Re: Nick Sandmann sues Wapo for 250 Mil

Seems like the company line, which we can gather from the overly repetitive use of the word “minor,” is that that is the distinguishing factor so Fox News et al can continue spewing that Sandy Hook was a fraud and Seth Rich was killed by Hillary Clinton ... which certainly passes any rational sniff ...

Re: Nick Sandmann sues Wapo for 250 Mil

More posts with idle threats and not a single explanation of exactly what was “libelous” or “slanderous.”

Again, not surprised.

(Keyboard warrior, eh? How cute. Review the posts above ... seems like you can’t post without making threats against a whole group of people.)

Get a Board Warning, Ask Why=Automatic Ban

In a very active thread this evening regarding the NZ shooting, a poster made a series of posts that could be described universally as inappropriate (others may use the terms Islamaphobic or race-baiting, and I would agree), and I received a canned cut/copy/paste board warning that said “Debate the ...

Re: Barcelo Hotel Group in Spain

Not necessarily but it seems strange when you won't say why you need it. Was your stay at one of their hotels so horrific that you feel the need to complain to him or is it something more sinister like blackmail or stalking? WELL, bagoldex, the messages will inevitably be deleted for very good reas...

Re: Christchurch (New Zealand) Mosque Shooting

Well, in Islam, those who died while upholding their religion is considered to be martyrs. And that includes those who are killed while in the midst of Friday prayers. Well ... sure. But the English connotation of the English word “martyrs” isn’t exactly positive. I’m sure it’s not the same in Arab...

Re: Christchurch (New Zealand) Mosque Shooting

Ironically, rather than advancing the case of white supremacy what those terrorists had done is to elevate the victims to become martyrs, as they died while answering God's call through Friday prayers. Erm ... not sure that translates very well. Well, in Islam, those who died while upholding their ...

Re: United HQ Lease Extension

Great news for Chicago and United employees. Happy they're staying in the city instead of some sprawlburb outside Houston. It puts them in a much better position to attract highly skilled young workers, too. That’s a myth. Millennials are leaving Chicago in droves and Houston is attracting far more...

Um ... OK.

Preaching restraint with regard to grounding the aircraft, then proposing that airlines (or countries) who have selectively banned the use lose overflight rights for a year.
