“All contributions by corporations to any political committee or for any political purpose should be forbidden by law” Theodore Roosevelt ~ KimKierkegaardashian ‏@KimKierkegaard I’m in an airplane bathroom taking selfies. What is happiness except this simple harmony between a man and the life he leads? ~ Join Over 500,000 Smart People Subscribe to The Angle to get data-inspired stories weekly, crafted by our editorial team. Simply enter your email address and subscribe. You’ll love it! ~ I’m Christian, But I’m Not ~ I was exchanging emails with a friend Friday night, and she sent me a schedule for the festival. I saw the appearance of Erica Jong had started. I was disappointed, not knowing that I would need a ticket to attend. It turns out there was some drama. ~ Do you have a link for those numbers? I suspect they are close to the truth. However, with memes, you have to take the word of the statistic slinger. In this case, it is someone, whose initials are BS, who has an axe to grind. ~ One of the rhetorical points made these days is the concept that America “was built on the backs of oppressed people”. In this clip, an Economics professor takes issue with that idea. ~ @sadqueer4life i posted “the internet seems like a safe & fun place” on fb and someone commented telling me to kill myself ~ Sometimes, the better question is “Why is this person still on the payroll?” ~ people who sort of self identify as white in an obvious way ~ @haroldpollack @glennloury ~ The people this reminds me of did very little work, unless you count jaw muscles. ~ I like PWOC … people without color … so does the sunscreen industry. ~ I keep a word document on my desktop. When something gets my attention, I write my comment there. Sometimes I post it. Often I do not. On Monday morning, I post this document. Very few people read it. ~ The riff about white privilege is curious. Yes, white people have unearned advantages. The thing is, comedy is not about being fair. It is about being funny. The comedy product that you choose to consume should make you laugh. It should not be based on being fair to different groups of people. ~ Theodore Roosevelt State of the Union 1906 – 3 December 1906 ~ Walter Williams ~ ‘No Blacks’ Is Not a Sexual Preference. It’s Racism ~ another quiz ~ What about black guys that say whites only, or white guys that say blacks only? What about not liking people who are eager judge the racial attitudes of others? Are their SJW groupies? And what color hankerchief should you wear in your back pocket? ~ I think this thread is heavy on the mistaken stereotypes. It is all about white men who don’t like black men. If you look at the hookup profiles, you will see all kinds of scenarios. There are white men who like black men exclusively. There are black men who like whites only. There are people of various categories, who like specific categories for their hookups. Is this a problem? Is this not a problem? Is this (cue monster movie music) racism? Does gay men’s preferences for hookup partners a causal factor for institutional systemic discrimination, or is it just tacky manners? ~ At 1:16, there was a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. The man said, there has got to be a middle. The internet took a break. Bars flashing from dark gray to light gray appeared in the middle of the screen. ~ @chamblee54 @whittmman Just found this new app which lets you know which family members are racist. It’s called a mirror. ~ @raylewis #blackslogansmatter ~ @brian_bilston The grammar police got him, split his infinitive open, removed his colon, left him lying commatose. The next day, he was pronouned dead. ~ that’s not writing that’s word processing ~ pictures from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
