Re: The Oh So Tolerant Hard Leftist SF Folk

I disagree. And agree. Preventing a speaker from speaking is exactly "suppression" and the ability of a minority to do so is far from indicating that the speaker's product is "crap" in the marketplace of ideas. The issue here was not "shouting down" but violent suppression. The speaker was not (AFA...

Re: The Oh So Tolerant Hard Leftist SF Folk

Jarl--violence does not necessarily equate to shooting someone dead, it can take many forms; and, FWIW, I do not condone killing someone in nearly all circumstances. Nor am I going to equate the violence of both sides; it is not hypocrisy to support the violence of the French Underground, yet decry...

Re: The Oh So Tolerant Hard Leftist SF Folk

Sue--certainly shouting down ideas is a time honored tradition (I recall many times standing and shouting "1-2 fuck you"to shout people down), but int he long run it is counterproductive (and it exactly why I personally started to avoid participating in demonstrations; I think the shouting down onl...

Re: The Oh So Tolerant Hard Leftist SF Folk

In this case, the nomenclature chosen by the organizer(s) is false - whether or not Twitter allows or disallows particular voices is indeed not a free speech issue. But, the idiot's right to get up on his hind legs and speak freely of his errant opinion is not in doubt. Silencing his protest by vio...

Re: New Supreme Amy Coney Barrett according to CBS News just now

Unfortunately, term limits (I'd support 8 year lifetime limit in all Federal elected offices) are a non-starter. So is punishing corruption with crucifixion.

Re: New Supreme Amy Coney Barrett according to CBS News just now

Yesterday Lindsey Graham told Fox News that his committee "will approve Barrett by October 22, so she will be on track for a full Senate vote before the end of October." Note the words. Not the committee will vote on her. The committee will approve her by Oct 22. This is the very definition of a ri...

Re: DONALD TRUMP HAS COVID19!!

He had pretty good doctors who brought him past the cancer. But they couldn't help him defeat COVID. You seem to be using this sequence of events as some sort of argument that COVID ain't that bad, Jarl: your logic escapes me. It is actually quite simple: for a 74 year old with cancer, damn near an...

Jarl doesn't care. He only wants us to...... REOPEN THE DAMN COUNTRY! Because over 200,000 people have died and that's apparently not enough. I get it. You want to crater the economy as long as it gets Trump out of office. You care not at all how many lives are ruined. You care not at all that hund...

Re: Music recommendations

You can tell who's the trained, practiced professional operatic tenor, and who's the talented amateur wanna-be. But let's face it; Meat Loaf was no slouch. In his prime, he had a range of over three octaves, and that's a good point from which to start.  If he had chosen to follow the same path as P...

Unfortunately nothing will come of it. He won't get sick; and that will be enough for his rabid fans to point and say that the pandemic is overblown. That’s one possibility. Or he might go on a ventilator to no avail, then die, and then our long national nightmare will be FINIS. Far more likely: he...

Re: It's Not Unusual....
