  • It's just really arrogant when someone half my age shows up on a bicycle, wearing a nametag and calling me "ma'am" and yet also thinks he has some new information that's going to inform my worldview.
  • OldGriswold said: I genuinely don't understand the Bernie hate. Seems a lot comes from "I don't like Bernie bros" rather than "I don't like Bernie's policies". Anyone care to explain? FWIW I think he'd have beaten Trump, but I also thought H…

  • About the woman issue (for context, I am a 45-yr-old woman) I think Hillary made it so that it wasn't so unusual to see a woman as a serious Presidential contender. It doesn't matter to me that she lost (especially since, you know, she won ... but …

  • I dated an evangelical Christian in the 90s and he would have Mormons over to debate (not sure if the Mormons were aware of the arrangement lol). It was very annoying because I would call him up to go out and he would be like "I can't make it until …

  • Oh yeah, I agree with you. I was kind of drunk last night so I wasn't really fully making my point. Obviously assault weapons should be illegal. 
  • Portland is not a real place
  • I feel like people that demented are always going to find ways to kill. I worry more about gun laws in terms of more everyday gun crimes like domestic abuse, assault, robberies etcetera Etc that are taken to another level because of the presence of …

  • My thoughts were "but I thought that's how all rich kids get into college." and now I am learning, no it's only legal if you are ULTRA SUPER RICH and not "just" I WAS ON A POPULAR SITCOM IN THE 90S rich. So I guess I am really still very super confu…

  • Ooh KD in NYC could be real interesting
