If there is no such thing as “race” who exactly are the beneficiaries of Affirmative Action? When one competes the college application that box must be checked off. This is an example of when it helps liberals there is such a thing as race.
If there is no such thing as “race” who exactly is the Justice Department protecting when they don’t allow cities and states to change district boundary lines before elections. It might harm some (group?) Another example of if it helps liberals than there is such a thing as race.
If there is no such thing as race who are the beneficiaries of laws designed to stop DWB. Driving while black in which state police stop some groups more than others. Another example of if it helps liberals there is such a thing as race.
AAMOF, the only time there is no such thing as race is when it comes to IQ tests, then the concept of race doesn’t exist.
Naturally liberals don’t believe in g. Because if there was such a thing everything we call discriminatory would fall neatly into place. It would solve the hundreds of impossible to answer questions about difference in success rates. We could forget about AA and instead concentrate on education.
We say we believe in evolution and therefore different homo sapiens evolved differently. Pygmies, giants, black skin, white skin, redskin etc etc. the only place there was no evolution is in general intelligence.
The current teary request from the anti-death penalty contingent is life imprisonment with no parole. Sounds logical but the source of all of our liberal politics, Western Europe, has the next step and I assure you it will come if we abolish the death penalty. Having life imprisonment with no parole is cruel and unusual and we must give these poor miscreants a chance to get out of prison and lead a normal life. So after a number of years in prison for murder let them back into society. It is actually being discussed.
Olfart name one single instance in this country where an innocent man has been executed. Name one.
Your logic is usually better than that. We put the liberals in charge and they passed laws basically saying you must spend >$1M to execute a murderer. (appeals, retrials, appeals, pleas, appeals). Then you say see how expensive it is. My way, trial, conviction execution 6-12 months. Much much cheaper than lifetime in prison.
^ I don’t have any objection to posting here but all too often each of us probably writes a long post that the other person never gets to see. As for example evidently MM has not seen 2 posts above.
And the poor public gets stuck with lower prices, large selection and convenient locations. A disaster. If you can’t compete then you go out of business. Costco, Whole Foods, Target etc seem to be doing well.
I live in NYC and there are no Wal-Marts here. A gallon of milk at the store across the street is $4.29. I rented a car Thursday and did my monthly shopping. Milk was $1.99 There are many many many poor people in NYC, wouldn’t it be nice if they were able to buy milk at that price? I can afford a rent a car, they can’t.
So Parker you are saying the poor of NYC must pay double so the inefficient large corporations can make a huge profit. Some nice guy you are.
MM I have a longish post strictly for you. How? when?
Borrowed by John Kennedy Toole.
But Obama is certainly not a true genius as each passing day is showing.
All 4 articles together
dsped wrote in defense of Carter calling opposition to Obama racist:
“Yeah, what would a guy who grew up in the Deep South from 1924 onward know about racism, anyway?”
Sarcastically, I responded:
The one thing we know for certain about the world is it never changes. Obama would have been easily elected in 1924.
I was saying the world has changed since 1924 but Carter hasn’t. It is difficult to express sarcasm in print. :>)
When it comes to health care and medicine, Pharmacy, Big Pharma, pharmacology etc I have done the required study and spent the time. Obviously, your background and research lies in the fields above. I in no way able to debate your expertise in this field.
But one of my dearest friends is both a PhD in the field, a retired tenured professor from my alma mater the U of I and how he teaches at NYU.
The subject is of great interest to me and I wrote him about it last month. I sent his answers to you above. That is how I was able to reply so quickly. We have held many discussions on the subject. Literally Thursday night was the last. Humorously he described “liberal creationism”.
That pretty much describes my personal views.
