    Depends on what you go for. If I had it to do over, I would not have gone to college. I make $20+ /hr as a nurse with a bachelor's (the lowest-paying state in the nation for nurses, GA). Last year, I paid a plumber $125 to do about 20 minutes of work. Sure some of that was parts, but damn. What is plumbing school? 9 months of vocational study? If that.

    As a smoker and a taxpayer, I've got mixed feelings on this. I'm leaning more towards: you ought not be spending money on cigs if you're living in public housing. I'm paying for a roof over your head and that fungible money allows you to fund habits you'd otherwise have to sacrifice. Now if I felt that this was a slippery slope towards government telling us that we can't smoke on private property even though the property owner has no issue with it . . . actually they already do that. Best case scenario is that this pisses off enough people that they get off their asses and get their own place on their own dime. And if that happens, i'll even let 'em bum a cig off me.

    I approach the issue as learning from the experiences of others. That was my point, and not meant to be hypocritical. It's a bit too late to try to save Native American culture as it once existed. It's probably not too late to save ours. Yet, I understand that many people don't put much stock in cultural roots. I suppose its one of those, 'don't know what you've got 'til it's gone' type of things. Anyways, save a good spot for me on the reservation.

    It has a lot to do with it because you must be able to justify why consent is right, on a metaphysical level, given the assumption that there is no God. If you can't justify objectively why consent ought to be the precondition for proper sexual behavior, then you are asserting an idea without a just basis for it. In other words, you are being arbitrary. You're essentially arguing that two people must consent to a sexual act because you think consent is good. But then someone else can be equally arbitrary and say that consent is irrelevant when it comes to fulfilling their sexual lusts (as pedophiles, rapists, and others do). That's the consequence of your idea on sexual behavior, especially in a world without the sovereignty of a personal God.

    You're glad I'm anti-Trump because you are anti-liberty. You want more intervention from the federal government into our personal lives, into the marketplace, and into the affairs of foreign nations. That's exactly what Trump stands for, and that is just as evil as "pedophiles running our government."

    Now you've made the problem more difficult because consent necessarily implies free will. In a universe of just random processes subject to non-sentient matter on a subatomic level, there can be no such thing as "free will" because matter just operates based on forces enacted against it. Just as rocks fall to the ground by gravitational processes, the human brain just does whatever it does based on random electrochemical processes. Therefore, there can be no true consent whereby a person is free to choose one behavior from another behavior simply because he is subject to whatever processes his brain forces him to act. But if we take the idea of consent up to another level, and with the assumption that the universe is not under the influence of a personal God, then we must ask why consent, itself, ought to be the determining factor for correct any behavior. Children do not consent to their parent's discipline before they are spanked, for instance, yet we all realize that the consent of the child is irrelevant for such matters. Criminals don't consent to being taken away to prison before they are arrested, either, but we recognize that their consent is moot in matters of justice. So, philosophically speaking, you have to show objectively why consent is true, so that it can be asserted as a proper ethical standard in sexual behavior, no matter if a person accepts consent or not. And you have to apply it as that standard for these biological bags of meat and bones with electricity flowing through them known as "human beings." Otherwise, you are just being arbitrary. And if you want to be arbitrary, then someone else can come along and impose his sexual standards by rejecting consent as the precondition for acceptable sexual behavior (as do the "pedophiles running our government" towards little boys and girls).

    If you don't believe in the triune God of Scripture, then you can't have an absolute nor consistent reason to condemn pedophilia. By Evolutionary reasoning and precepts (and there are many naturalists and ethicists who would agree that), pedophilia is just another sexual behavior like homosexuality, bisexuality, polygamy, polyandry, necrophilia, phytophilia, and bestiality derived from a person's "natural" desires by the means of natural selection. If you're going to argue that homosexuality is okay but then turn around and condemn pedophilia, then you are a hypocrite. So, my point is determining whether or not pedophilia is a natural consequence of evolutionary descent is the prerequisite before anyone condemns "pedophiles running our government," if one denies that God has any authority in our sexual habits and desires.

    Ditto. Everyone uses the Native Americans as an example of how we have no right suggest we should be able to stop people from crossing a border. I use the Native Americans as an example of what will happen if you don't.

    I know people say machines are easy to hack, but absentee ballots are a f*king joke. In Georgia, if you have voted even once before in your life, I.D. is not required when you mail in an absentee ballot. You have to have I.D. if you show up to vote early or vote in person. Sounds pretty easy to exploit mail-in ballots if you ask me. In fact, my mother here in Georgia went to vote for the first time in a few decades, and she was told by the polling worker that she couldn't be issued a ballot card, because it appeared she already voted. She got the lady to somehow clear her ballot card so she could vote, but the only way someone could have tried to vote for her is by using an absentee ballot. She would have been the ideal person to try to vote for, someone who hasn't voted in forever but has in the past, so she wouldn't need I.D. for a mail-in ballot, and they were probably as surprised as I was to learn she intended to actually vote this year.

    I don't think Hillary Cheaton wants a recount. If anything, she's probably hoping they don't re-examine the voting too closely. Now, whether or not some Electoral College members might get 'mysteriously disappeared', is another matter.

    And yet, by their own behavior, no one will ever trust them. It's very important that a free press expose the truth. But, these guys are tainted. They have baggage. Maybe they all go under and new media arises. Or even better, people stop watching the news altogether and start talking to each other. After 2 years of being told our neighbors are racists, we just went next door to see for ourselves and found out that it wasn't true. The mainstream media has utterly failed us as a vehicle for delivering the truth, there's no reason to think they'll start now, and there's no reason to fret over the loss of a role that never existed. Throw it in the woods. We've discovered more truths by reading Clinton's emails than we ever have or will from the MSM as it exists today. That should tell you how f'ked up things are.

    The main difference is that 90% of the media networks were thoroughly backing Obama. Remember when Chris Matthews had tingles down his legs? People didn't realize (or perhaps, want to realize) how buddy-buddy the (now obviously-)liberal media elites were with the democrats until they reached the point of outrageously blind promotion with Hillary Clinton. I'm still absolutely shocked that they played their hands so openly. I doubt you could find one negative article during the campaign about Hillary Clinton between the lot of them. Of course some are scrambling to re-portray themselves as beacons of journalistic integrity, but I really don't think there's any going back from the obvious bias they displayed this year. Trump has realized something. The more they attack him, the stronger his support grows. Granted, not too many people want a strong Trump, for the same reason no one particularly wants a strong 'anyone' in the White House. But I absolutely LOVE that the media has NO idea how to react to this situation. In the past, they have always been able to control the fate of politicians with a 30 minute news broadcast. That, is a tremendous and necessary power for a free press, but an abused power in the hands of agenda-driven corporate media elites. They squandered every bit of credibility they had with moderates and independents this election, and have doomed themselves to merely preaching to the choir for the rest of his administration. SJWs and perpetual college students with no real goals in life are indeed a loyal audience, and will be all too happy to keep tuning in, but most of America has turned off their TV sets. Just as on the campaign trail, I warned that attacking Trump after he became the face of the grassroots (whether or not it was a deserved role) would only make him stronger. If they were smart, they wouldn't say a thing about him for the next 4 years, just as they should have stopped talking about him before he even made it out of the primaries. But they just can't resist, like moths to the light, they're gonna make him stronger. For better or worse.

    'Racism' doesn't carry with it the sting of stigmatism that it used to. We have probably come full circle. 200 years ago practically no one cared if you were racist because no one really talked about it. Today, few care because there's too damn many people talking about it, usually needlessly. Why do I not care if someone is a 'racist'? Maybe there was a time when you might have convinced me to put down the potato chips and set aside the keyboard to rally against racism, but frankly it takes too much energy anymore to: (A) validate whether the claim of racism is true (this is the most critical hang-up, because I'm skeptical of damn near every accusation now, thanks to the wolf-criers) (B) spend so much energy to try to vilify someone else for holding misguided beliefs. Being a racist in and of itself isn't exactly a crime, you know, but it doesn't seem to stop people from wailing about it until it is (see Great Britain, or any other Euro nation, and how far they are down the rabbit hole of enforcing hate crimes and hate speech laws).
