Hey, Indiana is the State that voted to have Pence as their Gov. If they elect a religious born again nut case as Gov. the fact that they want to teach religion in school is not amazing. It is totally wrong and does illustrate ignorance, but they seem to be that way.

Bobby9 comments on Feb 26, 2019:
I disagree. Certainly women in their 20s tend to be more attractive than women in their 50s, but that doesn't mean we are attracted to them. My wife was very pretty in her 20s. She is still very pretty, but she will be the first to admit not as pretty as when she was 25. I personally think it would be a nightmare to "date" a woman in her 20s because we would have very little in common.

I just finished drinking the whole pot! I am feeling good!
Bobby9 comments on Feb 26, 2019:
I love coffee. I drink two large mugs of coffee rather quickly as soon as I get up. However I don't find coffee a stimulant at all. I can drink coffee all day and most of the night and fall asleep with no difficulty. I just like the smell and taste.

I share the exact same attitude. The smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning should be a religious sacrament. However that wonderful aroma does not make me want to converse with anyone in the next few minutes.

Religion fills a social void, how do you get social belonging? Outside of this site of course
Bobby9 comments on Feb 24, 2019:
What "social void" are you referring to and how does religion fill that void? I really think your initial statement is false. I NEVER followed a religion. My childhood social life was great and later my teen years were full of great social contacts. As an adult I continued to have and still have a full social life. This is all without any religion and, at best, 5 church visits (for friends) since I was 5 or 6 years old.

"I never wished death on nobody" is a double negative. Since you never wished death on nobody, that means you did wish death on somebody.

Education in ameriKKKa and the Illusion of a Fair Chance.
Bobby9 comments on Feb 23, 2019:
The statement is a false premise. Take New York City for example (actually any local will do). Real Estate taxes fund the ENTIRE school budget. Collected funds are not earmarked to go back to the neighborhood from where they were collected. Of course that does not mean that a School Board cannot apply funding in a prejudicial manner, but if they did the method of collection would not be a factor.

I was positive Trump had no chance of being elected. So much for my foresight. However his victory illustrates that democrats need to focus of much more on better candidates.

Yes, coffee can be very stimulating.
Bobby9 comments on Feb 18, 2019:
Alas, while I love the taste of coffee, and drink at least three big mugs of coffee daily, it has no physical affect on me. When I was in college I tried drinking lots of coffee and taking No Doz to stay awake and cram for an exam. I was asleep about an hour and a half after drinking a full pot, and taking several No Doz tablets. I can and do drink coffee late a night and easily fall asleep. Conversely, if my wife has a cup after about 3 P.M. she has trouble sleeping.

Some REAL National Emergencies:
Bobby9 comments on Feb 16, 2019:
@Infoguy211 By definition a "National Emergency" is nation wide, and needs to be urgently fixed. Let's look at your post: 1. 20% of the population can't afford the prescriptions given them. First, all prescriptions are not to remedy life threatening, or even serious conditions. Second the problem is economic in nature. Why can't 20% afford prescribed medicine? 2. 40% can't cover a $400 expense. I don't but that statistic, where is the proof? Additionally this is also an economic issue. 3. We may or may not have 11 years to fix climate change. While climate change is real, 11 years is not a universally agreed upon number, or even close to it. 4. 75% of prisoners in local jails haven't been convicted. This infers they are there because they could not make bail. That is not a National problem. 5. Over 4 years and Flint water situation not fixed. That is without doubt a severe local [roblem but obviously not a National problem. Try harder next time.

@Secular_Squirrel There are moral absolutes, but very few. In most cases when a person uses the word "moral" that person is actually referring to Social Acceptability. One example of a moral absolute is: if one rapes and then kills another to avoid identification, the rape and the murder are obviously immoral. Conversely having mutually desired sex in or out outside of marriage is a Social Acceptability issue.
