Some people have this thing called empathy. Some don't.

You mean Hilly and Billy can feel the pain, but Reggs doesn't?

Maybe, one day he will be worth $150,000,000 like Hilly and Billy, and then I bet he will.

Yes, exactly. Whatever many legitimate criticisms might apply to Bill and Hilary, it seems pretty clear that they have the capacity to feel (or at least the emotional muscle memory from once being able to feel) empathy for others. It's entirely possible that they lost the real thing along the way. But somebody who never had it is unlikely to acquire it, I suspect, through becoming rich.

On a serious note,

I can certainly believe Bill was an empathetic person at one time, if not now.

I have doubts about Hillary.

There's a difference between simply knowing what someone else might feel and being compasionate. How often you know and you don't give a crap anyway wink.gif ? I'd guess Hilary only cares about herself right now, but if needed she will show her human side and try hide how much she doesn't care.

Drudge's true colors are really coming out but he's the best at what he does. I think?

 

Gary Johnson:

Quote:

Gary Johnson believes the tensions between police and minorities that led to two high-profile police shootings and the deaths of five Dallas police officers has a root cause: The long-running war on drugs.

The libertarian nominee for president did not directly tie the drug war to the shooting deaths in Minnesota and Louisiana by police or the sniper killings of five officers in Texas this week. But poor relations between police and African-Americans stems from the criminalization of drug use, he said.

 

“The root is the war on drugs, I believe. Police knocking down doors, shooting first,” Johnson said in an interview Friday in Washington. “If you are (black and) arrested in a drug-related crime, there is four times more likelihood of going to prison than if you are white. And shooting is part of the same phenomenon.”

You could well be right about now. My point was really just that at least the Clintons understand the comcept and probably had some ability to employ it earlier in life.

H developed that empathy during all the time she spent among the people between 1994 and now.

Are lawyers legally people?  Or should they be?

Before you answer, consider some of the lawyers on this forvm.  Also that half of Congress is lawyers.
