If the argument here is that we should go on doing the wrong thing because we've always done the wrong thing then it's definitely time to give it up.

I don't believe parents have the right to make body-modifications to their children for cultural, religious or aesthetic reasons. It's not your body. Children are not your accessories. They are people who should be able to decide whether to get pierced, tattoo'd or circumcised.

I’m not sure what Beta means either but from context and how excitedly JLP was shouting it, I think it means a person with a refined logic skills, knowledge of history, and a quick wit. Certainly means someone with saintly patience.

Ok, but how does that help one regain alpha status? Doesn't the Bible say that God is alpha and omega, so wouldn't that make all of us betas? Also, still trying to understand where mom and Marx fit in.

To clarify--to be beta is to be like one's noncapitalist, nonreligious mother or like one's mother but also noncapitalist and nonreligious? How much can one be like mom but still retain alpha status?

I think the only two possible counters here are 1) that ole school yard classic: I know you are, but what am I? OR 2) The nuclear option: I'm rubber and you're glue. wouldn't have stood a chance.

Watching yell BETA over and over at has convinced me that the only strategy needed to deal with anyone's argument is repeating something loudly and often and you win. Checkmate, Burgis. Also, I still don't know what a Beta-male is.

Well, never mind, then. I certainly wouldn't want the selfish desire of 44 million not to have their life choices narrowed by student debt to cause any "pain for investors."

I think the real reason is fake upset is because the youth concentration camp reality steals the thunder from his highly-respectful "adult fun camps" zingers.

Do people honestly enjoy receiving empty birthday cards at work? I always feel like it's one more thing that I have to pretend to smile about.

This fails both semantically and as a diversionary tactic. Concentration camps and deaths camps were not the same. did not compare it to the Holocaust. The horrors of migrant detention don't get a pass because other terrible things have happened elsewhere to other people.
