    Good catch! The other weasel phrase is "The NIH isn't funding gain of function research in Wuhan China." Rand held his feet to the fire pretty good. The trick here is that the funding is going to researchers in the United States who then collaborate with their counterparts in China.

    Good point! I thought about that. I could see the police getting involved just on her roommates' report, but they couldn't legally charge him without a statement from the victim that it was rape. I'm not sure why that detail got left out of the news segment. But here's the chilling part. "And while the judge declared the student innocent, he's not out of the woods yet. He says he now has to prove himself to a USC ethics committee that will ultimately decide whether or not he can stay here for the fall semester."

    Obviously more. They were at a frat party. Clearly other people were there and someone could have stumbled upon the scene. I'm not sure why that matters anyway though. At the end of the day we have people engaging in what Working Poor considers immoral behavior. Either that negates their right to claim to be a victim or it doesn't. I was raised not to get drunk in the first place. I could say regarding any woman who got drunk and passed out at a frat party and got raped "Well if you had better morals and not gotten drunk it's unlikely you would have gotten drunk so don't play Ms. Victim." Whenever I hear any of these stories I think of "Wine is a mocker and strong dring is raging and whoever is deceived thereby is not wise." Proverbs 20:1. And considering that most college students are under 21, there was probably some underage drinking which is also illegal. All of them getting drunk was really the first mistake (or "moral failure" if you will) that led to others. There are men who have been convicted of rape who honestly don't remember having sex with the rape victim because they were so drunk and the woman was so drunk she couldn't give consent. Thankfully in this case all parties were sober enough to give consent so it wasn't rape. She just regretted it the next day because it was a turn off to the guy she really wanted to date. Now here's the kicker. Maybe if she and the black man she had accused of rape had gone to a hotel room by themselves and had more "respectable" sex, she still would have had to deal with the same consequences. I have known white men who didn't want to date white women who have had sex with black men. So even in that scenario there was still the possibility of a rape accusation. In the second video I posted, the man (he looks Indian) that was accused of rape was invited by the phony rape victim to her apartment. Still not biblically "moral", but far more socially acceptable these days than drunk group sex in a bathroom. You would be hard pressed to find a man today moral enough to turn down an attractive woman inviting him to her appartment, especially after he had a few drinks. (Again, don't drink.) It is no longer socially acceptable to say to a woman who is a rape victim in those circumstances "Well you had not business going to his apartment in the first place. What did you think was going to happen?"

    You didn't answer the question. I will ask it again. Let's say the story played out exactly the same, but then a third guy game in and said "Let me get some of that" and the girl said "No way" and then he proceded to rape her, would you say she was "playing Ms. Victim?" That is a yes or no question.

    Okay. But you said he was "playing Mr. Victim." Let me ask you this. Let's say the story played out exactly the same, but then a third guy game in and said "Let me get some of that" and the girl said "No way" and then he proceded to rape her, would you say she was "playing Ms. Victim?" I'm asking because I honestly am unsure where you are going with your analysis. Nobody has argued what anybody did was in this situation "moral" but not everything that is immoral is, or should be IMO, a crime. I also think that immoral actions don't take away one's right to claim being a victim of a crime.

    Yes. But can we come up with an objective measure of what is and is not "blatantly justified?" In my mind the shooting of the kid who didn't have a gun in his hand was not "blatantly justified" but in yours it is. On the flip side I feel the shooting of the girl who had the knife was "blatantly justified" but you seemed to feel the opposite. This is not a criticism of you or your positions. Rather pointing out that reasonable people can look at the same set of facts and come to opposite conclusions that don't seem to have a pattern. (Neither of us are calling every shooting justified or unjustified and we're on opposite sides on at least two shootings). I think it's safe to say that neither of us would charge either cop in either shooting I mentioned. (Correct me if I'm wrong). So really this is a question of "In hindsite, could a different response have yielded a better result?" (And please. Let's stay away from the "Don't Monday morning quarterback" argument. All of these cases involve hindsight to some extent or another). This is how I look at it. If time could be rewound to right before the shooting and a different choice had been made, what would be the outcome? Note I'm only going back to right before the shooting for a reason. Yes if Mikia Bryant had been removed from the foster home the incident never would have happened, and if the Adam Toledo had been at home the incident never would have happened. But that's got nothing to do with the cop's decision. If the cop had not shot Mikia, I can't imagine a scenario where the girl in pink didn't get stabbed. Maybe if the cop had shot Mikia's father, who was about to stomp on the head of another girl, the sound of the gunshot might have shocked Mikia into not stabbing and turning to see who got shot. Some (not you) have suggested a "warning shot in the air." But that can be dangerous. (What goes up must come down). Some have suggested a taser. I've seen more than one video of an assailant stabbing a police officer after being tazed. The officers in question had on body armor, but I'm assuming the girl in pink did not. Some have suggested he should have "de-escalated" the situation. But he was distracted by curb stomping dad and when he realized Mikia was also a danger she was in mid swing of the knife. So I'm not seeing a better outcome here. With Adam Toledo there are at least two things on a few second rewind that could have gone differently. The cop could have said "Drop the gun. Don't turn around. Put your hands up." The other thing that could have gone differently is..the cop simply could not have shot. I get it. There was little reaction time and since he didn't see the gun on the ground he assumed it was still in Adam's hand. But it actually wasn't.

    Yep. Here's another case where security cameras saved the falsely accused rapist. Note that the horny drunk girl came on to him and invited him home to her appartment. For those that think the "make sure you ask permission first" movement will necessarily save you from a false accusation. Of course juries have convicted a man of rape before when the undisputed facts were that she invited him to her bedroom, into her bed, and said "no" a split second before penetration and he stopped a split second after. In a case like that even a bodycam can't save you.

    How is that any more immoral than sober sex with one woman in a hotel bathroom that is not your wife? I missed the verse that said "Fornication is okay....as long as you don't get too crazy with it." And couldn't the same thing be said about women who are rape victims but who contributed to the circumstances by, for example, getting drunk and willingly having sex with guys 1 through 3 but then trying to say no to guy #4? I've never been drunk before because I was raised to believe drinking itself is immoral. (I have drunk alcohol so like everyone other than Jesus I have not lived up to my morals.) But I still think people who are drunk can be victims.

    Even when you're reaching across the aisle to undo previous reaching across the aisle? The 1993 Crime Bill was done by a coalition of Bill Clinton and Joe Biden on the left and Newt Gingrich and Bob Dole on the right. It was undone by a coalition of Rand Paul and Donald Trump on the right and Corey Booker and Nancy Pelosi on the left. I only see positives there.

    You realize that's a psy-op right? The idea is to act like you're restricting the vaccine from one group or another in order to get both groups to demand the vaccine. For example, Jimmy Dore complaining that Bill Gates is keeping the vaccine from poor countries and that makes Bill Gates "bad."

    LOL. It was a coalition that began with Rand Paul and leftist Cory Booker and culminated with "the Orange Cheetoh" that got us the first step act. That led to Van Jones going to CPAC and praising conservative republican governors for moving faster on criminal justice reform than anyone else. Then...2020 happened. I don't think praising Trump for doing things that are objectively good is Trump humping. Praising Trump for neoconservative acts like ending the Iran nuclear deal at the time Iran was being instrumental in defeating ISIS is Trump humping in my book. Same for doing mental gymnastics to try to explain why Trump acquiesed to William Barr's cover up of the murder of Jeffrey Epstein. Same for the mental gymnastics that says "It's okay that Trump totally violated the constitution by banning a gun accessory by executive order because the trustworthy conservatives on the Supreme Court, who went along with redefining the word 'sex' in the 1964 Civil Rights Act, will magically do the right thing on this." Same for the mental gymnastics that just ignores Trump supporting an assault weapons ban before and after being elected president. Same for the mental gymnastics that declares that Trump won in 2020 "by the biggest landslide in history" (obvious lie) and gets mad at anyone that says "There's no proof of that happening." Same for the mental gymnastics that tries to explain away Trump saying that maybe you could inject disinfectant to fight COVID-19 and comes up with explanations that even Trump never tried to use. (He was only talking about "light" or he was "talking about hydrogen peroxide" when Trump's later explanation was "I was just joking.") But I get it. Somebody somewhere (I don't know who) called you a Trump humper for saying you like the tax cuts and the EPA rollback. FTR I don't consider you a Trump humper. And I've been falsely called a Trump fan by people I interact with of Farcebook, and people they have told that lie to, simply because I have a problem with Obama bombing a Doctors Without Borders hospital and realize that Obama, according to the PBS documentary Frontline, had kids in cages first. Go figure? That said, I am surprised that you gave Trump credit for "holding the line on the 2nd amendment." How is that exactly? How is bringing the term "red flag law" to the national lexicon "holding the line?" And I already know you don't support his tactics on the bumpfire stock ban or telling Diane Feinstein that we should have an assault weapons ban.

    Ah. That explains it. Someone I know recently showed me a picture of from Twitter or Instagram of Tim Scott with an Aunt Jemima scarf on his head. I was pissed about that because Tim Scott introduced police reform legislation last year and democrats didn't sign on to it for political reasons. I was wondering what happened, other than Tim Scott simply being a black republican, to draw out the self hate. Now I know. I hate how we are so controlled by the social vectors. All sides push their followers to look at things only through one particular angle. It's funny that people who know better think I support Trump just because I will give him credit for the things I think he did right (criminal justice reform, HBCU money, the Platinum Plan, no new wars) and because I criticize Obama for the things he did wrong (kids in cages before Trump, bombing the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afganistan, new wars in Libya and Syria), but on the flip side I've been accused of "Trump Derangement Syndrome" for not buying into the idea that Trump "clearly won 2020 by the largest landslide ever" and realizing that Trump made a jackass of himself talking about injecting disinfectant or saying that he knew COVID would be worse in January but didn't want to cause a panic, or saying that I actually (like Ron Paul) agree that the Obama Iran nuclear deal was better than nothing. I wonder if Tim Scott gets grief from Republicans and Democrats too, or just Democrats? Anyway, good speech. Reminds me of the last major speech by Tennessee state legislator John Dewberry....before he got kicked out of the democratic party after 22 years of service.

    If the Republican Party is to be taken seriously on the federal level, then it behooves it to support a ticket similar to, say, Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Thomas Massie in 2024. Otherwise, it'll be a waste of time.
