    This was predictable and is observable here. There is a bias against blacks in America, which results in them getting killed and in the public not giving a shit.

    Second, is bias in favor of police. People assign all kinds of qualities---manliness, heroism, archetypal qualities-- to cops.

    The de facto policy is that cops can kill blacks and nearly always get away with it.

    What I don't get is why conservatives so willingly fall in love with the police, who are simply Gendarmes for the State, to be used to further the goals of the State.

    I suspect they have daddy issues, but that's for a later discussion.

    CaptainShuddup says

    Because one thing is for certain, the Latino community are no where near as Liberal as they found Obama's future of hope to be.

    Except for on the issues, where Latinos are MORE liberal than the general public.

  • On 23 Nov 2014 in Republicans Admit Benghazi Fake "Scandal", CL said:

    Well, now that that's settled and republicans will certainly believe it, we can move on to how Obama is not a Muslim and the ACA is not socialism.

  • On 19 Nov 2014 in Facebook shuttle drivers to vote on union, CL said:

    If those low wage workers get increases, then my silicon valley stuff will cost more. Or silicon valley will just relocate because, ya know, who wants to stay in Brown's commie paradise? Am I right?

    Plus, the high wages and profits are just normal for us, because ya know, the market. And we're so white and male. Kinda like you are used to shit wages because you're some kind of minority. It's just how it is!

    What about the point of the article, Cap'n?

    You can summarize any sentence from Curious2 as "I hate ACA, there is no good in ACA, and all problems stem from ACA".

    He pretends with the faux air of objectivity, but is as blind as a partisan.

    He also labors under the delusion that if we all don't hate it with the same vitriole, then we want to read some insanely slanted dissertation.

    It's tiring.

    bob2356 says

    Do you have any short term memory left at all?

    Conservatives lack either memory or integrity and honesty, because they are wrong or deceitful about so many things but have so few consequences for being so.

    Didn't Rand Paul, Conservative patnet hero, run with the airborne Ebola propaganda?

    Aren't the conservative nuts the ones that think the government assholes manipulate everyone to further their own ends?

    Except when they pimp unscientific fear, and have an (R). Cognitive dissonance?

  • On 8 Nov 2014 in Reading the paper this AM . . ., CL said:

    If we all pitch in and help struggling business owners for free whenever they need help, they'll save a ton of money. When they save enough, they'll hire us to do the work we are doing for free.

  • On 4 Nov 2014 in My predictions for tomorrow's election, CL said:

    That's how I feel. Let the GOP burn the place down. The voters need to be reminded, apparently, just how terrible the jackass gop is.

    Sounds like a lot of bullshit to me.

  • On 24 Oct 2014 in Tea Party Republicans highly motivated to vote in midterms, CL said:

    If only they were motivated to read, get out of mom's basement, put away the weird porn and drop their KKK memberships.

    They gas you and fuck your face and charge you for all sorts of shit they don't do.

    It's called INNOVATION, ASSHOLES!

    And THEN you need the orthodontist work, Turtledove.

    Thanks Rin. Are the above true even if the company is not a tech producer or a start-up?

    marco says

    Now even Rolling Stone wants to blow Obama.

    And NPR is the official War Radio Station - love the puff pieces on the "noble service" our war criminals are performing in Afghanistan, etc.

    It's over, folks. Get used to it.

    KPFA calls NPR "National Pentagon Radio" for that reason. They're not liberal, the Republicans just like to work the refs and fuck with everyone's funding.

    Because the GOP is made up of petulant assholes.

  • On 11 Oct 2014 in You guys were right about wages, CL said:

    indigenous says

    What is the deal with grocery prices, they say there is no inflation at the grocery store (leaving out early this year because of the hard winter). But bacon is now 5-6 bucks a pound it doesn't seem like that long ago it was half that.

    Pigs had diarrhea. California has drought.

  • On 11 Oct 2014 in You guys were right about wages, CL said:

    The rightwing cries that the minimum wage increases not just the bottom, but a whole slew of wages. If you pay a McD worker $20, the Pizza manager who made the same would demand $40, and so on.

    In other words, the GOP fights minimum wage increases BECAUSE they cause wage inflation.

    Of course, they say "the consumer will pay at the checkout!", but the consumer contains more than low-wage workers, and we can shop around when a store finds a miraculous way to compete. And they have room to cut prices, since profits are at record highs.

    Welcome to liberalism, Cap'n!

  • On 7 Oct 2014 in State offers up to $100,000 in mortgage principal reduction, CL said:

    There's an income limit, if I recall. I know I did not qualify a few years ago for anything through Keep Your Home California, and some banks did not participate in principle reduction.

    Yes. So if the game were "I am King, and therefore have all the riches. You are not, therefore you do not", then everyone who was not King would not be so due to their own lack of ambition?

    But that is not capitalism, is it? ;-)

    They can also be "kings" in their domain. Or even kingmakers. Labels only go so far.

    You believe that we live in a meritocracy? The point of the King analogy, is that there is limited capacity for jobs and goods. You can distribute them to one person, 1000 people, or to everyone to varying degrees. If you can acknowledge that one man having everything is wrong, then is 2 better? 200 Million? What does the scale look like in a good economic system?

    What makes you think that where we are at on the scale is good enough? That somehow we landed on the right way to distribute goods?

    Hardworking people can't afford to buy the goods they make. Others can't even afford basic shelter. Still others can't even get a job.

    Try harder! There are chairs for you!

    Most employers say minimum wage should be increased

    Employers can pay any wage now above the minimum they desire. I don't understand whose approval they need, as this title implies?

    They want a level playing field for the employer. If employers have all the leverage (and they do), they can pay very low wages(and they do). Higher wages are more fair and moral than the current minimum, but if the good employer does it, they are at a competitive disadvantage.

    No mention of how the media said the election would be close but actual election was a 10 point difference?

    That's easy. It was Republican pollsters.

    What is the point of THAT game? To prevent wage pressure on the owners?

    It is simply a result of all the dynamics at play, projected as arbitrary numeric measures.

    Yes. So if the game were "I am King, and therefore have all the riches. You are not, therefore you do not", then everyone who was not King would not be so due to their own lack of ambition?
