    Probably a freeper slur, I wonder how the plan to move them all to an island is going.

    No, its a derogatory Republican term that became ubiquitous, forcing Democrats to pretend that they were fine with it after previously complaining about its usage.

    I hope that the next term which this happens to and becomes official policy is the one which begins with an s ends with an m and has ocialis in between.

It does not mean we were deprived of something that we were otherwise entitled to. The thing to take from this is the understanding of whose interests are aligned with your own. Keep it focused on your scope of control.
    Yeah, my own scope of control, which I got.

    But I'm sort of moving beyond that with what I am pursuing, which is the interest of those aligned with my own.

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Roberts is younger, I think he views himself as the benevolent monarch sort. Whatever the fuck it is, I'll take it
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Yeah true. But only because the Republicans never would have accepted the earlier bill because it was deemed too socialist.

    Medicare has done nothing for me. The only people that can get medicare are women with children, and people with serious disabilities.
