    But you are 100% wrong about cops needing a break. They are given a vast amount of power and therefore deserve more scrutiny than most other fields. You're not gonna get shot by an asshole in too many other jobs...at least not in the name of doing their job.

    Cop should be under massive scrutiny and receive harsh punishments when the abuse their power. The ones who cannot accept the terms are not fit for the job.
    Ok George.

    Apparently, when the cops tell you to get back in your house, you must meekly respond. Apparently when the cops tell you to be quiet, if you don't obey they mace you. Even if you're nine.
    I've been informed by folks on this board that their thankless job requires we give them a break.

    What level of insanity leads a single person, let alone two to think that that was the proper course of action. Could officer Limp Dick not have reached over and pulled her into the car enough for officer Dumb Cunt to shut the door?

    It is difficult to understand how several adults could not manage to get the door shut on a 9-year-old kid without the use of chemical weapons. Perhaps it's possible that The Gestapo was a self-created function of The Gestapo itself, and not the Third Reich, since the tendency for JBT-activity seems to arise so easily.

Perhaps that’s why Starting Strength appealed to me? It does many of those things.

    I have always been suspicious of populism. It is a form of absolute power that corrupts absolutely. We saw this with the Boy Scouts, the Catholic Church, the people involved in the #MeToo movement (though I do have some reservations on that), policing, Wall St., COVID-19, and many other modern day current affairs.
    Could you define what you mean by populism? Because none of the organizations you mentioned above seem to fit what I learned about populism.

    Musk seems to have developed some erratic tendencies that became apparent to me when he started calling one of the rescuers of the Thai kids trapped in a cave a pedophile in a fit of temper. A charge which had no support whatsoever. As it turns out, a little research on Musk shows several articles describing his tantrums.

    Well hes also shit on CNN, openly defied and criticized Gavin Newsom, told everyone to take the Red Pill, critized the government about covid protocols every step of the way and he moved the fuck out of California. Erratic or not, Is this guy not becoming a bit likeable after all of this?

    It would take a true Purist not to like Musk just a little bit.

    I've got no issue with any of that, but take a bit and do a search on something like "Elon Musk erratic." You might be surprised at the results.
