    Politics Are Water Wars in the Near Future?

    I realized that there are serious shortages of water globally, but until I read the recent article from the NYTimes, I was not aware of the severity of the problem in our neighbor to the South. It also made me aware how much of the Western US may be within a decade or less of suffering from...

    On the campaign trail, Republicans talk of violence

    https://wapo.st/3S4pPOz I'm gifting this article and hope that some of you will read it. The following is a little taste. I've got to leave the house, so I don't have time to comment much right now, but you really need to read the entire article to get an idea of what's going on with far...

    Biden administration announces partial student loan forgiveness

    I've never supported blanket student loan forgiveness, but this seems like a reasonable plan. Some of the details are absent from this article, but it appears as if it will help those who have been paying on their loans for many years, especially those who barely make enough income to afford...

    Biden Commemorates Transgender Day

    https://wapo.st/3IQ5h6I I'm happy to have such a thoughtful compassionate president who realizes that some people are naturally transgender. Plus, he isn't afraid to stand up for people who are minorities, despite some of the cruel, unnecessary rules that some Republican governors are foisting...

    The Morality of Atheism

    I read an article today that I thought might make an interesting discussion. It describes some statistics about the moral values of atheists versus theists. ( well at least until we derail it :glare: :laugh: https://thehumanist.com/commentary/the-morality-of-atheism Does the above...

    The Rise of Christian Nationalism

    I was going to post this in politics, but since some of the posters here seem very interested in identifying religious groups that are dangerous or potentially dangerous, I thought I'd give an example of a movement that has the potential to threaten our democracy in some extreme ways. I do not...

    Mark Meadows is being investigated for possible voter fraud!

    If ever there was a hypocrite, it just may be that his name is Mark Meadows. https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/maddowblog/mark-meadows-faces-new-investigation-voter-registration-rcna20574

    Cancel Culture

    I made a remark in another post about an opinion piece I read concerning cancel culture. I didn't want to put this in the political forum for various reasons, but let's just say that cancel culture is more of a social movement than a political movement. Hopefully, this can be discussed, assuming...

    Modern Day Slavery Found in South Georgia

    https://www.ajc.com/news/this-has-been-happening-for-a-long-time-modern-day-slavery-uncovered-in-ga/SHBHTDDTTBG3BCPSVCB3GQ66BQ/ The criminals were smuggling immigrants into the country to be used as slaves, on South Georgia farms. I've quoted part of the article which is probably behind a pay...

    US workers are tired of being under paid and over worked!

    Hopefully, anyone interested should be able to read the entire article that I'm linking for the next two weeks. https://wapo.st/3BUc4d4 The article, if you don't feel like reading it, discusses strikes as well as workers quitting their jobs, mostly due to feeling under appreciated due to...

    America is more racially/ethnically diverse than it was in the past according to new census results

    The results of the 2020 census were revealed yesterday and much to the surprise of some, non Hispanic White America was about 2 percentage points lower than expected. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/12/us/politics/census-demographic-shifts.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage...

    Republicans in Georgia already moving to take over next election!

    As many, if not most of you know, the Republican led Georgia congress passed some laws earlier this year that appear to be attempts to suppress the vote in areas that are heavily populated by Democrats. But, worse than that, they included in these laws, the right for the party in power to take...

    Sacred Underwear!

    I know we don't often discuss the Mormons here, but I couldn't resist posting from this recent NYT article about women who are rebelling against wearing their sacred underwear. Sacred underwear is just one of the many nutty things that we find in religion, as most of you know...

    Men wearing dresses

    Now, I honestly don't care what anyone wears. In fact, it adds to my amusement to see people wearing all kinds of weird outfits, but this article that I'm going to link did make me wonder if identifying with a specific gender will eventually become a thing of the past. But, first, amuse yourself...

    Texas wins the prize for attempting to suppress the vote

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/29/us/politics/texas-voting-bill.html?action=click&module=In%20Other%20News&pgtype=Homepage So, mistakes made by poll workers can be prosecuted! WTF!

    1st openly transgender bishop elected to lead a synod in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/10/us/megan-rohrer-transgender-bishop.html While I certainly don't agree with the supernatural beliefs of this church group, I am very pleased when any religious group becomes more progressive. We have some atheists who are members of TFT who don't accept the...

    Parts of Georgia plan on giving de-escalation training to their deputies.

    I don't know if this will help as much as is needed, but it's at least a good attempt to change the attitudes and behaviors of some police. https://www.ajc.com/news/caution-empathy-and-compassion-fulton-henry-deputies-to-get-de-escalation-training/DSYNGQSDZVGOXNTTC4W7BOLDPE/ I like the idea...

    Masturbation! Guilt and Religion!

    I have actually done some research on how various religions view sexual masturbation. Surprisingly enough, I found that most all of the more conservative sects of the various world religions take a dim view in regards to masturbation, or what I prefer to call "self pleasuring". Or you could call...
