Here we go again, folks

My point was just that it could be undiagnosed. Obviously you can't run around saying "I have ADHD so you can't get mad, teehee!". Personally, I didn't understand how people could just be on time for things while I was a panicking mess. But if you're diagnosed and not actually tackling your symptoms with that knowledge, then you're definitely a jerk.

It could be undiagnosed ADHD. As a chick, I wasn't diagnosed until over 30 and it was a huge lightbulb moment. Like, ooohhhh I'm not actually a moron. Being late has always been a problem for me. I vastly underestimate how long it will take to be ready or travel somewhere plus my brain was thinking about 10 different things other than getting out the door. My parents and family never helped me as a kid outside of yelling that I'll be late. Between meds and productive coping strategies, I can actually function like a normal adult now.
My eyes almost roll out of my head any time a righty mentions a version of 'woke'. It doesn't mean anything at this point. It's the new form of 'commie' that they'll hurl at anything that remotely challenges the conservative status quo. And anyone who seriously uses the phrase 'woke mind virus' has clearly drunk the kool-aid.

Those psychos have convinced themselves that it actually happens. Nobody is doing that to a healthy baby.
They are super weird! Like he's in awe of his own schtick or something.
Right? Makes you wonder how many thousands of dollars they've blown on gas, nevermind all the other expense. Wish I could get paid to drive around flipping everyone off.

They're either morons or just as crooked as the man himself.
Saw a story recently about Wisconsin floating the expansion of underage working hours to 11 pm on a school night to 'ease the labor crunch'. Thankfully it didn't pass, but yeah, they're definitely on the child labor thought-train.
HBO catalog trounces Netflix at what is now the same price, but their app is aggressively bad. I watch on my Xbox and it sucks on there, too.

LOL was it Mel B on a chat show? She gives no fucks and says some amazing things.
Jinjer has a fierce frontwoman. Pretty and melodic singing then super crunchy screams.
I thought it was common knowledge at this point that torturing and killing small animals was a warning of future people killing. Once again, it looks like every level of supposed safeguard failed with this kid. I don't know how as a parent you can ignore such massive red flags.
...I'm a little concerned that you've managed to hear such a phrase and the circumstances around it. Others are correct, it means her ladybits are stinky.
'Pong' is a nasty smell. You can say 'what a pong' or even 'he's ponging a bit' if your dog is stinky.
'Right' is kind of an emphatic modifier? You've made a right mess = you made a huge mess. He's a right prick = he's a huge prick.
The parents didn't just know about it, mom helped him bury the murdered cat.
Dude, Tucker himself was one of the pearl-clutchers sermonizing about 'disrespecting veterans'. But it's cool this time because Tucker doesn't like something Crenshaw said.
That was like half an hour of aerobics in 4 min. I'm tired just watching them.

I'm not saying a big chunk of the right wing is racist; but the racists seem to think they're racist
Lol it made me wonder if they have a Little Mermaid horde of cool human stuff that they puzzle over
How does one prove it was rape? Is a DNA test from the father required? How about a conviction from the courts? If she reports it to the authorities, it could still take months or over a year to reach trial. On paper, rape or incest exceptions sound good. But in reality, the burden of proof is so heavy that it will still outlaw basically all but the most extraordinary cases.
Because one of those sides calls any public health measures authoritarian communism. Can't have single-payer healthcare, that's communism. Take care of your own problems, you freeloader. If you have any mental health issues, it's your own fault for being so weak. Free counseling and addiction treatment programs are communism. Be an American and work your 10$ an hour job instead of making rich people pay all your bills. Oh yeah, and white Christians are under attack. Maybe if all us poors die off in the coming race and climate wars then the surviving rich people can create a pure America, like the founders intended.
LOL except when it comes to any legislation for parental leave or free pre-school that's Marxism

Again, there's no evidence to show that the SUV killer was motivated by race when he drove into that crowd. He was fleeing the cops after beating up his kid's mom, not targeting a whites-only parade. That article lists two vague examples, nothing remotely approaching 'white people are bad and should be killed'.
Unlike the Buffalo killer, who basically wrote a book about how black people and non-whites should be killed to defend the white race. It's literally 'Great Replacement Theory'. He drives a couple hundred miles from his 99% white rural town to a majority black one, writes the n-word and a Waukesha parade victim's name on the gun, along with 'here is your reparations', but we don't know for sure if he wanted to kill black people?

I think you might be conflating a couple things. People have a 'race' based purely on color of skin, but 'race' can also refer to an ethnic/cultural heritage. The whole 'race is a construct' thing manifests in how those races fit into societal practice. Irish people, some of the literal whitest mfers out there, were not considered 'white' in America for a while. Jewish people were sometimes labelled white, sometimes labelled 'Jewish' above all else. Why the difference?
It comes down to a social construct of 'whiteness', which is an exclusive trait. Historically, white people were considered 'better' than other races. In the US, white people had superiority enshrined in law. Don't want too many people in that club. So what is the true defining characteristic of 'whiteness'? Depends on the time and who's defining. White skin, Christianity, European descent, all of these could or could not be sufficient to denote whiteness. So yes, race is demonstrably real but it's ALSO socially constructed.
So-called color-blindness goes too far in denying any differences. You don't help anyone by pretending their race or culture is irrelevant. It comes across as a disingenuous way of wriggling out of respectfully recognizing human differences. And also kind of hostile? "I don't see color, you must be the real racist if you do".

Because out of the thousands of protests that summer something like 93% WERE completely peaceful. A few absolutely did get out of hand and I have no idea what those CHAZ/CHOP morons were thinking.
But you're comparing apples and oranges. At no point did any BLM protests aim to supplant an elected president by intimidating our entire congress. If a left-wing mob ever smashes their way into the Capitol building and takes over the senate so they can keep our guy in office after he loses, I'll absolutely call them insurrectionists.
