An ethics course is not supposed to be a one-way dialogue to indoctrinate students; it is meant to show students how to develop ethics in a sound and methodical way. A good teacher will do this without letting the class fall into unruly or irregular behavior. There are good arguments for and against gay marriage, but this teacher may know that she does not have the educational rigor to defent the ethics of gay marriage and therefore chose to opt out of the argument altogether. She has broadcasted her own teaching incompetence.

I was at the gates in LaGuardia Airport; every seat had a iPad where one could order dinner and drinks, pay for them with a credit card,mcheck on the flight and surf the Net. There must have been >300 iPads in that area alone. So the small concession could now serve and support the entire area instead of the formerly small eating area. A win-win for the restaurant and the travelers.

It was most definitely President Obama's fault that he could not convince or persuade Maliki; we elected him to lead, not to follow.

One speech does not kill a career. Bill Clinton was booed off the stage at the DNC convention in 1988 when he gave arguably the worst nomination speech ever in American history. And four years later became the 42nd president

He was born in Baton Rouge, LA in 1971; that makes him a natural born US citizen

Quote: Remember: Obamacare cannot be repealed without 66 votes in the Senate.Unquote This is not true or factual. Thanks to Chief Justice Roberts, who everyone on the right loves to hate, the ACA is controlled by a tax, not a fine. This means that it only takes a 51 vote majority to be repealed because tax discussions are not subject to filibuster.
