On net neutrality:

Few actually understand what net neutrality really is. It's not government regulation (as much as some would like to think), nor does it change anything that is already in place. It simply states that companies can't violate their contract with their customers to provide internet access at a certain speed, by ripping off both the content provider and the content consumer in limiting the speeds of certain types of access.

This is not at all close to the argument "the post office has to ship things at the same price regardless of size." For one, the internet is not comparable to the post office, because, by technology standards, all packets are limited to 1500 bytes. Due to this technological limitation, it would be like the post office trying to charge different fees for a standard letter envelope and a standard letter envelope with a half an ounce packet of sugar.

Two, net neutrality does not force a one-price model for all speeds. As a model, it believes that ISPs should charge more for more speed. The difference is that net neutrality does not allow companies to say "your internet speed for your $50/month plan is 25 MBPS" while in a small print they write "except for access to Google, YouTube, Netflix, and Fox News." If companies are allowed to limit speed to certain sites by law, then by law and technological ability they are allowed to block access to legal websites, in order to charge more for their own competing services, which are often of poorer quality.

A better post office analogy would be this:

The post office provides different shipment plans, $10/month for 50 packages, $20/month for 100, and so on. Then, the post office all of a sudden decides to start tracking the addresses you're shipping to and sees that you're mailing 75 of your 100 shipments under your $20 plan to a certain address in Pennsylvania. They contact you and say, "from now on, if you wanna ship to that address, you'll have to purchase the $30/month plan for 200 packages or we won't ship to that address." This is exactly what net neutrality is trying to prevent.

+Andrew Abraham: No, because the ISPs do not own the content providers. Therefore, they're using their power to prevent legitimate businesses from selling their products. It's a violation of the free-market principle.

People need to quit hatin' on XML. Seriously. When was the last time you could store ANYTHING in a format without it breaking the parser or the format (and being readable)?

- INIs? Can't use newlines or equals signs in them.
- HTTP header style formatting? Can't use newlines or colons.
- JSON? Hard to understand, and just one bracket breaks the whole thing.
- CSV? No hierarchy and order of elements is extremely important.
- YAML? Simplified JSON. No newline or colon support either.

The problem is that both extremes are evil. Collectivism is the belief that government or the majority has the power to trample on the rights of everyone. Individualism is the belief that man is allowed to do as he please, with no restraints.

No, America was founded and should continue to be founded on the rule of law. In the words of Thomas Paine, "For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no other."

Well I think it also has to do that there is no oil being refined here. And I think there are a lot of taxes too,  that would be one of the factors.

"We contribute to the problem of the over-sexualization of our culture by constantly harping on it."

"It’s really the same buck-passing argument that Adam tried to pull on God in the garden, 'The woman you made me gave me the fruit and I ate.' It’s just now, 'That women wore yoga pants, and I lusted.'"

YES! This author hits the nail on the head.
Our talks about modesty break down when we assume the worst of everyone.

Silly article. One, duh there's a duel responsibility: of men to control their thoughts, but also of women to be sure not to be near occasions of sin for me and to take care out of charity to be sure they don't purposefully or inadvertently tempt their brothers in Christ. Second, arguing for modesty is not simultaneously saying that a woman or her body shameful. It's a matter of treating her like the Holy of Holies: covered. That which is most beautiful and sacred gets concealed. Further, it's pretty clear that after the fall, on account of no longer being clothed in perfect grace, we require clothing to be covered so that men and women (because it isn't just one-sided) to both guard their own thoughts and treat their bodies with the due respect and modesty incurred as children of God. Third, it's pretty obvious that sexuality is a major issue in the world, in fact, at present, it might be the most pressing moral issue short of unbelief. Abortion, pornography, promiscuity, et al. They're all tied to human sexuality. Duh, the solution is not to "not think about sex", but to think about it in the way God intends: as a sacred and (when celebrated in God's plan) sacramental binding between persons out of love and for the sake of procreating new life. But, appreciating the phenomenon itself naturally entails that you examine the true gravity of the sins and perversions which twist it. Stupid to ignore the problem. So, the solution: train the self (man or woman) in chaste thoughts and modesty. Ensure that you are in no danger of sin yourself, and then ensure that you are not in any way a cause or near occasion of sin for your neighbor. Incredibly simple, and wholly Biblical:

Temperance:
Matthew 5:28 But I say to you, that whosoever shall look on a woman to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Modesty
Matthew 18:6 But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.

They go hand in hand :-)
