Empathy isn't a mortal sin. If there's good reason for her dad to be detained I'm not going to be too broken up about it. You refuse to understand why a child is distraught over her father being detained, because you don't know whether or not there was a good reason? What kind of logic leads to tha...

Yeah, it would. Private education is expensive, and very few people can afford it. The vast majority of people were not educated, or even literate, before public education became commonplace. No, that isn't my argument. My argument is that your analogies are stupid, and you don't understand how gov...

Holy shit, no , a state's economy is not analogous to a meal except on the most basic "each has different components to it" level. A level of analysis which is entirely useless for everything except saying "a state's economy has different components to it". When you make a dish ...

Properly balancing the flavour profile of a meal is not, in any way, analogous or equivalent to balancing a state's economy. Properly balancing ingredients in a dish is super analogous to properly balancing goods in an economy. Putting too much or too little salt in a dish is detrimental just like ...

I kinda want LA to somehow, miraculously, beat out San Jose in the playoff race. If LA gets six more points than San Jose does in this final stretch, it would happen. Me, too. Unfortunately, Quick's injury got the best of the team, and Bishop's not really helping in the LA playoff race. However, as...

If Anaheim gets a point tonight, they clinch a playoff spot. If the Oilers win tonight, they (and the Ducks, if they don't get a point) clinch a playoff spot. If the Flames win tomorrow, they (and the Oilers and the Ducks, regardless of tonight) clinch a playoff spot. This is all good news. I cheer...

Stop with the hackneyed examples, you're crap at them. Adding too much cilantro to your meal is not an example of diminishing returns, it's an example of ruining a perfectly good dish because you don't know how to cook. What about adding more cowbell to a song ? Society is not a balanced diet, gove...

If you have the money to make a case that a SCUD and the associated TEL are bearable arms you're free to try and get SCOTUS to hear you out. I'll kick in ten bucks. Bearable?

Rewarding the kind of tantrum-throwing shitfits that the Republicans threw for a whole year is not a positive thing. Trump should've nominated Garland.

Not stacking his cabinet with Goldman Sachs executives and oil tycoons is a relatively simple thing to do. Yeah it is pretty simple. Doesn't change the fact that no politician follows through on 100% of their promises. Afaik Trump is fairly average so far in terms of trying to do things he campaign...
