    If you add up the basic numeric equivalents for each letter in my name, you get 123. If you use the 1-9 means of assigning numbers to those same letters, the total is 33 --- year of Christ. And yes, a lack of logic does cause me to reject information. It's in my nature I guess :) Or maybe I was born in 1947 (everyone born in that year is a spook).

    I like the part about how people who watch Game of Thrones are messed up, which the author knows from not watching the show, but looking up a 16-minute montage of nude scenes. People who look up montages of nudity contained in shows they are too good to watch are definitely not messed up.

    Stop the bickering and personal attacks; they are against the guidelines, no one cares about it and they just degrade the site. Focus on the issues, ideas and logic. Please go read the guidelines and follow them. Thank you.

    No, businesses (mostly restaurants) that only accept cash as payment. It's going well for them.

    I actually had a direct conversation with Raimondo on Twitter in the winter. I know Raimondo's direct line of thinking on yeah thanks for the tip... He has no clue what he is talking about. Trumps people aren't "catching on". They will jump on anything spoon fed to them and 4 years later the "issues" Raimondo thinks Trump brought to light will go right back in the old memory hole.

    And Raimondo didn't go ga ga over Bush the way he has for Trump. Very disappointed in him.

    Not a problem. My issue is that a lot of the people who seem to object to me speaking Spanish in public seem completely incapable of stringing together a coherent sentence of their own. Personally, I prefer market solutions to language preference as I stated earlier. There are certain ethnic markets where you're almost required to speak whatever the shop's products' national origin demands. Hell, there are certain areas of the country where you might be better off speaking another language to order a soup or cup of coffee. From an official standpoint, I have no problem with English becoming the official language of documents and phone lines and other such Government services (since we have them at all). Groups could easily translate those materials if a certain area has a need for them. There's certainly no shortage of people who can guide others through a brochure or process, and perhaps for a very small acknowledgement on the back of a pamphlet, La Raza could do something other than race bait and give people ammo to extend the hatred that keeps the organization in business. Let me extend this to what you said in your response. When you go to the store and everyone else is speaking Spanish, the issue is twofold. The first is that the patrons are speaking Spanish, which really should not bother you unless you feel a strange need to know what everyone around you is saying. Eavesdropping? :p The second is actually far more serious, though, which is that you can't do business with employees who can't communicate with you. I have voiced concerns along those lines in the past at some delightful Asian markets with mixed success. If they want your money, a business is going to do its best to help you out. The school example goes back to what I just said. Official languages dictate how public schools should operate. There are going to be a LOT of kids whose English is subpar, and at that point they should be taught within their own communities or at least tutored on that specific issue. There will be many people who fail going through school that way, but the ones that emerge tend to be well-rounded, truly bilingual, and a step ahead of their peers. And as for the custard? Again, the owner should be able to install whatever policies he or she wishes, and for whatever reasons. Let's assume the guy really is just the biggest racist ever. The next action shouldn't be to grab a pitchfork and go after him. It should be to shrug my shoulders and say "Okay. So?" and either order some custard or go somewhere else :)

    Whitewright city secretary Beth Woodson told KXII Channel 12 that she resigned from her position because she “morally and ethically can’t work for the new mayor because of his stance on marijuana” Robbing people of their money and jailing them when no ones rights have been violated is moral and ethical?

    A couple of things to add. "Africa" is a very large place. Yeah, actually, a lot of it was pretty amazing for a very long time. The particular combination of resources and relative isolation of civilizations, though, made it ripe for other groups to come in and exploit those resources. The very first to exploit slaves, gold, and other resources were fellow Africans. From there, it was only a hop skip and jump for people to swoop in and mine, etc.. It doesn't mean that the people coming in were evil, or that the natives were all noble savages, or any similar idiocy. Also, I really don't mind racist as a label. I do think it would get tossed around a little less if it weren't the equivalent of shouting "fire" in a crowded theater. Most people are at least a little racist, and some are incredibly (almost comically) racist. Until they take steps to harm someone or institutionalize their hatred into depriving people of rights (real rights, btw, not "the right to free stuff" type rights), it's fine with me. Lynching someone --- ANYONE --- is pretty godawful. It wouldn't be any prettier if the victim were other-than-black. Calling someone a name, though, just reveals your true colors and the person on the receiving end gets to decide how to react to it. Remember that? When you had to decide whether to fight, walk away, or come up with a witty retort? Before people called the cops because their safe space was violated?

    If there's an issue with foreigners learning English, the implication is that native speakers can at least "reach the peddles" and learn to speak properly. The person I was quoting was applauding the idea that foreigners don't "talk English good" and that it's a major part of the problem. It's merely a pet peeve of mine for some reason. Carry on.

Marching to War Requires Two Feet
by Matt Malkus

America has become a nation marching to war in lockstep, left foot following right foot towards the all-too-certain future that has already befallen the body's other half. Crushing electoral defeats serve as little deterrent in a political system where the pendulum swings comfortably on the same axis, the defeat coming at the hands of the opposite extreme which just as aggressively pursues the same noble goals via the same dead
