so ifa cop makes an excessive force error, then they should be blacklisted from law enforcement. so if a journalist makes a factual error in reportage, they should be blacklisted from journalism. according to the guardian, the cop who did the shooting has been fired: you reported that the cops were on administrative leave. an error? is this the end of your career? or are you held to a lower standard?

the lyrics about "no trespassing" are actually originally part of Guthrie's song. https://www.woodyguthrie.org/Lyrics/This_Land.htm And I agree. This song should be our anthem.

I couldn't make it through the first episode because to be completely honest, I was getting a little annoyed that the girls kept talking all over each other. I wasn't seeing much of a point other than all of the girls trying to speak about their views coming from the perspective of a Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren perspective. I'm going to listen to a few more episodes to give it a chance, but if there isn't any views other than the Socialist left oh, I don't know if I'll be able to continue. I'm a die-hard crooked media girl. but I like to hear no different perspectives on issues.

I abhor Reality TV & I used to look down my nose at it till someone pointed out that I probably like trash too, just in a different genre. And sure enough, I love classical music but Britney Spears is also my jam; 2 of my fave books are [Great Expectations] & [Jane Eyre] but Janet Evanovitch's [One For the Money] really cracks me up. One person's trash is another person's treasure; the gift is in being able to admit you're a trash person. Which, it turns out, I AM.

Loved this episode. Also as a former Catholic (and a very young millennial) I do usually say I'm spiritual. I actually like organized religion (I like tradition and structure) but the beliefs of the Catholic Church is what keeps me away. it also doesn't help that I never believed in Jesus 😂

Jesus Christ, ladies! Matt Damon said that there's a difference between a pat on the ass and rape so no, he didn't put his foot in his mouth. If you can't see a difference between those 2 things, you're a fool. So Louie had a habit of pulling his dick out. The women in the room should have told him to put his fucking Tootsie Roll back in his pants. No women were destroyed and their life narative didn't take an abrupt turn because they saw a dick for fuck sakes!

First episode I was disappointed in. Defending Franken via the purposefully manipulative Mayer article was not what I expected to hear.

Loved this episode about fitting in (conformity) versus accepting who you are regarding sexuality, skin color, intellectual pursuits, and friendships. I really enjoy hearing women speak on these rich topics. I learn so much while at the same time I feel validated, which is a really interesting juxtaposition.

I'm glad my lying is okay 😄 like Megan and Grace I learned to lie from my mom. When someone would knock on the door my mom or I would answer the landline she would tell me to tell them that she was busy or wasn't home cx I learned quickly that I could lie my way out of doing things lol
