geesh you are dense, Perry didn't get in trouble for threatening to veto a bill, but for demanding that he would veto the funding unless the DA resign he was demanding an particular action with the threat of a veto  (Sunday Aug 17 | post #1187367)

geesh, are you really that stupid that you don't understand context. If President Obama threatened to veto funding unless someone resign their position, then yes he would be in trouble for coercion Perry didn't get in trouble for using the veto, but for demanding that the DA resign and if she didn't he would veto a bill funding the county DA position  (Sunday Aug 17 | post #1187359)

Well said. We have no idea of what went down. Some one independent of the local police force needs to investigate. They need to review all the dispatch tapes, interview the witnesses, look at time lines, particularly of the robbery. When was it reported, when did the dispatchers broadcast it with descriptions, etc. This is interesting bit if true https://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=9_ic VWKO4_o  (Sunday Aug 17 | post #1187306)

I would say 50 lashes and a month in jail for inulting someone is over the top. If you want to compare something I would also ay you have to compare like things, like has a Saudi male ever been arrested for insulting the morality police and if so, what was the punishment. or a femaledrug dealer was arrested, what was her sentence  (Sunday Aug 17 | post #1187302)

actually standardized testing started in 1969 Under Richard Milhouse Nixon. However that being said, the current standardized testing was started under George W Bush and his "No child left behind" act. http://www.motherj ones.com/mixed-med ia/2011/03/NCLB-st andardized-tests-e xplained speaking of childish behavior, those who engage in hurling insults rather than facts remind me of something one would expect in the playground of a grade school  (Sunday Aug 17 | post #1187172)

Geesh, you are dumber than shinola. No one is arguing that Perry has the right to veto a bill. What the charges are, from a grand jury in a conservative state is that you can't use the veto power as coercion to get the DA to resign Coercion the practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats. is the practice of forcing another party to act in an involuntary manner by use of intimidation or threats or some other form of pressure or force  (Sunday Aug 17 | post #1187131)

What I have a problem with is that it took days for the police chief to come up with this alibi. Why didn't this story line come out at the very beginning. The strong arm robbery occurred 15 minutes before the stop. I very much doubt that the officer involved in the shooting even knew about the robbery. IMO, this is just the police trying to cover their butts. but regardless of anything, even if their was a struggle for the police officer's gun, Brown was running away, once he was shot, he turned around, got on his kneesand put up his hands. The offficer proceeded to shoot him multiple times. Theofficere lost it, plain and simple.  (Sunday Aug 17 | post #1187128)

Prove there's a god.

there's a slight misunderstanding. atheist do not believe in god because there is no evidence to support the existance of a god. There is nothing to believe in. Your concept is like saying atheism is to believe there is no Santa Claus while theism is to believe in santa claus.  (Saturday Aug 16 | post #769293)

Intelligent design: Life is too complex ergo it had to be created by design Then who is the designer?? you may thing you know everything there bucky, but ccreationism and intelligent design are the same thing repackaged Intelligent Design adherents believe only that the complexity of the natural world could not have occurred by chance. Some intelligent entity must have created the complexity, they reason, but that "designer " could in theory be anything or anyone. In 1802, William Paley used the "divine watchmaker" analogy to popularize the design argument *: If we assume that a watch must have been fashioned by a watchmaker, then we should assume that an ordered universe must have been fashioned by a divine Creator. Many traditional Creationists have embraced this argument over the years, and most, if not all, modern advocates for Intelligent Design are Christians who believe that God is the designer  (Saturday Aug 16 | post #769290)

No, I got thepoint alreigh. You thought the DA who was convicted of DUI should resign. I'm betting that if she were a republican, you wouldn't be so adament about her resigning. My thoughts were since she wasn't convicted of a felony, and the DA is an elected position, let the voters decide. You then said what if she were drunk and waving a gun around.. Then she would be guilty of a felony, and would have to resign, by law. as for how those crimes compare, do you want my position or that of the law.???  (Saturday Aug 16 | post #1186703)
