Brings back memories of Elian Gonzales.
If it's possible for crabs to crawl out of this barrel, how come we all fall when I try to climb up their backs?
I've been bike commuting east all the way out to ridgeway and haven't died once. It's always sketchy to be the only cyclist on the road, but the first person to take the lane makes it much easier for the next one. M
Last call and final word from the Incredible Brichy, mind reader, and his assistant the lovely Stolichnaya!
Law enforcement thinks by stopping and lock up a bunch of addicts is going to help clear up this epidemic and that is just not so. Yes, it is much easier to lock up the user but they create other problems; overcrowding jail and prisons, break up families for twenty years and causing financial ruin for families, but no one offers solutions. Even if the county sheriff's office, MPD, detectives and the Federal government are given names, addresses of the dealers and pushers they still do nothing. The young addict is setting in jail/prison life wasting away with each passing day making it impossible to get a job when they get released and become a productive part of society and taxpayer. Another thing even when these first time offenders do their time for the crime; they carry a scarlet letter with them wherever they go to apply for a job (Felony), why is that necessary? They are paying for that one mistake for the rest of their life. There needs to be some brainstorming and discussions on these topics.
You know what, I think all of you seem to believe there is some form of "world belief" that, if it were to be allowed to come to fruition, we all win and all will be well.
What crap. There is no such thing. There are ideas of such things, but there is no agreement as to what it is.
Well I'm thrilled you're back in Memphis being your creative self. Start the musicevoltion!
Nothing to say but win the AAC Tournament or stay at home. Unless you want a CIB or CBI berth. I don't even know which it is, that's how much I care about it.
Oak Tree, making perfect sense to oneself is the best way to approach bedtime.
@NickR - Yeah, that's why I asked. And also why I said it's a false equivalency.
OakTree, In the 60s I was more likely to be pushed in a stroller. But from what I've read or was told, waiting for the cultural consensus was wisely superseded and Legislative and Judicial was pushed ahead of the common will.
@NickR - Yeah.. did some marching too. How about you? Seriously.
One thing to remember, is that the Executive doesn't make law.
Real change happens via Legislative means.
And Judicial interpretation thereof.
OakTree, were you even alive in the 60's? "Executive control into areas where the cultural consensus hadn't jelled yet"
@datGuy, @NickR - That's a false equivalency. Much of this debate has been caused by people hiking up the rhetoric, without actually looking at what the right thing to do for each individual is. Because each case is different, justice requires a more specific prescription within the law. There is no 'one size fits all' in law here, just like there is no such thing as only two sexes. This issue would have been better kept within the medical paradigm, instead of the courtroom.
Obama pushed his Executive control into areas where the cultural consensus hadn't jelled yet, so he got push-back, it's as simple as that. This is one of many examples where his administration chose confrontation instead of consensus building, and as a result, he got a backlash. Now, everything he did is likely to be undone.
For those of us who believe in fighting for real progress, this is a tactical misstep which could have been avoided. He wanted a fight, so now we've got one. And it was totally avoidable.
datGuy, or Asians to marry whites in California.
Is equal rights for all "overreach"? I think not
If we left it up to the states, it would still be illegal for Caucasians and African Americans to marry throughout the Confederacy
da da duuuum. But now we all know what inside a girl's bathroom actually looks like. And nobody can put that genie back in the bottle. And of course as we all know, genies are muslim...
Electric bikes are a great (and cost effective) way to get around the city with this new bike infrastructure. However any place east of highland still feels risky.
@CL - Actually, they've got the wrong AG in the cartoon. It should be Eric Holder. In case you don't remember, it was the Obama administration injecting itself into the issue, which caused 11 states to file federal lawsuits over Executive overreach in 2016.
If Obama hadn't done that, then none of this correction by the current Trump administration would even be happening.
It's tiresome to me how liberals seem to forget their own overreaches, and only want to notice it when it's the conservatives who are the perpetrators of the egregious behavior.
This oscillation between extremes is what is tearing the country apart. Sooner or later moderates like me are going to have to put both petulant parties in a corner for a timeout.
For their own good.
But don't you love the image?
