Re: New rule would let VA provide sex reassignment surgery to transgender vets

One of the greatest things I've learned over the past year is to just accept that there's no point with some people. You can explain the truth, you can give them all the information but some people...

Re: New rule would let VA provide sex reassignment surgery to transgender vets

First of all, it's for vets. It's not for active military. And secondly, gender and sex are different things entirely. Gender dysphoria is a medical condition brought on by gender role (a social...

Meditative Practices

Over the last year, I've become deeply interested and involved in meditative practices of a variety of faiths. This past May, I formally converted to Buddhism. I was blessed to practice with a monk...

Re: Broadway Union Takes Issue With ‘Hamilton’ Casting Call For ‘Non-White’ Performer

To begin, thank you for your thoughtful reply. I have very succinct responses to each of the major points you raise.

First, as to who thanked the post, I cannot help that nor can I help the...

Re: Trump Foundation admits to violating ban on ‘self-dealing,’ new filing to IRS sho

That really doesn't mean anything. First of all, he's filing the proper paperwork and there's a reason that question is in the filing. It could be anything from payment of a social event that wasn't...

Re: Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Lead Over Donald Trump Now Exceeds 1.5 Million Vot

Oh yes, because 2.4-2.7% difference is "all the attention". Your type slays me with the LOLs in your "logic".

Re: Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Lead Over Donald Trump Now Exceeds 1.5 Million Vot

FS, I'm not making this argument around the Trump win. I am not at all denying his win.

I'm simply critiquing a system that has a mechanism that isn't needed for a national office. The checks and...

Re: Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Lead Over Donald Trump Now Exceeds 1.5 Million Vot

I get that it's the way it is. Your whole argument is nothing but an appeal to tradition which is a logical fallacy and doesn't even address my point.

My argument is that it is a layer of...

Re: U of Chicago freedom of expression

Actually, a lot of people would do well to read the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Particularly the 4th, 5th, 9th and 10th steps. It's not really as mystic as all that, though I do appreciate "The...

Re: Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Lead Over Donald Trump Now Exceeds 1.5 Million Vot

How is it fair? What benefit does it serve to have an extra layer of complexity that dismisses 1.5 million votes (small number compared to the number of ballots cast but it does make a difference)...

Re: Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Lead Over Donald Trump Now Exceeds 1.5 Million Vot

Yeah, I understand how the electoral college works. I still believe it's kind of a sham. The office of president is a national, executive position chosen by the people at the national level....

A twelve inch cold cut combo sub from Subway. And maybe a cookie or two.

Re: Hillary Clinton's Popular Vote Lead Over Donald Trump Now Exceeds 1.5 Million Vot

It's not a wide enough margin to make anyone (except maybe Mikeyy) get in a tizzy over.

But, to be fair, the electoral college is kind of a sham. I mean, really...are you representing more people...

What if Trump is the reason the Hellmouth opened under Sunnydale and all the demons and vampires were set free again? Do you really think we'll get 6 more seasons of Buffy?

Re: Proof of the racism among the right (like we needed more)

This isn't racism. This is a piss poor attempt at prognostication on your part. Where's the racism? Because Obama is (half) black and Trump is (half) orange?


This is how racism starts: Mikeyy...

Re: U of Chicago freedom of expression

I have to agree with you on this. Content warnings around this type of issue are not just a good idea, it's damned near negligent not to provide them. Sexual assault and trauma survivors are NOT...

While it may be true that they probably weren't going to see it anyway, it's not really helpful to criticize their intelligence. This is a fundamental problem that liberals and democrats have;...

Re: Suck It Up Buttercup Bill

Then don't become a high ranking politician in a country where freedom to criticize the government isn't just a right, it's a part of being a citizen.

Re: Suck It Up Buttercup Bill

Trump is a big baby. If he wants to know about an unsafe night at the theater, tell him to go ask Abraham Lincoln about it and then get back to us.

Re: Suck It Up Buttercup Bill

That's what I said. What the hell are college students doing now days? When I was in college, we were too busy doing beer busts, smoking pot and studying to have time to go to a cry room.

Re: What if Trump doesn't show improvement by the end of 2017?

In reality, though, what are you going to do? What is anyone supposed to do? He was elected fair and square and the length of service is allotted at 4 years with an option to renew if the people...

Re: Oregon official who bullied Christian bakery owners loses election

I kind of agree with you on that one. The thing that gets me is that this election was just weird. Trump, in no sane dimension, should have won that election. Plus, he's going in with a majority...
