“No really, I mean it. You're really really funny! Except of course if you're serious. Because let me tell you a small secret: big corporations don't give a damn about the Affordable Care Act, because they already subsidize their employees for health insurance. But what they do care about tremendously is borrowing costs (which would have gone through the roof if the US had defaulted), the stability of asset prices and that of the dollar. Any congressman who messes with that will have to pay the consequences... Get out of your hole once in a while, it's a big world out there.”

“Gee then you ought to tell that to Congress all cause the get a 72% subsidy. Remember the ACA is for all not just the few. Isn't that was told to us. BTW while your at it do you know howmany have signed up so far? Do you also who built the made the system & at what cost?”

“I think North Carolina republicans are just genuinely worried for women who are trying to have an abortion while riding a motorcycle, which is a big issue in that state. This is the reason why they attached one bill to the other. Make sense, no? You don't really think they wanted to deceive their colleagues or the public, right?”

“Please stop spreading stereotypes. The North, the South, this group, that group, they're all made of people who, by definition, are individually unique. This issue has nothing to do with the location of its occurrence. It's like saying that the whole state of Pennsylvania is responsible for Sandusky's predatory behavior.

“I'll believe the benefits of a military intervention when I see them. As much as I dislike the idea of religion embedded in a political system Morsi had been elected democratically and had not fulfilled his term. Let's not forget that 18 months ago the Egyptian people were in the streets to try to speed up the democratic process which the army had halted. Yet another example of abuse of power by the man with the gun.”

“I applaud the Egyptians for not sitting still while a tyrannical_wannabe entrenches his power in their new democracy. The fact that the man refused to resign with a such a show of opposition against him proves he would have been nothing but bad news.”

Commented Jul 1, 2013 at 09:00:09 in Politics

“What is fascinating to me is how politicians often embed measures related to sensitive issues inside much broader pieces of legislation or, in this case, a budget. This way they manage, under a false pretense, to promote their own agenda, while not having to directly face the responsibility, and of course the controversy, that would be attached to it. This one is about abortion but who knows which one of people's rights will be on the chopping block next.”

“Like you I am also pro-choice, and like you I also wonder when the cutoff for abortions should be. I don't have an answer to that question and I don't know if anyone does. But one question comes to me here: are fetuses really experiencing pleasure because they "put their hands between their legs"? Is there really any scientific evidence of that beyond what an anti abortion politician is telling us? Show me proof. You can't trust these people, they lie to advance their goals, whatever they may be.”

“I completely agree with you.  This guys statement shouldn't be taken as pure fact.  I just wanted to bring up that he has a point and we should look into it more with an open-mind.  Not to just accept this at face value.  But you are one of a kind!  Haha, don't see too many people who are open to further discussion and debate on this issue.  Most people just put up their walls and defend their view to the death no matter how flawed it might be.”

“And frankly Mr. Linkins didn't achieve much more by attacking David Brooks in this way, whether he's right or wrong. Do you have anything insightful to say? Because otherwise thanks for nothing. And when David Brooks says that other dangers include rise of distrust, the fraying of social fabric and the rise of individualistic people he's far from being an idiot. Just watch your TV and see all these good thinking politicians taking our institutions to the trash and just fending for their own self. And yes, people are starting to lose their trust in the system, and possibly in democracy as well. And that is a real danger.”

“Stereotypes are something we should all try to avoid like the plague. From them come all sorts of evils such as intolerance, misunderstandings or xenophobia. Wherever we go we meet people that we dislike, that we love, that we respect, that we want to befriend, and this whatever their nationality, their race, their language or their religion may be. If we believe stereotypes we shut ourselves down and refuse to give others the chance they deserve to be seen the way they actually are. Wherever we go we may also have a poor experience; that shouldn't prompt us to judge everyone in a town or a country in a negative light. It might not always be easy to do, but we should try to remember that diversity is what makes humans so unique.”

“In a lot of Muslim countries but especially in UAE and Saudi Arabia women have little to no rights. They get no respect of any kind and the law provides them with little to no protection, especially in cases of sexual abuse. Now we could see that as being the result of the implementation of Islam or we could look at it from a different angle: that in those countries Islam is being interpreted and implemented by authoritarian, repressive and abusive men who want to keep their absolute dominance over half of the population of their country, just like they have for hundreds of years. Yes, Islam, just like any other religion, can be interpreted in a very restrictive way, but it doesn't have to be like that and is not always either. What is interesting here though, is that for all our outrage about how badly restricted women's rights are in those countries, its our dollars that keep those repressive regimes in place.”

“Of course there are going to be ties between large international clothing companies and disasters such as this one. How do you think these corporations manage to make the kind of profit margins they're pulling off? First, they would need to lower their greed level by cutting off all relationships with contractors that do not respect certain safety and working conditions standards. But that would be too much to ask, wouldn't it? Furthermore, if corporations really were people then may be they would have this kind of compassion and consciousness, but this is just another proof that Citizens United is just a travesty of our constitution's interpretation.”
