    I thought ‘undermining our culture’ was the liberal progressive platform…with Democrats leading the cultural Jihad.

    Beyond that, there are elements of immigrant culture that can revitalize and support key aspects of our own culture. Faith, family, and work ethic come readily to mind.

    There are things immigrants need time to assimilate so that they are not importing certain attitudes and assumptions that are part of the cultures they are escaping. There is good reason why ‘democratic’ reforms do not express the same fundamental ideals in countries without the same ideals and assumptions to be expressed.

    Unfortunately, there are many in the USA who are not even using the same type of English. Words we should hold in common are used with different subtext or definitions. There are Americans who do not understand or share American culture.

    You can have open borders if there are no benefits other than those you earn and pay for; if you want a welfare state, you need to have firm borders and restrictions on who is eligible for what.

    Open borders and free money ( food or other goods) for people who show up leads to Real Trouble.

    Bizarre question, but normal answer?

    That depends on what prompted the question and what exactly was meant by it. Are the people in the tower spying on others, and if so who? They should have asked earlier, and phrased the question to avoid ambiguity if it was something he would want to dodge.

    I’ll give him a look.

    Any idea that is stupid or wrong remains so, even if believed by a majority.

    A lie repeated often does not become more true.

    A minority of one can be right.

    Science is a process of questioning and testing what you think to be true…therefore, something cannot be settled AND be science.

    Lemmings make poor life coaches.

    What about the rights of girls who want locker rooms, showers, and bathrooms to be private…as in no guys wandering in with their d!(* ….

    Everyone of any gender wants laws and rules to be understandable, to make sense. Trans is mental, not physical. If someone claims they are trans, there is no way to prove it one way or another. We should be able to determine when a rule or law is being broken, or not. Bad guys do not announce their bad intentions; a rule that requires an admission of guilt to break isn’t much of a safeguard.

    The rule that allows trans in will therefore allow anyone in. People are arguing that we should allow any guy who wants to into the ladies restroom, lockers & showers; privacy has no place in the modern world. Anyone who wants to avoid running into strange guys at the local gym can go home to shower. After all, he can always just say he’s trans or something. It’s not like you have proof he is tired of paying for porn when there is a free peep show available.

    To avoid making 1 of 1,000 people uncomfortable, make almost 999 of 1,000 women uncomfortable. Trans preferences are not given equal weight, but priority over everyone else. That is the argument: that it is unfair to a minority for them to be inconvenienced or uncomfortable, so they should be able to make everyone else uncomfortable instead…or even unsafe.

    Victims of rape or sexual abuse
    will just have to deal with the micro agression of guys in their safe space.

    Exactly. The headline is insulting to the people of Arkansas, and the Clinton’s corruption is hardly unknown. The Democrats are strong there; it is practically a single party system…which lends itself to corruption. Actually, locals tend to know more about the Clinton’s than Americans in other parts of the country.

    Jctm…
    No. I was not so in love with Cruz that no one else could6 be acceptable. For the first time in a lo g while we had a wide selection of decent candidates. …in spite of that, we got a not so closet liberal progressive who has no real respect for private property except his own. I honestly do t know whether T or H would be more damaging to the country. They are both dangerous, and deeply flawed in different ways.

    Are you certain he is a lesser evil than Hillary, or do you just hope it is true? Can you convince me? My doubts are real and deep. If there is sufficient evidence, I want to believe I could be rationally persuaded by it. Unfortunately, there is significant evidence otherwise that you would have to overcome.

    What kind of a jerk are you exactly?

    Actually, I’m not sure anyone wants an answer to that question.

    They already started. I suspect some regulations exist as a make-work jobs program for in unemployable graduates. . . . I could be wrong.

    Send the kids home…no refunds. Tell them to come back after they grow up and learn how to get along with people who are not reflections of themselves and their own ideas.

  • [10] May 27, 2016 at 5:35pm

    Sometimes it seems almost as if there are people who don’t want kids to learn limits, who believe in a life without conequenes or restrant and will object to almost any sort of punishment. Spanking is declared off limits…. and even embarassment? If someone does not feel bad about being punished, then what function is served by it?

    Re : equality

    Individual variation means that in any given attribute, inherited or acquired, 2 individuals are unlikely to be “equal”.

    All human beings are equally human, regardless of gender, and have the same inherent human rights which are connected to flourishing and developing as an individual… “freedom of speech” being one of these.

    All humans can be equal under the law; this ideal is not everywhere in practice nor to the same extent even where it is held as an ideal to strive for.

    With these additions/corrections, I would agree with WEBWITHDEB.

    Publish, but name those who offered the quotes.

    picture, name, favorite quote, attributed to…
    People may hesitate to make their ‘little joke’ if they understand it may actually get in the yearbook… with their name by it. No one is censored, freedom of speech is upheld – and people think twice about how they want to be remembered.

    Look on the bright side. This election season has been so crazy, Bernie might get elected. He would have to contend with congress, and his alliances within the Dem. Party may be strained. It is questionable how he would be seen by the Democratic leadership.

    Both Bernie and Trump could be reigned in by congress more easily/effectively than H.
    Both are still dangerous, each in their own way. Congress has not tried to reign in anyone very seriously.

    I think I will still vote 3rd party.

    A trans can struggle w/ the problems of being an eccentric (harmless nut) including bathroom inconvenience, or seek help. No forced reassignment needed. Temp. confused cisgender don’t need more confusion.

    The authentically trans has no interest in raping a girl; (s)he feels that (s)he is one. Any rule that allows that person in would also allow in someone who just lies about who they are or how they feel. Follow the logic to its natural conclusion.

    Someone with bad intentions will not usually announce that. If their access to private spaces depends on being able to claim they feel feminine, how do you distinguish them from “real” trans before they hurt someone? What will stop a rapist from claiming (s)he is trans after being caught?

    Won’t trans be accused of either committing these crimes, or aiding and abetting such criminals before the fact …helping them gain access to more victims by changing rules for their own convenience…regardless of who might get hurt? How much safer and more accepted will that make trans feel?

    Trying to be ‘accomodating’ about this could get more trans assaulted -even killed:

    V.J. is wrong; vigilante justice becomes more attractive when the legal system looses respect and trust. When the government seems to be playing favorites, and the criminal justice system is enforcement for the (govt.) people in charge, and ‘ hate speech ‘ is open disagreement with those who define what ‘hate speech’ is…

    Where is Justice?
    We need her.

    LibertarianSocialist.
    If the government was getting out of the way, they would not even be discussing this.

    Government is force. The government can force you to pee in a public urinal ‘public’ being where guys and girls can be present. It is not letting people work this out for themselves if they issue laws, mandates, directives, or make receipt of something conditional on compliance.

    If anyone has the right to pass laws on this, it would be state or local. The Federal Gov. has no authority to define maleness and femaleness any more than they have the authority to redefine pi. Who goes into what bathroom is not part of their constitutionally defined authority either.

    If you believe gender is all in your head, why pass laws that require telepathy to enforce?

    If any rule at all is going to make Someone feel discriminated against or uncomfortable, then why does the smallest group have the biggest power?

    Why does emotion trump biology, except when it is the feelings of conservatives?

    The decent folks there are too boring to rate airtime…usually. Cruz stirred up some fuss when he tried to throw a spanner in the progressive agenda, or at least make a public stink and go down fighting. I am sure there are other exceptions as well.

    Your comment is largely true however. There is a lot of stupidity, corruption etc in DC. Too many problems have lasted through multiple administrations. People on both sides are getting…Something.

    What is needed is a groundswell from both parties and independents willing to vote for a return to the rule of law…even if that means voting 3rd party. The day is coming, I hope and pray.

    I am going to start being more involved in the Libertarian party. Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity…the time to prepare is now.
