I'm semi-retired (work part time from home) and a caregiver to my disabled wife. I'm an atheist/rationalist animal lover, politically progressive (favor Scandinavian-style socialism), and an avid reader. I'm also a general oddball: a mildly autistic (Asperger's) introvert who cares nothing about sports or pop culture and thinks fat women are beautiful.

It would also enact meaningful disincentives for polluters.

dan325 comments on May 10, 2019:
I disagree that all religions were born out of an intent to lead people to the "right" path - in fact, I believe that was rarely, if ever, the case. Religions have developed for many reasons: fear of the unknown (most humans are afraid of anything they can't understand); fear of uncertainty (the need to believe there's an explanation for everything that happens, especially the bad stuff); the need to believe our lives have objective meaning; the need to believe that it's not all over when we die; etc. Religions have also been created and/or used primarily as a means to control and influence their adherents: sometimes as outright systems for fleecing the faithful, sometimes for the self-aggrandizement of charismatic leaders who treat their disciples as financial, personal and/or sexual slaves, or sometimes just as means to political ends.

dan325 comments on May 9, 2019:
The "they" you're talking about are the Republicans and the centrist Democrats, and you're right. The only reason the debt keeps increasing is that "they" don't want to raise taxes to pay for anything that helps ordinary people. If you do away with the forever wars, decrease our bloated military spending, cease our incessant meddling in the business of other countries, and eliminate the endless tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy, there will be more than enough money to pay for social programs without raising taxes. Even if taxes were raised in order to pay for universal medical protection, the tax burden for ordinary people would be more than offset by their lower medical costs. "They" are a sorry collection of greedy, hypocritical liars.

dan325 comments on May 5, 2019:
This is bound to piss some people off, but here goes: The second amendment is an anachronism and as such should be repealed or at least heavily amended. Now I'll call myself a goddamned lily-livered pinko snowflake liberal to save some potential readers the trouble. But let's take a look at it. It reads, word for poorly phrased word, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Conservatives hate the first two phrases tying the amendment to a militia, but that was the primary basis for the amendment as advanced by the framers. The framers had no desire to maintain a standing national army once the Revolutionary War was over. Instead they relied on state and local citizen militias to maintain order whenever local policing authorities weren't capable of doing so. (Think of fighting with Indians or crushing slave rebellions.) State and local residents were expected to form their own militias and train periodically, although the discipline and scheduled training were loose to nonexistent. Most significantly, the residents were generally expected to provide their own "arms," which mostly consisted of muskets, "hangers" (shortish swords/sabers often used for hunting), and the occasional pike left over from the war. (The pikes were long spears used by foot soldiers to fight mounted cavalrymen armed with long sabers. Which raises another interesting question: why don't our second amendment rights include the right to bear swords and pikes?) Thus, the "Arms" cited in the amendment were essentially muskets and bladed weapons, which (white, male) citizens were expected to maintain for militia duty. That was the main point of the amendment. Of course this was a frontier society, and those "Arms" were going to be maintained in most quarters anyway (mostly for hunting), but the framers obviously felt no compulsion to include hunting (or self-defense, for that matter) as justification for the amendment. Unless you count the bands of feral clowns shooting up our rural woodlands as actual militias (which they're not), the only true descendants of our original militias are the state national guards. The national guards are a far cry from the militias contemplated by the founders, and they're neither allowed nor expected to supply their own weapons. So how is the second amendment relevant to today's society? Answer: It's not. Note that I'm not advocating confiscating everyone's guns (although I'm in favor of confiscating some of them) or taking away a reasonable right to own certain firearms (except for problematic folks who constitute a danger to themselves or others). Such a proposition would be unenforceable in the U.S. and ...

Your legal analysis is logical and theoretically feasible, and I would love to see it play out.

These people have no problems with twisting the law to fit their personal viewpoints - look at the *Citizens United* case. Next, in order to get most (or even a few) of the ultraconservative judges impeached, you'd need a majority in the House and a super-majority in the Senate who were willing to take it that far. Sadly, I'd be astounded to see that happen.

I agree that selling out to AIPAC would be a deal-breaker in choosing a Democratic candidate. The Green Party has admirable aspirations but no chance of fielding a winning candidate at this point. The only way to wrest control from the Republicans is to vote Democratic, so for me that is the only choice.
