All lives matter is a civil right. Aren't all lives given the same civil rights?

What problem? The made up narrative that police (including black police) are willy-nilly killing black people?
Don't you think it odd that in 2019 9 unarmed black people were killed by police and every incident made headline news but 41 other unarmed people were killed by police and none made headline news?

That has absolutely nothing to do with the conversation. But since you brought it up, no church (that I am aware of) and no Justice Of The Peace will perform a marriage ceremony for siblings, homosexual or heterosexual. Do you think that is wrong?

Yes, people are scrambling to get married just so they can have sex.

Really? I didn't know there were laws against people getting married if they are gay. Please provide a link that states that.

There are/were laws that said that a person could not marry a person of the same sex. After all, a marriage by definition, is a union between one man and one women. Therefore, as far as I know, if a gay man wants to marry a women, there is no law preventing that.

Legally, perhaps.

But ethically...well, it seems doubtful...

Well, according to Wikipedia, AOC's views include the following:

"She advocates a progressive platform that includes Medicare for All, a federal jobs guarantee, the Green New Deal, abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."

I am trying very hard to find some part of that with which I might agree...

Well aware of them, also aware of the fact that they are greatly outweighed by his failures.

look at reagan exec orders getting rid of food safety in trade
Reagan signed over 380 executive orders over eight years, perhaps you could be more specific.

What color was the "meet" "tinted"? Could you meet someone to buy green tinted meat for St. Patrick's day.

I am fully cognizant of AOC's policy views, I disagree with them because they are unbelievably stupid. That fact that she seriously defends these policy views and that they weren't put forward as some sort of joke or parody shines a very disturbing light on her intelligence.

Before the onset of the Chinese virus we the best wage growth for lower income people in 30 years. Minority unemployment was at its lowest level ever. That's how Trump's policies impacted personal economies.

Trump graciously invited Romney to meet with him during the transition. When a job offer wasn't forthcoming Romney acted as a spoiled child.

I think Trump knew that if he hired Romney, Romney would undermine him at every step.

Why is it that Salty and left are unable to see how much better the poor and low income were doing under Trump before the virus?

no, unfortunately you have to take your rights if you want them.

I have seen discrimination by cops in person, in reality, and yes it happens more frequently nowadays. In fact if you are poor without someone of substance to vouch for you, if you are a woman or women alone, or a minority some police forces treat you differently. And that is getting out of hand and needs to stop. I am in favor of retraining. or adding de escalation techniques and companion professionals (when needed).
now if you are called to a scene where some s o b is shooting up the neighborhood's people, you may need to use force forcefully but not in very situation. I think drugs and the war on drugs causes a lot of stress on cops. that needs to be looked at seriously.

yet they do marry gays. that was because gays fought for their rights like blacks and whites were forbid to marry and now they can.

boils down to cops r generally scared of black people. and the black cops want to hold the blue line. both these things need to be changed. we need everyone cop to wear a body cam and departments to keep open stats on force use.
