    I wasn't, but I'm adding it to my list.

    Cracker Barrel
    Easy Blonde
    Hooters

    I think Owls should be pissed that they've been sexualized in the name of chicken wings and beer.

    Golden State Warriors
    Fighting Irish
    Trojans
    Spartans
    Eagles
    Redskins

    To me it promotes courage, honor and spirit just as the Pittsburgh Pirates or Minnesota Vikings do. I am of Viking ancestry but do not find the Vikings offensive even though my ancestors murdered, raped, enslaved and pillaged innocent people for centuries.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    They're Americans, just like we are. They should pay taxes, just like we do.

Once accomplished, the Constitution of the United States would effectively no longer exist at least as having any power whatsoever. And THAT would be the ultimate goal of would be dictators.
    LOL.....yes....protecting minority views.....is a slipper slope....to totalitarianism....because everyone knows......totalitarianism is ALL ABOUT protecting the views of ethnic minorities!

    A Minority of whinnying little ****s. I've got family who are active in tribal politics, they scoff at these "offended people".

    You don't have a right not to be offended.

    Whatever, but growing up in Phoenix I often saw my friends bothered when they were called "beaners".
    But if in 100 years the term "beaner" was no longer used in a racist manner would Mexicans actually be offended? I doubt it.

    They are free to make the suit but the issue is that the media, Harry Reid and the small minority should not jump on the bandwagon and just STFU about it.

    Oh, I see, the use today of "Redskin" is not used in derogatory terms.

    Clearly you love saying that word. It's not the first time on this thread. I'm sensing something here.
