You would think that at some point between the conception of this slogan and production of this t-shirt, a loved one would have intervened.

@16 one other other thing: when insurance is linked to employment, people are less likely to take the risk of starting their own business or changing careers than they would if they didn't have to worry about health care. A lot of people stay in jobs they hate for the benefits.

I specifically called you a concern troll. Here is a helpful definition for you: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/defini… - this is not the first time and I am not the only one. You appear to have a singular objective of being annoying for its own sake and to your credit you are very successful at it as i (and many others) have noted over the years. And then you go full-tilt drama queen and clutch your pearls like "well i NEVER!" when this is pointed out, as you have done above. And continue to do, actually, like why am i even flattering you by playing along right now.

If it were just a one time deal that would be excusable, like maybe you actually do care very deeply about this one thing and you deserve to be taken seriously, but you do it so often on so many topics that you do not deserve the benefit of the doubt. Like there is no underlying political philosophy to your comments, you just deliberately misrepresent what people say (e.g I say she is a humanitarian hero who risked her own safety to expose atrocities and you twist that into "Afghan lives don't matter") for the sake of conflict.

i would classify it as pointing out your obnoxious concern trolling for what it is as i (and many others) have done repeatedly in the past but to each his own, agree to disagree etc

Yeah it's rough isn't it. I'll try to pick up the pieces and move on with my life.

She exposed war crimes and did hard time for it. Not sure how you get to "Afghan lives don't matter" from there, particularly since her actions were in response to gross violations of human rights committed by our government against the Afghan people, unless you're just a concern troll who gets a boner from being perpetually contrarian and feigning moral superiority. Otherwise you might understand that these matters are never black and white. You might even not overlook the part where she took responsibility for her actions and spent years in solitary for it.

She risked her own life and safety to expose war crimes. She is a humanitarian hero who broke the law and she will likely be forever damaged by the time she spent in solitary. That should be enough for her haters.

The right has been so successful at demonizing "social justice" that liberals recoil at the words even as they voice support for the concept. The left lets the right frame the debate and then eats its own. Sad!

Oh god, now knives are superior to guns? It's interesting how guns are not all that they're cracked up to be, sometimes, but only when the argument is convenient.
