I havent read this thread but will later when I can look at a real computer.
The other day I was talking with a guy that is in the public eye, he gives interviews and is contacted by reporters on a regular basis.
I let him know that a news station was trying to reach him so we got into the reason why they wanted to talk to him
They wanted to know his thoughts on someone. He told me that he was going to tell the reporter that "they" were socially retarded. Completely inept ..... Blah blah blah
I said, "you might wanna re-think that. A lot of people have issues with that word."
He said, "that is the only word that describes these assholes."
I said, I understand but some people will focus more on the fact that you said retarded than your point.
He said, the people that I want to understand, will understand!"
Thats all I have to say. I'm gonna read the thread because I like a good debate and I always learn something.
made me think of this quote by Dolly Parton.
I'm not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb... and I also know that I'm not blonde.
How can they say my life is not a success? Have I not for more than sixty years got enough to eat and escaped being eaten?
