged us are likely to so again. So, an aggressive response to those who have wronged us is very often protective, preventative, and highly adaptive, as are the the feelings of anger...

    Local terms: The Chicago Metropolitan Area [aka: "Chicagoland"] is made up of Cook County (which contains the City of Chicago, as well as 'Suburban Cook County') and the Collar Counties: DuPage,...

    How many is "many"? What sheriff's department should do is go investigate those involuntary cases, not persecute people doing nothing wrong!

    Insulting a person for their actions and who happens to be black isn't racist.
    Insulting them b/c they are black or insulting their race is racist.

    Rush's statement is an example of the latter...

    I agree that it isn't actually "hypocritical". It's just a shitty, selfish, immoral thing to do. She doesn't want her own life ruined by raising a child and recognizes that as a consequence, but...

    That's the point. It didn't stop Trump from winning because evangelicals and all Trump supporters have no strong objections to rape, misogyny, white supremacy, and fascistic threats against those who...

    But if your cherry picking, then you aren't actually taking anything from it at all. You have to already have a moral philosophy to determine what parts you're going to cherry pick. So, then Jesus...
