Why shouldnt North Dakota have a nuclear weapons programme?
The US has nuclear weapons. We got silos and shit all over Montana/ND and SD. Who are we to say that North Dakota is not entitled to secede and have their own nuclear arsenal?

Digital forums and free speech
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40577858

i think we all understand the implications of this: twitter is a digital forum open to the public, but it's also privately operated and it has set rules. the decision on this case is going to have sweeping effects on the internet and internal law alike

Why are American motor racing events based on going around and around and around an oval circuit with no difficult turns or chicanes or anything? So boring.

Why shouldn't North Korea have a nuclear weapons programme?
The US has nuclear weapons. The UK does. France does. China does. Russia does. Israel probably does. India and Pakistan might also.

Who are we to say that North Korea is not similarly entitled?

Unit A attacks an enemy unit. At the same time units B and C support HOLD unit A.
What is the defensive strength of unit A? Is it 2 beceuse it is supported by 2, or is the support wasted because unit A is attacking rather than holding?

Hillary Clinton found guilty on 237 charges
Treason, Money Laundering through her foundation, illegally checking her facebook, illegally deleting an email from a south african prince who left her millions in his will, Regecide, criminal neglect, intent to have intent, causing rising sea levels, orchestrating the murder of rival DNC members, 9/11, and a whole host of other charges ranging from multi-accounting to impersonating Jesus. Lock her up. So glad this criminal investigation paid off.

Hobby Lobby's Christian Values

http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/06/us/hobby-lobby-bible-museum/index.html

The fact that most looting of artifacts is done by ISIS terrorists to raise money for its war and the killing and enslaving of Mid East Christians is overlooked by a Christian faith company. Knowing in advance that they were breaking the law to obtained artifacts of questionable origin shows how deep seated their Christian beliefs are.

At least they got hit by a significant fine unless Trump overturns it.

This is fundamentally the problem with religious fundamentalism in a democracy. Democracy is a commitment to go with what society decides, but fundamentalists always will put their "word of God" ahead of democratic decisions which means fundamentalists are always a threat to democracy since they've got zero commitment to the process

also, we are not a pure democracy. we are a republic with a constitution. there are things that the people are not allowed to vote on, we can't hold a referendum to strip a citizen of their rights no matter how many times they talk in a movie theatre or other atrocities

A big point of analysis left out there is that sharia is not universally consistent across countries.

Though countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the UAE have been severely impaired by religious fundamentalism in their governments.

Being a minority voice is still brave. Even if the minority voice is from the right wing.

It's more frightening still to bully a child into giving up a subject altogether because their opinions and views are 'too strong', and quite blatantly too 'wrong'.

If you wonder why young people often seem so weak, perhaps it is because in school they were never allowed to think strong or to stand strong for their own beliefs — only for the beliefs of their so-called teachers.

I urge young people to stand strong for what you believe. And I implore parents, to stand strong for your children. Surely they deserve the opportunity to learn how to think, before a teacher tries to tell them what to think as well.

@Capt Brad - You've never gone to school in a right wing Republican state where the teachers are pushing a Christian conservative agenda in the public schools.

No teaching of evolution or until Intelligent Design came along anything about how we got here. As a Jew taking the Bible as Literature class in the English department, the class had to teach it as literature instead of the original way as religious instruction. All the history classes had nothing above a primary school level that showed anything wrong with the White English way of life.

I went to school in the 60s and 70s however it hasn't changed much in Arizona. Money isn't spent to improve education that in a rich school district was academically behind a poor black one in Chicago, Illinois.

The University of Arizona had to run high school level courses to get students up to college level from within the state. That's how low the high school graduation requirements were and still are.

CNN found the Reddit user who created the WWE wrestling meme
http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/04/politics/kfile-reddit-user-trump-tweet/index.html
This is just sad. A news organization so triggered by a meme that they would go after the poor guy and threaten to release identity to get an apology and is still threatening to release his identity. You can argue if it was appropriate that Trump tweeted this but this is not ok. This is freedom of speech and he might get severely punished for it. Apparently CNN never understood that "1984" is fiction.
