Meh. For all his intelligence he never got out of provincial Southern cowboy worship bull****. He puts up an interesting conversation but his conclusions are always based in pseudo-Ayn Rand social darwinism that pretends to not be edgelord certified. If this weren't a conversation so steeped in race then it would be more interesting to have him in it, but he loves race baiting too much to not be obvious about it.

Brings to mind the Arab Spring phenomenon.

But this just happened 10 years ago and nothing changed. Hell, we even went so far as to elect a president who's cut from the same cloth as Richard Fuld.

No it didn't. That was a white people depression. There were no bread lines and dollar bills didn't become toilet paper. Don't be dumb.

Atlanta boy, three, 'beaten to death over a cupcake' - BBC News US

Quote:
Police say Kejuan Mason sneaked the cupcake from the kitchen while at home with Glenndria and Lashirley Morris.
According to the indictment, Lashirley beat the child with a baseball bat while her sister Glenndria, his legal guardian, spanked him with her hand.
He died from blunt force trauma to his head and his torso, say medics.

Florida’s ban on ex-felons voting is unconstitutional and biased, federal judge rules

Nice. I don't see it making it past the SCOTUS though unfortunately.

Oh come on! Seriously? This is the name of a place?

It's Groundhog Day. Spectators gather at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, as Phil the groundhog makes his prediction on how long winter will last.
