Anyone here smoke cigars?

I have gotten into it slowly over the past couple years.


There should be a law that if you are a politician, you're just not allowed to have any investments in anything.

Conflicts of interest.


I've been trying listen to Congressional hearings lately.

And the reality is...they're pretty boring.


Was the site down for a while this morning?

I tried to check it and my browser said no.


Purely sociological, honest question:

And I am not asking for myself. I look good enough to do alright with the ladies, if I should apply myself to that and in any case I am in a relationship.

Why do young people like socialism so much?

Questions are good but if this is more than a rant, the right question must be asked.

I'm in my early thirties, so i count as young? What about elementary school kids?

And what do you mean by socialism? The usa has tons of socialist policies that no one (or at least not most) seem to have a problem with. Public schools, public libraries, social security, unemployment benefits, the government of most states requiring you to have auto insurance if you want to drive, and others i can't think of right now.

Probably you have none of these things in mind when you say socialism, but are simply aping rhetoric that a pundit is spouting who could care less if your child has a basic education.

The only way a debate like this becomes grounded in reality is by talking about specific problems with specific policies. Otherwise both sides are swiming in a sea of idealisti nonesense.

So I'm scared I hurt a snake...

Let me say I am pleased to see a bipedal show such concern for his reptilian fellows. while I am not an expert on snakes, I believe that, if it was hurt, you would probably be able to tell. Bones crack when broken, and you should realize that creatures are usually built pretty tough - snakes spend their whole lives on the ground, after all.

He wouldn't have been much safer living in your store, so I believe you did the right thing. On the other hand, I would offer...what if the snake was venomous? I do not know where you live and if there are such snakes in the area, but your job probably doesn't pay you enough to get treated for snake venom. Animal control may have been a better option.

Solipsism (/ˈsɒlɪpsɪzəm/ from Latin solus, meaning 'alone', and ipse, meaning 'self') is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist.

I think, therefore I am. But why not just, Think. Think. Think. And not bother to assume that I must be the one thinking. Maybe the thoughts belong to someone else. To assume the thoughts that appear in the head on these shoulders as these hands type are my own is just as good as to assume that the sandwhich that these eyes see in your hand is mine just because these eyes in this head see it.

There's a giveness to thoughts though-they're personal, no one else seems to hear them unless I open my mouth, and I can do it at anytime that I'm not asleep. How can the thoughts that I can hear that you cannot hear be yours and not mine? But might as well ask why the voice the deaf man cannot hear when he uses his mouth not be his and not mine when I hear it while it's just we two in the room.

List of "HOW DARE YOU" LIES I was once made to believe:

On the list though:

the Tooth Fairy
the Easter Bunny
Santa Claus

Agreed, no need for these fictions, they don't do anything positive for your kid and can only hurt.

God

In my opinion, the correct position on God is agnosticism, and I tend to give people who feel that have real spiritual experiences with the divine the benefit of the doubt, even if I can doubt whether or not they have really experienced it...let people have god if they want.

law is fair

Clearly it isn't but it's also not supposed to be, from what little I've studied of it. the law is just the law, some laws are fair, others aren't. It depends on the context. And law and ethics are not the same thing either.

America is the greatest/freest country in the world

It is among the freest and greatest, along with countries in the EU and Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Japan. But that's only virtue of so many other nations being so terrible.

Work hard and be rewarded

Well...again, depends on the context, but yes, lots of people work very hard and do not get a proportionate reward for it.

Circumcision without consent at birth is good(more a theft AND a lie)

Agree with this so hard

"You're special"

You are!

I think a lot of people think it's all just hype. But we are really at a turning point and it's not even necessarily linked to Trump, Democrats, or Republicans.

All our lives and this country are going to change a lot in the next twenty years. It's shocking how Covid happening is not enough to wake people up to that.

Trump will not lose but he will not continue to be our POTUS. Let me explain.

Before the final tally of all the votes in all the states Trump will resign still thinking in his mind he won. This is how much he hates to lose so he will quit before that happens. Within 72 hours Pence will be sworn in as the interim President and his first act as POTUS will be to give Trump a full and complete pardon. This will protect him from any Federal charges only. The rest of his life will be spent holed up in another country while his lawyers fight thousands of civil law suits. He will die a destitute.

That would be a nice irony.

I think he will lose and try to say it was rigged, force recounts or try to invalidate people's votes.

No matter who wins it's going to be the least legitimate election in history. Country is in for some dark times if we don't win senate, house and presidency.

According to polls, Trump is going to lose.

However, polls also said he'd lose in 2016, and we know how that turned out.

Another factor is Republicans and the Trump campaign are actively trying to make it harder to vote in some key states, zeroing in on districts that are likely to vote Democrat. Even if polls show Biden up in florida, for example, a last minute poll place subtraction could tip the balance in Trump's favor.


I think Trump has already won in the sense you're talking about of "showing the world what America is about." Or maybe Fox News won? the point is, even if Trump loses, he's going to lose narrowly...which is just sad given what a terrible President he's been. People do not judge their politicians based on performance anymore, apparently.

The stakes are high. It's a matter of survival. COVID is just the tip of the iceberg. If Trump stays around things are going to get a lot worse and quickly.

And the pathetic thing is his approval rating won't go under 40 percent. Even if we went into a full scale depression, I'd wager. ugh.

Am I wrong to try and find someone to have a physical relationship with?

I think it is wrong unless you have received some kind of "hall pass" from your wife.

It is also my belief that is is not fair, unless you went into the relationship with that understanding, for one party to say "I don't want this, and because I don't want this, you can't have it with anyone." That is something you would have to work out as a couple, and that means you need to have a frank discussion with your wife about this. If she is unwilling to have this discussion...honestly it may be a sign that there is something wrong in your marriage that needs addressing.

I really do think sexual intimacy is an important part of a healthy relationship. I do not think I could stay in a relationship where I was not having ***sex with my partner. I also do not think going behind your partners back is the way forward.

------------------------------------------------

On the other hand.

I am not a doctor, but I do not think it is normal for someone to wake up one day and suddenly they are no longer interested in ***sex. I wonder if your wife has experienced some kinda of trauma, mental or physical or both, that is preventing her from enjoying ***sex.

Some questions you should ask your wife: Does she pleasure herself? Is stimulation uncomfortable or painful to her? Does she have trouble becoming aroused? Depending on her answers to these questions, she should probably go to a doctor for this, and I would start with either a primacy care physician or a gynecologist. I know she has already gone to a doctor. Is she reluctant to see a doctor about this? If so, why?

I wonder if she does not see it as a problem and just expects you to be ok with it. I do not think that is fair if so.

I feel like sum1 has hacked my tech.

I guess it depends what they are doing and how they are doing it. If it is very serious you should probably get the police involved.
