    Numbers do make a difference to me, but facts > feelings in my life. It's your choice if feelings > facts in your life. Takes all kinds to make the world spin.

    Change of subject? I've got stats on the virus too, but that seems way off topic.

    This country is in a constant state of moving forward. I've never witnessed "not moving at all".

    Are you talking to the sky? Who are you addressing, and are you suggesting that you identify as something other than a human? Who is calling them self a god???

    Putting a LEOs life in danger. It's really not all that complicated.

    Ever seen pond water? That's how they refer to your idea of movement in boot camp.

    It says "I am the god of t*ts and wine", and it's a line from a popular TV show. I make no actual claims of being a deity.

    your
    Listen to yourself...and your asking me that question???
    I am talking about silly human beings that keep giving the same old excuse they've been using for thousands of years.
    "Nobody's perfect". You hypocrites wouldn't except that excuse from your own children....
    yet you've been using it forever like it lets you off the hook for your ridiculous behavior.

    Methinks you don't know much about my ideas. Stick with your ideas. I'll stick with mine.

    No..that's make believe. I'm talking about a German police officer that was called on to a US Army base
    to remove/arrest an angry German man with a knife. The suspect refused to drop his weapon and leave
    the premises. The Police officer shot him in the leg and they carried him out on a stretcher.
    He didn't fill him full of holes although he had an Uzi at his disposal.
    What is it you folks don't understand about not killing people.

    Speaking of human beings as "they" makes you what? Non-human? Above us lowly imperfect mere humans. LOL

    Do you own a mirror by chance?

    If you could see past your own ego....you would know that I said "silly" human beings..
    i did not refer to all. I did not even refer to you. Perhaps that was a mistake.

    Yes, I know what you said. Thanks for your insight on those silly humans and how "they" all think. Very valuable.

    Things were actually better in the Jim Crow days. Sometimes when the Slave Patrol thugs murdered a Black guy they had to personally fork over a couple of bucks for his casket. Today, the thug cops get a paid vacation and a commendation when they murder a Black guy.

    disagree, white male cops and military have more self restraint because they did not get their jobs by affirmative action.

    individuals who get their jobs from affirmative action are less qualified.

    disagree, cops and military who generally use unlawful force both on and off duty were women and people of color.

    White Males time and again have demonstrated remarkable self-restraint under pressure, commies in the media aside.

    Bull. This is the excuse of the people who are losers when some position is taken by a woman or minority who breaks thru the white male base and a company hires the non-white or non-male, who is being hired for a SUPERIOR candidate instead of a "hiring my buddy/relative/scared of anyone different to myself".

    Is my assertion perfectly true in all cases? No, but its assuredly more true than the BS that white male cops and military have "more restraint" or any of the other supposedly superior attributes that racists try claim for the last 250+ years!

    All he had to do was stop and comply, he decided to gamble with life and lost.

    Don't run, don't fight, follow directions and live a long life after your Police encounter.

    Look at the photos from protest marches, I guess the mask muffles the screaming profanities.

    So even Right Wingers admit protestors are wearing their masks.
