Agree RR. In many Northern European jurisdictions, police officers spend years learning the complexities of dealing with mental illness. Their core objective is to de-escalate and protect people from harm until appropriately trained professionals can respond.RollingRock » 16 Jun 2020, 12:56 pm » wrote: ↑
Seems to me this is a "no brainer." Imo, people with pronounced psychiatric issues should always be addressed by those trained in mental health issues. Thoughts?

This does not describe Liberals or Liberalism. It describes the behavior of saints. And then complains about their scarcity. There is not one word about idealism or equality.Cannonpointer » 20 Jun 2020, 4:14 pm » wrote: ↑
A liberal is a fellow who stands against the lynch mob - never one who joins it. A liberal judges people by the content of their character - not the color of their skin. A liberal intuitively refuses to subscribe to the notion of corrupted blood, never holding a man responsible for what that man's great grandfather might or might not have done.
A liberal steadfastly refuses to generalize or paint with a broad brush - no liberal has ever used the name Karen or the word Boomer as an insult, because liberals react to people as individuals, not as representatives of this or that group. Judging a human being based on group identity is anathema to a liberal. Liberals seek the greatest good for the greatest number, never putting a few hundred stake holders' interests over tens of thousands, or a million over a hundred millions.
Liberals judge ideas on their merits, and not by who uttered them. Just because a woman said it, that doesn't make it less true or less serious, to a liberal. Likewise, just because a person of color said it, or just because a conservative white heterosexual said it. It is the IDEA which a liberal judges - not the source.
Liberals work to bring the peace, to bring conciliation. Liberals seek compromise - though not at the expense of principles. Liberals look for common ground with their opponents, and value the many legitimate positions that their opponents have, listening respectfully and with an open mind to opposing views. Liberals are the very last to engage in shouting down or censoring.
Liberals are a rare and disappearing breed. Someday, I would like to meet one.
Heroes, MAYBE. Saints? Give that **** a break. You just don't like being held to a genuine standard - the very standard promulgated by Doctor King.
You can't whine that I am describing saints and then complain that I didn't talk about the ideal. You need to make up your mind.
Most of those are republican values, dumb ***. The repukes have been championing almost all of that since reagan.
Pragmatism is not exclusively a liberal value. Fascists are often very pragmatic. And an unpragmatic person can still be a liberal. So that's meaningless pabulum.bludog » 20 Jun 2020, 10:00 pm » wrote: ↑
I have been unable to find resources on the timeline for US mortality/excess deaths. Wikipedia only shows a chart based on excess mortality from Chile, so we can use that as a proxy (as the outbreak was far deadlier in South America compared to North America).RollingRock » 13 Jun 2020, 3:01 pm » wrote: ↑
People's lives are more important than the economy.
If we need to, absolutely. The trick is getting it right the FIRST time (which we did not do).
Of course. And I prioritize American lives first.
This is another point, which I predicted you would make, that has made you an unwitting supporter of Wall Street's agenda, which I hope you will re-evaluate in light of everything that's happened (given that you are clearly a Bernie Sanders supporter, I doubt you are a big fan of Wall Street)."People's lives are more important than the economy."
What exactly should we have done differently?If we need to, absolutely. The trick is getting it right the FIRST time (which we did not do).
I do as well. Unfortunately, the lockdowns have destroyed many lives, so I surely hope the lockdowns will not happen again.Of course. And I prioritize American lives first.
Thank you, But what makes my discussions unique is I describe life without if reinterpreting the past so far and the triangulating could, would, should governing human emotions from now on through trained context and believing life originated anywhere else but the moment sustaining the universe perpetually balancing between did exist, is existing, does continue or not duplicated again per lifetime, ancestral part of the food chain, planet, solar system, galaxy of solar systems.

It's surreal, isn't it. We spent two weeks just hopping from town to town and wandering around the landscape - being following around by Icelandic ponies, like huge round friendly dogs.
I'm surprised to hear that - I never duck a question, unlike the panty dancers who snipe at me from cover. Not ducking questions has been, IMO, a motif and a point of pride with me. "slippery" is probably the most insulting thing I have been called on this board, from my perspective - though I am not suggesting the slight was dishonest on your part, or intentional. Just surprising.
Over population might be a problem - have to reach 30 billion or so people to find out. So far, every population benchmark we have hit that was supposed to be a tipping point has been breezed past with HIGHER standards of living and LONGER life spans, new technologies having obviated the predicted tipping point crises. In my experience, tomorrow tends to look like today, which looks like yesterday. So whatever the next population tipping point is - I no longer pay attention, you understand, - I pffft in the general direction of. The fossil layer is ever in the making on this mighty hopper of a planet - we are not going to deplete it as we and everything we make are nothing more than an extremely temporary part of it and are being recycled within it as we speak.
That is a somewhat crude and hateful assessment, but not wrong I guess. If you are into accelerationism these are Heady times to live in. Me, I just hunker in my bunker and think about death a lot. I never used to contemplate my own death before 2020, now I think about it every day. What’s going to get me? Covid? A violent mob? A cop that I look at sideways on a bad day? The giant tidal wave of homelessness that is surely about to flood the streets as all the eviction protection runs out?KFSW » 24 Jun 2020, 5:47 pm » wrote: ↑
A very immature country. Just look at the presidential candidates.
These narcissistic loons are symptomatic of a sick country.
Putin ran circles around Obama and know Trump. Biden?? LMAO. Putin will *** rape Biden like a drunk Blasey-Ford.
The world continues to trust Russia and China more than WAR, INC *** USA.
Get yer popcorn and watch it unfold
Why do you liberals have to see something wrong in everything. You sweat life too much. idiot.
Glad to see you here OldBarn. If you want, you can resume posting in LO her at .net, just as if nothing ever happened at .org. Maybe I can get your screen name changed back to TheOldBarn, if you'd like me to try?OlderGuy » 27 Jun 2020, 8:16 pm » wrote: ↑
I used to post as The Old Barn but when I was informed of Liberalforum.net I couldn't log in because I forgot my password and no longer have the email I used to use - that was a while ago - like 9 years...
Anyway, on the spot, "Older Guy", was the only screen name I could think of.
Well yeah. It's kinda like that ... What happened at .org. The new owner turned the place into heaven for bigots, trolls and flamers. And, as you know, did away with LO there.What has happened at example.com?q=? It's crazy, it reminds me of what happened just prior to Obama getting elected in 2008. Do you remember when Clear Channel bought all the Liberal Shows on radio and overnight turned them into Right-Wing Conservative talk shows? I live in the SF area in California, and it was wacko.
I'm glad you got my email over there. Up until now, I wasn't sure. It was the last thing I was able to do before being banned.Thank you for giving me heads up on this location Bludog!
What is so wrong with Putin? He's restored the orthodox church. He's not invading other countries. He's keeping Russian children from being indoctrinated in gender confusion and homosexuality. He's not falling for the global warming wealth redistribution scheme. With your ilk calling Trump a Nazi I am starting to doubt the validity of your claims about Putin.
