Trump also called her a body double in recent days. I think Hillary and Bill were one of the first to receive justice
Exactly, it satisfies the criteria for "money". All else is "currency". We learned this is in economics 101 so long ago!
"All I want to say is that THEY don't really care about us"
Thanks to everyone who told others to double check their vote. Another win!
The painted toenails scene really makes you think about all these sex workers and e-girls. High probability they've been sexually abused and they're mentally trapped
Yeah that hit hard. The way they started the movie and ended it in the same location really knocked it out of the park. After everything she went through too.. I need to learn more about the real Tim Ballard and how I can support his work. I might have to switch fields and get into cyber forensics and do what I can to help.
I started tearing up when the boy saif his name was "Teddy Bear" in the car. It gives the perspective of everyone human trafficking effects - the kids, the parent, the investigators, the traffickers themselves and of course the warped minds of the pedophiles. I wasn't expecting it to be very graphic given the movie is PG-13 but they masterfully left the graphic details off screen without losing the traumatic emotional impact.
It's a great movie and it definitely lays the ground for more work like this to be released. All but two seats in my theatre were filled.
Sweetie, your toy project and your degree mean nothing since again, you've failed to disprove any bit of those statistical claims. My initial post clearly stated my position, if you become a victim of violent crime the probability that it's a black person is very high - that doesn't mean all black people are like that but their communities are predisposed to these behaviors. It's a mixture of culture and genes.
Black Americans account for 52% of all violent crimes and commit those violent crimes at rates much higher than other races. You've made excuse after excuse but ignore that similar data about the black community around the globe exists - it's not isolated to the USA and disproves your imaginary hypothesis of a Boogeyman that only seems to be able to control this one specific community. All you've done is make an appeal to authority without providing anything to refute those claims, for the third time (your education seems second rate, that's evidenced by your inability to use any data to defend your position).
The richest black majority communities in the USA have higher crime rates than the poorest white majority communities in the USA. In African nations that crime rate per capita is much higher than in European or Asian countries.
You have liberal beliefs because you believe race is a social construct. Social constructionism is a liberal position. It's a fair assessment to say you're liberal from your liberal assertions and the fact you keep saying you're from Philadelphia, a predominantly liberal area, like that's a badge of honor or something.
You judge me then go on to quote scripture saying not to judge others, the irony is palpable. You're seething so hard and it's laughable. Go adopt another cat or something or, if you're so inclined to displaying your idiocy in public, tell us more about your golden years when you worked on your school project 🤣.
You have nothing substantive to say so you go "durr hurr, bad statistics" without any actual refutation. This is because you argue in bad faith.
Again, there is organized crime throughout the world but blacks internationally have some of the highest crime rates. There is Yakuza everywhere in Japan yet Japan is extraordinarily safe. You display the bigotry of low expectations and that's understandable, you're from Philadelphia so you're deeply entrenched in liberal thinking.
And before you try and judge me based on my username, which is a shallow assessment, you should crawl back in your hole with the rest of the liberals.
Vengeance is Mine, and recompense;
Their foot shall slip in due time;
For the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things to come hasten upon them.’
Why is the SAT useless? We need a national standard to benchmark students with. It tests fundamental skills required in higher education like math and English. A 4.0 GPA in the inner city isn't equivalent to a 4.0 GPA in a private school and a standardized test can show that.
Brother, if you're going for a math degree, yes, you will learn abstract math that might be useless. Classes like calculus and statistics are absolutely crucial to know for a wide range of applications, especially in STEM. I would start with removing bullshit degrees like gender studies. Math, language, and computer skills are absolutely critical to the success of our nation. Those fancy hypersonic missiles we have? It was the nerds that made it.
I agree, we should pay our trade workers more and have more trade schools. We need more STEM schools though too. The world is becoming more technological not less, and unfortunately, a welder isn't going to be able to help when foreign nations initiate cyber warfare. It is the STEM students of tomorrow that will inevitably create the machines/A.I that revolutionize the world.
As for an overhaul, a classical education (Socratic vs didactic) will produce geniuses.
Timing is everything
By today's current SAT scores, Black Americans will be kept out of most universities. These schools will be majority white/Asian now, which will end up reflecting in average income over the years. I don't think Asians and whites should be penalized for getting high SAT scores while their black counterparts can score several hundred points lower.
The exact impact will vary by institution, but a general guideline is that 40-60% of enrolled Black students and 25-45% of enrolled Hispanic students would no longer be admissible, with corresponding drops in enrollment.
If this extends to the job market then all the diversity hires can go bye bye. They need to end gender based discrimination next and stop with quotas for women too.
What's the solution to get better educated minorities? School choice and 2 parent households (stop divorcing each other damnit).
On another positive note, this might reduce higher education costs.
It's a metaphor, don't be a dullard. Try to use more than emotional reasoning and shaming tactics. Humans are not all the same. Any forensics and anthropology expert can identify the race of a human by their skeleton and bone structure alone.
So you're denying genetics, which is fine and that's your opinion but its a misinformed opinion. Certain races are predisposed to particular disease just as they are behavior. That doesn't mean every person in that race behaves that way but it's these generalizations that hold true. You will acknowledge genetic differences arise in the physical features but your liberal programming stops you from seeing it extends to intellect and behavior as well.
At the end of the day, you're committing the bigotry of low expectations. So what, you think black people aren't capable of making their own decisions? They aren't autonomous and just do whatever those in power tell them to? Asian Americans aren't predisposed to problems in the Black community, why is that?
You live in Philadelphia, so what? Does the mayor of Philly go to his local neighborhood gang meetings and tell them to shoot each other and rob each other? It's hilarious that you think everyone is the same yet hold blacks unaccountable for their own actions.
Did you know, the richest black majority areas in the US still have more crime than the poorest white majority areas?
No matter how badly you want to believe in the "blank slate hypothesis" it's not true and the fact that 52% of all violent crimes are committed by less than 15% of the population proves that.
STEM is most definitely worth it.
Universities gonna be 40% East Asian, 30% South Asian, and 20% White, 10% the rest.
I don't think it's a 1:1 comparison. If certain politicians end up making a deal, after elections are secured, they will just be voted out. The deals are to maintain an overall positive public perception of our government locally and nationally.
A more appropriate comparison is a doctor cutting out 90% of the cancer because removing the last 10% could put the patient at risk. Then the doctor would treat the remaining 10% using non-invasive treatments that guarantee the survival of the patient and total eradication of the cancer.
Got my tickets early! Got the best seats in the house
Yeah it's all theatre, I agree. Consider this one thing though, what would happen if 25,000 Navy SEALs decided to start a coup?
The Patriots are in control
This level of scandal would destroy the Democrats as it would implicate a majority of the party. Who else was taking money is the next question. This is definitely the white hats.
It's cheaper to eat carnivore than it is to buy vegetables, even with inflation. A pound of ground beef is $4 which is about 1000 calories. $4 worth of vegetables or fruit might be a total of 200-300 calories, and that's being charitable
Sugar feeds cancer cells. Keto/carnivore is the way
They would know now because it would be in the commit history
