Re: whose interests should take precedence?

I think Al made a good point. The question was asked in the absolute, but diplomacy is a matter of degree.

The real question is do you support all Isralis levels of agression against the Palestinians (including the illegal settlements) even [more]

Re: Stephen Hawking sings the Galaxy Song

Hey Loren

You must have been in your glory last night. NOVA did a show on how math describes everything. I think they got to the universe being a mathematical expression. Math doesn't just describe the universe it is the universe.

Re: Republicans getting worse

In fairness to him, we’ve never in American history had a party so in control of such an ideologically extreme faction.

Re: Extinction - White Rhino - OT

So you do think humans are a cancer

I think eveyrything alive is a mutation of something else. In short everything alive was a cancer to something else at one time in evolution.

Re: Extinction - White Rhino - OT

White rhinos are going extinct because of human activity. I was just severly chastised for pointing out humanity is hell bent on destroying life on Earth.

Do you hate humanity?

Re: Abrahamic religion is a virus

This is an application of Dawkins' "meme" concept

I never read that. I started this by wondering why a person's sexual identity would be such concern to anyone, ever. Then I saw a history program pointing out that current [more]

Abrahamic religion is a virus

I believe almost absolutely in cause and effect. I think to understand modern Abrahamic religion we have to understand its history. What makes it endure after thousands of years. The basic DNA is the first five books of the OT. The host for this [more]

Re: Jobs.

But all those displaced workers can get a job at Walmart selling Chinese goods to Americans and live off fodd stamps at the same time.

Makes sense to the righties.

Re: Jobs.

That's just China. As I mentioned yesterday Ford is dumping 2.5 billion into Mexico so they can leverage $3@hour labor that will never buy a Ford.

You should see what free trade did to my old hometown, Syracuse NY.

Re: No more Neocons including Hillary!

Re: Ford to put 2.5 billion into Mexico

but Apple is selling iPhones in China just as fast as it can.

But strangely, not to the people who build the Iphones.

THe Mexicans who build the Fords won't be buying them on $3@hour, either.

Re: America's Nine (9) Classes...

Because of this, I think the article mixes up two types of data set (1. political influence and 2. income) and so it's rather confusing to me although it makes some interesting observations
