“Lets see...Get home at 12am from bar job, up at 3:30 am. 10 min for coffee and emails then time to get ready for school. Until you've walked in my shoes, run in my schedule, you have no right to tell me what I should do.”
“Is it just me, but is all this pontificating about a 1.2% variation in sales a bit overblown? There are any number of reasons why you can see a quarterly variation that small. Certainly all the people crowing about McD's imminent demise are overdoing it! An every McD's I see lines wrapped around the store at peak hours.”
“Working at fast food only qualifies you for another fast food job. They don't teach a single transferable skill.
The fact is , despite the oft debunked 'skills gap' rhetoric our economy is mostly producing low skill low wage 'fast food' jobs. Increasingly there is nothing better to move up to,particularly if like most people , you don't have a college degree.”
“Since all polls and election results indicate there are at least as many liberals and conservatives, I would assume it's because liberals are for whatever reason less interested in getting their news/opinions from the radio.”

“Here's a moral question. If this condition is the result of an innate quality of the brain then theoretically it would be possible to screen for it in children. Perhaps even very young ones.
If we can , just what should we do about it? I mean if it's possible to detect incipient psychopathy in, say a 6 year old, what do we do about them? What do we do with them? Or is a child's brain in too plastic a state for that to be reliable?
What do we do if a reliable screening for psychopathy in adults shows someone is in fact a psychopath? What do we do with them? They really are a neurological other in a sense they will always be at war with the rest of us. What do we do with that knowledge?”

“Child experts agree that at the age of 5 years, a person's personality is permanently established, any changes in his/her character is 'taught'. It might be a good idea to have such examinations available for troubled kids to see if these traits are evident. What to do with them? Not a clue..”

“Not being able to form close relationships will cause problems for them. ..but with help they do not present a problem to society. Its easier for them to hurt or kill others ..but there are other ways to teach morality without using empathy. If others around them understand their deficit it will make it easier to deal with the interpersonal problems.”

“What every society that abandons its humanity would do with them: lock them in a cage forever or start the roundups and executions.
This is the salacious key to paradise for government: thought crime punishable by execution. The total subjugation of a population. This would be more pleasurable than sex for the average bureaucrat. They want it like dogs want gravy.”

“Just keep an eye on them, I guess. That's all we can do. Most people might hear the word "psychopath" and assume murderer, but a clinical psychopathy diagnosis doesn't necessary mean you'll ever do anything illegal.”

“The simple fact is that overwhelmingly they are up against handguns. Spectacular and highly publicized incidents involving military style weapons are statistically very rare, dealing with incidents like this is why SWAT units were formed.”

“Well I'm going to give everyone a heart attack by agreeing with a Republican, particularly on gun control.
Only a very tiny percentage of muders are committed using any type of longarm.(About 3%-4%) which includes 'normal rifles and shotguns.
Overwhelmingly murders are committed by handguns (about 57%) and the Justice departments own survey shows criminals overwhelmingly prefer large caliber handguns to commit crimes due the their avalilability, effective lethality at the ranges that typical violent crimes are committed , and concealabilty. Put simply, nobody is walking around pulling stickups with AR-15s.
So yes I have to come down on his side of the argument on this regard.
Good laws can only be based on correct information.”
the eyeroller on Apr 10, 2013 at 13:47:54
“that's true, of course, but the new law is kind of aimed at preventing mass shootings, not really home invasions or carjackings.
so really, these stats are sort of apples and bowling balls.
the great fallacy fo the right is the failure to see the importance of context and bringing up handgun stats in the argument over assault weapons and how to prevent newtown-style mass shootings is an attempt to distract the discussion because they know they can;t win on actual facts.
again, the stats are true, but don't really address the issue being debated...”

“i hear ya... and it all makes sense.
but like someone said earlier, you might want to talk to the LAPD about the weapons they are up against every day.”
“Somebody can alway find somewhere where there aren't many guns. The solution of 'Then lets have guns everywhere' seems to me to be a deranged solution for what is in essence a very small problem created by a few isolated incidents.”
“This statement is objectively nonsense. Children aren't being gunned down every few seconds by the deranged. School shootings are very rare, isolated incidents and your overheated hand wringing would do well to be saved for much bigger issues.”

“I lost interest in Carlin about a decade before he died. His 'angry curmudgeon' routine didn't impress me, seemed like he was almost phoning it in, almost running on the momentum of his past.
On the other hand , what a past! And I almost actually cried when I heard he died.”

“Most, if not all, first time uses notice no effect. That's because cannabis is unique in that it has a reverse tolerance effect, ie. it takes a few times before it's effects are felt.”

“Uh dude, can you do math? According to the numbers 86.5% of graduates are not in this predicament. And the simple fact is that the wage difference between college grads and non-grads is the largest it's been since the end of WW2.
The simple truth is that in this society NOT getting a degree is about the worst mistake you can make. The fact is that the SMALL minority of graduates working low level jobs will have a chance to move ahead in the future. Without a degree in this economy you are pretty much relegated to the fry station for life.”
“The left hasn't won in America. We don't have an actual left in America that actually amounts to much. The Democrats are winning (slightly) but they aren't the left they are center right. What we have is the center right winning over the insane not the left winning over the right.”
