Things that make me not want to live on this planet any more.

#1 Post by tlynn78 » Fri Nov 12, 2021 5:38 pm

I mean, besides the obvious.

Hand to God, just had an individual in my office ask, with a straight face, "Would I be better off hiring an attorney, or would a lawyer be better?"

TBF if he hired a lawyer he would have an attorney
Suitguy is not bitter.

feels he represents the many educated and rational onlookers who believe that the hysterical denouncement of lay scepticism is both unwarranted and counter-productive

The problem, then, is that such calls do not address an opposition audience so much as they signal virtue. They talk past those who need convincing. They ignore actual facts and counterargument. And they are irreparably smug.

Why would you assume "an individual" identifies as male?

Because "were they" is dissonant.

The appraisal lady that was training me in made it very clear that she was married at the time to a scum sucking bottom feeder er I mean attorney and not a lawyer. She corrected me very firmly when I referred to him as a "lawyer."

BTW-do you have another planet as an option to live on?

There's a planet that's populated entirely by robots. It's much more peaceful than Earth.

Your allusions in a previous matter leave me with no alternative other than 'no comment,' per both my lawyer and my attorney.

Because it's liberals legislating use of pronouns, not conservatives, duh!
So I guess by that standard that conservatives get a free pass on anything they say.

How about Texas House Bill 3979 that recently became law, which forbids instruction that causes students to “feel discomfort, guilt, anguish or any other form of psychological distress on account of the individual’s race or sex.”

Do you not even know what you posted?
"Anything that makes a student uncomfortable [on account of the individual’s race or sex]".

Are you intentionally ignoring yourself?

You think it's OK to teach that black men are less intelligent and less moral that white men?
