Born and raised in N Central WV. Growing up, my best friend’s dad owned his own little mine. He hated union guys, and echoed the local sentiment that they were a drain on profits, bad workers, “mamby pamby,” etc. “Union” has been a 4-letter word for decades in WV, and economic deprivation the norm forever.

My high school principal was a retired Army Col., complete with self-important, deeeeep in the closet sort of baggage. The man was a cunt for lots of reasons, and literally everyone hated him—faculty, staff, students, assistant principals—everyone.

As though resultant psychological problems would be any justification whatsoever for limiting abortions. All kinds of shit that causes trauma is perfectly legal: war, football, The Big Bang Theory, NOT getting a needed abortion

Bu-bu-but Kant shreds the ontological argument in the Critique of Pure Reason, only to build a case for God from (and for) practical reason in later works, esp Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals and the lesser known Religion within the Boundaries of Reason Alone Read more
