I will fully and openly admit that unions were a very needed thing that did some very good things.
That was decades ago.
These days they are a bloated bureaucratic money drain on everything they touch.

They’re called “abstracts” and they’re not ‘articles’, they’re peer reviewed research papers. If you wanted to read the whole paper, you could and the abstract tells you what you should expect to find within the paper.
What you are looking at within the abstract is a description of what the data within the paper supports.
Now keep stamping those feet and whining about why the information you don’t want to hear doesn’t count.

Sure, if you want to keep ignoring the links I’ve posted all over the thread.

Tell you what.
We’ll quadrupedal the funding for all of those things and all PP has to do is stop providing abortions.

So unless we have a monument to confederate soldiers on a college campus, we’re going to forget all about the Civil War?

Let me drop a hint for you: You don’t have any stupid creationist argument I haven’t heard before because all you’re doing is regurgitating the same garbage creationists have been saying for years.
The universe as we understand it began about 13.4 billion years ago. What was before that? We don’t know, we’re not even sure about the absolute instant of the big bang as our physics breaks down past an extremely minute fraction of a second after the big bang.
But really, here’s what you’re trying to do: You’re trying to say ‘we don’t know therefore god did it, and everything has to come from something’
Except you immediately have to turn right around and say ‘but my god gets to be exempt from my own rule’.
You do realize that back when this whole god concept was created by men, gods were very earthly right? They lived in temples, or caves, or at the top of mountains but as time moved on and we discovered more and more the gods have had to find new hiding places until we’re at the point now where we have to do something as ridiculous as move gods outside time and space itself to continue to say they’re ‘still there somewhere’.
You’re doing a god of the gaps argument. We don’t know, we can’t explain it, therefore it must be god. That argument has been used countless times for countless things and it’s always been wrong in the end. If we ever travel outside time and space, we won’t find god there either, where’s he going to hide then?

Done correctly sure, but not the same way you hug a person.

And Cruz thinks the establishment is wonderful, which is why he’s accepting their support and laughing at his supporters who continue to say he’s not part of the establishment.
Funny how that works. If you want a really good laugh do some research into his beginnings in the Republican party during the recount of 2000 and why he left Washington and went back to Texas. It will give you some context into who he really is and has always wanted to be. The Tea Party stuff was political expediency.
GET ON THE CRUZ APP AND BE THE BEST TROLL POSSIBLE WITH THUMBS DOWNS AND POINT OUT THEIR HYPOCRISY. #BlowUpCruzApp. Join the movement.
blink: Cruz also calls the Trump Patriots an “impassioned minority.” Yeah right. That’s why the “minority” is bowling the states over like dominoes.

So what, gay people should be expected to live celibate lives because…
You have a problem with them?
Let’s try that with you. I have a problem with you, be celibate your whole life.
May 1, 2016 at 12:34pm
So I’m guessing the links I’ve posted all over the thread and all of the rest of the information available out there is ‘wrong’ somehow based on… Well you just know better.

Again, you will need to prove your god is real first before your question is relevant.
And your Bible condemns and commands a lot of things you ignore, so there’s that.

Here I’ll answer for them.
‘That’s because there’s a big evil conspiracy in science to deny god, and of course all the evidence that I won’t show you supports my god and not any other god’

No, it’s not irrelevant. You cannot compare consenting sexual behavior between adults and an adult raping a child. You wouldn’t even think about doing that if it were a heterosexual couple, consider what that says about you.
And why should they ‘shut up’ about it and keep it behind closed doors? Other than the fact that you’re insecure? How about you shut up and keep your “Christianity” behind closed doors? I don’t approve of you after all, whether it’s your religion or your personal life or whatever, you should just shut up and quit expecting me to think you’re normal.
Let me guess, now it’s “hateful”?

All the way back to pre-revolutionary war, Christians were quite happily persecuted even each other for being the wrong kind of Christian. That’s the part they leave out of ‘fled religious persecution’ history, the fact that they continued to do it after they got here.
One of the ways in which we got more people to fight against the British in the Revolutionary War was by promising to put an end to that, which we did with the 1st Amendment.
Anytime an atheist speaks up or speaks out in this country in a way Christians don’t like, you can count on them to be met with threats and harassment. There are atheists who live in fear of what their parents will do if they ‘found out’, there are atheists who live in fear of losing marriages and children if their spouse ‘found out’, there are atheists who live in fear of losing friends and communities to which they belong if they are ‘found out’. I know, I talk to these people, I have for years.
And until recently, atheists didn’t dare let anyone know, as a teacher in NC found out a few years ago when he was outed as an atheist due to youtube and students/staff immediately began to harass him.
Then we come to the long standing persecution of homosexuality, which I note you’ve been keen on helping along in subtle ways, which is entirely based on religious ideas.
And like it or not, groups like the KKK and people who share their attitudes? Proudly Christian.

His children go to Harvard and he makes millions, yet the OWS crowd pretend he’s one of the 99% along with them.
