    I do agree about South Africa. What was going to happen was obvious even though so many on the left pretended it would be all Kumbaya.

    However, I don't see anything like it likely to happen here....

    It can also lead to extremists primarying more moderate incumbents and nevertheless winning the general election comfortably because the seat is so safe.

    You're right except the fundies think God did the assigning.



    I see it in a slightly different fashion: Everyone has a variety of attributes. Others will evaluate these on a range from...

    I think you nailed it. Metric supporters don't have an ounce of humor! A gram of humor isn't very much.

    You realize you're describing yourself also?

    There isn't any place on Earth where that hasn't happened.[/QUOTE]

    No, concealment of intent. I figure the missile was there, it was picked up and fired before what was going on was recognized.



    The missile hit a jeep. The return fire came from a tank--they...

    I don't mind anti-welfare provisions with sponsored immigrants and with those trying to convert H1-Bs to immigrant status. However, it's not fair to apply it to refugees.

    I expect he expected them to jump out of the way and let him through. That's not the way the world works, though!

    I'm not, either. It was an obviously idiotic idea.

    Ever hear of pretext stops?

    Well, they needed probable cause to detain and perform the test in the first place. A cop can't pull you over for nothing and then decide to test substances, fishing for a crime. There is...

    This is Charlottesville round 2, except nobody died and it's a government official who did it.

    It isn't the obvious scenario unless you think the strike on the mourners at the funeral was strictly punitive because IDF soldiers were injured and killing the people responsible was insufficient...

    Donald Trump is a good example of what kind of person one can become when born rich.

    Yup, you reminded me of another such example: Heart pain. First they do the treadmill test. If that doesn't clear you they go on to the nuclear test (more than 10x the price, radiation exposure...

    The real problem is here is the delusion that a lack of jobs can be solved by incentives.

    When a place lacks jobs there's some reason companies aren't moving there to take advantage of the...

    Stereotype alert! You're assuming women don't do math.


    On the other hand, an algae bra doesn't sound too pleasant. I won't blame women for not being interested.

    Reality: For a long time those sponsoring immigrants have had to sign a document saying they would be financially liable if the person needed government aid.

    I'd say, in your evolution argument, it's more like people who accept evolution but object it being used to justify eugenics. You draw conclusions from the premise as to right action that the reality...

    You are still ignoring the obvious scenario: The "soccer players" were the shooters. That requires the minimum of assumptions but it's blasphemy to you.
