    Pete Townsend of The Who got avoided prison for possessing child porn based on his claiming that he was doing "research." Actually he did more than possess it. He paid for access with a credit card. He got 5 years on an abuse registry though. (Really it's for life considering how famous he is). https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2209821/The-Whos-Pete-Townshend-breaks-year-silence-child-pornography-scandal.html

    I was responding to "Is Trump still bad" by analogy. Just because a president does something good doesn't mean he's not a bad president. So...technically you took the thread off topic.

    There are people on the sex offender registry for life because they were seniors in HS dating freshmen in HS and didn't stop once they turned 18. That makes no sense.

    Ah. Your main point for posting this was from an investor perspective. Got it. Yeah, I wouldn't buy any Uber or Lyft stock at this point. I wouldn't buy Amazon stock either, but last time I checked they have reached profitability. They dink around with the profit numbers to avoid paying taxes (i.e. spending money on Amazon prime) but they're making a boatload of money. And they are helping smaller operations make money through Amazon stores.

    Sure. That's the socialist term for why we need a minimum wage. People who are libertarians understand that in a free market people can choose what they want to make. There are Uber drivers who make $1,000 per week. In many parts of the country that is livable even considering the cost of fuel and maintenance. Most Uber/Lyft drivers use the platform as a side hustle anyway.

    That was before the deal was implemented. After the deal was done and Rand saw that Iran was complying he decided to support it. Trump pulled out of the deal after proof Iran was complying.

    I can think of at least four things Obama did that were good but that doesn't make him a good president IMO. (Allowing waivers to No Child Behind, eventually pulling us out of Iraq, the Iran nuke deal, undoing the Ronald Raygun ban on guns in national forests). Yes I think this is a good thing Trump has done. I'm more impressed with his First Step Act, money for inner city revitalization and money for HBCUs. I'm not impressed with his push for billions for a wall that even he has admitted does nothing to stop the flow of drugs or asylum seekers. I'm not impressed with face scanning cameras at airports or at the border or the bumpfire stock ban. I'm not impressed with his using the power of the federal government to propagandize for war with Iran and attack critics of that war. I'm not impressed with his going after Julian Assange, a man who arguably helped Trump get elected, and putting Chelsea Manning back in prison for refusing to lie in order to put an innocent man in prison. But yes, this particular move (and several others) are good.

    I agree it is likely to stay in place until SCOTUS rules on it. But it's also likely to stay in place AFTER SCOTUS rules on it. That SCOTUS wouldn't grant a temporary injunction on enforcement of the law is a bad omen. Any concrete examples of them going against stare decisis? Who is ACB?

    Pichai even hinted that if Google were subject to antitrust regulation, it would spell doom for American innovation, allowing competitors like China to seize the advantage. Google's massive size allows it to invest in future technologies without worrying about 'short-term profits,' CEO Sundar Pichai said in an interview on Thursday 'There are many countries around the world which aspire to be the next Silicon Valley, and they are supporting their companies too. So we have to balance both,' he said in response to a question about China. Well that should be enough to get Captain Orange on Google's side.

    What socialist wrote this? Sounds like Bernie Sanders who declared several years ago that he has a "serious problem" with Uber. Uber driver wages are "suppressed." Drivers can turn the app on or off whenever they choose. Many drivers use Uber, Lyft, Postmates and other driving gig apps all a the same time, switching to whatever is most profitable at the moment. That's why the Uber/Lyft "strike" didn't go anywhere. Few drivers knew about it and fewer cared. Uber bears almost none of the expense of the actual right (the app has to be maintained but that's not THAT expensive and that can be done offshore). Most of its expense comes from advertising (that can be scaled back because everybody has heard of them now) and maintaining a staffed office in every city for driver support. Uber typically staff's its driver support office with about 10 people. The Lyft office typically only has one. That's a lot of fat that can be trimmed without sacrificing the user experience. Most drivers never go into the office which means that's not even a requirement at all. They could take the position that if you are a driver that can't get his/her problem solved through the app or over the phone then maybe they're not the right fit. Ridesharing isn't going anywhere even if Uber goes under, which I doubt will happen. People used to yuck it up about how unprofitable Amazon was. Nobody's laughing about that now.

    That's Reagan's Air Force One. But the current Air Force One goes back to George H.W. Bush. (See: https://www.whitehouse.gov/about-the-white-house/air-force-one/) That means that George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and George W. Bush all used the same Air Force One. So....why does Trump need a new one? Is the last one broken?

    And while I do believe the BIble requires civil authorities to punish homosexuality, and with death as the maximum penalty, I don't think it would be legitimate even for the government to just round up people in a gay bar.

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.
