France makes no sense.  Or rather, it makes total sense if you believe that Muslims should be allowed to be discriminated against.  I guess in that sense it’s not that different from the US.

We agree with a lot of very smart people that you should not punch down.

Some decent police officers.  Of course, this is what happens to good cops.  (Well, at least if they’re black females…)  OTOH, F the police.

And nobody was injured… I wonder what the skin color of the guy was…

Most of America’s rich think the poor have it easy.  HULK RAGE.

Scared of early retirement?

I actually tried this out in college and it worked… on one side.  Boy that was awkward.

      NPR had a thing too while I was driving home this week… but they also brought out examples in which Jewish subjects were treated one way and Muslim another in terms of being arrested (though the courts seemed to acquit properly in those cases, still an arrest = harassment).

    Bizarrely, after reading the do-not-read-the-comments article about people who thought poor people had it easy, I turned into one of those terrible people while reading the scared-of-early-retirement article. I had to remind myself that even though rich people have it easy compared to poor people, they can still have problems, and, in fact, they can still have money problems even if they are careful. (And I also know that “rich” is relative–those guys probably don’t even think they’re rich.) Whew! Got to keep those dick tendencies at bay.
