@zaryia: why are you spamming the same links over and over?

You're going to have to PM a moderator instead of crying to me.

I'm going to link them any time anyone says something astonishingly stupid like Trump's tweets were not racist. Even racists disagree with him. Even Federal Guidelines disagree with him. Worldwide condemnation.

He lost that one. And badly.

He doesn't have to pm a mod. He was considerate in his request. Spamming links over and over is against the CoC.

I understand you are passionate about the subject but in spamming you are doing a disservice to your argument and stance. Please refrain from continued spamming of the links.

Okay, I'll just link the post number until they can actually refutes the facts I presented.

Which as we both know, they won't be able to :-)

That's better. Appreciate you willing to work with us. Thank you.

@RicanV: It seems like zaryia is continuously citing his sources, not "spamming links". It directly contributes to the discussion and lends him credibility when he does so.

I'm not going to play the "seems like" game. If Zaryia was citing different sources as a means of reinforcing his argument then that would be acceptable.

The initial links did contribute to the discussion and lended Zaryia credibility as to where he derived his opinion. The second, third and fourth post of the very same links did not.

I am actually a fan of citing sources and I don't think people do it enough.

Solid choices. No comment on Mandzilla or Archangel only because I haven't interacted with them.

DaVillain has actually picked up his posting (in terms of quality) over the years. Some less than stellar moments here and there but we might all be guilty of that.

Videogameninja has always been a positive poster on the site and he comes with a catchphrase which is nice.

Mogan has always been a completely level headed poster and actually encourages discussion. I don't think I have seen him troll once.

Echoing the sentiments above - Pachter is widely known as a joke to the industry. His worth is in generating buzz through his atrocious predictions. I am not sure if he does actual "analyst" work anymore.

If Starbucks really wanted to emphasize fairness in their stores they would close for additional training this time around. In not closing they are cheapening the message from their previous shutdown.

It's clear that their previous training was not as impactful as it should have been. Do they really care about improving their workforce and creating a safe and fair business or was the last shutdown just an empty gesture?

Yeah, this is kind of unfair to those police officers. But unfortunately, it also goes to show how low Americans trust the police these days, especially in certain states.

This only goes to show ONE Americans trust in police. Unless the majority of customers in that Starbucks equally voiced discomfort in police being there. I would feel comfortable in saying more Americans trust in law enforcement than those that do not without doing any research. Law Enforcement isn't the malicious evil monster that media portrays them as.

I thought the right wanted a world where you could refuse business to whoever you wanted?

The cops were already paying customers. Business had already been conducted. No company in their right mind would conduct a transaction and then ask the customer to excuse themself from the premises.

Not surprised. This is just the newest trend. Im surprised we went from: cards, latest action figures, latest gaming system, sneakers, jackets,tamagotchis, etc. to something that isn't even physical.

Is rice getting outclassed? The passed few weeks I have been eating mostly pasta and potatoes. I did have Thai food a few weeks back, but since then I haven't really eaten that much rice. Am I the only one or is this a global trend? Are they still eating rice in Asia or have they also stopped now?

Yes. Everytime someone personally stops doing something it becomes outclassed for the world. Dems the rules.
