    Imagine there were two different court systems, one where people like you generally win and one where people like you generally lose. Now imagine that in order to get a job, your employer requires you to sign a contract forcing you to resultant disputes against them in the court where you generally lose. Now add to that the fact that you aren't allowed to file as a member of a class. That means you will always have to hire your own private attorney or represent yourself. You have no collective bargaining potential, and your issue must be heard in a vacuum. Also, you have no potential for a jury and your appeal process is extremely limited and very expensive. That's why it's a big deal.

    Are you willing to set your Imbecile-loving neighbor and his/her family on fire for your cause? A) If the answer is "yes", then feel free to call yourself "The Resistance". B) If the answer is "no", then call yourself something else, you moron.

    This is horseshit and you know it. The fact that a sense of "pride" essentially compelled you to "sell blood plasma for food money" rather than take some government assistance that would've at least given you a marginally bit better financial condition to pursue opportunities to "better" yourself doesn't strike me as being a particularly worthy path to emulate.

    Gun violence is gun violence. Why should we ignore suicides? When I was involved in pyschiatric research, i heard many, many people say they would commit suicide if they had access to a gun. A lot of these people had failed previous suicude attempts. The perception is that suicide by firearm is easy and painless. There should be absolutely no doubt that limiting access to firearms would reduce the number of suicides.

    I don't want this thread to go off the rails, but WTF does TLJ have to do with this movie? It'd be like saying that you're not interested in Logan because X-Men: Apocalypse sucked. If you didn't like TLJ, that's a shame, but people keep bringing it up as if it deeply harmed them and they don't want to be triggered by anything remotely related. It's weird. Anyways, I've got my tickets to see it opening weekend. As unimpressed as I've been by the trailers, it's still a Star Wars movie.

    Retail is increasingly becoming an experience and people driven endeavor; they need to focus on those aspects. They already do that to a certain extent through midnight launches, but there is a lot more they could do: more tournaments (I know some stores already do this, but it should be a company wide initiative), Q&A sessions with game developers, sale events where people can get discounts if they cosplay as a character, stuff like that. Even reinforcing stuff they already do, like demo kiosks, would be a big help. Ninety percent of the battle in retail is getting someone in the store, and they just don't do a good job at that; superstores like Walmart and Target don't have to worry about that because of the size and scope of their stock, but for specialty retailers, it is increasingly important.

    It’s really gotten to the point where I don’t give my white friends any amount of grace on being on the wrong side. The amount of video evidence of the regular harassment black folks receive in this country is so overwhelming that it isn’t good enough to say they are ignorant. They know this happens, they just don’t care.

    Just checked on a couple of my summer season employees who go there. Both were ok, one was in the room next to where the shooting happened. Shook up but ok.

    This. The Palestinians largely want an Islamic dictatorship, which would either make Israelis (and Jews more generally) second-class citizens or just expel/exterminate them completely. Meanwhile Israel will continue to lack restraint in its reaction to Palestinian provocations, dispensing unnecessary misery and oppression along with the ‘necessary’ misery and oppression that is the unavoidable byproduct of any use of marshal force. I have no idea how either side will ever reach a point where they can stop killing each other, and wonder often if they’re just destined to keep fighting until one or both sides is completely wiped out. And at that point you might indeed call it a kind of ‘genocide without genocidal intent’.

    Witness, ladies and gentlemen, the overheated brain of the Neoconservative, ever fast at work trying to pave over the memory of the abysmal failure that was their approach to geopolitics, and the fact that few have done more to inflame the armies of radical Islam and the nuclear arms race than them. Because, seriously, after debacles like Iraq, what sane person running a country in the Middle East WOULDN’T feel driven to acquire a nuclear weapon—when at any moment you can be unilaterally invaded by a wealthy, stable country that you haven’t attacked under a feeble, manufactured pretext? What better justification and incentive is there for developing a nuclear arsenal?

Now, as we all know, Dearbon is home to one of America's largest Muslim communities. I, for one, am absolutely disgusted by this act of creeping Sharia into our daily lives. This offensive display by American Muslims...*checks earpiece* oh, it's a Catholic school? Well, freedom of religion and all that. Carry on.

    The WHCD is has always been a travesty that no self-respecting journalist should ever attend. A journalist should never, ever attend a social function with those they are covering.

    Of course, you might think that ironies this obvious rarely occur in the real world. Surely life is much more subtle. But if you assume this, you haven’t yet read Bari Weiss’ New York Times op-ed/fawning profile, “Meet the Renegades of the Intellectual Dark Web.” Weiss uses the nation’s paper of record to introduce audiences to a group of people whose voices are supposedly being kept out of mainstream institutions, but who for some reason I seem to hear about all the damn time.

    Reality is probably closer to that than: Trump: Yes may I please speak to Crime? Cohen: Crime speaking, how may I violate campaign finance law?

    The fun little ride I just went on: -Man, Alan Wake was awesome. -Holy shit, Alan Wake is 8 years old. -What have they done since? -Oh yeah, Quantum Break is a thing. Maybe it's cheap by now. -$40 on Steam? No thanks. I'll wishlist it for when it goes on sale... -I already own Quantum Break? What? Why haven't I played it? -Oh, that's right, my PC doesn't hit the min specs. -Back to God of War.
