@Weenis in this case you can do an observational study to look for an effect size. You could also try it and find out. Do states that ban expanded magazines have lower spree shooting rates? It’s possible to find out, albeit hard.
Blah blah blah, this is a test. I know nothing about guns or how to do gun studies. Or expanded magazines and shooting…[Read more]
@Weenis and it’s a horrible thing to be a leaf? Some of bernie’s policies make sense like the mutliplier effect and some don’t, like universal healthcare. what is it about me that makes you think none of my opinions hold water anyway? I’m a human being just like you and have feelings.
@Scarlett2 a balance of acceptance and criticism of substance use, shared interests, a sense of humor, emotional vulnerability, schedule availability, possible geographic proximity, and the desire to be friends. Got ideas based on that?
@Weenis the vast majority of firearm deaths are also suicides. The vast majority of shooting sprees are also not the vast majority of firearms deaths. Massacres will occur more seldom with smaller cartridges I think. Got any actual evidence to the contrary?
@Weenis hey I’m bigoted against ideologies and am not calling you an idiot. I’m secure enough in my intelligence to ignore the ad hominem since I’m engaging in some of my own. I didn’t say my parents’ childrearing was healthy and resulted in my being well adjusted, but a hard worker does not a healthy child make and a mentally ill adult out of the…[Read more]

I believe uninformed human beings shouldn’t participate in the electoral process, but I also believe we should help them stay informed,…[Read more]
@ladybarbara I’m interested in the opinion of weenis’ children upon reaching adulthood as completely fucked up human beings having thought for themselves in a manner that deeply questions his perspective. I’m interested in the opinion of their therapists and social workers and of informed CPS workers from a state outside the bible belt nor…[Read more]
@ladybarbara complete with a delusional worldview built on an ethos from before women could vote. He’s intelligent and loves his family but I’ve also seen him use his religiosity to justify callousness and inhumanity. Women can lead households plenty fine too. Consider trying it. You might be happier. Going to church every week made me a worse…[Read more]
