Ian Murray does a pretty good job of dissecting the moral arguments against abortion.
TNN’s Slamball is a truly enjoyable show.
Slamball is 3 on 3 basketball with trampolines inside of the 3 point lines. This show is clearly designed for the short attention spans of today’s ADD audiences. Basketball, already a fast paced sport, becomes more highlight driven with defensive tackles and constant attempts at dunks. If only the show had talented basketball , like the XFL, the rule changes may bring an inventive prouduct. The only missing element is clearly talent.
A simple fact people seem to have forgot.
There is no Social Security Surplus!
Hey Libertarian Party! The Goal is to gain members not lose members
The Libertarian Party has issued a press release against the U.S. going to war with Iraq. War with Iraq is one policy issue where people of all political persuasions can be divided and dissagree on a rational basis. The Libertarian Party does not come out ahead on this issue. Sure they may gain some mebers who want to join that are solely against Iraq. But they may also lose longtime rational members who think that is the wrong position to take. The Libertarian Party should stick to criticising airport security and the joke that is/will be the Office of Homeland Security.
Whoa, Nelly (I know. It’s corny.)
First, Nelly talks about doing a sitcom. Then they came out with a Nelly video game. Plus Nelly’s got some multimedia advice coming out with gameboy. And Nelly’s coming out with a movie. It’s sad too. I don’t think Nelly has any talent left after his first album.
Traditions should stay despite our enlightened values
Religion in any form should not be imposed on anyone. The addition of religion into any new governmental situations is a bad idea. Religion and government should be separate.
While governments should avoid adding the addition of religion symbols into their infrastructure, traditional symbolic involvement should not be forced out of government due to our enlightened standards. The pledge of allegiance did not need the words under god removed, nor do the American coins need “In God We Trust” removed. At the same time, I find it unnecessary that the London police are giving options of uniforms without the royal badge containing the royal crown. The royal crown is topped with a cross that some feel is “too Christian.” This is a clear instance where the government should be able to stick with tradition even if some incidental religion is imbued.
Does Dominos Want To Go Out of Business? OR Are They Just Stupid
Dominos will now be charging a dollar for delivery. This seems like a move that would alienate a lot of poor college students who will either buy from some other pizza chain or give the delivery person a dollar less in tip. Papa John’s seeems like a much better choice. C’mon their pizza comes with dipping sauce!
