  1. So...the logical thing to do is to vote for a conservative candidate (because conservatives never force their ideas on others) who waging a pretty literal war on the press? Solid. Reducing the complexity of politics down to a false dichotomy and tossing in reductio ad absurdum for good measure. Excellent work, SilentLoner. What exactly is the false dichotomy here? Do elaborate. And mind the fallacist's fallacy, RedneckProfessor.

  3. That newspaper clipping is from a Scottish newspaper. Dunno if that's what you call the left, but I don't know why it would be hard to see that a narcissist who has surrounded himself with right wing christian fanatics might be bad news....
  4. Its a pretty weak comparison. Domesticated animals like pigs are bred for eating, and killing them for food =/= making them suffer for amusement. Tigers are wild animals and should not be used for entertainment. I was at a circus that did something similar to this and even as a kid I knew it was horrifying. No, it's not. It only goes to show that you haven't thought twice about how the food industry works. Why is the tiger worth more consideration? Because it's cute? Endangered? In principal, there's no difference as far as I can see. Actually I know a lot about the food industry practices and have taken issue with it in the past. Tigers are, like I said, wild, not eaten, and ENDANGERED. Its really not that hard to figure out. Not sure why you're having difficulties with it.
  5. Expect more cases like this as religious fanatics continue to make laws to close abortion clinics and defund Planned Parenthood. As it is, 96 percent of Tennessee's counties have no abortion clinic.
  6. A lot of abortions are due to failed birth control. Plus a lot of people I know in the south are desperate to leave the hellholes (their words, not mine) but can't afford to do so.

  8. It looks like Zuckerberg might be gearing up for a political run. Which makes his renouncing atheism (sadly enough) make sense. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/secularvoices/2017/01/04/the-likely-reason-zuckerberg-denounced-atheism-hint-not-daughter/
  9. Gave my first ever witness statement to police the other day. I was walking down the street when a guy passing by me suddenly collapsed and cracked his head open on the sidewalk - blood started flowing like crazy. But at least it was heartening to see how many people ran out of restaurants to help the guy and call 911. Unfortunately his wallet got stolen by accident...

      Yeah - what happened was he was coming out of a fast food place with a big bag full of food cartons when he collapsed. Among the onlookers was a homeless guy who kept asking people for food/money. Finally another onlooker just took the (blood spattered, mind you) bag of food and handed it to the homeless guy who then left. When paramedics got there they tried to find his wallet but couldn't. Then one of the food place workers came out and told them she had seen the man put his wallet into...

      the bag of food. So that's why I said accidentally stolen.

      Oh... that sucks. Poor guy. It wasn't accidentally stolen though, if someone took his food with the wallet in it.

  10. Nice to have two mini-vacations in a row :D

  11. Reason Rally yesterday was pretty fun. I managed to win a signed Richard Dawkins book :)
