  1. Here...

    Here is a transcript of Smith's comments which while rambling, squarely puts responsibility on the victim for provocation.

    Dungy said here

    "

    While I no longer indulge, it would be a severe case of memory loss to ignore what I once did.

    Frankly, Maliki seemed to be an obstacle that could not be overcome by any kind of negotiation. He wanted to be Shi'a prime minister and get payback for the subjugation of the Shi'a by Saddam...

    Come on jej..... It is based on the idea that they get to say anything without any consequences. Absolute freedom without concurrent responsibility.
  6. Dungy's statement, absent his later clarification...

    Dungy's statement, absent his later clarification could be taken as homophobic, while Smith's statement was blaming women for getting themselves beaten. Personally, I am anti homophobia and I don't...

    Then using your logic, I could just post what they said afterword.... They meant what they said.

    Really? Please post the statements they made that support your supposition.

    This comment gets back to a post I made earlier. People have no control over how they feel. They do have control over how they react. Dungy and Smith both recognized they had made serious enough...

    Dungy does not have a history of homophobia, Smith does not have a history of domestic violence or misogyny. People are just not going to remember because they were short shelf life stories.

    It is a bit more nuanced than the media having no influence or complete influence. The influence can be high or low, long lasting or short lasting, but mostly, it seems that the influence is limited...

    To me, this entire thread's conflict is missing a single point, that being, all of these people may voice their opinion, no matter how odious, but, they are not entitled to do so without consequence....

    I never said nor meant to imply that you are a liar. I carefully wrote about self perception. Frankly classifications of strict anything are generally without merit. I was only commenting on your...

    To add to your point about the power of the word look at the suicides that have taken place of the young people who have been cyber bullied.

    Words have a lot of power. I have made my living for...

    The view you are using is focused on the dollars, not what the dollars buy. The same apartment costs over $600 a month more from Topeka to Los Angeles. So, if you are paid $600 more you are not...

    The reason it is Dickensian is the actual support numbers you are quoting are right at the poverty line. The people that are currently earning that amount, are getting Medicaid, food stamps, etc. If...

    I understand why your self analysis of your level of conservatism makes you feel you are not "all that conservative" because you separate yourself on some positions (your depiction of the...

    What's wrong with you Flips..... Reefer Madness documented this in 1936! Just kidding. I think you couched your statement well.

    Two points.

    Since we agree I should not patronize people if I find them reprehensible, do you think I should be limited to talking to myself, or do you have a problem with me making my feelings...

    In as much as you made no comment about my observation that people do not choose what offends them, but might choose how they act on it, or react to it, I am guessing we agree.

    I fully disagree...

    Bold section only.

    I do not choose what offends me. I might or might not have a choice how I react to it, but that is different than choosing what causes the offense.

    The context argument only...

    It occurred to me that this thread's thesis is seriously flawed because, most people I have ever known are offended by some names. Granted, some are less easily offended, but that does not make them...

    I think your original point was export, not production. While we are now a net exporter, I am guessing we will continue to be such a large domestic user that we will not be as large an exporter as...

    I don't think that is true. I think you might be confusing natural gas with crude oil. However, if I am wrong, I would love to see your source.
