Everybody has to make assumptions. So again, still rational and necessary.

    Another point for the public - it's perfectly rational to see a national news story and piece together your own hypothesis about what happened by making assumptions. In fact, I don't even know that's it's possible to be presented information and then turn your brain off in such a way that you wouldn't come to assumed conclusions about the information you've been given. Have you not made assumptions about the Zimmerman case?

    First, I want you to know I agree with you on most of this. However, what bothers me is that the dead can't speak. Absent witnesses, we can't know what really happened. I don't know of any way this can be changed that I would accept, but the burden does leave the dead unable to get justice if there are no witnesses.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    When the smoke cleared 53 people lay dead, 2383 people were injured, fire departments responded to 7000 fires, 3100 businesses had been damaged, and the total cost of the riots was over 1 billion dollars.

    this video includes the song from Sublime as well as footage of the riots including the beating of Reginal Deny and Rodney King asking people to get along.

    Hottest chicks always come from racial mixing. What we need is a voluntary free-spirited programme of reproductive integration.

    Man you are hell bent on race-baiting. You know there is a topic in this other than your personal hatred of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP and the idiot new black panthers that seem to dominate your posts.
