I've even known autistic ACABers to be against the idea of autistic policemen as they're too busy screaming "ACAB" to actually see how better inclusivity and training can help.


As for Antifa (assuming you meant the group rather than anti-fascism) is the hypocrisy lost on them when they say "not my prime minister" after a democratic election?

Novus America wrote:
I would complain, if standing for the judge was causing problems. Sometimes if you want to make a point, you have to make that point. Sometimes you have to use firm, commanding, clear language.

I do complain that many judges write poorly written opinions in an excessively verbose manner that normal people never would use. The fact that you have to have a good working knowledge of Latin and Yiddish to read many court opinions is problematic. It is convention for judges to often write like that. It is not a good one though. Many judges are absolutely awful writers. You have to slog through pages of that excessively verbose silliness to get to the point.


The awsome quote:
Gravlen wrote:The defendant is such a mentsh it's utter mishegas to think he would be a paskudneh. This judge might be a schmuck, but the chutzpah of the prosecution cannot be overstated. So, since they have not proven that the defendant had the necessary mens rea, I can only say: Mazel Tov!

Merykor wrote:The issue #1290, Why Didn't the @@ANIMAL@@ Cross the Road, the answer that gives "coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms" as headliner provides bias and scientifically innacurate results for the stats.

The answer itself is about greatly reducing human expanse through reducing the suburbia, and here are the wrong changes and why I see them as wrong:

Authoritarianism +7.0%, or ~+20 milistalins. It's a great change when considering that the suburbia itself was created and is maintained by heavy government interference, since humans have always gathered in cities. Outlawing suburbia, which I don't believe I did, shouldn't raise by such the milistalins, maybe from -15 to +10 would be a good amount and actions not as extreme should make even less of a difference.[3][4]

Social Conservatism +6.5%, or ~+1.5 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index. This strikes me as strange, since the urbanization of life is, on the US, a big Democrat, that is, progressive, point, whereas republicans, that is, conservatives, support more suburbanization. All over the world progressists shun suburbanization while conservatives want it, to varying degrees. It's something that should be on the range of -15 to -0, but never a positive value.[3][4][13]

Obesity +0,82%, or ~+0,6 on the Obesity Rate. People on cities are, anywhere in the globe, healthier and thinner than in suburbia, since they have more incentive to do basic exercise, like walking to places. It should, again, never be positive, ranging from -7 to -0.[2][4][5][6][7][8]

Taxation +0,49% or ~+0.7 Effective Tax Rate. Suburbs require very, very high public maintainance since less people use more infraestructure. It's not hard to see this. A residential apartment building will need less road, plumbing and electric wires, and that's just from the top of my head. Not only that, but suburban maintanance is frequently the highest per zoning, so reducing suburbia should greatly reduce taxes, from -15 to -1 and, again, never be positive.[1][3][4][10][11]

Economy -0.7% or ~-0.7 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index. Cities are the great money maker of countries. The richest cities on the US are New York and Los Angeles, both lacking in suburbs, and that's no coincidence. Around the globe too: Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris, São Paulo, none have great suburbia, if they have one at all. This should be from +7 to +0 and never negative.[1][3][4][6][10][11]

Average Income -0.15%, or ~-180 Currency. The suburbia makes people poor. Atlanta had an increase in poverty by 126% on the 'burbs, Austin 129%, Las Vegas 139%, Cleveland 62%, Chicago 84%, and the list goes on and on. By these statistics alone, not even considering the previous points on taxation and economy, it's clear that average income should increase, by +0% to +5%.[1][2][3][4][11]

Economic Output -0.16% or ~-385,435,200,000 Currency. With the three previous points, I don't think this one needs to be explained, since it's basically a consequence of the others.[1][3][4][10][11]

Scientific Advancement -0.21% or ~-1.1 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.The largest scientific centers of the world are on the same big cities that make the economy grow, and the arguments for its growth are largely the same. That's not a coincidence. It should be from +0 to +15.[4]

Industry: Information Technology -0.34% or ~-141 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index. This has to do with Economy and Scientific Advancement, so it should be clear why it should grow, not diminish.[4][11]

Intelligence -0.35% or ~-0.33 Quips Per Hour. People on cities share have wider nets of contact, are under less societal stress caused by loneliness, have a better spacial sense and memory for using less cars, are more fisically active, education centers are closer; all that suggests the intelligence will be higher, not lower, it should be from +0 to +0.5.

Niceness -1% or ~-0.4 Average Smiles Per Day. People on cities are nicer to each other, since they have to practice niceness more often due to the amount of people they meet daily, and being sure the people they meet on the school will be met again, probably with their parents, reduces bullying, since they are neighbors, with the job also not being so different, because they will meet again on the caffe/bar with friends in common.[12][13]

Employment -1.2% or ~-0.6 on the Workforce Participation Rate. With people living near the workplace and having a wider contact network finding a job or starting your own enterprise is easier on cities so, again, this shouldn't be negative. It should go from +0 to +3.[4][11][12]

Civil Rights -1.13% or ~-0.7. Protests, insurgencies, speechs, parades, even revolutions all happen on cities. If you want to protest civil rights, you'll go downtown. Living closer to where you'd ask for more civil rights, nay, any kind of right should increase the civil rights, never diminish them. It should be from +0 to +1.[4]

Industry: Book Publishing -1,3% or ~-234 on the Bella Potter Productivity E-Index. People in cities have more contact with more ideas, besides having more friends to help them get motivated to write, not forgetting the point of the Economy, that it should also rise, as well as Intelligence and Average Income, all contributing to more books being published, not less. It's the New York Times List of Best Sellers for a reason, it's the most urban city on the US, with the most urban city in the world, Tokyo, being famous for its writing scene, from both independent writers and big companies. It should go from +30 to +350, again, never less.[4][11]

Average Disposable Income -1,7% or ~-525 Currency. Besides previous points, living in a city is cheaper. You'll walk to most places, not spending on gasoline/ethanol. Because there will be more competing businesses, you can more easily chose the cheapest one, still inside your walking zone. ADI should increase on a range from +100 to +750.[2][3][4][9][10][11]

Health -2% or ~-0.3 Bananas Ingested Per Day. Most cities aren't the smog filled wastelands they once were. They have better park planning and less polluting industries, with the ones they have being more heavily regulated, besides the fact that there will be less cars coming from the suburbia, reducing pollution even more, and with people walking more and having a wider wet of contacts, making them fisically and mentally healthier. It should go from +0 to +1.[2][4][5][6][7][8][9]

Sector: Manufacturing -2,4% or ~-131 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index. Better Economy, people living closer, previous points say why this should increase not diminish. If it is indeed to diminish though, it is another reason for Health to go up instead of down.[11]

Cheerfulness -2,9% or ~-1 of Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full. For reasons already said, people on cities are happier than people on suburbs. Healthier, more friends, more opportunities, more money, etc.. It should go from +0 to +2.[4][12][13]

Economic Freedom -4,9% or ~-2,2 on the Rand Index. City States, such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Monaco are all listed pretty high and have none or close to no suburbs. For countries this is maintained. Japan, Switzerland, Taiwan none have big suburbs, and have very high economic freedoms. Again, this is not a coincidence. Economic freedom should never go down because of urbanization, but up. A good range would be +0.3 to +5.[1][2][3][4][12]

And this is not even the extended details.

I have varying degrees of fluency in several languages, and know people able to speak them with greater fluency, or speak alternative languages with a remarkable fluency. I live in one of the most diverse countries in the world, and with that comes linguistic diversity (isn’t it funny how German lost to English as our main language by only one vote, and English isn’t even out official language).

From Persian speakers in LA to Somali speakers in Minneapolis to Spanish speakers in Florida to Mandarin speakers in New York, there is a remarkable amount of people fluent in both English and one or more other languages.

We pride ourselves as a nation that while often finding it difficult to get along with each other, can at certain points come together around one cause to do a great endeavor, as we have done many times in history.

The Republic of Fore wrote:Funny how Biden has gone from claiming only dictators use executive orders, to issuing more than the last four presidents combined in just seven months. Then again, he'd probably sign a shopping list if it was put in front of him.

You're lying.

https://www.federalregister.gov/preside ... ive-orders

Joe Biden: 46
Donald Trump: 219
Barack Obama: 276
George Bush: 291
Bill Clinton: 305

46 < 1091

But maybe you're going to say that what you meant is that Biden signed more executive orders than all four of his predecessors had at this point in their presidencies combined. By the 29th of May in the first year of their presidencies, Biden's predecessors had signed:

Trump: 36
Obama: 20
Bush: 17
Clinton: 28

46 < 101

But maybe you're going to say that even though you said "combined", you didn't mean it. Maybe you think that you can just walk back that part of your lies. You're still lying. Biden never said that only dictators use executive orders. What he said is that there are things that you can't do by executive order unless you are a dictator. He was answering a question about whether there'd be any delay in enacting his tax plan.
No, well, I've gotta get the votes. I gotta get the votes. That's why — you know, the one thing that I — I have this strange notion. We are a democracy. Some of my Republican friends and some of my Democratic friends even occasionally say, 'Well, if you can't get the votes, by executive order you're going to do something.' Things you can't do by executive order unless you're a dictator. We're a democracy. We need consensus.

In fact, during his campaign he promised to sign executive orders reversing Trump policies and things like that. Biden signing a raft of orders on his first day in office wasn't hypocrisy, quite the opposite, he was doing exactly what he said he would do.

And I say that you're lying, because I know that you know that what you're saying isn't true. We've gone through this before, you'll recall. During the Democratic primaries you claimed in one post that Bernie Sanders had no plan for funding his proposed Medicare For All policy, and in another post just a few minutes later you were making specific criticisms of his plan. This is just what you do. You tell lies to criticise Democrats because the lie is a better sounding criticism than a more complex, detailed truth. Maybe there are worthwhile criticisms to make about Biden's use of executive orders. But we'll never hear them from you when there are nice simple lies you can tell.

Shocker.


Israel's exercising its right to defend itself the same way I did when I was high, saw a shadow man standing out in the field and shot him with my finger gun.

Only difference is thank God i didn't have a real gun on me.

The state will give away five custom hunting rifles and five custom shotguns through its lottery, with the drawings taking place on June 20 for Fathers Day.

There will be a series of lottery drawings taking place weekly from June 20 through August 4, for which any West Virginian who’s received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine will be eligible to register. The lottery will also give one resident $1 million—as other states have done—along with prizes like full-ride scholarships, custom trucks and lifetime hunting and fishing licenses.

In addition to its lottery, West Virginia is also giving away $100 in savings bonds or gift cards to everyone ages 16-35 in the state who is fully vaccinated.

Hey, if it works...
