You forgot to mention the role Arabs played in the slave trade.

Why do we talk about the crusades and slavery like they had nothing to do with other races?

huh?

We can't excuse our bad behavior just because someone else did the exact same thing. The blood is on our hands and we put it there all by ourselves. Besides, aren't Europeans and Americans supposed to be more "civilized" than the Arabs?

We don't need to talk about what the other races did. WE did this heinous evil on our own volition, just to run an economy and make scads of money and we did it all by forcing a whole other race of people to leave their homeland, suffer horrible living and working conditions or even death and all without any of the economic benefits that were afforded their masters, white Europeans and Americans. In the grand scheme of things, doesn't matter what the Arabs did. What matters is what WE did.

so, folks say stupid thing. Even a cursory glance at the real world, even in the MOST extreme liberal, anti-Trump sources shows that empathy and compassion are OVERFLOWING. Citing a handful of asswipes(sort of like you do with antifa) to counter that reality is pretty freaking stupid and divisive, don't you think? Or, do you think?

oh, and a VERY LIBERAL chef friend(and former first responder in Chicago) is en route tomorrow to feed responders for the forseeable future in the Texas regions affected. Anyone who wishes to contribute to the effort can PM me.

Nope, and as I've surmised, anyone trying to grab that cat without wearing Kevlar gloves and full body armor would be in for a hell of a shredding. I've tried to pick up frightened cats before (I'm an idiot) and they sometimes take extreme exception to your idea of "help". :wink:

Many are also wondering what happened to this snarling fighter, Olson had this ending to offer:

Most of the people had been evacuated and the cat was in no mood to be messed with so he is probably still on his own.

They've obviously never owned a cat or a dog. Come on, look at those faces and tell me you don't see either a dog's remorseful cringe or a cat's self-satisfied smugness. :lol:

I've just plain turned off the TV, probably for days at this rate. It's nothing but wall to wall coverage of Irma. The networks even dragged in their A listers to sit there for 24/7 and pontificate about nothing but gloom and doom and about how everyone should leave the area, except all those stupid reporters standing or falling in the middle of all that mess of course. It's like the rest of the country and the world don't even exist. Trump could fire Mueller or start WWIII with NK and no one would know for days. However, I will be fasinated to see whether 9/11 coverage or Irma takes over the new cycle tomorrow. What a choice. Stupid east coast-centric news media. :roll:

Gee, I wonder why the media would focus on a major natural disaster hitting the continental US which has caused millions of evacuations and will most likely lead to tens of billions in damage?

Well, covering the disaster is fine. It's a sad thing to have happen and people need to know what's going on. However, wallpapering over every news show to the exclusion of everything else that's going on in the world with a bunch of pompous jerks standing right in the middle the storm telling us stuff we've already heard ad infinitum and acting like they're riding a carnival ride is ridiculous and morbid. They're only doing it because they think it gets them ratings, not for any kind of altruistic reasons. And yes, I've actually been through a hurricane, a destructive hailstorm and several large earthquakes, all with property damage. The press looming around like vultures is not being respectful or helpful to the victims at all. You'll also notice that the recent 8.1 megaquake in Mexico hardly garnered any media attention. Why? Because it was in Mexico, not in New York or Florida where the stupid press lives.

No, I just bitch when I'm constantly spoon fed the same thing 24/7 on almost every news channel the cable company sells me. I mean, it's not like there's the rest of the world, or even the rest of the country, I need to know about. Sure, I could sift through all the chaff on the internet, but sometimes I like to just sit back and watch a curated news show that contains a little variety. But hey, with the media all based on the East Coast, it seems we get stuck with their self-important localized bullshit even though a lot of us don't live anywhere near there. All I have to say is ★■◆● the New York media and the high horse they rode in on.
