Replying to the new post (Dec. 2020) about the suspension list.

I think if suspensions are increasing, it's more due to the expansion of reasons for a suspension. I am sure that I could list a number of words or phrases that would have passed muster even not so long ago, but now in our "woke" culture are no longer acceptable. Words that we all use in daily conversation are now taboo in "polite" society. We have so many words now that can only be referenced by letter: N-word; C-word; S-word; F-word; B-word; that, to paraphrase sheriff Browdy, "We're gonna need a bigger alphabet!". I wonder if it will degenerate here such that we know that we cannot say "You are an idiot" but we CAN say "you are an I-word."

"Political" is so all-encompassing HERE that I'm not sure if what I am saying in this post will be okay. Not to mention the narrow, singular judgement of just one person who seems to be the prosecutor, judge and jury of suspensions. It's his board, so his is the absolute and appropriate perspective, but perfectly reasonable people can and do disagree. Too bad. There is no appeal, and I am sure that a more intense review of suspensions than I am willing to undertake would show an arbitrary and inconsistent standard. Without remembering the specifics, I can recall several suspensions, and non-suspensions, that made no consistent sense. If Mike is having a bad day, so are you going to have one if you step out of line.

Justice Scalia was famous for beginning many of his jousts with the litigants in a free speech or libel case with "So, sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me, right?" This is the rule that I apply whenever I read written words.

Consider this. The Falls Church, Virginia school board has - UNANIMOUSLY - decided to remove the names of Thomas Jefferson and George Mason from two of their schools because "our schools must be places where all students, staff and community members feel safe, supported and inspired."

I wonder how long it will be before even MENTIONING the name of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, or Abraham Lincoln will earn a poster here a suspension?

Youtubers can't even mention the word COVID-19 or coronavirus or else they get demonetized. I'm not sure Cerveza Sickness is an appropriate dodge. But I bought some buffalo chicken hours before the expiration date last night and Corona premium beer went OK with it. But I don't drink beer, I just bought this 6 pack because it was going out of style.

He is basically calling MDawg a troll.
