Maybe with all the cameras and electronic transactions and such, this stuff just gets harder to hide as we go forward, which is good.

Not that I'd argue that prostitution and rape of minors is a good thing but....the loss of anonymity seems like it will be bad overall. Less freedom of expression, freedom of association, people less willing to speak out and express opposing views....

Better to let 10 guilty men go free and all that?

Epstein taught at the Dalton School, where he possibly assaulted his students. Interesting fact about Dalton:

"Tuition for 2019-20 in Grades K-12 is $51,350, which is among the lowest of our peer schools. At Dalton, the full cost of books, computers/tablets and lunch is included in the annual tuition."

That’s not really Occam’s razor, the best explanation being the simplest one. I don’t think anyone has wanted to put up with abuse, going back to caveman times.
In reference to to previous posts on this thread, close enough. ;)

What's certain is that the high-IQ, low-insight savants bent on a global technocracy are moving forward. The only viable defense to this, it appears, is for the surveilled to turn their technology against them. It's a less than satisfactory solution, but if 8x10 glossies of Bezos' private parts are what it takes to slow them down, then so be it.

Another one you just knew was coming. It took a while but they finally found a clip in their archives from 1992....

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/ta ... y-n1030686
The footage shows two wealthy men laughing and pointing as they appear to discuss young women dancing at a party.
Talk about factual reporting. How do they know those two men were wealthy and why does that matter? You can't hear what they are saying but they "appear" to be discussing "young" women. I saw young women in that clip depending on what you mean by "young". I think I know what they mean to infer by the word "young" but I don't see any that appear under-age.

This might sound crazy, but I think NFL cheerleaders are hot, too.

We should all be cheering for that black dude in the middle, of course.

There must be a name for those who don't clap loud enough but I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the names they come up for what's wrong with people like me.
