Sometimes it really does mean that, sometimes the thought of being as lonely IRL as you are on CD is not all that nice and they don't want to offend everyone around them.
Are you aware that this is known as the Nuremburg defence? It is named after the Nazi soldiers who were put on trial in Nuremburg, and who argued that they only mass exterminated Jews to "fit in" with their leader's wishes.
Life's dealt you a shitty hand? I hear the excuse.
But dwellin won't help, it's all mental refuse
that you let help weigh you down.
Can't seem to progress, always wearing a frown.
Maybe everyone seems to hate you, always calling you names?
Parents beat the shit out of you? Uncle played weird games?
You wearing hand me down shoes? Underwear too?
Can't even think straight cause your house is like a zoo?
Well you can't change others, and you can't change the world.
You can only change yourself, slice them thoughts with a sword.
The thoughts holdin you back, know who it is that is the lord
of your sacred realm. Clear the fortress of your mind.
Don't help? Burn it up crispy as a pork rind.
So your lover left you out flat?
your friend turns out to be a thieving rat?
lost your job? Can't pay the rent?
Dog got hit by a car? You sleeping in a tent?
Well, will complaining solve your problem?
Excuses don't help you solve em.
Why are you blaming the system or the state?
It's this way for a reason, and it's our fate
to go through the trial of achieving self rule.
But the invaders are within, don't be a fool
and attack that on the outside.
You'll never win, castles made of sand, taken by the high tide.
Subjugate the world, still got spies in your palace.
The power corrupts, what poison hides in your chalice?
What matters is the truth,
and you gotta be a sleuth
fighting nail and tooth
with your mind so obtuse.
With lies, make no truce.
At least with yourself, honesty is the key.
It's the holy spirit that'll set you free
and help you see the way things be.
It'll purify like tea,
leaf from the living tree.
Ignorance ain't bliss
don't let yourself miss
knowledge sweet kiss.
Death's cancer cyst?
Beat it down with your fist
with a calculated punch, you ain't even pissed.
Just calm and collected like a precision assassin.
Maintain like the Tzar has gotta be your passion.
Got agents in the brain, CIA, Interpol.
Knowing yourself is integral to the goal
of being a good king. It's all about self control.
Fighting an endless war, and it can really take its toll.
But it can be won, keep your head up.
You grow into a dog, the enemy a little pup
skinny and starving cause you ate all its food.
Stops pissin on your tree, quits being rude
You've conquered yourself, living with a good mood.
I’m not here to troll. Your analogy fails to recognize the valid point of my initial post. I decided to go with the analogy because you pretend to be superior while frequenting the same dive bar as the rest of us. But a sloppy drunk is a sloppy drunk regardless of their drink preference. So you can sip your wine and feel all kinds of ways about it, but your caliber of debate is no more impressive than the beer drinker. The difference is that the beer drinkers know it.
And anyway, fine wines are for ego fluffing, not refinement.
Some things I've seen all I can see of
without losing myself, keeping my eye on the real love
All eyes are mind, as are all ears, but
wisdom and knowledge are the shears that cut
the future from the past
throw out the hour glass
wasting time, make it go fast
be a glutton and a sloth, you'll finish last
and the last ain't always first.
a fool will find himself hurt
by regretting that which never got done.
Skipping out on the life of fun.
Keep busy, slow down time, ain't about the money
Ain't here forever, enjoy it when it's sunny.
Before you get old, your bowels all runny,
resting on your life's last Sunday.
Like a baby again, old man with a piss tin
you tell your story, will anyone listen?
You got a girl by your side who you be kissin?
Are you fighting the world, or fighting yourself?
Can you sit at the throne, and see you have wealth
of the spirit, the kingdom in good health.
Maintain like the tzar, you don't even need a car
riding on that shooting star, your mind will take you far.
Your life on par with the greatest in
the hall of kings, purify and cleansin
the shit your body sensin.
If truth be good, and evil be falsehood
an honest man will know what it is he should.
Do, adjust, and adapt to the environment.
Not every moral choice is locked in cement,
tied to the laws enforced by a government,
or what you think it was Jesus had meant.
What do you want done, what don't you want to happen?
Is that what morality is? Before you start flappin
your gums about what is wrong or right,
realize morality is not always blak and white.
We all play a game, have our own rules
if you don't follow your own, you'll join the game of fools
playing right into another's strategy.
being easy to predict helps prevent a tragety
in the game that is run by the elite select few
who make billions from making a monkey out of you.
But does it matter? Why should you care?
You do the same, it's all fair
because a sucker to one is a winner in his mind,
what matters to him is different, and you'll find
that the only way to win some games is not to play.
Because who gives a fuck about what a man has to say
when his mind isn't aware of the metagame?
Thinking to win means drugs, money, sex, and fame
which as an end goal turns out pretty lame.
Selling your soul so you can have the same
goals as the plastic around you, gargling shit without shame.
Yes, I definitely would - but it's a complicated thing. Emotions are unpredictable things, and the future is a lot like juggling, when you're learning - it's amazing how little things can become magnified, and it all fails. I'd make sure not to go into it with blinders on, but it's got beautiful possibilities.
I hope it works out well, whatever you decide.
This is how sick this political correct world is becoming. To trivialize something as important as a father in a child's life, shows the utter lack of caring for children from all these feminist or Lesbian homes.
Lets see, it's father's day at school, and the child has to explain why their father is not here.
Well, uhhhh, my father is not here because I don't even know who he is, but I brought the test tube with me. My mother says she needs no man, but I would have loved having a father.
Sperm from a man and woman who can not conceive the normal way is one thing, but to take sperm from complete strangers just so some women can have a Baby without bothering with love and marriage, is a joke.
I wonder why the Left cares so little for the wellbeing of our children?'
NO, it's not in the best interest of the child to have no father at home. Sometimes it can't be helped, but should never be a plan for women who are too bored with their lives and want a child to bandaid their unnatural lifestyle.
I really don't care.
If there was something there, I wouldn't shed a single tear as they cuffed her- but I didn't expect a damn thing. Is she a criminal? Likely. Are the republicans barking up the wrong tree? As always. What she's actually guilty of, they do on a daily basis - it's called selling out the nation.
You said that “Gender...(is) the social and cultural differences associated with the biological sexes”. This isn’t inaccurate, though I think you overly separate the social role from biology when you move on to say that people can change their gender.
First, this whole discussion has been around the role of being upfront about such a change. The is because people whose gender fits their biology are in fact different from people whose gender does not. The fact that trans women are not in fact the same as women leads to there being different considerations concerning them, as this conversation has illustrated.
The fact that something is a social construct does not mean it is completely fluid. Language is a social construct, but you cannot make up gibberish and expect to be understood. The social construction of gender roles doesn’t negate the biological ties that gender has to sex. They cannot be completely severed.
The definition of Gerrymander is to manipulate the boundaries of (an electoral constituency) so as to favor one party or class.
So who first decided where the boundaries of election districts would be? Those officials and politicians in charge at the time, that's who.
Are you saying that those boundaries are written in stone for all time?
The people should decide if they want to change it when voting.
The Supreme court will be addressing the issue.
I thought the Left was big on calling the Constitution a living document that could change with the time? Why not boundaries?
When it comes to truly barbaric things, the GOP is not so inhuman to support something just because the other side does it.
The Democrat Party supports No Restriction abortions of healthy viable babies. Why is it Conservatives do not say we will also support the inhumanity.
There is such a thing as right and wrong, and people grounded in humanity understand when to say no.
I came up with an algorithm about how bad to be in any society:
I am a huge proponent of the idea that if everyone is breaking a law, then you should join in and break it.
I am also a huge proponent of the idea that if you're among the first to break a rule, you are scum and need to be disciplined.
I am furthermore a proponent of the idea that if there is a non-rule-breaking way to counteract the cheating, then do that instead.
According to this algorithm, Dems should do it too if Reps are unpunished for it.
The longer you treat them as kids, the longer they'll act like kids. When we changed the drinking age to 21, what happened?
When we assumed most were adults after puberty, they got jobs and led responsible (more or less) lives as young teens. Physically, people mature younger, now, but emotional and mental maturity is stunted because the societal message is that they're children.
This is how snowflakes get created.
To start with, a man cannot marry a man unless you change the meaning of the word marry into something with no unchangeable definition. If you first change the meaning of marry, deny that it is the joining of a man and woman to be one flesh as God has ordained, then a man can marry a rock or a fish or his mother or sister or his dog or whatever he claims in the name of Hell he feels like marrying.
What's WORSE for the country is Trump's attack ON the media... And, while I'm at it, when Trump attacks the FBI, the country LOSES, too.. How is it, that this DUNCE of a president doesn't know that??
How is it that YOU don't know that?? I thought right wingers LOVED the Constitution.. No, huh???
It's not an act of charity, you get paid for it and a single mother-in-the-making is just as entitled to buy your sperm as a lesbian couple is. This is simply the reverse of surrogate pregnancy and due to how sperm physically works (as opposed to pregnancy) you don't even need to sign a contract other than the one that gives the clinic the right to use your sperm as they please.
You should only do this if you are that desperate for cash. The thing is, though, that if you are actually that desperate for cash they rarely will want your sperm because they advertise your sperm by your profession, height, weight and race (among a few other things but those four are always mentioned) so if your profession isn't respectable they will rarely want to buy your sperm in the first place.
So, you ASK a question just so you can answer it and call me names???? DUDE!! I guess I DO annoy you..
But, since you brought it up - I WON'T say his name, because I'm not here to make people FEEL stupid - but, there IS a participant here who says that I'm NOT Jewish because he doesn't like my Jewish heritage, or something like that.. I NEVER did get what he was actually saying..
But, it's doesn't matter, cause the guy who said that is either STUPID, makes up history, or HATES Jews.. I dunno which, and I don't care..
its got to be Excon who feels we are all too stupid to know where the emphasis in a sentence is.
I'm NOT here to make friends.. That I've ANNOYED you means I'm doing my job..
Look.. I DON'T capitalize the "e" in my name, like YOU do... I'm VERY annoyed at that..
Overall, no one here is too annoying because I don't let you fuckers get to me. :)
You guys are too blatant when you troll, my brain goes 'red alert this is designed to make me angry' and I just laugh at it or ignore it depending how unfunny it is.
The one who tries most to be annoying is definitely Brontoraptor. He is not the most annoying though because he fails due to how blatant he is. xD
Maybe I am the most annoying member. I wouldn't know.
Were the founding fathers wrong?
No. The British were shitheads and still are. That's why the modern left wants to be like the British and the modern right still has to fight off the redcoats.
Was Dr. King wrong?
No. That's why the Democrats killed him and Malcolm X.
Was JESUS wrong when he disobeyed the Pharisees and Romans to save our souls?
No. That's why we oppose you, the new Pharisees.
You immediately came up with him being your brother the moment I pointed it out. You slipped up by trying to cover it up with such a ridiculous lie and could potentially have made it out like I'm framing you with this idiotic denial but you fucked yourself over.
Even if you denied it, it's too obvious. You also should know that the real power in this site (Andy) can see factually who is who and he knows you are the alt-spamming trash poster.
I already exposed you buddy, the best you can hope for is an equal exchange of exposing. The thing is, for all anyone knows you could be downvoting people I would downvote just to frame me, it's not conclusive evidence but you have admitted to being a well known troll with alt accounts which IS conclusive.
Don't throw stones out of a glass-house fuckboy.
You thought you could turn me exposing you into you framing me with this debate and I flipped your entire idea upside-down, inside-out by first baiting you into denying a provable fact (you being Leafy) by masking it in between less provable alts of yours and you openly admit it the moment I prove it.
This account, the very account you accuse me of being, down-voted my posts as well in that debate (but different posts since those had maxed-out their 24 hour limit on down-votes for the GoodListener account) http://www.createdebate.com/user/points/MilkJar
Your other accounts have downvoted me 2-3 at a time on and off and you used to do it to Nomenclature.
You are not fooling me for a split second and should probably delete this debate to save yourself the embarrassment of how I back-fired your 'exposing' debate hardcore.
Like anyone cares what I do here, and yes I denied it. If it was me what would I do? DENY IT. If it was my brother what would I do? DENY IT. If it has nothing to do with me what would I do? DENY IT
So no matter what I would deny it, me denying it doesn't prove anything.
"If a man pretends to be his twin brother in order to trick his brothers girlfriend into sex, you wouldn’t support legal recourse for her?"
I would, because they lied about who they are, not about their features. Individual A pretended to be individual B in order to con individual B's girlfriend. If a woman only sleeps with rich men, and a poor courtier purposefully gives several signals that he is wealthy (or even outright lies) in order to sleep with them, is this rape?
"You acknowledge that gender identity is of paramount importance to a relationship, why not important in the short run as well?"
I view one night stands as people simply using each other as masturbatory devices. The male is effectively an animate dildo and the female is effectively a living flesh-light. As such, it's only really important if the person finds out. This isn't to say I condone such deceptive behavior because I don't and as aforementioned the consequences for both parties if the truth emerges are likely to be major. The straight person is likely to be mentally scarred and the trans person is likely to be physically scarred.
"Why is the sexual orientation of the misled person less important than the gender identity of the misleader?"
I don't view the gender identity of the misleader as more important than the sexual orientation of the misled. Nice use of the Socratic method by the way.
