    Great! Seeing as Barack Obama is not Daniel Snyder and has neither shown the inclination nor the willingness to force Snyder to actually change the name I see no reason to make a big deal out of it.
    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.

    Because dealing with problems and voicing opinions on the Redskins name are totally mutually exclusive

    And there's so much ammo for paraphernalia GUN items.
    Think of how they could indoctrinate their children young as well as their lemmings.
    If you use a 30-clip, how would you have to score in football to get that number.
    Home-school would come through here. For right answer, Free t-shirt with front and back pictures
    with the actual ARABIC numerals next to the many varieties of clips.

    Do you always allow a few to dictate what words you can speak and what their definitions are ?

    You have a better idea what it was like living in Nazi Germany or Stalin's Soviet Union than I do.

    The poll needs a third option. "I don't give a rat's tit if he does or if he doesn't."
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Any time liberals get involved with anything, they always turn it into a big deal.

    Yowza, going full Godwin with a little Red Scare action to go along with it. Well done.

    You're going to have to do better than that.

    Uh, who's the one who created the thread bitching about it? Not a "liberal," that's for sure.

    You aren't concerned with having rat tits ?

    I would probably go postal if I had rat tits.

    BTW: Are rat tits covered under Obamacare ?

    1. rat tits

    Rat tits usually occur on a person who is of a ratty nature. They are breasts that are of a pinkish colour, abnormally saggy and slightly wrinkly.

    2. rat tits
    Hairy nipples that can be grown specially on people who have strangely compatible rat features. They are hairy, flea infested and difficuly to maintain

    Urban Dictionary: rat tits
