Re: Bill Kristol and Scott Horton Debate U.S. Interventionism

Bill Kristol and Scott Horton Debate U.S. Interventionism from 4 OCT 2021, via ReasonTV. Scott's response to Krystols red herring about girls in Afghanstan made me LOL, I had the same response when someone IRL asked me a question in a similar vein. Bill's responses were abysmal (especially everythi...

Re: Biden"s First 8 months

And while I don't like COVID state orders, those are mostly state issues. Perhaps in theory, but hardly in practice. The CDC and Fauci get to own this one. I mean the majority of the civil libertarian issues relating to vaccines/COVID are at the state/local/school-district level. Not nationally. I'...

We already cured it. Trump was the cancer, and democratically voting him out of office in a lawful election was the cure.

Re: Chauvin Verdict

There hasn't been any meaningful libertarian presence here for years. There's a name for people who like tax cuts and regulatory cuts, while vociferously defending the police state and militarized borders. It's called being conservative. I'm happy to go with all of that except for the "police state...

1) His own police chief and others stated Chauvin's tactics were not appropriate given the scenario, nor approved generally... This was a key linchpin in the trial IMO. While Dr. Tobin's testimony about cause of death was critically important, the defense bet heavily on a "reasonable officer" argum...

Re: Chauvin Verdict

Yikes, indeed. If the new precedent being set -- at least in MN -- is that a cop can be convicted of murder or manslaughter any time they apply procedurally-approved force to a suspect and the suspect dies in the process, then I have no idea why anybody would choose to become a cop. Way too much ri...

Re: Chauvin Verdict

I wonder what police force members think of the conviction. It's possible that a martyr has just been created. A "there but for the grace of God go I" situation. There's a reason why police have enjoyed relative immunity up to now. They are put into dangerous situations on a regular basis, and bad ...

Re: Chauvin Verdict

Moda, I've noticed a pattern in your posts. You seem to abhor principle. In fact, you regularly mock it. The only principle lefties/communists believe in is "the ends justify the means". The ends are.....whatever they want at that moment. Ergo, they don't have principles and so naturally they don't...

Re: Chauvin Verdict

Certainly race is and continues to be the central theme of the Chauvin trial. But if you're willing to look beyond race, there is an issue at play that is quintessentially Libertarian IMO, that issue being limitations on police powers regardless of race.

The other more over-arching point is how you can UNIQUELY damn “the left” for engaging in tactics that 99% of the time are being used by centrists and conservatives in our criminal justice complex. Remember, I used to be on "the left." A good part of my early work in law was in the state appeals co...

Re: Chauvin Verdict

Well 99 percent of the time, the shoe is on the other foot--i.e., it's the young black men in poverty-stricken neighborhoods who suffer the injustice of a system that has declared them guilty before they ever set foot in a courtroom. So procedural integrity is an issue that should be of vital conce...
