  •  I have decided that at this point, I'm done trying (4+ / 0-)

    to argue with, debate, convince, etc, those with their hair on fire. They are regular like clock work, and it's just not worth the energy. You can't make an argument, or even try to debate. So. . .

    I'll just wait until it's all over with. Then I won't even point and laugh, I'll just go on about my day. I've found it's much healthier for me and my stress levels.

    I rarely even read the diaries about the latest outrage, either for or against, anymore.

    I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

      the cohort of the left-side (mostly Boomer) political community for which the primary motivation is to feel self-righteous moral outrage.

      I'm not talking to or about those people. They're not really about public policy at all. They just use the news to masturbate.

      Have a flagon and discuss the news of the day at the sign of the Green Dragon, or hear me roar on Twitter @MarkGreenFuture
