#2862850 The downsides of being rich

Posted by mav1234 on Yesterday, 09:15 AM

Based on a lot of the posts made by many of you idiots, there is not telling what you guys are really capable of.  Getting high....legalizing drugs...anti authority....hate cops....don't believe in education.  Not exactly my definition of fine upstanding citizens.

 

it is very weird to see you say this considering several of us have advanced degree, or actively in postgraduate programs for higher degrees....

I see that MH has really turned over a new leaf.

31 teams, including the Panthers, felt the same way as Dungy


Quite the assumption, don't you think?


#2861724 NYPD kill a man after placing him in a chokehold

Posted by mav1234 on 23 July 2014 - 09:15 AM

I do not have anti-cop beliefs. I respect them and don't think most\all are evil or bad at all (though some PDs are way worse than others) But I feel that investigations can take place before arrests (e.g. in this case talking to the people that would explain what happened). I also understand force is necessary at times. Most of all, I am concerned of a growing separation between officers and the communities they serve. This is something I have heard echoed by many people "on both sides."

#2861693 FBI: violent crime rates drop to historic lows

So I apparently am unique but frankly I enjoyed the discussion of methods and results garnered by them. I haven't had a chance to post as much due to my travels, but I wish I had as there is some literature on changing minds and what arguments are effective if any

Criminals also choose (or are forced) to put themselves at risk by the profession they choose. But their often aggressive behavior is a-okay because you don't like cops.

Gotcha.

Nobody is saying that criminals behavior is okay. But the fug, why would you ever use the argument "well if the law breakers do it why can't the cops?" Because they are supposed to uphold the law. Which includes following it.

But let's take this further.
Are you saying cops get to be judge and jury now, too? How do they know that someone is a criminal when they roll up on a scene like this one? What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Not only are not all crimes equal (nor the threat all criminals pose), not everyone a police officer thinks is committing a crime really is, so aggressive tactics are ridiculous in many cases. But not all crimes are equal or perceived criminals and depending on the threat I understand some usage of force.

I have a great deal of respect for Leos, but I absolutely hold them to a higher standard than fuging criminals.

I don't hate and despise most cops at all, but I do think that certain police departments have isolated the communities they are supposed to serve and created an atmosphere wherein they attempt to maintain order through fear. 

 

edit: and no I don't think every (or even most) pd's are like that at all.  but NYPD goes too far, too often.




#2860802 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by mav1234 on 22 July 2014 - 09:05 AM

So the person at 20 has a more holistic grasp of life then they will at 40? Im not comparing 20-40 yr olds but the individual at dif stages.
And cat I will pull one of your phrases. Im comfortable in saying you are wiser when you are older. Or at least should be.
There is a reason the old phrase youth is wasted on the young.
But dont put words in my mouth that im saying everyone lives and experiences things the same because they don't.
Rarely will your philosophy on life at 20 will be exactly the same at 40. Not saying it can't but rare.

your words were (paraphrased), don't tell me you have a philosophy of life until 40. my comment was directly responding to that statement. I am not saying 20 year olds on average or much at all will have a better grasp on life than a 40 year old.  but some def. would. 

 

What I am saying though is that age is a poor thing to use to base comments on people's experiences.

 

rarely would your philosophy on life be the same at 40 as 50 or 80.  it's irrelevant if it changes.  your attitude was condescending and dismissive of people under 40 dude, that's all.

 

 

Its a quote from my dad and I just clarified it.
That's a far cry from you CAN'T have a philosophy on life.
So mav and cat. Will you know or have seen more in the next 20 yrs or you have peaked on all things of the universe?

It was a quote from your father you explicitly stated you agree with.
 
Your father's quote is a far cry from you can't have a philosophy, but it is condescending and dismissive.
 
Now that you have walked back from the quote once you were called on it, tho, I think we can be in agreement that the more experience one has in life the more their world view, outlook, and philosophy is shaped.

Go back and read my other posts.
OF COURSE PEOPLE EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT THINGS. IM NOT SAYING THEY DONT.
And yes age difference can be just one of many factors in perspectives. I think you guys just want to argue over something that wasn't said.

uh no, we're arguing with you because you made a pretty absolute statement in relation to age:

 

 

I like what my dad use to say. Dont tell me you have a philosophy on life until you are 40.
And it wasn't just towards me. I think he was right.

#2860566 Malaysian airlines lost contact with another Jet

Posted by mav1234 on 22 July 2014 - 12:48 AM

I'm sure it was a mistake. My issue with Russia's involvement isn't about placing blame for deliberately shooting the airliner down.. The issue is more the recklessness of giving such firepower to a group of rebels embroiled in a civil war

#2860516 Hottest June ever

Posted by mav1234 on 21 July 2014 - 11:49 PM

George Washington's diary.

He said it was hot, damn hot. :)


I seriously did read a biography of his life in which he said that the summer of (I think it was 1763) was the hottest he could ever remember. And I was pointing out in a sarcastic way that that its really hard to say that a certain year is the hottest ever when at best, our recordings only go back a couple of centuries, and then the temps are only recorded in a few areas.

I am not a global climate change denier but I don't think statements like "this is the hottest summer on record" really help the debate.


Well the news story specifically says "on record." I don't see how this matters to the "debate" as the "debate" is on mean temperature increases. But as someone that is interested in the weather in a general sense and was experiencing pretty hot weather in MA, I appreciate knowing I wasn't crazy thinking it was extra hot. I don't see an issue with this so long as you're an educated consumer of information... it is useful to know this kind of stuff, even with caveats. The period covered is also that which is under the most scrutiny for evidence of anthropogenic warming. But is it strong support for climate change? Not particularly, tho the ocean temperature increases concern me.

I think taking this as some strong example of climate change is retarded. But this isn't really damaging to the dialogue between scientists and the public. I dislike using monthly records as examples myself, but overall find the story of interest as it relates to my personal experiences last month.

He always acted respectfully in public and played on a terrible team in 2010 and was immediately replaced, yet never complained..  Wish him nothing but the best.

well frankly he doesn't look that out of control in the video, he looks pissed off.  maybe if they'd taken some time to assess the situation, the outcome would have been different.
