"So I should work my ass off so everything I earn above $250k"
At the point a single person is making 250k a year, they aren't the ones working their asses off. The only thing their asses are doing is sitting in an office chair while their employees actually work their asses off for much less.
Arkansas, Maryland, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas still have state constitutions that ban atheists from public office, and Pennsylvania denies atheists special protections it gives to theists. That's just governmental discrimination; cultural discrimination is much more widespread.
It occurs to me... that's there's pretty much no incentive not to lie in situations like this. You tell the truth, you're screwed, sued, and at least out of a job if not going to jail if things were severe enough; no mercy. At least by sticking with a story, people believe they'd have a chance of avoiding punishment.
Maybe you should fucking shut your mouth and watch the videos and read about the facts. Every comment of yours has been moronic. I'm assuming you were one of these bikers, or someone who knows the, because of that. Bias is the only reason you'd be this stupid.
Don't be a fool. If you're trying to make an analogy, be accurate. Try this: If one of them stopped in front of you and you bumped into them, then they started shoving and yelling at you. They then knock you to the ground and start kicking you in the sides.
Yes, you would be completely justified in your self-defense.
I think one reason for overreactions like these is the overly-litigious way that society has gotten. The schools are afraid that if they don't do EVERYTHING in their power to keep children safe and something happens, parents are going to sue the shit out of the school.
The irony, is of course, that those methods result in lawsuits anyways. Lose-lose, really, and everyone is to blame.
