The prosecuters determined that it was consensual and that no charges need to be made.

This is what I am talking about when it comes to false accusations. The tables have turned so now the accuser is always right, and even without any sort of proof, the accused get punished, whether it be getting fired from a job, expelled from a school, forced to resign, whatever. The woman is always right. Even if she does not know what she is talking about.

Sexual assault is not okay and should be fully enforced. However, lying about it should also be jailable, and with the systematic witch hunt, it is needed more than ever.


Yeah. The worst part is that not nearly as many people see the guy get cleared after. It's sad we live in a world where mere accusation causes the things it does now and people thrive on it rather than living productive lives. Its something I'm guilty of myself and am trying to "grow out of".

All the nice things I write are ignored; not just here; but everywhere.  The one post mocking me got more likes than all the posts I have made combined.
 
I curse the day I was born...


I personally admire your seeming vast knowledge and historical flavor, thus leading me to the conclusion that your avatar photo is not "a selfie". Besides, this is a simple weather board/forum where peeps who have an over zealous passion for wx go to focus on that topic. With such prevalence of diversity in our culture, there's a pretty good chance I'd have little in common with many in here if I met them on the street. But talking wx here is the common interest that we do have in common. If we stray from that too much, I quickly lose interest. Sounds like your flavor would be very appreciated in perhaps a Poly-sci chat room, or some other site I'm less familiar with.

What a tremendous game. We have a heck of a coach and wonderful man. We will be back. I was so nervous watching the 4th quarter. Our house erupted on the final interception. I wonder what the tv ratings were in Nebraska today?

Neb has a tough schedule next year (Mich, Wisc, ohio st. and Iowa) all on the road. Frost should make them more respectable and much better once he gets "his" QB. Milton was an incredible QB for UCF

And goddamnit Oklahoma. Way to choke away the game and allow UGA to win.

Now I'm told that I create weather models out of whole cloth...as if I have nothing better to do than lie.

Some may say that I am overly sensitive woman; but the truth of the matter is there are times when I genuinely ask myself what I am doing alive.

I never said you were lying. I was just surprised that a German model exists. I'm pretty sure most of us on here weren't aware of it.

These people who insult Trump, even going so far as to use profanity and other invective...be it on Twitter or in the general media...they are playing with fire and are completely oblivious to that fact. 

 

Love him or hate him; he is the president and he is in a position to do great harm to any of them whenever his patience runs out.  He can bring the IRS against them and have their tax returns audited; he can have their licenses revoked; or he could even lodge criminal charges against them under some obscure statute and have them thrown in jail...and he would make certain that they appear before the *right* judge.

 

These reporters and others; they must be afflicted with some type of historical amnesia; for I can think of very few monarchs or other heads of state over the last 6000 years who would have tolerated even 1% of what Trump has listened to.  Execution or life sentences were very common in the not so distant past for such comments about the national leader; lest they forget...

 

If they believe that they are somehow immune or insulated from potential retribution; their degree of delusion is quite profound.

 

If they think that the "1st Amendment" and "free speech" provides them with an impenetrable shield of perpetual impunity; they need to be made aware of the fact that "The Law" is whatever the person who is in running the country says it is.

So you're saying he is a dictator then? You're saying he can attack any US citizen that speaks out against him when his patience runs out? Most of us realize that is what he is trying to be. No person is above the law in THE UNITED STATES, even the president, and he is "learning" that every day. Well I shouldn't say he is learning it as much as he is seeing that everyday.

I did not claim him to be anything...re-read if you are under that misapprehension...I am not even commenting on Trump specifically; but rather anyone  holding the highest office.

 

If you believe that "no one is above the law" and would not utilize a position of awesome power to recompense their foes; you are walking around blind w/o a cane and are thoroughly unacquainted with political history; this is a version of history too well known to merit re-visiting.

 

The only thing that restrains someone in such an office is self-restraint; and those who have offended him had best hope that such restraint is maintained.

Part of it may be that here in 2018; life is about as easy as it has ever been since recorded history commenced; and most Americans...having endured very limited hardships vis a vis their ancestors...have a narrow (though lofty and idealistic) series of perceptions, conceptions, and expectations about life and operate under the misconception that such conditions are static and eternally unchanging; the idea that that their present exalted condition is unbelievably fragile is incomprehensible to them; for it is all they have ever known...

Back to Back years where the Sahara Desert has had snow fall.  Interestingly, it snowed back in 1979 which is the same period the media back then thought the world is heading into Global Cooling chaos.

I don't know too many people who are crapped upon and then smile and call it ice cream.  The concept of "turning the other cheek" has fairly limited historical precedent. 

 

But people believe what they are predisposed to believe and see what they are predisposed to see; I suppose...

Do you know how many people Lincoln had executed; both military and civilian?  The Greatest and Most Celebrated Figure in American History...

 

Or how about the thousands of Japanese-Americans FDR locked away in internment camps; all for the crime of being Japanese?

The most "liberal" president up to that point in time...

 

The one constant throughout time is the very nature of man;  we believe we have evolved; but the belief is false.  The most recent century, the twentieth, was the bloodiest of them all; though the number of murders must be pro-rated for the general increase in population along with the technological advances in the "business of killing".

 

Man is caught in a loop of his own making and he cannot escape it.  He has met the enemy...and it is Him.

But is this anything new? 

 

100 years ago, during the First World War, "suggestions" regarding the rationing of food were not being taken terribly seriously by the rabble.
So what edict does the government promulgate in response to this failure of its subjects to do its will?

 

They come out with, "the restrictions will be voluntary, but any attempted evasion will result in compulsory enforcement"...

 

You have to love it...

 

The 40 year prison sentences that many, many people received at the time for simply circulating pamphlets in opposition to the "will of the government" have been carefully expunged from the history books.

 

This was but one generation removed from a rather infamous opinion delivered in 1893 by a then rather obscure Ohio Circuit Court judge; who determined that "quitting a job without the consent of one's employer" was a criminal offense on the part of the employee.  That obscure judge from the Buckeye State would end up becoming the 27th President of the United States in 1909 and the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court 12 years later; his name, of course, is William H Taft.

 

Solomon was right; there is *nothing* new under the sun!

 

Despite the grave inequity that saturates our existence; life still fumbles along in a reasonably satisfactory self-perceived fashion for most people; as their detachment from reality; carefully aided & abetted by willful ignorance...affords them the luxury of not caring

 

Since nothing lasts forever; the complacency that characterizes the insulated amongst us is fomented by the not entirely incorrect mathematical notion that life is short and by the time some quantum change in the social dynamic that directly impacts them manifests; they will be either old and senile or on to the next life.

 

Even if the changes take place well before then; they stand well armed with the following witticism for the day the ever expanding Police State actually touches their lives:
 

"First they came for the statues; but I did nothing; for I was not a statue."

 

Lol.

Lol.

 

But some will argue, "this is all in the past!"

 

In response, I would ask them to peruse the current incarceration statistics; which show that 1 out of every 100 Americans is currently sitting in a cage...

 

The prison industrial complex is a wonderfully profitable endeavor; and since the prison population has quintupled over the last four decades; the amount of free labor is not in short supply.  Present day America incarcerates more people per capita than the Gulag under Stalin; Mao's China; or even the apartheid regime in South Africa; more than any nation in the history of the world. 

 

Multi-national corporations enter into agreements with state and local correctional facilities; and, by carefully exploiting the little known loophole in the 13th Amendment; have made billions of dollars in the process.

 
Nobody pays much attention, of course, I mean; its all good business. Hey; how's your 401K doin'?

Are there some genuinely sick and depraved people out there who belong in a cage?  Absolutely. 

 

But do between two and three million Americans fall into that category?  I highly doubt it.  Many are in for trivial matters and should not be locked up.

 

For example, one-third of the inmates in South Carolina are incarcerated because they are late on their child support...not because they do not want to pay; but they simply do not have the money.

 

One cannot get blood from a stone; and placing people in what amounts to a debtors prison is a horrific injustice.

Remember that the prison industrial complex is concurrently both a huge success and a huge failure.

 

It is a success because it is the greatest economic boon the world has ever known...providing millions of jobs for lawyers, judges, prison guards, court officers, "therapists", people who build prisons, people who supply prisons, etc.  Billions of dollars are made because of it, and that 13th Amendment loophole..."no slavery or involuntary servitude, except for those duly convicted of a crime" is exploited by corporations to the max.  Companies from Microsoft to Walmart enter into contracts with the prisons; and they get the inmates to labor for a penny an hour; no sick days, no unions, no strikes; all under pain of having parole denied.

 

No need to outsource overseas; this is even a better deal than that!

 

The war on crime concept is a failure...a miserable failure...because crime is pretty much at the same level it has always been...perhaps even higher.

 

Ever wonder why perjury is so seldom prosecuted?  It is seldom prosecuted because it is the life blood of the judicial system.  Remove perjury and 95% of the cases would suddenly disappear off the court calendar...and everyone mentioned above would be out of work.

 

If the tenor of my posts are depressing it is because I am depressed; during my incarnation I have witnessed many things that are difficult to internalize and there are times when I genuinely look forward to my exit from this world.  Of course five seconds subsequent to that exit; I will almost certainly end up in that place where Dante noted the sign hanging above its entrance:

 

"Abandon hope; all ye who enter here!"

 

Not exactly something to look forward to; but I suppose it was my fate.

 

It is my understanding that Cicero was similarly depressed; so at least I am in good company!

Just a reminder that marriage is a bad risk for men in today's feminist society. I've heard lots of horror stories of men not getting access to their children while paying out the nose in child support while living in poverty. I'm sure everyone on the forum knows at least one man who has been shafted big time by this corrupt system.

I do not think too many people would debate the fact that you live in a shadow Matriarchy; and have since about the time LBJ took office. 

 

One thing you can say about me; at least I am not a liar; unlike so many other American Women who cry "patriarchy"!

 

If this were a "patriarchy", I would challenge you to name one law that was passed in the last 50 years solely for the benefit of men....

Oohh...now the news media is touting "Oprah" to be the next president...whose main claim to fame is offering unsolicited advice to couch potatoes...

 

Sounds like a person of presidential timbre to me!

 

I suppose Oprah constitutes a substantial upgrade over the likes of someone of Sarah Palin's ilk; who knew not the difference between North & South Korea; or even what the "Fed" was...

 

If she is qualified to govern the largest state in terms of area; I suppose I am likewise qualified to govern the Universe...

LOL...I said "during my incarnation"...i.e. My lifetime on earth.  Not *incarceration*.  Big difference.

 

My biggest crime thus far is a traffic ticket for speeding through the Minnesota in 2016...

 

Always remember the variation on the ancient proverb:

 

"Verily I tell you, it is far easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a white girl to see the inside of a prison cell"

 

I'm a walking embodiment of that concept...

I re-located to the Black Hills hoping to see some nice snows and it does not snow here.

 

Truly I tell you, that were I given 100 choices and 99 were the Correct, Good Ones and One was the Incorrect Bad One; I would somehow manage to choose the One Bad One.  And believe Me, this goes wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy beyond the weather...

 

It is so sickening it is beyond sickening.  It also adds credence to My Theory that all of this is a Rigged Game; Hell on Earth; designed by Someone In Charge to inflict as much agony as He can until you Cry Uncle...

 

Of course the oceanic depths of feeling that I possess do not avail themselves of insensitivity; and thus when My Father called Me the "pin cushion" his characterization was quite apt...

Anticipating some type of a change in this seemingly never-ending dynamic would be on par with what Samuel Johnson once said of 2nd marriages, "a triumph of hope over experience". 

 

Genuine happiness is as elusive as a butterfly...
