What Do You Think About Obama's Decision to End NASA's Mo...

How exactly is he breaking the law? He proposed a budget to Congress, and Congress will vote on it. That is perfectly legal. I disagree with a lot of what Obama does, but I will not accuse him of something that he has not done.  (Feb 2, 2010 | post #178)

What Do You Think About Obama's Decision to End NASA's Mo...

As far as the moon is concerned, the United States is, and always will be, first. We were the first nation (and only as far as I know) to put a man on the moon. In fact, we have put a man on the moon 6 times (Apollo 11,12,14,15,16,17). With the advancements in robotic technology, we can study the surface of a celestial body longer, cheaper, less riskier, and more efficiently with a robot than with a human. It is not currently necessary to put a man on the moon or any other celestial body to study it.  (Feb 2, 2010 | post #175)

What Do You Think About Obama's Decision to End NASA's Mo...

As far as the U.S. budget is concerned, the President of the United States proposes a budget to Congress, after which Congress can approve or deny the budget. President Obama has not in any way violated the responsibilities of his office in requesting that NASA end their moon program. It is perfectly within his powers to put into the U.S. budget any increase or decrease of funding to NASA. Congress has the power to deny the proposed program termination by denying the proposed budget if they think it necessary. So President Obama is not "governing like a dictator" in this instance as you propose.  (Feb 1, 2010 | post #26)

I was a student at Liberty University, and I hope to be again as soon as I sort out some personal problems at home.  (Dec 21, 2009 | post #44)

Murder

It would seem that to define murder as merely the "unlawful killing" of a person would be ethically and morally unstable. The Webster's New World Dictionary defines murder as the unlawful and malicious or premeditated killing of a person. The definition of murder is careful to include the word malicious, which is defined as having, showing, or caused by malice (the word malice being defined as active ill will, desire to harm another, and evil intent). So murder is not only wrong because it is unlawful, it is also wrong because the murderer holds evil intent towards the victim.  (Dec 21, 2009 | post #12)

That is definitely true. I am sorry if I seemed a bit edgy in my comments, that was not my intent.  (Dec 20, 2009 | post #40)

Murder

It is interesting to note that when certain situations arise, an ethical vs. moral dilemma seems to arise. The example that you cited would at first seem to present such a dilemma, but I believe that the moral application is straightforward. "Cold blooded" Murder is wrong, and when one commits it that same person has forfeited their right to life by virtue of their offense. So it would indeed be killing someone if one were to kill Hitler because of his offenses, but it would not be "murder" . The reasoning behind it would be justified. So had Hitler not committed suicide and been present at the Nuremberg trials, I believe that it would have been perfectly ethical and moral for them to have executed Hitler in light of his offenses.  (Dec 20, 2009 | post #8)

I agree that life is sacred, but I think how one takes life and what one makes of it are one and the same. Both depend on your actions, whether it be what you do or your reaction to what someone does to you.  (Dec 20, 2009 | post #4)

Do ethics and morals exist (ethics are your beliefs, morals are what your actions prove you believe)?  (Dec 20, 2009 | post #1)
