  • Well here let me help you...name calling (like trump calling women dogs, etc) vs had that been a black man he’d have been dead after the second “no” truly don’t compare, obviously not that name calling is ok because it’s all horrible. What lock down has to do with this confuses me, but I get it was just an example. You just seem to hold a lot of hatred towards conflicting opinions. Well it’s ok to be confused especially now with all this crap going on but comparing words and death should not be something that any of us should be confused about.  It’s just hard to figure out which side you support. But hey, that’s what makes America great, huh?

    This probably wasn’t the best thread for my original comment. That is true and I apologize for that. I do hate hypocrisy. It really does bother me. I have one side denying science and not wearing masks while the other side tells me not to see my family while their flying to go visit their family. Sorry for derailing  the thread.

    Don’t apologize because it’s all relevant and it was an example like I said.  And I get hating hypocrisy because I feel the same way but we need to start somewhere, where?, who knows but it all has to change.

    Good example of WP is conservatives using aborted fetus tissue to get them over this virus....and the bullshit that it is no longer a fetus doesn’t matter.  Tell me what to do with my body until you’re thanking god that someone had an abortion to save your life. 
    Wonder if they made sure it was tissue from a white woman?

    The Religious Right folks don't care about things actually making sense.  If they can find the 1% of ground they feel is solid to stand on, they will take it.  I am sure we could come up with 100 ridiculous statements they might use to justify this hypocrisy. 
    Not a White thing though.  A brainwashed thumper thing.

    About 25 doses given/available. Trump, Giuliani, Christie, no blacks yet = white privilege.  Hypocrisy and WP.

    Well, Ben Carson already got it, so we can all let out our breath.

    There are certainly issues with equity in distribution of the monoclonal antibodies, though, as this article lays out. Total of 278,000 doses of this treatment have been allocated so far to states; some states distribute by lottery and some by severity of disease, but it's clear that nowhere near everyone who would benefit will receive it, and too many people who didn't really need it have found a way to access it.

    So we are told.  I don't buy it.  What if someone is inherently attracted to people of all races, creeds and colors, inherently interested in multi-cultural influences in society, and inherently repulsed by people  of all races, creeds and colors who are assholes to oneself?  Why is that not an option?

    sounds like all the protocols were followed, up until the disputed event of the attorney allegedly not letting the police talk to warner. which doesn't really make sense to me. sounds to me like the cops are trying to save a little face here. 

    but if they had cause to search, they had cause. if they didn't, they didn't. doesn't matter if the attorney let them talk to him or not. if they have cause, it's not his call.

    I hear ya.  I started following social and environmental issue as far back as the early to mid 60's.  As the years went by I grew hopeful.  And then tried to remain hopeful.  And then tried clinging to hope.  And now, well, I don't know if things will ever change.  And it absolutely sucks for me to say that. 

    But I still have a glimmer of hope because I still do what makes sense no matter how things turn out.

    There's a whole lot of domestic right wing terrorists in Washington DC enjoying their white privilege right about now. 

    Good thing they weren't caught selling loose cigarettes on Staten Island, that will get you choked to death.
