Response to Do You Know Which Food Is Healthier?:
First off, practically none of these things are healthy to begin with. The quiz should really be called “which option is not as unhealthy.” Secondly, the ‘answers’ as to which alternative is ‘healthier’ are based on what many people would consider subjective means of defining ‘healthy.’ For example, in the bacon scenario, many people would much rather opt for the turkey bacon because it has much less fat than the pork bacon, despite the fact that it has more sodium and additives. It’s really a pick your poison type of deal - like with the peanut butter, do you want high fat and ‘low’ sugar or higher sugar but lower fat? This quiz should have a third option for “neither” and just eat a damn piece of fruit.
As Booker T. Washington once famously said: “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” If that doesn’t describe Al Sharpton, then I don’t know what does.
Sheâ€™s right. Burden of proof in criminal trial is â€œbeyond a reasonable doubt.â€ No one knows who initiated contact, who struck the first blow, how severe Martin was beating Zimmerman (his injuries only tell part of the story), if he actually told him he would die that night, who was on top, who was screaming etc. All of those uncertainties made it impossible to convict him of either murder or manslaughter because no one can reasonably deny the possibility that he did indeed shoot Martin in self defense due to fear for his life. Uncertainty is doubt, and doubt means an acquittal. Simple as that. Now please cover something more important like Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the IRS targeting conservatives or the AP phone record scandal.
