Obama speaking now, blamed both sides but emphasized the fault of the police. (Specifically calling them out for the peaceful protest attack and the journalist arrests).

How the hell can the protesters be blamed at all?! "You people shouldn't be enraged over the death of an innocent child"??

Lets try again, is their a source for this that is:
A.a real source
B.in English

Let me get this straight

You want me to find a news article about how black people are being racially attacked while calling the Ferguson Police.

Alright.

Operators have been answering the phone, directing racial slurs at those asking what is going on, and hanging up.

Is there a source to verify this? As horrible as its gone, the optimist in me is inclined to believe that things haven't gotten this bad.

Well, there's more registered Democrats than Republicans here. And I'm a registered Democrat, so.

3) It is ok for two people to get together for sex and not necessarily expect anything further. - Agree.

4) If a couple has children, they should stay married unless there is physical or emotional abuse. - Agree, but with reservations.

5) It is sometimes permissible for a married person to have sex with someone other than his/her spouse. - Disagree.

Apologies for my harshness, R2D2.

But forget some random blogger; if you want to see pure insensitivity, without any kind of legitimate point behind it, please welcome the King of Real-Life Trolls, Mr. Rush Limbaugh:

I saw this and had to get up and walk around so I wouldn't lose my god damn mind
116  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: RIP Robin Williams on: August 13, 2014, 12:41:45 am
But...uh... I just noticed that there's been no discussion about the Michael Brown shooting and its aftermath on Atlas far as I can tell (please somebody prove me wrong?).  And there's been not too much about it in the social media circles I see, compared to a lot of other recent tragedies.  Which, come to think of it, is actually kind of f**ked-up.  Don't think it ought to be out of bounds to point that out.

I only know about it because of Tumblr, so chalk that one up for the SJWs.

But this is essentially the point I was trying to make.
117  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: RIP Robin Williams on: August 13, 2014, 12:13:48 am
That's absolutely not how I meant for it to come across, so I apologize for that. I agree that the article is ill-timed and too blunt for its own good. However, the article makes a really solid point that, while people are grieving about Robin Williams (which they are perfectly allowed to do) there is still this spike in police-versus-citizen violence going on. As JR said, people are allowed to be upset about both at the same time. The problem is that a lot of people are focusing only on Robin Williams. For the time being, that is appropriate. But it's more of a caricature of society at large. It is sad that we lost such a funny man to such a horrible disease, but it just seems that, in the scheme of things, Robin Williams is just the newest star to burn out. Once his demise has been milked, it's not like the horrible things going on in the world are suddenly going to receive the kind of attention that his death did.
118  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: funniest people on this list on: August 13, 2014, 12:10:26 am
Pryor, Carlin, Cosby, Fey and Ferrell. Robin Williams would be up with the first three in that list.

Wow this is...this is very spot on.
