  1. That is of course, after "they" tell him what progress he wants. We're getting a good preview of the idiocy that will be.
  2. It's not a "fix" per say but really having a friend or two who you can tell anything to and trust the confidentiality is crucial. Even if you have to seek out a person or two that you completely trust and have them as a sounding board and confidante. I have a couple of best friends who I can do that with but I also established (weird at first but now it really works) a contact that I'm not great friends with, but completely trust his judgement and character. He is, for lack of a better term, my "accountability" partner. We don't always hang out and he's a bit eccentric at times, but I trust hi
  3. I just read the free chapter. Looks like it would be a fun read!
  4. did you mean westbound? East is the short way home to the U.S. West coast, unless they were down under India somewhere and then it's closer to 50/50 on what direction to fly.
  5. anything that the eavesdropper disagrees with
  6. I guess I was mostly surprised that they put it right out there in words, for all to see. Didn't even have the decency to hide the truth while screwing somebody.
  7. "This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast," a Space Force spokesperson said in an email. "Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity." I find this very problematic. So, lets fire the commander while we determine if his words are an issue/problem and violate any rules.
  8. Now you're talking complete shit. there is universal agreement by medical and scientific communities that human life is present the moment of conception. The only discussion might be the term "person". You might not like that fact anymore than I like the idea that "person"hood can be debated, but its established fact.
  9. https://tennesseestar.com/2021/04/30/bill-declaring-personhood-begins-at-conception-passes-tennessee-general-assembly/?fbclid=IwAR22VarNKCbp0EE4zJ3YAhOZYonsOO0AjufAD-Wkcx8kj31_17Oy6boFQa0 This recently happened here in TN. Here, according to criminal law, an unborn child is a "person", but this wasn't true in civil law. I'm not sure if the Governor signed it yet, but once he does, it will be true in civil law also.
  10. Now that its out of the other thread I'll add my .02 again. We have a definition of human life according to science and there really is no debate there, but as Prozac pointed out "person" might be a little more nuanced. I think you have to be pro abortion to nitpick that, but that is just my opinion and I'm definitely not a linguistics expert. Edit to add: I do acknowledge that current US law for citizenship doesn't recognize a person for citizenship until they are born. So, with that standard, the "person" protection afforded by the constitution could be argued not to apply until the bab
  11. I'm not arguing against abortion because of my religious view. That was a statement highlighting that because science now confirms that a fetus is a human (fully understood and yes settled - once the egg is fertilized), they agree. The supreme court acknowledged, when they somehow pulled the roe v wade ruling out of their rear, that if science showed that a fetus was a human life (person), then a different ruling would have been made. "We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. When those trained in the respective disciplines of medicine, philosophy, and theology are
  12. I'm pretty sure he doesn't even know what he meant. I left any "religious belief" out of everything I wrote, and last time I checked a "person" is an individual.
  13. That's about the worst example you could use for an extreme view. The Constitution, science, logic, and religion all agree on abortion. It's not a right or left issue, its a human life and death issue. The Declaration of Independence and our Constitution both speak to our individual right to life. ("We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." - "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immuni
  14. Never said it wasn't capitalism, just said it wasn't unencumbered, free range as I quoted. Of course we live in a capitalistic society, it's just one where all of the government checks and balances have been corrupted and big money/corporate influence has overtaken any sense of a free market. When huge businesses get tax breaks and tax and other governmental privileges it's not free range capitalism at all, it's a marketplace bought and paid for with the government protecting the big players.
