Well the fact that I have never, in 34 years of managing money, had a complaint, written or verbal, or
ANY arbitration ever filed or attempted speak for itself.  You could eat your dinner off it its so clean.


Who knows? But you f*** with the wrong person. (You called me crazy. I’ll show you crazeee)

Whaaa? Eye? When have I ever called you crazy?

MAKE BOEING NOT SO GREAT AGAIN!

Quote
Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly," President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday. "Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better. Split second decisions are needed, and the complexity creates danger. All this cost for very little gain."

The Weird World of Vegan YouTube Stars Is Imploding

Last Sunday, a five-second video clip of vegan YouTuber Yovana Mendoza single-handedly brought down the luminous 28-year-old’s entire career. In it, you can see the raw food advocate, who goes by the name “Rawvana,” smiling at a restaurant in Bali as she prepares to tuck into her meal. But in an instant, the health guru’s face changes, as she realizes her friend’s camera is trained on her plate. She moves to cover it, but it’s too late. Internet sleuths watching the 10-minute vlog later would quickly deduce what Mendoza was trying to hide: a piece of fish.


“I felt like someone had died,” Mendoza told The Daily Beast. “It was one of the worst days of my life.”

In addition to showing how many ways you can repurpose the word “fish,” the incident brought another revelation to the surface: The vegan YouTube community is crumbling.

Manayunk Woman Says Arsonist Torched Her Car Because Cardboard Cutout of Trump Was Inside

A woman says a cardboard cutout of Donald Trump inside her car caused an arsonist to target her vehicle in Philadelphia’s Manayunk neighborhood early Monday morning.

Police responded to the 4200 block of Pechin Street around 3 a.m. for a report of a vehicle on fire. When they arrived they found 65-year-old Laurie Livingston’s 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier fully engulfed in flames. The Fire Marshal ruled the incident an arson.

Livingston said her car had been vandalized three times before within the past five months. During those incidents, the tires were slashed and the windshield was broken. But while she's unsure why she was targeted those previous times, she believes the latest incident was because of a cardboard cutout of President Trump that was in the front seat of her car.

“I put Donald Trump and I don’t care,” she said. "I voted for him and I have the right to say what I want to say and then last night at 3 o'clock it blew up.”

US sends Cuba $4,000 rent for the 45 sq mile lease at Guantanamo Bay, which is a small sum that makes the Cubans feel cheated.  In comparison, in 1983 the Soviets provided Cuban with $4 billion in annual economic aid, in addition to $600 million in military aid.  In retrospect Cuba and Comecon in general was a drain on USSR resources, purchasing sugar from Cuba at subsidized prices and selling oil to them at below market (deja vu with Venezuela oil to Cuba today).

I was in Manila in 2007 looking at real estate around Makati.  It's a nice upscale area dominated by Ayala (somewhat like Irvine Co here).  However the purchasing terms are usually for pre-builds (pay us first and we build) for new.  I saw some resale small condos for $50,000 back then.  Like most places, if you have money you can buy/live in nice upscale area away from poverty, where McDonalds and Starbucks have armed guards.  The people are pretty friendly and not as uptight.  At hotels you can play with the security (bomb sniffing?) dogs.  In the US if you tried to pet the guard dog the handler will yell at you.

HOWEVER, politics in PH can be deadly as many politicians are from clans with long established rivalries.  The political violence in PH can be as deadly as Iraq.


As I was reviewing the Snowflake thread I came across momopi’s post. So it contradicts Morekas statement about the Philippines. (where his parents are from, but not him)
I’m glad that you made that statement. To give a better picture of the Philippines and is not as bad as Morekas previously stated. For the record, I previously gave a favorable review of the Philippines.

Come on Morkekas made 10 posts regarding black people, 1 post regarding homophobic and 1 Hispanic posts

This is not including the conversation just topics. I feel it’s offensive and can be hurtful. TI was never like this before.

So we can't make posts pointing out how nonsensical articles/issues are on other sites? That is the point of this thread. It's not to be racist but to call out how some people overreact and call things racist/homophobic/sexist/[insert hot button adjective here]. Do you see the irony?

What about all those posts that BTB would post about Asians? Or about women? Again, I think you are using a filter here because you have an issue with morekaos.

And again, your assumption that the guys I play basketball with are black is probably more questionable.

1. I already addressed the posts by btb. (wearing a mask, birth houses, massage places) Is that offensive?
2. Playing basketball with brothers. (It can mean anything. There are a lot of people that say, “What up bro!” You took it the wrong way.) Like I previously stated to you. If you can’t say it or do it. Then don’t say it at all.
3. Over react? Do you think hammering the same topic over ten times is over the top?

This is what make people sick and don’t want to be associated with TI. Do you think I will back down?

I’m like btb times 10. If you haven’t noticed and I can go at it.

I can tell you this. Just because your older than me. Doesn’t mean your smarter. (I usually respect people, but it stops if you disrespect other people by bringing other people down.)

Your quotes are there for everyone to see. Why would you say that saying "blackface" would be offensive to them if you were not implying "brother=black"? You even said it multiple times before I called you out on it and then you went to the whole "brother=something else" excuse.

Again, you seem to be the only one who is claiming morekaos is racist, the fact that no other members are backing you up on this one should indicate something.

But let's get back to the topic.

So the term "snowflake" as defined by Urban Dictionary:

Quote
Began being used extensively as a putdown for someone, usually on the political left, who is easily offended or felt they needed a "safe space" away from the harsh realities of the world, but now has morphed into a general putdown for anyone that complains about any subject.

So really, aren't there snowflakes on both sides of the aisle?
