We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Deaths of suspects by action of officer is an order of magnitude higher than vice-versa, and has been increasing over the last decade.
He is conflating allofficer deaths with deaths caused by conflict with criminals, and while 539 actual shooting deaths of officers in the US over the last decade is 539 too many, we shouldn't lump in every officer death from e.g.: transport-related accidents as if that is relevant.
"Diversity—which usually means racial, religious, and sexual diversity—is commonly accepted by most administrators as crucial to the success of the 21st-century university."
This is a lie, because they don't include White (racial), Christian (religious) or Heterosexual (sexual). Diversity is defined as other than the above.
So either the 21st-century university is betting that if they get ride of those pesky descendants of Western Civilization they'll be successful or they believe White, Christian, Heterosexuals are best likely to achieve success by abandoning the American universities. I would suppose, especially, if they stop donating to the universities.
I am willing to sacrifice myself to be the test case for marriage equality, by filing the first challenge to laws banning polygamy. However, I am going to need at least one enthusiastic co-plaintiff volunteer. In order to put the most positive spin on our case, it would be preferable if she were between 18 and 25 and intellectually and otherwise endowed. The only obstacle I am going to have to overcome is getting the consent of my present spouse.
