But did the court say it was unconstitutional? Or did they just say we are the court how does our ass taste? We don't know.

The stop and frisk policy which was put in by Giulianni not Midget Mike, saved thousands of lives, the vast overwhelming majority of them black lives.


So when it comes to valuing black lives and treating them like they matter, Giullinai and his aggressive policing, no joke probably saved 10k black lives.

And if you want to extend that to other cities which adopted these policies, probably saved 100s of thousands of lives.


Because people have forgotten that in the bad old days, big cities used to have murders that numbered in the thousands, now big cities average murders in the low to mid hundreds.


So when people talk down aggressive policing what they are saying is that they would rather have black people die and live in misery in order to further their own nefarious agendas.

SC is 27% African American and they make up roughly half of the Democrat electorate.

The worst-case scenario would be that something, God forbid, happened to Trump (the guy is 73, after all, and we all know that he has no shortage of unhinged enemies).

The GOPe would then replace him with Yeb! or Paul Motherfucking Ryan or Schitt Romney or some such cuck, who would then proceed to throw the election. Again.

Result: President Communist.

That is why I think voting for Bernie is too clever by half. If you simply must cast a "strategic vote" in the Dem primary, you should probably vote for the least objectionable candidate rather than the most. Then if the worst happens and that person wins, you'll still be able to look at yourself in the mirror.

If you simply must cast a "strategic vote" in the Dem primary, you should probably vote for the least objectionable candidate rather than the most.

Probably. We were there about 6 months, thru Christmas.

I made a friend there and we decided we were going to gather and sell mistletoe for Christmas. Once we were down by the river, I don't remember which one, and my buddy climbed out on a tree that was overhanging the river. He got about halfway up and CRACK the whole tree broke in half and he fell into the nearly frozen river and started getting washed downstream. There was a pretty good current. I ran downstream a little bit to where I could grab him and pull him up the bank. Thus ended our planned entrepreneurship.

All those secret weapons were folly. They needed more fighter pilots, STG IIIs, PKWw Vs and a fighting retreat by the Wehrmacht.

Werner Heisenberg met with Bohr. The meeting seemed to signal he was not on board with any effort to get to an atomic bond, which he knew was theoretically possible. I think they could have done it by 1947, with a focused effort.

There are some SF short stories on this. But it just means Germany gets hit with at least 2 atomic bombs. We planed to drop up to 17 atomic bombs on Japan, and Germany was spared that. Instead, the Red Army exacting a very personal price on Germans for Hitler's mistakes.

Anyone have any experience with shower head filters? We have city water and I've developed skin issues. However, when visiting friends who use well water they cleared up. Had a casual conversation with a person who has to have these installed due to a child having major skin issues from chlorinated, treated water.

I think key is Elite University. I think some people are under impression that any degree from Ivy/similar elite will get you anywhere. Is it true ? Maybe. Maybe not.
Posted by: runner at February 29, 2020 07:56 AM (zr5Kq)

Yep, and it's sad many of those girls won't even talk to a dude who is in a trade school and is highly likely to be making 60-80k immediately following graduation. Nope, they'd rather date Mr. Feminist from their BS gender studies class who graduates with the degree, but then ends up working at Starbucks. Now, if they're looking for the guy whose goal is to work at a top 5 law firm and make partner, then yeah, I believe credentialism plays a role there.

Do I think I could have ended up where I am if I had graduated from a state school instead of a little-Ivy degree? Absolutely.

Both parties are at major junction points. Politics is never going to be the same and we already know it. The R base, the normal people, just aren't going to stand for another mealy-mouthed RINO who speaks in bromides and keeps moving the needle ever leftward anyway. The D base, the kooks, crazies and brainwashed yute, are hellbent on socialism/communism...such as they think they know it.

277 You pretty much have to have a masters degree here to get a permanent teaching job. That takes 6 years of college but it doesn't have to be from some Ivy league college. My next door neighbor from Dublin GA got a teaching job by going to a small college in Millegeville.

Yep. Critically important also are your recommendations from your student teaching gigs. The Mrs. teaches special education at THE large midwestern university. Half the kids blow off their student teaching responsibilities and then get the shitty recommendations they deserve.

Good luck getting in the door for even an interview in that case. All the heads of all the colleges/universities and school systems know each other.

Op Chaos sounds like a good idea in theory not sure that it is effective. Original Op Chaos was Rush trying to get Hillary in over Obama.

I would think the current goal of an Op Chaos would be to ensure that no candidate reaches the end of the race with an outright majority of delegates. Having 3 or 4 over 15% candidates will do that. So my thought is whoever is in 3d or 4th in your state.

But then what? Suppose that means a second ballot selection of a candidate, and wiser heads are actually wiser and pick a better candidate?

People are stupid. Stupidity is infinite.

Yet stupid people often thing they're really smart, and will act like they meant to do whatever is going on.

The fatal weakness of the left - which is now coming out - is that they have no idea what their future looks like. It can't be both feminist AND trans. Extinction Rebellion assumes people give a damn about children, but the left wants them dead anyway.

It's just a decadent temper tantrum.

If Bernie is nominated, his rabid fan base will have their interests aligned with the party. They are extremely motivated.

If Bernie gets robbed, their interests will be contrary to the party and they will be very, very pissed off.

Personally, I'm hoping he gets robbed. The Dem party with a brownshirt army like that at their back will be more dangerous. If they're united, the fury points at us; if they're split, they'll cancel and attack and pogrom each other.

The point is: The Water Heater accumulates a lot of sediment and it collect into a big pile at the bottom.
Eventually, that stuff makes it way into the hot water pipes.

Depending on what the water is like, and how it is treated, mineral sediment can develop fast or slow.

I agree with your point, but I think he will get robbed somehow even if he wins the nomination, which would make his minions even more furious.

In fact, yes it is. The original Aggie joke.

back around the turn of the 20th century, the State of Texas had been willed the rights to hundreds of thousands of acres in far West Texas, very arid, thought to be worthless. This was in turn given to the University systems that were being set up at the time. The A&M regents didn't think it had value, so they didn't want it and thought they had done well by making the UT system take all of those assets.

Then oil was discovered in West Texas. Those rights have turned into tens of billions of dollars, and they are still producing today. that's where the bulk of UT's endowment comes from.

and it could have belonged to the Aggies, and they turned it down.

Does anyone else have anxiety dreams? Basically just nightmares, but they leave you awash in all the bad physical effects from stress. You feel tired and frightened and worn down...from sleeping. Then you have to get up and deal with all the real-life stressors.

And as for student loans, I paid for my tuition at a state university with scholarships and work. Graduated college with a good job, $10k in the bank, a new car (a Honda Civic, nothing fancy for me), and no debt except the car loan. This was not the result of "luck" but rather hard work, and boy, does it piss me off when I'm told I owe my success to "privilege".
