This doesn’t speak to the LBGTQ issue at all, but the following statement is extremely subjective. And for the record, I’ve never sought out, purchased, or read any books whatsoever on Donald Trump. It isn’t worth my time.

In the long run the more radical these guys get the more it is gonna solidify trans rights
when you start going this way you start alienating people

they will pose trouble along the way but in 20 years as long as the good fight is fought, we'll be good.

I admittedly haven’t read anything about the shooter, but I did read that LinkedIn has pronouns for everyone’s profile

also, pronouns on an online profile prove absolutely nothing when it comes to personal politics

A Democrat from modern-day Alabama? Not likely.

Refusing to sell guns to Democrats would help address 1/3 to 1/2 of the problem by volume. Maybe it's not such a stupid idea?

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/05/08/opinion/timothy-mcveigh-mass-shootings.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share&referringSource=articleShare

Quote :
" Timothy McVeigh’s Dreams Are Coming True"


Quote :
" When it came to guns,” writes Jeffrey Toobin in “Homegrown,” his compelling new book about the Oklahoma City attack, “McVeigh did more than simply advocate for his own right to own and use firearms; he joined an ascendant political crusade, which grew more extreme over the course of his lifetime and beyond.”

Reading Toobin’s book, it’s startling to realize how much McVeigh’s cause has advanced in the decades since his 2001 execution. McVeigh, who was a member of the K.K.K. and harbored a deep resentment of women, hoped that blowing up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building would inspire an army of followers to make war on the government. This didn’t happen immediately, although, as the historian Kathleen Belew has written, there was a wave of militia and white supremacist violence in the bombing’s aftermath. But today, an often-inchoate movement of people who share many of McVeigh’s views is waging what increasingly looks like a low-level insurgency against the rest of us.

Not all mass shootings are ideologically motivated — far from it. But when there is an ideology involved, it’s usually a far-right one. “All the extremist-related murders in 2022 were committed by right-wing extremists of various kinds,” said a February report from the Anti-Defamation League. Sixty percent of these deaths came from two mass shootings, in Buffalo and Colorado Springs."


Quote :
" As it happens, in the hours after the Oklahoma City bombing, before the authorities knew who McVeigh was, he was pulled over during a routine traffic stop and then arrested for carrying a gun without a permit. In 2019, however, Oklahoma legalized permitless carry. Under the new law, McVeigh would have been let go."

We can't kill sex offenders. But the criteria for capital punishment is a bit vague. Kill 3 people? Life in prison. Kill one cop? Death row for you sir/ma'am.

If we're going to let the state kill people, we need to come up with a clear-cut definition of what constitutes a death-sentence worthy crime.

Sex offenders...I don't really know what to do with them. It's been proven time and time again that they can't be reformed.

I don't really care one way or the other. Obviously it doesn't deter anyone from committing crimes for which the death penalty is an option.

My argument is that if it's going to be on the books, to make it consistent, and make it quick. Keeping people on death row for 10, 15 years is cruel and unusual punishment in and of itself.

We really need prison reform. The current way of doing things just isn't working. The jails are overcrowded and underfunded. The employees are underpaid and overworked. The offenders that are let out early keep coming back.

I just don't know.

^It's been shown that that's pretty much by design and the intent. Yes, reform is needed.

Prison typically makes inmates better criminals (and more violent)

I agree, I don't know about the stats relating to this. But logically it makes sense
depending on where you go, you get exposed to many more criminals, make more... connections? I suppose
it is just a concentrated center of criminals after all

Maybe the phrasing "making them better criminals" is a bit off.

If you take someone who's had a possession charge or some type of manslaughter and send them to prison with hardcore criminals, certainly they're going to have to change to adapt. If any reform were possible, it would probably get thrown out the window.

" Jan. 6 Suspect Arrested After Running Toward Obama’s House

Taylor Taranto, who'd been identified as one of the mob that attacked the U.S. Capitol over the 2020 election results, was arrested near the Obamas' D.C. home.

A man who has previously been identified as a participant in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection was arrested on Thursday near former President Barack Obama’s house in Washington, D.C., multiple news outlets reported.

The suspect, Taylor Taranto, was seen by the U.S. Secret Service blocks away from the Obamas’ house, according to CBS News. Taranto, 37, ran toward the Obamas’ house with weapons and was then apprehended. He has reportedly been charged as a fugitive from justice.

According to ABC News, a search of Taranto’s van yielded several guns and materials that could be used to create a Molotov cocktail. Police said in a statement that there was no ongoing threat to the community."

I don't get it. How long does it take to "run" several blocks? Were cops staking him out and watching him and were fine as long as he didn't run, but when he started running they nabbed him?

I guess it was Secret Service detail. Still seems like an odd description / framing of the incident.

I’ve read like 5 different articles the past few weeks of Black ppl losing their jobs because mobs of white people panicking about them pushing wokeness. The president of TAMU has to resign for hiring a black person.

Gop leaders rejoice at this. This combined with the Supreme Court ruling undermining protected classes, and the ruling undermining affirmative action seems like it will create a cap on how high a high achieving African American can get promoted

I’m not convinced that the average white person not actively rooting for this outcome but still tacitly tolerating it isn’t just clearing the path for vicious racists like Stephen miller to push it further.
