Re: USA, a fascist state? Confirmed

If one of them hadn't recorded a video and it went viral, they would never have come to trial. Even then one of them might never had been charged if he washed his truck before the police found a hand print from the victim on it.

Re: USA, a fascist state? Confirmed

The judge may have rightfully dropped the weapons charge because of poor wording. The judge dropped the violating curfew charge when that was clear cut and Rittenhouse couldn't plead extenuating circumstances since he wasn't a protestor exercising First Amendment rights. He wasn't charged with tresp...

But why, though? Do you think he just took a shine to him? Judges don't tend to look favourably on young hotheads who walk the streets with rifles You'd have to ask him.

The defense brought in a jury consultant to help get a favorable jury and run shadow juries to test defense strategies. Rittenhouse testifying had been shown to produce a better result.

Re: USA, a fascist state? Confirmed

Calm down. He shot white people in self defense. Just watch the videos They were white people protesting the police shooting in the back of a Black person. Rittenhouse got off because the judge held down the scales of justice with his thumb in excluding evidence and dropping charges. The vigilantes...

Re: Betrayal Blues

I miss playing the game in person where when I got stabbed I could deprive the stabber of the pleasure after the first thrust. I'd identify where he could go next as I withdrew to throw all my remaining forces at his new ally. Thereby making this new alliance shaky as his weak partner became stronge...

Re: War, what is it good for?

Putin knows, from doing it repeatedly, that the Western countries will soon return to accepting him no matter how egregious the acts of war. He's invaded and got to keep pieces from other countries, shot down a commercial airplane, and assassinated enemies in their countries. Russia isn't some third...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

A fun fact on nuclear power stations that isn't widely talked about is their environmental impact. The cooling systems suck in and kill fish. Lots of fish. Millions and millions of fish every year. This is true of regular buildings. For instance Trump's hotel and tower in Chicago takes in water and...

Re: Minting Trillion Dollar Coins

First the Treasury and Biden oppose minting a trillion dollar coin. Second it causes inflation and devalues the US currency by increasing the amount of currency even if not circulated. Third it encourages even more wasteful spending because Congress can keep spending if they can always have more mon...

Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Unlike the Vietnam Conflict, the "Korean War," and the fighting with the Indians, the Afghanistan War was legally granted by the US Congress as a war.
