Thugs...

I see this term bantered around (by some more than others). 

What is a thug?

Is it a positive or negative term?

Can anyone be a thug?

What behaviors would a thug display?

Are there educated thugs? Legally employed thugs?

Are thugs predominately one race, ethnicity, religion, or gender?

Do thugs work in groups or individually?

Let's have a discussion on this element of our society.

I was just called a thug, as you know, and I'm presently single and legally employed. That makes me a slug!

A thug is a person that lacks tacos in their diet. The Thug is a person that cries out for the need to hug a taco.

I knew a person who tought they weren't a thug; but, I saw that person bake a taco cake and I knew she was a thug.

See a person who lacks tacos tries to bake an ice cream cake and wonder way it didn't work ... It is because she didn't hug her taco or her fur taco for that matter.

See the thug will realize how important the need for a taco is; but, feels guilty because she doesn't read the Bible and doesn't know the pure joy of a taco on one's life

For in the beginning was the word and the word was taco.

So that is my little theory on a thug ... A TacolessHUG.

I think of thugs as the people whose main approach to anything frustrating or annoying is to thump it.

I've known them to be short men, big brutes of men, women, well-educated and not. One was a math teacher in my high school, dh's junior high vice principal absolutely was a thug... a friend married one, we've known lots in the military (particularly, but not exclusively, in the military police) ...

Economically low class or low class philosophically?

"Thug" has become code for "black person in a low socioecomic bracket."

I know what it is supposed to mean...paid muscle for a criminal.  Occasionally it is used correctly.
