    Can you be spiritual without being religious?

    Seems like an obvious claim to me. The same side that tends to support the pro-life position also tends to be against the programs that help to break the cycle of poverty. Welfare, mat leave, healthcare, pharmacare, daycare, education grants, etc.

    If a parent forces their teen to give birth to an unwanted child would they now be legally responsible for supporting it, raising it and giving it a chance? In my experience those who claim to be pro-life are really just pro-birth; they have no interest in guaranteeing any sort of quality to that life.
  4. Teens in Ottawa can skirt local drinking laws that restrict alcohol sales to those 19 an older by crossing into Gatineau to legally buy some booze a year earlier. Similarly, those in Chicago can leave the county to legally purchase arms with fewer restrictions. The restrictions in Chicago are essentially inconsequential when guns are easily purchased right next door.
  5. Do US conservatives vomit in their mouths a little when guys like Nugent and Santorum attack Parkland survivors?  So sad, so sick, so stupid...

  6. Chicago is surrounded by counties with very lax gun laws.

    I'm drinking a Citradelic by Big Rock right now and, as someone who only tolerates most IPA's, it's quite good. It's a single hop IPA with a pleasant citrus flavour from the Citra hops, 6% alcohol and fairly bitter 67 on the IBU scale. It's smooth, refreshing and about as bitter as I go. I took part in an Ale-Vent calendar this past December where six people each buy six cans/bottles of four different microbrews. We then made six identical 24 packs containing 24 different varieties. The only rule was the beer could not be a mainstream, mass produced variety. We each sampled the same beer each day leading up to Christmas eve and rated them online. It was great, though now I have to find an excuse to do it in April.

    What Are You Listening To?

    I really like Cornell's performance of this Prince/Sinead song:

    The term good music is so subjective, but they are certainly a breath of fresh air. I love that Zeppelin sound!

    Doug Ford - leader of Ontario PCs

    It feels like a repeat of the last Ontario election. An old government in desperate need of replacement and the main contender is trying its best to make change unpalatable.
  11. "But evolution is only a theory!" Which is true. I mean, it is a theory, it's good that they say that. I think, it gives you hope, doesn't it? That... that maybe they feel the same way about the theory of gravity, and they might just float the fuck away.  - Tim Minchin

  12. As you watch the horror unfold in Aleppo, remember that the United States chose a leader who thinks Putin and Assad are the heroes there.  -  Retweeted David Simon (@AoDespair)

      Correct. Writing "nothing" is more your forte.

      By that i mean, you are unable to not respond.  You have an obsessive need to get in the last word.  We could be at this for hours, except now that I realize this, I'll give you the last word on this thread of nothing.  Make it count!

      Allepo isn't our fault.

      That would be the infamous Arab Spring that set that fire.

    A black Santa Claus at the mall.

    I guess it's fair considering Jesus, our second favourite seasonal myth, is typically depicted as a white man.
  14. Nah, friends who are disgusting enough to support or tolerate that kind of blatant racism, misogyny and hate simply fade into the background and get relegated to the email and Facebook only variety. Kind of like the college friends that never quite grew out of the party phase. We avoid them and occasionally make fake promises to one day make plans to get together some time when we're not so damn busy.
  15. Discovering a friend is willing to tolerate blatant racism, misogyny or the acts of a sexual predator seems like reasonable grounds to distance one's self from them. The fact that Trump's words and actions didn't cause the vast majority of Americans to morally disqualify him as an option, shows that the country has a malignant tumor in need of removal. For many this level of vile hate cannot be tolerated, hence the protests.
