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.

commented on Slog Bible Study: Luke 12:48
This is one of those that is only a metaphor, or only refers to its specific time period, or the true meaning has been lost to history, or it is so symbolic in fact that for somebody to try to make it sound like this says anything about the poor or the rich or taking care of the poor, is simply blasphemy--BLASPHEMY I SAY!
