I find it ironic that the people who most express the freedoms given to them are the same ones who shit on it...

I’m so tired of people shitting on my country. When I hear people talk bad about America it pisses me off until no end. Am I racist, no. I am a proud descendent of immigrants who fought in wars for America since WW2 defying all odds. I don’t swing left or right, and honestly I support certain ideas from both sides. The way I see it is like this... There are times in our lives where our parents might have been disappointed in us or for others we might have been the ones disappointed in our children, that doesn’t mean you stop loving them. Am I happy with who is in office not necessarily, does that make me stop loving my country? No. Will I speak badly of the one country who has given me every opportunity presented to me and to sit here and write this post, no I won’t. #ImGratefulUSA #ThankyouAmerica #ImmigrantsForTrueFreedom

Context? Your definition of talking bad about America maybe different from the others. Some equate it with supporting trump , some equate it with supporting black lives matter. There is a thin line between blunt nationalism and patriotism ( and rhetoric and reality )

D2: the example of General Robert Lee was referenced to illustrate an example of HOW debate has evolved. Re read my post again, you and D1. It is clear and not once did I discuss the merits of erecting the man’s statue or retaining its standing. So no, I didn’t conflate the issue. You did.

As for your other points, the question raised is not which side debates poorly, but rather HOW debate has devolved into a deconstructive engagement. So again, slow down and re read my post because you extrapolate and generalize speciously.

I’m beginning to question the intellectual caliber from Deloitte’s talent, if simple reading comprehension is clearly so challenged.

If by “speaking badly” you mean not sitting back and enabling anti-American bullshit, then I will continue “speaking badly” about it until the problem is solved. Shutting up is not loving your country. Letting it literally fall apart in front of your eyes is not loving your country. Letting anyone lie to your face to tell you everything is fine is not loving your country.

I think you and the OP are on the same side on this one.

This is dramatic

Sales assistant at a drug/grocery store. The manager thinks my coworker does great work but I've seen her putting out new products without rotating stock (so the oldest food will be sold first) and we are always supposed to check the dates when shelving new things. The problem is, I don't really get along with this coworker and I think it's noticeable to management. If I bring this up with our supervisor, are people going to think that I'm just trying to sabotage my coworker so that I will look better than her?

So my problem is not with Twitter censoring calls for violence or hate speech. They're a private company and follow their guidelines. But why are they selectively applying it? Sure, censor Donald Trump. Why not censor Ayatollah Khamenei? How about Westboro Baptist Church which literally has the handle "@godhatesfagswbc"?
