  1. IMO, (based upon my education, training and personal experience) the most important element in the way "some people view the color of their skin" is the way Afro-American's view themselves and their history (slavery), which is an ongoing societal institution in the psyche of (many) black people.
  2. I wasn't talking about "lazy people", so much as personal and cultural, motivational belief systems, predominantly in the black community, IMO. More on Afro-American Psychology later. If you will bear with me, please.
  3. Thanks for the translation Slim! I was using social worker language so the social workers, (and revolutionaries, if any) could understand what I was saying.
  4. That may be the good news but that finding will no doubt come under attack by experts from the defense side. Pathologist Baden, who reportedly is helping Floyd's family, may be the tie breaker, if it came to that, because he will likely be the most credible witness.
  5. Socialism is not the answer. It's been repeatedly tried all over the world and failed. People cannot be made equal by destroying the country's economic system. There will always be economic disparity, no matter who is "at the top" because it's not about the money. Not even close.
  6. Socio-Economic deprivation has been used as an excuse for criminal behavior for many decades and billions of dollars has been thrown at it. There are more social welfare programs today than ever existed in any society in history. Even in the current food shortage situation, food banks and food sources are available to those in need that seek them out. Many very Liberal criminal justice system reforms instituted in recent years do not appear to decrease this type of social behavior either. Given the opportunities and support systems available to those who seek them in this country, at some
  7. CORONER'S FINDING: Official finding by the Hennipin Co. Corner's office in the Floyd case is Homicide. (Death at the hands of another) That will be expert witness testimony in any trial against defendant(s) charged with Murder (unlawful killing of a human being) Theoretically rules out all other causes; accidental, natural, etc. Step one in backing up the DA's Murder 3/Man 2 filing.
  8. Tim, Are you sure you didn't sell your 40 a bit prematurely?
  9. I'm not implying anything about your age Luke, but could you please tell me how is it that you so readily recognized the Fruit Loops box in the photograph?
  10. I haven't had anyone die next to me either Luke. And outside of myself, I really don't know the answer either. I strongly suspect though, that a big part of it may have something to do with that red, white and blue piece of cloth, and that song. Take Care,
  11. Well Luke, since I didn't bring up Mr. Kaepernick as a talking point, I didn't think it was something I needed to focus on very much. But like you said, maybe next time. I appreciate you reaching out.
  12. Getting weaker by the minute Bob. Why don't we postpone the "dance" until you have a chance to back up and regroup? Maybe even get back to issues horita? Bien.
  13. Weak mi hijo. Probrecito. Very weak. Not sure you could stand up by your self on the dance floor any more . . .
  14. I declined the dance. The metaphor is silly. You didn't get "the tune" then and you won't get it now, unless you start listening. Master Luke used the term patriot like it was a slur: phony, or pretensive, and certainly as a pejorative. I flipped the term and made it, "non-patriot". Simple Goose and Gander stuff.
  15. Dance Bob? You can't be serious! You already stood me up on a lunch date and now you have the gall to ask me to dance? I recently found out that you are known as, "Twinkle Toes" down at your hangout. I don't know why that is, and I don't want to find out, so I'll pass on the baile. We could discuss the issues, and I could respond to your throw down, but I know you are not interested in a meaningful discussion. You just like to argue. I suspect that you would argue with a fence post, then pull it up and argue with the hole! Besides, aren't we supposed to keep the 7th day holy and not fight so
  16. Thank you so much for the comforting words Senior, I sincerely hope so, because my poor Indio profile rock formation has collapsed in a heap of rubble which I discovered when I was there in Feb. Que Lastima, muy triste . . .
  17. I just hope they stay out of the Bradshaw's. That place is dangerous enough already . . .
  18. Darn Slim! I didn't know you were a Byrd Watcher. Cool!
  19. 1) "So you're saying that since I don't have combat experience, my words carry less weight than yours?" No Luke, that's not what I am saying, but you did make the following statement: "Service members who fought and died in defense for our country didn't do it for a flag or a song. They did it for what the flag and the song represent" and since you so self assuredly purported to know what war veterans killed in the line of duty died for, I was asserting that the only way you could possibly know this, IMO, is to have served alongside veterans in war. That's why I challenged you on that sub
  20. If Trey was prosecuting the case, I might have faith in a murder 1 filing and then hope to get a plea to 2nd degree to avoid a trial. The elements of 1st degree (and 2nd degree), were not there, (according to Hennipin Minn. co. attorney Mike Freeman) since you have to prove premeditation, malice aforethought with the specific intent to kill. Usually very difficult to prove in any murder case and almost impossible to prove in the trial of a police officer, "under color of authority" Perhaps South Carolina has a lesser burden of proof, or Trey Gowdy may be a "high filer" to increase the od
  21. Good Luck Luke and Best Wishes!
  22. No Luke, you are not my son, but your posts reminds me of my self when I was young. And if you don't mind using the term Geezer, I don't think you should mind me using the term son. And it's not about me thinking that your patriotism isn't as grand as mine, what ever that's supposed to mean. After Vietnam, my "grand" patriotism, wasn't quite as grand as you might think. It did open my eyes, as life experiences tend to do. But I never lost faith in the meaning behind the symbolism which you cryptically refer to as a "deluded version of US vs Them" It's not about serving or not serving eit
  23. We better be. And it's not the distorted, "more concerned"; it's not difficult to understand. It's all a major concern. And one doesn't justify the other. As much as some would have us believe.
  24. That's the rumor that's going around . . .
  25. Absolutely. But I hope you're not saying that just because it's possible, and it's like it's no big deal that it makes it right?
