Re: the GOP's war on science

Here on these boards we can see a lot of sullen resentment towards intellectuals, and displays of bitterness and anger. In my view this should be taken as a message, not a provocation. Of course it helps very little that the same people who harbor [more]

The results of gerrymandering

I have a serious question about the case against gerrymandering. Almost everytime I see someone arguing against it (and I don't think it's something to be desired) one of the main arguments is always, [more]

Re: new marijuana laws lower crime rates

Opponents of marijuana legalization, particularly members of law enforcement, frequently claim that liberalizing cannabis laws will lead to an increase in incidences of criminal activity, such as burglary, robbery, and driving under the influence. [more]

Re: Difference between crows and ravens

If you look closely you can tell that ravens have four of these feathers while crows only have three.

Which means the difference is just a matter of a pinion.

Re: Wild A$$ed Guess....

Ukraine sends in troops tonight between 8-9 p.m. Eastern time.

My guess is that if we just look at the timeline for Georgia we'll see roughly the same timeline in Ukraine. Putin has a game plan and he's pretty good at this kind of [more]

Re: the long awaited correction

So, the last question... buy and hold for a month, selling into the summer season? Or is this the best we get until summer's end?

I think this may be the best we get until summer's end at this point. My guess (and it's ONLY a guess) [more]

Re: On paying college athletes

I don't think it would based on your objection. The scholarship and the ability to play would still be infinately more valuable that whatever small monetary compensation the players might receive. Their compensation, both the scholarship and the [more]

Re: On paying college athletes

Do you think their priorities are any different currently? Do you think that some extra money would have them going to class less?

An Open Letter

To my best friends wife (who is my wifes best friend):

I can't tell you how much I admire you. When you told us you had been diagnosed with MS 9 years ago, I was astounded by how calm you seemed. You told us later how scared you were and how [more]

Re: USSC defends wealthy's right to own government

What decision is being noted? There is not mention in the article and the quotes are obviously satire. It's not "news" that government is owned by those with a lot of money so I'm not sure what Borowitz is talking about.

Re: Krugman proves...what?

I agree there's not a 100% map between "highly educated" and "skilled", but there's certainly a lot of overlap. There are highly educated people who have very limited skill sets while there are many skilled people who are [more]

Re: Hobby Lobby & Scalia's Past Rulings

It's interesting to think though what doors might be opened if Hobby Lobby were to win. Would the Amish be able to relitigate their opposition to having warning signs on their buggies, pay federal income taxes (because the money goes towards war), [more]
