Re: A new candidate for worst scumbag ever emerg

Re: Islam for Dummis

Religion is the excuse, it is not the reason.

Alienation, poor economic conditions and options, having no future, and lastly, a desperate need to belong or to have a higher purpose.

Re: More Hobby Lobby Damage

Yes, but didn't RFRA allow the argument to be made that led to the exemption? Without RFRA, the exemption would not have to have been enacted.

Re: YTM vs APR

Re: The end of it

Was Brady pulled because the game was basically over or was he hurt?

There was speculation that he chose not to go back in or that he was benched. I don't think either is the case but I've not seen the actual answer.

Re: the end of capitalism?

First, that is precisely the thinking she was criticizing. It's so ingrained that we do it without thinking about it, but it's the wrong way to think. (I'm only relating her thesis here.)

I can agree with that, but more specifically and perhaps more importantly, HHS and the current administration enabled it by creating the exemption to ACA - an exemption that was not part of the law as [more]
