I don't know what is going on but, recently I have been getting circled by businesses and law firms. It's getting old having to block so many spammers. If you are NOT a person with a REAL profile. Don't bother circling me because I WILL BLOCK YOU

If we spent half of what we do on the Pentagon we would still have the largest military in the world.
The next time someone says we can't afford social safety nets remind them of how bloated and wasteful our military spending is.

The reason it's so easy to trick a conservative into agreeing with bad arguments is that they almost always rely on very bad arguments to support their out of touch positions.

Introductions  - 
 
Thanks for the invite. I look forward to interesting discussions. I find it useful to put my convictions to the test by engaging with others of differing opinions. Sometimes I am presented with a point that causes me to re-evaluate what I think. Too many times I have been disappointed with potential adversaries who merely parrots what they have been told to think. 
 I have varying convictions on many subjects. I hold positions that are considered left and others that are considered right. I really believe that anyone who claims that they are 100% on one side is simply deluding themselves.
 I believe in the concept of the "marketplace of ideas" where every idea can be challenged and the weak ideas are weeded out. I believe that dialogs should be honest , frank and civil. One may argue passionately for his cause without being callus. As long as the truth is valued disagreement is manageable. 
 I also believe that we have more in common than we have differences. Sometimes it's best to start on common ground and work from there. for example; regardless of whom you voted for, Dem, Rep or Lib, do you honestly believe that Washington represents you?.
  I don't think that politicians and corporatist are necessarily evil or conspiring against us. I believe the machinery of our government is broken. Like a poorly maintained vehicle, it may start, it may run but it runs badly, wastes fuel and smells bad. 
 I believe that the broken system repels quality people and both attracts and supports the lesser characters. Characters who's lust for power, privilege and profit blind them to everything and everyone that deviates from those pursuits. 
 The big question is what can be done about it?

I saw a bumper sticker once that read. (hope I get this right)
 We will never have great leaders until we stop mistaking  Charm for Character, Ambition for Ability, Education for Intelligence, and the lack of transgression for integrity.

 The meat grinder that is Washington prevents quality candidates by finding their indiscretions, no mater how innocuous and exploiting them. It's " panem et circenses"

This is a strange sense of entitlement the wingnut brain has adopted, the demand to be taken seriously while doing nothing to deserve it. 'how dare you laugh at me while I'm lying and insulting you intelligence! So rude!'

The nice thing about free speech is how it tends to allow speakers to parade their all-consuming ignorance with all the self-consciousness of a streaker at a rugby game.

Maybe this is where the ISP's can make money. No free speech for the ignorant. Have a ISP Ignorant Post fee so they are charged per ignorant post..........

"...they are arguing state law protects doctors from liability concerning unborn fetuses on grounds that those fetuses are not persons with legal rights."

That's it! The abortion debate is over. The Catholics have just used the term "Fetus" and admitted that it is not a person. 
 
So according to the Catholic Church, fetuses are only persons when they won't cost the Church millions in a wrongful death suit. #hypocrisy

+Tony Coyle Yes they will but, since they stole this issue from the RCC, we can rub it in their face. ;b

Introduction
Recently began to pursue a dream I had when I was a teenager. I wanted to be a musician. More precisely, I wanted to be a Rock Star. I bought into what I was being told about being responsible and let that dream slip thru the cracks. Now, a little over 30 years later I've discovered that the pursuit of material wealth is a lost cause. The game is rigged and we are all just suckers. The important thing is to pursue happiness. Even if that doesn't make you rich, you still get to be happy.
