    Lot of 14-year-old kids got shot in Chicago this year, too. And other 14-year-olds were the ones doing the shooting.

    I doubt they were shooting over the ability to attend school.

    Does it really matter why any 14-year-old kid anywhere gets shot?

    Would it be too much to ask that we NOT conflate the entire Muslim faith with the Taliban and their fanatic interpretation?

    How about we do that when posters around here stop calling all Republicans racists?

    Well, I think that was cleared up yesterday. In the end, there was nobody who said all Republicans are racist; just a number of us who firmly believe that the GOP panders to racists and solicits their votes in a particularly cynical way.

    When you get branded a racist because of some peckerwood politician from a state you don't even fucking live in, yeah, you tend not to tolerate that too much.
