    I have three daughters, and everytime they say "like" in their sentence, I yell "LIKE!" while they're talking. It's been VERY effective. They may or may do it around their friends, but they know how to turn it off when they have to at least because I don't hear it from them much anymore.
    I don't think it's much of a problem when people talk that way. What's worrying these days is when kids use internet-speak in their writing...
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I highly doubt that everyone who posts a rant on YouTube expects it to go viral and become a national sensation. Most of these kinds of videos receive less than 100 views.

    I can't. This is important.

    Maybe these children ought to go back to writing their insipid rants in a diary, or when they really need to blow off steam, scream into a pillow.

    Someday the fools will catch up to the understanding that these self-indulgent diatribes are there for the world to see, in perpetuity.

    When it's as blatantly racist as that, you can expect it to go viral. That's all i'm sayin.

    Universities aren't about higher learning anymore, but who can pay. Most undergrad programs cater to the masses now. It's not until you get into 4th year or your masters that people actually care about what you think.

    LOL

    How do girls that speak like this get into college?

    Happy now?

    But seriously, liblady, this has to bug you, too. UCLA is supposedly a fine institution, and she sounds like a flunkie carhop from Sonic Drive-in. And it's so prevalent. Not the dudes are that much better, but still.

    My theory is that kids have become excellent at taking tests, but are severely lacking in communication skills these days compared to days past.

    Death threats not okay, of course.

    I have to say I've been pretty shocked overall at the racist jokes that have been making the rounds, even by well-known celebrities. I mean, really, with a country devastated by one of the greatest combination of disasters ever... is that really funny? Or is it just funny because it only affects Asians?

    Really took me aback, because I still get a stomach ache every time I see replays of that horror on tv. How anyone could get a laugh off of that is beyond me.

    Yeah, Whoopie, you mean-spirited ass. I'm talking about you.

    That's a very good analysis. I concur with your findings.
