Which means the last thing we need to do is give the drunk more of the hooch. Bailouts amount to simply feeding an addict more drugs to stave off the inevitable crash.

Good conservatives consider public debt to be even worse than tax-and-spend. Only a moron would think otherwise. Nope. Good conservatives think that taxes are bad, and that public debt is good. Otherwise, why would conservative Presidents Reagan and Bush cut taxes and increase debt incessantly? You...

Is it (even remotely)possible to be a Christian and a misanthrope? Yes, but only if you're a lousy Christian. Or a good misanthrope! :wink: That would be a sociopathic misanthrope ;) Really, having a position of power when you can manipulate the masses, then, yes, a christian can be that, a good wa...

Thatcher is partly to blame for what happened in US, UK and worldwide. She was responsible for a deregulation that effectively enabled a fusion of retail banking with banking proper. This happened in the UK first (interestingly it was mainly US banks that were taking advantage of this), until the U...

If the US government can run up as much debt as it wants, then why have taxes? Because if they keep running up debt, they have to either 1) default on the debt, or 2) pay it back by inflating the currency, which reduces the value of the currency. Currencies are based on trust - people expect them t...

Here's a specific plan of one candidate: spend $15 Billion a year to reduce US energy dependence.


Where does that money come from? Remember, all of the Iraq spending is deficit spending. Or are you saying that your beloved messiah is just another worthless deficit-producing politician?

Christ is not a person. Though Jesus may have been. When "Jesus the christ" or shortened "Jesus christ" is referenced. It is supposed by common denomination, that the term "christ" or"christened" translates as "blessed, anointed." In the way that you mention it, Christ would be the inhabiting spiri...

This has nothing to do with sexism. It is about SEXUALITY. There are sad, frigid little prudes out there who think that any celebration of sexuality and sensuality is some kind of "sin". The right-wing prudes, while totalitarian and fascistic, are at least honest enough to use the word "sin". The le...

Now maybe people will realize that investment alone is not the be-all and do-all of living. What passes as "investment" is really just a type of lottery. The majority of stock sales are not investments in a company. That only happens when stock is purchased from the company, itself. Otherwise, one ...

Did any of the Irish or so many other immigrants (except for a few oddballs like trappers and so on) adopt the native American culture? Nope, they exterminated the natives. Therefore, using your own paradigm, the inhabitants of the UK should treat the Muslim immigrants like a genocidal swarm that, ...

I was simply claiming that self-proclaimed agnostics are putting forward a facade and deceiving themselves.


This is a very common claim made by dogmatics when confronted with an actual Skeptic.

There is actually only one functioning brain among all of humanity. This is the Space Brain. It does all the thinking for human beings. However, the Space Brain does not have unlimited bandwidth per hectare. There is a limit to the intelligence the Space Brain imparts that varies inversely to the de...

Yes. I just meant to say that, names commonly have meanings in most parts of the world. I know. But whenever an American hears a funny-sounding foreign name, they ask "Oh what does that mean?" and then try to connect that with the person who bears the name. I'm an American and I certainly have neve...

As the evolution of physics has shown us, God does play dice with the universe. He also hides the dice and cheats when adding up the pips.
