Since Columbine we have made changes in the high school environment that we hoped would prevent future massacres. No one would say they have worked.
Congratulations to Cliven Bundy, released from prison on January 8. Feds imprisoned you for a long time. Now a federal …
I like that, “all responsible states.” That’s like a bank with a broken safe telling its customers, after they’ve been robbed, “All responsible depositors must act together to counter the thieves’ ability to rob us again.”
What does the officer tell his family when he returns home that night? Does he tell them he did good work, because he’s safe while his victim lies on a gurney in the coroner’s office?
The pretense of legality founded on secrecy – where we accept secrecy as a condition of security, then illogically liken security with rule of law – can’t continue. We already have no respect for institutions that claim to protect us.
You might think government efforts to regulate gambling are about as hypocritical as government gets, until you realize the state has its hand in almost every racket identified as dangerous – or beneficial – to one group or another.
Congress plays, “Which one is a Weinstein?” After it identifies those guys, it asks, “Are you a major, totally worthless, disreputable Weinstein? Or are you minor, possibly worthless Weinstein, perhaps likable enough to keep around?”
Trooper man shot into the car several times.
Don’t look at a policeman the wrong way,
Don’t say the wrong thing, because
He’ll put bullets through the driver’s side door.
Do not let restrictions on speech take hold. It is the most insidious form of control, as it requires no laws, no punishments, no formal court proceedings.
To use a popular oceanic metaphor, removal of the individual mandate would not cause a tsunami of bad consequences that would overwhelm us. Defenders of established institutions too commonly use fear of the unknown to warn people about change.
The part of Trump’s presidency I like the best is his feud with the intelligence community. It’s fun to see …
In this respect, police officers are like priests who rape children. The church protected its own. Bishops made sure priests who preyed on children were transferred away from parishes where they committed their crimes, so rapists could prey on unknowing victims somewhere else. Similarly, police officers who rape women in their custody find a way to continue their so-called police work, where they can find other victims of their coercion.
