no news

A story on NPR yesterday. Interview with one girl who knows next to nothing about what's going on and doesn't care. Apparently while an extreme case, this general attitude is more prevalent now than 40 years ago. I tend to think it's at least in part [more]

why isn't the US doing more?

Really? When we try to help we are resented. Of course sometimes it's our own bungling. But still...

A story from Ramadi. The people are a bit nervous and seem to want us to help more.

Interesting viewpoint. I hope he's right. It does seem to fit, though as salaryguru pointed out elsewhere people still vote for the morons.

Rant over. Sorry, but my ass was really chapped.

In case you hadn't noticed, I'm with you! The bible is not a science text book, nor is it really much of a history textbook (e.g. the conquests attributed to Joshua have been determined [more]

Re: Bill Black in IN's RFRA law

Which is fine...but notice that what you're doing above is balancing the interests of the pharmacist with those of the patient, rather than simply proclaiming that the pharmacist's rights don't exist (or are unimportant).

Of course. [more]

Uh oh. God created heaven and Earth first, then he went with the big bang.

You forgot "hovering over the waters". So there was liquid water before there was a big bang or, for that matter, the sun (light).

She said it happen at random times.

Yes. Which is why I figured it wasn't the force limit or IR beam. If the door is closed, and they're puttering around and it opens, then the opener thinks it received a command.

Re: Republican path to the White House

I don't suppose you guys have noticed that the free exercise of religion is part of the 1st amendment, in so many words.

No it's not. It says government cannot establish religion. The reason for all these FRFA laws is because the [more]

Again - why? If there's an alternative that allows the pharmacist to have gainful employment in the field of their choosing and allows patients to have access to medications, while still allowing the pharmacist to comply with their religious [more]

Yeah, I read it the same as Nigel did. And I agree with his comments.

I am just asking whether you believe that there exist people who have a genuinely held religious objection to selling (not using, but selling) specific medications?

I'm sure it's available. Yes, I do keep all such manuals.

Most openers will have a button in the back of the unit. You hold it for like 5 seconds and it clears the memory (and I think the lights sometimes flash). I think that same button if [more]

Re: Bill Black in IN's RFRA law

Make the meds available over the counter; no pharmacist necessary.

Good point. If it doesn't compromise patient safety then that's a reasonable accommodation. (Way to think outside the box! ;-)

Do you not accept as a first principle that selling these medications - not taking them but selling them - could violate the requirements of someone's faith?

No. Those are two distinctly different things.

Re: Ghost in Garage Door Opener

Drag out your manual and follow the memory clearing procedure. Then reprogram for your remotes (again, the procedure is in the manual).

While it's not likely it is conceivable that somehow your opener is recognizing a signal as legitimate. [more]

Actually, that may be unfair. It's not just Indiana. It's Christians as a group (not all of them, maybe not even most, but a lot of them). I don't think it's too geography-dependent.

But he is being compelled to sell it, in violation of his faith. He is being forced to act in a manner contrary to his religious principles. He is being affected.
