Is the psychiatrist looking for some money from some pharmaceutical company?

For many progressives, wherever free speech impedes other agendas, wherever it produces consequences liberals find discomfiting, it should give way.
Many see it as merely a means to certain ends.

+Mike Noyes ooooooh. Well, I've made this same comment many times in this issue even when not a book review. Often it's the only comment.

A Maryland man received a $50 ticket for picking raspberries. The ticket charged him with "destroying/interfering with plants to wit: berries.”

Here is yet ANOTHER example: the case of an elderly retired caucasian gentleman given a 250 dollar fine in Kirkwood, Mo late in 2014 for picking up aluminum cans that were littering the railroad right of way and public crossings.

The charge???? TREDPASSING ON RR PROPERTY!! A warning or perhaps some proritization of crimes might be in order; But not when they smell MONEY. THE DAY SHALL COME, WHEN THESE COGS OF THE BUREAUCRACY SHALL ANSWER TO THE HORDES OF PEASANTS. Encroachment upon the harmless conduct of citizens by gubmint enforcement must be stopped by removing from office those who are responsible. The only question is METHODOLOGY! THERE ARE GOOD JUDGES, many of whom would dismiss on a variety of grounds. But there are TOO MANY CORRUPT, SELF-SERVING LAWYERS who care not for their fellow countrymen and pragmatic laws and principles ; but the high-life at the country club.
Ah yes... the spoils of "public service"!!!

The study supporting the widely-cited serial campus rapist theory is seriously flawed, but some people keep making arguments based on it. I guess burying your head in the sand is easier than grappling with consequences...
A recent Atlantic article ignores the dispute over David Lisak's serial predator theory.

God, this thread is full of nutjobs. 2+2 is 5 and Aaron's got the degree to prove it! Oh, and everyone else is filled with bigotry and hate apparently.

Yep. I think we're done here.

It is unclear if Vester Lee Flanagan suffered from any form of mental illness but should he have been able to access to a firearm?
"I've been a human powder keg for a while....just waiting to go BOOM." said Flanagan.

Some one has to run the machines, has to build the machines, has to fix the machines. I run a lot of heavy equipment at that has gotten more techno every year. But it still requires an operator. Even the units that have auto dig. And now we have a tech on the job to service the GPS , com sys ,etc.
