Comments

All the selections are foam at the mouth left wing extremist, Hate America, criminal lover, crime victim hating, biased, propaganda outlets.

Just for the sake of a little variety and of staying awake, shouldn't you be reading blogs that challenge the standard academic left wing orthodoxy?

SC --

I would respectfully submit that Crime & Consequences does "challenge the standard academic left wing orthodoxy." If it fails to, Kent should make me sit in the corner for falling down on the job.

SC do you copy and paste your comments from one thread to the next? Good lord you are boring.

Bill: One has to have enough fun in academia to compensate for the pay that is a third what one is worth on the open market. That means, one needs an endless diet of the new and intellectually exciting. Academics do themselves an injustice by staying in their comfort zones.

They also serve their students better by presenting both sides, and stimulating debates based on facts, forcing people to learn where to find the facts. The latter are the most persuasive inside and outside the law.

HadEnough: If I am so boring, how come you cannot resist parsing me word for word?

What do you think the public finds the lawyer?

SC if this is the context of your reply: "In grammar and linguistics, parsing is the process by which a person
makes sense of a sentence" yes I do and most of the time you don't. Still boring

HadEnough: Parsing is from Scholasticism. That lawyers do it makes a violation of the Establishment Clause. In the 13th Century, words is all they had. They had not yet figured out, go out in nature and gather facts.

Will the SC Blather never stop? Still boring

HadEnough: You must live a very exciting life. But what could be more stunning than this?

1) The discovery of a parallel civilization, that thinks as people did in 1270 AD, and believes in supernatural doctrines, unchanged from that time. They continue to recruit and to indoctrinate young modern people into their sicko beliefs.

2) Somehow, they took control of our government, and make 99% of the policy decisions. Our elected officials are figureheads making a face saving 1% of the decisions. They renew their control of our government by appointing each other and like minded cult members.

3) They go to all this trouble to carry out a classic business plan, which reaps in $trillion in income a year. And it is the same business plan as the Dominicans had in 1270 AD. "You blasphemed by eating meat on a Friday. You must undergo burning at the stake to redeem your soul. We do have a plea bargain however that should work in preventing the damnation of your eternal soul to the underworld. Hand over your estates as a donation to the Church, and we can get you dispensation from this certain descent into Hell." That sounds awfully familiar.

4) I can see into the future by seeing into the history of Inquisition 1.0. 10,000 priests are beheaded or expelled during the French Revolution. Napoleon conquers Europe and brings the same policy to countries. End of Inquisition 1.0.

What are you doing that is more exciting than the discovery of the above? Riding every roller coaster in the country or something?

SC, Or something would be better that this blather but pulling your chain is more fun. Where do you cut and paste this stuff from, Wikipedia? Still boring!!!!!

My apologies to the professor. This is really a good place for a lay person like me to learn. So..... I'm going to stop this as it is only wasting good space that some of the many commenters on this blog who have something useful to say could be using to further the education of those who are looking for meaningful information.

HadEnough: Feel free to yank my chain. I like it. But it is the lawyer that I love.

You were victimized by a lawyer. Yet, you defend this criminal cult enterprise. That is how good they are at indoctrination. If you have been a crime victim, thank the lawyer. If you bought a product for twice its real value, thank the lawyer for litigation tax. If you did not buy a product because it is no longer available, but would have been still useful, thank the lawyer. If the growth rate of our economy is 3% in a good year, instead of 9% like that of our good Asian friends, thank the lawyer who crushes economic growth by worthless regulation and false litigation.

If you are a government worker doing something of absolutely no value, thank the lawyer for your sinecure. If you came from a broken home, or had your family destroyed, thank the lawyer.

If you cannot make an off color joke at work, without the thought police bearing down, thank the lawyer. If you love PC everywhere you go, thank the lawyer. If you are a feminized male-American, thank the lawyer.

If your mortgage is under water, thank the lawyer.

If our medicine is 20 year behind where it could have been, along with all our technology, thank the vile internal traitor.

Name a social problem, and thank the lawyer.
