    All of which can be encompassed in a simple, two-word phrase favored by the "woke" - and that phrase is "lived experience." "Lived experience" is the distilled essence of "woke" arbitrariness. In fact, I'm going to make this the subject of my next post in the Critical Theory thread. And here it is: The Poverty of "Lived Experiences" A sample:

    https://twitter.com/ConceptualJames/status/1302755699424931840 1302755699424931840 The Poverty of "Lived Experiences" https://newdiscourses.com/2020/10/poverty-lived-experiences/ I. Karamozov (04 October 2020) Political dissidents who get into arguments with Woke Folk over the exact nature of “systems of oppression” will inevitably find themselves confronted by rhetoric of a sort that often catches them off guard. This rhetoric is, by design, meant to paint political dissidents as myopic stooges who are unwilling to “listen to the Lived Experiences of marginalized people,” thus making them unwittingly complicit in systems of oppression. In this essay, we will explore the concept of “Lived Experiences” (capitalized and scare-quoted) as understood by Woke Folk, and why this conceptualization is fundamentally deficient. Political dissidents would be well advised to consider the arguments of this essay with care, as “Lived Experiences” are foundational to Woke Ideology; indeed, dismantling Woke notions of “Lived Experiences” may be the single most effective means of preserving the integrity of liberal democratic institutions from Woke encroachment. Consequently, a firm understanding of the topic and of how to address it when engaging with Woke ideology will be the focus of this essay. Before we can address what the concept of “Lived Experiences” entails, however, we must address its function. As was mentioned in an earlier essay, the empirical claims that are made by Woke Folk seldom survive evidential and analytical scrutiny. This is a problem for ideas in a culture which values such things as evidence and reasoned argument (as opposed to arguments from authority and moral blackmail.) Evidence and reasoned argument are the currency with which ideas earn their right to be taken seriously in liberal democracies. The tenets of Woke ideology, which are in frequent conflict with both, must therefore somehow be made adaptable to an environment which is hostile to dogmatic proclamations of unsubstantiated certainty, and the concept of “Lived Experiences” is the mechanism intended to achieve this.

    Garrison didn't make an "argument," he made a cartoon - a cartoon contrasting Biden's statement about Antifa with the shooting in Denver. The tattoo wasn't being presented as "evidence" of anything. Garrison's implication of Antifa was made via the label on the gun, not via the tattoo. Except for the tattoo, there is nothing in the cartoon that indicates what (if any) actual person or event is being represented. The purpose of the tattoo is to ground the representation in the Denver shooting by Dolloff. The point of the cartoon is that Dolloff (as identified by the tattoo) is Antifa (as alleged by the big red "ANTIFA" label on the gun) - and that Antifa is thus not "just an idea."

    Not only would it be a bad precedent, but it would also be unconstitutional. Any POTUS who tried this would be violating the Constitution. Which means he would have to have himself thrown into Gitmo. Which, of course, no POTUS would actually do. So it wouldn't even work in theory, let alone in reality ...

    Ordered by the President to do what? Summarily toss people into black holes like Gitmo, just because POTUS says so? I don't know what you think about Trump, but do you seriously want a President Biden (or President Harris) to have that kind of power? Do you really imagine that is supposed to be some kind of improvement?

    Beautiful day in store. Sunny and a high of 78. I didn't get a chance to talk to my boss about the lazy Food and Beverage director because I went in to work to find our toilets were completely backed up and sewage was coming up out of the floor drains. The issue didn't get resolved until about 7pm and then I cleaned the bathrooms. I was literally up to my ankles in shit for hours yesterday. And, to top it off, one of the hoes is having a mental breakdown and kept coming up to me asking me dumb shit. She just walked up and interrupted the plumber while he was explaining the shituation to me. And y'all are gonna love this bit...the plumbers told me the problem was on the city side and I should call them because it's their responsibility. I called and they sent out a complete moron. He asked me to show him the problem. I did and then he asked me why the sewage was backing up and I said, probably a clog but I'm no plumber (in my bitchiest tone because I was irritated and he was stupid) and he responded stating he wasn't a plumber, either. :facepalming: He went outside and poked around for a bit and told me he couldn't do anything. We ended up calling the real plumbers back and getting it fixed. It was a rough day. I ended up waking up to a crazy dream. In my dream I was on the patio at work talking to my bosses and I feel a tickling in my nose that starts driving me so crazy I end up picking it. I was trying not to but it was driving me crazy. Turns out I fish a giant booger out of my nose and then I toss it on the table right in front of everyone BUT when I went to inspect it on the table, it wasn't a booger at all. It was a damn squid or octopus I didn't get a good look at it and everyone starts telling me I need to go to the doctor but I thought we should run a calamari special. Then I woke up. I was woke as fuck, lol. That's the craziest dream I've had in a long time. I tried googling it's meaning (surely my subconscious was trying to get my attention) but there was nothing about pulling a squid or octopus out of your nose. One website suggested I hang a dream catcher. IDK, might work.

    Compton rolls out largest 2-year guaranteed income program amid racial injustice reckoning https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/compton-2-year-guaranteed-income-program-racial-injustice Hundreds of people living in the California city of Compton, including those out of prison and illegal immigrants, will be eligible to receive guaranteed income as part of a new pilot program over the next two years. Compton Mayor Aja Brown announced Monday that The Compton Pledge, a landmark guaranteed income initiative, will distribute recurring, direct cash relief to approximately 800 low-income residents for two years, starting in late 2020. It’s the largest city-led guaranteed income program in the U.S. to date and comes amid a nationwide reckoning on racial injustice and inequality. According to the city, all funds are being raised privately in partnership with the Jain Family Institute, an applied research group, and the Fund for Guaranteed Income, a registered public charity launched to steward guaranteed income as a path to racial justice.

    But that is not an appeal. There are no more appeals to be had on this case. SCOTUS is the end of the line. This particular case *has* been "settled." A decision has been made, and regardless of whether it is regarded as "precedent-setting," courts are typically quite reluctant to reverse themselves - especially SCOTUS, and especially especially when the decision for which reversal might be considered was made only a short time before. Of course this ruling will have an impact on that. Courts don't just ignore their own prior decisions as if they had never happened. Especially not on such a short time scale.

    Still not seeing it. The system is not going to hold the system accountable. If, as you stated things earlier, "the justice system absolutely refuses to even arrest and charge them for anything regardless of the evidence," then by what means shall "Gitmo be used for politicians who violate the Constitution" ... ? If "the justice system absolutely refuses to even arrest and charge them for anything regardless of the evidence," then how does the following ever happen?

    I expect there will be plenty of shenanigans - oops, sorry, I mean *alleged* shenanigans - that may afford SCOTUS multiple opportunities to revisit this decision. But those won't come up until after the raging dumpster fire - oops, sorry, I mean *election* - by which time ACB should have been seated. Then we shall see what we shall see ...

    I don't know what is wrong with the rep system that you get three neg reps and I'm only allowed to give you one. But Hillary didn't lie about her client nor did she say he was guilty of first degree rape. She said that was the charge. I did watch it and you lied. Further he didn't "get off." He plead guilty to a lesser charge. What Hillary said was "I got him off WITH TIME SERVED." He's still on the sex abuse registry the rest of his life. You have not identified a single legitimate ethical lapse in anything Hillary did or said in that video.
