Today, in internet land I posted a comment on a FB page stating that I would NOT join the “let’s all get behind Papa John’s pizza” deal and “boost the economy” by buying said pizza
My reason, I stated, was:
I refuse to support a company that claims Obama is making it hard for them to make any money at all therefore cannot give their employees proper benefits, BUT they can afford to give away two million pizzas.
THIS was posted after it:
Give away pizza? Are u a retard? Another liberal who doesn’t understand.
I asked the person, very nicely to consider the use of this pejorative, as name calling is not productive.
Tina I don’t care what you want and you can take that to the bank. Retard is a word in a dictionary and was the acceptable term until libs decided it wasn’t.
Oh so compassionate and clever, don’t you think?
While I DO understand that this word is INDEED in the dictionary, it should be used in a way so that it is a VERB
Take note that is is NOT used as a noun until #4
I do not usually identify myself as any one thing-
except, perhaps ,compassionate.
I think this word is used as a last bastion of those without an argument.
And……while Jackson may not care about the use of this word, I do.
He may be developmentally delayed
He may be brained damaged.
He may even BE “retarded”But I can guarantee you that he has a kinder heart than the person who insulted me today using that word.
And to paraphrase the troll….
I’ll take THAT to the bank.
