Consider an eighteen-year-old male playing craps.

Since this person is too young to play legally in a casino, he is participating in an illegal game in an alley in Chicago.

Young man shakes the dice, throws and the result is 5 on one cube, 3 on the other.

Let us use inference to discover some truths about such an event.

By assertion, there are approximately 300 million other sets of dice in existence, each owned by a different individual; some being played with in various games that feature such dice, most are static, sitting a drawer or in a pocket.

Some of the other sets of dice are owned by person eighteen-years-old or younger.

Does the existence of sets of dice other than that set being used by the particular eighteen-year-old that threw 5 on one die, 3 on the other in an illegal game of chance affect that result?

Does the age of the owners of the other sets of dice other than that set being used by the particular eighteen-year-old that threw 5 on one die, 3 on the other in an illegal game of chance affect that result?

Does the sex or gender-identity of particular eighteen-year-old that threw 5 on one die, 3 on the other in an illegal game of chance affect that result?

Does the sex or proclaimed sexual orientation  of the owners of the other sets of dice other than that set being used by the particular eighteen-year-old that threw 5 on one die, 3 on the other in an illegal game of chance affect that result?

Does the fact that there are other games of craps being conducted, both legal and illegal, with portions of the global dice inventory in addition to that game that the particular eighteen-year-old that threw 5 on one die, 3 on the other in an illegal game of chance affect that result?

Does a speech by a semi-famous Hollywood actor ensure that, in the future,  any given set of dice wielded by any given eighteen-year-old, whether in a legal or illegal game,  result in 5 on one cube, 3 on the other?

Logic  demands that the answer to all of the above is no.

Not possible.

Irrelevant to the event in question.

Introducing such extraneous factors that have no rational effect and cannot have an effect on the event in question is bordering on the absurd.

Yes, it is too long, don't read.  :biggrin:

 

NB when Mr. McConaughey made his impassioned plea to 'we're all Americans, we must all get along,' he is saying that everyone must agree with him and his masters or you oppose solidarity, nay, you deny democracy.

 

So, there.

A properly executed example of how to protect school children.

GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) — 6.9.2022. A man who tried to enter an Alabama elementary school where a summer program was being held was shot to death by police Thursday morning, authorities said.
Gadsden City Schools Superintendent Tony Reddick told reporters that a “potential intruder” went to several doors trying to get into Walnut Park Elementary School, where a summer literacy program was being conducted for 34 children. All the exterior doors were locked and the principal contacted the school resource officer when she realized what was happening, Reddick said.
The resource officer confronted a person who attempted to break into a marked Rainbow City police car near the school, according to a statement from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. More officers from the Gadsden Police Department showed up to assist, the statement said.
The person was shot to death after resisting and trying to take the resource officer's gun, the agency said. The statement, which didn't mention any attempt to enter the school, didn't say how many shots were fired or by whom.
The state identified the dead man as Robert Tyler White, 32, of Bunnlevel, North Carolina. Officials don’t know whether the man was a "passerby" or something else, Reddick said.
Authorities didn’t immediately release details including whether White was armed or why he might have been trying to get into the school or patrol car.
While the resource officer suffered minor injuries, no students were hurt and most didn't realize anything unusual had happened, Reddick said.
“Our primary concern was just making sure that someone who wasn't authorized to be in our building does not enter and our kids are safe,” he said.
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey sent a tweet saying school police “immediately took action, faculty inside the building followed safety protocols and all children present were kept out of harm’s way.”
“I commend all involved for acting quickly to protect these children,” it said.
Gadsden is about 60 miles northeast of Birmingham.

Evolving Clusterf**k.

Nancy Pelosi’s husband killed his brother in 1957 car crash.
Details of the fatal wreck emerged in the wake of Paul’s arrest following his alleged drunken crash in Napa Valley on Saturday night.
Paul, who has been married to the House speaker since 1963, was charged with one count of driving under the influence and another for driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher. Both charges are misdemeanors.

The Fence Test
You can't get any more accurate than this!
This is straight forward country thinking.
by Jeff Foxworthy
 
Which side of the fence?
If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
*****************************************************************************
 
If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
 
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
=============
If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. 
 
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
=============
If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
 
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
=============
If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
 
If a Democrat is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.
=============
If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
 
A Democrat demands that those they don't like be shut down.
=============
If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
 
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.
=============
If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
 
If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.
==============
If a Republican is unhappy with an election, he grumbles and goes to work the next day.
 
If a Democrat is unhappy with an election, he burns down a Starbucks, throws rocks at cops and takes two-weeks off for therapy.
===============
If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
 
A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended."
 
Well, I forwarded it
