Concerning RR and a battle of wits... I would say that RR brought a knife to a gun fight, except RR forgot to bring his knife.  (10 hrs ago | post #32106)

You promised to go away. This is the fourth time you have broken that promise. Clearly promises are worth as much to you as the truth...that is...nothing. So...Go away.  (10 hrs ago | post #32104)

https://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=9UCd FbyL8y0&featur e=youtu.be "It raises an interesting question. Why? Why do some people think climate scientists are telling the world about anthropogenic climate change? I’d really like to know. Do they think scientists somehow profit from this? Because they don’t. The people with all the money are the oil and coal interests. If a scientist wants to make money, they should be sucking up to Exxon-Mobil. Is it ideological? Do they think scientists just have an irrational hatred of the rich, or desire to see the end of the world? Because that isn’t the case, either. If they were welcoming the apocalypse, the best thing to do would be to advocate for more neglect and more consumption." --PZ Myers  (19 hrs ago | post #31859)

I did not say "make it known". That is another of your distortions, that you so often do. Dishonest, much. And you call yourself a Christian? Are you a Liar for Jesus? The actions imply it is "Christians preferred". How could any non-Christian get any other message? What I said was "sending a message to his team", which is exactly what such actions do. Some of the coaches even admit to proselytizing. They want all their players to become Christian. That certainly sends a message that "Christians are preferred".  (20 hrs ago | post #31833)

Well, let me reword that since anyone can run for president... They could make a SERIOUS run for president.  (20 hrs ago | post #31829)

Because their opponent was Christian too. You really are a dumbass. And their Christian privilege had helped them get to the point they COULD run for president.  (20 hrs ago | post #31827)

How could you possibly come up with an idea that stupid from what I saidHow can ANYONE know exactly what a dead man (or even living) was thinking? Of course SCOTUS must interpret what the framers wrote. It is all anyone does when one reads something. InterpretFirst, it is not "at the will and pleasure", which implies "arbitrary ". Second, as pointed out, it is necessary. Third, of course it is possible to come up with different interpretations. Just look at the Quran. Sunnis, Shi'ites, and who knows how many other sects...all with different interpretations of your "sacrosanct " text. Same with the Bible, or any other holy book. Just look at Buck and Catcher arguing over the meaning of the Constitution. They come to two very different conclusions of what it says.  (20 hrs ago | post #31826)

Well, looks like Cruz has bowed out. And Kasich is so far behind he needs the Hubble to see Trump's arse. Looks like Trump is the nominee, sans some trick by the Republican insiders at the convention. Sanders still has an outside chance according to the pundits, but that chance is dwindling quickly. Personally, I don't think Sanders entered the race way back when with winning in mind, but wanted to pull the election in a more progressive direction. That I think he accomplished. I think he was quite surprised by how much support he got. Curiously, I heard one right-wing pundit say that Trump is to the left of Clinton on foreign policy. Clinton or Trump. Blech, what a pair to choose from. Too bad Cthulhu won't be on the ticket.  (Yesterday | post #31750)

No one knows precisely what was on the mind of the framers of the Constitution. Ergo, someone has to interpret what the Constitution means. That job belongs to SCOTUS. And they have to deal with situations the framers never thought of, nor could have thought of. The Constitution says nothing directly about a right to privacy. Nor does it say anything about web-cameras. Does that mean it is OK to put a web-camera in someone's bathroom?  (Yesterday | post #31746)

BTW...Buzzfeed did not say 'you're not privileged'. What they said is that there are 43 areas in which you ARE privileged.  (Yesterday | post #31733)

But keep in mind, he wasn't running against a non-Christian. Who did he lose to? A Christian. They ALL lost to other Christians.  (Yesterday | post #31732)
