    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    That's not what he's being charged with so it has no bearing here. It's whether Mo's text was detrimental to the girl in California based on child pornography and revenge porn laws.
  2. As long as I don't have to sit through Walt staring at things, I'm ok with it.

    You don't think Mo's text was intended to be detrimental to the girl?
  4. I couldn't get through season 2 - it's just plain boring.
  5. The wife and I just finished season 3 and like it.

    The Angry Violent Right

    Hopefully, they apprehend and try the attacker. But since the attacker isn't known yet, how can the conservative media immediately know he's liberal? Here's the story from Newsweek: https://www.newsweek.com/conservative-student-assaulted-uc-berkeley-while-recruiting-other-1340057

    And 44% replied “no” to the following: (Those 44% are wrong. ”Hate speech,” with some caveats, is legally protected under the US constitution.) https://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-berkeley-protest-shapiro-20170914-htmlstory.html https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/09/15/ben-shapiro-berkeley-protest-arrests/669071001/ Other posters have already debunked your claims, but I'll pile on by pointing out that you moved the goalposts. Here's your post @Landlord was replying to: So even if your claims weren't debunked, you're still moving the goalposts from "having violent protests and death threats" to "agreeing with statements about violent protests".

    You should tell your friend that the Supreme Court ruled on the detrimental effects way back in 1911. Summary:
  9. LB voting was difficult for both positions. I wanted to vote for all of them.

    The Way to Early 2020 Presidential Election

    So he did say a couple of things about Trump, but my point remains that Schultz launched his campaign attacking the Dems: Howard Schultz kicks off potential bid to unseat Trump... by attacking Democrats Budding independent Howard Schultz aims most of his ire at Democrats Howard Schultz: I'm doing something right if Democrats are mad at me And then he tries to subvert the party primary: Howard Schultz’ challenge to Democrats: Nominate a centrist for president and I’ll abandon my independent campaign I'm not saying you can't like him as a candidate - I'm trying to show you why liberals might not like him as a candidate as you originally were asking. Can you not see why his actions might not be taken kindly by liberals?

    I don't think I've heard of anyone saying his past work history is something that liberal voters would hate. If he'd have run in the Dem primary, then a lot of the Dem voters (many of whom are liberals) would be more interested. (Also, I don't necessarily agree with the common idea that he'd suck away Dem voters helping Trump win because I think he could suck away at least as many Repub voters.) His track record of being socially and environmental contentious in running his business are indeed things that liberals were and are interested in and support. However, you're not looking at what he has done in his short time campaigning. He got a lot of media attention simply because he's rich - there's not really any denying especially since he's put forth no ideas - and that turns off a lot of people. But more importantly, look at what he's been saying about the Dem candidates - he's basically just been attacking the Dems with little (none?) attacks on the Repubs. If he really wanted to paint himself as a independent alternative, then he'd have been just as critical of both parties and their policies, but he focused almost all of his attention on the tax increases for the wealthy, which just reinforces the dislike of his attention due to wealth. I'm not sure there could have been a much better way to deliberate alienate liberals and without embracing the right. Also, why even launch a campaign if he doesn't even know what his policies or vision are? He could have easily waited a few months or until all the Dem candidates were running, and then launched a campaign where he can point out what policies of theirs he doesn't agree with and what he'd propose instead. Maybe he can recover from his bad campaign launch, btu right now he just comes off as a guy without ideas that only getting talked about because he's wealthy.

    You asked why liberals don't support Schultz, and I gave a some reasons. Thanks for the link. But here's why I think he's just a lousy candidate regardless of political leanings, he's just empty talk: "He just won't say how much more." He's running a campaign based on hot air. If and when he puts out something of substance, then we can actually debate whether his ideas and policies are good for America.

    The "where" is literally described in the article. But that doesn't support your preconceived notions so it must be "fake news", right?

    Have you considered that maybe your opinion is wrong? Conservatives have been claiming media bias going back decades. However: Examining the "liberal media" claim: journalists' views on politics, economic and social policy (including health care), and media coverage. The Myth of the Liberal Media If someone cannot even admit that their opinions might be biased or incorrect - they are far to entrenched in their positions to warrant a reasonable discussion and possible changing of minds.
