  1. No way in hell he did what he claims. Pulled some pic off the internet.
  2. You have to prove that the intent was to help his campaign. John Edwards faced similar felony charges and won the case by claiming he paid his mistress off to save his family the embarrassment not to help his campaign. Trump will likely use the same strategy but he has some issues with that approach. I think the Prosecutor may just charge him with a misdemeanor and call it a day. Also not only is it possible to run for President from jail, Trump if convicted wouldn’t even be the first to do it. good run down in this podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/plain-english-with-derek-thompson/id1594471023?i=1000606784311
  3. Really good podcast on this topic. Didn’t realize John Edwards faced very similar charges. Didn’t hear much complaining from Republicans then. Good news for Trump, he was found innocent. Will Trump take the same strategy? https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/plain-english-with-derek-thompson/id1594471023?i=1000606784311
  4. Was that before or after your side shuts down the government over a debt ceiling and pledge to not raise any taxes.
  5. Gee does that apply to saying the charges are a fraud before we know what the charges actually are?
  6. Akula’s data may or may not be skewed in some manner but the data you posted certainly doesn’t refute his claim. It’s completely orthogonal.
  7. The back and forth is pointless but your graph splits suicide and homocide. Both could well be the result of guns as could accidental shootings not ruled a homocide. Not to mention homocide may not be via gun. Apples and oranges.
  8. Again their are known patterns National red flag laws would stop. Sadly Republican are too focused on protecting gun company profits over our children. https://www.cnn.com/2023/03/28/opinions/school-shooting-crumbley-parents-trial-peterson-densley/index.html
  9. Yeah would agree with all of them though I think you need to also have National red flag laws. My father in law being the perfect example. As he aged he got increasingly unstable. Luckily my brother in law is 6’4” 300 and just took his guns away. But even at his worst he could convince anyone he was just fine. And boy was he pissed when my brother in law removed them. Not everyone has a 6’4” relative close by.
  10. True but it has and will continue to make things much worse and impossible to solve problems. We did not have near the degree of gridlock we have now.
  11. If you really want to get to the root cause you can start with Citzens United and the galactically stupid decisions around dark money that have allowed politicians to be bought to a greater degree than ever. There has been no stupider decision by the US Supreme Court than creating a profit incentive to corrupt our government.
  12. I’m not sure you can get to a single root cause. I think it is a combination of a health care system that deals poorly with mental illness, a media that drives polarization and an access to guns that makes it simple to act out. All 3 play a part.
  13. It’s not like these people don’t have a pattern. They rapidly acquire a volume of high capacity weapons and armor. It’s a pattern that could easily be captured and identified if we so desired and closed all the loops on registration and acquisition. Systematically the problem isn’t hard. What is hard is the hold the NRA has on our politicians and judges.
  14. Exactly. Resting on the Sabbath is mentioned at least as much as having homosexual sex. And yet Jesus frequently and intentionally broke the Sabbath laws to emphasize you don’t put laws over people. Christ also never specifically condemn homosexuals but he did repeatedly condemn the Bob’s of this world.
