Posted by a friend of a friend. This is actually not entirely stupid but posting anyway because I thought some of you might enjoy it and because fuck you and your stupid rules #freespeech!!! BRAG ALERT: Despite being straight out of Compton and living as a black man for the first 48 years of my life, I have finally arrived at the pinnacle of American success -- I have been called out by a white liberal for my racism against black folks. In short, I am now "The Man." At...
I'm not currently a homeowner but have a relationship with a mortgage broker I trust (happy to send info to anyone interested). When I was a homeowner , our deal was that he'd take his fee and closing costs including appraisal, doc fees, etc. out of his spread, so it was truly costless to me (not rolled into the loan principal).

Had a very good meal with friends at Haven in Oakland a while back. If you get over the Berkeley Chez Panisse really is worth the visit if you've never been, as is the Cheese Board. Both are obvious, but pretty much live up to their reputation. I'd say the same thing about Top Dog, but it's been decades since I ate at either location.

Well, I suppose you could be right that shunning or slurring occurs because of some sort of institutionalized or systemic bias against "dissenting opinion".Or it could just be that when somebody says something stupid, obnoxious, or dickish, people tend to point it out, and that people who persist in acting like trolls run the risk of being ignored (the non-butthurt synonym for "shunned").
