Speaking of shows recently watched, I highly recommend a documentary called Above and Beyond. About American fighter pilots in 1948 who risked prison and loss of citizenship to defend the fledgling Israeli state from annihilation at the hands of its Arab neighbors.
Especially compelling are the interviews with the surviving pilots (most of whom were still in their 20s when the fit hit the shan). They’re all dudes you’d give your eye teeth to have beers and shoot the breeze with. There’s a fairly surprising cameo. I won’t tell you who it is; you’ll have to watch it yourself. On Netflix. Or was, when I watched it a month or two ago.
Get your knickers in a twist, issue a physical threat. Get called on it, and backpedal with the lamest of possible excuses.
The time has come to write you off as the malignant punk you've become.
Although to be fair, the kid in Missouri has inspired some personal courage of my own that has been lacking until now. I have been miserably hoarding a secret truth, and now it is time to unburden myself so the real me can escape this savage prison and rejoin humanity - liberated from the brutality of fraudulent social constructs.
I know this will come as a shock, and I am hoping against hope that you will be supportive and loving.
I now self-identify as a 6’7” athletic prodigy, with the most accurate outside jump shot ever observed. Anyone who doesn’t lobby the Lakers to put me into their starting lineup is a hateful bigot.
Thank you for your support.
Oh wait - my favorite recent example is this kid, who says using the girls' lockeroom is right, since he now self identifies as a girl. Everyone will just have to ignore his penis & testicles as he's lathering up. The LBGT grievance industry is foursquare behind him, of course. Anyone who disagrees is a hateful bigot.
'It's not really my fault, I ride the bus.'
Threats, Rhys? Seriously?
You use to be a reasonably thoughtful cat, once upon a time. Not so much anymore.
Rhys's lip service is every bit as effective as Preezy's, DiFi's, Bloomberg's, et al. Their only obstacle is the 2nd amendment. The procedure for removing that roadblock is readily available & clearly spelled out in Article V of the Constitution.
Until they pursue that remedy, all their braying is just noise.
Methinks Lewi may struggle with distinguishing sarcasm from endorsement.
Absolutely. All lives matter.
Lewi paraphrases me (accurately): "Preezy's goal is mandatory confiscation. He'll never offer anything more than lip service."
And then opines: "Have it both ways, doubles your opportunity to insult."
I must have missed something. What on earth is insulting about that? 'Having it both ways' suggests a duplicity that I also don't see.
