Not belief. Knowledge.
But, if Rye sees any racism in that line from that poem, which, I assume, is why she calls the National Anthem "problematic", I don't interpret it that way. By referring to both the "hireling" (meaning the British military) and the slave (meaning former slave), the author of the poem is making no distinction between the two. He's not singling out the slave for scorn, or for more scorn than the "hireling". So I don't see any racism in that line and so I don't see what Rye thinks is "problematic" about the National Anthem. Seems to me that the author of the poem was merely noting the presence of slaves among those who died in the attack on Ft. McHenry. I also don't see where war, or death, is being glorified there. He's merely describing the successful defense of an American military installation against the destruction, or takeover, of it. If that's glorifying war, or death, every war movie would be a glorification of war or death. Maybe, to a pacifist, it would be. But I would respectfully disagree with them.
Not really. The Abrahamic god is a paradox and so impossible. Not to mention the fact that he?s a class A asshole. So yeah.
Funny how you should mention a 'profound ignorance of science!' From all of the research and studies I have done on the subject, it would seem that all of the pieces of the universe had to fall into the exact place that they did in order for even this remote spot in the cosmos to be suitable for intelligent life.
What comes next? Schadenfreude.
uhhhhh words are what determines ignorance or lack thereof goober. If you have better indicia of intelligence than language, please share. It's OK to use your crayons.
My favorite quote which sums up the state of the liberal prospective:
I don't think it's that unusual for people who met in their early twenties.
Hannity is an opinion show not a news show. What is shameful is that you don't understand the difference.
Yep. Mr. Magoo is near-sighted rather than far-sighted. Taking care of the wealthiest Americans is not going to MAGA.
God forgive me, but this horrible woman confirms every ugly stereotype I have of Trump supporters.
"The internet is where religions come to die."
They didn't. The laws also don't mention gender now, either.
Does your husband know how delicate you are?
Let them find out it's hard to sell paper airplanes to classmates. Stop them from trying to use their foot as a bicycle brake by jamming it in between the front forks and tire.
Those of us who live in America are not subjected to that yet (This is why California is splitting). Though, the idea is looming amongst liberals and some atheists. I am not interested in forcing our brand of democracy on anyone, I am interested in preserving it. We shouldn't make the same mistakes the UK has made or Canada etc.
Do you see a question mark.
It's your responsibility to support your arguments. Not my fault you can't understand this.
Not sure what this is about
I don't know... I have it on good authority that I can indeed fool all of the people some of the time. So I think it's fair to say, you have been fooled. But maybe not all the time.
Lol! Yes, especially when I hate cooking! ??
