Re: 2020 Election

Because the goal is not to "'reform," "train," or "improve" the police. It's to get them off the streets.

"Reform," "training" and "improvement" requires a lot more resources and a lot more...

Re: 2020 Election

Agreed. I couldn't believe his handlers let him start giving virus press conferences again. Political malpractice.

Re: Defund The Police

I don't view Hillary Clinton as an extremist. She is a progressive.

I am much more aligned with someone like Dukakis, who is my role model in American politics. The difference is Dukakis is a...

Re: Defund The Police

Why do you keep referring to Marxism etc in these posts as though it's right-wing posters doing name-calling?

Patrisse Cullors, the Youth Liberation Front etc themselves directly say they are...

Re: General Election - 2020 edition

If it becomes legalised, there will still be a market for the illegal dealers, doing bootleg, because taxes etc are likely going to make it unaffordable (or unaffordable for the quantity desired) by...

Re: Defund The Police

Considering that most of your "arguments" are based on personal and character attacks on other posters rather than facts or information (and that is what gets threads closed as per the sticky), I...

Re: Italian beach resorts

San Remo. Don't know if it will deliver "hustle and bustle" but there's a historic and see-and-be-seen casino, a quaint old town, and mountains etc nearby.

Re: 2020 Election

Democrats believe government exists to help people. Republicans believe it exists to help business.

That's a quote from Rush Limbaugh actually.

Re: 2020 Election

Oh OK then! So why do Patrisse Cullors and all the other leaders refuse to disassociate, denounce and repudiate? And why do you denounce police attempts to rein in the criminal gangs you are...

Re: 2020 Election

Sure. I condemn and deplore government violence against non-violent protesters. I don't vet my values or beliefs through an ideological prism first, which confuses the hell out of you and a few...

Re: Defund The Police

You did not answer my questions.

Speaking out against and deploring violence, is "self-important sounding?" Oh my word. What a comment.

Re: 2020 Election

Joe Biden leads Donald Trump 51-44% in North Carolina, according to the latest NBC News/Marist Poll.

If the poll is accurate and stays that way, the rout will be on.

Re: Defund The Police

I would assume there is some legal or financial ramification of declaring a "riot?" Like there is when declaring a "state of emergency?"

Re: 2020 Election

The group currently fronting the protests (in the PNW) are the Youth Liberation Front. One of their stated objectives is to end capitalism. Patrisse Cullors boasts that she is a "trained Marxist."

The Youth Liberation Front is not a credible anti-racism movement.

Re: Defund The Police

From what I can tell through media reports, a court order has blocked or suspended implementation of the restraining order you are referring to. My interpretation could be incorrect.

Re: 2020 Election

They also add that police are "terrorists" and that one of their mission statements...

Re: 2020 Election

One other thing - it will hurt Biden if the media shapes a narrative that his VP pick, whoever it is, is some kind of president-in-waiting because of Biden's age. Biden is the headline on the ticket,...

Re: 2020 Election

The question is, have the polling companies...

Re: Defund The Police

Applying that quote, in the way you are applying it, is frankly bizarre.

By the way - Chomsky's quote was not intended to try and silence people who disagreed with him. You are aware, he signed...
