re: I'm gonna try again on this Obama video for Obama supporters. - ewdij
Here are my answers: I do not consider myself a typical/traditional Obama supporter as I am not an American. But yes, I would have definitely voted for him in 2008 if I had a vote and probably voted for him in 2012. 1.) Has Obama's views on gay marriage really changed since this interview or i...

re: New York Vacation Recs - ewdij
1) View from the top of 30Rock is much better than the view from the top of Empire St. (I am yet to go to the new WTC, so can't compare that to the other two). 2) If you can go to only one museum, go to MET. Budget one whole day for MET 3) The Public Library is cool. The great reading room mig...

re: Indian(India) Americans: richest group in america with median income of $100,547 - ewdij
I am an Indian who moved from India to LSU in 2003. Basically the cream of the Indian society (either the most intelligent ones or the most enterprising ones, or both) are moving here. If you are really poor in India, you would not get to come here unless you are brilliant and got a lots of break...

re: Do atheists want church leaders helping to quell Baltimore violence? - ewdij
I don't like it when a religious leader tries to impose their viewpoint in some way on me/society. Here are some random examples: - suggesting there should be prayers in schools - suggesting that atheists can't have morals - suggesting homosexuality is unacceptable, while at the same time not s...

re: Do atheists want church leaders helping to quell Baltimore violence? - ewdij
I am an atheist. I have no problem with church leaders trying to stop the violence. The perpetrators are behaving irrationally and it is only natural that any person of authority will try to help. The first order of business here is to restore peace. How does it matter to me what the religious...

re: Hillary wants to change religious beliefs - ewdij
[quote] I was unaware of that particular speech. Thanks for posting it... in my book, it adds a point to Clinton's acceptability. Arrogant, you say? Why is it arrogant to have a belief against religion when having a religious belief is not? They're ALL opinions. What's truly arrogant is to imply...

re: Furthering my son's development into coding - ewdij
Ask him to look in to Harvard's cs50. Also, I have a question, why c#? the reason why I ask is not because I'm against C # or any thing, but to me it seems like the problem you are running in to is that he is getting bored with the problems he is solving and not necessarily the language. So I won...
