    Survey for Music Teachers!

    This is a survey for any and all music teachers on DP. I'm part of a start-up which is creating music learning software designed to supplement a music teacher, and I was hoping you kind folk could answer a few questions for me. There are only 10 questions, and it should take less than 5...

    Is Snowden a patriot?

    That program is definitely illegal. Regardless of the illegality of specific uses such as this, the program itself is constitutional because the specific uses are different from the program.

    Is Snowden a patriot?

    Because Snowden revealed we have a program that tracks metadata, not a universal wiretapping program. Completely different things.

    Is Snowden a patriot?

    There is a difference between knowing they can be tapped, and on what basis they may be tapped. The "universal wiretapping" thing is a great strawman though. You should definitely stick to that, no one will notice the lack of foundation.

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    You're not an impoverished inner city kid, though, are you? A good deal of negative media is directed towards that market, because as it was said earlier on this thread, the music often highlights problems they face. But the presented solutions( sex, violence, drugs) along with the deplorable...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    This is what we should be talking about, instead of bashing Math for doing something (whether you agree with it or not), or questioning whether he was driven by racial prejudice. It's absolutely ridiculous, this is an easy thread to have a positive discussion on, but everyone has to jump on...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) That's a wonderful absurdum fallacy. Why discuss the legality of their actions when you can ridicule someone on the internet, right?

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) No, that's a conversation that's been continuously avoided throughout this thread. I can provide you with a laundry list of post references if you'd like, but that's the conversation that's been yearning to be had. You haven't done much to facilitate that...

    It's more than a bit disingenuous to make that claim.

    An invitation: Why are you a Conservative, Liberal, Mod ....

    I'm a registered Democrat, going to UC Berkeley and I'm anticipating a career with the US Army after I graduate. I'm registered as a Dem primarily because all the candidates I like in the GOP never make it past the primary, and have absolutely no chance to do so (ie Jon Huntsman). I'm in the...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Both quotes in my post were taken from his cell records of the day he died. I don't need to judge Martin on anything in his past to come to my conclusion about him. Not to mention, we can now say that Martin was threatening Zimmerman's life with his actions, including smashing Zimmerman's head...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    FYI, Martin was suspended for truancy, graffiti, was caught with a dozen items of women's jewelry and a screw driver (described as a burglary tool), and marijuana use. He posted pictures of himself flipping off cameras, was angry about losing a fight, noting, "He got mo hits cause in da 1st...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) poweRob and you think that, so it must be true! You could go with that, or you could take a deeper look at the situation and understand that it's about issues our society has to deal with. But what am I saying, no, you're right, let's self-righteously conclude...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) I take issue with you saying I'm "defending" anything; it implies that there is something relevant to defend. Firstly, if you doubt the authenticity of the story, then there's really no point in you continuing to post in this thread. Second, my entire point is...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) I said he used the word black to derisively include what you discuss here. The progression and outcome in the scenario is entirely independent of considerations of race. Do you understand that? My entire point is, regardless of what anyone said, race is...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) My point is it doesn't matter if he used the word black to describe them, or whatever, because analysis of the scenario doesn't rely in any way shape or form. It doesn't matter what the skin tone of anyone in the situation was, the outcome would remain the same...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) Yes, I understand your position, but my point is that the entire discussion of race is irrelevant, because the initial actions of the kid were wrong by a legal standard, and set up the tension. Let me put it this way, if all characters in the scenario were...

    The next Zimmerman (almost)[W:65]

    Re: The next Zimmerman (almost) The underlined portions are what I take issue with. Your position is in essence allowing for the kids' behavior because they were behaving like any other teen. That's the problem right there, we shouldn't allow teens to do this. Specifically, the act that...
