Re: One for the loons.

If a medical doctor tells you he knows nothing, find another doctor. Too bad for you if the health care system doesn't allow that for you, but does allow it for the rule-makers. If your doctor is knowledgeable and some loony reforming politician promises that under his uber-plan you can keep your do...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

James Bond was a character created at a certain time, for a certain audience. It worked. For creative people, reach is important. As times change, audiences change and then, the characters change to appeal to the new audience. Movies need an audience, so the the movie-makers tweak character, plot l...

Re: Are members of the gay community better adjusted, in a moral sense; than homophobes?

I agree. Have you ever known a heterophobic person? I have not. What do they hate about what can only be described as the standard human model and sexual practices that keep our species from going extinct? Regards DL The relevance of a phobe is determined by the actions of the phobe. An immoral tho...

Re: The Corruption of Science

I'm guessing you're not a scientist of any stripe, so I gotta ask, what makes you so certain? Because there is no proof. Lemme get this straight: you are certain because there is no proof? I'm guessing you're a Chicken Little, and the proof is your unproven belief. I have no idea what "Chicken Litt...

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

The story is the same as it has ever been. “Henny Penny, more commonly known in the United States as Chicken Little and sometimes as Chicken Licken, is a European folk tale with a moral in the form of a cumulative tale about a chicken who believes the world is coming to an end. The phrase "The sky i...

Re: Living High on the Hog

It's good to point the finger at evil. However it's not true to say small frugal people are wrong because some of our allies are wrong. It's true that power corrupts, but it's not a good enough reason to give up. Each religion has specific, action-based observances to activate virtuous feelings in ...

Get it?

Aha. Aha.

Re: Got any good jokes?
