    if you have to think about it, that’s a problem. A spokesperson is supposed to be good at speaking. They’re not supposed to say stupid or crazy-sounding things and leave it up to others to explain what they probably really meant.

    Under Terry the primary criteria justifying such a stop was still a “reasonable suspicion that a crime has, is, or will be committed” based primarily on the behavior of the suspect. Nothing in the Terry decision justifies stopping and searching people just for walking down the street in a bad neighborhood, as the New York cops got away with doing for far too many years.

    If it’s not racist to say that blacks are more violent than whites, because even though most blacks are not violent criminals, most violent criminals are black, then it’s also not unfair to say that Republicans are more racist than Democrats, because even though most Republicans are not racists, most racists are Republicans. You can’t have it both ways.

    Yeah, if we can save thousands of people and a few of them turn around and kill some of us, we’re still better off for having done it. Those few bad eggs aren’t going to kill a thousand people each, so we’ve gained more good people than we have lost.

    Yes, but he’ll never admit it because he can never admit that most of the bad stuff you think you know about Mrs. Clinton was just a smear that he helped perpetrate.

    Christianity isn’t an effective counter narrative. Rejection of all irrational belief in prophecy and divine authority of ancient texts is the only effective counter narrative.

    If you’re picking movies to revisit and not just four of his best, I’d nominate Munich. A lot of people didn’t bother with that one because the overly-austere trailers made it look like a dull movie, but it was really a well-paced spy movie with a lot of action and suspense. And I have to see Empire of the Sun again because I just found out that the star was a 13-year-old Christian Bale, which I had never realized after I started seeing him as an adult actor.

    If you’re just going to pick four, they should be movies he actually directed, not just any movie he had anything to do with.

    Even if you hate BLM you should be thankful when this moronic lawsuit is inevitably thrown out. It cites people who have never called for violence, and claims that they should be punished just for engaging in speech that might make others angry. Do you really want to set a precedent like that? Have you so little imagination that you really can’t see that could affect the rights of people saying things you agree with?

    I looked at several news stories on other sites and it doesn’t seem like there is any definitive conclusion yet on whether the bomb was actually in the dumpster or just near the dumpster.

    If the first sentence refers to the need of the patients, and the second sentence refers to the needs of the professionals, that means that the needs of the patients come first and are above the needs of the professionals. You don’t even need a brain capable of logic to figure that out, you just have to be able to see the words on the page. Which is first? The patients. Which is above? The patients.

    “The actions of Ms. Carey are reflective of the kind of abhorrent behavior people with this issue can experience,”

    Aberrant. People with mental illness exhibit aberrant, meaning uncharacteristic and abnormal, not abhorrent, meaning evil and contemptible, behavior.

    Amendments proposed at a Convention of States have to be ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the states just like Amendments proposed by Congress. Good luck with that one.

    Well, Popp40, it’s sounds like we’re talking about high school age kids, here. I don’t think that my daughters would have freaked out like that over hearing a little rough talk from one of the other girls, so there would have been no reason I would ever have had to hear about it or act as if I gave a crap.

    Innocent people, Father of two, this stupid law punishes ONLY innocent people.

    Yes, if by so doing they are punishing real people and making their real problems worse in the name of preempting the nonexistent crimes of imaginary people, then their stupidity is just as evil as deliberate evil, and must be battled just as vigorously.
