Would it not be easier to just tattoo "I am Stupid" on your fore head.

You all are right, of course. I wouldn't expect individuals to throw themselves to the wolves like that. Consider this a thought experiment.

Still, it seems like some peaceful demonstrations may be in order. We need to sit in the front of the bus and eat at the white lunch counter. If we act like second-class citizens that's what we'll be.

Everyone remembers Spartacus to this day and what he stood for. Do you remember the name of the general that finally defeated him? I didn't think so.

Believe me , I'm sure everyone here can understand your frustration and I'm sadly sure there aren't enough of us to matter , protest wise .

When Black people were seeking equal rights , there were millions of them .

When Gloria Steinem had women burning their bras , there were millions of them , too . (and the bra manufacturers rejoiced , knowing they would all come to their senses and realize there are times a bra can be a good thing ... Like while jogging )

But us ? We could protest all we want , burn down all the Balsa and foam trees , and tonight's news will STILL be about which Kartrashian is sleeping with whom , and we wouldn't even earn mention in and around all the BS political ads they push every 12 minutes .....

Always nice to poke a little clean fun , when able ...

But anyway , here's a question for all the single guys out here ;

How many of ya will now tell the ladies your tryin to put the moves on , "I'm an FAA registered UAS pilot" , , now , rather than "I fly RC model planes" , when she asks ya what your hobbies are ?

"Gee , an FAA registered UAS pilot ?" she wonders ??? "Must be something important , OK , I'll sleep with him"

and the deal is sealed , all the while she has no clue you actually just dink around with toy planes !!!

Ah to be young & single again ......
