    I liek this line:


    Reading the article, I'd say the next vote should be whether the city can secede the union. I'd vote for it...

    Typical. Lets revise everything and make sure that we don't offend anyone. I am easily offended by the way.

    Lets just do that. Let's vote to remove Berkeley and surrounding area from the United States and see how well they fare without federal or state funding.

    Of course they'll have to find some way to be rid of their garbage. The export taxes levied from the U.S. to Berkeley would have to be costly. They'd have to drill wells for water and I'm not entirely sure what the ground water is like round those parts. The list would be rather extensive.

    I'm not proud of the slavery in our past but renaming a school dedicated to one of our founding fathers seems just a bit extreme.

    K, I'm done now.

    Jefferson is one of the greatest men in the history of mankind. This is a joke. Its hilarious when people on the one hand blame him for slavery and on the other dismiss his "all men are created equal" writing in the Declaration of Independance as if a man of that much genius didn't understand where that language would eventually lead (to a world without slavery). Slavery is bad, no doubt... but the guy prolly had less than a hundred slaves in his life and countless millions (billions?) have been positively affected by the system of government he helped create. Other than George Washington stepping down at the end of his presidency, Jefferson's Declaration is probably the greatest single contribution to the modern democratic republic and our way of life. **** the Lenin/Stalin/Mao/Pot/Sung worshipping commies on the left.

    Frelling liberals need too understand that slavery is part of our history. Right or wrong, it did happen, no changing the past. Seams like all the liberal POSMF can do is focus on the negitive.

    It's not enough that life is easy and sterilized currently, they want the entire past to be as bright as thier nowhere future

    Try and erase the memory of WWII

    Try and erase the prisoner tattoos of older Jews

    People these days have no idea what good and evil truly is. They only know comfortable and uncomfortable.

    I'm waiting for the day when people DO try to erase WWII and the Holocaust. Sometime after the last of those alive during it die off I expect. I can't stand people that want the past to be something other than it was. **** you, it happened, there is no changing something that happened. I can't change the fact that I just farted, or that I've done or said stupid things. All I can do is maybe apologize and move the hell on. He's dead, they can't get an apology, so they do the next best thing, pretend he never existed. When can I pretend the civil rights movement never happened?
