    Re: Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes

    There are many aspects of the human condition which we have good reasons to try and control or limit. The fact that, at one point in our evolution, individual greed apparently allowed some of our...

    Re: Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes

    There are two valid methods of determining a value for taxation purposes: market value, and tax assessor's valuation. In what way does the Trumps' conduct of grossly understating the value in order...

    Not god-hating, just pointing out the absurdity of holding to Xtian theism while at the same time not caring about the injustice of tax avoidance by the rich & entitled. The fact that you try to...

    Re: Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes

    There are some considerable issues with your position as you've stated it here. Simply put, there are good reasons why we should pay the full tax that we owe. There are also good reasons why we...

    Great! From your earlier position of "it is very possible", I'll take that as a victory!

    Your logic simply doesn't follow. If the person is a monk ho has no interest in the money and was not...

    Re: Christianity is a conspiracy

    If you take the time to read the thread, you'll see that the discussion moves away from the simple & broad argument in the OP.
  8. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    This does not address the main issue with your theory I pointed out. Again, someone motivated by money who was planning to lie would have no assurance of profit after overcoming the financial...
  9. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    Not really. Prior to coming forward, there would be no way of knowing for sure whether any appeal to charity would work, and to what extent. Considering how chaotically this whole thing has gone...

    And again, an FBI investigation would help prove that if it were true.

    The allegations, and whether the statements made by each are true. Numerous benefits of the FBI's involvement have already...
  11. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    Well, that's not entirely accurate. Nobody other than Kavanaugh has actually made any statement that what she's claiming did not happen. They simply stated that they have no memory of it. Her friend,...
  12. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    Again, the reason for allowing sexual assault victims more time is the proven difficulty in coming forward. This reasoning has nothing to do with the reasoning behind no SoL for murder such as...
  13. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    Yeah, it looks like Kavanaugh is grandfathered in. I still think it makes sense that it should be, for the reasons already given.

    It strikes me that most of your points about the need for a SoL...
  14. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    This is an interesting point considering Maryland currently has no SoL on attempted rape. So the question then becomes whether a removal of the SoL works retroactively to remove the limitation from...

    No, I'm not. I never claimed that it's a tragedy because of some ultimate meaning. I stated that it's a tragedy because of the suffering the person goes through and the...

    Re: Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    No, your argument, per the OP, is that paedophilia is classified as a disorder because of laws but it shouldn't be, which you've failed to support. If you want to make a separate argument, then...

    The statement you quoted is part of a completely separate area of discussion which has no bearing on how paedophilic disorder is classified.

    Actually no, there were studies and scientific opinions available to those making the decision to remove it. What studies can you cite which were justification for it being included?
