There should be Instant Runoff Voting
Isn't it kind of funny how some conservatives here are all of sudden taking the side of labor over the side of the business owners?
WTF does that even MEAN???"I really felt that I let Paul down in terms of having his back (in Game 3) when LeBron was scoring in the post or getting to the paint, because they stretched me out so much, no homo."
Even in this context, I don't get it:
Erase all my posts. Ha!The phrases no homo and pause are slang terms. They parenthetically assert that the speaker of such does not have any homosexual intent and are usually used after an utterance that may have given that impression
Thank you, Quazi!
LOL The OP's story didn't include the quote, which I found rather funny but was a wonderful example of my general thoughts about the media and how a writers unconscious biases play into things. The OP's story wanted to play up "Gay slur" so it's better to leave it up to the imagination HOW he used it. I had happened to hear the quote on the radio today though, so quickly did a google search and found it.
Let's take a word you used earlier; retard. I think it's a bit like that. It's one thing to go "Lebron James is a retard". It's another thing to say "I needed to play better defense. I was lost out there today and made some retarded mistakes". There could still be people upset that he used "retarded" as a synonym for "stupid", but it's far different than using it as a "slur" aimed at someone.
Comedic timing wise, the "No homo" thing is similar in style to the "That's what she said" line. A statement is said that could be construed in some fashion in a particular light and the secondary statement is made in reference to that.

I have no use of employees bringing bad publicity to my business in the first place.
People have the right to boycott any business they feel like.
What they cannot do is physically prevent anyone else from doing business with me.
and“You know what, because y’all mother****ers don’t watch us play throughout the year, to tell you the truth,” Hibbert said in his televised interview after the game. “I don’t care if I get fined.”
Link“There was Game 3 here that I felt I let Paul (George) down in terms of having his back when LeBron was scoring in the post or getting into the paint because they stretched me out so much — no homo (laughs) — but I want to be there for him. I think he has a chance to be MVP of this league next year.”
