I haven't chosen a side.

You say that, but we all know it's BS.

Surprised Josh didn't put this one up.


All along, York’s teachings grew stranger and stranger. He adopted the name “Chief Black Thunderbird Eagle” and announced he was the leader of a lost Native American tribe that fought early European colonization. He then declared that he was an extraterrestrial from the planet Rizq.

A pseudo religious cult led by a charismatic psychotic...

“I declare I’ve never heard of such a thing...” (clutches pearls)

Excusing racists?

Sad.

Especially child killers: https://www.ajc.com/news/local/breaking-surprise-guilty-plea-gwinnett-cult-baby-starving-death/mUAV0qvqI3mtuzF5UOltxM/

What?

A pseudo religious cult led by a charismatic psychotic...


Whoever heard of such a thing?

How about listing some of the superstars, like David Koresh, Jim Jones and Charlie Manson?

You know that guy, Michael the Blackman who goes to all the Trump rallies? The guy who holds up the Blacks For Trump sign? He used to be a member of a Miami based murder cult in the 90s.

Ever hear of these guys?

Yeah...

You’re trying to say someth8ng but you don’t know what it is.

Excuse making for bigots? Wow, you're tune has changed.

You really need to get a new hobby.

You really need to be more honest with yourself.

Have you considered therapy?
I offered that to you in the past, but you've rejected it. Maybe it would help you, but you'd have to quit lying to yourself.

You didn’t have to offer me anything. I’ve been with my therapist for two years and have partaken of professional assistance off and on since the mid-80s.

Ain’t no shame in my game.

Utley,  are you aware that a lot of your posts here just reek of condescension?   Maybe instead of your tutorials you could try listening to people.

I read very well and very carefully. And I reflect the posters' own views back to them. They'd prefer not to be outed for their hypocrisy.

Nice of you to misunderstand that situation and provide your own condescending tone to the mix.

Being a reflexive jerk, what passes for culture in The City of Brotherly Love.

Welp!


http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2378023118801096

Hi, Larry -

The charts show weighting with a range from 1 to 2. I'll confess to not understanding how that translates into anything I already know. I can see the steel rise in "gotten more than they deserve, for example, but as I don't know what a 1 means, I certainly don't know what a 2 means.



Do you have an understanding of this?

If not, I can do more digging, but if so it would make our lives easier and give other readers who are even less proficient at math and stats than I am a fighting chance of pretending to disagree with its findings!

Thanks!



I'd also note that the graphs shift from an every 2 year measure from 1986 - 1994 to a 4 year measure from 2000 - 2016, with nothingfor 1996 or 1998 at all. That makes the rises to the right of these charts look steeper than they would be if they were elongated by the same intermediate periods that the left side is at.

I don't expect you to know what's with that, but it looks as if I am going to have to write to these people to understand what they are doing! I had misleading graphs with a passion, even (especially!) when they support information I already suspected! It makes it easier to dismiss what they have to say and undermine the entire discussion!

Grrrr!

Absolute security is not a myth.
Absolute security protects absolutely...was Obama assassinated?
No.
Why not?
His security was absolute.

No security?
No hope...off to who-knows-where you will be dragged...to a fate unknown.

Guns are the answer.
Guns, the bigger the better, and handguns.

Guns, and physical barriers [razor wire, razor wire skirts etc on ships];

You could just wrap yourself up head to toe in razor wire. You’d be safe then. Just do it far out of reach of your phone and any computer.

Look up the post hoc fallacy, Bambi.

That something did not happen is not proof that it could not happen.

Using your "reasoning," the vast majority of our schools and businesses must have absolute security, because nobody has been killed there.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/spokesman-gop-kavanaugh-nomination-resigns-has-been-accused-harassment-past-n912156

You just cannot make this stuff up.

The GOP spokesperson who's been helping the GOP with how to frame the Kavanaugh stuff had to resign when his prior work history came out and it included his getting fired after an accusation of sexual harassment coupled with falsified resume.

He denies all wrong-doing, but he also resigned from the PR firm he was on leave from.

The GOP’s main function as a unified scumbag protection front is visibly falling to pieces. This is because of trump, who is too big a scumbag to ever credibly protect.
