re: And the famine begins. - Duke
[quote]In Interstellar the ending really disappointed me. Once again reality is predicated upon anthropomorphism. We really need to accept the our microscopic place in the Universe.[/quote] It's a human story, so the ending needs that human connection. ...

re: Thing about our country that angers me the most right now - Duke
It's amusing that changing what we call a marriage in the eyes of the government would have made this issue go away. Gays have been fighting for acceptance. The gay marriage issue is a reflection of that struggle. Calling it a "civil union" does nothing to change that dynamic....

[quote]The trade deal is staggeringly boring when you get into the minutiae of it, these other 2 issues are not. [/quote] Yeah, but a trade deal is far more important in the 21st century economy. A skeptical and thoughtful examination of the proposal is necessary and important. SE Asia represents...

re: Supreme Court has spoken: gay marriage is happening - Duke
[quote] As I understand it, they aren't connected. A minister can't officiate a civil marriage in some European countries. Completely separate. [/quote] So? There's still marriage in the eyes of the church and marriage in the eyes of the government here. It seems strange who presides over eac...

re: Supreme Court has spoken: gay marriage is happening - Duke
[quote] People in many European countries have civil wedding ceremonies for the purposes of being married in the eyes of the government. They also have religious wedding ceremonies so that they are married in the eyes of the church. Totally separate. Can have one without the other. This would solve ...

[quote]We're talking about the TPP, which is not readable. It was not read or seen by the people who passed Fast Track Authority. [/quote] There are multiple bills. It aids the discussion to explicitly state which one your referring to. ...

re: Meanwhile, While America Fixates on Confederate Flag Drama - Duke
I'm just not passing judgement on something I haven't seen yet. If the TPP turns out to be the horror show you propose, I'll grab the torches, pitchforks, and some weed. Then roll up to Missouri to pick you up and we'll go burn the motherfricker down....

[quote]It also means the 2,000+ page bill can not be amended, which means no changes or alternations to it can be made. [/quote] It's a trade agreement between multiple countries and you think congress should be able to amend it and send it back for renegotiation? It makes sense the legislature w...

re: Supreme Court has spoken: gay marriage is happening - Duke
The ruling seems a natural extention of a lot of the marriage and privacy cases the court has heard over the past decades. The ruling strikes me as logical based on some of the precedent I've read over....

[quote]The actual ruling involving overriding state's rights and i don't like that part of it. I don't think it's coming immediately, but there's a lot of arguments to be made of saying i'm a Louisianan in NYC and my LA gun rights take precedence over NY's.

Bentley trying to get tax increases is great and all, but I think he's pissing in the wind. What happens when he doesn't get those tax cuts? The budget still has to be balanced right?...
