  1. I didn't think Brees' comments were that bad, if you listen to the whole thing. He may not fully understand the message/point of kneeling during the anthem, but his reasoning wasn't completely misguided.
  2. Who is #2? Oh wait that is Chase Young? I thought he was #99?
  3. If Trump wins in November, will there be a civil war? I was talking about it in class today, the consensus is that it is going to happen eventually. I feel like what we are seeing now is a mini rebellion. I hope not for the sake of my country and the safety of all my loved ones, but I also realize I am a privileged white person, and sometimes there needs to be violence to create change and give rights and equality back to the oppressed. I also am not advocating violence and think we as a nation have the ability to unite and heal racial wounds (sort of like Biden said). Spreading love, as opposed to hate like our current president does, would be a great start.

    My god. Now this is the type of **** that makes me so angry. What exactly was going through her head? A white woman...does she feel oppressed or discriminated against? There were four police officers in that car. Luckily she used toilet paper instead of a rag, so the Molotov ****tail did not explode. Thank god they caught her, now she is facing federal charges.

    Camping & The Great Outdoors

    I absolutely love nature and the outdoors. Unfortunately I'm not much of a camper, pitching a tent is not in my skill set. I could always learn. Usually I'll go on road trips and stay at a motel somewhere near whatever park I'm visiting. My road trip to Yosemite last year was absolutely amazing. Most beautiful place I think I've ever been, and I've been fortunate to see a lot over the years. Arches National Park in Utah is also very special.
  6. 37, almost 38, no wife no kids. Definitely yearn for both and slightly disappointed it hasn't happened. I've had opportunities over the years, just never did. Been waiting for the right one. I don't think I want to have a kid when I'm 45+ years old, so the clock is ticking! If I don't have kids I'll find peace with it, I'll just travel the world and get some dogs and cats when I return haha. I've always said there are way too many people on this planet, so at least I would feel good not contributing to that.

    To me it is just both sides, the protestors and the police, acting out their id impulses of violence. They all want to fight. Very few people are attending these protests with the intention of having a nice quiet peaceful demonstration. And the cops aren't going there with the intention of keeping everyone behind some imaginary line. They are going there ready to battle. Doesn't matter who "threw the first punch," neither side is going to admit to it. I have seen many people claiming the protests were peaceful until the cops showed up and started firing rubber bullets. Clearly there are many videos out there that prove that (such as the one above). There is no doubt that police are brutalizing civilians for no apparent reason. I'd love to know why. Why do you all think cops do stuff like that? There were also instance of rioters setting fires to cop cars and building. Neither side is exempt. Part of me wishes people would just stay home. I realize that won't change anything either, but all this violence makes me sad and gives me very little hope for humanity. I didn't have much to begin with.

    I wonder what is going through the heads of those police officers? Do they feel they are enforcing justice, or are they truly bloodthirsty violent individuals? Do they relish busting people's heads open? Or are they merely attempting to maintain order? Just some random thoughts going through my head. Like I said in an earlier post, all of this is fascinating and saddening to me at the same time. Human beings are weird. I also don't think you can label or generalize police officers, they are all different.

    I want to post a quote I read on Facebook recently. It is from a young black male who I used to work with at a group home (he was a client). Then the response is from one of this friends, also black, who I don't know personally. I would like to see what you all think and how you interpret it. Is it completely invalid? As a white male, I have no context, but I found it very interesting. I am going to post it without censoring it, hopefully the firewall catches it. If it doesn't then I will edit it. "Stop posting the videos of blacks getting abused. Either shoot back. jump them ****** or let it go. I’m tired of the victim ****. If it was black on black ****** would blow the ***** away. " "Bunch of ******* you ask me will Blast on your own kind in a Heartbeat. Then see this and want to protest. Weirdos"

    The Quarantine Thread

    Somewhat related, I always wonder if there are laws that dictate how often a machine has to payout. For instance, take any random slot machine in Las Vegas. How does anyone know that machine will ever actually hit a jackpot? Or even a large payout? For all anyone knows, none of them are actually set to hit. That's why I consider slot machines the worst possible bet in Vegas that anyone can make - they are all crappy I realize, but you get the point. And I agree with you about poker. I would add sports betting too, although the juice the books charge evens out the odds to their favor. If you are good at picking underdogs on the moneyline you can beat the bookies.

    I'm willing to bet that a large percentage of these rioters setting fires to buildings are caught up in herd mentality. They are more interested in causing chaos and destruction than actual social justice or reforming the system. Obviously I can't speak for them. It would be interesting to interview a person who just set fire to a building and ask them why they did it. There are probably some that couldn't verbalize why they did it, just that they are angry. And then I'm sure there are some that don't particularly care either way, they just feel like causing havoc. Who knows. I was a sociology major so I'm drawn to events like these, they are fascinating and saddening at the same time. And it all started because some asshole cop wanted to kill a black man. But to think, oppression of black people occurs it systemic ways on a daily basis...maybe that is why people are rioting as well, Chauvin killing Floyd was just the spark to the kindling.

    I just realized I read this wrong, you meant someone who has been convicted and imprisoned...only to be proven to be innocent years later by DNA evidence or something. That is indeed tragically unjust. For some reason I thought you meant someone who should have been proven guilty being deemed innocent. I still think unanimous jury decisions are not logical or practical, but whatever.

    Philando Castile....geez I remember that one.

    I think we are agreeing though. In this case I am worried that Chauvin will be let go innocent, when he should be proved guilty, due to a hung jury. All it takes is one juror to not agree for him to be acquitted.
