    Shi**y vs. terd

    I'm still trying to understand what was meant by "terd (pun intended)" from the originial post.
    My use of the word terd is a habit I've had for years. It's reserved for those that are doing something bad or wrong.

    It was mostly a play on words. Shi**y and terd are closely related in the pun.

    I am not too keen on political correctness, which is usually based on some form of groupthink. I am asking about your definition of the word. During Vietnam we called people "gooks." I am sure it is easier to shoot and kill a gook than a person with a name. I see the word "thugs" bantered about here in much the same way here.

    I am not anti-cop. I think you guys have an impossible job. While you say "write yer Congressman" they are the guys who set the house on fire. They often try to put it out with gasoline, which, I dunno for sure, but I don't think it has ever worked. Usually the leaders are a few steps behind the people; if the people are behind, then the "leaders" are way behind. Our elections are between Tweedledee, Tweedledum, and Tweedledumbest usually wins.

    Democracy works perfectly, but we are only as strong as the weakest link.
    not sure who " we " are in ref to calling the enemy names,
    i am sure no one minded calling the enemy names during
    ww1, or ww2.

    when we see patterns of criminality, and hear eye witness reports
    of criminal aCtivity or see it on the television...who care's what
    name we give the bad guys.

    the criminal element once again out shined in the tv media and
    eye witness accounts.
    no matter what paint job ya give a thug, he's always gonna be one,
    and don't bother throwing money at it, cause it's a lost cause.

    Stevec is partly right.
    And I am partly right. I'll gladly admit when I'm wrong.

    Here's Merriam-Websters definition:
    Main Entry: [B]ref

    I guess you know whats best. And you know, you're right...it is easier to shoot a thug than anti American socialist, so you're safe for now.

    I've noticed a pattern that young people are always immature. Maybe it's just me.

    I've also noticed a pattern of bigotry in adults.

    I wonder if it is a coincidence, or if the people who are immature when they are young also grow up to be bigots when they get older.

    I recently learned that in the church I go to, 50 or so years ago, that it was "standard operating procedure" for the French to sit on one side of the church and the Irish on the other. (Evidently that was all who lived in the town in those days.) In fact, there are lots of churches around built side-by-side of the same denomination to serve different ethnic communities.

    Has it ever occured to you guys that some cops exhibit a similar form of bigotry? Like, if a poor person commits a crime, then all poor people are criminals. Or, is a poor black person commits a crime, then all poor blacks are criminals?

    This conversation quickly changed from "a kid through a piece of paper on the ground" to "there will be an increase in crime because of the refugees."

    They are not refugees, they are survivors. They will only be refugees if they are persecuted by a bigoted government.

    All bigotry comes from a false sense of superiority/inferiority, rather than seeing everyone as equal.

    The comments on rehabilatation and social services, especially, seem to reflect an attitude that their work is unimportant and futile. Perhaps the mechanism of a self-fulfilling prophesy is at work here? Do you see only what you project?

    Do you think you are better than the people you serve (and work with), in general?

    (This is a general comment, not meant toward anyone specifically.)
    Has anybody else noticed (and how could you miss it) that this guy has everyone pegged as being inferior to his view of Xanadu? I mean every one of us bigotted, government types. Well, if the idea is to generate debate, he won't allow it because we really haven't grasped his Utopian concepts yet. Especially us old guys with the life EXPERIENCE, as opposed to internet research. So I respectfully bow out and wish the rest of you good luck.

    Take off the blinders. I don't hear anyone saying that all the refugee's are criminals. The fact of the matter is that when you take people out of the projects of N.O. (a high crime area) and displace them into another area (gov't housing, refugee camps etc.) they are going to commit the same crime. That being said, the cities that they are moving into can expect a higher crime rates. This is the N.O. projects were talking about here (very high crime) not the suburban community of Summer Winds. Speaking of that not all suburbinites are good law abiding citizens either, some are criminals, but statistically the crime rate for this class is lower than of the poor class. This does not mean by any means that all people of the poor class are criminals, statistically that class commits more crimes, but not everyone. Of course I wish that the refugee's or survivors would proove me wrong and become upstanding citizens (the criminals that is), but that's a wish not reality.
