New summary, let's try the short version.

I may not be "a great man", but I like to think I'm a good one. I'm not someone who goes out seeking adventures by myself just for the heck of it, but I have never shirked the chance either. (Please note the adventurous fedora and the long coat, the sure signs of a reckless and bold spirit, what more need I say?)

My daughter comes first, but she knows Dad is trying to meet someone and have a little adult fun sometimes. She's cool with it.

I'm looking for someone who writes in complete sentences and uses commas, someone who doesn't mind my singing and will potentially join in, and someone who might join in a moonlight swim someday. Hopefully someone who appreciates a "Dad bod", which apparently is what I have.

It's "circle the wagons" syndrome. The Republican establishment is afraid to admit they fucked up. His base is so loud that they have the old guard terrified. They figure Trump won't last past 2020, but anyone who speaks up now will have won the ire of the right wing base and they'll never work again. They won't get any more appearance fees from Faux News or fellowships with Heritage University. They won't be team players. Simply put, with a very few exceptions, they're exactly what you said; cowards.
Before gun control, when shootings were unheard of. 1950s an early 60s!
Paul4747 comments on Jun 27, 2019:
Are you seriously inferring a causal connection between gun control and gun violence? That's incredibly simplistic. As simplistic as inferring a connection based on immigration, or ethnic diversity, or the political parties, or any of 1000 factors. Our cities are more crowded and complex, our culture is both more tolerant and at the same time some elements are more intolerant, the economy has put pressure on more people than ever, the media culture makes violence seem omnipresent and makes some seek instant celebrity via committing violent crimes.... I could go on but I won't.

Unfortunately he can't be impeached for acts that took place before he entered the Oval Office. "You're a miserable excuse for a human being" is not an impeachment charge. Politics is the art of the possible. In order to get anything passed, the Senate Republicans will have to vote Yes on it. That's a fact. Hold out for a perfect bill and you get nothing but talking points on CNN. How does that help the kids in the border camps, exactly? The kind of idealism that makes the best the enemy of the good is exactly what got us Trump in the first place.

'The Catholic catechism teaches that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered" but also that LGBT people "must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided."' That sounds like an inherently contradictory statement. And it's just plain discrimination to fire a teacher for being gay.
New York Could Become First State To Be Completely Done With Private Prisons
Paul4747 comments on Jun 22, 2019:
It's far from as simplistic as you portray it. Voters demand "truth in sentencing", in other words longer sentences and less parole, but then balk at the cost of public prisons. Legislatures are sold on privatization as a cheap alternative, but don't consider that as a rule you get what you pay for. Republicans in general tend to see privatization as superior to the civil service on philosophical grounds; they believe the private sector does everything better and cheaper than government can, despite past experience. Michigan has not had private prisons for 20 years now, but the Republicans in our legislature keep trying to bring in bills to "study" what it would cost to turn over one or two facilities as a "test case" to private industry- even though we did it before and it was a failure.

I think the more important quotes are from Coleman Hughes: "If we were to pay reparations today, we would only divide the country further, making it harder to build the political coalitions required to solve the problems facing black people today," Hughes said. "We would insult many black Americans by putting a price on the suffering of their ancestors. And we would turn the relationship between black Americans and white Americans from a coalition into a transaction—from a union between citizens into a lawsuit between plaintiffs and defendants." Hughes added: "The question is not what America owes me by virtue of my ancestry; the question is what all Americans owe each other by virtue of being citizens of the same nation. And the obligation of citizenship is not transactional."

Why So Many People Believe Conspiracy Theories
Paul4747 comments on Jun 20, 2019:
I once read, of the JFK assassination: (words to this effect) "If you put the Nazis on one side and the Holocaust on the other, that balances. You have a great evil force and a horrific deed. People can comprehend that. But put Lee Harvey Oswald, an anonymous loser with a rifle, on one side, and the killing of the young, handsome President of the United States, on the other, and it doesn't balance out. People believe something greater must be responsible for such a horrendous crime. They want a dark conspiracy. It's too frightening to believe that one random man with a rifle can change the course of history."

How Mindfulness Became the New Capitalist Spirituality
Paul4747 comments on Jun 15, 2019:
Asking a stress-reduction technique to guide people in their political ethics is, I think, looking for something that isn't in the box. I don't go to a therapist seeking guidance on how to overturn the current imbalances of capitalism, but rather on how to cope with their effects on me. It's up to me to go out and vote, read the news, get involved. Whether I practice "mindfulness" or not, I don't believe has any influence on the overall thrust of my political awareness. I think the author is reading something into it that isn't there.

1. I doubt it will cost "millions". The cost will be well into the thousands, but this is the nature of such things. 2. It is not a "pointless exercise". This proceeding reaffirms the rule of law in civilized society. It is, first of all, necessary to establish beyond doubt the guilt of this individual and do all we can to nullify those who would try to portray him as some kind of "hero" in their warped ideologies. We must establish the sequence of events, painful as that will be. The forensic evidence must be seen. Finally, what would you suggest be done with this "absolutely guilty madman"? You say he deserves to be wiped off the face of the earth. I do not disagree. But to execute him **ABSOLUTELY REQUIRES** the process of trial by jury and a finding of fact. If not execution, then life imprisonment; which likewise **requires** a trial by jury, in our civilized societies. Without a trial, to simply lock someone away for life or dispose of them makes us barbarians. It puts us on the level of this murderer. And while we may derive a visceral satisfaction from such revenge, it is fleeting at best. It doesn't last. It sickens us individually and it sickens our society. Those it does not sicken aren't fit to live in civilized society.

Ammo sales rise in California ahead of new gun law - AOL News
Paul4747 comments on Jun 11, 2019:
You didn't actually read this law, did you? Neither, I suspect, did those who are stockpiling ammunition. https://www.laxammooc.com/california-ammo-laws-for-2019/ The exact same phenomenon took place in 2008 as soon as Barack Obama was elected, as idiots who knew nothing about the law or the Constitution took heed of hysteria fanned by the NRA and talk radio hosts that the new, ultra-liberal President would, with a stroke of his pen, sign executive orders making it illegal to move ammunition across state lines or restricting how much one could buy at a time or even putting a special tax on ammunition, so that one round would cost 5 dollars... and they created the very shortage they feared. It was two years before even .22 ammunition was readily available on a store shelf. The fact is, absolutely nothing will change in California, except that, in addition to a background check to purchase a gun (which is carried out instantly through the DoJ), buyers will have to submit their documents when they buy ammunition, beginning in July. There is no restriction on how much ammo a person can buy. The only restriction is that they must pass the check, meaning they aren't a convicted felon, not under a court order, haven't been involuntarily committed to mental care... and all these answers rely on the person responding truthfully. The system is still vulnerable to liars. (That's assuming they aren't flagged in the system, which we've seen is notorious for people failing to enter the data correctly.) Currently it is illegal to retain purchase records for the purpose of tracking who buys how many guns. Presumably, under federal law, the same applies to ammunition purchasing. It's nobody's damn business if someone who is law-abiding wants to buy 1000 rounds of ammunition to shoot on their weekends. That could easily be a month worth of shooting if that's what the person does for fun. Who is California- who is ANYBODY- to say, "You bought too much, you have to come in every Saturday, get your 5 boxes that day, and then come back again next week"? This is not a nation where we micromanage our citizens. If a person is over 21, obeys the law, and is making a legal purchase, pardon me for asking, whose fucking business is that? To be absolutely clear- this is not a restriction on ammunition purchasing. It's a background check and nothing more.

We watched the news the rest of the day and into the night, completely numb, mechanically eating lunch and then eventually had some dinner. To this day I also remember she got the blender out about 5:00 and made strawberry daiquiris from a mix. We had 3 each and got mildly drunk. I have no idea what got her making daiquiris, and she doesn't even remember doing it.

As Woody Allen observed, in *The UFO Menace*: The most frequently asked question about the UFOs is: If saucers come from outer space, why have their pilots not attempted to make contact with us, instead of hovering mysteriously over deserted areas? My own theory is that for creatures from another solar system "hovering" may be a socially acceptable mode of relating. It may, indeed, be pleasurable. I myself once hovered over an eighteen-year-old actress for six months and had the best time of my life.

Feminist Wife Wants to be Dominated in Bed
Paul4747 comments on Jun 4, 2019:
Well... it so happens I know this guy (who is totally not me, right? we're totally not talking about me) who just started a relationship with someone who is actually kind of shy and passive everywhere except in the bedroom... and it turns out that there, she has always had fantasies about being dominant. And this works out, because this guy (who, I reiterate, is totally NOT me) is in a career where people play dominance type games all day long psychologically, and it's a huge relief to "totally not me" to be able to just give that up and let someone else be in charge for once. And it is also helpful that she's super sensual and sexy. (So he says.) So it's not surprising that a woman like that would enjoy letting someone else take control sometimes, and find it arousing. It has nothing to do with gender.

I'm gonna stop you right there and say, "The reason Putin wanted Trump in office is because he knew he was an easily manipulated tool. Trump has spent his entire time in office cozying up to our enemies while pushing our allies away." Putin has also seen Clinton as an enemy since her time as Secretary of State when she insulted him by calling him out on his dictatorial tactics (he, like Trump, hates it when you tell the truth about him). So, puppet? Not all the time. But does he value Putin's opinion more than he values his own national security team? Absolutely. Any idiots care to argue that point?

Trump Already Owed More Money Than Any President in History—and Borrowed Millions More in 2018 –...
Paul4747 comments on May 25, 2019:
So, when's the last time any of y'all borrowed at 4.5% interest? That's about what I'm *earning* (in a great year) on my retirement plan. (Which is why I don't bother to add much money to it, inflation eats half of my gains.) It's blindingly obvious that the bank curried favor with Trump via a low-interest loan. "Life is like a shit sandwich; the more bread you have, the less shit you have to eat..."
His track record seems impressive. Would you support Bernie Sanders? [facebook.com]
Paul4747 comments on May 24, 2019:
Is the convention over already? Did he beat out the other 20-some candidates? Sure, he's got my support. Until then, his record is that he switched to Democrat as a flag of convenience when he wanted to run for the White House and then lost the primary in 2016, and he's too radical for 3/4 of the people I know. But I'm in a red county. I prefer someone with liberal credentials who can reach out to the middle, and doesn't have one failure under their belt. Someone from the middle of the country would be ideal.
Republicans view on rape (note one is from a woman). [facebook.com]
Paul4747 comments on May 24, 2019:
Yeah... this is further proof that the Republican party leadership (including the women) haven't a clue and are so out of touch with women's issues that they shouldn't be trusted to refill the toilet paper dispenser in the ladies' room, much less write legislation.

Paul4747 comments on May 24, 2019:
He's ordering the intelligence services to cooperate with Barr's investigation over how the Mueller probe started (which is a political question aimed at "investigating the investigators), but he's ordered his entire administration to refuse cooperation with Congressional subpoenas, because their investigation of him is purely political and unjustified. So it's another example of Trump's double standard. It's okay if HE does it...

James Dobson Warns Democrats Will ‘Enslave’ Conservative Christians | Michael Stone
Paul4747 comments on May 24, 2019:
This was actually tragic in how hilarious it was. Especially Dobson's attempt to rewrite history: "It was this unyielding commitment to religious liberty that led to American Revolutionary War from 1775 to 1783." Er... no... the Founding Fathers were deists. He's thinking of the Pilgrims, who did discriminate based on their fundamental religion. It was disputes over taxation in the wake of the French & Indian Wars and the Seven Years' War that led to the Revolution. But, considering that he thinks the Universe is only 6000 years old, this is a minor error by comparison.

I feel especially sorry for the baby who's being held like a stage prop by the geezer in the front left. As if to show his child-loving credentials. How many child-welfare bills do you suppose he's voted against in his career? But he's going to make damn sure their mothers give birth to them, dammit!

Amazing how people accept a single leaked document as "proof" that everything they've been saying for years is true and everything everyone else says is wrong. "The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity" is a misnomer. "The Ron Paul Institute for Isolationism and Burying Our Heads in the Sand" would be closer.

Paul4747 comments on May 20, 2019:
Of course, they'll dodge the question by answering, "MY wife isn't going to get raped; she doesn't hang around bad neighborhoods or flaunt herself at men. You know women who are raped encourage it, right? They're just asking for it..." Just as conservatives never think what would happen if a member of THEIR family needed public assistance and it wasn't there. "MY family aren't lazy bums." It always happens to someone else- until it happens to you....
Greta Christina: Do believers in a tri-omni God act like they believe in one?
Paul4747 comments on May 20, 2019:
They fundamentally (no pun intended) *have to* surrender one of the three attributes, because otherwise, there's no accounting for murders, accidental deaths, disease, parasites, predators, and so on, unless God Himself wants people to die in horrible ways. Now, I, as a father, don't protect my child from absolutely every hazard, because A) I can't, not being omnipotent and omniscient, and B), I know she has to grow up in a world where she has to take care of herself and I won't be around forever. BUT, if I were an eternal, omniscient and omnipotent Father, like God is supposed to be, then I would be able to protect her from all manner of harm; even hangnails! So the only reason not to would be that I'm not omnibenevolent; I *want* her to suffer and learn lessons, instead of (as the case is in real life) knowing that suffering and learning lessons is part of growing up. This type of God is like a lottery winner who doesn't tell the family they're now filthy rich, but just disappears for 8 hours a day and pretends to work while everyone else goes and works and lives a normal life; he thinks they're building character. I imagine the family might build some resentment once they found out they could have moved to a better house years ago.

Paul4747 comments on May 20, 2019:
This was pretty much the Deist view. God may have started the universe, but doesn't much care what goes on in it. The Founding Fathers were basically atheists... And who can prove otherwise?

How do you answer the banal message, "Hey, how are you?"
Paul4747 comments on May 20, 2019:
If I'm in a really pedantic mood: "I am because, billions of years ago, flaming clouds of gas coalesced out of the Milky Way and formed our solar system and the planet we call Earth. Then, the planet cooled, water vapor condensed and oceans, lakes and rivers appeared. Later, life evolved, beginning as single-cell organisms, and gradually becoming more complex; plants and animals, amphibians, dinosaurs, reptiles, and eventually the first mammals appeared. Then my parents met, they married, had sex one night, and 9 months later, I was born. That's how I *am*. Or did you mean something different by your question?"
