  1. You cannot teach and be concerned that facts will hurt someone's feelings. Feeling bad is called having a conscience.
  2. 92% of people released on bail appear for their hearing/trial dates. 8% do not. Four (4%) of that 8% are re-arrested for another crime. Does that sound like a free for all? It isn't. Those numbers are not exact in every jurisdiction, but they are reflective of most of the country. In my opinion, we have to do a better job drawing a line between violent and nonviolent crimes. We have to stop assigning felony convictions for nonviolent crimes, other than extremely serious felony crimes. We cannot label someone as a felon and then upon release make their attempt to live a better life as difficult as we currently do. That only produces more violent criminals in the long run. The one area that is problematic is when a person in the U.S. illegally is allowed to post bond. They are usually allowed to post a bond if they have been employed and have ties to the community in which they were arrested. They can't be immediately deported due to the pending charge, yet most local jurisdictions don't want to pay to house them for 6 months to a year or more unless they have committed a violent offense. https://www.wired.com/story/bail-reform-tech-justice/
  3. NOBODY is saying that is anything other than horrible. The goal, I assume, is to prevent this sort of thing from happening. That should be the goal. Will placing a 17 year old convicted of stealing an automobile or getting into a fight outside a bar in prison for 10, 15, or 20 years accomplish that? The answer is no. Will a system that looks at defendants and decides that people that are poor should be sentenced to longer prison terms than those with family support or an education make the system work or fail. The answer is that it would destroy any system of justice. What is your solution, other than claiming that people on the other side of the political aisle are communists that want more murders and more chaos?
  4. I don't know who these people are that refuse to protect poor neighborhoods. We have more people in prison in the U.S. than any other country on the planet. We also have more guns than any other country and we make them easy to get. The crimes aren't being committed with shot guns and hunting rifles. There is no one thing that will fix the problem, but several different things have to be done if we want real solutions.
  5. This is Rich coming from someone that supported the prior President. Really Rich.
  6. Georgia turned blue because Republicans refused to vote for David Perdue & Kelly Loefler. In even larger numbers, they turned away from Trump. In the initial general election, David Perdue received more than 12,000 votes more than Donald Trump. We don't have to guess whether there was fraud or not. There wasn't. Judges have made that conclusion and after an audit, a recount and a hand recount, nothing changed. Many people realize the pathetic desperation that comes with constantly telling people that they have to support a party or a candidate so that they can save America. The need to always oppose what the other party is doing to the point of being a constant 180 degree position is also pathetic. Both parties do that.
  7. You clearly did not. Yes, Trump rattled off fantasy rumors that had no basis in reality. He also told the Sec of State that he could find the votes from any of a number of the problem ballots(that never existed). Trump then told the Sec of State that the GBI was either incompetent of corrupt. The sad part is the the Sec of State was doing his job and for that, the Republican legislature wanted him out of office. https://www.ajc.com/news/nation-world/read-transcript-of-trumps-phone-call-to-georgia-secretary-of-state/IRLR3EXOMVFJFJIVYYUQ2C6QTM/
  8. How does that change the facts or right and wrong? If the legislature endorsed suspending the State Constitution, does that make it the right thing to do? We are a nation of laws, not men. There were legislatures 60 years ago that could have easily passed bills preventing anyone other than whites from voting. Would that have justified the unconstitutional taking of those rights from minorities?
  9. Teach nothing that could possibly make a white kid feel bad. This is so stupid that laughing at it seems strange. https://abc7chicago.com/critical-race-theory-florida-bill-discomfort-ron-desantis-what-is-crt-in-schools/11491558/
  10. That is horse s*** and you know it. I did happen to see a couple minutes of Hannity yesterday. I was in an establishment that had it playing on the screen. I just had to start laughing loudly when I heard him say how terrifying Biden's press conference was. He actually stated that he could not remember seeing a more disjointed press conference. Being a lying piece of s*** pays so well these days.
  11. It's funny cause it's true. That barber shop should still have that new smell too it as little as it gets used.
  12. For the millionth time, it is not those provisions that are dangerous. The real purpose of the Georgia legislation was to remove the Secretary of State from his role as head of the State Elections Board and thereby taking the certification of an election out of the Sec of State's job duties and placing it in an appointed chairman of the elections board. This was done because Georgia's Secretary of State refused to play ball when asked to do so by Trump in 2020. The elected Secretary of State refused to commit a crime in order to help a sitting U.S. President. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-demands-georgia-secretary-state-find-votes-hand/story?id=75027350
  13. If you were being serious, you would have to admit that nobody in the main stream of either party wants $5/gallon gas, weak foreign policy, no punishment for crime, open borders etc. That is the equivalent of saying that all Republicans are racists that are only happy when we are at war.
