I’m a huge fan of Bill simmons podcasts but I can’t stand when he goes all Patriots love. He’s toned it down a lot. I think he still knows his HBO show got basically canned because of the interview with Affleck. Poor choice to have his first episode basically spend 10 minutes sucking Tom Brady’s dick.
Was reading a book and found this particle reference to the Geneva Code very concerning.
Keep in mind this was written after the Nazi Concentration Camps and the US Japanese internment camps.
trump has stated the border issue is a security crisis. Not to mention his stance on middle eastern refugees. It’s scary to think that even after the millions of dead and abuse of millions others we actually have written into our Geneva code the ability for a nation to do similar things.
ARTICLE 42 [ Link ] . -- GROUNDS FOR INTERNMENT OR ASSIGNED
RESIDENCE. VOLUNTARY INTERNMENT
PARAGRAPH 1. -- SCOPE
It has already been seen that internment and the placing of a person in assigned residence are the severest measures of control that a belligerent may apply to protected persons. Article 42, paragraph 1, stipulates that recourse may only be had to these two measures when the security of the State makes it absolutely necessary.
It did not seem possible to define the expression "security of the State" in a more concrete fashion. It is thus left very largely to Governments to decide the measure of activity prejudicial to the internal or external security of the State which justifies internment or assigned residence.
[p.258] Subversive activity carried on inside the territory of a Party to the conflict or actions which are of direct assistance to an enemy Power both threaten the security of the country; a belligerent may intern people or place them in assigned residence if it has serious and legitimate reason to think that they are members of organizations whose object is to cause disturbances, or that they may seriously prejudice its security by other means, such as sabotage or espionage; the provisions of Article 5 [ Link ] of the present Convention may also be applied in such cases.
On the other hand, the mere fact that a person is a subject of an enemy Power cannot be considered as threatening the security of the country where he is living; it is not therefore a valid reason for interning him or placing him in assigned residence. To justify recourse to such measures the State must have good reason to think that the person concerned, by his activities, knowledge or qualifications, represents a real threat to its present or future security (1).
The Convention stresses the exceptional character of measures of internment and assigned residence by making their application subject to strict conditions; its object in doing this is to put an end to an abuse which occurred during the Second World War. All too often the mere fact of being an enemy subject was regarded as justifying internment. Henceforward only absolute necessity, based on the requirements of state security, can justify recourse to these two measures, and only then if security cannot be safeguarded by other, less severe means. All considerations not on this basis are strictly excluded.
Let’s talk about trubitsky after the end of next year. 2nd year in the same offense. 3rd year in the league. Big time experience this year.
Oh and btw stats don’t lie. Tru was 3rd in the league in QBR. If I’m starting a team and want a player for 5 years I want a young guy, who can make any throw, can run and scramble if need to and is built like a TE and can take some hits.
1st year offense....3rd in QBR. Every game we played he kept us in it this year. We never got into a game where I was like “well it’s over cuz no way Tru coming back from down 17”
its not a homer move. I watched all his games. I don’t want Rodgers at 36 or 37 with all his injuries.
Trubisky’s ceiling is a better Russell’s wilson. So I’m not taking him.
The rest of the hof guys are too old to consider.
