Re: My new goal . . .

I figure, it's my only chance on the fool to see a discussion where both sides use actual facts.

Oh.

Which side am I on?

Wally was probably referring to these posts.


Oh dear god, yes I miss napping. But with Albabyboy now getting close to two years old, his naps - and therefore my naps - are rarer and rarer.

Anyway, which side [more]

Counting NGLS, ethanol, and unconventional oil

The link was to field production of crude oil. It would not include ethanol, and relatively limited amounts of NGL's.

Okay, not literally. But there hasn't been a post on this board for quite some time, and in this week's TWIP see the continuation of a massive spike in oil stocks in the U.S.:

Re: What Obama calls them: Violent extremists

Where is ISIS getting its people and money from? It seems to have a lot of both for a splinter group with limited grassroots support.

No. But a group that garnered enough support from Christians to take over by armed rebellion a quarter of the United States could at least make a reasonable argument. Particularly if the response from the established Christian churches were [more]

With respect to the last question, here is what I am ignorant about. I have no idea how the majority of Muslims feel about having a unified Islamic state, living under Sharia law, having a theocracy versus democracy, rejecting Western cultural [more]

Re: What Obama calls them: Violent extremists

The question is to what extent does ISIS represent the Muslim world.

If that's the question, then it's a pretty easy one to answer: not in the least bit. Not at all.

Your post nicely illustrates that there are at least three [more]

Re: What Obama calls them: Violent extremists

I realize that you can call a movement such as this "religious", I'm just not sure why you would.

Because it is a religious movement.

You are advocating that we allow ISIS to tell us what to think?

If the Mennonites started decapitating mainstream Christians and burning them alive, I think it would be fair to deny their self-categorization as Christians.

Re: What Obama calls them: Violent extremists

Since zealotry by definition isn't mainstream, it would be misleading slander to label them 'Islamist.' Maybe they could be called The AntiIslams, riffing off the Antichrist. Even the Crusader Right morons ought to understand that [more]

Re: What Obama calls them: Violent extremists

The problem I have with that approach is that we're again categorizing the groups we're fighting by their tactics (violence, extremism) rather than by their goals, objectives, organizational principles, or anything else that makes them [more]

Well, of course. If you're having single-payer, but keeping the insurance company's overhead & profit between the patient and the doctor, there's no savings.

Re: Jane the Virgin 020915

So, where do they go once the kid is born?

Re: Jane the Virgin 020915
