Re: foreign aid

We have troops stationed in developed nations such as Germany,Japan & south Korea, and it's costing us a fortune. If we have to defend their ass, they should at-least foot half the bill. You don't think the US has troops in those countries because it suits it's foreign policy objectives? and don't ...

Re: Separate tables at McDonalds

Poor people don't always make the rational choice in their situation. And yet we live in an age where the planet's economy is based on models that assume people act rationally. And it's not just poor people that don't always act rationally. Yes, socialist economists do make the mistake of thinking ...

Re: Major American Politicians Like to Wear American Flag Pi

Modern education is achieving more than it ever has. That's the biggest crock of shit I've ever heard. Education (and I'm talking about schools) is one of the biggest scams on Earth. The Chicago teachers union has just put all of the city's teachers on strike, and in effect has told all of Chicago'...

Re: Was Kant a Douchebag?

I've already explained, it is your burden to prove I haven't read any Kant, since you are the one who made the claim. I have no obligation to assist you in anyway. Surely is someone begins a debate by claiming that Kant is a load of rubbish and they are asked which of his works they are basing that...

Re: An argument for the existence of God

Infinity is a mathametical concept that has nothing to do with reality or the Universe since neither is infinite. In a like manner eternity is a religious concept that has nothing to do with reality or the Universe, only with God. Nothing to do with reality? LOL. You have no idea how foolish you ar...

Re: Spacetime

Space, (The Universe) is described as finite but unbounded. If it is finite it is of a fixed size at any one instant in time, that humans do not have the means to measure it is irrevelant. I, myself, do not have the means to measure the speed of light, but I do not question the accuracy of those wh...

Re: Tower of Brahma

Just because a particular person cannot complete the puzzle, does not make them of low intillegence. It takes a particular mind set, focus and concentration to work it through to the end. Many will work it part way through and loose track of which disk is going where, it's not that hard to loose tr...

Re: The Death Penalty Rapes us All

You would advocate the death penalty if Jewish children and women were killed. Where did he say this? But, even if he did.... But you're against the death penalty otherwise, why is this? It's because you're biased, a liar, and a racist, you stupid, stupid fuck. You're subjective. You believe the li...
