    That brush had to be large because it was designed to cover an entire segment of the population but it isn't my brush that painted that segment.
    What has been happening for decades has given birth to the kind of behavior on that bus.

    Yes, and if one has real self-respect, his actions will not be destructive to others. Did you miss the part about dignity and actions?

    You really don't want to know my views on judicial reform. "Get better or get dead" is a critical and pivotal position. If you can't learn how to do something as simple as "not kill/savagely beat people" pretty quickly, we need a quick skimmer of the gene pool to get the floating cockroach out.

    No problem. I am 5'2" and 110 lbs. And usually armed with a six-pack and roofies. I'll have you purring in minutes, Chunky!

    Not necessarily in that dialect. In the south-western English dialects the first person singular of the verb To Be, is 'be'. It sounds funny to everyone else, "I be gurt happy to meet ee", (think Long JohnSilver) but it's quite correct in that dialect. It's only bad Standard English grammar.

    How about some morality and empathy? Is that too much to ask?

    The meaning was clear enough, his previously "good boy" beat the tar out of a younger child but wishes it to be viewed as a first offense.

    Along with the development of self-esteem, comes morality and empathy. Some of you seem to believe these are separate and unrelated concepts, but they aren't. They are all components of the developing human character.
