    The desperate attempts by persons like you to show that the kid's project wasn't really impressive (or implicitly claim that he was trying to make something that looked like a bomb that required no work) kind of get to the moral core of the American conservative movement.

    It's less about whether discrimination is logical or illogical and more about how persons who get discriminated against are worthless anyways and don't deserve to be treated with respect.

    Seriously?

    This is warped. Here's a good description of the whole story: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahmed_Mohamed_clock_incident.

    And amazingly, you think that the president being nice to a kid who went through some shit unfairly is "despicable." That shows what kind of man you are, IMO, especially in conjunction with your views on legitimately egregious violations of decency and basic humanity.

    Huh?

    When are they wrong? What is your view of putting children in concentration camps?

    Are you joking? There is nothing even a little bit impressive about taking a Walmart clock out of its case. I’m really beginning to question your sincerity here.

    The point is that it's even a topic of discussion. I don't know exactly what the kid did or if your description is accurate. And, frankly, I don't care because it's irrelevant to the fact that the kid was expelled or suspended for a science project.

    If a white kid was expelled for writing a "why American is my favorite country" essay, would you consider it unusual if the liberals' response was to look up his essay and say "wow, this is really poorly written....any schmuck could write this drivel" in order to undercut the narrative that this kid deserved to not be punished or discriminated against?

    That’s kinda where I fell on this. Anytime a news story gets nationalized with some kid in high school or lower, I find it pretty tasteless by media outlets that push it. I understand there’s usually an underlying topic to it, but your making some kid the center of it whether intentional or not.

    You just made up that this was a "science project", and this wasn't school-sanctioned. At home, the 14-year-old took a cheap store-bought clock out of its plastic case. He then put it into a pencil box. This is the sort of a thing 1st graders do all the time. Here is a photo of the result:

    The teacher says she saw the above and it scared her. Seems reasonable for someone who doesn't understand electronics to be frightened, especially in our society with its proliferation of famous bomb defusing movie scenes.

    Also, he wasn't expelled. He was suspended for three days. Without seeing the school's rules, neither of can comment intelligently about whether that suspension was justified.

    That's not even close to analogous. Writing an essay is not typically going to scare a teacher the way that a kid carrying around a beeping box full of wires might. Also, I see no evidence that anyone was "discriminated against".

    @waiguoren Remember how I said Booker would get a bump after showing off his verbal intelligence at the debate and you scoffed?

    Booker’s performance did not jump out to me as especially charismatic or impressive. But I’ve also followed Booker for years, and lived briefly in Newark shortly after he left the mayorship, so I’ve seen and heard him more than most. And it appears that normal people without much contact with Cory Booker really liked what they saw:



    Only person that made more search waves was Gabbard

    LOL.

    Combined with your clock boy post yesterday, I'm beginning to think you're a troll.

    You made an incredibly vague "prediction" about how Booker would get a "bump" post-debate. I pointed out that this "prediction" could be twisted to fit almost any scenario. For example, as long as a single poll within two months of the debate showed Booker increasing, you could claim victory.

    But now you've really outdone yourself. You don't even cite a poll. You cite Google search volume. Gabbard also got a lot of searches. Do you think this will manifest as an increase in her poll numbers?

    Here, let me show you how it's done. I predict that Booker's RCP polling average will be at least 1.5% higher on July 8 than it is now.

    I've glad you've conceded that you were stupid to call him a non-starter candidate.

    Oof, misquotation for the win? I think not.

    I claimed over a year ago Booker had no chance to be the nominee.

    After the first debate....Booker has no chance to be the nominee. 0.

    You fight oligarchy with economic populism, not more oligarchy.
