Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate.com and Firefox

A little update on my problem….I had pretty much given up after I had downloaded chrome switched internet browsers and tried everything else i could think of and still couldn’t get the problem resolved but a friend at work told me it was probably my modem that was the problem ,
I actually have a motorola modem that is external to my laptop and tried as he suggested to hit the small reset button on the back of it , I hadn’t even realized there was a reset button on the back but anyways it fixed the problem so fire fox is running normal now.

You don’t need to be in clan to be respected,
before the clans were around the old pros like Agozira, janthepolish,orangecounty,chinablue,gummysnacks,almzxn,aguspal were never part of any clan but were held in very high regard indeed.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Interracial Dating.....

Originally posted by Zuberi:

I am a white male living in Mississippi, and am proudly dating a girl who is part black and part latino. I have been catching hell about it. I’ve even been threatened a couple of times. What are your thoughts about this? Is it just Mississippi, or is it this bad in other areas?

I can’t speak for all white men , I can only speak for myself but I do have a twinge of racism in me when I see a black girl with a white guy.
When I was high school I had a lot of friends who were white girls and started dating black guys ….The white girls were completely brain washed by the black guys to hating white men to the point that later on the same said white girls who had been my friends wouldn’t even speak to a white man.
I think this is why some people have a negative attitude towards this interracial dating as they worry that that the person has been ‘brainwashed’ against their own group.
This is just my personal opinion about interracial dating,
I have dated as many colored girls as I have white girls and have never had bad experience of anyone saying anything but that is just my experience.

But: Racism will always exist. :(

Yes, I think that this is very true , as children we pick on anyone who is different (fat kids- kids with glasses-kids with freckles) anything that is different about each other ,
I have always wondered why as children we act this way and attack those who are different.

This is a little off subject but…..
When I was in kindergarten ,I had a class that was half black and half white but I never once thought about skin color but there was a kid with red hair and as everyone in the class had brown hair so we made fun of him and picked on him a lot :(
I would love to see a study on why kids bully and pick on kids who look different than them.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is any group in America truely oppressed?

Originally posted by Laxaria:

Before I step into this, could I ask for a definition of what do you exactly mean by oppressed? One could be oppressed if their stances are not heard. A group of people could feel oppressed because they are not listened to, ignored or discriminated against. Another group of people could be oppressed because they have no civil rights.

I’m not saying that dictionary definitions are insufficient, but rather, it would be good to know what specific framework do you mean.

As with any one person expressing their opinion on controversial issues ,my thoughts might not be the same as anyone elses but these three qualifications seem like they are right.

To be truely oppressed you cannot have a voice that will be heard or political power for your group and you must face discrimination in your life without the resources to fight against it.

This means that jews/christians cannot say that they are truely oppressed because the Republicans only want to promote/cater to judeo/christian beliefs and groups .

The Democrates only want to promote/cater to wemon and minority groups (well ,really anyone who is not a SWCM),

The Striaght white men, to me at least are the group that run/own everything in America , they don’t have a collective voice or real group fighting for them but they do seem to have a majority share of the media .

Lax ,please post what you think qualifies as being truely oppressed as I could get a better sense of what others view as being ‘truely oppressed’

I’d say the gay black atheists probably have it the worst.

I have to dis-agree with the black part ,they have very powerful lobbying groups in washington and America seems to bend over backwards to be respectful to them (especially the media and hollywood)

I had never thought about an atheist running for president, I could never see that happening.

This is a question that needs be asked by someone.

It seems like everyone in America is a victim based on there civil rights.

I hear from anyone and everyone that their group is the one that is getting screwed the worst .
Weither it is striaght,white, christian men saying that its politically correct to blame everything on them or catholic people saying that the press corp is portraying them in a negative light.

To me there seems to be one final frontier in the civil rights crusade and thats gay marriage.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Are Video Games Bad for Children?

Tough topic to reply too as theres two sides to every coin., especially this one -→ On one hand I blame the high crime rate in black youth on thier role models in music but I don’t blame the video games.

I have seen alot of reports on the ultra violent kiddie shows and video games that japanese kids have but they have a low crime rate for their country.

I also think thats it’s alot easier to blame a corporation for hurting our children rather than realizing that parents need to take more of an active role in their kids life, parents buy video games for their kids and they need to know what their buying if its ok or not. It seems the same with the TV or taking the kiddies out to watch a movie.

I don’t have kids but I have already decided that I going to get them a game console (wii fit?) if I ever do, I would much rather have them at the house playing video games than worry about them cruising around town and getting into trouble.

And wasn’t there a reply or two to this thread from the self proclaimed troll SuperGues_t? What happened to them?

Did Super lose his temper, have a couple of posts deleted, and maybe even have a stroke? We can always dream, can’t we?

Wow , that was quick… 1 day goes bye and already “Lost” is back in troll form. nice!

Yes, you are right! you say its not a racial slur therefore it is not a racial slur.

Also calling a latino person a ‘spic’ is not a racial slur because “spic and span” is the term I hear for this word on TV

A greaser is a term for hispanics, hymie was a character on ‘Get Smart’
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Get_Smart

’ and I have not heard the word nigger on TV ,it is always referred to as the N-word

When have you heard the word nigger on TV ? what reality do you live in?

Topic: Serious Discussion / "N Word" Versus Other Racial Slurs

I have noticed that racial slurs against blacks do get censored on TV but hate words like spic, cracker, honky,nip ,wop,chink,greaser, vanilla, hymie,kike,retard,raghead,zipperhead ,gook ect, ect. don’t get edited out.

However to the OP you have to remember that the NAACP is the most powerful lobbying group in Washington DC and the ‘BLACK CACAUS’ has alot of pull too so most Businesses don’t want to be boycotted or sued., its not so much the internet having a double standard as to Washington DC having one.

lol , anyone can pretend to be anyone else.

besides even if you were once lostone , soulreaper or who ever you are now we have heard this song before and choosing a troll name like supragues_t doesn’t help us to believe.

Over time you could be forgiven if this is not just another troll account but it will hard to do.

I don’t think a mini-tsunami would do the trick

The ship that you see at ground zero (in front of the blast to the right) is the battleship arkansas it was built in 1909 and it survived the blast and following tsunami, It was sunk later on in following tests.A very surprising amount of ships when tested survived these test blasts.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Unions good or bad ?

I think that 100 years ago unions were a force of good but in today world of goverment regulation they seem like an dinosaur group.

I have never had a problem with unions in a free society but we don’t really live in a free society anymore , as the goverment regulates just about anything and everything and controls most of our lives.

This story I think points out how much of a joke the unions have become,
http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_upshot/20100812/en_yblog_upshot/california-workers-boycott-the-expendables-because-of-arnold-cameo

If workers go on strike because they want more money ,I think they company should be able to fire them.

Unions seem to be choking off the job market and driving up the un-employment rates as most large companies have unions of some kind within them.

Also a side note ,does anyone really believe that the organized mob uses unions to blackmail companies ? It seems like a very far fetched idea.

CNN isnt that bad…

You are joking right.
A company started by the great left winger Ted Turner , when John Kerry ran for president at the democratic nominational convention hall , the DNC hosted up a 100’ by 50’ banner showing two hands one with CNN on it and one with DNC wrote on it shaking hands.(why they didn’t just show a full blown a reach around I’ll never know)

About the typo fun …..For someone who dishes it out ,you sure are thin skinned.

Good, that should railroad this bak to the matter at hand. To be absolutely true to the topic: Yes, I believe the AP spins everything to a left- wing view, and that the same is true of the Nobel whatchamathingy. Where I don’t particularly agree is on how much it matters. Most people are smart enough to look past the spin, and those who aren’t… Don’t really matter…

You are a nut job because you mis-spelled the word “back” :P
also IT DOES MATTER!!!
Later on people will read this post by the AP and consider it to be the truth.
