Re: Peterson's parents, left alone because they weren't 'lds'

I don't think he's implying in any way that he neglected his parents. Even if he visited a few times a year, it would still be true that for the most part they lived lonely lives. Of course, it's very possible that this is what they wanted. Peterson lives in a college town. Ritzy communities aren't ...

Re: Trump and the Revenge of John Fogerty

Fogerty is a liberal. Listening to his music would feel like wearing a pair of Nike LeBron sneakers made by Uyghur slave labor in China. Ajax, you're not making a great deal of sense. - up until 1/19/22, you've been a sometimes fan of John Fogerty and have had his stuff on Spotify. - 1/19/22, meDot...

Not so fast, Ajax. Are you saying you're removing Fogerty merely because MeDotOrg associated him with Trump's taxes?

Re: Is there any real difference between Donald Trump and Joseph Smith?

As I ponder this, I'm not seeing any real difference in the personalities, values, standards, loyalty to the truth, marital fidelity, etc. between Joseph Smith and Donald Trump. Sure, they lived during different times and built different things (buildings vs. religion) during their lifetimes, but e...

Re: Cop grabs throat... of female officer trying to stop him

Do you think it's just random chance that the U.S.A. is so much different from that, or do you think there are specific, concrete reasons therefor? I think in China, people are terrified of the government. In the USA, we think the capitol is our house and we can breach it anytime and attack officia...

Re: Cop grabs throat... of female officer trying to stop him

I bet if we required a 4-year degree in Criminal Justice or Law Enforcement (whatever that’d look like), followed by a couple of years of job training before a cop hits the streets, and then backed by excellent pay out of the gate we’d see the quality of LEO recruits rise dramatically. I can't say ...

Re: Cop grabs throat... of female officer trying to stop him

My question is -- I know almost nothing about law enforcement or law enforcement culture etc. -- what's supply and demand like for cops? Are lots of people trying to become cops or are they hard to find? In other words, how picky can we be when hiring cops?

Re: Rogan gets Owned on Air by CNN doctor

My comment relates to how Rogan - while broadcasting to millions - didn’t do his. I disagree. Rogan's average listener is a Cultellus-level "regular guy" who is unhinged and thinks there's a conspiracy against him personally. These people expect Joe to be contrarian to all institutions, especially ...
