An immature nickname we give to a woman having a meltdown in public, who has been filmed by some shit weasel who is so petty he/she feels it’s their duty to broadcast their personal squabbles to the world (bonus points if you can craft a race narrative out of the footage, or tie her to conservative politics).

game meat replied to the topic Democrats Urged to Reject Latest GOP Attempt to Hold Social Security 'Hostage' in the forum General Discussion 3 days ago
In theory, Graham has no power here and is in no position to make demands. What happens here is 100% up to the democrats.
If the democrats “let” the GOP hold ss hostage, what is actually happening in reality is that the democrats will be the ones holding ss hostage.
game meat replied to the topic How America Lost Its Commitment to the Right to Vote in the forum General Discussion 3 days ago
Democrats currently control everything and can pass anything they choose. Period.
Remember when the greatest threat to voting rights was voter id laws, and how it would be the end of democracy as we know it if the republicans got their way on that one? You know, back in the olden times of the late 2010s, a time we can only experience today by…[Read more]
game meat replied to the topic Hunter Biden's Art Work Selling For Up To $500k (Secular Talk) in the forum Multimedia 1 week ago
I’m almost certain I’ve seen it at home goods, propped up against a bust of George Washington, on sale for $19.99.
The bottom one seems especially off-putting, hideous even. Barf…
Admittedly, I’m a terrible judge of art like this and can only go by the reflexive reaction such works produce. I’ve never understood the appeal of this stuff. I…[Read more]
game meat replied to the topic Trump Sues Facebook, YouTube And Twitter For Alleged Censorship in the forum Latest Breaking News 2 weeks ago
But we do not (typically) publish our phone calls, and “publish’ is the key word here.
The problem with these social media companies is they get all the benefits of being a publisher (they can ban anyone they want on a whim), without any of the downsides (they’re not legally responsible for what people publish on their platforms).
They have the…[Read more]
Nyc has 8 million people, and it is not a state. However, since they are a part of New York state, they do have 27 house seats. If all of this was really about representation, it would probably be an easier to treat DC as any other city and make it a part of Maryland, which would give them representation from those senators and whatever number of…[Read more]
But only because the lack of standards has led to it not having much credibility. If you can bomb people and start wars and get a peace prize, then any world leader is as deserving as any other world leader. I feel that it has become more of a vanity award than anything else, just our elites fellating each other.
game meat replied to the topic AOC Calls Out “Racist and Colonial” Cannabis Policy in Olympic Games in the forum General Discussion 2 weeks ago
I think this rule is brain dead stupid. Now is as good a time as any to scrap it. I see no earthly reason why there is any need to hold off until next time. Besides, it is a part of the larger issue that drug tests shouldn’t even test for weed anymore.
But leave it to AOC to dumb this down into another woke off; she’s nothing if not predictable,…[Read more]
Democrats always do the best with the youngest voting bloc, and they do the worst with the oldest. This always leads to pundits proclaiming that the gop is on its last legs, that the new generation is more “liberal” or whatever, and that the republicans won’t be able to ever win again by *insert arbitrary date.*
Even Reagan didn’t win the under…[Read more]

Her mother just died. I’m sure she knew the rules, but people don’t always make rational decisions while in a state of grief. Based on that and the fact that in takes a lot of discipline and dedication to compete in sports at a high level (which may have been all for nothing in her case), I can sympathize with her plight. Considering she used it…[Read more]
It’s interesting to watch these today. Knowing what we know now, these bland 1980’s ads seem darkly ironic. Having a grinning Bill Cosby tell you to “Have a Coke and a smile” is no longer forgettable corporate cheese, but is now well crafted gallows humor that borders on the terrifying. Context is…[Read more]
game meat replied to the topic This video segment is a really good example of why I dislike Kyle Kulinski – in the forum General Discussion 3 weeks ago
There’s this WWE aspect to the “job” that most of them seem to revel in. Alliances are made and broken, rivalries boil and then dissipate, gossip ensues, personal grievances are on full display for the entertainment of the audience, etc.
Part of it is that you’d have to have an enormous ego and a big appetite for attention to get into that sort…[Read more]
game meat replied to the topic “Defund the police” is a completely rational policy prescription. Political pundits don’t care. in the forum General Discussion 3 weeks ago
However,”defund the police” is the worst slogan ever used in human history. The fact that this article was written is evidence of this. Accept that this is a loser, and call it something else. Literally ANYTHING!
But no one should feign shock when calls to defund the police promotes debate on defunding the police rather than diving right in to a…[Read more]
game meat replied to the topic Seventeen-year-old gunned down by police in Lonoke County, Arkansas in the forum Latest Breaking News 3 weeks ago
But there are tons of these, and they never do. In fact they go to great lengths to ignore this aspect of police brutality. Why? The entire narrative is based on the absurd assumption that George Floyd, Michael Brown, etc., would definitely be alive if they were white. That’s demonstrably false (there are plenty incidents, equal in their…[Read more]
The crazy is in full force and has to run its course.
The US left would have been far better off sticking to the aspirational goals of color blindness and egalitarianism. Let the right try to justify their flavor of identity politics out of nothing, rather than justifying it for them. The greatest tragedy is that it was an unforced error.
To put…[Read more]
And that is what people who oppose this would say, and they’d be right, of course. If it were nationalized, it would also be managed very poorly, but that is an inherent characteristic of management. There’s no escaping that fatal flaw.
And by this I mean we should definitely nationalize most of these companies. At least we will then have a s…[Read more]
“Slavery was a choice.”

This whole thing seems like a classic overcorrection, and it somehow manages to be even more historically inaccurate than the most romanticized version of Lincoln and co. that it lambasts.
…is really all I hope for in these situations. Of course, that expectation can often leave one disappointed. Such is life.
I read these bike tips out of curiosity because I’ve never heard that it’s safer for bikes to stay in the car lane as a general rule, but that doesn’t seem to be what it says. I think these tips are good advice. The people…[Read more]
And spot on.
As a group, they’re not my favorite people.
Where I live, it is very congested, but there are no bike lanes. However, the sidewalks and the shoulder of the road are usually perfectly adequate to accommodate a bicycle. I’m sorry, but the guys who insist of riding in the middle of street at less than half the speed limit, and then refuse to get out…[Read more]
