    WRONG...

    Our opinion is this.

    ANy cop who doesnt partake, BUT, tolerates illegal behavior from his co workers, is JUST AS BAD AS THE COP BRTEAKING THE LAW


    If you have 10 cops in a police station.

    Nine of them are amazing people. Helps their neighbors, coaches the local little league team. upstanding members in church and community, and do EVERYTHING right. One of them is a total arse. violates peoples civil rights all the time. plants evidence. Etc Etc.

    The other 9 cops know about it, but do nothing about it.


    ALL TEN policeman are BAD.

    Whats wrong with that logic?

    way to take what someone says out of context. Quote the whole thing or dont quote it at all.

    Like I said, some people on this forum believe that all policemen are bad. That is what is wrong with that logic.

    What is wrong with your logic is the claim that all the other 10 necessarily know about the one bad one .. and further - even if say one did know about it - they may not be in a position to do something about it .. life is not always so simple.

    That said - the "One bad Apple" claim is preposterous nonsense on steroids ... it is more like one good one in a sea of bad apples.

    Satan created god. Satan said I shall not serve and was cast out

    God visited Satan upon his creation to inflict suffering on all. At least his plan calls for everyone to suffer even his believers.

    Very little happens in a police department in this fashion without everyone being aware. I have known MANY police officers over the years. They always know who the "bad apple" is.

    I know several cops who walk around with what they call a "throw away" gun. So in case they shoot someone without cause, they have a gun they can plant on the scene. i mean WTF. Seriously.

    And if only one knows about it, then they report them.

    The problem then is, the OTHER cops will then leave this guy out in the cold. If he calls for backup. he likely wont get it. Police culture is in a very bad place right now.

    Why does God hate Herman Cain, Ben?

    It is embarrassing to our country when our leaders talk this way.

    Oh, he may be a good surgeon.

    But being put in huge and complex housing authority without even basic concept and terms, as housing authority he is an idiot. He didn't even prep for a congressional inquiry.

    All he knows is that it is his job from his Republican Authority is to cut their housing, whether the subjects are sick 70 year old women or children. Goverment subsidies for housing, regardless of reason, is a sin!

    You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations of those who reject me. Exodus 20:5

    If you follow conservative behaviour (as opposed to rhetoric) you will notice that this view of god fits perfectly with the 'take credit but never responsibility' attitude. Other people are responsible for bad things, never them. They only get credit for success, never reponsibility for failure.

    It was facetious. I don't. I thought everyone here would see that right away and not need it explained to them. My mistake. I shall lower the bar, just for you.

    So why is it all these high ranking Repubs catch the china flu but not so with the Dems? And dont even give me that "they wear a mask and socially distance" because we have seen plenty who dont.

    Then you don't want the correct answer, so you shouldn't ask the question.

    Everyone on earth could be hypocrites, and the obvious reason prominent republicans are getting infected would still be obvious. So that was a useless red herring and a waste of my time.

    That seems rather harsh. About 50 years ago I left the fold. Does that if one of one one of my grandchildren saw the light and decided that they could use an imaginary friend, would they still be out of luck because of my foolishness?

    I see you are a fan of projection, and very comfy here for being so new. The hypocrites dont follow their own edicts yet dont become ill. That's one smart chinese bug.

    I don't think you know how to properly use the word "projection". I didn't project anything on anyone. So now i have to question your intellectual capability, your honesty, or both.

    The fact you wont answer my question and continue projecting tells me your entire MO. Are you using a VPN now?
    Instead of debate the topic, you attempt to make me the topic. That's lame and very telling.

    I ignored your question. The reason more prominent repubs than dems are getting it is obvious and is public knowledge. So this attempt by you to paint it as something else is a desperate partisan move that serves only to waste time, as you flail on a settled issue that no serious person would waste their time trying to misrepresent.

    Sadly for losing point of 'hypocrisy', having a dinner in a open wall with space next to each diner is in fact within the scope of the suggestions.

    Not wearing a mask while eating dinner is routine, prior to last week's order for further lockdown!

    That dinner may not a "best practices" example, compared to the completely unmasked party with body hugs, cheek kissing, 1-foot face to face animated spittle fest at the Trump White House garden parties are a whole different gatherings, and therd many reasons Republicans are get COVID and Democrats leaders don't so often.
