nel, I think the issue is that somebody whose life work is supposed to be the study of labor, race, gender, race, class, equality, women's history and social politics attempted to violently take away somebody else's right to speak their opinion in a public venue which is the pinnacle of hypocrisy.
Apparently there is a feminist out there getting some attention who believes 90% of the male population should be culled and has promoted a national castration day for males.
She believes that this would reduce the violence and problems in the world we have today.
Granted most feminists do not subscribe to these ideas, they do promote the concepts that led her to her conclusions.
Interestingly, one thing she doesn't mention is that women kill more babies than there are murders, by about 10-20 times in fact. In that sense if you believe abortion is murder, well, then women commit 10-20 times more murders than men. Why don't the professional feminists who talk about male violence ever talk about that?
The fact is most people are smart enough to educate themselves about various issues on their own and we don't always need to be dependent on professionals from that field. Sort of like how a lot of Catholic Priests molest children when there is probably a very tiny percentage of their congregation if any who would ever molest children, yet they are the ones at the front of the Church leading everybody in how to live avoiding sin.
Sometimes the people in the front of the room leading everybody have an agenda. Sometimes your car mechanic might be dishonest. That's why it's important to allow people to educate themselves and think for themselves rather than turning over all of their cognition to thou which has been bestowed by Govt. aka God or some such nonsense.

No, it didn't.
Nobody really cares about what bikers do at an intersection when there are no cars or people around, even cops with a donut up their butt don't seem to care.
The question is what exactly one has to have up their butt to care about what a bike does on the road when nobody is around, or what a person does that doesn't endanger anybody else.

Neither will Rori, although I still prefer McConnells it's still some pretty good ice cream.

"If they are not our children then how come I can keep them on my health insurance and can claim them as dependents?"
Because you choose to continue to support them while they continue their education.
Yes, I realize they will always be "your children" in the sense that they are your offspring, but when they are 18 they become adults.. Encouraging society to turn the age of adulthood higher than it is already is a mistake, next thing you know your kids will be keeping their 'kids' on their health insurance policy until they are 30 and everybody will have a PhD in Sociology of Reality Television.

The professor doesn't teach anybody's children, University students are adults.

To be fair, I'll bet if the shoes were reversed the Professor would have filed charges.

catskinner, "The law is the law" can be an excuse to murder untold numbers of innocent people, that's really not a good argument for anything.
Bikes should generally follow traffic laws for their own safety and consideration for others, but there's no reason why a bike needs to follow every single traffic law all of the time. If they are approaching an empty intersection with no cars coming in any direction, there is no reason why they need to come to a complete stop or stop at a light.
Beyond not needing to follow all of the laws all of the time, they also don't need to be fined as much as cars because the amount of damage they can cause others is so minimal. No bike ticket should be more than $40 and they should only be given if the biker does something that is unsafe to a pedestrian, another biker or not yielding to a car who has the right of way.
I'm not a huge advocate of government, but if you're going to employ it then there is certainly nothing wrong with using some reason and logic.

Ken, what are you talking about??
"“The U.S./Mexico Cycle: End of an Era” concludes that the days of massive legal and illegal immigration from Mexico have ended and are not likely to return. Hence, it is called “the end of an era,” according to Aracely Garcia-Granados, executive director of Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together (MATT), which conducted the study in collaboration with Southern Methodist University.
The study confirms what a Pew Hispanic Center study first reported in 2012: The net emigration of Mexicans to the United States has slowed if not reversed, and that many Mexicans residing in the United States are going back home in historic numbers."
Also, our country's only real draw has come from printing and exporting our currency, while other countries are required to use it for trading oil and other goods helping to float the price of the dollar. That's going to come to an end one day, and all of the benefits we saw over the years, importing cheap Chinese goods and such, all of that is going to reverse very quickly and we will probably become one of the poorer nations on the planet. You can thank the central bankers, they have planned this forever.

Too many cameras in TJs for foul play imo, there's usually one in the hallway to prevent shoplifting. She probably either lived with her family or close by and didn't want them to have to find her like that or perhaps a retirement community where there are preventative measures for those things. Very sad.
