  1. Re: Amazon Fires - Manufactured Crisis by the Left

    1. There is a difference between not caring and actively denying and ridiculing. The right is mostly dead set in denying the basic observations much less the best way to react. There are exceptions....

    Re: Who is my neighbor?

    Let's see if I can clear this up.

    The OP and arguments like it are not saying "We need to have taxes to help the poor."

    They are saying "Jesus was happy to help the poor, why aren't you?"

    Re: Religious Exemption Laws

    Yet many seem to feel their religious conviction means they must deny their products and services to others, a form of punishment for what they thing is behavior against their religion. The merchant...

    Re: Religious Exemption Laws

    A person doesn't put their religion aside in any circumstance. Not in the military, not in the government, not anywhere. But just because you want to punish the wicked doesn't mean you have leave to...

    Re: Religious Exemption Laws

    I see the purpose of the first amendment as two-fold.
    1. To protect religious expression and belief from persecution by the state (and to do so, protect the state from religious affiliation).
    2. To...
  6. Re: Amazon Fires - Manufactured Crisis by the Left

    The article Balthazor shared was rainforests worldwide as where you are looking at the Amazon forest only.



    There is some truth to that, but it's also a lot of speculation. Sometimes big...
  7. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    No. I mean on a level of personal judgment. I think it is irresponsible behavior. You put your family and others in your community at increased danger based on what seems to me to be an irrational...
  8. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    Hmmm you must be on a phone.

    You can not trust people all day long, I don't much care.

    The facts are: Vaccines are largely safe. Vaccines are super effective at fighting diseases. It's...

    I agree it is not racist on its face, though it is also how I'd describe the white house at the moment.
  11. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    "Something is going on" is not a point, its a vague utterance with no real meaning. A point would say what you think is going on and ideally include why and how.

    The pressure from "Pro-Vaxers" is...

    A number of studies have been carried out and demonstrated that Theriomersal does not lead to any kind of mercury poisoning (as advocates claim) nor has autism ben positively linked to mercury...
  13. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    Indeed, it does get me riled up when people who are otherwise fairly smart get taken in by outright lies and deception. Especially when the result is further spread of these deceptions and the...

  15. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    I got them from the abstract you posted. What did you think it meant? It saying they did a review of other studies from that period and this is how many such reactions they noted from those studies....
  16. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    Why exactly?

    A meta-study from 2008 to 2011 - 4 years time, reports that 120 patients who got vaccinations reported moderate to severe manifestations within 54 days of getting said vaccination...

    Re: China's Organ Harvesting Holocaust

    Yep, that's it. I don't think it is wise for one nation to decide to murder a lot of people in the hopes they will stop others from murdering people in a place they can't reasonably control and...
  19. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    After your explanation, my perception remains unchanged. I think your reasons for your view are based on emotional responses to western medicine rather than reason and knowledge and as a result,...

    Re: pro-choice argument

    Partly, it means you can introduce a surrogate of some kind and expect that might succeed.



    I think we can say that taking someone's kidney unless they are dead already, represents real bodily...
  21. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    You're very welcome.

    I want to avoid too much direct argument, but let me explain some of why I came to those conclusions.

    For #3: I asked twice what you thought was the strongest evidence....

    Re: 75 Ways Socialism Has Improved America

    I think the list plays fast and loose with the term Socialism. That said so do the critics of progressive policy so I suppose fair is fair.

    I myself use the military and also American family...

  24. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    This is the one I'm interested in. I might be mildly curious about your own decision making, but it's the public policy I think is worthy of debate.



    OK, that seems very reasonable.

    I think the supreme court wrestled with this and came to the right conclusion.

    When the child is of viable age then the mother's body autonomy only outweigh the state's interest in preserving the...
  26. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    What threshold do you think is compelling enough?



    What do you think is the best evidence that Vaccines are in the public interest?
    Why do you not find that evidence compelling?
  27. Re: Mind Trapped by: Ask a Vaccine Hesitant anything.

    Well, I guess the first question would be, what are your thoughts and opinions on vaccines?

    Personally, I think that if a disease is very contagious and an effective vaccine exists for it, then...
