    The Dept of Health and Human Services looking at building tent cities on US Military bases for unaccompanied Migrant Children

    Regadless of what idiotic things dems have done in the past, comparing what is going on right now to the normal process of dealing with the children of people accused of crimes is not right. We don't take people's kids under false pretenses. We don't ship them to other places. We do not take...

    You do realize that the USA gives citizenship to children born in another country to American parents also?

    Is Legal Pot a Public Health Menace?

    Ha. Rotator cuff issues are very complicated and depend on a lot of factors so I decided against giving any free advice on a message board. Thanks for covering that base for me.

    Christian Leaders To Jeff Sessions: The Bible Does Not Justify Separating Families

    Bank robbing is s felony. Crossing a border is a misdemeanor. Make the comparison appropriate. This is not bank robbery. This is catching someone for public intoxication or trespassing and locking them up for extended time and taking their children across state lines with no way to contact...

    Is Legal Pot a Public Health Menace?

    Gonna have to disagree with your first paragraph. While it is not likely some wonder drug like many advocates act like it is, there is evidence that it is a good adjunctive therapy for some chronic pain. A meta-analysis of all randomised studies in CNCP averaging across all medicinal cannabis...

    Is Legal Pot a Public Health Menace?

    And yet, despite all those bad things it is still much less harmful than alcohol, which is legal. And why is it legal? Not because it is recommended, but because it is clear that prohibition does not work other than as a way to increase violence. Can anyone explain to me if you have two...

    The Dept of Health and Human Services looking at building tent cities on US Military bases for unaccompanied Migrant Children

    Can you give another example of children being taken away and put in prolonged care elsewhere in the country for a misdemeanor crime? Why aren't we putting the owners of the businesses that hire illegal workers in jail and taking their kids away if the purpose of doing so is a deterrent? I...

    Annnnd.... she'd be dead here.

    I asked my neighbor who is a detective and it sounds like their laws on this are complicated and dumb. First, there is state and federal law. Federal seems to apply to the sale, not ownership. Federal appears to require some marking, such as the orange tip, for sale, but it can be removed by...

    Supreme Court upholds Ohio method of removing names from voter rolls

    I do sometimes wonder if all the attempts to make it super easy to vote are counterproductive. People tend to value things that take effort and have value. Cheapen it and it just seems cheap. I am against laws/rules that actually make it difficult for poor people. But, how poor would you...

    Supreme Court upholds Ohio method of removing names from voter rolls

    Am I reading this correctly? Is the Supreme Court trying to say that the only thing they can decide is if the policy breaks federal law? How strange.

    The way forward in our country causing income inequality

    https://hbr.org/2015/04/how-technology-has-affected-wages-for-the-last-200-years I just found this article from Harvard Business Review that speaks to both of these points and has a pretty optimistic outlook. Basically, they are saying that technology increases worker productivity and wages but...

    The way forward in our country causing income inequality

    See, you just read what you want to read instead of what is written. THAT is why I have no desire to discuss things with you. It isn't ever a discussion. All your response ever are is an attempt to one-up me. I could not have made it any more clear that I do enjoy discussing with people that...

    The way forward in our country causing income inequality

    If there are unfilled jobs, that is the demand and incomes should rise (in fairness, I think they are somewhat). And, what is preventing unemployed people from obtaining the training required?
