“According to my rudimentary understanding of the Scientific Method, shouldn't we be looking for simply alien life, not intelligent lifeforms? It feels like NASA has given official approval to skip a few steps. Are there some discoveries they haven't announced yet?”

“So, why the piling on voting restrictions which the Republican state legislatures knows would disproportionately affect African-Americans in their states? In states like North Carolina and Texas, literally new Voter ID bills filed every legislative session which little data to prove massive voter fraud? You call it "obeying the law": I believe most people would call it "moving the goalposts" for partisan gain.”

accmiller on Jul 25, 2013 at 13:38:09

“You can't prove voter fraud because we currently don't demand anyone prove who they are. Is it really that bad of an idea to require ID to vote? It seems pretty prudent to most of America.”

“The article is about voting rights, not black-on-black crime. In America, the largest percentage of crime is white-on-white crime. Very curious what "crime" has to do with Republican-drafted, passed new voting rights laws?”

“You brought up obeying the law, or actually our "masters." I was pointing out that obeying the law is not about obeying our masters but actually respecting one another.”

“You are right. Just like with women (with more and more abortion-rights restrictions), Republican white male politicians just giving African-Americans more of them [new laws, ie, restrictions]. But, guess what..since the percentage of blacks voting was higher than whites during the 2012 election which re-elected President Obama. We could stand to obey even more laws (that most Republican white men are less likely to be affected by), so if we obey our 'new' old masters, we have nothing to worry about, right?

Or is that another thing Republican white men say behind our backs, but not to our faces. Wonder why?”

accmiller on Jul 25, 2013 at 08:42:18

“Yes obeying the law does make it a lot easier to be succesful in life. It has nothing to do with white versus black. It just means people should obey the law. With black-on-black crime being the largest percentage of violent crime by far, I would think you would like some deterrent.”

“Zimmerman took the neighborhood watch upon himself. No one ever assigned him anything. In fact, Zimmerman claimed he didn't even know between what streets he was with Trayvon the night the shooting occurred.

If that sounds ludicrious, it is..if you're black. White people are absolved. Skittles are a deadly weapon, don't you know?”
