  1. Are right wingers going to secede from the Union...

    Are right wingers going to secede from the Union again?
  2. And the city of Richmond is taking down its...

    And the city of Richmond is taking down its iconic statues to confederate leaders. I never thought I'd see the day. This is super news. It's got to make the right wingeres, the rednecks and the...
  3. Right. I certainly wasn't implying that anyone...

    Right. I certainly wasn't implying that anyone was "brain damaged." If that was taken my apologies are offered. Persons who think santa or gods are real are not brain damaged anymore than a person...

    Oklahoma says We Want Medicaid

    Oklahoma Voters Approve State Medicaid Expansion

    Oklahoma is the 37th state to expand medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act. It's certainly helped a lot of red state republicans who...
  5. The overused argument is that these santa-like...

    The overused argument is that these santa-like gods are real. Show me one already. If these things were real people wouldn't make faith claims, they'd just ante up.
  6. Kids get along just fine being kids but they also...

    I'm not so sure this is a useful argument anymore imo. And the mentioning about repeating over and over the same thing in posts - Seems to be "so yesterday" and also the above is not quite accurate,...
  7. Sometimes I think Roberts' ideology is more about...

    Sometimes I think Roberts' ideology is more about preserving normalcy. He seems to sense that the court should not pitch too far right or left.
  8. Or it could be that they lack the cognitive tools...

    But if they know they lack evidence and often know there is much evidence against their belief, then either they fundamentally reject the importance of evidence for the probability of a claim, or on...

    Why? I mean really, why? To what end might it serve?[/QUOTE]

    Some people just like to use the word "arbitrarily." It makes them all giddy and happy inside.
  10. That's certainly true. Kavanaugh is actually a...

    Stability?

    A divided court doesn't convey any sense of stability.

    5/4 says The LawTM and its underlying principles are anything BUT clear.[/QUOTE]

    That's certainly true. Kavanaugh is...
  11. If a majority of people vote to re-institute poll...

    You said it should happen, not it would happen. One of them is a factual claim, the other a moral judgment. Do you stand by your moral judgment?[/QUOTE]

    Yes. If a majority of people want a statue...
  12. But these things are as much public monuments as...

    Finally, you're starting to get what we've been pointing out for ~500 posts or so. It IS broken, in many important ways. The only way a system like that responds is by forcible change. Sadly, even...
  13. Let's call it the Right Wing China Virus then.

    It probably did manifest in Wuhan, but it's looking more and more like it was around for months before it was noticed.[/QUOTE]

    Let's call it the Right Wing China Virus then.
  14. The statues and names we're discussing are...

    I don't advocate "violence in the streets" for its own sake. But there is, in this case, already violence in the streets. That is exactly what all these folks are protesting. And while you are more...
  15. You have an erroneous view of how our government...

    DBT - I am curious, what are your thoughts for the role and responsibility of those who want to keep those statues, knowing they are statues unwanted my most of society?

    Do they have a...
  16. Or it could be that we should start looking at...

    Cool story, bro about reading between the lines and drawing the wrong conclusion. Is that a tacit admission of your error or just unintended irony on your part?[/QUOTE]
    Or it could be that we...
  17. It's more important to get it right than to be...

    This is government we're talking about, of course it's broken. You think your country was established by showing up, establishing a committee and offering everyone who already lived there a free and...
  18. The Greeks invented democracy at a state level...

    The Greeks invented democracy at a state level and they owned slaves. So democracy was literally invented by slave owners, a thought that should give us pause and allow us to reflect on the current...
  19. Civil society didn't erect any of those statues...

    Civil society didn't erect any of those statues or monuments.
  20. Religious dogma and practice used to be a path to...

    My son's father, aka his genetic unit, is an extremely brainwashed Baha'i, a religion that I once respected before I realized that my ex loved his beliefs more than he loved anyone or anything else....
  21. I take that to mean you have not given up the...

    I take that to mean you have not given up the discussion but have in deed given up on any expectations. That's pretty safe.
  22. I don't think the stock casino will have anything...

    I don't think the stock casino will have anything to do with Trump's chances. He'll get reelected if enough people are unable to vote. It's certain that if voting in this country was quick and easy...
  23. I think there's been a lot of selection pressure...

    I think there's been a lot of selection pressure for Santa like belief. It's basic, emotional, doesn't require much effort, and it probably levels the playing field with regards to survival when it...

    Never heard the expression before. Can't relate to it, and it isn't because I haven't been around enough blacks.

    But I have experienced the thing where a kid is ostracized for being an achiever,...

    A fresh (picked yesterday) salad from the garden with a sprinkle of cheese, capers, kalamata olives and Italian dressing. That and some black bean burgers that didn't come out half bad. Also picked...
