If You Are Not a Liberal at 25, You Have No Heart. If You Are Not a Conservative at 35 You Have No Brain This is trash. People who say this are people who dabbled in politics in their youth, but never explored politcs in-depth. Noam Chomsky is still on the far-left. He's university educated. He's 8...

Mental illness is defined by some in a nutshell as the inability to think rationally.. so... political bigotry which ignores all evidence but that which fits over-riding prejudice.. could be said to be irrational... this would make a great number of people "mentally ill" it seems! Being i...

I'm opposed to late term abortions in most cases, and the reason has nothing to do with religion as I have no religion. On the other hand, nowhere in the bible is there any mention of abortion being murder. It isn't even a religious issue. Anyways, even if secular moralists get it wrong once in a wh...

Of course. Let's not "bother" looking into anything at all we either don't agree with or do not understand. That would actually require a bit of work on our part, and we're just too damned lazy for that. Why are atheists so consistently anti-intellectual? Why are they so afraid to have th...

True socialism can only come from the bottom up. We need to tell poor people about the nature of the corporate monster in which they live. That's real progress. This is already happening, given that Clinton has experienced a massive popularity dip recently. People are becoming increasingly aware of...

Um, even Varg admits leftists have more common sense than blind defenders of capitalism. I mean, how much sense does it make to b***h about brown people taking white people's jobs when it's the capitalists who came up with the scheme of having the third world make all the s**t consumed by westerner...

What you "expect" from God, or God to be, will not always correlate with what God actually is . It is only extreme hubris that would compel a person to say, "According to my line of reasoning and expectations, God should have done this and that, and be like this, and shouldn't be so ...

I also want to say it's stupid to think people can't get along merely because of skin color. The real problem is not skin color or even "culture". The problem in the UK is fundamentalist Islam. It's the same thing in Turkey. People who aren't religious fanatics get along with others just f...

Pax Americana is a myth. The last few decades have not been peaceful. Look at what America did in Central America during the latter half of the 20th century. Those years just seem peaceful to us because the victims of imperialism had no means of striking back. The historical "Pax" periods...

The political movement behind Bernie is not just some cult of personality. It is about bigger issues. He is replaceable.

It appears the eyewall is strengthening now as it's crossing the Keys. There's been a burst of lightning strikes in the eyewall.

I lived in Burlington Vt. briefly when he was mayor, and as a mayor he wasn't bad at all, though fines were STRICTLY enforced. I've seen videos on him as well from the same era where he was talking about news media, and how it was esentially a mouthpiece for corporate interests. That being said, I ...

Northern Cuba is getting raked. As for Florida on the east coast storm surge will be a problem because the winds will be blowing so long but otherwise it is looking a lot less likely they will get the devastating hit feared. It will still be a dangerous storm with lots of trees and power lines down...

Given that the symptoms of autism include lack of social reciprocity, lack of wanting to point things out or instigate the expression of emotions, I'd say that getting excited is not an autistic trait at all. Not saying autistic people don't ever get excited, but if you are generally "excitabl...

They criticized Obama plenty. It sounds like you get your information from right-wing Trump supporters who don't actually watch TYT. I get it from their own clips. Always praising obama and pushing gun control.i can't stand them. The lies he tells inbtween his cussing. I've never seen them criticiz...

The young Turks were die hard Hillary and obama supporters. They don't uncover Hilary's corporate shillness Not really. They support Sanders. They seemed super supportive of her during the election. And they turned a blind eye to every bad thing Obama did, the young Turks are super progressives. Th...
