    She is an old timer, if anyone should be given that perk it is her. They also deactivated Dianne's account when she asked, so why not deactive her account when she asked for it to be deactivated. Seems like double standards to me.

    Silly mods, why didn't they just deactivate her account or give her a temp ban. Its evident that she was still emotional from the recent election. Heck, I would have punched out a Trumpster and asked for a permban if I had not pulled back from posting after the election. A smart mod would have either deactivated her account like she asked or given her a tempban to cool off. Perm banning her is just stupid. Just saying.

    Isn't General James Mattis on the board of General dynamics? Don't think he would forget his MIC employer when he starts serving as defense secretary.

    I wonder how many John deer tractors increased the net amount of jobs in this country. Trump should have known that we manufacturer many of those robotic arms now taking hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs. Making the robots too wouldn't bring the jobs back. The problem with manufacturing in the US is that labor else where in the world is just too cheap for most American worker to compete with. How many here would do anything for $10 per workday salary?

    My answer other than holding cops accountable is for better training. There is a story in the news about a 14 yr old wielding a knife that the police shot. The cops weren't alone and they could have easily take him down with little to no injury to themselves. The boy had been in a fight, his face was bloody and he looked exhausted but instead of taking him down or maybe shooting him in the leg or something, they decided to shoot the torso which left the poor boy fighting for him life. So training is big in my book after accountability. I wish someone more popular would post the story cos it is very newsworthy.

    Socialism, I wonder why is that people think socialism is the problem here. They have had a socialist system for a long time now and things have been OK, at least not disastrous and all of a sudden thing go bad. Before people start saying this was a gradual process, I remember news about 3 yrs ago when all of a sudden they could not afford toilet papers in the country. There are so many socialist countries doing very well in the world. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Norway, etc and when you look deep, they all have one thing that they really socialize and that is the natural resources of the country. Look at the GCC countries and Saudi Arabia that I know for sure cos my parents work there and they have no taxes. They are socialist but they barely pay any individual taxes and even in the scandinavian countries where taxes are much higher, the society is not crumbling like in Venezuela. Then you ask yourself why Venezuela, they like many of the socialist countries I mentioned about nationalized their oil industry. The difference here is that Venezuela is the only country dealing with sanctions from the US and EU. Not saying that socialism is good but the question I ask is this, what is a country to do with its lucrative national resources? sell it to multinational oil companies or rent it or try and run it themselves. If I was a voter, I would vote for rent and don't sell no matter how fast this green energy tech is happening.

    Poster child for unintended consequences? how so? I really don't understand this statement. What is he projecting? that not giving tax cuts to one company and threatening to punish companies that off shore their US jobs with tarrifs would lead to companies refusing to create new jobs in the US? And yes he is criticizing Trump, you may not appreciate the particular criticism but that is what he is doing. There are videos of him criticizing Obama on foreign policy, domestic spying etc criticism that would echo the sort of stuff Rand Paul criticizes him for. What do you mean by substance? do you not see the logic of how Trump threatening companies with tariffs if they off shored American jobs would scare them from creating new American jobs in the future? the logic is the substance in this case

    Seeing as it is kids going the taunting, the fact that the area is racially tolerant means nothing. I went to middle school that is mostly black in the heart of Africa and kids who were really dark skins were still taunted for their skin colour. Kids were called blackie, midnight etc. Now had it been the adults making the disparaging remarks then the tolerant level of the society would come into consideration. I have noticed that kids can sometimes be the most wicked, mean and hateful people to their fellow kids. They have very little empathy for their fellow class mate. I know this very well cos I was taunted daily because I had alopecia and very skinny as a kid so they thought I had AIDS. The sort of insults I experienced as a kid would break the average man.

    Yes, I usually do the same for anything Alex Jones and Stefan Molyneux but every once in a while, I give in a watch their material and yes they do make some good points every once in a while. I believe that nobody is wrong all the time and this is one instance I think Keith Olbermann is right about some of his critique of trump. Btw, for anyone brave enough to watch the clip. I do not agree with everything he said, just agree on he unintended consequence he pointed out in the video with Trump economic policy

    I was planning to wait and see before I made my judgement but listen to the case Keith Olbermann made about his policy. Yes he might have saved a few hundred jobs but if he goes along with his plan on bullying companies who try to take jobs overseas, then companies would be reluctant to create new jobs in the US because they would be afraid that Trump would retaliate if the plan on moving them in the future. It is usually the unintended consequences like these that bother me about moves like this.

    Its time for the machines to go away. Not that I don't think paper ballot can be stuffed but I believe it is much harder to stuff physical ballots than electronic ones. I never expected to get a real recount cos any move to overturn the result to create a riot that would make California riots look like a picnic.

    This is true, I think polls can be used and often used to sway public opinion. I know you mentioned Clinton and Obama but the media trumpeting high Trump poll numbers and ignoring high Ron Paul polling can also be an example of such media manipulation.

    Hopefully many people would secretly watch it and agree with the vlogger. During my MRA days, I would roll my eyes at anyone who accused another person of sexism. I thought it was something only SJWs said and I would essential do what I pleaded the members not to do. My thinking went something like this, how can anyone be a sexists when their mom is a woman and their dad a man? :)

    How do you use a poll to inform? the purpose of a poll is to gauge the beliefs of the public. Not to form opinion but to extract what that opinion is.

    I see that sort of behavior with some of my instructors in college, they are always amazed when I score a 100% in one of their exams. But this only happens after the 1st exam. I think most people are prejudge, we all have expectations for every situation we encounter. For me, i think every Christian Bale movie would be fantastic but after watching say "Out of the furnace" I will concede that it wasn't such a great move. I unlike Stefan would not continue to judge the subject with my preconceived ideas after my encounter with it. Teenagers in movies are typically mindlessly horny but Star wars: The force awakens was so well written that they avoided those clique roles. They wrote them out of the movie but Stefan watched it and came out believing that this character was still "mindlessly horny". This is why I have been on his case for a while now. If he gets something as simple as a movie wrong, what do you think he would do to a topic like the crusades or slavery? But keep watching cos it is the women who got the brunt of the unfair criticism in this one. Its amazing that a man who has a daughter is this anti women.

    But why is one method effective and the other not effective? There is very little really difference between what you call legal torture like solitary confinements, playing Nickleback music etc to illegal torture like water boarding. The human body realize that they are experiencing tactile, cognitive, auditory etc stress that can be stopped if they perform some action and they perform said action to the best of their ability for said stress to stop. I really don't know why you think legal torture works while illegal torture doesn't work.

    Before you rolls your eyes and dismiss this thread all together, please hear me out. I have been on a quest to expose Stefan Molyneux as a fraud who lies, distorts statistics, takes quotes out of context and essential views the world in a very biased (anti woman especially even more than anti black) perspective. And I think the reason why it is hard for people to see is that he comes off very professorial, he is very meticulous, very thorough in his analysis, and he is in fact a very good actor with a superb command of the English language. This video below is for anyone who is even a bit nerdish (inner nerd included), loves Star Wars, loves movies, loves a good expose and loves to see Stefan debunked. I actually watched the movie again to see if the video checks out and it does. You don't really need to watch the movie or the Stefan version of the video because the OP video shows relevant clips and only focused on the areas where Stefan got wrong, which happens to be a good chunk of the movie and story line. Some of the highlights is Stefan claiming Star wars promoted war when it doesn't, double standard with women, claiming the black character is behaving in a very horny way etc etc. The video has a 30 minute run time and you do not really need to be knowledge able about Star Wars lore to understand the topic. Enough of me talking, please watch and enjoy the video.

    You know, I was watching a True crime program yesterday, the one they show on HLN channel. One of the stories they showcased was about a woman who was kidnapped by some robbers. After she was captured, they asked her for her debit card PIN number by threatening to shoot the cat which made her to give up the PIN number. Anyway, one robber the daughter of the robber stayed with the victim while the father went to withdraw money from her account. The PIN number turned out to be wrong and he came back angry beat her up, got the right PIN and then killed her. So the detectives got clues that father and daughter were involved and started questioning the robbers for the where about of the woman. Both refused to talk until they threatened the daughter with the death penalty (which is a form of torture) and she started talking. He confessed and ratted her dad out. She gave them motive, the location where they buried her and how she was killed. She got 30 yrs in prison. So in this true story scenario, the original torture failed because it did not go far enough and the second one (plus the police threat) worked because they dangled the potential of death to the captive individual. Failing one time doesn't mean the torture is over especially when time is on the side of the torturer. You just keep trying until they extract the information they want.

    I would like to torture TheTexan to see if I can get him to be serious for just for a day. That is torture that would work and on the right person. I choose waterboarding because just about every human being is terrified about oxygen deprivation. Now I need to find where he lives and if there is water on that planet :)

    I don't think the question is that vague, I consider it more like an out to allow the voter to say yes. The morality, efficiency and legality of it is question for another poll. But for this particular poll, I would have voted with the majority. Btw, I think if you have the right person in custody, the efficiency of torture goes up by a ton.

    I think I would have answered that torture CAN be useful but I would still be against it. But I am still against torture because of the treaties we signed, it may be abused, doesn't work all the time and the fact that I would like some protection for civilians at home and troops abroad if they are captured by the enemy some day. But to deny torture can work in certain situations is just being stupid.

    Its only complicated because the MSM wants us to believe it is. Also the switching you see is usually between FSA <-> Al Nusra <-> ISIS. Not from opposition to govt. I say kill anyone not Syria and use their body to fertilize the soil. For the Syrians that got suckered into fighting for the opposition, work camps can be set up for them to pay their debt to the country. 5- 10 yr sentences depending on the severity of their crimes.
