Was Roseanne’s First Ammendement Rights Violated?

In a since-deleted tweet, Roseanne Barr referred to former President Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett as “product  of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes”. 

Some have questioned Barr’s firing, saying she is protected by the First Amendment to say whatever she wants. While Barr has a right to say whatever she wants, she also has the responsibility to deal with the consequences of the things she says, and ABC also has the right to fire her.

First of all, this is in no way a free-speech or First Amendment issue. The First Amendment protects us from facing consequences from the government over our speech, not consequences from our peers or our employers. Yes, what Barr said, although abhorrent, absolutely was constitutionally protected speech, and, of course, it should be. After all, giving the government the power to decide what is and is not “acceptable” speech would be giving the government the power to silence whatever kind of speech it felt like silencing, which would be very dangerous indeed. Anyway, the point is, a free-speech-rights violation would be someone trying to, say, arrest Barr for her comments, not firing her for them. Her rights were in no way violated in this case. ABC simply exercised its own rights as a private company to decide whom it does and does not want to associate with, and it’s my view that no one should blame its executives for making the decision that they made.

Should I fight back in prison?

I have been incarcerated on a few different occasions in my former ( young and stupid) life. One thing that I came to realize when I was in those situations was that, although I was there because I did something that was against the law and I got caught, and the things I did were serious offenses, I did these things simply because I was young and dumb kid. I knew that I did not belong there.

The people that I encountered during my stays were mostly psychopathic, sociopathic and basically people who decided that they were not going to follow the rules of society. Most of the time people like this will never conform to the rules set by our society and culture. They just do not and will not get it. These people use violence and the fear of violence to try to achieve their goals, whatever they may be. For whatever reason this is how they learned to navigate the world. These people will use violence or the threat of violence to get whatever it is they want from you because this is all they know. If you show them that you are not afraid of their attempts to scare or intimidate you, most of the time they will leave you alone and you will even gain their respect. This is all that they will understand and these people belong in prison, locked up like the animals that they are.

Inside The Sex Life Of A Big Ten College Basketball Player

May 22, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Interesting, Life Experiences |

There are girls for every sport. Some girls go for football players — “puck sluts” is a slang term for hockey chasers. Girls message you, get right down to the point and say “Let’s hook up.” Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook. I’d say I’m hooking up four or five times a week. Sometimes on the weekend I’ll hook up with two or three different girls. Many of them are just hooking up with me because I’m a basketball player. They’re using me as well. We’re men, got our hormones and everything, and we kind of just want to release those every now and then. Hooking up does depend on what the girl looks like to a certain degree, and then it depends if I’m tired or not.

Sometimes the guys on the team get competitive about sex. Our freshman summer we actually made it a competition: Who could have sex with the most girls. We had a point system, and we called ourselves the EFC: Elite Fucking Committee. We’d keep track and meet up on Sunday and tell stories.

If a soldier steps on a landmine and doesn’t lift his foot off the landmine then it won’t detonate, but is there any way out of this scenario?

You mean after you hear that soft “click” that mine manufacturers built in out of curtesy so that a soldier knows he’ll die soon and can say his last prayer, or better even, be saved by his mates?

Sounds too good to be true? That’s because it’s not.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians commonly refer to such landmines as HSE mines – Hollywood Special Effect mines.

If you were to construct an anti-personnel (AP) mine, would you built it in a way that allows a soldier who stepped on it to get away unharmed? Probably not. At least that’s how weapon developers approach that question. And why wouldn’t they? Their job is to create a device that stops the enemy from penetrating an area (or at least to make it very time-consuming). The more casualties the deployment of the device produces, the more it will slow down or stop the enemy. Obviously, this is best achieved with a mine that instantly injures or kills a soldier rather than with one that allows him to survive unharmed.

One of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims managed to temporarily escape. He was found naked, drugged and bleeding from his rectum on a street corner. Dahmer convinced police that the boy was his boyfriend and that they had had an argument. The boy was returned to Dhamer and was murdered that night.

In the early morning hours of May 27, Dahmer returned toward his apartment to discover Sinthasomphone sitting naked on the corner of 25th and State, talking in Laotian, with three distressed young women standing near him. Dahmer approached the trio and explained to the women that Sinthasomphone (whom he referred to by an alias) was his friend, and attempted to lead him to his apartment by the arm. The three women dissuaded Dahmer, explaining they had phoned 911. Upon the arrival of two officers named John Balcerzak and Joseph Gabrish, Dahmer’s demeanor relaxed: he informed the officers that Sinthasomphone was his 19-year-old boyfriend, that he had drunk too much following a quarrel, and that he frequently behaved in this manner when intoxicated. The three women were exasperated and when one of the trio attempted to indicate to one of the officers that Sinthasomphone was bleeding from his buttocks and that he had seemingly struggled against Dahmer’s attempts to walk him to his apartment, the officer harshly informed her to “butt out,” “shut the hell up” and to not interfere, adding the incident was “domestic.”
