    Oh knock it off.



    Oh, on this board you don't need to use actual facts. Just slander Republicans as evil racists and that's all you need to do. Haidt...

    Re: Ukraine and Crimea development thread

    Isn't it funny that governments the "West" doesn't like are called "regimes?"

    Re: Crisis at Venezuela

    Maduro is the legitimate President of Venezuela. If he is to stop being in that role than the people need to vote him out in an election. It is not the US, or the UK, or anyone else's business what...

    Re: Women and Christian Worship

    The original post is correct. Modern Christianity does indeed require cherrypicking scripture.
  13. Re: IMF Study - Taxing the Rich is GOOD for the Economy

    Denny is correct. In the US the super rich tend to make their income in Capital Gains, which is a flat 15% regardless of the amount. Steve Jobs was famous for making an income of $1/yr. He certainly...
  14. Re: Will humans on average be much taller in the future or will it remain the same as now?

  16. Re: Will humans on average be much taller in the future or will it remain the same as now?

    Of course it is. Tall people don't even need to have 1% more (or less) kids than short people to change the gene pool over time.

    The problem is that height hasn't even been reduced down to a few...

    I've heard the Crimean War offered up since it involved railroads to some significant degree and rifles started to supplant smoothbores. I think it also saw breech-loading cannon.

    Ukraine didn't want to be with Russia. They've already accepted the principle of secession. The real question is whether they'll be able to accept a division of their country.

    I'm a believer in protectionism even though I know it leads to trade wars. Free trade usually is "free" for only one party and not for the other.
