The Republican Party Going Forward v 2.0
I have the stamina, but zero patience for people who are likely climate change deniers, yet simultaneously claim to be experts in thermodynamics.

Math, science, logic and reason aren't a buffet where you can pick and choose the bits you like.

I want a social media platform where not only can I block people, but others can see how many times that person has been blocked, with tags describing why. E.g. "400 blocks - Dunderhead".

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy is blaming "liberalism" and "the snowflake" for player transfers:

Quote:Coming off a 48-47 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday, the Cowboys are 5-5 and have won just two conference games. Gundy met with reporters today, and in response to a question about player transfers he unleashed this soupy helping of nonsense:

I think we live in a world where people are non-committal. We allow liberalism to say, “Hey, I can really just do what I want and I don’t have to be really tough and fight through it.” You see that with young people because it’s an option they’re given. We weren’t given that option when we were growing up. In the world today, there’s a lot of entitlement.

I’m a firm believer in the snowflake. I think it’s setting there. And I’m not talking about Thabo. Thabo and I have had multiple good talks. I’m talking about every millennial young person. Generation Z, I think is what they call ’em. It’s the world we live in because if they say, “Well, it’s a little bit hard,” we say, “Okay, well, let’s go try something else.” vs. “Hey, let’s bear down and let’s fight and do this.” So you see a lot of that nowadays, and that doesn’t have anything to do with Thabo or [Jalen] McCleskey or anybody that’s been on the portal here.

That’s just general in society even if you’re working down here at Walmart. Your boss gets after you and tells you that you’re not doing a good job, you may go home and cry and tell your mom, but your mom may say it’s okay. That’s just kind of the facts of life, the world we live in today.

Don’t get me on politics.

That sounds like the ramblings of a man whose career path has been put on the endangered species watchlist because those under his watch often end up with debilitating injuries due to participation.  The "Toughen up, Buttercup" line of thought coming from him seems particularly self-serving...
