    It is a fascinating argument. But he doesn’t cite one thing. Not one. It’s all assertions.

    File it under “interesting if true.”

    I know for a fact that some Western NDNs (to borrow Segroves’ terminology) have a sun salutation ritual in the mornings.

    According to our drive-by IC poster they probably got it from the British anyway.

    The Empire where the rulers live in the only place where the sun don't shine... Almost poetic justice

  8. And to continue the vain call upon world leaders to act on the Sudan genocide:

    Darfur relives nightmares: 'Non-Arab minorities victims of ethnic cleansing'

    Terror has a name in Darfur: the Rapid Support Forces. New evidence from Human Rights Watch reveals their role in a brutal campaign against "non-Arab" minorities. "Masalit children were snatched away from their parents, thrown in a heap and shot," according to witnesses.

    Come on, dude. You really need to find somebody better than Kevin Drum. Most of the stuff you post from him is misleading in some form. It's so often, it's not worth looking at or responding to anymore.

    Y'all bit on that? The premise is in and of itself pointless as discussion material. Everyone with a dog in the fight really needs to focus on the distance remaining, as a way of maybe helping propel whatever progress occurs. No need to click at all.

    BTW, Obama's presidency resulted in Trump's election. There's your conservative response to America's progress.

    No he was not.

    Your response to data is an anecdote.

    Yes you should do your own research based entirely on vibes. Truth and reality are outdated anyway.

    I completely agree. But it’s also important to celebrate the progress in order to avoid hopelessness.

    Do you have any hope that women will again be free to abort in every state in your lifetime?

    The current situation is hopeless, if what you want is the educational freedom you had eight years ago. Race is perhaps the biggest part of and reason for those limitations.

    There's nothing wrong with having nothing to celebrate. There will be times of hopelessness. That's life.

    Yes

    well, obviously we disagree on that. That’s why I like to document progress.

    Dude, yes there is something wrong with it, at least when I post good news and you reject it. That’s literally a mental illness, to be irrationally hopeless.

    What was the flaw? The 36% isn’t the only number that’s valid or anything, but it’s a really useful number for judging racism in police shootings.

    At least it’s a stat and not anecdote, or worse yet “feelings.”

    Sheeit... you have expectations of longevity I can't even dream of, and my grands all made late 80s. Maternal GF was 103.

    I'm not the only one. 'Nutter sussed out your source before I got here. If you approve of Drum (or if for some unknown reason you're unwilling to judge character along with content) , you don't need anyone else on board. Neediness is a mental illness.

    He's thinking of a clever comeback that involves aligning his POV with the word "facts", like it matters if he uses it before you do.

    If you have to prepare your statement or reply that you "have better things to do...", you're probably in the wrong from jump, and giving it too much thought.
