    It's not really a flip if he is exploring alternate policies that are effectively very similar. A flip on the Muslim issue would be something like Trump coming out and saying we should be taking in millions of middle eastern refugees. A true flip on mass deportations of illegal aliens would be something like expanding services for illegal immigrants and leaving the border open.

    Yes but it's also likely that it's not going to work out so well for the females, either. Do you really think Cersei is long for this world? The Dorne snakes are still useless. Yara has worked pretty hard to become leadership material, though I doubt her people will be happy to give up reaving and raping. If Jon's days are numbered, it's be the fault of Littlefinger and not Sansa, plus I'm not sure the story will resurrect Jon, have completed his backstory, then have Littlefinger poison him or something.

    A lot of the lighter vehicles also happen to be the fuel efficient ones. It's a lot better than tracking people around. Incidentally, if people are going to nitpick about wear and tear on the roads, then the elephant in the room is that they'd have to track me to see which roads I'm on. If I spend a great deal of time on dirt roads or roads that will need very little/no upkeep to be funded by my fuel tax, I'm still taxed the same under all of the proposed systems.

    People who are disabled are discriminated against. All-stop. If you want to advocate for the disabled, then address the root causes of that discrimination. BLM states on their website that black disabled people are more likely to be discriminated against, so they're focused on that. That's not addressing the root cause. People don't ignore the disabled because they're black. LGBT people are discriminated against. All-stop. Whether one thinks, from a moral perspective, that the discrimination should exist is a separate matter. BLM states that black LGBT people are more likely to be discriminated against, so they're focused on that. That's not addressing the root cause. People don't dislike homosexuals based on skin color. So, no, I'm not hurt about being "excluded" but I do think it hurts the effectiveness of a group to protest loudly and pretend to stand for something they're really not. You were the one who said earlier in the thread that BLM was there to address issues of police brutality, etc.. I pointed out that it's not the case per their own website. "Black Lives Matter" is interjecting race into situations where race isn't the underlying problem. You'll find, for instance, that even taking white drug-related incarceration rates, there's a massive disparity between how someone cooking meth in a trailer and some society girl forging prescriptions for medication is treated. You could even go so far as to make them look alike, be the same age, come from two-parent homes, etc., and you will have the same issue. Take a quick browse through crimes against LGBT motivated by sexual orientation, and you will see an awful lot of the victims are not black. Not "a few" or "the exception," but many.

    The main thing is the really high rate of single motherhood.....which, is not necessarily genetic - American blacks had a high rate of marriage and close knit families between the time of the Civil War and the mid 20th century. So what happened to drive up single motherhood? It started with welfare, and then you have the family court system...then add in a heaping pile of the war on drugs. Women can find a guy they are really attracted to and other otherwise sorta ok with who can't really support her, or is in a gang/deals drugs and/or he might not want to commit and they have kids. If he doesn't commit or he goes to jail, she goes on welfare. If he does commit, if she isn't 100% happy with her choice she can be mean and nasty, create marital problems, divorce him, start screwing other guys and have her ex husband pay for her new wild adventures. Without all this welfare/family court/drug war stuff women would be looking primarily for a guy who can support her and help raise her kids. This will signal men to act accordingly if they want to get laid. If the women want to keep their men so they can continue to get support from them financially and otherwise, they will have to be nice and supportive of their husbands.

    Precisely. The gas tax also encourages --- without being an utter asshole about it --- people to consider fuel efficiency when purchasing a vehicle. The consideration may amount to "fuck it; I am getting a muscle car" but it's still in the back of our minds. We went from a small SUV and a Cadillac to two Civics at one point, and the difference was substantial enough to make it a huge consideration going forward.

    You can look up "Snakes at Disney" and go through the photos and videos, btw, and realize that's only a matter of time since people are idiots. When that happens, there will be calls for more signs since Disney definitely knows about them, too. Apparently there HAVE been attacks. Where are you guys on this? CBR = Caribbean Beach Resort

    A toddler wading at the shore at night where there is a steep drop-off is not the same as you walking with one foot on the beach. "Not so with an alligator" is inaccurate. It's highly unusual for alligators to randomly be aggressive and lunge at you on shore with no cover, unless they're hand-fed, which we've already covered over and over again. The video you posted says the same thing. Yes, I'm aware gators can jump and climb --- and do so regardless of signage. I'm the one that posted the video of one climbing a fence, and it's usually safe to assume you'd need an 8+ foot fence designed not to be climbable to keep out critters in this general category (including the aforementioned snakes and turtles). A stone barrier would be preferable, honestly, as I mentioned before. Look! There IS a sign warning of gators! But not snakes... even though it's way more likely you'd be fending off a water moccasin in that area. Disney's ahead of them on that front. Neither of them seem to care about turtles or fire ants. Frankly, it's amazing any of us are alive.

    Actually now I am wondering why the new shore doesn't have the steep drop-off mentioned. They seemed to think warning about the drop-off would keep people out of the water and hence out of the jaws of alligators (or giant snakes, which is still perplexing), but that didn't work. Now they have signs about gators and snakes, but what if someone doesn't realize there's a shelf there and falls into suddenly deep water?

    You're right. Someone should have put up a sign. Want to take a guess as to where this sign is? So my hypothetical, which you seem so interested in discounting, isn't really a hypothetical. This sign was up, and parents ignored it and their toddler was wading right near a steep drop-off. While engaged in what was already an action that endangered their child, another danger came up and snatched him away, likely aided by the deep water. That doesn't make it the parents' fault (maybe they were ready to swoop in if the child lost his footing, and felt they were prepared to guard against the drop-off danger), but for some reason no one seems to be pointing out these signs were there. This is actually a missing piece for me. The story of the body being found yards from shore didn't make sense, but it does now. It's much deeper there, right off shore.

    That was what I was asking. You're really on a name-calling binge tonight, btw. I pointed out that hold harmless agreements don't work the way you're saying they do when there are other factors which tip the scales and make it no longer a natural hazard, but you glossed over that. If I say there are alligators in a lake, there's an assumption they are natural alligators, and not hand-fed alligators, and definitely there's an assumption that there's not a huge area under my control where alligators are being allowed to breed and come over to that lake. If those last two things are happening, though, no sign is going to cover me; I've created an unnatural hazard. I could paste several boring paragraphs of case law, but something tells me you will just roll your eyes, stomp your foot, and admit you didn't read it anyhow.

    Oh. Okay. So Disney having a sign up that there were alligators would have been sufficient to protect them, even if they had an entire area where they were allowing alligators to breed and get into the lagoon, and knowledge of people feeding them. The sign constitutes equal knowledge and implies that the alligators are hand-fed, park-bred, and unafraid of people. I notice you didn't cite anything new, especially pertaining to the "steep drop-off" part of my question.
