    Another judge finds law against gay marriage unconstitutional

    Most of the gays and lesbians that I know would be more than willing to accept civil unions, but most of your conservative, right-wing buddies are banning any possibility of those, as well. I'm confident that equal protection will win out in the end, but frankly, it's a long road ahead and we'll...

    Tax system...

    I could definitely agree with this system as well. The problem you're going to find with getting it implemented is that there are thousands upon thousands of tax attorneys and accountants that are going to fight tooth and nail to keep the system complicated enough that their services are still...

    Under God?

    I had this really neat trick I used to do as a kid... When I was reciting the pledge, I used to omit 'under god' and nobody was ever the wiser. This whole thing is a mountain from a mole-hill created by the conservative media to outrage the religious right. There's more to being patriotic than...

    Dennis Hastert Proposes to Allow Continued Corruption

    So, instead of creating legislation that would end the culture of corruption in control of Washington D.C., they're going to make it so that they merely need to refer to it as "fundraising" to get away with it? When asked about the need for campaign finance reform as well, Hastert said he was...

    Fired for smoking? Constitutional?

    Honestly, I wish my company would follow suit. If they were offering to pay for treatments, counselling, etc..., I'd jump at it in a heart-beat. Seeing as their health care costs are going down, maybe I'll pick up some Scotts' Miracle-Gro (SMG-NYSE) stock. :smoking:

    Top 10 Reasons Bush and the Republican Leadership Suck

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with tax relief provided it doesn't drive us further into the hole. We have a national debt right now that is rapidly soaring to 100% of our annual GDP! The irresponsibility of everything that got us to this point aside, surely even a libertarian such as yourself...

    Top 10 Reasons Bush and the Republican Leadership Suck

    10. Theocratic Tendencies- Pushing for things like compulsory school prayer, using tax dollars to pay for Christian religious displays and to fund "faith-based" charities who use the money for 'recruitment' in addition to any legitimate charitable causes. Just because it's the majority religion...

    Alito - the Disappointment, the Pleasing, and the Other

    I have to admit I have a couple of issues with him that just nag at me. First, his lack of memory regarding the organization he was proudly a member of during the 70's at Princeton. He was proud enough of his membership to include it on a resume in 1985, so where's his pride now? I don't buy...

    2006 Death Pool

    This thread is sort of sick which is the primary reason I'm going to participate in it. :2razz: 1. Ariel Sharon - Stroke, obviously 2. Dick Cheney - Congestive Heart Failure 3. George W. Bush - Pretzel 4. Ted Stevens - Natural Causes 5. Benjamin Netanyahu - Heart Attack 6. Gerald Ford - Stroke...

    Negligence resulting in death $440.00... The Outrage, Priceless.

    Source: Here Are they serious??? What the hell incentive is a $440.00 fine going to provide a BILLIONAIRE to clean up his operations? Likely, it would be cheaper for him to pay the $440.00 everytime someone dies than to make the necessary changes to make the operations safe. Yes, that IS the...

    Robertson: Sharon Stroke is Rebuke From God

    Crazy? Maybe crazy like a fox. He and the rest of the bible-bending, extreme religious-right pander to the undereducated masses. As demented as Robertson's statement sounds to a rational human being, there was a fair-sized segment of the population who nodded their heads and absorbed this as...

    Abramoff Guilty - Up to 20 congressmen will be indicted

    I'm just glad some light is finally being shed on this issue and that our representatives are being forced by popular demand to act on it. I have to admit though, I'd be very surprised if the solution they come up with is anything more than a loophole-ridden bill of mind-boggling complexity...

    Abramoff Guilty - Up to 20 congressmen will be indicted

    Whether or not the many who accepted money from Abramoff and his associates are indicted for, or found guilty of any wrong-doing, it is still going to deal them a great deal of political damage in their respective localities. Those already being named as recipients like Ney, DeLay, Frist...

    Heck of a job, Bushie

    You're right, I shouldn't generalize like that, but when I see the sort of attacks I described, even coming from the highest levels of the Republican Party, surely you can understand how it's difficult not to do so. I must admit that my passions run high sometimes, particularly when my own, and...

    Should children be taught the proper use of firearms at an early age?

    I'm actually for teaching kids at a young age about gun-safety. We inundate our kids with education about things that can potentially do them harm, and I think it would be beneficial if firearms were a part of that education. Would you neglect to teach your children not to get into a car with a...
