Politics aside, that is indeed a knee-jerk travesty.

P.S. feat, I'm feeling a bit guilty about yesterday. No hard feelings, yes?

F*** the "controversy".

"... Has become a symbol of slavery and racism..."

"Has become" 'Cause everybody blows with the MSM PC.

How 'bout we turn our gaze to the red, white and blue stars and stripped symbol of oppression and conquering. Take it down! Sign the potition to get Wal Mart to quit selling it on Budweiser shirts! It offends me!

If that's true, we should ban rainbows too. Those colors in that configuration 'offends' people too.

Oh to be validated in our offenses.

Pale Horse, don't dare forget double rainbows. Some people are offended by same-sex marriages.

What's the over/under on this thread's lifespan?

Shifted some posts here, so the remembrance thread doesn't get bogged down in politics.

"RIP [Insert Political Commentary here]"


Cute...real cute. God forbid we might discuss with light ribbing the appropriateness of taking someone else's copyrighted, intellectual property that was created solely to entertain the masses and use them to further express modern socio-politcal povs that have nothing to do with their source material.

I didnt much care for Pale Horse's outright finger-pointing in the Jurassic World forum, but, eh...whatever.

The mods here could use some tact and the private message feature to help make their points without getting on their high-horses armed with public shaming, but, eh...whatever.

Pale Horse...it's cool.

Attila, sorry to bog down anything that might distract from another booming Indiana Jones news day. Go **** yourself.

*Waiting for The Raven to eliminate this thread and post an official, long winded apology for having offended someone*

Since you've just been riffed by both of my esteemed colleagues, I almost feel obligated to complete the set and remind you that these kind of complaints should be made in the Feedback section.

But... nah. As you were, people.
