Mr. Chapman, You stated," In many places, most blacks have been consigned to inferior schools." Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell would surely agree that education is vitally important to economic mobility. As someone who actually experienced the Jim Crow era, Mr. Sowell personally learned the employment potential for a black teenage drop out was really bad. Was your line about inferior schools just part of the typical liberal laundry list of inner city problems that liberal policy positions sustain, or do you support school choice as a majority of black parents do? Freedom of choice in education would do far more to help the black community than the inane suggestion of reparations for past wrongs...but then, liberals are the gang that can't shoot straight even as black gangs shoot up each other in the urban dystopia created by liberal political fantasies.

Bill Clinton: The Most Forgivable Liar?

Brain, Is the lie and arrogant finger wagging " I didn't have sexual relations with that woman" press conference really none of anyone's business? Depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is- right Brain?? Well Brain, maybe Bill didn't inhale but you must have. Enjoy your buzz and have another big glass of cool aid.
The minimum number may be the same, but the number required for a perfect score is not the same. Combat is probably not the best place to embrace minimums at the expense of maximums...and as the article states, "The requirement was tested in 2013 on female recruits at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C., but only 45 percent of women met the minimum."
Evolution can carry the ideas of random change, law directed change, unlimited change, or limited change. Even the theory of evolution does not accept random change. The law of survival directs evolution. The theory seems to accept unlimited change - the boundary between species is thought permeable. Bacterial can evolve into humans. Humans can evolve into bacteria. I think that many who reject the theory of evolution reject random change, accept law directed change, reject unlimited change and accept limited change within boundaries. T he boundary between bacteria and humans is impermeable. Within limits, bacteria can change,but not into men. Within limits, human nature can change. Humans can become saints or demons, but not gods. Human nature is flexible but fixed. A more basic law than mere survival fixes human nature. Against that more basic law, atheists and progressives rebel. The naivety that science proves that no more basic law is needed to explain human nature is intellectual imperialism and is revealed by the contempt thrown at theists by those who believe in 'Evolution'. The theory of evolution has some explanatory power, but it seems an inadequate explanation for the complexity of human nature.
Rondoman, Did you consider Loyalprog as a satirist? .... "the government has managed to locate numerous citizens who are guilty of crimes, many of which were committed unknowingly by the perpetrator. As has been confirmed, the NSA has composed a list of these unwary, clandestine criminals, and once Homeland Security is fully armed, the scofflaws can be rounded up and concentrated into camps where their loyalty to The State can be determined.... How can anyone take something so over the top seriously?

G, You are a 'wise' man/person who seems limited to weak one liners as far as I can tell. I suppose you have faith in brain emergence theory as a dogmatic necessity for your metanarrative. I suppose you struggle with metaphysics in general. I suppose you can not articulate your metanarrative very well, so you compensate for your inability with what you perceive as pithy pearls of 'wisdom.'

G, Do you make that claim subjectively or do you have an objective proof to share with us?

I hope you are able to notice the distinction between paying for an employee benefit and imposing a religious belief on an employee. If not, you certainly do not believe your statement where rights begin and end, but are indifferent to the employer. The employer can not ban anything and employment is not bound servant hood. The employee can sell their labor where there is 'free' Ella or mifepristone as part of the employee's compensation package.
BearKoala, George Orwell suggested that strict adherence to the orthodox language of a dogmatic belief leads toward to the narrowing of one's thinking; to reach a point of not even being able to conceive of an idea. I can think of no other explanation for your apparent belief that Biden isn't a clown of the first order. May I suggest you search something like "Biden gaffes."
BearKoala, Interesting that you could vote to put a clown like Biden one heartbeat from the Oval Office. Your decision placed a bigger clown than even McCain actually in the Oval office.
