    Default IF ONE OF THESE PICTURES OFFENDS YOU...

    ...it says a lot more about you than about the pictures.












    Both are about the use of a knee.

    The first one tells you why the second was needed.

    I suspect more Trump supporters are offended by the second picture than the first. Although they will probably pretend they are offended by both
    Trump…more than just an ignorant, classless boor. He also is the worst president in American history.

    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    You really aren't interested in having an actual discussion about this subject then, are you?

    Not offended a bit. The first one will result in criminal charges. I do not see a connection between the actions of a second-rate white football player from a middle-class Wisconsin family and the overreaction by a policeman.

    How about this one?

    No, it makes me laugh and feel a sense of pity. Are you trying to make up for Legion going m.i.a. again?

    Hopefully Legina is either coughing up a lung someplace or is hanging from his ceiling fixture.

    You seem to be convinced of that. Perhaps you ought to search for a thread that speaks about good animated movies.

    I would call that one very troubling.

    Child soldier training?

    War is not something to be glorified.

    It is awful.

    Frank! Read my posts in other threads about that cop and the ones who allowed him to kill that guy. Both piss me off.

    So you are saying ONE does not offend you...meaning this was not addressed to you.

    What is your point...and why, oh why, would you expect me to research other posts to read what you may or may not have said in them?

    "Both piss me off" was clear.

    For me, though, the reason for what is happening in the second picture...is because of what is happening in the first.

    He should have taken a different route.
