Re: The economics of CO2 emission

The difference is not "who pays" either. In the end the society always pays either through taxes to clean up the soot, treat damaged lungs and deal with the rising temperatures, or through payment for the power, to the utilities that [more]

Re: Christian Business

When I grew up, my parents taught us that our faith, was just that, ours. It wasn't something we pushed on other people. It wasn't something we discussed with other people, unless we were at church. It was something for us. There was no reason to [more]

Re: Religion's one way street

How do you deal with an employer who is a deist and hates all the organized religions.... berates them all and athiests too?

Probably with a lawsuit against the employer for violating the Civil Rights Act, assuming that the berating [more]

Re: Religion's one way street

Are you saying that religious behavior of some religionists is just as innate as chromosome analysis specificity (ie, Y-chromosome) is to gender (I didn't use skin color to race, as I'm not big into the idea of 'race science' though in this thread [more]

Re: Religion's one way street

I won't speak for the OP, but for myself I see a difference. If I berate/denigrate a person for being a Jew (religious) that is not the same as doing so because they are Jewish (ethnicity). I denigrate ALL religions, and the beliefs they espouse. [more]

Re: Religion's one way street

Agreed. But from what I can tell Charlie Hebdo is not a hate group. The wiki says they are a left-wing anti-racist satirical publication. That isn't really comparable to WBC or Nazis or KKK. I support their right to peaceful (even if obnoxious and [more]

Re: Religion's one way street

If the police chief was just some guy handing books out on the street (or if he did it without the authority of his office) I'm guessing no one would care.

Re: Fighting the War on Christmas Trees

CSS stands for Church-State Separation, an acronym I've seen elsewhere. I thought it was commonplace, but perhaps not.

Oh, gotcha - should have seen that.

Re: NYPD basically stopping work

Nobody's telling "a bunch of cops" anything. No one is saying "all cops" are "this or that."

Some are. One of the arguments (though certainly not the only one) is that the Brown and Garner cases reflect [more]

Re: The best gov't money can buy

Free trade isn't the issue. The issue is what do we do with displaced American workers? I cannot see why that is such a hard concept to follow.

Re: Fighting the War on Christmas Trees

So then, do governmental displays of Christmas trees violate CSS?

Not sure what CSS is, but in terms of the First Amendment the answer is - it depends.

Displays of decorations associated with Christmas and Hanukkah were [more]

Re: A Startling Admission By Ferguson Prosecutor

In practice, prosecutors rarely present cases to the grand jury unless they're seeking an indictment.

Indeed, but this was hardly a run-of-the-mill case. Absent the intense political pressure, I think this would have been a pretty [more]

Re: A Startling Admission By Ferguson Prosecutor

I think the prosecutor used her to confuse the grand jury as a part of his plan to persuade the grand jury to return no indictment against Wilson, which is the opposite of what a prosecutor is supposed to do.
