They start talking the business part of it at 8 minutes in. Just after 11 minutes the lady states "it's unusual to get a patient above 20 weeks" when speaking of the better viability of later gestational tissue for purposes of harvesting for research purposes. This means that these people come in and are likely "serviced", accordingly.
Again... one of several VIDEOS is posted TWICE in this thread alone. Feel absolutely free to point out where this editing factually or contextually invalidates what has been reported. It's only been more than a week... so.... you know... we understand.
I suppose those pesky suicide rates are too much of a bother to take into account. Ah well. So much for faith in stats analysis. Granted, Panthro is intent on only looking at "developed countries", but we still have yet to delve into why that matters.
Regarding mental illness as a standard for firearms regulation: who determines the standard? It wasn't that long ago that homosexuality was classified as deviant in the DSM for professionals' standards. This particular standard would have been used then to justify disarmament of law-abiding citizens in that time. Regarding the crime itself: the only anomalous parts of this crime is the means and will to publicly execute it as if it were a hollywood film scene. People are shot dead all the time. Westerners seem to be the ones to sensationalize it. Our culture is of a sort that dons the airs of horror when it happens, but gobbles up every ghoulish detail to prompt the networks' continual coverage of it. Far worse atrocities are happening 100-fold all over the planet. In western societies, the motivation for fame (even if it be infamy) rules the rationale of most mindsets. It is reasonable to assume that the feedback loop of media with its boundary-pushing audience has led us to what continues to play out today. Add in factors of the glorification of the victim, passive-aggressive narratives/logic, access to weapons of all kinds, support systems for zero-liability persons crumbling, increased abilities to disconnect from discrepant world-views, advent of mobile social media technologies, etc. and the myriad manifestations of the outliers of society play out in a hyper-connected world as they do today. Do we then acquiesce to a mindset to regulate according to the exception rather than the rule? If one is a perceptual collectivist, then the answer seems to be a resounding "YES". Perception has become a force to become the rule of reality. It is why narratives and propaganda continue to assert their influence over our daily lives as they do (regardless of whether we personally endorse them or not). If the masses buy into the narrative to allow political opportunists to further their own agendas, then this is where the political end-game begins to play out if history is any indicator. The fact that so many people cling to another promise from a class of people that have a long history of deceipt leads me to believe that delusion is now the norm. Hope springs eternal? Poverty continues its reign while the lottery continues to do gangbusters at the expense of the impoverished. Government agencies continue to fully counter whatever purpose they were designed to achieve. The politician no longer holds a temporary and honorable station to defend their constituency, but creates a code of conduct that the political class does not need to abide themselves. Moreover, they do so at the expense of their "constituents". Once the democratic tide of the 51% is allowed to impose its will on the rest of a nation's citizens via political machinations, then tyranny has effectively taken hold to supplant the sanctity of individual rights. Game over. The underlying premise of the American experiment is in its death throes. Atrocities have happened throughout recorded history. This should not grant government the right to disarm legal citizens. Punishing potential crime is Orwellian at its core and takes away the very ability for a citizen to protect their own rights. If people are relying on the restraint of government to respect these rights, then they are delusional.
It's here for your commentary any time you want to take it to task. Then again, you didn't care to comment on it then... why should anything be different now? God forbid you look into the horse's mouth.
It would be awesome for government to act with fiscal discipline as businesses must do in a competitive market. However, when government can grant itself whatever funds it wants as both buyer and spender, then the "free market" is pretty much rigged.
Re-watched the game again last night. For whatever reason, Anderson seemed to be hitting his receivers in stride more often and got the ball out much quicker than anyone else. May have to do some more eval with that for the next game up.
