Freedom is going to a new restaurant every night, to experience different cuisine. Safety is going to the same restaurant every night, because you know it's good.

I liked the Obama thread better than this one, though I can see why some of your threads would be closed.

Ftr, Obamacare and Libya has proven to be disasters, but I'd still prefer it to the sharp murder rate increase and the campus craziness of his 'woke' 2nd term.

I can see why the "Are there any issues" threads were closed.

I have a hard time seeing why my thread reposting Andy's article got closed though. I took great care of removing Andy's very problematic language. I'm actually surprised that Andy would stoop so low, woke is a mocking term and should not under any circumstances be used under the strict but benevolent rule of our Great Leaders. So I'm not sure what rule I supposedly violated in that case.

Woke is actually the preferred nomenclature, I believe, mostly a badge of honour. Sjw is the term used derogatorily (slightly broader, but still).

I'm pleased to see Rinho slowly waking up to being woke.

Nacka still has some waking up to do though. But with our help he can break through it.

The eternal question of civilisation...


And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

While on the subject of freedom; I had a dream last night that I visited Big Soccer and it was so strange. The mods there would close political threads and then act surprised that there was no political discussion. I'm sure glad such silly things don't happen at Xtratime.

years ago I got permabanned from bigsoccer and all it took was playfully hinting at Zionist involvement in 9/11

I mean let's be honest: until the recent surge of censorship XT had a lot of freedom of speech for years. Dunno what's the need of this hardline modding now on a practically dead forum.
Ero, Nacka and LL! like this.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Sure, I might have phrased it a bit too categorical. I should have said that woke is a word that can only be used if it's sincere and said by people who are certified to use it.

P.S. I was going to make a joke here, but then I saw that there was a new decree from the rulers that joking is only allowed in the designated thread. So as a loyal subject I will refrain from such insolence.
