That's really not a very rational response to this...you are essentially saying that people are religious, but just not religious enough.
A better way to look at this is that cultures that spend all their time worrying about what some unknown and unknowable being will reward them with after they die have little concern for the lives of people in the here and now...
LibertarianSocialist.... just like China, with it's official atheism, cares so much about human rights?
@CedarTree – China does not have a state religion (“official atheism” as you claim), China’s main religions are Taoism, Confucianism, Islam and Christianity. Also “Article 36 Citizens of the People’s Republic of China enjoy freedom of religious belief. No State organ, public organization or individual may compel citizens to believe in, or not to believe in, any religion; nor may they discriminate against citizens who believe in, or do not believe in, any religion.”
You're operating under a false generalization used to promote the idea that atheism is an instrument to subjugate populations.

Yeah, that was called the graveyard shift. One person would stay overnight listening for the bells. Happened alot during the plagues in Europe.
Not to be a revisionist ass on your brief historical explanation, but the "Black death" of the Middle ages created such a vast body count and since it was shrouded in mysticism and supersticion the only sure thing the survivors knew was consuming the piles of bodies and their bedding in large fires at the edge of town did lessen the numbers of those newly sickened.
Some of the following global pandemics like cholera or influenza outbreaks, may indeed caused persons to appear to be deceased with very shallow breathing.
However the flea borne infested rats which carried bubonic plague and the large oozing boils- pusstules, on the victims left no doubt as to it being terminal. Premature internment or not.
A person of means would be interred in a proper grave[family plot] with a bell in a graveyard which was typically property of the local church.
A church sexton[head gravedigger] would be the one in charge, and subordinates would be assigned late night "listening duty."
Now just add some faus fog, some creepy pipe organ music and America's #1 TV hooror guy: Svenghoulie!

Megyn Kelly is beginning to show her true colors. She’ll be on MSNBC pretty soon where she doesn’t have to hide her liberal bias.
It’s not so much her having a liberal bias, it’s about torpedoing anyone who is a threat to Fox’s fair-haired boy…Jeb Bush. Fox and the Republican establishment want Jeb so bad it is pathetic. Jeb is a panty waist and he is the last thing we need.

Its actually true. Why are we not able to state facts??? Shilling should have stood his ground. Remember what Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” That minority can also set brushfires of hate just as easily.

I believe for Ranger training they did not alter the standards at all. So between boot camp and Ranger training, these two women learned how to do pushups the proper way.

It doesn’t say these women recycled through. It says they joined the class in August.
“Eight of the female soldiers passed the Ranger Assessment Phase Week, where more than half of all Ranger students typically wash out. None of the female soldiers passed the Darby Phase in June, and were dropped or recycled into the July class when they could try again. Still, no females passed. Finally, three women went in with the class in August; two passed, and the rest is history.”

Carly, you lost me on your admiration of Hillary. She is NOT dedicated to public service, she is dedicated to self aggrandizement of herself and Bill and making a fortune from the stupid tax payer. When has she ever “sacrificed” for the public. When has she ever “served” any one but herself and her own ambitions? This shows an unbelievable lack of good character judgement which is a critical trait of a president. I feel the same way about Trump’s friendship with the Clintons. If they came into my yard, I’d sic the dogs on them, let alone “invite ” them to my wedding.

What her e-mails are going to show is that she spent 4 years on a gov’t paycheck. During those years we will find that she spent all her energy and time collecting “donations” for the Clinton trust and not doing the country’s business at all.

While Captialism “CAN” be toxic, Socialism/Communism ALWAYS is toxic.
If you speak as a conservative in California, you couldn’t get elected as street sweeper. You have to remember your audience. I hate it, but its true.

There are plenty of Democrats that used to be KKK as well.
 August 19, 2015 at 3:01pm
AND the British Union Jack as well. Shall we get rid of those flags?
 August 19, 2015 at 3:00pm
First of all, the KKK marched under the American flag and their symbol of choice is the Cross. Do you advocate eliminating those symbols as well? The KKK were devout Democrats as well. If only we could eliminate that group. If a people “put their history behind them” as you suggest they are cursed to repeat it. You have no right in this country to NOT be offended. Gay Pride weeks and marching down the street in s/m fashion GREATLY offends me, but I don’t get to have it stopped, do I?

“That flag don’t mean nuthin to me”. Apparently they don’t teach English at that school either.

I think there is an error in this report. Our local medical school has stopped using fetal and embryonic cells for stem cell research because they found that adult stem cells are much better for all research. The Blaze needs to look into that. One of our scientists said they have achieved no significant results from embryonic cells but were having great results from adult stem cells.
Bush 43 outlawed the practice of using embryonic stem cells for research. I wonder how that order dovetails into today's practice? Something ain't right...
"One of our scientists said they have achieved no significant results from embryonic cells but were having great results from adult stem cells"
This is a well established and well known (in the scientific community) fact. The abortion lobby is not interested in facts. Literally not ONE cure or advancement has EVER come about or resulted from embryonic stem cell research.

Improper signaling stop will get most people a warning…don’t do that no more. Only a crazy person or an ******* would argue with the police officer. Those of us raised with manners would respond, “I’m sorry officer, I wasn’t thinking, I’ll be more careful.” You will be let go with a wave and a have a good day.

I know 2 people that are vehemently supporting Trump. They are on his payroll.
