    Classic douchebag attitude, thinking your time is more important than someone else's.

    If you don't mind, it'd be great if you both could shut the fuck up.

    If you don't want to watch the video or listen to the podcasts, that's cool. But if you want to flame, I would appreciate if you did it somewhere else.

    I thought the Joe Rogan guy was unnecessarily confrontational. As if he were trying to goad his subject into regressing to her former state. Specifically in the police protection for First Amendment segment. She held her own though. The TED talk was far more useful. :thup:

    Rogan is Rogan, he's always like that. He defends his opinions, and he can be stubborn. He's a smart guy though, and I don't think he pushed her that hard.

    Keep on mind, she's used to people pushing back against her opinions - that's the whole point of the story, I think. I don't think Rogan was rude or anything.

    You won't be missed anymore than you missed calling out all the leftist trash that infests this board as much as the right.

    I'm glad she escaped that disgusting cult.

    The message of the Westboro church is correct. Because it does say in the Bible that God hates homo's and their lifestyle, and their destination is hell.

    Although I disagree with their tactic of picketing of soldier's funerals. ..... :cool:

    In our few interactions here, I've noticed that Doc falls way short of living up to the standards of internet discourse this lady advocates for.

    :lol:

    Did you bother to actually listen to her before you took the opportunity to attack me? I'm guessing no.

    If you did, I can't possibly see how you believe that she is "advocating" for a "standard".

    She is telling her story - a fascinating one - not dictating standards for others to follow.
