That link could be a case study on statistics abuse. They break out every trick in the book to manipulate and distort the data.


the author cites Mother Jones...

 

hopefully everybody here knows the difference between hard journalism and editorial, yes?

 

between primary sources and secondhand?

The very last paragraph is exactly how I feel.


no doubt the author wrote the last paragraph first.

The problem with gun control advocates is that they don't know anything about guns. I hear journalists referring to a ban on automatic weapons. That is ridiculous.

And "semiautomatic?" Sounds scary and futuristic, but Wyatt Earp used a semiautomatic weapon.

Changing a clip in an "assault" rifle or a magazine in a pistol takes a few seconds, and someone intent on a mass killing will bring more than one weapon to the venue.

Tongue in cheek or not, this says a lot. It doesn't matter what your principles are or who you share your life with. If you disagree with the progressive position you are a racist. The whole "let me guess, you have a black friend?" thing is not rooted in the implication that people are lying and don't really have black friends. It's rooted in the idea that having a black/brown friend (or even a black/brown) wife doesn't mean anything, because this isn't about race. It's about shutting down the argument, denying underlying causes and keeping the black vote.

If being in a interracial marriage and having a diverse group of friends doesn't prove one is not a racist - what would?

This is known as the "Blasio be damned" argument.

1. Supporting programs that keep minorities in poverty so you can harvest their votes

2. Having no expectation that minority children can exceed in school, stay out of juvenile hall, and work hard, even if the work is manual labor or a trade

3. Supporting mass immigration of brown people to feel good about oneself; caveat: obtain for oneself housing in privileged gated community or high rise condo first.

4. Befriending blacks who act white but who aren't Uncle Toms (free-thinking).

5. Applying harsher standards to Western nations than third world nations or groups of brown people based upon belief that Westerners (whites) should know better but dark skinned people aren't as evolved.

That's how you prove you're not racist.

Wyatt Earp was a G.

US is amusing with the hyperawareness of hispanics and blacks vs whites.

One thing that always didnt follow IMO was if "it's what's on the inside that counts", content of character > color of skin MLK style..thennnn why are there all these parades and "awareness" and ethno-cultural "pride" and special school curriculums all this crap?

....I figure in the inevitable Blade Runner future dystopia when everyone is chinese then people finally wont care about appearances or where your great grandparents were from.

Referring to the ban on full auto in the 1930s or pointing out that the Venn diagram of semi-auto includes the M1?

Not sure of your point.

The problem with this is that the primary sources are often biased, not to mention, they are not always honest.

"Don't call me sir! I WORK FOR A LIVING!"
*butter bar walks by*
Good afternoon, sir.

Then everyone has to push because one kid couldn't learn to not call a DS "sir" by week 7.
