Re: Cooling down: a more palatable thread?

It would occasionally show up in my youth - possibly when visiting my Florida relatives - and we'd cut a small piece and chew it. I don't recall much beyond that.

Re: Elizabeth Warren's

That still doesn't make this a good idea. But I have not yet see anyone argue why the current status quo -- "the company MUST survive, no matter how many crimes the company (as opposed to individual rogue employees acting on their own) has committed" -- is any improvement. Oh yeah it's an improveme...

Re: The real criminal is the judge

Yeah it's evidence, and potentially exculpatory if someone specific showed up, but almost any normal suspect should have their DNA show up if they are in contact with the victims with any regularity, or are even just in the same vicinity at different times. I think the guy has now admitted to it, fw...

Re: The real criminal is the judge

Yeah, but what the defense is probably looking for is 'contact DNA' which is very very trace amounts of DNA left by incidental contact. You might expect to find contact DNA if some unknown assailant had had his hands around the girls' necks to strangle them. Which might exonerate the husband. Except...

Re: Marriage is Totally Gay

One 'whites only' lunch counter in town isn't a problem, segregation all over town is. I'm not sure where it tips. I am sure that in 2018 America it's not necessary to force people to provide their services to all race, gender, religion, because discrimination based on those criteria is not general...

She was going with an over the top example to get her point across. Is there a godwin for child rape now? We might need one. Also. Why is everyone flipping out?

Re: Elizabeth Warren's "Accountable Capitalism Act"

I think she was trying to make a point about completely corrupted organizations. It's certainly not an exact metaphor, but I understood her point. It's also notable that the Catholic Church, like Wells Fargo, can be credited with some good works as well as terrible activities. I'm not sure the for-...

We can argue with the value/morality of forcing someone to do business under the limited circumstances of racial/religious/gender discrimination, but that limited circumstance should not be confused with a blanket ban on free association. Outside of complete totalitarian hellholes, nobody ever does...
