Default Are you offended?

I donít let political cartoons bother me whatsoever. This one seems to get to people. So many seem to be irritated by it.

Good humor always has a small percentage of truth within it.....

To your question, No.

Not offended.

The ones that are offended have a difficult time processing truth.

Example "****hole" that statement had a whole lot of truth, yet so many people had an epic melt down.

Let's keep pushing the limits of the PACE ROE so that the forum can get canned again...

It's actually pretty hard to find a thread on here lately that doesn't have blatant violations.

About the same as saying:

All "X" are "y"

X = white, black, asian, mexican, indian, european

y = dumb, smart, lazy, angry, racist, hard workers, rich, poor, dirty, lucky, crooks, thugs.....

Go through the PACE ROE. theres one about antagonism. starting a thread with "are you offended" seems to me to be antagonistic. Obviously the OP has considered that someone may be offended by this or else he wouldnt have posted. Theres also a rule about posting memes and gifs. i know that this is a political cartoon, but to me political cartoons and political memes are pretty dang similar.

I don't think this forum will be around much longer if we don't start policing ourselves a little better. I guess I could have posted a number of threads, but this one just seemed a little bit more blatant.

If antagonizing was really an issue, texansfan would have been gone long ago.

You can always do what you normally do and hit the little Report button in the corner and continue your whine with the mods.
Or you can just block me so you wonít get so upset. Pretty simple really.

I'm not upset. I just like to try to follow the rules. Don't want the forum to get canned. Pretty simple really.
