    The Gemara said a great many things that does not comport with now-known facts: most well-known is that the sun revolves around the earth, but there are many other examples as well. When confronted with this, one has two options: One, say that the Gemara was wrong, or Two, try to interpret the untrue statements in a way that matches now-known facts. It would be ludicrous, however, to insist that the literal reading is correct and the sun does revolve around the earth.
    The same is true here. Nashim Da’tan Kalos cannot mean that the female intelligence is in any way inferior to male intelligence because it simply is not supported; to the contrary, women excel in the fields of medicine, law, and business. So, we have two options, we can say that the Gemara was referring to women in the times of the Talmud who were largely uneducated and were not given the chance to develop their intelligence, or we can interpret that statement in some other way. But it would be ludicrous to give that statement any literal translation.

    Ha! So women should stay home because men are too weak and likely to become addicted? OMG.
    Why should the goal be that men should earn more money?

    “prosecutors don’t convict anyone, only the judge or jury (if there is one can do that.”

    Your statement is accurate, but it is misleading. Prosecutors are the gatekeepers of our justice system. Selective prosecution allows a prosecutor to “ruin” lives by prosecuting a person for a crime that would never otherwise be prosecuted. It can also cut the other way, i.e. a prosecutor can choose not to prosecute someone that would otherwise be prosecuted. An example of this would be the horribly misguided Larry Krasner choosing to not prosecute certain alleged murderers for first degree murder. Another example would be a prosecutor going after a person for minor tax fraud in an effort to create pressure on a bigger fish.

    While prosecutors don’t convict anyone, it is utterly naïve to think that they are an extension of lady justice. They are the gatekeepers of the justice system and they can keep someone out, or force an otherwise “normal” person in.

    Democrats are not pro life, they kill millions of baby every year.
    The Obama administration began the Yemen campaign to prop up the Iranian government, funny how you say Trump “continues” to support, completely disregarding the one who began the support.
    Pro-immigration is the self-righteous baloney that the democrats spout to make them feel good.
