It's fun re-reading the rootvg posts.

We'll be seeing more of this as the Trumpkins will handwave every poll showing Clinton with a crushing lead all the way to November. Some people never learn

Yes, there will be a contested convention. And it will be ugly.

You just refuse to admit that "knowing it is very unlikely to exist" is the same as "knowing it doesn't exist".

You're making your own mistake of defining God as a thing that can be known to exist or not. This is common, in fact I would say it is a fact that all atheists that make a big deal of knowing God does not exist are defining what the existence of God would mean in a number of ways.

IF a believer doesn't agree with any of those definitions, then that means the atheist and the believer (at least sometimes) aren't even talking about the same thing.

I have to say, this really sounds like an argument for Theological noncognitivism. If so, then I agree.

Relax, the judge rejected her arguments and she's most likely going to prison. Of course her lawyer is arguing that she is innocent, that's his job.

Its my understanding that the charges included child porn of six year olds. That's illegal everywhere.

Whats the big deal? I didn't listen closely (have actual work to do) but it sounds like she just ended a relationship with someone she didn't love, which sounds like it was the right thing to do. And she wants to be someone's homemaker/housewife - so what? There are plenty of people who want that type of relationship.

She should quit smoking though.

Great thread. More evidence that Trump has less impulse control than my 7 year old daughter

Your cartoons have completely refuted my citations. I am well rebuked.

You do know who owns PolitiFact, right?

Tampa Bay Times. Whatever; you can read all of their fact check; they are quite transparent about how they work. If you think they are wrong about some things you're welcome to come up with your own interpretation. But the discrepancy in truthfulness is so huge that you can't just write it off to bias unless you're going to bring something more than cartoons to the table. That is, if you want anyone outside of your little cheer circle to take you seriously (you genuinely don't seem to care).

I think for the next debate they should dispense with the pleasantries and just unzip and measure

Was I having a bad acid flashback or did Trump brag about his dick size last night? The fact checkers better get to work on that. ..

I'm genuinely surprised that Reince Priebus has not (yet?) put out a hit on Trump. Literally, not figuratively.

Politics aside, Scalia spent his life doing what he loved and what he believed in.

So did Hitler. Not everyone should follow their beliefs.

Wow, Godwin's Law just like that. Scalia wasn't Hitler just as Bernie Sanders isn't Stalin. Get a grip.

lol!

has any woman in the US, ever been convicted of slander or libel for a false rape accusation? i don't think so.

Actually yes. But it's very rare:

Actually my favorite Larry Bird highlight his reaction starting at 1:42:30 of this video. Nerves. Of. Steel.

If you did the same thing from an hour out of the Bay Area you would find more reasonable prices although definitely not 75/sq ft

I don't think you get it. The large majority of public schools in CA are garbage. We were already sending our kids to private, so if we do that in GA, no biggie. An expense we are prepared for. A house with good schools in CA will fetch $600-800k usually. You can get east Cobb schools and a decent home for $250k.

We can go back and forth, but your money goes a lot further out here and my commute isn't any longer because I was already dealing with traffic in CA.

Trying to compare the two is like comparing apples and oranges. They are nothing alike and one is 2-3x the cost for less amenities.

Congratulations on your move. If what you have isn't working for you, then you have to find something that does and I'm happy for you that you found it.
