  1. Does Comet Pizza even serve international dishes?
  2. Changing laws is not hard relative to changing the attitudes of people who are raised to hate and are not informed enough to evaluate their own beliefs. To change beliefs on a large scale, individuals have to do the changing from within. Another law will not do it. That’s where we are now…in need of a small remaining population to be invested in changing their attitudes.
  3. The work we do from here out is harder than it was in the past because we have tackled a lot of the low-hanging fruit already. Beyond changing attitudes, we have political and legal hurdles that still have to be addressed. The continued disenfranchisement of American Indians is a prime example.
  4. When you look at the generational shifts in attitudes, the changes in American views on race have changed very quickly and radically. Most social paradigms change more slowly. I think any study of history illustrates this. Of course, the change is not constant, and we have periods of time in our history where we have slowed or even regressed.
  5. If you didn’t judge history, you wouldn’t be able to tell if we are getting better as a nation. We do make value judgments…that’s human. It’s important to understand the context of WHY things happened as they did and how to improve.
  6. Liberals never forgave Bibi for spurning Obama.
  7. 4 riots broke out between the beginning of your post and the end?
  8. Dammit…You spotted my rage!
  9. I would agree with that description. As such, likely 95% of the time someone in the PG claims another person is triggered, they are, in fact, not.
  10. So rage-filled posts and violent posts = triggered. If rage and violence is not mandatory, what else would imply being triggered? You know, since there is consensus about what it means
  11. Huh?
  12. You said that it required rage/violence. That’s not true.
  13. I don’t think there is really any consensus on what triggered means, thus all the erroneous flinging of the term.
  14. Has anyone ever successfully convinced another poster that they are, in fact, triggered and not laughing at other posters?
  15. Maybe Jr. knows that his dad won’t see it on Twatter but hopes tools will share it on other Internet outlets so his dad can see it
