Love your response. :)
If it were only true. The Olympics is swathed in politics, from refusing to allow the Taiwan government to describe itself as Chinese to the shameful treatment of Israeli athletes. I support all the athletes, just not the IOC.
Since the death of Major League Baseball in '94 (Players' strike) I don't pay too much attention to sports, I just got too disgusted by the prospect of millionaires fighting with other millionaires over money. Major league sports are billion dollar businesses and should be taxed and treated as such, not as some kind of hobby. Oh, I still watch a game now and then but I'm more familiar with the players from the '70s than today's teams.
Time to ban the EPA. It's one thing to reduce pollution and clean up particulates in the air but carbon dioxide is a natural, indeed critically important, constituent of the air. Plants need it and when concentrations go up plant life proliferates.

One fact ignored by this article is that men are more likely to die on the job than women as a result of taking on more dangerous jobs. Nine of 10 employees who die on the job are men. Look at how many women work at the truly dangerous jobs, not many. Men take on the more dangerous jobs as a way of increasing their income, women are much less likely to do so and accept less pay for more safety. If you want more money ladies - earn it.
It never ceases to amaze me that people can continually demand Israel make concession after concession all the while ignoring the many times the Palestinians have refused to honor their commitments. What other country is subjected to this idiocy? As for Jerusalem, no one can tell a sovereign nation where to locate their capitol.
I watched it a few times last year. I was in the hospital and the clicker on my bed didn't work.

"But if you're going to call yourself a defender of the First Amendment, please defend the whole thing and not just the parts you make a living from." Kinda naive ain'tcha?

That 'super coil' idea is old as the hills, it was just used in a different way. Inuits used to take whale blubber and thin bones they wound into coils. They would take the coils coat them with whale blubber and let them freeze. They would use them to hunt polar bears. They would distribute the frozen balls of blubber where they expected a polar bear to find them. They would hide and wait for a polar bear to eat the balls of blubber. They would thaw in its stomach and the bear would eventually die. Apparently Gosnell and Karman thought it appropriate 'treatment' for pregnant women.
How can God let something like this to happen? Because he gave us free will and if he acted to stop every evil thing by definition it wouldn't be free will. He could have created us and forced us to worship him but he made that optional. it is a depraved humanity that has allowed evil to take over their lives that commits these terrible sins. God provides solace to those afflicted, it only takes acquiescence of humans to his will.
