Re: Another Shooting

This is an individual who was adopted at the age of two. We don't know (or I haven't yet heard) the circumstances of his early life; but it's safe to assume they were less than ideal. So much of a person is shaped by the age of two, before an individual even has the ability to form memory. I believ...

Re: Another Shooting

Let me be as clear as possible. In Western society there are two primary modes of explanation, individual and social. Individual modes of explanation are dominant today. Explanations that rely upon mental illness are obviously individual explanations. They have succeeded explanations based upon evil...

Re: Another Shooting

Killing small animals for fun is often the first step for a serial killer. That kind of correlation is often meaningless. “Marijuana is a gateway drug for heroin. More than 95 percent of heroin users used marijuana first.” What percentage of marijuana users never used heroin? What percentage of boy...

Re: Another Shooting

From what I've read, Cruz was into killing animals for "fun." This doesn't sound like just an alienated, lonely, bullied child, but like a child developing a personality disorder. Being kind to people with personality disorders who manifest bad behaviors doesn't change their personality. My experie...

Re: Another Shooting

I'm sorry, I didn't express my thoughts clearly above. I didn't mean prevention by profiling and pre-emptively incarcerating potential mass shooters, completely agree that's not viable or just. I was suggesting a different approach to "bad and erratic behaviour" (in the Shitgibbon's words) than to ...

Re: Dangerous Personalities - How to Identify Them

Walt left behind in Washington state a raft of complaints. IIRC, there were some domestic abuse cases with his wife. I do not recall whether violence was involved. There was also disputatious participation in a port oversight committee.

I am now in St. Francis Hospital in Hartford. I came here by EMS on Friday night to find the ER jammed. Despite that, I have had a CAT scan, a MRI, two echocardiograms, three X-rays, and numerous blood tests. I think I am going to get better.

We have been having this okra discussion, on and off, since I joined PJ. Ya either likes it, or ya don't. I'm in the don't category. Give me a blue cheese stuffed olive with a martini!!
That turns a martooni into a form of food! Okra is more honest!

Re: Recipes!

I never had okra until I was in the air force and loved it. Some years later, making dinner for my family, I served okra never thinking to ask if anyone liked it. Turns out I was raised in a family of okra haters. They all like pears (which are vile) too, also. Maybe I'm adopted. Or you were depriv...

Re: Bundy related gossip and discussion

My coastal Oregon informant told me that the jury in the first Bundy trial was instructed that unless they found the occupiers guilty of conspiracy, they could not find them guilty of any other charges. Not having been there, I am not willing to certify that this is true. Her view was that the jury ...

No, the nominee was picked because of her views. They didn't expect it to become public knowledge. These people really believe the rest of us won't find out about this kind of thing.
