In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

    First grade arithmetic tutoring.

    Koreans are quite obsessed with education and that is a subject of serious social issue debate in Korea. Those students are probably excelling due to that culture of education being passed on. In Korea, it's not uncommon for Korean children to go to school, then tutoring after, followed by...

    Have you supported a political agenda with which you disagree out of party loyalty?

    Re: Have you supported a political agenda with which you disagree out of party loyalt If one adopts a certain political position because of the 'party's' position, they are dumb. On the other hand, if you support a party because they mostly represent your position, although you may disagree...

    Has capitalism increased hatred in the human race?

    No. Actually capitalism is the perfect match to natural human behavior. Therefore capitalism, managed by laws and social ethics, is the best system one can hope for. Your argument seems to rely on a false notion that hatred in the human race is a new phenomenon. It isn't. On the...

    A-HA Gotcha Hillary: Turn out the Lights, The Party is Over!

    It's pretty obvious that the Republicans have been practicing 'strategic patience' with the Benghazi stuff. They are likely biding their time sitting on relevant information, and likely will ask Hilary to testify at some point. This will likely happen shortly after Hilary announces her...

    I'll be the judge of that, thanks.

    How did the redneck come to represent America abroad?

    I'm sure that had something to do with it. The the common theme overall seems to be backward/unsophisticated from the European prospective. Unless there is something that contradicts that in the perceptions you stated. They seem to be different mediums to project the same perception. You...

    How did the redneck come to represent America abroad?

    This has been a perception of Americans since the colonial days. Americans were always thought to be backward woodsmen etc. by their European counterparts. Of course, Americans sort of played into that perception and even relished in their plainness relative to their European counterparts who...

    Homeland Security Funding Fight Over Immigration Poses Risks for Republicans

    I think most people are sick and tired of these kind of games on both sides. Fund the department and quit playing games with an agency that is designed to secure the homeland (Department of Homeland Security). You want to make your fight over presidential decrees overstepping into the...

    Genetically modified Mosquitos!!!! Ahhhhh

    Here's some more information about the company: Oxitec Science From this site, it seems that the method has to be reapplied to maintain the suppression of the 'target species'. As mosquitoes don't live much longer than a couple weeks, it seems that the concerns of some regarding 'wiping out a...

    Democrat Politician files Legislation to Tax Marijuana at the Federal Level.....

    I think you're right on, and my comments were assuming that to be the eventual case.

    Democrat Politician files Legislation to Tax Marijuana at the Federal Level.....

    I don't see the harm in it. If a state wants to legalize marijuana, it's only natural the fed. govt. should get a cut too. As for the legalization of marijuana, it's really only a matter of time. Whether or not that is a good thing is up for debate, but my general idea is if you want to smoke...

    "Straight Talk for White Men" - Nicholas Kristof

    I think to say that social preference for women or minorities doesn't exist is extremely naive. The problem with your assessment, still, is that it identifies a certain group for scrutiny and glosses over the real problem which is discrimination itself and across all races and genders. This...

    "Straight Talk for White Men" - Nicholas Kristof

    Again, I think you are misdiagnosing the problem in favor of a racially charged disposition. Perhaps a better diagnosis would be 'race or gender discrimination is a problem that needs to be fixed'. Or even, 'how can we make success more gender/race blind?' By associating a certain group with...

    "Straight Talk for White Men" - Nicholas Kristof

    I do think it is important to recognize a problem in order to fix it, but I disagree with the premise of your diagnosis which seems to be, "white males are a problem that needs to be fixed". Clearly white males can't help that they are white, or male, or the target of 'social justice'...

    "Straight Talk for White Men" - Nicholas Kristof

    Outside of you being emotionally invested in it...what does repeatedly bringing this up have anything to do with making it better? Tearing down one part of our community doesn't raise up the other, it just breeds more contempt and racial tension...and that isn't healthy for society or people...

    Grave premonition of disaster. However, this is often the first reaction to new scientific solutions to problems.

    Genetically modified Mosquitos!!!! Ahhhhh

    Good point, however, one must also consider the harmful affects of these animals eating DEET, or similar chemical, laced mosquitoes and the general affect of these chemicals on humans and other animals exposed. I have seen in other sources that this technique could lower the mosquito...
