How does Rickey Schroeder still have that much money? 

You are clearly underestimating the cash cow entertainment juggernaut that was the series Silver Spoons.

Although I myself tuned in only for Erin Gray.

I can't help but feel sorry for this Rittenhouse kid.  He ate up the conservative narrative and it led him to literally fighting the liberal narrative.  He's going to a good portion of the beginning of his adult life in prison and after the conservative narrative led him to that life, they are propping him up and continuing to use him as a pawn.  Wonder how many of them will be around when he's trying to get parole in 20 years.

You can’t help but feel sorry for someone that went looking for a fight and murdered 2 people?

Not really sure he went looking for a fight, he was running away right before each shooting. He bought into the narrative that he needed to help his fellow citizens from having their businesses destroyed.  Just as many have bought into the narrative that African Americans are being hunted by police and folks need to riot to show how upset they are.  He's just a pawn in their game and he's too ignorant to realize it.  At some point, he's going to wake up and realize how much he screwed up, and like I said, no one is going to be there for him anymore either.

This is the chap who's 17, yeah? Lots of 17 year olds seem like they might not quite be the finished human being. If he's been manipulated then I'd feel a bit "sorry" for the bloke.

I can see feeling bad for the kid that he got hoodwinked, like millions of other miseducated weak-minded individuals. But that should not mitigate the fact that he must pay the full price for his deed, and, frankly, as an adult.

well for sure there is enough brain research that shows that there is more volatility in the the judgment of young adults, but  on the other hand, I also think that in the last generation or so, the US in particular has pretty much forgotten about teaching teenagers that life is serious business and I think that lack of countervailing knowledge/experience to counter-balance that volatile judgment is at least as large an overall effect.

Exactly, but odd enough, if he was another year older and lived a few miles north, he might not face any time.

He's a brainless **** who murdered two people.

I have no ******* sympathy whatsoever and hope he rots away to nothing in prison.

Fixed that for you.

I really can't argue with you on your feelings.  "Do stupid things, win stupid prizes" is a phrase that matches up with Rittenhouse, and that entire exchange that night, perfectly.  If it comes out that the one guy did sexually assault a minor, I hope he doesn't get any prison time for that one though, lack of sympathy from me on that one (if true).

We'll see what comes out in court. 

The second death may be voluntary manslaughter.

But I'm not so certain about the first one.

And there will be additional weapons and other charges to go along with that...

Thank you Amy and company for creating more Super Spreader events

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/supreme-court-relieves-religious-organizations-from-some-covid-related-restrictions/2020/11/26/305f0094-2fa6-11eb-860d-f7999599cbc2_story.html

Quote

The Supreme Court’s new conservative majority late Wednesday night sided with religious organizations in New York that said they were illegally targeted by pandemic-related restrictions imposed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to combat spiking coronavirus cases.

 

The 5-to-4 order was the first show of solidified conservative strength on the court since the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, whom President Trump chose to replace liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her death in September. The decision differed from the court’s previous practice of deferring to local officials on pandemic-related restrictions, even in the area of constitutionally protected religious rights.

“Even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten,” said the unsigned opinion granting a stay of the state’s orders. “The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty.”

Well..... bless their hearts! (While I know this is a southern sarcastic remark, I’ll hijack it today and claim I can because I’ve been known to frequent the south... Bronx. The south Bronx.)

How utterly.... um.... unhelpful and dangerous.

Is it activism on the part of SCOTUS to uphold the constitution?  Some Churches can certainly be more sensible (masks, shared communion cup, etc)  but we need to jealously guard our Constitutional rights.  All of them.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

They could exercise their Constitutional rights by holding Zoom services.

It was a limit on the number present at the time. So, if your service had normally, let’s say 200 people, and now they’re limited to 20, I suppose thee church, synagogue, mosque could offer 10 services that day, by assignment. It would be **** for them...but that’s kind of their calling, isn’t it?

(not going to bring in the zoom solution for my argument)

My point being, calling this “barring” from attending services, is giving the church, synagogue, mosque a pass at their working on an interim solution.

Good luck to the nurses, therapists, doctors, and hospitals in these districts in the coming weeks.

People are going to die that didn’t have to. And many will be in the healthcare workers field.

This is a form of rights absolutism that is just wrong.

Granting that churches do have the right for their members as consenting adults to engage in behavior that is dangerous to their own life (refusal of a blood transfusion) they have also NEVER had the right to kill 3rd parties by their practices - e.g. minor children of Christian Scientists or Jehovah's witnesses. My response would be that any religious practitioner should be free to exercise in a way that is dangerous to the public health of others as long as they are required to do it in complete isolation from the rest of society. The Hasidim and Catholics or Evangelicals that don't want to comply with public health rules should be required to quarantine themselves in return. The first and fundamental of ALL RIGHTS secured by the system is LIFE.

Like EVERY other right, the bound on religious liberty sits exactly where it impinges on someone else's right to exercise LIFE. This is absolutely no different than the speech right being properly limited by the  crying 'fire' in a theatre logic.

^ this.

Not just for this, but for many other things that people have the "right" to do

(sorry, bad day at work: crowded building, no ventilation and obnoxious teenagers who express that they have a right to do something...)

The restrictions do anything to prohibit anybody’s religion. It applied the same restrictions to churches as it did to restaurants and other businesses. You can still worship your god.

Continuing their tradition of being “pro life” until birth. Then it’s every man for themselves.  Bunch of hypocrites actually.
