Re: A country full of cowboys.

Years ago we watched a cop TV show. The kids who watched it are now adults. Each episode began the same way, a daily meeting of cops with their boss. At the end of the meeting, the boss told the cops to go home safe at the end of the day. Dramatic delivery, of course. ... Go home safe. You mean Hil...

Apparently the Minnesota police use things called Glocks or S&W (Military).

Look at what they did to it.
To tell the truth I have no idea what you are talking about?

Re: A country full of cowboys.

Neither did Johnson create the welfare state but he set the course for making it a monolith of a paradigm. The ascension of progressivism via Johnson with the complicit orgy of social engineering has created dependency in the population, at all levels from rich to poor. Follow the adventures of Mus...

Some accident though as apparently she was talking to the driver and he shot her several times from the passenger seat across his partner.

Your police kill regularly more of your citizens than terrorists ever have.

Re: A country full of cowboys.

I thought it the Bush administration that started the militarisation of your 'police' force. All black and white cars, no protect and serve logos, full-access to military spec weaponry, using tactical forces to deal with what used to be routine tasks, etc and federal funding withheld for non-complia...

Re: Certainty always better than probability?

Can you explain the computing application - I'm not being argumentative, I really want to know. It was a couple of decades ago when I was there but they were working on deontic, epistemic and temporal modal logics as applied to AI and Software Engineering with respect to program verification, robot...

Re: How would you cheer up Harbal?

Being British/English is a burden some of us have to bear and we do it with humour by and large.

There's a saying, "Having a sense of humour is optional for the rest of the world, for the British it is obligatory"(apologies to the Ockers).

Re: Does it turn you on...

World conquest would be a rather new philosophy for China hiding behind their Great Wall, visible from orbit, as seen by jumping the wall and gobbling up Tibet for the natural resources required to manufacture junk, a relatively new event for an ancient land. ...

Re: Certainty always better than probability?

Name one problem analytical philosophy has solved ... A fair point but in general I'd say analytic philosophy is about clarifying or asking questions rather than answering them and that generally results in the original question being discarded. or one useful application of modal logic.
