    So, the left is actually supporting Cheney in this. :D Strange bedfellows indeed. There are some actively calling for her to leave the party and become a democrat, now that she has seen the light.

    Ok, Luntz. Lol. Well, then it's all in how you phrase the question to get the poll results you want, then. "Should the tyrant's pen be able to order how a private business decides which customers to do business with?" Or "Should corporations be prevented from banding together to violate the privacy of American consumers in the name of safety?"

    Poll needs more options. In theory, I wouldn't support a ban - especially, at the federal level. But in reality, the government is so intertwined with business and commerce now. It's hard to imagine a scenario where a "vaccine passport" could remain strictly private. In theory, as a business owner, I should be able to decide to not do business with someone that doesn't live up to whatever parameters I decide. If I want them to provide proof of vaccination, I should be able to tell them to go to a competitor if they don't want to show it to me. But in reality, that's not how it would work. Because it would be in no business's interest to send away their customers over a virus that is not really that harmful, the only way a business would do this is if they could coerce their competitors to do the same. And in today's market, they will leverage government.

    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.

My personal story (pt 1)

I’ve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
