Re: Wisconsin right-to-work

That is why we have the world's largest per capita prison population.

No, we have the largest per capita prison population because of racism, not simply poverty -- poor whites don't end up in prison at the same rate poor blacks do.

Re: Stick to surgery, pleeze...

My biggest gripe about this is if you're going to say that gay is "a choice", than you have to say that heterosexuality is "a choice" - and then these people making these statements need to admit they could have chosen to be gay [more]

Re: heading into the abyss

The news the other night showed 6 or 7 high ranking Russians who were critical of Putin and who've met untimely deaths. Imgur.com might be right: Putin might actually be a Bond villain.

Re: Momofuku Ando

Re: Paying Your Mortgage, Car Payment, Rent With

If a tenant started paying with a credit card, I'd see that as a warning sign. It probably means they are having a hard time squeezing the cash out each month and are going to be floating the balance.

He's got to do what he thinks is necessary for the survival of his people.

Re: gun control

Australia was able to implement gun control and get citizens to turn in handguns - and based on pictures I've seen of wildlife, they've got more dangerous critters for one to need a gun for protection.

Re: Poll: student health information

I don't agree or disagree. My middle school had what was considered comprehensive sex ed at the time, but didn't cover abortion or adoption - the sex ed was just the mechanics and not about decisions if conception happens. By 8th grade, most of my [more]

Diversifying the energy mix among them. Iran certainly doesn't want to waste its oil on electricity generation and a system relying exclusively on natural gas is also not a good idea, as it will deplete eventually.

Re: Root cause of terrorism

Of course. ISIS is different from HAMAS which is different from Al Shebab. Etc. But one of those causes is a strict reading of the Koran (i.e. Islam), especially in the case of ISIS.
