  1. When I ran the experiment, the guy called one of those real estate outfits that buys homes for cash , liquidated all his assets and set up a rescue center for retired non winning race horses.

  2. Thanks for the clip , it’s been awhile since I’ve seen the movie, funny the scene was more violent than I remember. 

    As I remembered it she says that line to bide her time , shift his focus ? Having just reviewed the scene that sense doesn’t seem as demonstrable but not exactly out of the realm possibility to have been her intent.

    Perhaps my memory of the scene colored the editing lol.


    ps I remember being at the video rental looking at the blurbs on the VHS cassette jackets , picking out the movie night selection (plus another selection in conjunction of my choice, because you know marriage) , when I glanced at the cast and saw the description “Val Kilmer as the ghost of Elvis” I mean , right ?

  3. Ah that trope is in play in the scene from True Romance where the character Alabama fights the mafia hit man. The hitman senses her vulnerability in being female and she uses that apprehension against him.

    In my opinion that scene is one of  the best and in a sense most realistic scenes dramatizing female on male violence.

  4. Do you mean a high percentage of blacks are situated in the underclass, or that the underclass is made up of mostly black people, or both ?

    Sexual predation and substance abuse aren’t  necessarily limited to those in a specific socio-economic strata. Though those behaviors are highly associated with membership in the ‘lower classes’, poor education is likely a more causal factor.

    Okay, let's go with what you got there:

    The the problem is that the court was corrupt or did not follow procedure?

    You describe a decention, as in the procedure was followed and they voted and there was a decention.

    You see at some point, you have to make the case that the system did not follow the rules established. And "the system" is going to have to be "the whole system". In this case you have to show that the court was corrupt in a sense.

    But again, regarding massive fraud, Wisconsin and (let's include) Pennsylvania could have gone to Trump and he still would have lost. It would have to be more massive than that.

    The 'system' in this sense would be the election procedures ; extended mail in ballot, signature/id exemptions, improper chain of custody,  ect, all procedures that fail the test for constitutional legitimacy.

    In Wisconsin one of the justices, during the hearing, referred to Trump as 'your boy the racist'( not verbatim but close), as far as corruption , that statement alone is blatantly prejudicial, especially coming from a justice.

    And as to massive, some of the contested results were in states that the margin of Biden's 'victory' is only a percentage of the amount of questionable votes/ballots. Were any cases thrown out on merit? I think they were all dismissed on procedural findings .

    Not objectively correct. If there is a law that explicitly prohibits the activity, it would be objectively correct.

    Now, if there is no such law and should there be such a law is a different matter.

    The 500 absentee ballot collection sites, "drop boxes" funded by Mark Z, and dispersed through out 72 counties in Wisconsin were illegal. Their use was established by guidance from WEC and not established by the state's legislature. The Wisconsin Supreme Court rejected the challenge and relief sought based on the reasoning that the case fell under 'laches' and reasoning that the relief sought would disenfranchise voters who followed the WEC guidance.

    There may have not been a 'law on the books' that explicitly prohibited the use of drop boxes, but election law isn't based on the idea that all things are legal as long as it is not explicitly prohibited, election law and procedures for conducting elections is established by the state legislature. A dissenting opinion in the case references the difference between establishing law and procedures and the role of the Wisconsin Election Comm in following the state's laws and procedures , as opposed to the idea that the WEC may set procedures.

  7. All in all, what evidence is weak? What court examined the 'evidence'? Courts determined the claims of vote counting malfeasance were too weak to be heard.

    Zuckerberg gave hundreds of millions of dollars to facilitate and enhance the disruption of chain of custody of ballots , and then privately censors the discussion of those facts. Is that because his actions were well intentioned and he only seeks to maintain a non-obnoxious online community ?

    Given that James Lindsay is a left liberal how odd that he would attack his own collectivist determinist Marxist postmodernist etc belief system

    Odder still for a left liberal , he believes there is merit to discuss the irregularities in the election and after three years of not supporting Trump he voted for him this year, being from the left he pulls for the underdog and given that Biden was being pushed by the “state run media” , Trump was the obvious choice.

    Man is he duped !
