Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Tucson

Regardless of whether you appeal to a singular or institutional authority, arguing that expertise--not evidence--makes an argument correct is wholly wrong and in fact the very heart of the appeal to...

re: Prometheus (2012, D: Scott, Fassbender, Rapace, Theron, Wilson, Elba)

:thumbsup:

The resulting film might be fantastic, but scrapping the soul of the film after all this time and all of this build up is really disappointing.

This flick will have to be the next...

Re: Missouri Legislature to consider drug testing for welfare recipients

I understand your position, and to an extent I agree--I don't want tax dollars that are earmarked for helping someone survive being used instead to buy recreational drugs. I also don't want them...

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Tucson

Appeals to authority are also logical fallacies.

There are myriad substances & behaviors whose abuse meets the clinical criteria for addiction, alcohol, marijuana, chocolate, coffee, and...

No, but I would be willing to heckle you offstage at the comedy club.

Re: Missouri Legislature to consider drug testing for welfare recipients

I never said you did. And yes, yes you did say that welfare should be eliminated.




I wish you well with your attempt to bring your modest proposal to fruition.

Re: Missouri Legislature to consider drug testing for welfare recipients

Regardless of whether they're good or bad for society, those programs certainly do throw the door wide open for the creep of state power over citizens' private lives. Since we're going to be stuck...

Re: Missouri Legislature to consider drug testing for welfare recipients

Or on the other hand, we could just prevent the government from snooping into our private lives even more than it already is.

Re: Missouri Legislature to consider drug testing for welfare recipients

"Because those private citizens receive money from all of us."

So do our elected officials. If they don't like taking drug tests, they can resign their offices and never run again.

Re: My optometrist would not give me my PD.

I can't believe I've squandered so many years of my life without watching Youtube videos of a middle-aged man who willingly referred to himself as the Star Hustler.

Re: A salute to Rooster Sauce

I felt very cosmopolitan when I started using this in my black bean burgers. Now it goes on everything from fried eggs to oven fries.

A little goes a long way, though. I think I've had the same...

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Tucson

It felt like a memorial service crashed by refugees from a political convention. Odd to say the least; even the applause struck a nerve with me, much less the bizarre cheering.

For his part, Obama...

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Tucson

I don't disagree, but in the real world of politics this is nothing more than navel-gazing. American politics is a nasty business that has actually increased in civility as expanding technology and...

Re: Armond White Emcees NY Critics Awards, Insults Winners

How White has managed to remain in print is completely beyond me. He's the Ward Churchill of film criticism.

As an aside, I liked Aronofsky better when he had his beard.

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Tucson

Out of curiosity, when public faces beg for a return to civility, which era of American politics are they speaking of? My memory only goes back to the mid-80s, but I don't recall that Reagan and...

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Tucson

Tucson is a funny place. The middle-class demographics and political beliefs are pretty much the same as the rest of the state but on top of that you have a large university in the middle of town and...

Re: New HBO Series "Game of Thrones" debuting in 2011

Thanks to sven for those great links.

Peter Dinklage is a fantastic actor, but after seeing that AH interview, I'm going to have a hard time not picturing Billy Mitchell playing Tyrion.

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot (possibly assassinated) In Tucson

From that same link, the AZ legislature is going to pass an emergency law keeping all protesters 300 feet away from funerals.

Works for me.

Just discovered two minutes ago that the grocery where the shooting occurred is the same one that I used to frequent when I lived in Tucson. I still find it hard to believe that such...
