  1. Wow. That's quite an accusation. Please elaborate on the laws being skirted and what evidence you have.
  2. Rumor has it that you should also avoid consuming or bathing in unknown chemical waste.
  3. The problem with Drakes' simplistic statement is that it seems to dismiss the complexity of this world and boil everything down to a cute little bumper sticker slogan. The law already recognizes that complexity. For example, two different people may kill another person by striking them in a pub. But if one did so because the fellow was of a different race, and the other did so because that person described how he was going to abuse the guy's children, their punishment will be different. And rightly so. If I steal because I am going through a psychotic episode due to a prescribed drug reaction, I obviously should not be held to the same standard as someone who steals because they are showing off for their friends. Where to draw the line is subjective, but at least our justice system is trying to be, well, just.
  4. How very paternalistic of you.
  5. I have no idea what you are rambling on about. You are obviously angry but over what or whom is a complete mystery.
  6. Sounds like you are saying that homelessness or similar problems is due to poor family planning. Did I understand you correctly? Again, can you expand on who the American civilians are that you are referring to? And what law enforcement exactly? And finally, what do you mean by "put them down for good"?
  7. I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken. 😃
  8. Of course you did. You said it right here: You may not have initially been seeking God as the "answer", but you certainly assumed him up front and that obviously came into play. If you had no concept of God to begin with, you would not have concluded 'God' at the end.
  9. What really gets my blood boiling is when I'm eating a banana and it has some of those stringy things on it that didn't come off when I peeled it.
  10. Really? I would have guessed religion. Or maybe racism. Or bigotry.
  11. One of my favorite kinds of posts is the new guy who tells us what we are doing wrong. Right up there with those who compare themselves to Galileo because we don't accept their views on the Flat Earth.
  12. For example, 13. Outgrowing any type of elitism, technical or otherwise. How does one test that? What are the success criteria? These sound like grand ideas, not specific goals of a test project. Again, I'm just wondering if more specific goals are in place at this time or if it has not yet progressed to that stage.
