Re: The 2016 Election Chat/Scream Room

Trump's plan for health care: 1. Repeal the individual mandate. 2. Sell insurance across state lines. 3. Full deductibility of insurance premiums. 4. Medicaid [de]expansion for those that can't afford insurance. 5. Inheritable HSA's, especially for high deductible, catastrophobic only. 6. Mandatory...

Re: Hate

I first leaned how all of this works when I was a teenager with long hair and the church I had attended since I was a kid basically told me that I was no longer welcome there. That was a jarring and eye-opening experience. I got a whiff of what it felt like to be an "out group" and how little the w...

Re: Hate

You can't reason with psychopathic sadists, so they would have said: "YOU'RE NEXT!" I've always thought that a smart ass Islamic terrorist might rightly point out that the Christians got to have their Crusades and Inquisition, and thus they shouldn't criticize the Muslims for simply wanting to do t...

Re: The 2016 Election Chat/Scream Room

Has this been getting enough play in the lamestream media or has it been ignored? Hillary Clinton put the State Department up for sale, with top aides pulling strings and doing favors for fat-cat donors to the Clinton Foundation — including a shady billionaire, according to smoking-gun emails relea...

Re: The Olympics

Why are Hillary and Obama allowed to continuously lie ad nauseum with no consequences while Lochte's life is basically ruined by simply exagerrating an obvious robbery at gunpoint that was actually perpetrated upon him? Powerful people display their power through things like telling gratuitous lies...

Re: Hate

What do you think the torturers of the Inquisition would have said if one of their victims had pointed out that inflicting maximum pain and suffering for slight offenses against church orthodoxy didn't seem very "Christlike"? You can't reason with psychopathic sadists, so they would have said: "YOU...

Re: Hate

It's hard to imagine a stranger couple than Bill and Hillary Clinton. Bill is basically a clever hillbilly who likes variety in his female companions and who has mastered the con of city folk, while Hillary is like some asexual humorless Alf-like creature from another world who finds our species in...

Re: The 2016 Election Chat/Scream Room

Still don't see how Trump is going to win without that Black Swan event. The issues nor demographics is on his side. I don't see how any Republican who can make it out of the Republican primaries can ever win the Presidency again. Kasich could have destroyed Hillary in a general election, but he wa...

Re: Hate

Contrary to what most people say about Christianity, the old testament does make a statement about how homosexuals should die. However, when Jesus came in the new Testament he did away with the old laws and customs giving us the new golden rule which i mentioned above. Nowhere in Christian New Test...

Re: The Olympics

Maybe it's not so cut-and-dried after all? Apparently the "vandalism" was much less severe than reported, and the actions of the off-duty policemen who were the security guards very well might have constituted robbery: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/olympics/rio-2016/2016/08/21/investigation-...

Re: Hate

Anyway, I think putting the blame on Bush is silly. Where do you stop? You're gonna go all the way back to the CIA in Iran? The British Empire and Lawrence? The Crusades? Interventionism has had a long history, but it's been consistently a failure after WWII. Maybe we would learn something importan...

Re: Hate

That was a very interesting discussion between Reub and MT about the past (seriously). Would you two consider giving your view of the future (1) if Hillary becomes President, and (2) if Donald becomes President? Thanks. ...
