Re: Planned Parenthood’s Website Debilitat

RICO charges should be considered based on the widespread and systematic lawbreaking evidenced

They are, that's why no RICO charges are being filed, because there is no evidence of systematic lawbreaking being perpetrated by PP.

Re: Cecil

I think media and social media is providing this dentist with a good dose of karma.

With this guy's shady past, it's pretty obvious he doesn't care about following hunting laws anyway.

Re: The Drone Wars

shooting down a drone may be a federal crime

Like I said, I wouldn't try and "shoot" one - just paint it with a paint gun or water it with a hose. Or maybe get my own and see what happens when 2 drones fly in to each other. [more]

Re: The Drone Wars

I understand his sentiment (and agree), but even if I owned a shotgun I could not do that as discharging it within city limits is a crime. Plus the pellets are going to come down somewhere in my residential area. Not good.

That's why [more]

Re: Trophy Hunting a Good Thing?

It's a shame people will pay big bucks to go kill an animal just for "sport", but not equal bucks to see and leave them alive. IMO hunting should be reserved for food.

The Drone Wars

If I ever see one of these flying in my backyard, I'm going to view it as an open issue to play, and will either get my own drone, a paint-ball gun, or see if I can bring it down with a hose.

The way William Merideth sees it, it’s pretty [more]

Re: Selling Body Parts, a Case Study

It's interesting for the amount of human life there is in China, they seem to have little value of it. I would be interested in knowing the psychology around that - is it just "we don't tend to appreciate things we have tons of" or is there [more]

Re: Buy, or rent a house?

That Money Mustache article lost me when he started ragging on pet ownership. I know they're expensive

Re: Buy, or rent a house?

And also factor in that that suburban house shortens your waking-hour lifespan by more than three years over the 35 year mortgage period. Time spent sitting in the commute.

Hopefully those people commuting are still awake, but [more]

What does that say about the reception of the videos?

Re: AM is exactly right

I don't live in a swing state.

I now live in a swing state (Virginia) and it does make elections more exciting. But it's sad that even in swing states a lot of registered voters don't go out for the off-year elections.

Re: Worse and worse for Planned Parenthod

Maybe because some who are not pro-abortion, but will not stop it, are against funding it, and regardless of the lies they are?

No one is arguing to make abortion illegal here.

Re: Obama's number one fan.

Essentially, he's correct. He'd win hands down against anyone in the field of current Republican candidates.

Re: Obama lashes out at ridiculous Repugs

The first Republican debate is August 6th. I've never watched one (usually wait until the Presidential candidates debates) but this year can't wait! It's happening, we're going to get to see Donald Trump make a bigger @ss of himself!!

He's saying that going way outside to the suburbs to buy an affordable house, can be false economics. Not only does it cost you more money; it costs you more time spent commuting, and you lose all the cultural amenities of a nice [more]
