  1. I'd like to see a debate with more than one view of police qualified immunity, the stupid drug war, drug war looting, eminent domain, Section 230, and authorizing unitary military forever. But the CPD will most likely continue poling the electorate. If there's a debate, only the Duopoly view of those subjects will be presented.
  2. Complete with a link. That's a lot of trouble considering I provided the source, but OK. I take it from your response that they're not a randumbly-approved source? Ah well, we don't count things said when in full paranoid upswing do we? I remember that thread I think. Rando was in full laced Buddha sticks mode. Calling me a "Jewish shill" for posting material from the Anti-Defamation League is "full paranoid upswing" huh? Nah, excuse it all you want, but randumb is an antisemitic asshole and his conspir
  3. SCOTUS asked to look at qualified immunity again in Cope v Cogdill Really? You've decided to strangle yourself and you have in front of you a phone cord and a sheet. Does anyone pick the sheet? Or, more on point, if you know that a sheet could be used for that purpose, do you also know a wire could be too? I think the answer is yes, of course you do, everyone does. But that answer doesn't give benefit of the doubt to cops. Now we have another Justice who looks to cops like she might just need stopping and frisking. I think it's no coincidence that the two Justices w
  4. You know how to enable peer interaction? Turn on the internet. Cuba fails. Venezuela's a Cuba wannabe. Pakistan knowingly sheltered Osama bin Laden for years. Is Libya even a country again? I thought that the NY Times said Hillary reduced it to a "failed state and terrorist haven" just a few years ago.
  5. I'm not even sure how/whether that could be done. I'm just using them as I found them. A big pile of 16' rough cut 2 x 6's has appeared out there today. Might get it decked this weekend but I just had hernia surgery and am not allowed to do anything useful so that's my neighbor's boy and his buddy in the pic doing the work. They'll be back when they get back.
  6. Cuba, Pakistan, Venezuela, Libya, Somalia, and other shithole countries.
  7. Me either but I saw Mike Rowe feed a cow to a shredder on Dirty Jobs. Because this is true Right up until the alcohol is saturated, at which point something called phase separation happens and you wind up with low octane fuel floating on top of ethanol goo.
  8. Glad to have been wrong about this one. The feds have agreed to return the armored car company loot So that's a good result in this case but only a few looting victims manage to find a nutjob law firm to take on the government. Most don't and won't see such a change of heart.
  9. How dare you??? I'm outraged and sharpening my darts!
  10. Price went up! A family of them has figured out how to get into the chicken run and steal leftover food at night. I got some trail cam pics of them but they're not good. Just glowing eyes inside the coop. But I do have a new picture. Bridge beams bolted to steel rails sitting in reinforced concrete piers in the ground. Waiting on the wood to deck it.
  11. ATF's New 'Ghost Gun' Rules Are as Clear as Mud Everyone seems sure of one thing: here come the lawsuits.
  12. Pretty much my experience. The end of my senior year in college I had a couple of fun, blow-off courses and that was it. Waste of time but I had fun. I got AP credit in American History and in Calculus. The former got me out of some basic class, the latter got me in way over my head and I got the only D of my academic life. (I did manage to get an F in phys ed once.) I'm sure I could have gotten AP credit in Latin but my teacher was also my girlfriend's dad and the Dean and my relationship with the man was complicated. I was mad at him and wasn't going to make him look good by getting ano
  13. When considering relations between Russia and Finland, as with every other issue, it's important to note that I sometimes say bad things about TeamD gun bans and confiscation programs, so thanks for bringing that into the discussion yet again.
  14. That's nice, but given the member states, the UN HRC is kind of a rogue's gallery.
  15. Dang, you're on a passive-aggressive tear! Can you make a few posts without making any reference to me? Search says you're up to about 500 posts talking about me, wrong every single time. And can't even figure out which one of us is being passive aggressive! But it looks like Sol's got your back, so GOOO TEAM!
  16. Sheriff Villanueva launches criminal investigation into leak of use-of-force video Doesn't like cameras or whistleblowers, do Villanueva qualifies as "bad cop" two different ways in my book.
  17. FBI Respects Affluenza Judge Wilkins' reaction is why I'm glad we just got a public defender on the Supreme Court. You get a different reaction when it's your client's door (defender) vs your target's door (prosecutor.)
  18. Democrats exasperated with Biden on gun control I hope they stay exasperated.
  19. That's actually an easier situation to deal with in a way. Once exposed, they won't find any defenders at all. Drug war looting, OTOH, enjoys bipartisan political support. Much harder to eradicate.
  20. I was aware of the theory that the Jews demolished our buildings on 9/11 but are you saying it was actually Russian Jews? The things I learn here!
  21. Lots in there about who/what they were not. It'll be interesting when there are details about who/what they were.
  22. Show us something. ANYTHING. That gives this even one iota of proof. One, slim iota of proof. There hasn't been, and there won't be, and in the end Trump's lapdog will just say he was misled and had no idea then entire thing was an overblown fake. Sorry. His bad. But I will say this. I hope the FBI is involved and investigating. Because I hope ANY accusation like this at the highest level is taken seriously. Unlike so many of our republican friends who just want to handwave it all away when the issue is with Republican. That's the difference. Instead of chantin
  23. ... Here’s hoping Pettway is right and the federal government starts paying attention to Brookside, Alabama. Kinda cute that the sheriff thought the feds would do something other than exacerbate drug war looting. The President helped write these laws, earning praise from Jeff Sessions in the process, and people wonder why AG Garland hasn't reversed what AG Sessions did on drug war looting? Because it's embarrassing to reverse your boss' political legacy, that's why. Anyway, it's not the feds who will notice something like this and help. It's nutjobs, agai
  24. I suspect some view this as a continuation of the 2014 invasion, so the distinction is not that clear. So we can't really agree on what we're stopping nor for how long, but can we at least agree that the "then leave" part of your fantasy is just that? When did we ever "just leave" once we started meddling?
