  1. Re: Protected Classes: Expand, Reduce or Maintain?

    This is an argument of semantics and pedantry. "Class" is both the legal and common usage term.

    Comeliness is a positive descriptor, not a class. You'll need to find a neutral label to go with...
  2. Re: Protected Classes: Expand, Reduce or Maintain?

    Lookism is discriminatory treatment toward people considered physically unattractive; mainly in the workplace but also in social settings.[1] While not classified in the same way as racial, cultural,...

    Re: Suicide Rate Increases 30% Since 1999

    My argument is that there is more reporting of celebrity suicides, not that more occur.


    If you're going to consider only the rate of suicide over the years, then those are all logical...

    Re: Suicide Rate Increases 30% Since 1999

    It is logical that it does put the idea into the minds of teenagers who wouldn't otherwise consider suicide as an option, and legitimizes that choice for those who are depressed, especially following...

    Suicide Rate Increases 30% Since 1999

    Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, and the suicide rate has increased 30% since 1999. The increase coincides with the increasing availability of news regarding...

    Re: Gun Control and your stance

    Here's an example of why good people should be allowed to carry guns. This guy is leaving work and gets attacked by a masked man with a wooden post and scissors. He might well be dead, except that...
  7. Re: Protected Classes: Expand, Reduce or Maintain?

    Where would you place sexual orientation and gender identity in all of that? Are they worthy of federal protection, state protection, or "social and market enforcement" (which I don't understand)?
  8. Re: Protected Classes: Expand, Reduce or Maintain?

    LOL!. I should have expected that.
  9. Protected Classes: Expand, Reduce or Maintain?

    A protected group or protected class is a group of people qualified for special protection by a law, policy, or similar authority. In the United States, the term is frequently used in connection with...

    Re: Women Should Not Have Equal Rights

    I came across this graph today, and it made me think of this old but important thread.

    As participation in the workforce by women increased from 1948 to 2010, it is oppositely mirrored by by a...
  11. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    But Sig, when bias becomes so all-consuming that virtually all the selected news reports and guest opinions are in line with that bias, it becomes a blatantly false representation of what is...

    Poll: Re: American School Shootings

    And that is now a way for the loners and the bullied to have their emotional needs of belonging fulfilled. By emulating school shooters who went before them, they are able to both join a club and...

    This is what he's got:

  14. Re: Republicans - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - Spygate

    Why should anyone believe a guy who is accused of being a spy, denies it, but refuses to be identified in a news story about him? Isn't that exactly what a spy would do, in an effort to avoid being...
  15. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    Why aren't you refuting my op?

    Given that Dem lies and Obama administration actions (apparently by Dem supporters in intelligence areas with Obama approval) created this nonsense effort to...
  16. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    And the equivalent would be me saying Trump is innocent of collusion because there is no evidence. But I'm not making that claim, so your AFI is as bogus as Dem claims of collusion.

    I've had it...
  17. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    Well, the Democratic National Committee has filed a lawsuit alleging a broad conspiracy between Russia, wikileaks and the Trump campaign. ...
  18. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    Okay nitpicker Mican, the Democrats and media who promote the idea of Trump-Russia collusion have offered no evidence that it is true.

    If an atheist says there is no evidence that God exists, is...
  19. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    If you feel that way, you are very welcome to not participate, boy. It's real easy. When you see a thread headline you don't like, just move on to the next one. Or maybe, here's a tougher one,...
  20. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    While I appreciate your reply, I think the only straw man here is yours, Sig. I never said or implied that the official investigation by the FBI (or the House committee) was about whether Trump...
  21. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    This is not a refutation, at all. You've offered no evidence. None. But that is exactly what I expected.

    Again no evidence against Trump or anyone else regarding "collusion with Russia". ...
  22. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    Enlighten me.

    In the mean time, you might also read the House Intelligence Committee final report that found NO EVIDENCE of collusion between Trump and Russia:

  23. Re: Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    Just for you, boy, I added a four word sentence to the op to forward an argument.
  24. Democrats - masters of the made up nonsense investigation - RussiaGate

    In this thread I will be looking for evidence that Trump colluded with Russia to illegally steal the 2016 presidential election, as Democrats and the liberal media have been claiming for more than a...

    Re: The Gender Pay Gap: convince me

    This is just unsupported personal opinion, of zero weight. If that's all you have, you lose.

    My argument, for which I've offered support, is that a great number of hiring managers have concerns...
