  1. In general, along with discussing politics, I dislike discussing religion even more. I hate how married the two have become with one another. And, while I might be mistaken, the biggest reason for that is the entire pro-life vs. pro-choice stance. For many, many Christians, it's the single biggest issue that determines who they vote for. And the reason I have such a big problem with it, even though I understand why they are choosing how they choose, is summed in in the following quote almost 20 years ago from a Benedictine Nun: "I do not believe that just because you are opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, a child educated, a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is." For me, claiming to be pro-life/anti-abortion yet still endorsing policies that don't support families, education, and generally "pro-life" things for people who are actually living on the planet and in need is a hypocritical stance to take. So when those politicians/lawmakers who are Christian are supporting policies such as separating families through deportation or denying healthcare to those who need it the most or any other number of things that generally don't jive with the true idea of "pro-life" are the ones that Christians are voting in, I similarly have a hard time believing they are truly following Christian ideals in being pro-life. I find it to be the exact opposite. ETA -- Here's a link to her quote and further comments on it
  2. It's pretty clear how interested you are in weeding the "bad cops" out.
  3. There was a truck on the highway this morning with a huge Trump flag flying from the truck bed with the words "Making Libs Cry" under Trump 2020. That's where we are now.
  4. Yeah, the NYT is one of the shadiest outfits ever.
  5. Right. Except he's now the President and has been for the last 3+ years and has done nothing to fix it. After blaming Hillary for not fixing it (as if she could do it herself). Shocking turn of events, I know.
  6. From back in 2016: At the final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton argued that her billionaire rival’s freeloading was outrageous. And the Republican nominee did not disagree. “We’re entitled because of the laws that people like her passed to take massive amounts of depreciation on other charges, and we do it,” Trump explained. “And all of her donors — just about all of them — I know Buffett took hundreds of millions of dollars, Soros, George Soros, took hundreds of millions of dollars … And you know, Hillary, what you should have done, you should have changed the law when you were a United States senator … You should have changed the law. But you won’t change the law, because you take in so much money.”
  7. This. If all of the things up to this point haven't convinced his supporters, there's nothing that will. I remember back in the day when inauguration crowd size lying was a big deal.
  8. Also, let's get to this statement. I agree. How do we go about doing it? Why isn't it being done? More importantly, why does it seem like multiple instances of doing the exact opposite when supervisors keep "bad cops" on the force? Lots of lip service with nothing truly being done about this.
  9. Strange, all of these tax threads have been eerily quiet from supporters. They seem to be around discussing the Supreme Court but crickets on this.
  10. You have no issue with 3 officers firing 32 shots? There was even a break of a minute with no shooting before they opened fire again.
  11. Where did I say anything of the sort? There were many aspects of this whole incident that were awful. What I don't have an issue with is the police returning fire when they were shot at. Never did, never said I did. What I do have an issue with is returning fire recklessly. That's actually what one of the officers was indicted with, so I'm not the only one who thinks that. As a trained officer, who is already on alert since they are the ones breaking into the home in the middle of the night with guns drawn, you can't just recklessly return fire without regard to what's surrounding you, even when fired at. She didn't have a weapon but died. Just an FYI, Walker fired his gun once. The police returned fire, shooting 32 times. I'm sure you're ok with that, though, as they needed to protect themselves. Nothing reckless about that especially when none hit Walker and 6 hit Breanna.
  12. Might be the only time you ever see this, but Barcelona is currently 19th out of 20 in La Liga. At least for the next 40 minutes.
