Politics board / Re: how much have you contributed to PP ?

Eugenics was "popular" at the time with elites who wanted inferiors (blacks, Catholics, etc.) to stop procreating. Sanger was part of that crowd. She may have been a kinder, gentler bigot than some of her fellow travelers, but she was a bigot nonetheless.

You are correct and I said as much (although you could have added Jews and criminals as well).

But the original premise is that she was killing black babies. Sanger was a proponent of birth control and while she thought abortions should be legal and safe, was not a proponent of abortion over birth control.

For rara to infer that since she favored birth control for who she considered lowly human beings (not just blacks) to mean that she was killing black babies is just ill-informed at best. But as I said, he chose her for a "gotcha" moment. And his gotcha moment had as much truth as the highly edited videos on PP and ACORN.
That's my point - the kids that are motivated and have caring parents don't usually have the option to go to better schools.  It is the opinion of many liberals that they have to stay stuck in the sh!tty schools with the kids who aren't motivated.

So how do you fix that with vouchers?  Parents of all kids in sh!tty schools who hear about vouchers are going to want to send their kids to better schools, thinking that schools can fix the problems they created.  A fully open voucher system would simply make better schools overcrowded, and worse schools obsolete.

How do you decide what gets to be a gun free zone and what can't? A city? A township? A park? Private business?

i don't decide anything-i leave that to the smart people with all the money-remember, the golden rule?  besides, most of that is already decided.  they may change over time-again, the golden rule.  i may not agree with all of them, but, hey, what's a guy supposed to do.  remember-signs signs, everywhere are this don't do that, can't you read the sign?  we are a nation of laws, except some are more equal than others-heyynaa??
Who, hey?

They are like him, they are not climate scientist.  They are scientist and, even economists, in unrelated fields.

And let me guess ... the 3% who see things differently are highly esteemed scientists, each a leader in the field?

Are you saying that the big trading firms are intentionally manipulating the market in order to make money for themselves and their wealthy clients while totally screwing over the regular investor?

Yes!  This type of trading is a problem.

And, I can tell you right now, it is NEVER going away.  Because whatever reasonable argument that make, they will bury Washington in money and promises of cushy consulting jobs to leave the system as is.

The only way to fix it is to let other sharks compete with the current sharks and hopefully arbitrage away all the profits.

and there are those who say the tooth fairy, santa claus and the easter bunny don't exist-heyna?

i won't go so far as saying all guns should be trigger locked or unloaded EVERYWHERE, just in the areas where the rules say so or they shouldn't be carried at all-i.e. gun-free zones.  we are a country of laws.  most pro gun people follow the laws and will not hesitate to call someone out on them if they are straying-they do eat their own

How do you decide what gets to be a gun free zone and what can't? A city? A township? A park? Private business?

I didn't realize it was possible for me to like him less, but profiteering on pseudoscientific scam remedies and homeopathy managed to bump him up a notch.
