I prefer the view from the peanut gallery, but I can at least understand the appeal.  Poking the dumb monkeys and watching them fling their dung everywhere is amusing as hell.

Yeah, the peanut gallery used to suit me just fine too, but once you get engaging with them, it's a whole new ballgame.

Please, please, please someone explain to me ...everything about this storyline and how it relates to children:

Of course Lady Checkmate is quick to blame the "alt-left" for this, as always, but...I'm so baffled I can't even speak.  How do children enter into this at all?

Hillary Clinton has endorsed Andrew Cuomo in the New York Democratic gubernatorial primary over Cynthia Nixon.

I seem to recall a speaker at an event for Clinton saying something about a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.

Dude, geeks/nerds/whatever-the-fuck are the biggest pussies on the fucking planet; you should know this, by now.  A woman gets anywhere near whatever sacred cow they like to fuck and hoo-boy, you can hear the idiotic screeching from fucking Pluto.  Female Doctor?  OHMIGODWIMMINNOTDAWKTAR!  Female characters altered to be more energy and less sex appeal?  BUTINEEDSACUM!  A woman so much as breathes on an FPS' voice chat?  LOLTITSORGTFO.  Its the same group of fuckin' retards that shatter their keyboards in a fit of rage if a game's textures are one pixel off standard HD resolution.

They want gaming to become/remain a secluded, insular community of socially inept dipshits spamming /b/tard bullshit across whatever game's chat system they want without reproach or fear of qualification.  They are as worthless as they are predictable.  Let 'em screech in the hallowed confines of GameFAQs, 4chan, and other such shitholes.  Its more funny when games owned and operated by actual people kick them the fuck off for being idiots, anyways.
This man speaks the truth.

Seriously, fuck nerd/geek culture.

So fun fact everyone.  SCOTUS has already ruled on something very similar when it came to Jehovah's Witnesses being forced to stand for the pledge.  Guess what they ruled.  Go on guess.

Ironbite-the NFL may be violating the Constitution.

Actually, when it was specifically about Jehovah's Witnesses as a religious matter, the Court ruled against them, holding that Free Exercise did not prevent a school from punishing a student who refused to stand for the Pledge. Their overturning of that ruling (though it was again in a case involving a Jehovah's Witness) rested on the Free Expression clause, holding that anyone had the right, as a matter of speech, to refuse to stand for the Pledge or salute the flag or what have you. (Which is a stronger holding, to be sure, but nonetheless it is a speech, rather than religion, matter, and religious rights are still, technically, circumscribed and those refusing to stand for the Pledge are invoking their Free Expression rather than their Free Exercise rights in doing so.)

But, more saliently, a school is, at some level, an extension of the government (if nothing else, students are bound to be there, whether under threat of legal punishment for themselves or their legal guardians), which is bound to act in accordance with the Constitution, which forbids them from acting in a manner to abridge the rights of free exercise and free expression. The NFL, by contrast, is, ultimately, a private institution. Nothing governmental compels players to play for a team in the NFL. Nothing legal bars a player truly opposed to this from attempting to set up his own competition; if the NFL attempted to prevent that, it would be acting in a monopolistic manner forbidden by antitrust law. Further, some owners (like the Jets' owner) have said that they will personally pay any fines imposed on their players or their team should a player act in contravention of this ban and not compel players to abide by it. (Apparently one version of this proposal had the offending team suffer a 15-yard penalty, which would have been a very different matter.)

I would even note that there is another professional competition, contested under similar (though not identical) rules to those employed in the NFL, conducted in North America, during roughly the same time frame as the NFL, and I imagine they wouldn't mind an influx of talent.

Eh, its no less idiotic than choosing a random assortment of coloured fabric and symbolistic whatnot and claiming it as our standard, or which random animal best represents our society.  Hell, as universal as music is, national theme songs are easily the least surprising "national" thing.

Flags make a lot of sense, really. You drape it over a place and it's like claiming that place as "yours", so your army doesn't shoot at it. Drape it over a person and you're saying that person is on your side, don't shoot at them. There's a good reason for flags.
