For those of you that have been there and those that have not, the wood used inside the cathedral was magnificent. If I remember correctly, it was oak that was used to make the massive support beams. These were HUGE trees that were harvested to build this structure and according to accounts, they used the equivalence of 56 acres of trees to build the cathedral.

To try and recreate these MASSIVE support beams would require finding massive trees.


Well, Trump to the rescue.

The money already raised by the French will cover the cost of the rebuild three times over. I think a half a billion has already been pledged-- and probably more. But they DO need proper materials---- and there's only one place to get trees large enough to build these support beams--- california.

Trump should commit to allowing the French to come here and select some trees for harvesting and promise to make a generous donation towards the forestry service that will replant trees that the French "borrowed".

This would accomplish a few things:
1. Trump gets to help the French in a way that would endear him to anyone with a pulse.
2. The environmentalists would freak out thus making themselves look REALLY bad---
3. Returning the church to its former form would be on par with the gift the French gave us in the form of a torch holding lady.
4. Some lib somewhere would step on his/her weenie and would be eaten by everyone else leaving one less lib in the world.

Thoughts?

Should the term "toxic masculinity" be regarded as hate speech?
Fightin TX Aggie 1:32p
The stupid-du-jour is that a razor company is now running an ad campaign to fight "toxic masculinity."

How in 2019 can that concept be a thing?

With any group other than men, that phrase would be regarded as bigotry.

Wikipedia defines prejudice as:

Quote:
Prejudice is an affective feeling towards a person or group member based solely on that person's group membership (tribal behavior). The word is often used to refer to preconceived, usually unfavorable, feelings towards people or a person because of their...gender...or other personal characteristics. Masculinity refers to the characteristics of males. Throwing a modifier ("toxic") in front of the word doesn't change this.

Think about it.

Someone who says, "I don't mind black people, I just hate [n-words]" is a bigot.

Someone who says, "I don't mind Hispanics, I just hate [w-words"] is a bigot.

Same with Jews and Zionists.

You don't get to assign a negative characteristic to a group and then decide which group members don't fall into your preference.

"Toxic masculinity" is the exact same thing. If you say, "Men are fine, but toxic masculinity is a problem," you're a bigot.

You don't need to attach masculinity to it at all. Say you're against sexist behavior. I agree. I'm with you. Say you're against bullying. Again, I agree - no problem.

But when you link sexism and bullying inherently to masculinity (ie, men), you're being a bigot.

One more contrast...

Imagine Playtex running an ad campaign targeted at women who get grouchy during or leading up to their menstrual periods.

Are some women less patient, more intemperate, meaner and angrier during this time? Sure.

Imagine Playtex running ads telling women to be better. To overcome their natural *****iness that comes with PMS.

That wouldn't fly for even a minute. But "toxic masculinity" is a-ok.

They are just shaming you as white male for the sins of other white males. You're guilty by association because you're white and you have male genitals. (Am I allowed to say ***** on here or does that get filtered?)

So your ***** is the root of all their perceived evil. Now if your ***** wasn't white, let's say it was black, then it would be seen as a panacea and something for your white wife to worship. Oh ya, it's already happening in movie narratives and all over the TV industry. White man bad, POC good. The pron industry was waaaaaaaay out in front of this year's ago. So much so that white actresses that did NOT engage in sexual scenes with a POC were shamed via the net to the point that many quit and some actually killed themselves.

Ya--- that's where we are at.

A little context first. We live in California so our kids go to a private Christian school. The reason we pay for a private school is we want a different world view than is being taught in the public schools. His teacher is new this year and came from a public school.

They utilize a teaching model called the harkness model where it's required to participate in group discussions and if you don't you get points taken off. No problem with that. They are doing a unit on slavery and she asked my son if he felt any sense of responsibility or white privilege because of what was done to the slaves by white people. We had discussed this question at home and I told him to answer no because I didn't do anything to black people so I have nothing to feel guilty about. She said his answer "is trying to cause unnecessary attention from the teacher" then she called him out in the hall after class and grilled him about why he doesn't feel any sense of responsibility. Keep in mind this is 8th grade. If it was college I'd have no problem with asking him to defend his position. She basically threatened him with the phrase this is going to cause "unnecessary attention" once again.

We have a parent conference today. Not a great way to start off the first week of school.

sidenote: the other kids say she wears lowcut shirts, short skirts and tries way too hard so I doubt she lasts very long at the school anyway.

If a "tape" of Donald Trump is released where he uses racial slurs (specifically "the n-word") to disparage a person of color, how would you react?

The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Alabama, the "the south" of the south
« on: November 09, 2017, 12:41:43 PM »
Republican senate nominee roy Moore (who is on record that he thinks homosexual activities should be illegal) is accused of rough ridin' underage girls while in his 30's. The Washington post story has 30 sources, so it's fairly well researched. The ballots have already been printed and it's too late to replace him.

It's going to be pretty lol to see what the outcome will be, obviously he's still favored to win despite the child rough ridin'.

Kansas State Football / stamina problems heading into OU game? (conspiracy?)
« on: September 11, 2017, 07:04:40 PM »
so i'm looking at our schedule today and it seems like it's going to be super pud until OU and i'm kind of worried that the cats might not have the starters play a full game until OU.  you guys know me, i love blowout wins as much as the next fella but i think we might be kind of "handicapping" (for lack of a better word) ourselves by demolishing every team by 50 or 60 points and only playing the starters for 2-3 quarters.

now i don't want to sound like an infowars freak or something but i think it's just a little too convenient that the schedulemakers laid out the schedule as it is just by chance.  i think they know the cats are going to only have 1 or 2 games where the starters play all 4 quarters and they are crossing their duplicitous little fingers hoping OU is able to edge out the cats because of this disadvantage.

anyway, that's just my  :th_twocents:, appreciate thoughts from anyone else about this subject
