  1. Or maybe we should have a thread dedicated to the issues white conservatives or white men face rather than bringing it up in every thread about another groups problems. I think it's an interesting topic that is often derailed because of the context it is usually discussed. On its own, I think I think it is worth discussing. I'll be honest that "all lives matter" was something that made sense to me when people first started saying "black lives matter". But, my current position is that I should be able to discuss the fact that, yes, black lives do matter without feeling the need to make sure people agree that all lives matters too. Saying black lives matter doesn't imply that other lives don't matter any more than me saying "I love you" to my wife indicates that I don't love other people. A group wants people to acknowledge their value. My refusal to do so in the past was largely driven by my stubbornness and misunderstanding of the situation.
  2. I'm generally not a fan of reaching some grand conclusions based off a photo or short video clip. There's potentially a lot of stuff left out that we aren't seeing. But, it's kind of hard to come up with reasonable, believable explanations for many of these that put these particular police in a good light. Stitch all the videos and pictures together and I'm starting to think that maybe there's a problem.

  4. I know people who won't even watch movies or listen to music involving people with different politics, so not a big surprise that so many people couldn't be married to someone with very different views.
  5. A couple questions: "As Officer Lane began speaking with Mr. Floyd, he pulled his gun out and pointed it at Mr. Floyd’s open window and directed Mr. Floyd to show his hands." Why did he pull his gun? Seems like that should be in here, but maybe not since Lane isn't the defendant? "The defendant went to the passenger side and tried to get Mr. Floyd into the car from that side and Lane and Kueng assisted. The defendant pulled Mr. Floyd out of the passenger side of the squad car at 8:19:38 p.m. and Mr. Floyd went to the ground face down and still handcuffed." So after failing to get him the back of the car on the driver's side because Floyd was saying he's claustrophobic and resisted, they got him in the car from the passenger side...and then took him out? Why take him out?
  6. This thread finally has an incident where I’m pretty sure everyone agrees the cop was wrong and yet there is still right v left bickering. I know, I know; they started it.
  7. She's not very political at all but votes on state propositions and primaries? That seems like a pretty rare combination.
  8. I think the idea is that they are spooked that things getting better will be short-lived and the longer-term effects will be that things get worse. It's similar to the idea of tanking in sports. The view is probably analogous to a team going through short-term tough times in order to improve their ability for long-term success.
  9. I just looked at my TSP for the first time since very early this year. Including today's gains, I'm down about 9% from the high but about 9% up from one year ago. Up about 35% from the low two months ago. Been a crazy ride, but have to keep perspective and be happy with 9% increase in one year.
  10. No longer available with Prime.
  11. Showed Holy Grail to my kids recently. I think they laughed once. I did not laugh nearly as many times as I remember laughing back in the day. I'd rather sit around with friends quoting the movie than actually watching the movie.
  12. They think Trump is more likely to win the election, I assume.
  13. I wonder if a predictions market thread would fly here. Probably not, but it would be nice if we could see people put money behind some claims like:
