One difference however is that Cosby isn’t the “right kind” of black person, whereas Simpson was. If Cosby had embraced and defended today’s black culture instead of criticizing it, he’d have nothing to fear. In fact, he probably wouldn’t even be facing a trial.

It was people like these who built America. Saying people like these will doom America would be akin to saying people like Steve Jobs would doom Apple.

I’m catching a certain slant to this story…
“Of the “dead voters,” 86 were registered Republicans, and 146 were registered Democrats.”
What an odd thing to say. Who cares what the registration of the dead voters was, what we care about is who the dead voters voted for while dead. A statistic like this kind of implies to a casual reader that voter fraud is being committed by both Republicans and Democrats. But given that it’s southern California, and given the history of Democratic cheating in general, I’d bet probably nearly 100% of those dead voters voted Democrat. The phrasing there makes it sound like “oh well it’s both sides doing it.”
“He was a diehard Democrat, and I was thinking that if somebody else was voting under his name, he’s probably rolling in his grave if they’re voting Republican,” Givans said.
Here the one person cited in the story is someone concerned that her dead Democrat father may have had votes cast for a Republican. Yeah, because that happens. I’m quite certain she has nothing to worry about as I’m quite certain those votes cast on her dead father’s behalf were still cast for Democrats. But again, the story seems to make it sound as though it’s those dastardly Republicans out there committing voter fraud.
Considering the minute number of trans people, and the lackluster enforcement of immigration law, I’m thinking those are going to be 36 empty beds.

The groundwork has already been prepared for the pedophilia movement. First, the gay marriage issue and subsequent SC ruling established the idea that “love is love”, i.e. any two people should be free to love without regards to who they are. Now the trans issue is establishing the idea that it’s how you “identify” that matters, not who or what you really are. These things are/have been encoded into law.
So now all that needs to happen is for the 45 year old with the 13 year old lover to say that the 13 year old “identifies” as an adult and, after all, “love is love.”
Then somewhere down the line bestiality will be normalized, and the liberal bacchanalian society will be complete.
‘So now all that needs to happen is for the 45 year old with the 13 year old lover to say that the 13 year old “identifies” as an adult and, after all, “love is love.” ‘
Not sure if you’ve heard of the idea of ‘consent’. Minors and animals are not able to give consent….. not sure why this is s a hard concept to comprehend?

Rutgers just awarded the Chancellor’s Leadership Award and Clement A. Price Human Dignity Award to one of the nutjob protesters who smeared fake blood on her face and chanted annoying BS during Milo’s visit there. I’m guessing Trigglypuff will also get some esteemed award within days too.
“Liberal arrogance, seems to me, to be just a pejorative for living in the real world, and refusing to apologize for it.”
AHH HAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! Liberals…living in the real world…this would be a world in which a clump of lifeless cells instantly transforms into a human baby at the moment of birth. A world in which one can choose to be male or female apparently at a whim. A world in which driving a car impacts the climate more than does the sun. A world in which a nation can spend more than it earns and magically never go broke. A world in which fish and lizards and rodents have rights but human babies do not. A world in which Hillary Clinton is honest. A world in which entering the bathroom of your choice is a matter of basic human dignity. A world in which North Carolina is evil and needs to be boycotted, but Iran is our friend and needs to have nuclear capabilities. I would run out of characters long before I could finish this list.
How will these young liberals people survive in the real world if they can't live outside their safe space.

You keep acting like you’re the smart one in the room, yet you can’t answer a simple question. So you’re saying that gender is essentially wired into people’s brains, despite the fact that the very same high and mighty liberal academics have argued exactly the opposite for decades. So how are we, the ignorant unwashed masses, supposed to know what to believe? Do we believe what liberal academics told us for decades, or do we believe what they’re telling us right now?
 May 9, 2016 at 8:17pm
There you go again. What is this “identity” you keep talking about? If one’s physical body is not their “identity”, then what’s left besides their thoughts and feelings?
 May 9, 2016 at 8:07pm
I asked you a question and a smarmy ad hominem is not an answer. What exactly is this “identity” you speak of? What is it if it’s not one’s physical body or one’s thoughts and feelings? If a man’s body, his DNA, if all that is male but he “identifies” as female, then what is it that identifies him as female if not his thoughts and feelings?
 May 9, 2016 at 7:53pm
You’re the one who’s confused. If someone is physically male, what is there left to be female aside from their thoughts and feelings? Conjuring up some ambiguous term like “identity” is useless. If the body is male, than what exactly is female outside of what’s in their mind?
 May 9, 2016 at 7:49pm
Of course it is. You’re just regurgitating a bunch of leftist psychobabble nonsense that liberal feminists cooked up so as to argue that “gender” was merely the result of upbringing and circumstances, nurture and not nature, so that they could argue that the only reason girls want to play with dolls and cook and have babies is because they were forced to by the patriarchy and it’s rules.
Now of course they’re making the exact opposite argument, saying that both gender and sex are innate, yet still separate. But of course, the same liberals who insisted they were right when they said gender was environmental are now insisting they’re right when they say gender is innate. Because liberals can’t ever be wrong.

For starters, I don’t “identify” as anything. I am what I am. But if I for some reason was made to pee in the women’s room, sure it might be a little awkward or uncomfortable. But are you seriously suggesting that “awkward or uncomfortable” are matters of “basic human dignity”? Moreover, said discomfort would ultimately stem from the fact that they have boobs and a vagina and I’ve got a penis. If I had boobs and a penis, I’d fit right in, and thus would feel no discomfort.
I can’t believe there’s even a need to explain this.
 May 9, 2016 at 7:29pm
They won’t accept that. It’s already been tried. Giving them their own bathroom is humiliating or traumatizing or some other such nonsense. Just like the gay movement wasn’t satisfied with “civil unions”, they wanted marriage. Trans people don’t want a unisex bathroom or trans bathroom, they want to pee with whoever they “feel” like and nothing else will do. They apparently feel the need to justify their own delusion or something. Yay, I’m a real girl now, because I’m in the girl’s bathroom!
 May 9, 2016 at 7:25pm
That’s “cruel”? That a boy has to pee around other boys? If that is what you consider “cruel”, then how is it NOT cruel to force a bunch of girls to have a boy peeing with them?
 May 9, 2016 at 7:23pm
Human dignity is fine, but has nothing whatsoever to do with a trans man wanting to pee in the women’s bathroom. Good fricking grief, the fact that this needs to even be explained is ridiculous beyond words. OMG a man who “feels” like a woman has to pee around men who “feel” like men, and that’s a matter of human dignity? It’s a matter of ludicrous absurdity is what it is.
 May 9, 2016 at 7:18pm
“again, only dumb people rely upon “common sense”…”
Well you are the expert in that field.
 May 9, 2016 at 7:14pm
“You don’t seem to have a very clear definition of what “identity” is…”
This from the guy who thinks men should be able to go in the women’s room because they “feel” like women.
 May 9, 2016 at 7:13pm
By your own argument there’s no need for trans “women” to go into women’s bathrooms, and vice-versa.
And the idea that a man who feels like a woman having to use the men’s room is a matter of “basic human dignity” is perhaps the stupidest, most ridiculous thing I’ve read yet this year.
And there is no need for them not to enter a women's bathroom (funny how freedom and not ogling someone else's genitals works, huh?)...
...and please explain why you feel human dignity is "stupid"...
Human dignity is fine, but has nothing whatsoever to do with a trans man wanting to pee in the women's bathroom. Good fricking grief, the fact that this needs to even be explained is ridiculous beyond words. OMG a man who "feels" like a woman has to pee around men who "feel" like men, and that's a matter of human dignity? It's a matter of ludicrous absurdity is what it is.
So, you would feel perfectly dignified defecating in a restroom of the opposite of the one you identify with?
And, like others here, you seem to not understand the concept of identity...
...it is not about "feeling" anything...,it is about who a person is...
For starters, I don't "identify" as anything. I am what I am. But if I for some reason was made to pee in the women's room, sure it might be a little awkward or uncomfortable. But are you seriously suggesting that "awkward or uncomfortable" are matters of "basic human dignity"?

I can't believe there's even a need to explain this.
You are who you are because you identify as such...
...it really is not that hard of a concept to understand....
You're the one who's confused. If someone is physically male, what is there left to be female aside from their thoughts and feelings? Conjuring up some ambiguous term like "identity" is useless. If the body is male, than what exactly is female outside of what's in their mind?
You are the one who is confused...however, your confusion is based upon ignorance about the ideas of gender and identity because of a lack of exposure to others, and I hope not based upon the maliciousness of intolerance...
I asked you a question and a smarmy ad hominem is not an answer. What exactly is this “identity” you speak of? What is it if it’s not one’s physical body or one's thoughts and feelings? If a man’s body, his DNA, if all that is male but he “identifies” as female, then what is it that identifies him as female if not his thoughts and feelings?
What ad hominem? You are arguing from ignorance...
...your question was about the mind which is a philosophical construct and has nothing to do with this discussion. However, if you are asking about the neuroscience of gender and the biological processes involved, I might suggest studying up on that topic a bit more...a message board on a website is not the place for me to elaborate on such things...
You keep acting like you're the smart one in the room, yet you can't answer a simple question.

I don't have to act like the smart one in the room...if you have that impression of me, then that ought to tell you something...
...you are misunderstanding the interaction between environmental factors and biological factors. Environment influences the biology of an individual...on a genetic level and on a neurological level. It is much the same with many human behaviors...we are hard wired for some behaviors, yet the environment influences the expression of those traits.
You have a rather large chip on your shoulder concerning your ignorance of the construction of human behaviors...the easy remedy would be to seek out knowledge instead of wallowing in confused ignorance,..
