  1. yardmeat replied to the thread More cops killed this year than any other year.

    The OP claims that there were more cops killed this year than any other year. That isn't a matter of opinion. It isn't "neither true nor false." It is outright false. Yet,...

    If you are having trouble keeping up, let me know where you are getting lost, but it is pretty easy to follow. You can start with the fact that the OP is objectively false.

    Slavery is the ultimate cheap labor, even with the "watching."

    The South tried to negotiate just that. The North refused. The total "history" you are pushing is just fringe-right, anti-history propaganda. And the only slave states in the...

    Not what I said. I was talking about the causes of secession, which you have, for years, refused to address. The only economic issue that appears in the declarations of causes...

    The FBI also says that more officers have been murdered by right wing extremists than by left wing extremists. Trying to pin this on anyone who criticizes the police is just...

    I'd need actual evidence before attributing a cause. I mean, just looking at a graph, that is a GIGANTIC leap to jump to a conclusion. And a quick search shows that the whole...

    And this has what to do with Biden? And how do you substantiate your/the OPs claim that these are record highs? You are ONLY LOOKING AT 3 YEARS.

    Crime is surging? So far this just looks like a minor uptick in the decline in violent crime that has been going on since the early 90s....

    The PDF does not say that this is a record high. It only mentions 2 other years. The previous year only had 2 cop shootings over this one. Hardly statistically significant....

    Thank you for acknowledging that this has nothing to do with caring about the lives of cops.

    I'll need a better source than this propagandist rag. Meanwhile, far more police have died of COVID than of shootings. Might want to start caring about them, too, assuming your...

    Secession. Not succession. And yes, it was the cause. Again, the people who made the decision to secede said so. You are claiming you know more than they did, about their own...

    So . . . kinda like poor vaccine and mask choices. That's actually a decent comparison, except for the fact that heart disease isn't contagious.

    Yeah, basic health precautions are totally the same thing as genocide. The right to one's religion is the same thing as the right to infect people with a disease.

    It costs more to both watch them and pay them. Slavery was the south's single greatest economic interest. And their international sales didn't hurt for it until the Civil War.

  29. yardmeat liked notme's post in the thread All 3 men guilty of murder in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery.

    It's by definition illegal to commit a crime, and so all actions that are part of something that is illegal are also illegal. There was no legal reason to chase Arbery. An...

    Sure thing. And **** Trump, too. We shouldn't tolerate attempts from him to steal elections. It has nothing to do with his skin color.
