Yes, you can be too progressive just like you can be too conservative.

I'll take politically split executive and legislative branches. The balance makes for better governance.

The people that are too progressive want everyone to have free healthcare. The people that are too conservative want a white ethnostate.

Not The Onion.

CONROE, Texas (KTRK) -- Some Conroe ISD trustees want to crack down on displays of racial inclusivity and pride, saying they represent, "symbols of personal ideologies."
One trustee says a child was traumatized by a poster showing different colored children holding hands and had to switch classrooms.

Using your measure of people's beliefs you could also say:

People who are too conservative don't want the government to raise children. The people who are too progressive want private property to be disallowed.

Both your statement and mine are true.

I think that what the trustee meant to say is that the child’s ignorant parents were traumatized.

From the WSJ:

Wall Street firms are raising billions to scoop up commercial real estate on the cheap.

They aim to acquire office buildings, apartments and other troubled assets whose values have plummeted as a result of interest rate hikes, sluggish return-to-office rates and other market conditions. Until recently, most sellers haven’t been willing to cut their prices to the levels that buyers are demanding, but that’s changing. Meanwhile, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway made a fresh bet worth more than $800 million on U.S. homebuilders.

Blackstone Names Harper BREIT President While Agarwal Goes on Leave
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-08-15/blackstone-names-harper-breit-president-as-agarwal-goes-on-leave

Blackstone Inc.’s $68 billion real estate trust said its president A.J. Agarwal will go on a sabbatical for nine months and Rob Harper will fill that role.

Blackstone built BREIT into a massive player in the real estate industry, but the trust’s growth streak has come under pressure in recent months as investors sought to pull money when rising interest rates prompted a global flight for cash. BREIT has limited withdrawals for nine consecutive months to avoid forced sales, but the redemption queue has been easing recently.

From the Wall Street Journal, under the headline, "A Montana town faces a homelessness problem similar to San Francisco and L.A.":

Some 600 people without homes live in the Northern Rockies college town of Missoula, triple the number of a decade ago, many of them in tents in city parks. Missoula has a law against camping in a park but can’t enforce it because of a 2018 ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which prevents officials from removing anyone camping in a public space in its Western U.S. jurisdiction unless there is a shelter for them to move to. Missoula has less than half the beds that would be necessary to comply with the order, most of which are already being used.

Cities are run by mayors of all types and have the same problems. Cities have had these problems since before the parties and democratic elections even existed.

If you think this is new, you are a poor student of history.

And she wanted to get rid of the guns on the streets. Seems she was on the right track.


In her words ... Look at my face in the picture. This is the face of a mother who just had the [expletive] beaten out of her

The old saying is a conservative is a liberal that was mugged.  And now that she has been mugged .... her words again:

"These men knew what they were doing. I have NO DOUBT they have done this before. Yet they are still on OUR STREETS. Killing mothers. Giving babies psychological trauma that a lifetime of therapy cannot erase. With no hesitation and no remorse," Ms. Sathanandan wrote.

"I'm now part of the statistics. I wasn't silent when I fought these men to save my life and my babies, and I won't be silent now. We need to get illegal guns off of our streets, catch these young people who are running wild creating chaos across our city, and HOLD THEM IN CUSTODY AND PROSECUTE THEM," she said.

Look at my face. REMEMBER ME when you are thinking about supporting letting juveniles and young people out of custody to roam our streets instead of HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS,"

---

I 100% agree with her. And to do this is easy to figure out. You need cops.

In a post on Facebook at the height of the BLM protests taking place throughout the country, sparked by the death of George Floyd while in police custody, Ms. Sathanandan wrote: "We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. Say it with me. DISMANTLE The Minneapolis Police Department.

"MPD has systematically failed the Black Community, they have failed ALL OF US. It's time to build a new infrastructure that works for ALL communities," she wrote. "If you are still disagreeing with that BASIC FACT, I'm not sure what to say to you."

-----

HL Mencken wrote Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

See just got her policies good and hard.

  synonyms for dismantle-knock down, disassemble, take apart, tear down, deconstruct

nothing in there about "reform"

  synonyms-rehabilitate, improve, make better, ameliorate,


why can't you just say these people are dumb, wrong and destructive.  it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to predict what could go wrong with their ideas of "reforming" the police.  while you guys back these social experiments, many many innocent people died.  she obviously either couldn't afford her own security force or gave them the day off

Maybe read beyond the headline dimwit:

“Today the Minneapolis City Council has an emergency hearing to approve a court order outlining immediate changes for MPD and a framework for systematic change.”

I think her language was over the top. But she didn’t want to get rid of the police. Very few ever wanted to go that far.

Actually, although they don't use the exact phrase "get guns off streets," the International Association of Chiefs of Police very much wants significant gun-safety legislation to be passed - including a national assault-weapons ban, waiting periods for gun purchases, closing the gun-show loophole, making bump stocks illegal, and a tightening of concealed carry laws.

https://www.theiacp.org/sites/default/files/2019-05/IACP%20Firearms%20Position%20Paper_2018%20(1).pdf

In other words, police want the kind of common-sense gun-safety laws that poll after poll after poll show the vast majority of Americans want.

But Americans can't get the laws Americans want because one of America's political parties is deep in the pockets of the gun lobby.

I have said it numerous times. Do NOT believe the polls.

A decent percentage of those people will vote for the candidate who wants to put the most guns on the streets. To anyone. Anywhere.

Whatever she advocated for was not enacted.  In fact, the Minneapolis police budget has grown since 2020. So, no,  it was not a consequence of anything she said. 

Beyond that, if course, is the asinine attempt to link her victimization to her political views. Like, what, the Blue Lives Matter crowd never experiences crime?

But glad you guys cheer the beating of a woman because she doesn't share your political views.

And when you pretend that public safety workers and counselors can take the place of the police, you put people at risk of getting the sh!t beat of them.

Did she say she was a conservative, "bloodthirsty" or otherwise? Maybe she did; I don't know. What you posted doesn't say that.

Did she say she was wrong about her foolish call to "dismantle the police"? It would be good if she did.

Do you believe that all Democrats want to "dismantle the police"? If so, do you also believe that all Republicans hate the police because the guy who has co-opted the GOP proclaimed his "love" for the cop-bashing 1/6/21 "terrorists" (Ted Cruz's word)?

Why are you cheering injuries suffered by a fellow human being?

Then why do you minimize the horrific assault of police by terrorists (Ted Cruz's word) at the Capitol on 1/6/21?

Why do you support a presidential candidate who considers those vicious, seditious, convicted felons to be "heroes" whom he "loves"?

Then why do you minimize the horrific assault of police by terrorists (Ted Cruz's word) at the Capitol on 1/6/21?

Why do you support a presidential candidate who considers those vicious, seditious, convicted felons to be "heroes" whom he "loves"?

  when you guys admit to the fact that all of your riots for days on end were as bad if not worse, then maybe we can have a discussion.  the riots were way more costly in terms of money, injuries, deaths than the capital uprising was

After students are robbed in weekend crime spree, DePaul acknowledges ‘sad reality’ of Chicago crime
https://cwbchicago.com/2023/09/after-students-are-robbed-in-weekend-crime-spree-depaul-acknowledges-sad-reality-of-chicago-crime.html

After several DePaul University students were targeted in a robbery spree across the school’s Lincoln Park campus, university officials issued a statement on Saturday acknowledging the “sad reality” of criminal activity in Chicago.

“Chicago continues to face ongoing challenges with criminal activity across the city. We must acknowledge this sad reality and respond accordingly,” President Robert L. Manuel wrote.

His message came hours after several of the school’s students fell victim to a robbery crew that swept through campus beginning around 1:15 a.m. Saturday.

Three women, two 20-year-olds and a 19-year-old, were walking in the 2200 block of North Sheffield when three men emerged from an alley. They battered and robbed the victims, taking wallets, phones, and purses, before escaping in a red SUV. An officer at the scene said the suspects were three Black men in their mid-20s. One had facial hair, and another wore an orange winter cap.

At about the same time, two 19-year-old women were robbed in the 900 block of West Fullerton near the Fullerton CTA station.

Yet another woman was robbed as she tried to enter her residence, a DePaul-affiliated apartment complex in the 1200 block of West Fullerton. Officers said a red SUV was involved in that robbery, too.

A fourth holdup was reported in the 1700 block of North Clybourn, but it’s unclear if that victim has any links to DePaul.

----

Robbery crews also targeted DePaul’s campus in the spring.

* A 37-year-old woman was carjacked by two men who implied they had weapons at 11:39 p.m. on May 29, police said. She was getting into her car in the 2300 block of North Halsted, directly in front of DePaul’s School of Music building, when they took her black Volkswagen Jetta.

* Two DePaul students, ages 19 and 20, were robbed at gunpoint in the 1300 block of West Fullerton around 4:15 a.m. on May 29. The men were walking when two offenders exited a black car to rob them. After the holdup, the victims went to University Hall, a DePaul residence hall, and a security officer called 911, identifying them as students.

* A 19-year-old DePaul student was robbed in the 2200 block of North Lincoln around 4:30 p.m. on June 12. He told police that the robber implied that he had a gun and demanded his property, which the victim turned over. Two women were also robbed in the area around the same time.

  when you guys admit to the fact that all of your riots for days on end were as bad if not worse, then maybe we can have a discussion.  the riots were way more costly in terms of money, injuries, deaths than the capital uprising was

Even your deflections are weak, but sure, I'll play and talk about "my riots" ...

Then-candidate Biden repeatedly condemned violence and looting associated with the racial-equity protests. For example, less than a week after George Floyd was publicly executed by white cops, Biden said this: “Protesting such brutality is right and necessary. It’s an utterly American response. But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not.”

Meanwhile, given the opportunity to condemn the Proud Boys and other violent, racist, hate-filled militia groups, the then-president told them to "stand back and stand by." And they stood by ... until answering his call to attack our country's seat of democracy, a seditious act that resulted in nearly 150 police officers getting injured.

I (and many other Scoopers) have stated repeatedly that those who took advantage of the racial-equity protests to commit crimes should be tried and, if convicted, sent to prison.

You, on the other hand, shrug your shoulders at one of the most heinous acts in American history - an assault on our country at the behest of the sitting president. And you will happily vote for a candidate who has made pardoning these violent, cop-bashing felons part of his campaign platform.

So again, Mr. Cops Have My Utmost Respect:

Why do you minimize the horrific assault of police by terrorists at the Capitol on 1/6/21?

Why do you support a politician who considers those vicious, seditious, convicted, cop-injuring felons to be "heroes" whom he "loves"?

Wait, didn't you just say there was no coverage? Now there was coverage, but with a "large deductible"  ... in the millions?
Whichever story you choose, isn't it simply the result of the business owner's chosen policy? Either the business owner made a questionable decision to exclude coverage that's standard for the industry, or the business owner chose a policy that set deductibles "in the millions."
Either way, poor decisionmaking.

Riots were bad. 1/6 was worse. Sorry you hate America.

Riots burned and destroyed businesses and caused enormous losses and injured police   These riots were far worse than most people walking through the Capitol building. I watched the video live as it unfolded but for some reason we can’t see the countless hours recorded but withheld to see for ourselves. Just propaganda not the ability to see for ourselves

Hopefully, not before roQQet - who has "utmost respect" for cops, answers the questions he keeps avoiding:

Why do you minimize the horrific assault of police by terrorists at the Capitol on 1/6/21?

Why do you support a politician who considers those vicious, seditious, convicted, cop-injuring felons to be "heroes" whom he "loves"?
