“M4ster Yoda“, sounds like a 16 year old whose dad bought him an M4 for his birthday. By the way, not every democrat is a liberal but then you won’t understand that until you’re a little older.

Ard Rhymes with Tard which is extremely fitting in this instance. Especially since reading comprehension isn't your strong suit.

Who mentioned Democrats????

Hey Tard. Your the one that told the other poster to watch a "liberal" cable channel for a dose of reality.

Typical LIBERAL. Not a fucking clue in the world

^ This. If this scumbag cannot bring all democrats and republicans together in unity against him, I don't think anything can. When every person should be saying 'this guy needs to go', we have Jockey sitting here saying "but what about the racist Republicans?" He needs to get over himself, take a time out, and realize that he should just swallow some pride for a second and agree this guy is trash. Instead, however, he spends 4 pages of this thread saying 'what about this guy' and 'what about that guy'.

Sad.

This is a great illustration of how polarized politics has become. Both sides are guilty of it but it seems the left hang on and support the folks who are wrongheaded on their side more rabidly than the right.

The debates on this forum that go on and on even despite being refuted with facts and logic are sometimes alarming.

Well, VA could be viewed as "Southeastern US" by some folks. Mid-Atlantic sounds more like an NCAA conference than a geographical descriptor.

You bring up a good point, shouldn't we be shaming the medical school as well? Why would anyone put this picture in a book? Has the school apologized for this?

Well - it just keeps getting more and more interesting. Now the Lt. Gov may be in hot water too.

A woman named Vanessa Tyson, who is a fellow at Stanford University, says that a Virginia Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax allegedly sexually assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. A friend of Tyson’s named Adria Scharf, based in Richmond, Virginia, shared the “heartbreaking” message, which Tyson wrote as a private post.

https://bigleaguepolitics.com/stanfo...x-sex-assault/

https://www.wdbj7.com/content/news/L...505297401.html

Personally - I am holding any judgement on this one until something gets substantiated, especially due to the original source and that no other news outlet has published the accusations. This allegation seems a bit suspect to me, but we shall see. Certainly muddies the waters further up in VA, though.

^This. What the ever loving hell was the University thinking to even remotely consider publishing that photo in the year book. This was the mid 80's, for gosh sakes, not the 1800's!!

The university should be condemned for this as well, no doubt in my mind.

From one of your links:

...Fairfax's office released a statement on Twitter saying in part, "Tonight, an online publication released a false and unsubstantiated allegation against Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax."

The statement addressed allegations that were sent to the Washington Post more than a year ago during the time of Fairfax's inauguration. The Post proceeded to investigate the claims presented and ultimately declined to publish the story due to inconsistent statements
...

That certainly lends some credibility to the Lt Gov's position. Hardly conclusive, but...

Exactly, and I agree wholeheartedly. I am unsure if this is a worthy claim to be concerned over, but as DETRoadster says, it really is becoming an epic shit show and it certainly isn't helping the situation.

Gentlemen, you win the Tag-Team Internet of the Day. Congratulations!

This is an epic Crap Show, pure and simple with the newest additions doing nothing but muddying the waters to bring it to a new crappy level.

It's hilarious. The naming conventions are a mixture of colonial times juxtaposed with the new. Pulling an actual map and renaming based on actual geography would yield a much different result.

Indeed.

I'm from Florida originally and can attest to this fact. For a true Floridian (I was born and raised there), anything south of Martin County on the east coast is considered 'Southern New York" and anything north or west of Alachua County is considered 'Lower Alabama'.

“ard ryhmmes with tard “. You sound like a 9 year old on the play ground. Speaking of reading comprehension, I never suggested anyone watch anything.

I'm not gonna go back and forth with you gramps. I was just messing around with my initial comment and you got personal.

Enjoy your fantasyland. I'm gonna go enjoy the ///M4 I purchased. As a matter of fact I'll be enjoying yet another European Delivery on my next ///M4 this May.
