  1. More like if the government wants to imprison you for speaking against them in a totalitarian regime or police state, it's much easier for them to do if you have nothing to defend yourself with.
  2. Earlier today the near 60 degree sun angle was still not enough to avoid the shadow of the next door skyscraper. This evening however the sunshine hit the north facing wall that it fails to hit for six months of the year. Beautiful bedroom window view, isn't it?
  3. Something that has happened before in history. Like if Trump really wanted to do an insurrection, that's a strategy he could use. I think guns should be used for self-defense but keep it simple. No guns that can shoot 50 bullets a second while the shooter moves around in a circle. Just simple BB guns, like in Home Alone.
  4. Downtown LA is 71, which is like a mini heat wave this year Meanwhile it is snowing in Shasta Lake.
  5. It's coming! Enjoy the sunshine today (or suffer through it if you like it cold and wet and gloomy)
  6. Hope you're not referring to my posts in This Forum Will Be Deleted
  7. Rare Santa Ana yesterday to take out the trash. Mid 70s here, but Palm Springs was only 69, a full 14 degrees below normal. Downtown L.A. reached 73, cracking the 70 degree mark for only the 2nd time in March.
  8. Did you even look at the article? He provides references for everything he says. Critical race theory: believes racism is present in every aspect of life, every relationship, and every interaction and therefore has its advocates look for it everywhere relies upon “interest convergence” (white people only give black people opportunities and freedoms when it is also in their own interests) and therefore doesn’t trust any attempt to make racism better is against free societies and wants to dismantle them and replace them with something its advocates control only treats race issues as “socially constructed groups,” so there are no individuals in Critical Race Theory believes science, reason, and evidence are a “white” way of knowing and that storytelling and lived experience are a “black” alternative, which hurts everyone, especially black people rejects all potential alternatives, like colorblindness, as forms of racism, making itself the only allowable game in town (which is totalitarian) acts like anyone who disagrees with it must do so for racist and white supremacist reasons, even if those people are black (which is also totalitarian) cannot be satisfied, so it becomes a kind of activist black hole that threatens to destroy everything it is introduced into Point 1, for example: “First, that racism is ordinary, not aberrational—‘normal science,’ the usual way society does business, the common, everyday experience of most people of color in this country,” - page 7, Critical Race Theory: An Introduction. You can go to Amazon and see if the book, Critical Race Theory: An Introduction, is real or not, buy the book and see if he's making up fake quotes or not. How about Point 5? He also gives references, but you can also find this website from Newsweek. https://www.newsweek.com/smithsonian-race-guidelines-rational-thinking-hard-work-are-white-values-1518333 It then criticizes whiteness for using the scientific method For Point 7, some real-life examples Larry Elder, a conservative, was called the "Black face of white supremacy" by one reporter when he ran for governor in the California recall election Biden said to Black people, "If you don't vote for me, you ain't black" In the recent police brutality incident (where all the policemen were black), some reporters on the left blamed white supremacy for they way they reacted Also, the article I referenced is from June 12, 2020 - I checked his Wikipedia article quite a few times over the last 3 years and it was only recently added that he is a conspiracy theorist. But if you look at this Wikipedia article, it does in fact state that critical theory has its roots in Marxism. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_theory In addition to its roots in the first-generation Frankfurt School, critical theory has also been influenced by György Lukács and Antonio Gramsci. Additionally, second-generation Frankfurt School scholars have been influential, notably Jürgen Habermas. In Habermas's work, critical theory transcended its theoretical roots in German idealism and progressed closer to American pragmatism. Concern for social "base and superstructure" is one of the remaining Marxist philosophical concepts in much contemporary critical theory.[7]: 5–8  Bill Maher, a liberal, also thinks the left has gone crazy. Remember he's the same guy who hoped for a recession if it would cause Trump to lose and also advocated single-payer health care. Also it was @SilverFallsAndrew who originally referred me to the New Discourses site, so you must also think he's crazy like me.
  9. It's time to fight against the 3 P's of Colonial Penn commercials with the 3 B's. Boycott, Boycott, and Boycott.
