Responses to the Rittenhouse verdict

Higher taxes over mean tweets. Right on!

I would argue Trump’s failings were more than mean tweets. But that’s a different thread. And higher taxes? Not really an issue for me. Rittenhouse? For those on this thread who don’t understand: it’s possible for the system to work perfectly well and render an unfavorable result.

So you want to abolish self defense or what?

Huh? Don’t know what that is in response to.

What unfavorable result were you referring to? A kid getting off because he was defending his life is not an unfavorable result.

How are higher taxes not an issue for you?

What was “unfavorable” about the Rittenhouse verdict?

I am speaking generally. I have not stated whether I approve of the Rittenhouse verdict or not. Mostly because I was not in the room hearing testimony, lawyers and jury instructions. I am speaking about all jury outcomes. Ritttenhouse, Arbery. Zimmerman. If a jury is fairly selected and there are no procedural errors or judicial tampering, then I accept the verdict, like it or not.

Rittenhouse? I replied to Zantax the same question. Taxes? Higher taxes have been a multi-century issue. I’ve said this before: ideally, theoretically, I’m for a flat rate income tax. But no one since Forbes talks much about that.

If not, to which verdict do you refer?

You voted for higher taxes last November.

Kyle should have spent more time at the gun range over the years.

Didn’t do too bad, he got Huber in the heart with a hip shot from the ground, fired four in less than a second at Rosenscum and disabled the hand of drunk guy.

Yes, in effect. But what options are we given in a two party system requiring millions upon millions from each candidate to even sign the form? Nobody gets everything they want in a candidate. Generally my approach is to vote for the least ■■■■■■-like.

And as for the Dems? I’m less concerned about their taxation policy than their spending. Absurd.[quote=“zantax, post:152, topic:240744, full:true”]

Wow. Kinda tough crowd today. A lefty like me says ‘unfavorable result’ and it’s assumed I mean KR’s verdict. Actually, not at all. I, unlike many here, trust our systems: justice, elections, intelligence (within reason). KR’s verdict, if jury selection was fair, no procedural errors or judicial tampering, stands. Simple.

Wow, you trust Us intel, wake up.

When a lefty like you is talking about the Rittenhouse trial and says “unfavorable results,” what conclusions do you expect people to make?

Yes, that’s a natural conclusion. It’s a lense. We all have them.

If I could read your mind I wouldn’t need lenses.

I try to be clear in my writing. Fail sometimes. But when I say something meant to be objective and detached (it was), I need to remember I’m on what is, for the most part, a partisan site, and should be extra careful.
