    Actually I think J-Mac summed up your knee jerk reaction pretty good.

    She is a stupid bitch, the comment has nothing to do with generalizing females at all.

    Im talking about her. She is stupid. Thus I feel the need to call her a stupid bitch. Just like if I were to feel the desire to call a male that I thought had less than average intelligence an "ignorant bastard".

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It's also costing the city a lot of money to bring in outside officers and they can't afford to keep doing it.
    They wouldn't have to bring in outside officers if the stupid bitch Mayor had given the previous police chief the funding needed to provide the city with an adequate number of officers.
    This is one of the reasons he resigned earlier, and why they have an "interim" chief currently instead of a "Chief of Police" (for those who haven't caught on to that yet).

    The previous Chief quit over many disagreements with the city administration, including not being provided adequate resource to do the job.

    But, don't take my word for it, go check it out for yourself.

    Absolutely. The thing about that which America is getting fed up with, is that in the beginning, although their message always had that anti capitalist tinge, many in America could get behind an anti bailout, crony capitalism message. However, they went too far, and when clashes with Police, and violence, and crime set in they lost that support.

    I'm someone ha to off their student loans for them! Just not fair at all they're expected to pay debt the accumulated!
    Oh me too....I can't understand why people should be held responsible to pay back what they agree to pay back.....(*tongue firmly planted in cheek here*)

    Bitch is an offensive, sexist term, and it has no place in public speech of any kind. Period.

    I agree. I wonder what a comparable (socially acceptable!!!) term is for a man. Isn't one.

    But sometimes, Nijato, you have to admit the shoe fits.

    This is what happens when you wear out your welcome. This is what the protesters have done. Nowhere in the first amendment does it say you can Bogart public space and keep it from others,nor does it say you can camp out in city parks or create crime cesspools or keep city workers from cleaning up these public spaces.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
