. . . And my personality is very intense once I get going which can be too much for others, but when I try to supress it I become depressed and then just isolate myself anyway. . I say, stay passionate. People sometimes admire passion even if they’re not into the particular topic, but I guess they ...

Story of my life. It was three cops who "confused" and attacked this black aspire years ago, for murder. I dodged the punch, started screaming, spent hours in jail. All the way there they were calling me stupid, saying they were gonna kill me and throw me in a ditch. Another trauma to my ...

. . . Honestly, I hate dealing with cops in general. They always become so aggressive whenever they deal with an autistic person. They think we're acting noncompliant or "suspicious", and get a power trip over putting us in our place. I have never had a "good" or even "okay...

heart-breaking, infuriating, way unnecessary.

Hopefully, the light of publicity will bring the reforms which really should be damn obvious at this point.

There is a scientific establishment as well as a media establishment, but it’s institutional, not conspiratorial. Look, I’m a believer in both the seriousness of COVID and the importance of vaccines, and yet, when a doctor shows up on a mainstream source like CNN talking about vaccines, often I’m no...

. . . Conservatives hate Nancy Pelosi because she's a filthy, hypocritical Marxist, not because she's a woman. As for Mark Schumer, he's lower-ranking: a senator, not a House Speaker. He does less damage; that's why they hate him less. . . Before January, that was true. With the R’s holding the Sen...

Police officers need to move away from the idea that “non-compliance” is some huge sin.

. . . I'm just at odds with most WP'ers' political beliefs: a hard-right conservative vs. a liberal. How long are you willing to wait? If Michigan has no governor term limits, would you wait decades until Ms. Whitmer retires? My patience has run out about a year ago, so I took back my freedom mysel...

This is best case scenario. The whole idea of forgiveness and reconciliation is a really big deal for us human beings — which is why so many religious traditions talk about it. And sometimes not just coming at it from different directions between various traditions, but often coming out it from diff...

I've considered going to see one to aid me in quitting smoking. Drinking too would be nice except I rely on the latter to mentally cope knowing that I am in actuality drinking myself to death.. physically and mentally. What if you experiment with different ways of just drinking to a pleasant buzz? ...

You’re welcome.

And I’m going to try to check out that text. It sounds interesting. :D

For all those who say the police need more training, no, I’m saying the training is a big part of the problem. They’re taught to view things in the worse possible light — okay, that one is maybe defendable. But then they’re taught that non-compliance is this huge sin. And the combo of these two is n...
