    Survey for Music Teachers!

    This is a survey for any and all music teachers on DP. I'm part of a start-up which is creating music learning software designed to supplement a music teacher, and I was hoping you kind folk could answer a few questions for me. There are only 10 questions, and it should take less than 5...

    Top Weiner Aide Trashes Intern Who Wrote Campaign Tell-All

    Top Weiner Aide Trashes Intern Who Wrote Campaign Tell-All This is better than House of Cards. If Weiner's campaign wasn't sunk before, I almost can't imagine it not resting on the bottom of the ocean floor now. [/FONT][/COLOR]

    Does Religious Background Preclude Historical Objectivity?

    I recently watched an interview Fox conducted of Reza Aslan, who wrote a book called "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth," and the interviewer was obsessed with why Aslan, a Muslim, decided to write a book about Jesus. Aslan essentially spends the entire interview explaining what a...

    Making Affirmative Action Effective

    As AA currently works, it's based off of race and ethnicity. It's fairly obvious why it was made that way. The intention of AA is to assist disadvantaged youth get into colleges. Obviously, there are white kids in as dire straits as kids from any minority. That being said, wouldn't it be more...

    Army ROTC/Serving with Army

    I'm starting with ROTC, and I intend to contract with the Army after my 4 undergrad years. Does anyone have any advice on doing well in ROTC, and what to expect in the Army itself? Any advice on choosing a specialization when I take a commission? I know there are a ton of veterans on DP, so...

    Do You Think Zimmerman is Guilty?

    This article really confirmed what I've been thinking about this whole thing. Zimmerman didn't mean to shoot Martin, he was doing his best to protect his neighbors. I think it's likely that Zimmerman provoked Martin, who lost control, started beating the crap out of Zimmerman, who shot Martin in...

    Does Anyone Think Gingrich is a Good Person?

    I know plenty of you are going to come into this thread thinking, "who cares if he's a good person, its about whether he could be a good President." If that's how you feel, okay, I respect that, but that's not the question here. The topic is whether he is or is not a good person. I was just...

    Herman Cain: Communities have right to ban mosques

    Herman Cain: Communities have right to ban mosques This is my biggest problem with Cain. He is willing to blatantly violate the Constitution in this manner, and will hide being the facade of, "but the people want to!" Member of the KKK want to exterminate blacks, jews, catholics, etc. Doesn't...

    What did you think of Harry Potter? [SPOILERS!]

    The final Harry Potter movie was released about a day ago, and it brought the decade long quest to an end. So, what did everyone think of it? With the warning for spoilers in the thread's title, I loved it. It changed some things for the better (like making that abomination at King's Cross...

    New type of commander may avoid Katrina-like chaos

    New type of commander may avoid Katrina-like chaos I think this is a pretty cool idea, and part of me wonders why we didn't have this before. The most telling part, IMO, is the comparison to the '04 G8 Summit in Georgia.

    Geithner gives some companies pass on new rules

    Geithner gives some companies pass on new rules This is an issue, but there was some information in there that confused the hell out of me. That is a typo right? I mean, thats 10x World GDP...and in any case, $30 trillion...even if it was $3 trillion, the derivatives market is f**king huge...

    Afghan officer opens fire, kills 9 Americans

    Afghan officer opens fire, kills 9 Americans A different version of this story was posted, but I want to post this for some information it provides, that I hadn't heard before. This part made my blood boil. Pastor Jones has American blood on his hands. Now, I don't want to give any more...

    How do you feel about Generalizations?

    There are a lot of generalizations here on DP, and generally in politics. Common ones are, "liberals hate (insert constitutional right/upper tax bracket)" or "conservatives hate (insert minority/equality)". Whenever I see one, I tend to get pissed, because its sheer ignorance, stupidity, and in...

    Wichita Judge fails to issue Preliminary Injunction against Anti-Abortion Activist

    Wichita Judge fails to issue Preliminary Injunction against Anti-Abortion Activist I think that Judge is a total idiot; that statement was the absolute definition of a true threat. Speech that has minimal social value, communicates serious intent to harm another individual, and causes the...

    Is Three Cups of Tea Writer Greg Mortenson a Fraud?

    Is Three Cups of Tea Writer Greg Mortenson a Fraud? I can't believe this, I loved Three Cups of Tea! This pisses me off to no end. If you don't trust the article ( I didn't), watch the 60 Minutes report: Greg Mortenson - 60 Minutes - CBS News This is a gross, horrible abuse of the public's...

    Should we Eliminate Social Security?

    I was reading an article on Yahoo News, and it stated that 20% of your tax dollars go to Social Security. Now, given the fact that SS is going to go bankrupt in the future, and the way its set up is inherently wasteful, should we cut it completely before it dies on its own? I'd say yes, but...

    OC Republican allegedly sent offensive Obama email

    OC Republican allegedly sent offensive Obama email Now, I posted this not for partisan hackery but for this part: Instead of having a Democrat or liberal over-react (in my opinion), we have a Republican doing so. As distasteful as this is, I don't think it would require Davenport to step...
