#18 "If it’s better that 10 guilty men go free to spare one innocent, why not free 100 or 1,000,000? " But-but, isn't that what 'innocent until proven guilty' is all about?

Yep, you covered all the bases, Linda. The part you left out was the obvious conclusion--The U.S. is screwed and heading for the scrap heap of history.
Fable!? But Genesis isn't a fable? This is surreal!
Sorry, Jean Picard was not the first to determine the size of the earth. It was mathematician Eratosthenes of Cyrene, a Greek, born 276 BC – died 195/194 BC. But listing Catholic scientists to validate you religious sect seems silly to me. After all, the ones you listed were born long after the Catholic Church finally yielded to science.

Marriage: The Get-Rich-Quick Scheme

It's not merely that the woman will choose the man who makes more money, but also the man who appears to have what it takes to make more money, such as being white, having a valuable degree, speaks well, plays well with others--in other words the ability to climb the social ladder as an adjunct to climbing the job ladder. As for the outcomes of divorce, in Ohio, and maybe most other states, who gets what depends on a number of factors, such as the property each brought into the marriage, the income of each, number of children and support for each, etc. The guy usually pays out more because he usually has a higher income. But the opposite can occur if the wife has the higher income. I believe the divorce laws, being no-fault, are much fairer today. However, it's still possible for things to tilt in the woman's favor if there are allegations of abuse--real or fabricated.
A dumbed down educational system doesn't keep down those in the 20%. Not until every book is burned, the internet is censored out of existence and the dictionary of every language is shrunk to just a handful of words.
Could NOT care less, unless you're saying that your caring is non-zero. Which I doubt.
"City Threatens to Arrest Ministers Who Refuse to Perform Same-Sex Weddings" Completely understandable, since that's the only way anyone can get married. 'sarc]
I don't know how anyone learning this can doubt that Obama detests America. He's doing everything he can to defile it.

Are ISIS Fighters Learning to Fly Jets?

The article says they're flying them at low altitude to avoid radar. They give the rag heads too much credit. If recruits actually are flying them, they're flying them low so they can keep landmarks in sight, since they either don't know how to use their radar, or it's not working. If they end up using them, it'll be for suicide missions, not combat. Too bad we can't watch their air operations. It probably looks like the keystone cops, three stooges and a Chinese fire drill all rolled into one!
Anyone can find a way to end their life without assistance and without moving to another state. But once you get government, doctors, insurance companies involved, and relatives who put pressure on these agencies to assist a burdensome, and maybe wealthy, relative into their grave, you have the makings of a very undignified and unjust end. Leave well enough alone!
