Re: “What the world needs now ....

Sure, hahaha. Right, we could come up with all kinds of "but what if..." scenarios and laugh and pat ourselves on the back. I'm just saying that human behavior is icky sometimes and that good people say and do bad things, but it doesn't mean they're bad people.

But that said, I let loose of this. Fire away, project your frustrations and righteousness on this woman. Go ahead.

Let's all go the way tech wants us to... no thinking, no empathy, no critical thinking, no gray area, just like/dislike, yes/no, right/wrong, racist/not racist, etc. We're dancing at our own funerals.

Re: “What the world needs now ....

The REAL story is always more nuanced and complicated than the media-created version, but yeah, okay. Agreed this woman was terrible, but look at the details of how this story came about, why she called police in the first place, and the subsequent video from a bombarding video-phone holder and you'll wonder if this woman is truly so evil or more everyday prejudiced and misguided and, ultimately, yes, regretful. The media creates magnetized versions of reality. Too bad we take what-we-see for granted as being 'the truth' and we're unable to balance with nuance, human error and prejudice, etc. All of it is so sad. By these metrics, your day is soon in which you F up, say the wrong thing, get caught up in an emotional fit, etc., and someone captures it and you're doomed! I refuse to accept the media portrayals and 'hot take' experts as the lead of what's really happening in our country. Sorry.

Re: “10 dead in Texas high school shooting

I point the finger at the 10% who are not interested in what's happening in the communities of the 90%. The 10% who make sure their industries (medicine, law, tech, media, etc) are carefully managed to maximally benefit themselves, their children, their communities, yet if laborers want to gather to form a union to maximize their labor, it's un-American.

I could go on and on, but in the end, the 10% in media, politics, finance and corporate America don't do anything (or very, very little) to better the lives of everyone else.

The wick is lit on this experiment. The smoke is getting thicker and thicker. We're inching closer to the explosion. The elites have turned their back on America. Don't believe me? Read closely and deeply. The United States is not on most corporation's long-term business plans. The very Americans who chide others for not being American enough are turning their backs and making plans to leave us.

Another shooting, another boon for cable news and advertisers. It's good for business and good for political careers to make violence and guns an issue. Everyone's getting a bonus again this year, that is, the 10%.

Why CHANGE A THING? This is the gravy train.

This is America. And business is good.

Re: “10 dead in Texas high school shooting

That would be the greatest outcome then. No death penalty for young man and one less lawyer cozying up with dangerous criminals so they can brag to their Sunday brunch group about how amazing they are. Win-win.

Re: “10 dead in Texas high school shooting

The shooter will get the death penalty and liberal lawyers with $250,000 law degrees will rush to his side to save his life or make sure his injection doesn't sting and he's not uncomfortable when the drugs take effect.

Said lawyer will write some b.s. book, op-ed, appear in media about her 'struggle' representing death row inmates (no matter how horrific their crimes) and she'll get patted on the back, which, at this point, that back will already be calloused and tough after years of patting herself on the back.

Re: “Weed and work in the Woods: The Senator's hijinks took advantage of Ecclesia's rare designation

In 5 years this will all be past him. He'll be thriving somewhere. The business and corporate community don't consider these types of crimes as "real" crimes. Had he walked into someone's house and stolen a laptop, this dude's life would be over.

Re: “Shannon Hills mayor arrested

Charges will be dropped. We know how this will end.
