    According to my "cognitive privilege" the people who come up with stuff are farkin' morons.

    I was taught to use that lump on my shoulders for something more than a hat stand or keeping my ears apart. However, and this is important, I learned to pull my pants up to a comfortable level over my ass. Made me the farkin' geenyus I be today. My theory is that any smarts ya may have leak out your backside so it's better to keep the drawers up. People that don't often keep their drawers up get called "ass" and for good reason!

    The only equality that should exist for humans is under the law.

    News flash: It's a privilege just to exist at all.

    Like it says in the linked article,....Life is a huge cosmic lottery full of winners and losers. I'd go even further and say that no matter who you are, you are a winner just to have been born at all.

    In fact, the odds of you even existing at all, were stacked against you to a staggering degree. Yes, there's the odds of which one of the millions of sperm cells and which egg ended up being you, but it goes way beyond even those 100 million-t0-one odds.

    The human genome has about 3 billion base pairs with 4 possible choices for each. That results in 10 to the 1800000000 potential combinations. That's more than the estimated number of atoms in the observable Universe.

    Just to give you an idea of how big of a number that really is, a deck of regular playing cards "only" has about as many possible combinations as there are atoms in the Earth.

    So the odds of "you" existing exactly as you are, is so far off the charts to as not even seeming to be real, yet here you are reading this.

    Growing old is the privilege. Being grouchy is an entitlement.

    As unfortunate as it is I have had time to mull over this gem of stupidity. The truly most ugly part of this "cognitive privilege" BS is that it is itself, as a term, so racist and derogatory of blacks, Latinos, Asians and any other non-white, non-American person as to be wholly insulting whenever it is spoken regardless of to whom it is spoken to or of. It is the same as saying that anyone who does not have "cognitive privilege" is dumber than a box of rocks and is therefore a victim of evil/white/americans and is too stupid to realize it.

    Liberal terms have no meaning if you try and apply logic to them. These idiotic hate arrows they like to sling at people they don't like only have meaning in their Utopia where logic doesn't exist!

    The soft bigotry of the left continues as they maintain low expectations for minorities or in this case, dummies. Can we get this country back on a merit based system and stop making excuses? Some will do better than others, that's the way it goes. If you want everything equal, then that's communism.
