re: Playing Poker Professionally - Joshjrn
I make less than you, have over 100k in student loan debt, and live comfortably. Oh, and I spend enough on food and drink to make an Epicurean blush. I've noticed you are extremely reticent, to the point of flat out refusing, to post what your car note is. If you aren't enough of an adult to adm...

re: CNN should never be confused for a real news outlet... - Joshjrn
Begala has never been presented as an unbiased journalist. He has always been introduced as a Democratic and Clinton shill. He's there for opinion commentary. If this occurred with one of the actual news anchors, I'd be far more interested. ...

re: Justice Scalia: The death penalty deters crime. Experts: No, it doesn’t - Joshjrn
Considering I don't think the federal government should be involved in setting fuel standards, that argument isn't particularly effective on me :lol: Regardless, there is a significant logical difference between the State indirectly causes deaths and the State actively killing someone. ...

re: Justice Scalia: The death penalty deters crime. Experts: No, it doesn’t - Joshjrn
You're not arguing what you think you are. You're not arguing that we convict fewer innocent people; you're arguing that we convict more people. Sure, we also probably convict more guilty people, but that's not what you're saying. Let's say that we have 100 murders every year. In 1950, we tried ...

"Minority rights" is a bit amorphous. That said, people seem to be pretty solid on interracial marriage: [img]http://content.gallup.com/origin/gallupinc/GallupSpaces/Production/Cms/POLL/bb8ic2qate-wa_cbgc2ifg.png[/img] ETA: [i]Loving v. Virginia[/i] came out in 1967. ...

[quote]I'd be. My prior is that for you it's a combination of the "administrative" concerns (which I share), on top of a moral/aesthetic distaste for its very existence (which I do not share)[/quote] You're on the right track. My objection to the death penalty is multifaceted, so bear with me. Fo...
