It is amazing how uneducated our educated class is.  Very sad that the longer you stay in school the less you know about certain parts of life, human nature, economics and how the world works.

It's amazing how close a 'bad area' can be to the financial district and the government buildings.  Everyone (almost everyone) seems to know and no one seems to care or do anything about it.  cf. Mayor Lightbrain.

This young lady knew no better.  She was saying things, studying things and writing things that pleased her peers and the department and institution where she wished to get an advanced degree.  That seems admirable - even if it was all wrong.  Going there was perhaps an attempt to learn and get the story right.  I'll bet she never read an opposing view, not one article by Heather MacDonald for example taking down the race based false claims of the Left with hard facts.

This young woman studied crime from the point of view of us being too hard on the offenders.  But simple math tells you that when the shootings and the murder rates go up 80% in a year, we aren't being too hard on perps; we are making life awful for victims, who also mostly black, though color shouldn't matter.

I was hit by a car and left to die along the side of the road in my youth.  Ouch, but the first part of it was accidental, and I lived.  Stitched up in a hospital after a knife-based attempted mugging on another occasion. Dying from the intentional knife stabbing through your neck must really suck.  I wish she were here to tell others in "criminology' how bad that is and how hard we should try to stop it.

Why is child rape /abuse

Cognitive Dissonance of the Left - Texas Democrats

Hat tip Instapundit.

Democratic legislators fled the state of Texas to prevent the large legislative majority from enacting a voting reform bill. They flew to Washington, D.C., where they rallied for ending the filibuster so that Democrats’ slim majority can pass a voting ‘reform’ bill.

Cognitive Dissonance of the Left, To be a Lefty ...
« Reply #1609 on: August 09, 2021, 10:40:47 AM »
"To be a lefty is to believe that the Constitution is a living document that changes with the times, but a poem on a statue binds immigration policy forever.”   - Glenn Reynolds

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/271762/

Statue of Liberty:
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

That's binding, forever.  All poor, all tired, all masses, no matter the numbers, the issues, the problems, even the pandemic.  Are you nuts?

Article Five of the Constitution:
"two thirds of both houses ...ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states..."

That's not binding.  Just change any meaning to fit your desired outcome.

"...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."   'Shall not' actually means 'shall' if you are Left in our time.  No amendment is needed because, um, well because it wouldn't pass 2/3 House, 2/3 Senate or in 38 states.

The right to kill unborn, anytime, for no reason or any reason, try passing THAT in 38 states, yet the Left thinks it's a constitutional right.

raging jewish democrat partisanship

reminds me of a nasty disgusting call my sister got about my nephew who works with Josh Hawley

from a "friend" from her previous home town
who just had to open his big mouth about how Hawley "has blood on his hands" after 1/6/21

I said I bet anything this person was jewish - she said yes.

The Jewish democrats are some of the most nasty hypocritical narcissistic virtue signalers

Thank you all for listening
now that I got this off my chest......

To clarify I am not anti jewish but anti the democrat party religion of my fellow jews

hat tip to Doug

"This is not an apologia for the tragic and chaotic scenes that have been unfolding in Kabul. Rather, it is a reality check. If there is a graceful, orderly way to abandon involvement in a brutal, unresolved civil war on the other side of the world, please cite historical precedents. I can’t find them."

The Soviets left in an orderly way, and the government lasted four years after they left, if I recall correctly.

I don't think it warrants front page international news
whenever it happens

and my point about black on black crime being ignored
in contrast to show the media bias is relevant.

Sorry to nitpick, but it was not "international news".  It was front page news of a shooting under color of law in LA County in LA County's largest newspaper.

"black on black crime being ignored"   

Race matters when it fits the narrative and fuels the agenda.  In LA maybe it's Mexican gangs
https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/intelligence-report/2007/latino-gang-members-southern-california-are-terrorizing-and-killing-blacks
Also MS-13:  https://nypost.com/2021/08/26/members-of-ms-13-subset-charged-in-brutal-los-angeles-murders/

Here is an LAT attempt to acknowledge homicide victims, never called black on black or gang on gang crime:
https://homicide.latimes.com/

This is public data from police reports.  Not one reporter was assigned to hundreds and thousands of crimes.  Who was killed, why, over what, how did the investigation go?  Was anyone charged, anyone convicted?  A deplorable lack of curiosity.

In gang related murders, the victim is also often a murderer or criminal too but no one sorts that out.

It's getting worse:

TAX THE RICH!

https://www.vice.com/en/article/7kvgxe/were-going-to-make-the-rich-pay-joe-manchin-tells-protesters-from-his-yacht

 of course there will be trillion dollar bill
 any is too much

So how high will Joe go because we know there will be a giant spending bill

like my sister advised me some yrs ago
it is always the same mantra

when Dems
many who pay zero income tax
are asked how do we pay for these gigantic bills

"tax the rich " is ALWAYS the (me dumb ass response)

I am thinking since printing endless money is no problem
why tax anyone ?

just print more money.

If anyone tried this with leftist dems, they'd be shot in the neck by Capitol Police or incarcerated without trial for years.

Cognitive Dissonance of the Left, 3.5 Trillion costs nothing
« Reply #1628 on: October 12, 2021, 10:35:08 AM »
https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/why-biden-says-his-plan-costs-nothing-why-he-s-n1280158

Biden says his plan costs nothing.

MSNBC writes, "why he's right".

Doug:  Speechless.

If this needs explaining, we already lost you.

If you added a $1 cost to a gallon of gasoline, and you paid that additional cost, was the net cost zero.  Nothing.  Nada?
 Yes, according to Leftist lying anti-math.

Is a loss of millions of jobs zero net cost?

https://www.westernjournal.com/experts-many-jobs-bidens-agenda-will-kill/

I can't find it but radio had a montage of Dems saying zero cost.

When have they gone too far with the lie, cheat, steal approach to governing?

Hey, is St Paul part of Murderapolis?

I heard a mention of that incident but no follow-up. Black on black crime is swept under the table.  Why is it not racist to kill a black victim - no matter who you are?  I thought, "black.lives.matter".  Black lives sometimes matter??
