    Riots in Minneapolis

    We can't pin this all on Trump or any one party, that is way too easy to do. Stuff like this goes back decades, even centuries. Trump did not break the system, rather he is a symptom of that system that was never right in the first place. Our history as a nation has benefitted greatly from just enough people who have chosen to do just enough of the right things when they could have exploited the system even more instead. They just give us the illusion that we have a choice in how we run things and painstakingly slow progress spanning those centuries is just enough to keep enough people happy and ignorant of what we could really have

    Riots in Minneapolis

    I mentioned it before when the discussion was on education but both parties are terrible. They're two halves of the same corrupt side of the coin and they aren't as different as they appear to make themselves. Just giving us an illusion of choice is all

    All those pieces of paper you got from school and you still couldn't connect the dots yourself.

    Riots in Minneapolis

    Here is what MLK said about riots: "Certain conditions continue to exist in our society, which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality and humanity. And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention" The fact that you are so sure that court will happen and a verdict will be delivered and you speak of how "the system" should work shows that you have failed to see what's wrong with the system. How many times has this garbage happened and a court case was never even started?! Yes there are bad apples out there taking advantage but the response to the riots is by beating on the people still peacefully protesting? Go watch the videos! Several videos of rioters doing their thing unopposed while the peaceful protestors get sprayed, gassed, arrested, ran over, reporters blinded by rubber bullets, etc. These riots could have been prevented if our authority figures would do the right thing without needing Twitter to be flooded with videos making sure we keep their officers in check. And I'll throw in another quote from MLK: "I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."
  5. I currently hold a Bachelors degree and work in IT security and am looking to get a second degree in Nursing. I live in DFW area so I have quite a few choices. I should be applying to about 7 programs a year from now. Would anyone recommend applying to both RN and LVN and falling back on LVN if I don't get accepted to an RN or BSN program assuming I get accepted to LVN and not RN?
