    yeah. you've said it. that's all i was making a point about. did you vote that you never said it?

    basically...it's true. the word was never offensive before someone SAID it was offensive.

    Yes because NONE of the other selections works. I don't use it no matter what.

    For the purposes of humor, I feel that nothing is truly taboo. To make a joke, for satire, for biting social commentary... Sometimes a really hate-filled word is the most suitable. Especially for satire.

    Chappelle show is a perfect example.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    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.
