The Soap Opera / Re: Moment of Silence
A year ago, this post in the Hawkins thread broke the old TR:

Tulsa leaders urge peace after cop acquitted in man's death
yeah right. I urged for peace from the cop before he shot the unarmed black dude. Burn the fucking city down.

This is about officer Betty Shelby, who pulled her gun on an empty handed man, then shot and killed him.

She fired her weapon, she told a Tulsa County courthouse on Monday, because "I feared for my life."

"I did everything I could to stop this," she added. "Crutcher's death is his fault."

Testy if you have time watch the 60 minutes interview of Betsy Shelby.  She basically found everything Terence did suspicious and vaguely threatening. 
Here's a little bit:

More Americans support Trump's impeachment than oppose it for first time, poll finds

Quote
More American support impeaching President Donald Trump than oppose it, a new poll shows.

The poll, conducting by Democratic polling company Public Policy Polling, found that 48 per cent supported such a move, while 41 per cent opposed it.

I wonder why Linnaeus didn't group bees and seagulls together since they both have wings.  :dunno:

Probably to show his support for darwinism and get invited to all those fantastic darwin club parties they were having at the time.

ETA What faid says works too ;)

Blaze article about garbage ann coulter upset about trump not being horrible enough or some other crap

I'm not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But this isn't North Korea, and if he doesn't keep his promises I'm out. This is why we voted for him. I think everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues.

All Dave has learned on these forums over the years, it seems, is to parrot people's critiques of his understanding back at us.

Which means that he is now totally insulated from any possible disturbance to his worldview unless it actually physically impacts on his life (e.g. a dead piglet).

No idea can penetrate his skull because it meets a polished mirror; no idea can leave it either, because it is reflected back at him as confirmation.

Extraordinary.


And now that one will be added to his repertoire.

Is Dave Apocalypse?

He's at least more capable of producing coherent sentences.

I'd bet Dave would be as coherent as Trump if you were talking to him face to face or an interviewer where he couldn't hide like he can on the internet.
Lol ... that's why I do so poorly in sales. Oh wait.
:facepalm:

Dave, he was giving you somewhat of a compliment.
Essentially that your verbal skills are better than your written skills.

Your're welcome, Mr. Reading Comprehension.

I can't find which 8 vehicles I'm supposed to be nesting, but it doesn't matter ... ANY 8 vehicles can be arranged into a nested hierarchy.  For example ...

WATER
-Engine powered
-Wind powered
--Sunfish sailboat
-Human powered
--Bicycles
---Schwinn Tempest (made up name)

LAND
-Wheeled
--Horse powered
--Engine powered
---Diesel
---Gas
----Volvo S80
-Non wheeled

AIR
-Fixed wing
--Jet
--Recip
---Cessna 152
-Rotorcraft
--Helicopter
---Bell Jet Ranger

That's not 8 but I got bored adding items so I think you can finish it up on your own ... you get the idea.
:facepalm:

Socialism just enables the greedy people in society.   :whyyou:

Now lets talk about how unregulated capitalism will benefit everybody.

Seems like some BS Tea Party stunt.

Nevada and Maryland probably thought it was about Trump but then realized what their intentions were.

We see four major abuses perpetrated by the federal government.
These abuses are not mere instances of bad policy. They are driving us towards an age of "soft tyranny" in which the government does not shatter men's wills but "softens, bends, and guides" them. :stopper:  If we do nothing to halt these abuses, we run the risk of becoming nothing more than "a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd." :stopper:  (Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1840)

1. The Spending and Debt Crisis

The $19 trillion national debt is staggering, but it only tells a part of the story. Under standard accounting practices, the federal government owes around $100 trillion more in vested Social Security benefits and other programs. This is why the government cannot tax its way out of debt. :awgee:  Even if it confiscated everything, it would not cover the debt.

2. The Regulatory Crisis

The federal bureaucracy has placed a regulatory burden upon businesses that is complex, conflicted, and crushing.  :whyyou: Little accountability exists when agencies--rather than Congress--enact the real substance of the law. Research from the American Enterprise Institute shows that since 1949, federal regulations have lowered the real GDP growth by 2% and made America 72% poorer.

3. Congressional Attacks on State Sovereignty

For years, Congress has been using federal grants to keep the states under its control. :stopper:  Combining these grants with federal mandates (which are rarely fully funded), Congress has turned state legislatures into their regional agencies rather than respecting them as truly independent republican governments.

A radical social agenda and an invasion of the rights of the people accompany all of this.   :stopper:  :whyyou:  While significant efforts have been made to combat this social erosion, these trends defy some of the most important principles.

4. Federal Takeover of the Decision-Making Process

The Founders believed that the structures of a limited government would provide the greatest protection of liberty. Not only were there to be checks and balances between the branches of the federal government, power was to be shared between the states and federal government, with the latter only exercising those powers specifically granted in the Constitution.

Collusion among decision-makers in Washington, D.C., has replaced these checks and balances. The federal judiciary supports Congress and the White House in their ever-escalating attack upon the jurisdiction of the fifty states. :stopper:

We need to realize that the structure of decision-making matters. Who decides what the law shall be is as important as what is decided. The protection of liberty requires a strict adherence to the principle that power is limited and delegated.

Washington, D.C., does not believe this principle, as evidenced by an unbroken practice of expanding the boundaries of federal power. In a remarkably frank admission, the Supreme Court rebuffed a challenge to the federal spending power despite acknowledging that power had grown far beyond the bounds envisioned by the Founders:

This framework has been sufficiently flexible over the past two centuries to allow for enormous changes in the nature of government. The Federal Government undertakes activities today that would have been unimaginable to the Framers in two senses; first, because the Framers would not have conceived that any government would conduct such activities; and second, because the Framers would not have believed that the Federal Government, rather than the States, would assume such responsibilities. Yet the powers conferred upon the Federal Government by the Constitution were phrased in language broad enough to allow for the expansion of the Federal Government's role.

New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144, 157 (1992).

we've seen time and again with senate races that the candidates matter, and a shitty one can very easily blow a winnable race.  it's not just about the letter next to their name.

Past your own intervening post? Jesus Dave, you're going full So-crates here.

It might be an unconscious admission that he thinks his own posts are "chaff".

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
It does strike me that the blatant cashing in/corruption is an indication that he doesn't even care at this point - he knows he's not going to be able to avoid impeachment at some point, and he's just lining his pockets while he can so he can retire richer than Croesus albeit in disgrace.

I hope he goes to jail. gets guillotined.
