Barbara Boxer Mugged

RE: Barbara Boxer Mugged
Where, Biker, where did -anyone- get it right away?

Frankly, I was relieved that it wasn’t worse. You seem to think that the term “right leaning” means something like raving idiot. The kind of person who might agree with you. The kind of person who sees rampant leftism in California or considers anyone to the left of uday and qusay rinos.

You’re unserious people with nothing of value to add to the national discussion.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

There is a difference between being on the social left and economic right. Arnold always supported the economic right. He ran and won on the GOP ticket to become Governor of California.

Don't confuse being for not taxing the rich with being for not being dicks to minorities. Arnold was always for "let the rich fuck everyone else".  What he never got a grasp on is how that would impact minorities. 

It is the same logic one can argue as to why "Log Cabin"  Republicans, gay republicans vote for that party. Huge difference between being on the social left and economic right. 

Why does Caitlyn Jenner vote Republican? That is my point. I don't understand it.

But you said it is 'laughable' to say to he is on the economic right. I don't understand how you can say its laughable and then go on to say it. I mean, if you want to be laughed at, I'm happy to oblige, I just don't understand how you can reconcile the two statements:

'It is laughable for anyone to claim that Arnold was on the economic right.'

and

'Arnold always supported the economic right.'

No - we just see an enduring thread dedicated to blaming Trump for everything from the war in Afghanistan to someone's recurring case of genital warts.......

But THAT'S different - right?

Wait - who blamed Trump for mugging Barbara Boxer? Was it Arnold? Couldn't have been Arnold or Trump...it was reportedly teenagers and no one is going to mistake either of those two for teenagers.

This thread is giving me a headache.

What the f are you smoking? Who the f is blaming the orange turd for the war in Afghanistan? One can certainly blame the GOP long term for bad military decisions , but nobody is claiming the former guy sent troops in originally.

And you don' t find it ironic that Boxer helped write the policies that shaped their society and raised her muggers?

Whether it's true or ironic, how is it an odd ommission from a news story about her getting mugged? If it's an omission at all, it's a very usual one since I've never seen a news story that tried to trace a causal link between the victim of a mugging and the victim's politics.

And for the record:

New Report: Lowest California Crime Rate in Recorded History
Mike Males
Published: September 9, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO – September 9, 2020 – A fact sheet released today by the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice finds that California’s crime rate fell by 3 percent in 2019 from the year prior, reaching its lowest level since the state began compiling these statistics 50 years ago. Crime rates have continued to fall steadily over the past decade amid major criminal justice reforms, including some that reduced prison and jail populations and lessened penalties for low-level offenses.

As California and the nation reckon with ongoing and historic harms caused by the justice system, declining crime trends offer an opportunity to consider steps toward inclusive community safety. These data offer an important reminder that crime is falling, not rising, which has persisted through an era of progressive policies and substantial reinvestment in communities.

California crime rates*, 2010-2019
California crime rates drop by 12 percent from 2010 to 2019.
*Total and violent offense rates exclude rape because the definition was broadened in 2014, hindering comparisons
across this period.

This isn't even a new phoenomenon:




So, to be fair, she did help contribute to the culture that changed the crime rate: because she ended up supporting policies that made it lower.

Frankly, I really want to know how Biker understands the political left and right in America. Specifically the underlying ideologies. Or how he can fundamentally ignore the fact that his views tend to have far more in common with the right than the left (and, no, being okay with drugs, feminism, abortion, and contraception does not change that if the rest of your underlying views seem to fit the ideology to a tee.) Because, frankly, what I'm getting is a cross between the paranoia and gun obsession of Timothy McVeigh and all the intellectual rigor of Sargon of Akkad.

I wonder, after Steve Scalise got shot, did news articles blame his refusal to do anything about gun control in articles about him?
"Tradition" is just a word people use to make themselves feel better about being an asshole.
