I used to think this kind of stuff was absurd. Well I still think it is absurd, but I have come to love it simply because I know it will piss off so many of the right people should they see it.

No, it is not a joke. It is for real. It is part of the progressive efforts to normalize behaviors that result in acquiring aids. We cant shame people who have acquired aids through risky behaviors because it will disproportionately affect the gay community, BUT don't you dare say gays get aids disproportionately. They are also letting gays give blood now, despite the much elevated risk for aids, because we dont want to hurt feelings.

When this first came out, I heard people say that it was a nod to the gay community.  Wouldn't gays be just as outraged as everyone else that someone was knowingly  infecting other people with a deadly disease?  How is this not some sort of attempted murder?

Yes some, and some no.

Bug parties are private functions, sometimes with multiple participants, where HIV positive men (at these parties called gift givers) and HIV negative men (bug chasers) willingly have unprotected sex. This often leads to the infection of the HIV negative person.

It is also worth noting is will disproportionately affect the IV drug using community, and we cant have that either.

Its aimed at decriminalizing victims of human trafficking. The majority of those impacted by this law is sex workers.

Then why not carve out such a specific exception?

Im guessing because 95% of the 800 total cases involve sex workers?

Ex-cop Michael Slager sentenced to 20 years for shooting death of Walter Scott

Former South Carolina police officer Michael Slager was sentenced today to 20 years in prison for the deadly shooting of unarmed black man Walter Scott.

 

http://abcnews.go.co...ory?id=51595376

 

This happened over two and a half years ago.  It was about as open and shut as a case gets in regards to excessive force/police brutality and yet Slager was only sentenced today in federal court after a state murder trial ended in a mistrial (how...?).

Not guilty, obviously....

Of course, we’re all very lucky, in the broadest sense of the term. As Olivia Newton John might say if she went to grad school, let’s get metaphysical. The late philosopher John Rawls had a thought experiment called “the original position.” The basic idea is to imagine that you are a disembodied soul waiting outside this world in a kind of placeless, meaningless limbo — sort of like a Delaware rest stop. He then asks you to think about what kind of society you would want to be born into. But here’s the catch: You won’t know if you’ll be born rich or poor, smart or dumb, black, white, Asian, Hispanic, gay, straight, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, never mind if you’ll be able to fit 43 Cheetos in your mouth at one time. You’ll be behind what Rawls called a “veil of ignorance.”

 

Obviously, if there were, say, a one-in-five chance you’d be born black, you probably wouldn’t want to be born into a society that makes black people slaves. If there’s a 99 percent chance you’d be born poor, you probably wouldn’t want to be born in feudal Europe, Asia, or any other society where peasants had no rights and few means of improving their lot in life.

 

(It’s a useful thought experiment, but it has its flaws. Rawls was a pretty standard liberal, and that sometimes got in the way. For instance, he was also pro-abortion, at least in the first trimester. That’s a problem for the original position, because I’m pretty sure that one of the criteria I would value if I were off in some metaphysical Forbidden Zone trying to decide where I would want to be born, would be that I be allowed to be born in the first place. Another problem: I generally don’t like political philosophy that starts from the assumption we can create societies from scratch, as if we were God. Societies are emergent properties full of other emergent properties. The assumption, even for the sake of a thought experiment, that we can know how best to create a society from scratch, can lead to some horrible things. The Jacobins tried that, and the guillotines had to sharpened every week as a result. The Founders, on the other hand, raked the past and the British tradition and built on the best stuff they found.)

 

Anyway, where was I? Oh, right. If you were hovering above Earth looking to be born randomly into any time period in human history, you’d pick now if you had any brains. And if you could pick a place, you’d pick a Western liberal democracy, and probably the United States of America (though as much as it pains me to say it, you wouldn’t be crazy to pick Canada or the U.K. or Holland). Sure, if you could pick being rich, white, and male — and didn’t really care too much about the plight of others — you might take the 1950s. But even then, your choices for food, entertainment, etc. would be terribly curtailed compared to today. If you chose to be a billionaire in 1917, you could still die from a minor infection, and good Thai food would be entirely unknown to you. You’d certainly never enjoy watching a Star Wars movie on an IMAX screen in air conditioning. In other words, while your homes would be bigger and cooler if you were a billionaire in 1917, a typical orthodontist in Peoria in 2017 is in many respects much richer than a billionaire a century earlier.

Legal process takes time. I had a simple recorders court issue that was over a code enforcement issue with zero discovery, forensics, jury vetting, or any other complications, just legal briefs and arguing in front of the judge. That took 8 months to process including the county's aborted appeal to the superior court.

Brings back a memory. Had a similar issue with the local hysterical historical district several years age and the preservation socialists running it. After several months, I organized a petition to dissolve said district. Haven't had a problem since ;)
