    It does not matter if the global warming is caused by humans or not. We are BROKE. We don’t have the resources to build an air conditioner that could cool the planet to its perfect temperature. We spent the money on social justice and Utopia instead. My air conditioner makes the air inside of my house cooler and at the same time makes the outside air hotter. So if we build this big air conditioner, where are we going to exhaust all of the heat that it produces?

    I don’t think you could convict just one cop when a dozen others also fired at the target. 137 shots is 137 chances for collateral damage. I am pleased that there were no stray shots for unintended locations. This is overkill. The car could not have been moving when the officer jumped up on the hood, so were they trying to stop the car by weighting it down with lead? If there is any thing brave about jumping on the hood and unloading his gun, it was taking the chance of taking friendly fire.

    I don’t think 62% of Catholics voted for this because the most likely thing is that the bulk of people voting for it were younger people. They are just as vulnerable to the concept of something being OK as long as there is no impact on them personally as young people in the US. Good public policy is good for them, maybe not the family, maybe not the extended family, maybe not the village or maybe not the national. This is how young people get saddled with debt. Other people seem to be paying most of it and the government says not to worry. Homosexuality is seen as a victimless activity. If you have no close experience with that, it passes as the truth.

    I think if I were gay, I still would not get married in a civil ceremony for the same reason I would not want to have my guns registered with the local government. Making it legal could make a bigger target of the practitioners of their new freedom, especially if the march of Islam continues to have such grand acceptance in Europe to the point that Sharia courts are accepted. A civil declaration for one person might be the same as being a registered pervert to another. Change is good until it changes back again.

    How would they do that? I assume that the ballots were not co-signed by the clergy. I figured if the church were really against it, they would have made that threat before the vote. Why didn’t the Pope mention it? I would like to know how many Hail Marys one would have to do to clean a “yes” vote off their record? Is this going to make it harder to get out of Purgatory?

    How much of this was on camera? What could be the other side of the story? Were they trying to hide behind Al Sharpton’s entourage? Maybe the judge thought that the police officer jumped up on the hood to try and save the passengers?

    The British got rid of slavery in England decades before the Americans and without a civil war. I would fault them for getting involved on the side of the South by selling them arms to protect their cotton interest during our Civil War, but a lot of Tories went to Canada and to other colonies of the British after our Revolutionary War. The legendary “evil” influences of the Christian Church on government changed attitudes about slavery that we have forgotten to appreciate.

    I don’t expect any enlightenment to come upon them until they start looking for people to blame. So far, this just seems to be a problem caused by persons unknown or policies they never bothered to understand because all of the smart people never had a problem with it. I also don’t expect them to accurately find the culprits either since they are their own worst enemy. Can you imagine the folks on Watters World who don’t know jack abut history trying to figure out how they got stuck for all of the US debt that the old people racked up? The most likely outcome is another French Revolution or a scheme to rack up even more debt to pass down to their kids.

    Muslims have no respect for Kafirs. Killing an unbeliever holds no serious fear of divine retribution unless that person is another Muslim that believes exactly as the murderer does.

    The “original sin” of slavery was in a time when it was legal. People today, as then, prior to Abe Lincoln, figured if something was legal, it was moral. This is not Biblical but, it is generally true about abortion and gay marriage and fornication today. We owe no debt in the “sin of slavery.” We own no slaves legally and even if we could, good slaves would be few and far in between. If winking at sin generates a future demand for social justice, what does the whole hog approval of sin do to the social justice ledger in the future?
    This looks like the shootout with Bonnie and Clyde. If the occupants had managed to live, they probably would have been charged with improper maintenance of a vehicle and forced to get an emissions test. This is over kill. There needs to be a shake-up in the police department so that there is not such a hair trigger connected to an avalanche of deadly force. If someone can jump on the hood, then the car is no longer moving. This is over the line.

    No one cares anymore. Besides, women have to work to support the governments appetite for correcting the problems and depravity of man. Every time they “fix” something, they at least have the pleasure of knowing that they have” fixed” something that has always been wrong with God’s creation. Minorities knowing their place, especially in the south was a preoccupation because the ratio of Blacks to Whites was sometimes as high as five to one. Anyone with a brain could imagine what would happen if they suddenly took a John Brown attitude about Whites.

    Self gratification theory has an upper limit found in the amount of power that the individual has. This is why Liberals don’t want random people having guns or any other way to protect themselves. With enough power, you can make your own laws as does the last two leaders of North Korea. I think the professor is failing to see that the rise of self gratification is along a parallel trajectory with Capitalism. At the micro level, you give someone a few bucks for a beer and they give you the beer. You would rather have the beer and the seller would rather have the money. Instead of a slave and master situation you also bargain for your labor. The only force required is a government in the background enforcing contract law, property rights and one that does not meddle in these free-will transactions. I don’t trust morality that changes or is based on political correctness. The government needs to power to make exceptions sometimes but no power is free from potential abuse. I think we are every bit as evil as ever, we only have a different environment to express our darker natures. It is great sport to criticize those who have been dead for centuries for their lack of morality but I think the closer we see evil in a time sense, the more likely we are involved in it. Our current government is the greatest thief since Robin Hood. We are stealing from our children and grandchildren right now. At least Genghis Kahn was honest about his exploits and brazen expropriations.

    Freddie Gray is dead and this guy is not, so it is not exactly the same. I don’t think that Freddie Gray should be dead unless his own judgement and actions had a substantial impact on the outcome. We will probably never know what happened and even if a video of it happening magically appeared, half would not believe it. They might have to resort to rolling perps in bubble wrap and shipping them in steel tubes. I remember reading about an EMS unit that was called to an arrest and the perp resisted so much that they ended up making a stretcher sandwich with the perp between two stretchers that were taped together. The guy died of the inability to breath. He might have had asthma, I don’t remember. The point here is that EMS or doctors are not anymore able to tell if someone is faking an injury(even if the injury bleeds) than the police if the faker is experienced and is even willing to injure himself in the process. Anyway, the probability of a bad outcome seems to be enhanced by resisting arrest. Faking an injury is at least conspiracy to commit fraud and the beginning of the perp getting a check from the government.

    Allah and God are not the same because they created the universe in completely different ways. According to Qur’an 65:12, Allah created seven heavens and seven Earths. When the Earth began to move Allah threw stabilizers upon it (or maybe all seven of them)Qur’an 16:15. According to Mohammad, Allah created a thousand nations. Six hundred live in the sea and the rest live on land. According to Mohammad, the Earth is spread out and tossed on stabilizers to keep the Earth from moving. Qur’an 15:19. The moon, according to the Qur’an is “a light.” Qur’an 10:5. Muslim scholars interpret Qur’an 55:5 to mean that the sun and the moon circle the earth. Allah and the God of the Jews and Christians are two different architects of two different worlds.

    I can remember having a lot of scout meetings where sexual orientation was far far away from the concern of the day. Those were the good old days. If someone was gay, they stayed in the closet and pretended to be normal. If they added to the group anything of value, it was not anything to do with perversion. I think it is only a matter of time before we have to have affirmative action for perverts under the social justice theory or getting even with society.

    The test does not give any idea of the shock that is transmitted to the brain even if the bullet is stopped in the hat. The energy in a 230 grain bullet traveling 850 feet per second is given by the equation: KE = 1/2 *M*(Velocity)* Velocity. In the MKS system 230 grains is about 14.9 grams and 850 feet per second is 259 meters per second. That works out to 999.5 Kg-meter squared/sec squared. To get an idea of the shock of being hit by a common object like a 5 oz base ball at the same energy level, substitute the mass of the ball, about .142 kg, into the equation and solve for velocity. I got 7038.8 but the velocity is 83.9 meters per second or 275.25 feet per second. 275 feet per second is slightly under modern crossbow speeds. This is like getting hit with a baseball traveling slightly under 188 MPH. To really find out what fraction of the shock is going directly into the brain, pressure sensors should have been embedded in the gel.
