Re: Not Showing ID to Police

Albaby: From the link that Freethinker posted (and others), it sounds like Watts is the one who jumped to an erroneous conclusion. She assumed the officer chose to initiate the encounter because they were an interracial couple - she was not aware [more]

Re: 2 dead journalists > 200,000 dead syrians

Albaby: Would you mind posting a link to that TED talk? I'd like to see it, because this seems like a pretty impractical way to fight terrorism.

TED has several talks on terrorism, but this is the one I was referring to:

Re: Sanders for president?

Re: Smuggling Rice

Re: Not Showing ID to Police

Albaby: I'm always curious about this response to police asking for your identification. It's certainly true that you have a legal right to refuse to provide that ID (it's not true that they don't have a right to ask for it - just that you have a [more]

Re: Whither Scotland's Empire?

Should Scotland abandon its experiment with English imperialism and retreat behind its ancient Roman wall, or should we put our shoulders to the task of rebuilding, reforming, and restructuring our sadly run-down southern investments?

Re: 2 dead journalists > 200,000 dead syrians

Re: Poll: watches

A "Rollex" should cost less than $15.

Just like "Wrigglers" gum should cost less than $1. Yes, this latter is or was a real product.

Re: The ark built by amateurs...

IIRC, you can see this in any Jimmy John's, where it goes something like:

Remember, a lone amateur built the Ark.

Re: The inflection point

1pg: James Watt. Gotta be worth several more points in your column all by himself.

Re: I Swear, If Anyone Says Thank god...

I was so, so tempted to post something to a cousin's facebook page, after another god-bot cousin commented on a page noting his 10 years cancer-free since his bone marrow transplant "thanks for God's grace".

Re: water...

When I lived in Phoenix in the early '80s, it was very clear that Phoenix was not very familiar with rain.

Re: two minimum wages...

Albaby: That's certainly one view.

However, consider another perspective. Merely because the low-wage jobs disappear doesn't mean that those workers are going to disappear. So does that mean that now, instead of being partially subsidized

Re: Update

It's good to hear from you, even if the news is mixed.

As for advice, I second fmNh and 1pg: document everything. Write these things down on paper and date them.

Re: Could Brown have been mentally unstable?

Simpler explanation: PTSD, from living in Ferguson?

Where the 'poor tax' is a way of life (the criminal justice system is used to fund local gov't), a huge fraction of young black men are imprisoned, and many *don't* make it?
