If a person was denied to work in Hooters because they are a guy, for example, this is not an act of discrimination against them, it is a categorical exclusion because they do not meet the criteria for a job. Similarly, if a child is refused the right to purchase a car, it is not discrimination based on age, but an exclusion based on a judgement regarding their lack of competence to drive a car. These are acceptable, discrimination is not. In the case of housing, if an apartment owner denies a man right to purchase shared housing because the woman is uncomfortable with co-ed housing, it is not discrimination, it is that men did not categorically meet her requirements for shared housing. 

In the case of the gay cake, there was nothing about the cake that required making it for a heterosexual couple. There was no formula for the cake that made it impossible or even difficult to make a cake unless it was for a man and woman. They were perfectly capable of making the cake, and actively discriminated against the gay couple as evidenced by their language in defense of their discrimination. If, for example, a particular church had sacred wording for a ceremony that required for it to be a man and woman, it would NOT be discrimination because the church only could conduct ceremonies that follow its particular marriage formula. However, if the church did not have a rigid formula that required specific wording, then it would be discrimination; that is the line that can be drawn between categorical exclusion and discrimination. 
Last week, Oregon ordered the owners of the infamous "Sweet Cakes by Melissa" bakery to pay damages to a lesbian couple they had discriminated against, and subsequently harassed — and conservative media, of course, got it all horribly wrong.

Anyone who thinks the purpose of the constitution was to limit government must have their intellectual head up their ass. The purpose of the constitution was to EMPOWER the Federal government and TAKE POWER AWAY from the states and individuals they governed. The Bill of Rights was a series of amendments to the constitution lobbied for by anti-Federalists who felt the constitution gave the government too much power. Yet "constitutionalists" like Rand Paul continue to propagate the myth that the constitution limits government!
 
Written by Butler Schaffer. This mantra continued to be invoked throughout the evening, as the speakers lamented the parallel diminution in liberty and expansion of state power: increased economic regulation, governments siphoning off some 45% of the wealth produced each year, and decreasing parental control over government schools (references to war as the most flagrant expression of statism were carefully avoided, however). As I listened, I ask...

Isn't it amazing what science can do? Soon instead of waiting for organ donors, people will be able to have organs custom-printed for them, fresh and fine-tuned to support their bodily needs! #3DPrinting #technology #humanitarian #organdonation
Dying patients could someday receive a 3D-printed organ made from their own cells rather than wait on long lists for the short supply of organ transplants. Such a dream remains far from reality, but labs have already taken the first steps.

Walter Scott was pulled over for a broken tail light. He was shot in the back minutes later because the cop claimed he feared for his life. Warning, disturbing footage!

There is no law requiring compliance without warrant. Saying if he complied he wouldn't have died is like saying that a hostage should just do what the criminal asks, or that a store clerk should just hand over the money. In other words, the idea we should all be victims for our own good. That is not how citizens of a civilized society should behave.

You can't claim that a truly free market must have no force, then then advocate the enforcement of private property as the foundation of a free market. It's a contradiction in terms. The options that I see is either to not enforce everything and expect people to all automatically agree regarding the necessity of private property and the particular implementation of (which  find unrealistic, but I will entertain proposals to this end), or the elimination of private property as a meaningful entity beyond being a culturally and socially-driven institution like the family. 

I would prefer the latter was the case, as it was prior to the creation of the state. Families and communities could build their own unique systems of land management and determine their own systems of rights and delegation of powers and responsibility concerning land use and ownership. Some the property would be owned by individuals, some by families, communities, leaders, caretakers, etc.; people can choose voluntarily which communities if any they wish to participate in, and they are not forced at the barrel of a gun to comply for others' conceptions of property rights if they don't agree with them. 

I maintain that this ^ conception of private property rights, while I believe it to be ideal and reasonable, is not pragmatic or practical given the status quo conditions; however, it would be the closest thing to a truly voluntary society, as I'm sure. What private property rights proponents propose is a one-size-fits all system where everyone respects the institution of private property rights, and more specifically what others may agree to be private property rights, is quite the opposite of voluntaryism, as it coerces some to buy into the same set of rules of life, labor, and resource management as others.

In this sense, private property rights as advocates envision is collectivist, and no less coercive and violent than the state. If you truly wish for a free market and voluntary society, you must abandon the false dichotomy of "private property rights or no rights at all" and recognize that rights are very complex and diverse and everyone has the right to decide which institutions they wish to participate in and the particular implementation thereof. Only by abandoning this coercive requirement that everyone participate in private property rights and allow everyone to freely choose which system of land and labor management to support, can people truly call themselves advocates of liberty and the free market.

I finally found a full Armenian wedding video. Does anyone have any idea how difficult this is for someone who barely speaks any Armenian to find an authentic Armenian wedding video? Now, finally I have a good depiction of an Armenian wedding so I know what to prepare myself for!

A British Survey of Bitcoin reveals just how far it has come, and the biggest obstacles to mainstream adoption:
Bitcoin’s reputation, perception, and acceptance levels run the gamut worldwide. Acceptance in the U.S., China, and Australia is relatively strong. Some nations seek to suppress it through legislation and even ban it in places like Russia and Bangladesh. And if you have poor internet connectivity, you are destined to be on the outside looking in …

Story
Tagline
I creatively express myself using any resources at my disposal
Introduction
My interests: philosophy, research, social theory, developmental psychology, alternative medicine, communication technology, computer science/engineering, creative expression, poetry, novelism, journalism, autodidactism, spirituality, world religion, cultural analysis/anthropology, linguistics, mysticism, game theory, macroeconomics, AI theory, fringe science, quantum physics, sex magic, social dynamics, filmmaking, photography, market research, free/open-source software development models, Linux, cloud computing, stock/currency/equities trading, smart houses, self-driving cars, environmentalism, evolution, the societal underworld/black market....just to name a few ;)

I hope to better streamline my Google+ content in the future, but for now, these are some of my interests. You can be certain that the vast majority of the content I have posted, and will post fall under that list, and thus will give you a pretty good idea of whether I'm worth following or not ^_^

I am a free-thinking, life-loving creative expressionist, and there are few things I love more than to inspire and be inspired by the whole of the world. I believe in living a life of Oneness manifested through Selfless Love, and it is my mission to find a way to get rid of all the selfishness in the world, along with the misunderstandings, prejudices, and misled self-righteousness that it fuels. http://about.me/nspyraishn
Bragging rights
I have published over 3500 pages of writing, authored dozens of poems, and drafted two fiction novels. I also have in-depth knowledge of a variety of academic topics (including philosophy, psychology, information technology, Web 2.0, Linux, UI design, futurism, world religion, and the liberal arts). To top it off, I'm an accomplished psychic and diviner, but I won't expect you to take my word for it on that one.

Orange Coast is a decent community college with an impressive faculty, but its quality of education is curtailed by mediocre management, sub-par curricula, and a depressing absence of passion for education. When I first arrived at Orange Coast, it seemed to be one of the best community colleges out there- they had a relatively prestigious history, efficient transfer programs, and were well-connected with higher education and employment institutions. But these benefits have turned out to be mostly fluff, as they lack the robust educational programs to prepare the students for these opportunities. If you are a self-learner and don't need a strong social network to propel your education, Orange Coast is bursting with opportunities. Their textbooks aren't pretty, but the library is rich is academic treasures that can fill the gap of their failing curricula. If you're looking for excellent job-preparation programs, Orange Coast is one of the best-connected and vocationally-oriented colleges I've seen, and will amply prepare you for a $15/hour job to get you by. But if you're looking for a real college that provides a comprehensive and in-depth education, Orange Coast is not the correct choice. This college may be good when it comes to certificates and job training, but it's a bad choice for anyone looking for anything beyond an Associate's degree.

Today I went to Subway to order a BLT foot-long with avocado, and a soft drink. I ordered the sandwich with everything but onions, bell peppers, and cucumbers. My experience there was the best I've ever had of a fast food place: *Their service was extremely efficient, quick, and accurate. *They put in everything I wanted, and asked to verify if I wanted oil/vinegar, salt/pepper (which I did). *They were very courteous and professional *The food was fresh, and the portions (particularly of bacon and avocado) were generous and aesthetically-pleasing. If every person working at that Subway was as good as the man serving me was, This is definitely a Subway you gotta order food from, should you be in the area!
