    Chuck Norris jokes;

    Chuck Norris doesn't have good aim. His bullets just know better than to miss.

    When a zombie apocalypse starts, Chuck Norris doesn't try to survive. The zombies do.

    Yes, that appears to be the illusion.

    Perhaps the illusion of self is that it is not exactly what it perceives or believes itself to be.

  8. Poll: Well, that's odd...given the stats on wealth...

    The problem is you can't have it both ways. The money you want to distribute at the bottom is far more than what exists at the top that you could take even if you didn't mind the harm you would do...
  9. Your example has no real relationship to this...

    Yes comparison, sorry.
    In both cases there is a phenomenon that is killing thousands of people and a mitigating measure that is argued against on the basis of negative effects to a relatively very...
  10. Due process to prevent frivolous, mistaken or...

    That sentence proves you do not understand what constitutes due process.



    It absolutely does. That is the "process" part of "due process."



    How? Again, credible witness hears someone...
  11. No comparison. Sorry.

    This sounds an awful lot like the arguments against seat belts. There were even arguments about seat belts after their deployment saved tens of thousands of lives. Critics, often sponsored by car...
  12. It's has nothing to do with 'minor...

    It's more than a matter of inconvenience, it comes down to due process of the law, diligence and freedom from harassment. The police coming to your door to confiscate property because someone, a...
  13. I'm not mistaking anything. I am pointing to...

    False accusations generally have that effect.



    You mean in regard to Stephen Nichols, as that does not apply to Susan Holmes.



    It did not "fail" in either instance you sited. Quite the...
  14. Adequatly assessed before going before a judge. ...

    Then by that same argument no judge should be able or would be able to issue a PFA, a restraining order. It would all have to be first investigated by the police. Is that what you are advocating? ...
  15. Due process refers to checking the nature or...

    Does our constitution define "due process?" I don't think it does, it merely uses the phrase. If a judge has examined evidence and then issued a writ to seize property I don't see how that is not...

    But you don't want to prevent innocent people from being shot.

    You realize that correction is impossible when they're dead?[/QUOTE]

    But you don't want to prevent innocent people from being shot. [/quote] It seems to me that inconveniencing gun owners and protecting them from any sort of overzealous law enforcement is more...
  18. It's not one or the other. This is simply about...

    What you didn’t note is that, in Stephen Nichols’ case he was never actually terminated—merely suspended while being investigated—and it was almost immediately determined that the waitress who heard...

    If everyone gets paid regardless then there's no incentive for the people at the bottom to do a decent job.[/QUOTE]

  20. You still miss the point. The issue is precisely...

    Your first example had nothing to do with a red flag as you later admitted. The only substantiated examples did not show what you claim. In one, the investigation cleared the man whose confiscated...

    I am not the one misapplying constitutional amendments to justify my handwringing over hypothetical injustices. I am not the using gun nut sources to present very biased examples based on incomplete...

    You're acting like a religious fanatic here.[/QUOTE]

    I don't think so. Everyone who does productive work is contributing to the running of a society, supplying the needs and wants of the...
  23. Hysteria? Not at all, now you are being...

    I have. I think the hysteria in DBT’s gun nut sources is unwarranted. To date, there is no evidence of real harm from these laws.

    The citizens of the states with red flag laws through their duly ...
  24. These things are preventable. Easily...

    You are mistaken. Due process foes little to prevent mistaken or arrests made on flimsy evidence. It does offer more protection after the arrest. In both of your examples (which were not such...
