    The guy in charge behaved in a fashion many find disgusting. They don't want to deal with his company and are publicizing why. This is nothing compared to the conservatives calling for a boycott of...

    Asteroids??

    Can you say "Caloris Basin"? Dig deep enough and there's likely a layer of pure gold down there. (Zone refining on an epic scale, courtesy of a rock that can't navigate.) It's not...

    Total US deaths now at about 120,000(*). About the same number as Japanese immediately killed at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    *cdc.gov as of 7/10/20[/QUOTE]

  4. You're arguing that the problem is a male problem...

    The two groups are not incompatible, thus you can't use the membership in one to disprove membership in the other..[/QUOTE] What on earth are you talking about? No one was doing any such...
  5. The state can order them to take such a risk to...

    My son fought in Afghanistan in a region where every male had a firearm. Every male was a potential enemy. Their orders were to not fire unless they were fired upon. Those soldiers were paid...
  6. He has plenty of time to aim carefully. If he's...

    Bullshit. You're ready and prepared to shoot at him the instant he chooses to escalate. Made clear by the gun pointed at his center mass. If he shoots, you shoot. If he doesn't, no one shoots....

    Yes and no--I agree with this perception but it's their educational system, not genetics. They value conformity a lot more than we do.

    You don't need to be able to stand up to use a gun.[/QUOTE] Thank you, Captain Obvious. Do you have a relevant point?[/QUOTE]

    The point is not being able to stand up doesn't make him not a threat.
  9. But pointing a gun at the bad guys is a...

    yes, right. because 'cops don't shoot FIRST' is exactly the same thing as 'cops never EVER point the gun at bad guys.'[/QUOTE]

    But pointing a gun at the bad guys is a meaningless gesture.
  10. Obviously he didn't desire a shootout with the...

    Obviously he didn't desire a shootout with the cops. Few criminals do. The question is what he will choose when faced with only two bad choices--being captured or shooting it out. Shooting it out...
  11. And you don't know he didn't. He tried very hard...

    You don't know that. [/quote]

    And you don't know he didn't. He tried very hard to keep his gun, that suggests he would use it.



    The protesters are motivated by those who get their position...
  12. You don't need to be able to stand up to use a...

    The guy could barely stand up - that is according to the involved officers. Which suggest he was not going to escape unless the officers were complete incompetents.

    We don't know if he...
  13. You would be ok with basically handing society...

    So....we lose all the people who will only cop if they get an unchallenged right to shoot first if it even looks like they hold a gun?

    I am okay with that. The kid shot for holding a toy would...
  14. The two groups are not incompatible, thus you...

    No, you will have to clear that with laughing dog.

    You see, you haven't linked to a source. Also, just because most women who are murdered are killed by current or ex intimate male partners,...
  15. So you threaten a cop with a gun and you get a...

    He was not much of a threat as he was running AWAY from the police, i.e. away from danger. He was clearly running out of steam and probably did not have the strength to run much further. He could...
  16. Don't expect cops to have anything to do with...

    I propose not shooting people until they have first shot at you. Could a cop die? Maybe. But they are supposed to be professionals. Them taking that risk is why they ought get respected. If they...
  17. Which is why an awful lot of us don't think much...

    Which is why an awful lot of us don't think much of BLM.

    It's not about bodies on the ground, it's about whether the police were acting properly.

    Sorry, but this loser pointed a gun at the cops...
  18. Which does not invalidate anything I said.

  19. Oh, fuck!

    Reality bites.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah. It turns out that the source of this outbreak was a security guard in one of the quarantine hotels that are used to house people who arrive back from overseas - he was...

    Good point, although with current tech I don't know how useful a lab-grown vagina would be--the organ is one thing, the nerves are another.

    Article is behind a paywall. But it's the New York Times so a distortion of reality is to be expected.[/QUOTE]
