  1. NanuqoftheNorth added a post in a topic Ginsburg on the court decisions this year   

    I especially enjoyed the ruling about the GOP controlled Arizona Legislature being told they could not overrule the will of the citizens of that state and politically gerrymander voting districts.

    The GOP has been chomping at the bit for years to defund women's access to healthcare and contraceptives through Planned Parenthood.  This is red meat for the wingnut section of the GOP/TP.
    Conservatives apparently want to lose the women's vote in 2016.
    Can't fix stupid.

    Unfortunately things like this tend to happen in unstable areas of conflict chock full of military weapons.
    It is still unbelievable to me that this region was not designated as a No-Fly-Zone for civilian air traffic long before this incident occurred.

    Don't know whether to laugh or cry... no doubt our loving Christ child would wholly (or should that be holy) endorse a policy of unfettered access to firearms to hunt down all heretics and heathens.

    Former U.S. Marine and Baltimore police officer Michael A. Wood, Jr. made headlines when he Tweeted about the abuses he witnessed fellow Baltimore police officers perpetrating. In this interview with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur Wood reveals the truth behind the “us vs. them” siege mentality pervading urban police forces that leads to a culture of corruption, racism and abuse, and what can be done to bring change for the better to policing in the United States.

    Election reform is only important to those who value democratic principles. 
    The GOP has made it abundantly clear by their actions that they do not value our nation's democratic principles: Gerrymandering, PACs, super PACs, dark money and revising state laws in an attempt to diminish or exclude minorities and younger voters from participating in the election process.
    For republicans honoring the will of the people takes a back seat to winning control of the government.

    I believe this is where most people's empathy exists for other animals. 
    As long as we are dependent on the deaths of other sentient beings for food we can rationalize it morally. 
    It is even easier when the slaughter is out of sight out of mind.
    I have no doubt once viable meat substitutes are developed society's tolerance for slaughtering livestock will significantly diminish.

    Hmm, interesting.  So you've decided God is a sociopathic subhuman have you?  Well, I'm sure HE'LL be devastated to hear your opinion of his behavior.

    People are by and large in much better health than even just 50 years ago, many of those former Presidents were lucky to make it to the end of their terms in office without keeling over.  Others supposedly wanted to honor Washington's example of just two terms.
    Looking at the field of potential GOP presidential candidates for 2016 only Jeb would stand a realistic chance at this point of beating Obama and that is far from certain.

    Anyone here watch People's Court? 
    Wow,  we seem to have an endless supply of brain dead people incapable of managing their own relatively simple lives without getting into disputes that require a third party to intervene on their behalf.
    Now take these simpletons and add armed individuals with serious control issues and visions of grandeur.
    Add at least two generous portions of not so bright, one or more portions of lethal weapons, and a pinch of split second response time and stir vigorously.  Is is any wonder the resulting brew of not good is so unpalatable to most of us?
    Frankly, I'm amazed a lot more people are not being shot and killed in this nation of 300 million weapons.

    Excellent job dispelling the false equivalency frequently put forth by some "independents" and conservatives on this site.  
    Yes, most people have some bias, however a significant portion of those on the right in this nation have discounted subject matter experts across a wide spectrum of important issues simply because their findings do not align with conservative values.
    These people have sequestered themselves inside an echo chamber that constantly reinforces their misguided beliefs and shelters them from reality.

    Less than a zillion more than a billion...
    Over 10 billion chickens meet their maker each year in this country.
    90 billion eggs are produced each year.

    Kennedy certainly had the charisma so who knows? 
    He may not have remained so popular had the Vietnam War escalated the way it did under Johnson.
    That conflict burned out President Johnson to the point that he didn't even want the job for another four years and he was a career politician with extensive power in congress.
