    Police - a thin blue line, a wad of cash and scary guns

    You are correct. This episode is emblematic of everything that is wrong with American police training. They use the public to serve themselves and brag “No LEOs harmed” as though the public does not matter.

    Synonym for marksman or horseman that starts with 'm'

    I don’t see a record of anything like the Texas Rangers in Florida history.

    Where all the planets they visited turn out to be in the American/Canadian Pacific Northwest?

    What was wrong with the 2004 election?

    I don’t understand the context of your question. Are you implying Vindman is violating his duty under the Constitution by testifying? Loyalty to a particular President is very different from loyalty to the Constitution.

    Disliking the outcome of an election is not the same as not accepting it. The former is represented by political opposition. The latter by militant resistance to a normal transfer of power. The latter is much much worse than the former.

    Shouldn’t a Gun Control/Gun violence discussion be in another thread?

    The Mandalorian (Spoiler Thread)

    Are they going for a “Lone Wolf and Cub” angle?

    Literature Of Old: Plutarch, Appian, Herodotus

    I reading the Landmark “Campaigns of Alexander” by Arrian. It’s really quite interesting so far.

    That isn’t what the article said.

    U.S. Politics: Attaquer son cul orange!

    I don’t want it to be “the only game in town”. But I also don’t wanted private exploration banned in favor of only State sponsored space exploration.

    That too.

    U.S. Politics: Attaquer son cul orange!

    I don’t disagree. But impeding those who attempt to help seems a poor idea as well. You appear, please correct me if I’m wrong, to want to impede private space exploration.

    That’s fair. Without Musk, can we say with confidence that SpaceX would still exist? This whole discussion seems to be a derivation of the “great person” idea of history about which there has always been a great deal of debate.

    How can we know what they would have done without Government pressure? These companies don’t exist in a black box where Government and Public pressure don’t exist. Regardless here’s an article from 10/2018 (cnn) listing private actors fighting climate change: https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/09/business/climate-change-companies/index.html I still don’t think relying upon the State to push space exploration is a reasonable or efficient long term strategy. SpaceX has done much more than NASA has in decades (plural) in under a decade. That’s not a bad thing.

    U.S. Politics: Attaquer son cul orange!

    I’m not sure I understand your point. Private enterprises can and should take a hand in curbing human impacts on Climate Change even if Governments are unwilling to take such actions. Is the fact that some private actors will act responsibly even without coercion from the State a bad thing? The State is not the only mechanism by with things can change.

    Government’s abandon exploration efforts. See, the Apollo program. Individuals have dreams. Elected governments move on when the public gets bored. I have always thought we needed Private enterprise to get to space and stay there.

    Daylight savings time sucks spring 2017!!!

    Yes. This weekend is the annual bout of torture we inflict upon ourselves in order to do nothing but screw up our sleep patterns, increases heart problems, and cause more wrecks than normal on our highways. http://www.cbsnews.com/media/daylight-saving-time-affects-your-health/5/ http://www.businessinsider.com/daylight-savings-time-bad-health-effects-sleep-2016-3 DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME SUCKS, HAS SUCKED, AND CONTINUES TO SUCK!!!!
