commented on The Return of Youth Pastor Watch
Is there anyone who can point me to a number of total assaults on children by priests (pastors, youth pastors, etc)? It seems to me that that ever-growing number should be included everywhere these issues come up. Especially because trans people have an equivalent count of of ZERO.
commented on The First Zika Case Has Been Reported in Washington State
I've always wondered, how do they know how many people have what flu-like virus? I used to go to my doctor and he would yawn, tell me I have the flu, and then usually offer me amoxicillin, ti to make sure I got my money's worth. Never a blood test, or really much of anything. And it's not that my doctor was bad, every other one I've ever had was about the same.

We need a new word for that substance which is playing the part of bread, but isn't. Like almond "milk" our soy "meat." Isn't this what the National Guard is for?

commented on Another Plane Forced to Land After a Fight Breaks Out Over Reclining Seats
The problem is not the person who reclines. They paid for that. The problem is the tall person who doesn't want to pay for the legroom they want. They prefer the person in from to get less for what they paid. It is a monetary exchange through force. It is only "uncourteous" if the person behind bought too-small a seat, and expects the person in front to subsidize the space.

commented on Russia Is Invading Ukraine and Nobody Seems Able or Willing to Do Anything About It
This is what the U.S. looks like to the rest of the world whenever we do one of our little military adventures. In Geopolitics, might makes right, it's just as simple as that. I don't like it, but the stronger countries can make laws to justify anything they want.
What if Russia said, " we had our top lawyers check to make sure this was legal, and they said it was, so that is the end of that".
America, meet mirror.
