    Because they didn’t.

    There’s not a general with the authority to arrest the president. It has to come from Congress. And no, there’s not enough “sets” in Congress to do it.

    If Leno should follow the lead of Sarah Silverman, does that mean he should offer to do sex acts for billionaires in exchange for campaign donations to leftists?

    “And it seems moviegoers do appreciate Nolan’s flare for creativity. During its first weekend on the big screen (Nov. 7-9) the film raked in more than $47.5 million, putting it at the number two spot at the box office.”

    I’m not sure #2 on opening weekend is the ringing endorsement they were hoping for.

    No. They are Liberals. That best describes them.

    The question on whether the label properly applies is, “What are they being liberal with?” In the case of the American Liberal, it’s the Constitution.

    Conservatives look to conserve the Constitution as it is written and with its original intent. Liberals want to take liberties with the Constitution and adapt it to fit their own tyrannical goals.

    If I were in a Muslim country, I would be a liberal as I would want to take liberties with their draconian 7th century laws in order to be free. In the USA, I am a conservative because I want a government exactly as designed by the Constitution (sans the 16th and 17th amendments).

    As soon as you can rationalize being “protected and dignified” as you are murdered, you are already there.

    We seem to be confusing the appearance of dignity with actual dignity, which should be absolutely no surprise in our culture. We’d rather look like ____ than do the work to actually be ____.

    That’s the beauty of free expression, Hallo. He get’s to say it. You get to tell us about your metaphysical spiritualist unconditionally loving god, you get to disparage the One Living God without whom we would not even know what unconditional love is, and we all get to go home happy.

    Sounds like a good way to get out of class. I wonder how many days they can milk it.

    They fixed it. Do I get editor credit? :D

    Why does the story say the US ranked second while the graphic shows the US as first?

    That tantrum really makes the decision of the coaches not to play look like the right one.

    I think you are the one missing the point, Blest.

    I agree that this and the catcalling video are the same – both are about women seeking attention from the people around them to capture their reactions, but where is this woman saying no one else can express themselves?

    Is she calling for people who leer at strange appearances be punished? Is she saying they do not have a right to leer?

    A little self-examination from time to time is good for the soul. Do you want to be the person who is leering at other people? That’s the question I hear her asking. If you do, fine. If you don’t, then this is a call to examine how you treat the strangers you come across every day.

    So people need to have a specific appearance to be acceptable? Is that your example of loving your neighbor as you love yourself? Or did I just hit on something about how you love yourself?

    This woman is apparently comfortable with her appearance. I don’t see in this article where she’s saying people who leer at her need to be punished or that she needs to be compensated. It’s a case study on how we look at each other and something worth considering individually if you love God with all your heart.

    I thought that, too. 20 years to work out the appeals?

    I’m not sad he was executed, but I’m not happy about it, either. I hope what they said about him turning his life around in prison is true.

    A rare moment of clarity for the “good reverend.”

    Do we really want the internet to be like power and water companies? What great innovations in power have we seen in the past few decades? If ISP’s can’t make money for offering better service, why would they?

    If someone operates anything in a manner that harms another, that someone ought to be held liable, so that part of the ruling makes sense to me. Using drones to damage property, spy into buildings or backyards, or cause bodily harm should be subject to legislation.

    However, I do want a very tangible definition to “reckless.” I don’t really trust the FAA to define it.

    I won’t watch the videos, but the story mentions putting his arm around someone. That is battery, if the person wants to press charges.

    I tend to agree. There is space between “product of genes” and “conscious choice” that doesn’t help the cause, so they don’t want to consider it.

    We learn how to behave from our environment. As herd animals, we want to (1) belong to the heard and (2) establish our place in it. As we grow, we learn through trial and error what gets attention, what gets acceptance, and what elevates our place in the herd.

    If we can’t get a higher place, we may settle for acceptance. If we aren’t accepted, we’ll settle for getting attention.

    Homosexuality is no different than being a spoiled child. Spoiled children may not know they are spoiled, didn’t choose to be spoiled, and would rather be accepted than just pacified. Through how they processed their environment growing up, they unconsciously learned the spoiled behavior as the best method to get them what they think they want.

    Genetic or not, we still own our own behavior. If you are gay and want to be, own it. Stop looking for excuses. There have been people who have changed their sexuality through force of will, genetic predisposition or not.

    Using genetics to excuse your own behavior that you are not comfortable with leads to nothing but pain. We only seem to know better when the genetic predisposition is obviously destructive as with serial killers, pedophiles, and the like. Just because the behavior isn’t as destructive doesn’t mean you don’t own it.

    A public school is an arm of the government and the students have little choice but to attend, therefore it cannot establish a religion, or by extension, the absence of it.
