So you're asserting Ted raped Caroline in the movie? I get you're point about her being passed around, but going back to the scenes, I wouldn't call Ted a rapist. Jake might be a POS, but he is the privledged golden boy. Ted is the geeky nerd that I, and probably the majority of people identify with. Ted is by no means a pillar of moral virtues, but I think his character shows respect and concern for women and his friends. Jakes do exist in society, I don't deny that. I'm just saying most of us are Teds, worried about our female friends being hurt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmf_sT_IcMc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCs6quvxBLE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLkNs11kgew
Black Woman Gets Suspended for Calling Out Police Implicit Bias

They are legally married, and should be afforded the rights and misery any married couple endures! :) BTW here is the website, where it is very clear it is a religious focused organization https://www.friendshipvillagestl.com/. I would suspect these women applied there not b/c of their need or desire to live there, but to force a court case. Glad the court upheld the legal aspect accordingly, just a shame that the law doesn't address this moral argument.

I think I found this as a dating site, but to me it's more of a atheist/agnostic community. I initially signed up hoping to find women close by that might be a match date-wise, but now have given up on that and actually more pleased with the conversations I have found. There are some bone heads on here, so I've learned that freedom from religious b.s. doesn't mean you are intelligent or insightful, but overall, there are a LOT of good people on here. I am honored to be here and being challenged in my views. Thanks to all for helping me to be a better person! Although, not sure that was a high bar to start with! LOL :)
Think Socialist Programs Are UnAmerican?
jondspen comments on Aug 27, 2018:
Of course, if the government wasn't so anti-labor and in bed with corporations, people wouldn't need Social Security, Medicare, and could afford to put their kids in a private school where they actually learned stuff. But you're right. My bible thumper dad and step-mom are republicans, believe in small government, and protested when Tennessee was creating their scholarship lottery about 20 yrs ago b/c it was sinful gambling. BTW, he hasn't worked in 20 yrs (was stay at home-schooling dad) and now pulls in SS, she has her masters and works for the state as a prison school teacher, and my half sister went to school on that same lottery scholarship. Kinda hard to get behind small government when every cent coming into your household is the product of big government. I don't mind people standing up for their beliefs...just don't be a hypocrite about it. BTW...out of all mentioned, the local fire department may be the only one not completely mismanaged, bloated, inefficient, in serious decay, or worse, killing us via poison or as unarmed citizens with no repercussions. If you're argument was that moderate socialism in America can be productive and beneficial, you might want to rethink your examples.

jondspen comments on Nov 7, 2018:
You should get off your high horse and get a F-ing clue. You do realize that our government via the CIA has murdered, enslaved, oppressed, and over-thrown democratically elected government...all so you can have cheap gas, both under Republician and Democratic leadership. FDR (a democrat) in WWII incarcerated Japanese, Italian and German citizens, just b/c of their parents or grand-parents birth location. We forcefully occupied and annexed Hawaii, and today the native islanders live in extreme poverty. BTW...ever hear of the Trail of Tears? How about the countless Indian massacres, all in the name of manifest destiny. More recently we had the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Dakota Access pipeline incident...once again shitting on the treaties and promises made. How about Obama and civilian casualties from his enhanced drone program? JFK and the Bay Of Pigs ring a bell? Before you start spouting your moral superiority, you should really take a good hard look at the government you support. None of us are without blood on our hands as Americans, and your last sentence incriminates yourself along with all the others you want to label 'Nazi'. Our government is a lie and we are hypocrites; you support it just like those you seem to feel superior too. Yet because you care or identify with a small subset, people who don't vote like you think they should are pieces of shit while you maintain your's doesn't stink. The sad part is you actually think the democrats actually do anything significantly different behind closed doors.

If I'm right, your behavior will win out, even if you don't see it. If I'm wrong, then you don't leave the argument feeling low or dirty for slinging mud like they do.

I also believe that democracy can be manipulated, hijacked, or outright bought. People are too lazy, ignorant, and indifferent to keep our current (and past) forms of democracy on track...and I feel we are 100 or so years away from essentially crumbling. I believe the government (aka - military industrial banking complex - not the whites) will continue in some form to enslave and murder the world for profit, but the sheeple will continue to support Oceania.

jondspen comments on Apr 14, 2019:
There are people that are pro-life and are not religious. I know that many religious people cite their religion in their argument, but many arguments boil down to a respect for life and not supporting murder - which can stand alone as a reasonable argument. BTW - it's not your body that you are killing, so there's that. Finally - I would like to point out than many comments here stated that pro-lifers don't care about the child once it's born (food, shelter, etc). Maybe yes, maybe no - but if you support murder, then you don't care about that stuff either - so please don't use that hypocritical argument either.

As such, we have the government we (collectively) deserve. So no...can't say anything positive about Trump or any other president in the past 20-30 years. Even when they do attempt to do something good for the people, it is so warped and diluted with party politics that in the end it doesn't really help in most cases.

It was statutory rape, not necessarily forcible rape, as your synopsis implied. You can also see the pic of them posing together as she is pregnant. She became pregnant after meeting him at her 15th birthday party. She says they only had sex once - where she became pregnant. She is now 21, has 3 kids, and is remarried to another guy. Yes, already has 3 kids at age 21. Not condoning her or parents actions - just though I would add a bit of the details you conveniently left out of the summary.

jondspen comments on Dec 8, 2018:
FYI....as a software dev, we would run pre QA tests against fixes with IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and sometimes Safari. Many times, Chrome and Firefox would bring up the site, while all the others did not. Come to find out, the other browsers were working correctly by blocking the page (issues with the header for example), but Chrome/Firefox would not block as they should have and allow page to load. That's off topic from a 500 error, but just throwing that out there - a 'working' site on a browser doesn't mean it SHOULD be working always. Also - Chrome might be bringing up the page from cache. Clear your history/cache/cookies and I would bet it stops working there also.

MEN: What would your reason be for asking a woman what she does for a living, upon meeting her?
jondspen comments on Sep 10, 2018:
I think it is a central part of finding out about the person. I think I saw a study that said over 80% of people are unhappy in their job....so the following shouldn't be taken as "I see you as a sell out", but if I was to ask (1) it tells me if you are happy with what you do for 1/3 of your day and (2) it gives me an idea if you are not, what dreams you have given up on just to fit in and make ends meet. You typically spend 1/3 of your day at your job, 1/3 of your day sleeping, and 1/3 of your day dealing with life and trying to squeeze in some enjoyment. I don't necessarily judge a person if they are working at a job they hate, I've done that myself like most people, esp single parents, but it also tells me the what and why you are doing it. So yea...I think your job is a big part of who you are b/c it is so much a part of your life.
Why to call yourself "Atheist" instead of "Agnostic."
jondspen comments on Sep 10, 2018:
A simple definition of the two boils down to what do you believe and what do you know. Not sure the accuracy of the definition, but my take is atheist means I don't believe in gods, agnostic means that I don't know if there are gods (and perhaps due to my composition could never know). In reality, I have found most agnostics are afraid to take a stand and say they don't believe in gods. They are a bit wishy-washy with the whole "Well, I just don't know, so I can't make a decision." Not saying all are like this, just the limited one's I have encountered and spoken too. I am agnostic when it comes to unicorns and leprechaun , in that yes, I don't know of any that exist, nor do I know if I will ever be able to know if they exist. Yet I have the courage to take that knowledge and form some assumptions that since I don't know of any, I infer (believe) they do not exist. Could I be wrong...absolutely. I am not so arrogant to think I have all the answers, but I am also no a coward to kowtow to public opinion and delusions by trying to stay on the fence with an "I don't know therefor I can't believe either way" excuse. Honestly, I don't think it's typically enough of a difference of perspective to affect public policy, laws, and societal constructs in the majority of instances. Given that, I don't put too much effort into dissecting the nuances of the two.
Dating woes
jondspen comments on Nov 19, 2018:
Hmmm...that's odd. Usually it's the women who feel they have to fix the man they are dating (dress better, get better friends, get a better job, be more ambitious, stop flirting, clean house/put down tolite seat for her b/c she can't seem to see the benefits of looking before you put your ass on something, etc etc etc). Cursing - well, depends. If every other word out of your mouth is "FUCK", then yea, I wouldn't want to intro you to my colleague at work, young children, or grandparents. I was 6 years Marine Corps, so I can cuss like a sailor, but I also have class and tact, and know when it's appropriate. Drinking - again, maybe you are just social, maybe you are a lush. How much you drink a night when you drink, and how often is that a week? Politics - can't argue there, given that I don't think you're a member of the American Nazi party. But if you were, I wouldn't try to change you, I would just kick you to the curb. Tone down your personality - are you just outgoing - or do you come across as a no class, loud mouth, ignant, hood rat? That's not racist b/c of your skin color....I know lots of white trash hood rat girls. You be you, but on the other side of that coin, if you keep going out with guys and get the same input over and over....at some point you have to realize the only constant in the equation is you. I don't know you....so honestly I can't say if it's just bad luck with the guys, if you keep attracting the same type guy which are just oil to your water, or if you need to be honest with yourself and maybe make some personality tweaks. EDIT - you describe yourself as an alpha female, and it occurred to me that either one, you are consistently attracted to Alpha male types, and there is this dominance game being played....or being an alpha, ANY type of compromise is seen by you as controlling. I'm just spit balling ideas here...no basis in facts, just thoughts on reasonable probabilities from what I have experienced. Strong personalities typically are not attracted to betas, unless it's to establish dominance in the relationship - not respect, and strong personalities have trouble bending and compromising.

While I don't agree with what Alex Jones says on InfoWars, this kind of stuff is no surprise anymore.

That way they get what they want, but can claim ignorance, innocence, and outrage.

Being up north, I would suspect your odds are better at the troop leader being more moderate approaching this aspect of the org. No guarantees, but my advise is to just talk to the troop leader about it and get a feel on how much this will be a focus; may only be an occasional prayer. Given the diversity of Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, etc. in America, I myself would play safe with a moment of silence if I was leading the troop. Honestly, I'm sure he's more excited about doing the outdoor stuff with friends from school.

Here's the problem today.... I ask you out...you accuse me of sexual harassment. I don't ask you out...I'm not an alpha male and don't deserve you b/c you're pussy is that special and should be chased after. I open the door...I insult you b/c you are an independent and strong woman. I don't open the door...I'm an insensitive ass that doesn't appreciate know how to treat a woman. I pay for the meal...I am a sexist b/c I feel you need a man to support you. I don't pay for the meal...I am cheap and you question if I can properly provide for you. Western women are so fucking spoiled and delusional, with no idea of what they want, or are too afraid to admit to themselves what they want, they can't realize what a shit experience it is to date them. Guys are expected to rut and fight over an over-weight woman with no fashion sense, just to show how special we think you are b/c your narcissistic dating bio says so. Yet when we do, we never get any compliments or thanks for it. Attitudes toward dating are just like a wedding day...it's HER day...and you better do anything and everything for her with no expectations of having any of your needs met (conversation, interest, attraction, etc).

jondspen comments on Nov 9, 2018:
Perhaps some are one or the other, perhaps some are a little of both. I think the biggest problem is that children think once they reach 18 or 21, they have it all figured out and won't ever change or grow as a person. Hell, even the 30, 40, and 50 something people I talk to take this mentality. I mean at 43, most people are only half way thorough their lives, and look at all the changes in attitudes and ideas since birth!! But they seem to think that the next 43 years they will remain intellectually stagnant; and yes, I realize unfortunately the close minded individuals do...even in the face of obvious change.

jondspen comments on Feb 7, 2019:
Capitalism isn't the problem. The problem stems from corrupt, over-reaching, and ineffective government which has grossly interfered with the system. ( 1 ) If government would enforce immigration and labor laws, many blue collar workers would not have to compete with illegal immigrants that work for half the pay. If government would allow workers to join together for redress of grievances, anti-labor and union laws would not keep workers under the boot of management/corporations (https://www.shmoop.com/history-labor-unions/law.html). And ( 3 ) if government wouldn't think it's job is to nanny state commerce, adults could make their own decisions about the quality of products and services. Some social programs are necessary and good, just as some government intervention into the economy is good. The problem today is we have far too much intervention where we don't need it, and not enough where we do - mainly to the benefit of corporations over the people.
Does anyone else feel this way?

"I can't help but wonder what this world would be like if people had more faith in themselves and their own abilities than they do in" - the GOVERNMENT! But to your question - yes, I do think people are more comfortable to be led. It excuses having to think, and any responsibility for the outcome of a decision.

No, I just missed news being required to equally present both side to a debate. That hijacking of the "4th branch of government" was done by the Clinton admin under the complete cooperation of the dem and rep parties. In other words, they both colluded to create a system free to misinform and lie to the public b/c it furthered their political ambitions. And people think voting makes a difference...

I use BBC, Aljazeera, and Reuters where I READ the news. I can usually get a good idea about the REAL story by comparing notes from these three sources. Sigh...I remember once upon a time when reporters actually reported the facts, not ran op ed pieces about every story they covered.

You left out one key step, and possibly the most important - evaluate the possible solution(s) to the problem. You should know in IT, esp when you start to add in business needs, project managers, time lines, cost constraints, technology constraints, future plans, that there are typically many solutions that can be taken to address the problem.

jondspen comments on Nov 11, 2018:
Why are they all black? Isn't that a bit racist? And what's the stringy thing attached to it? Is it a lanyard so you don't lose it? LOL I've used 2, 3, and 4. My great aunt had 2, paternal grandmother had 3 and maternal grandmother had 4. We had #4 also, but with the 10ft cord that always twisted into a DNA helix and would reach from one end of the house to the other and provided free games of limbo.
Some humor for a quiet group.
