The question is, how are all of you doing? Is there anything you want to talk about? Any problems, any good things happening currently or that have happened recently?

Your thoughts are welcome here, and don’t mind PM’ing me if you want to talk about something

You sound like another liberal therapist who wants me to be in touch with my “feelings”.

But, bill…..you ARE in touch w/ your feelings….as dark as they maybe.
It appears that your problem is that of a typical far-right “conservative” in that you don’t give a fuck about anyone else’s.

Yeah, let’s blame the wormy cats for coming to our back porch because we toss out our food scraps.

This is directly Obama’s fault.

No, not unless Obama has suddenly become a conservative GOPer.

I think you have mixed the players and missed the point.
Plus, keep in mind that Bill is telling the story.
And, you might do a little research on how prayer in PUBLIC schools was removed and why it was.

I will be wearing a hidden camera and recording all video with it.

I do not have to learn, others will learn from me no matter how long it takes.
Again, the quote I live by:

“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”

Now I see why you have that quote and how you apply it.

Not necessarily.

If they don’t coincide….they don’t.
What part of that is too difficult for you to understand?

You still like to fight and say the exact opposite of what others think, even if you agree with them. lol

Hmmmm….what an odd way to perceive what is only partially “true”.
But, the agree part really stumps me.
I’m assuming that you are inferring that I might agree w/ someone in one area, yet disagree w/ them in another…..imagine that.

Now comment on the story, soldier.

If you actually have been around this forum as long as you indicate, then you already know my stance on illegals being in the U.S.

If that’s true then the evidence will bear it out. We implement the cameras first, and then take action depending on what they actually reveal.

How about that approach?

Somehow, the black community will still blame whites. Mark my words. It’s far easier to blame others than to take a deep look at your own community and fix the damn problems. This all sadly goes back to the tribal roots in Africa. Do the research and understand why black people in the USA are having such at time evolving their communities.

Okay, now I get it….
You ACTUALLY ARE a racist.
You think the “short-comings” of Blacks are hereditary.

Why not consider that their current “negative” attitudes might be a result of cultural suppression for generations in America?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Louis Head needs to be arrested for inciting riot.

Bill, if you have been around the forum for as long as you say you have, why don’t you post in the manner that is acceptable? Typically, just putting up links and C&P’s isn’t deemed worthy.

Usually, some accompanying personal input/opinion is expected.

But, I shall endeavor to bring out a point:
Are you somehow TRYING to say that the activities of a particular CRIMINAL ELEMENT that already existed is somehow indicative of what the whole of the protesters represent?

We already have one individual who thinks such incidents and his own anecdotal experiences are worthy of being sterling examples of the truth. Do you know him? Did he send you to us?
Who are you?
Why the need for so many dumb-ass alts?
Do you not realize doing this greatly weakens your points?

You went to the school….on successive days?
You talked to the head of the school?
You looked into every room for a flag?
You know every reason behind every rule of the school…..a PRIVATE one?
Why are you bitching against a PRIVATE school having 3 teachers for 21 kids?
Do you not realize that THIS is the reason her parents are sending her to that PRIVATE school?
Why do you think what you experienced is so supreme to that PRIVATE school;
other than the “multi-cultural” things going on there?

I had a to make another account, “BillCosbySexMan” Was banned for being an ’inappropriate username" for some reason.

Gee, I would think that with all that fine education you say you got, you would be able to figure out why.

But, since this new account is destined to be banned, I guess that’s strike two on education for you….eh?

Did you even try “to learn” from that experience?
Being taught HOW TO LEARN is actually, believe-it-or-not, job 1 for a school.

Perhaps if you WERE TO LEARN the difference between a Montessori PRIVATE school and your public one, you might have a better understanding of why those differences are there.

“Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori and characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.”

Topic: Serious Discussion / Darren Wilson a murderer.

IOD, either you wrote it or read it.
Most of your points have been covered.

The point I put to ppl who want to opine on the shooting is this: WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE?

You have just stopped a HUGE kid—having just strong-arm robbed a store….likely still quite “charged up” from that incident—who likely doesn’t know that you don’t know about the robbery.

Regardless of what attitude you use to “advise” that HUGE kid and his buddy (that’s TWO ppl, folks) to get out of the street, it is still a lawful order and would be a damn good idea to obey.

But, this HUGE kid reaches into your SUV (a shoulder-2-shoulder level factor) and punches you a good one (or more?) to the head; you pull your weapon and fire it; the HUGE kid forcefully pushes you back into your SUV as you open the door and commence to exit; and then ceases HIS ASSAULT & BATTERY on you to merrily waltz, NOT RUN, on down the street.

That HUGE kid has just committed a felony. It is your DUTY to arrest him. Regardless of what transpired before that HUGE kid comes rushing at you….THAT HUGE KID IS COMING TOWARDS YOU and is refusing to stop even though you have a gun aimed at him.

Now, considering that you want to go home to your family that night (rather than to the hospital or the morgue), just what are YOU going to do in that situation? Get out of your LazyBoy-lounger-POV and actually have a HUGE kid charging at you & your gun and tell me what you are going to do beside shit your pants?

Won’t you do as you are TRAINED to do; and do what is necessary to make sure it is you who are in control of the situation so that you are protecting yourself as well as the community? Anyone who is charging at a gun likely isn’t in their right mind and isn’t going to be easily convinced by conventional wisdom to resume rational behavior.

Upon being afforded an opportunity to actually envision being in that situation, the person(s) I pose that to tend to adopt a different opinion than they had before. For some of them, I’ll do a little role playing (they agree to it). I go 30-40 feet from them and begin to walk towards them in a very menacing manner and tell them that I’m going to actually beat them on the head if they don’t do something to prevent it (they have a “gun” in their hand).

Any guesses about what they do?

Isn’t part of good behavior largely a factor of responsibility?
Isn’t part of good behavior dependent upon possessing the necessary knowledge to know good from bad and the reasons for making the correct choice?

Okay, I was hoping someone would have by now mentioned the concept of: It Takes a Village:….
“It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us is a book published in 1996 by First Lady of the United States Hillary Rodham Clinton. In it, Clinton presents her vision for the children of America. She focuses on the impact individuals and groups outside the family have, for better or worse, on a child’s well-being, and advocates a society which meets all of a child’s needs.”

I’m very surprised our “conservative” faction on the forum didn’t sanctimoniously blast out how this bit of common sense is at the heart of today’s problems. The hatful asses at the time certainly did. Much like how anything today that is associated w/ Pres. Obama is considered to have been directly spawned in Hell, that a First Lady should promote a concept of how things actually happen in life brought howls from “conservatives”.

“The theme of the book, at least as perceived from its title, aroused immediate opposition within the United States. The most famous instance of this occurred during the 1996 presidential election: during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, nominee Bob Dole said: “… with all due respect, I am here to tell you, it does not take a village to raise a child. It takes a family to raise a child.”4"

Does not dear ol’ Bob (a former Senator from my home state of Kansas) know that the family is actually a part of a village? Does he not know that said family doesn’t live in a vacuum; but, rather is a participant of the village?

I’m going to go with: NO, he doesn’t.
That is the fallout from being so hateful about “liberalism” that commonsense just doesn’t penetrate in such areas.

What a such conservatives see is: it takes fanaticism to corrupt and drive a society in the direction it deems good for the select few.

Then there is Rick Santorum’s book, It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good in which he twists Hillary’s concept of the village to mean “papa & momma big government”.

While it is easily observable, I’m still at a loss as to why those NOT-moderate conservatives have such a needful penchant for distortion. This isn’t to say that those quaint folks at the other end of the spectrum don’t have a fine function for “flair”. However, they aren’t typically elected to public office where they can really fuck things up.

Why, yes….it really is all just that simple.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why are schools so warped now?

Sorry here;
but, your “true story” sounds a bit “fabricated”.

First: you are passing on a story from a 9 y.o. as if it were fact.

Second: why not omit the “under God” part? Hell, if they want to not daily say the pledge, isn’t that their right as a non-public school? Do YOU have some problem w/ separation of church & state?

Third: I’m having a very difficult time believing the Imchel-&-the-flag story. YOUR “true story” may well be that YOU had this discussion w/ your girlfriend’s 9 y.o. niece; but, that doesn’t mean the story she told is true…..now does it? Did you go to that school and verify any of what you are trying to pass off as being true?

THAT might be a bit of WTF is going on here?”
Too many ppl too willing to distort the truth too much, all so that their too, too precious concept of what is right & wrong w/ America can be forced down the throats of everyone else.

Fourth: when YOU went to school was THEN.
This is NOW.
Guess what?
Things change…..deal with it.

Fifth: “they FORCE the kids to do this sheeple drill…..”
Basically, 9 y.o. kids ARE sheeple.
What part of having a lockdown drill do YOU have a problem with?
Yes, doing it daily seems totally overkill.
A schedule similar to fired drills would be more appropriate.
Too many drills likely instill undue inappropriate apprehension.

And, did you really need to start a separate thread about what should/should not be taught in school? Wouldn’t your ego allow ya to make the above post in the current thread?

Aren’t you just the latest manifestation (festation) of brashhamster, sniper, on&on&on?
Why the obsessive need to be so many different ppl?

One thing that everyone should consider:
most of us have jobs that we consider to be what allows us to “bring home the bacon”.

Police have a task where Job 1 is to return home, alive & well, at the end of the shift.
THAT is the nature of their job.
Having an understanding of this might help ppl view situations like this a bit differently.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Let's discuss Bill Cosby the serial rapist

Noobie Isheal, I agree completely w/ your post.
I merely want to expand on it a bit.

Originally posted by Ishmeal:

I think this is a situation where the statutes of limitations on time to file a case will result in no legal action being taken; which is unfortunate given the severity of the accusations involved.

Yes & no.
An interesting comment in there about how conservative vs. liberal viewpoints differ.
Also, there is a bit on how widely laws differ throughout the U.S.

Cosby might still be vulnerable for civil actions from incidents long ago. There might be some of his “victims” that might just now be realizing that they actually were victimized by him. If I’m interpreting the below correctly, this might be the case.

“The general rule is the limitation period begins when the plaintiff’s cause of action accrues or is made to be aware of the injury that might have happened a long time ago (e.g., asbestos injury).”
.

I think this is a prime example of men with money and power getting away with crimes that “lesser” men would suffer far more consequences for. The more important underlying question is this: should those with power and wealth be subjected to MORE stringent standards of conduct given their capacity to thwart consequences that would deter the average person?

While I understand and agree w/ ya;
the only thing that can happen is that the prosecutor’s office will need to have lawyers equal to those a rich defendant can obtain.

However, as we are seeing, the “court of public opinion” needs no such limitations when it comes to high-profile individuals and/or incidents.

DARREN WILSON SHOULD BE IN PRISON! WILSON’S STORY DOESN’T ADD UP!

Why say you that?
What data do ya bases your opinion?

Have you read the Grand Jury findings?
Have you even read a breakdown of those findings?

If YOU want to talk about stories that don’t add up, ya should know that most of the stories the Grand Jury heard “added up” to such a clusterfuck that there was no way a court trial would be able to conclude much of anything….other than the penchant for ppl to see things differently….based on a host of reasons.

This link presents something, if true, seriously damning to part of the Grand Jury’s findings and how the prosecutor initially mislead the jurors; but, clumsily corrected herself (I wonder why she felt she needed to do so….who informed her of her mistake?)

It does bring up some information about how SCOTUS ruled, in 1985, that police couldn’t shoot fleeing SUSPECTS. The video also indicates that the prosecutor was either extremely biased or just plain stupid. It also shows the ignorance of one of the jurors about who has superior authority: the Supreme Court of the U.S. or the Supreme Court of Missouri.

The summation of the video is that Darren Wilson really didn’t need to defend himself, the prosecuting attorney did that herself.

This link brings up something that I’ve known all along: it is going to be very difficult to get the truth when getting it from those who know it are extremely reluctant to share it for a host of reasons.

Please remember this: the Grand Jury DID NOT say Wilson is innocent.
It merely said there just wasn’t a reasonable presentation of evidence to have a trial.
That is what its job is.
If you want to know more about that job;
shorter version

Most importantly:
“Even though a grand jury may not choose to indict, a prosecutor may still bring the defendant to trial if she thinks she has a strong enough case. However, the grand jury proceedings are often a valuable test run for prosecutors in making the decision to bring the case.”

Look at a Grand Jury as a “rehearsal trial” for the prosecuting attorney’s office. There is no judge, the only lawyers there and presenting are from the prosecutor’s office.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Should good behaviour be taught at school?

Does anyone care to comment on the ways & whys good behavior/self-discipline should be taught at home; but, there seems to be a growing trend that it isn’t happening?

This is the antithesis of the OP.
I hoped it would be brought up and heavily discussed by now.
Sure, it might be seen as being OT;
but, I see it as a form of exonerating the school’s “responsibility” to teach good behavior.

Schools absolutely must maintain/enforce its existence;
but, it certainly shouldn’t be the one to “teach” it.
Well, I suppose I might see a part of offering education (teaching) as being a presenting materials that show information ABOUT what good behavior is and what happens when it doesn’t exist (wars for instance).
