Political memes. What a way for someone to feel important yet come off as uneducated.

I'll tell you what...I've been thinking about this for a while, and it's like the self-anointed black "leadership," most notably the hypocritical Black Lies Lives Matter, are just trying to turn me into Uncle Ruckus, make me wish I wasn't black or something like that.  These morons wouldn't know truth if it bit em in the ass...fortunately for these knuckleheads (and unfortunately for those of us who see their garbage for what it is) neither does the media.  This concerted effort to paint the police as a murderous horde doesn't help anybody but this mob of hucksters.  If Michael Brown, Tony Robinson, and Freddie Gray were victims of anything, it was their own stupidity. 

 

I'll tell you one thing...as I mention when I feel it's relevant, in my neck of the woods we get Chicago and Milwaukee stations, and most summers, at least one of the former's stations will be talking about a black kid dying by a stray bullet.  If/when there's a followup announcing a suspect, said suspect is invariably black.  That knucklehead in South Carolina was the exception to the norm, and the bitter truth is these aren't whites (and honestly, "black agenda" groups are hyperfocused on perceived white on black racism, to the exclusion of all else.  In all honesty, I don't blame real Africans for seeing us mostly as hypocritical whiners).  I figure anybody associating with BLM would call me a house n*****r or an Uncle Tom or whatever, but I don't care, I can't in good conscience respect them.  Their name's too short, for one thing.  Black lives don't matter to them if the killer was also black, because they can't use those deaths to claim either a hate crime or police brutality.  Black Lives Ended By Whites Or Cops Matter should be their name, their current moniker's one they don't honestly believe in.

It's frustrating when people pronounce it "fustrating"

How is it that a movie like Se7en isn't available on Netflix, HBO Now, or Showtime Anytime?  Even Amazon Prime is charging $4 for a rental.  Hell, imagine the selection that Showtime would have if they dumped all their softcore porn.

Se7en was on Netflix sometime this year; I remember watching it relatively recently.

I've never heard anyone do that, ever.  Everyone I know who would speak intelligently enough to actually use that word (instead of "annoying," or "stupid," or some other simpler word that is closely related to "frustrating") pronounces it correctly.

 

You might just be mishearing.  If I say "frustrating" quickly, without thinking that I am being judged or anything, I don't place a strong emphasis on the first 'r.'  Try it yourself and you will know what I mean.

It's quite common. And for some, it's not about a lack of intelligence but hearing "fustrating" is frustrating.

My old hockey coach loved the word frustrated and always said "fustrated". He also said the "power kill" and "defencemens" so he might not have been the sharpest knife in the drawer.

There must be some sort of issue with "fr" for certain people. On top of "fustrated", I've heard the word "refigerator" on a few occasions.

Yeah, I think it's just not pronouncing the "r" fully, kind of "gliding" over it.

 

It happens a lot with the first "r" in "library" as well.

flying the American flag at half-staff for every little thing that happens.  the flag should be flown at half-staff (other then the days that they should be flown, like Memorial Day and days like that) when a US President dies, Vice President dies, any former leader from around the world that the US are allies with (for a day or two depending on the leader).  would say anyone that walk on the moon would be ok (or anything like the Challenger and Columbia disasters).  would say at the state level, the death of a medal of honor winner (if they got it when they were alive), a member of congress (from that state and the US Capitol can lower the flag to half-staff, if it the speaker of the house or president pro tempore then nation wide for a day or two).  would also say if a supreme court justices dies the flag at the supreme court should be lowered (unless its a chief justices then its nation wide for a day or two).  if something like 9/11 happens again, then i would be ok with half-staff.  other then that, i dont like it half-staff for every little bad thing that happens (the state that the event happens in can lower the flag to half-staff, but not nation wide).
