From a local (Kentucky) newspaper today in response to the incident: "A northern KY school district says a Sheriff's deputy shown on video handcuffing an elementary student above the elbows was complying with its restraint policy. ...the finding came from an independent investigator hired by t...

It is something we lack today, sparing no effort or expense to make a gift to God that will last through the ages. The other that they did not spare, which we do, is time. The concept of a multi-generational project is just gone from our culture. We balk at something that takes 5 years to build, ne...

There should be no law enforcement officers at the school or even at the district office unless and until something has gotten to a point where it can't be handled by the faculty and parents. This I agree with but then school employees have step up and be the johnny-on-the-spot with the firm hand w...

It's the world we've created (or allow to be created) for ourselves out of negligence and fear of litigation. Put cops in a position to do what we don't want to touch and cops are gonna do what cops are gonna do. I'm half surprised the flatfoot didnt taze him for crying. Give it another decade and ...

The huge benefits of free 5-18 education are dismissed because raising funds via blanket taxes is inherently evil, even if the taxation does not unduly burden any individual and provides huge benefits to nearly every individual. There's no "due" amount of theft other than zero. Those huge...

Not so. We can know that priests and imams are lying from straight deduction from what they themselves tell us. They say that God is unfathomable and unknowable and works in mysterious ways. Then they turn about and tell you of all they know and fathom of what is unknowable and unfathomable. If you...

I pay more (a lot more) for grass fed beef. Even though the farm it comes from is a short drive my house, it still costs more than grain fed beef from a larger farm. It's a small farm and the people running it can't do a volume business . You could even call it a boutique farm. Judging from the peo...

We would survive. In anarchy we would in the end be able to govern ourselves and would probably be able to live by, 'anything is fine as long as it harms nobody else' "...as long as it harms nobody else" needs to be enforced somehow. What does the group do with people who harm somebody el...

Thing about laws is, they are so deeply ingrained in my experience as a human, I cannot even begin to wrap my head around what it would be like to exist without them. It would take a lot of effort to envision. There would still be rules. I don't think it's possible for humans to live together witho...

A fool and his money are soon parted. No, I don't believe in passing laws to protect people who are bound to f**k themselves from f*****g themselves. I see that you follow the golden rule. Not.

I think the sarcasm was directed at the person who wrote 'Generally what someone says is what they mean. If they meant something else, they'd say that thing instead". Not at you. You did use the term 'humanist' but the person who wrote the middle comment implied the whole cartoon was based on a...

Remember back in the day when rape victims were criticized for their choice of clothes and anything less than frumpy and baggy full coverage meant she was "asking for it"? That's what I think of when I see these cases (men and women both) where people are considered to be "asking for ...

Anecdotally, I am liberal but not at all creative. I routinely do badly at classic tests of creativity like 'what are 20 different uses for a paperclip?" (They didn't use the classics, probably thought the students had already done them and 'knew the answers'). This lack of creativity is actual...
