The video didn't play.  Hmm.  A lot like no republican senators seemed to see Trump's photo op with the bible in front of the church, tear-gassing peaceful protesters.


I don't like Trump, duh.

I don't like Biden, either.  But I'll say again, I would take a citizen chosen at random over our current president.  I'd take any of you over him.

No, I'm talking about anyone - the Koch Bros are just someone everyone knows. 

And I'm not suggesting they can't donate.  I'm saying a billionaire should not be able to donate more than I can, when it comes to political campaigns.  Campaigns should earn more based on the number of donations, not the amounts.  If this is already the case, then great. 

Is there something horrible with me wanting it limited to your own, home district/county/state?  I don't like the fact that a billionaire can sprinkle their money among 12 different, tight races to sway them all one way. 

I guess I'm just wanting equality in political monies.  How dare I.
So, you don't have a question mark after your last sentence.  Do you intend it to be a rhetorical question?
Anyway, about equality in political monies, what does that mean?  Seriously.
Does it mean that the Green Party is guaranteed to get the same amount of funding as the Democratic Party?  I suspect that you don't mean that, but if you don't mean that, what do you mean?
There are many things in life that we do not like, but we don't get to change them just because we don't like them.  That would make us something like a totalitarian state where only "good" viewpoints and "good" actions are allowed.

Well I explained that it was an actual question already, so he can go take his nap. 


Let's get snarky:  COVID victimizes the elderly at a severe rate?  Damn, there goes 100,000+ republican votes, down the drain.  Trump must not be good at math.
Snark is not a good thing if you want your respondents to respond respectfully.
It tends to beget more snark instead.

No.
A man was shouting at them and the cops rushed towards the line of protesters, pepper sprayed them, and yanked him out of the crowd.
While they allowed armed white people to scream in their faces without doing anything.



White privilege is every breath we take.
Same police force?  Same place?  It didn't look like it to me from what I saw.

It's been my experience that if I stand toe-to-toe with officers and shout at them, I get my ass kicked

no, I was not protesting the past few evenings

back in my youth, I fought the law,........ and the law won.

while at school in chicago I loved the cops.  Seemed to focus on bigger issues and not worried about some college kids.  Always had good interactions with them.

In missouri.. it's a mixed bag.  Some are great.  Others spit chew down your door when pulling you and your family over for doing 45 in a 35 while holding the butt of his gun (still at his side) and basically defining a napoleon complex.   I've come to the conclusion that either through training or practice many cops escalate in order to show dominance.    i'm not suggesting it is easy being a cop.   No... walking up to a car not knowing if they will shoot or not has to be stressful.   But I think given a chance to diffuse, many choose aggression.

the guy was 20-25 ft away... and basically yelled at the police about brutality.  They rushed him, sprayed the crowd and dragged him away.  It was not at all a good show by the cops.  I know it is only one example, but they have to be better.  The crowd was not at all near them or threatening.
OK.  But what you're saying is that the Kansas City cops mistreated a black protester while the Michigan State Police allowed far more leeway to white protesters.  Maybe the Kansas City P.D. is just a sort of wild-west/yayhoo police force while the Michigan State Police force is not.

So, you imply that I am a liar, but then in another breath demand that all posters treat you respectfully?
How is that working for you?

no.  I was just comparing the two.

Probably around a decade ago, I was having a discussion about problems in society and how to fix.   I was asked by a white friend if I would trade places with a black man.  It hit me.. I wouldn't.  It evolved my thoughts.   Many people have hard lives....  Some have  it easy... regardless of race.   But it was thought provoking.

For the record, I see myself as right of center.   I usually vote republican but have been leaning libertarian, especially the last national election.

Do you remember the 1961 book Black Like Me?

A white journalist from Texas successfully disguised himself as a black guy and traveled through the South in 1959.  It was an eye-opening experience for him.

I never read it.   I bet it would be eye-opening.

Fuck off.  I asked a question and you went off on me, and continue to. 


?  - THIS IS A QUESTION MARK.  When it is used, a question is being asked. 
Yeah, well do some research on your own and get your facts straight before asking absurd questions like this.

Facts matter, and in this day and age, educating oneself on an issue one finds important is easy, takes a few minutes.

And I'll continue to "go off" when I feel like it, and without using profanity.
