    In the Flanders/Swann song, “The Reluctant Cannibal,” the chief says to his rebellious child “If the JuJu had meant for us NOT to eat people/He wouldn’t have made us of meat!”

    There is no such thing as a free market. There can certainly be no such thing as a free market as long as corporations exist.

    Amazing, the level of ignorance of facts about this case. Here are a few: Brown (or whoever the person is) is on videotape paying for the cigars. The edited video was an attempt by the Ferguson PD to slander him. Seems to have worked. The US DOJ strongly objected to their publishing the video. The store management did not report any crime. Six eyewitnesses saw the cop trying to pull him into the cruiser through the window. Brown was an assault victim and was reasonably defending himself. The cop didn’t have a mark on him in hospital photos of his “injuries” taken that afternoon.

    1. As someone who’s lived in Missouri over half my life, I can tell you that some people here think of it as southern and some people don’t. St. Louis, where I live now, has been called “the city of Northern charm and Southern efficiency.” It has both northern and southern flavors of racism. But what would I know about it?
    2. You seem to believe the cop’s account. That’s pretty credulous. He’s known to have lied, if nothing else, by his self-contradictory statements.

    Actually, audio from his radio indicates that Wilson knew about an alleged altercation — but there was no robbery; nobody working at the convenience store ever reported a robbery, or so they told the media. Strangely, the Ferguson PD said that Wilson didn’t know about any incident at the time. So either they lied then (about a week after the shooting) or later manufactured fake audio.

    Incredible. It seems that half the country are just blindly accepting the cop’s account, which, by the way, has so many internal contradictions that at least some of it has to be perjurous. It is a fact that all six known witnesses in the weeks between the shooting and the GJ agreed that that is not at all what happened, that the victim was assaulted by the cop — his head dragged through the patrol car window. Maybe one, even two witnesses might have recanted, but not all of them, no way. And witnesses on the cop’s side? Who are they and where did they come from? Nobody ever heard of them before the GJ announcement. Based on the trustworthy accounts, anything the victim did was justified as self-defense; he was fleeing for his life. Not shooting at someone whose hands were in the air from 150 feet away. One thing is certain: the cop is a gigantic coward.

    In Genesis, Adam & Eve have free will (otherwise it wouldn’t have been possible for them to disobey their orders) and they’re punished for using it. That’s the basis of the whole silly view of morality as understood by Abrahamic religions.

    If, in saying “we have the highest tax rates in the world,” you mean the US, you are mistaken, misinformed, or lying. The U.S. has among the lowest tax rates in the industrialized world.

    Douglas Adams wasn’t advocating that as a philosophy. He was making fun of a system where people vote for a lizard to keep the wrong lizard from getting in, instead of maybe voting for a person. It’s metaphor, see? Politicians have about as much in common with us as lizards do, right? Arthur doesn’t understand a democracy where the people are people and the elected leaders are lizards, even though that’s just like most Western democracies on Earth.
