Who cares about race or gender? Hire the best. If only 3% are black, should they hire someone less qualified just to meet a quota? That's bullshit. Try being the best instead.

Citizen, your comment has been reported to the PC Police by multiple social justice warriors. Please report to your nearest liberal arts college by 8am tomorrow for PC rehabilitation.

Reality has a liberal bias, so the conservatives fled Facebook because they are unhappy with reality.

I know I shouldn't feed the trolls, but this has to be the single most arrogant thing I've heard in many months. Go back to playing with yourself while reading Vox articles on gun control and leave the rest of the thinking population alone.

...was when they first started SUPPORTING emojis in the OS and made a big deal about it as a "new feature" worth upgrading for...

Exactly. First they shove emoji's down our throats, now they're trying to make social/political statements with them by choosing which one's they'll support. For this and so many other things, my hatred for Apple burns with the rage of a thousand suns.

To mod otherwise because the mod dislikes something, or finds it "offensive", is a form of self-delusion, an effort to censor with the approval of his or her own conscience.

Although it's sad that some people would rather try to censor my 1st amendment rights than come up with a useful alternative, I'm not even slightly surprised. I've had this same debate with friends who are rabidly anti-gun and the answer is always the same - blame the tool, not the user. It's really sad, if we could just get the mentally ill the help they need and stop treating mental illness like something that shouldn't be talked about there would be so many people that could benefit. Not just people who are looking to commit violent acts, but millions of others who's quality of life has been ruined by a mental illness and are too afraid to get the help they need because of the ridiculous stigma attached to it.

Oh good, my post got labeled as a troll. How the FUCK is anything that I said in my original post trolling? A gun can't do a fucking thing without the user. I am NOT a gun nut and I hate gun violence, but I also have a functioning brain and therefore understand that putting silly new feel-good laws in place like banning magazines that hold more than 10 rounds won't do a god-damned thing because, guess what, there are MILLIONS of these in the U.S. already. Anybody who thinks my post is trolling is truly a fucking dumbass in denial about why mass shootings really happen. The stupid assholes who don't like my post because it doesn't fit nicely into their worldview just proves my original point. Fucking morons, you're part of the problem, not the solution. Seriously, take your heads out of your asses and wake the fuck up.

And now Obama will go up to his podium and act sad and say things like "we must do something," "guns are bad," etc., etc. But nothing will be done (as usual) because everyone refuses to address the real problem here - the mental health status of the individual pulling the trigger. The cat's out of the bag people. People are gonna get guns if they want them bad enough regardless of what feel good regulations we pass. The real issue at hand is helping the mentally ill so they don't get to the point where they want to pull the trigger.
