Capitol “Protesters” are a Minority, So Where’s the Equivalent Treatment?

There is a ridiculous protest and storming of the US Capitol being allowed by Tronald Dump supporters. Despite trespassing into the Capitol building, the police has generally been very light in doing anything about the situation, and didn’t seem to have prepared very well for it by the light presence there. Contrast that against the much heavier response against the much more peaceful Black Lives Matter protests, which’s protesters are largely represented by minorities. I don’t know if the police recognizes it or not, but the Dumpster supporters are a minority! They lost the vote, and for all the people seen, have you looked at the crowds for any number of memorials, protests, inaugurations, and other events in Washington DC? This crowd is basically nothing compared to any of that! It is a minority in every single way you look at it. So why don’t the police treat this minority the same way they do in other protests and trespassing attempts on government buildings? Are they going to be biased on their own biases?

Definition: Law of the Indies

It should be noted that the Law of the Indies included more than the one in the tweet and podcast, but man, was this “law” brilliant!

Definition: Parkinson’s Law (for meetings)

Parkinson’s Law (for meetings)

Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.

 

In other words, if you allot an hour for a half hour meeting, there’s a good chance it will take an hour. That’s not a “law” scientifically, but research has shown this to be true more times than not.

 

From this excellent podcast on how to have better meetings.

Japanese Human Anime and Manga Facebook Picture Tagging Memes

I did not create these, but I got them on Facebook and cannot determine their creators on the Net so I don’t have links to their sources. I did touch them up to give more contrast, line-up a few things, remove advertisements from sites which stole them and advertised themselves on them, and so on. These are better than their originals. As for theme, these are Japanese anime and manga posters, but those with humans in them rather than other creatures.

Here’s how to get these graphic for your Facebook fun:

The first is Bleach or Burīchi(ブリーチ).

The second is Final Fantasy or Fainaru Fantajī (ファイナルファンタジー, ). I’ll let you figure out what it’s about if you don’t know and/or can’t guess. 🙂

The third is a Merubura (メルブラ ) set that is sometimes known in English as Melty Blood, as per the Wikipedia entry (メルティブラッド ,Meruti Buraddo), is a visual novel and fighting game, co-developed by dōjin circles Type-Moon and French-Bread, originally released at Comiket on December 2002. That English name somehow just seems like a very poor translation.

The fourth is the Street Fighter or SF (ストリートファイター ,Sutorīto Faitā) set. Guess what it’s about? Of course, I should mention there are Japanese themes not about fighting and war, like the ever gentle Hello Kitty.

The final one is a Tekken or Iron Fist (鉄拳) set. It, too, is a fighting video game.
