She lived there for years before the property changed hands into the hands of a small-time real estate speculator. He figu...

Re: Gay Rights - LGBT - Same Sex Marriage

Rowling is dead to me. I keep being surprised that people are surprised by her. Her books were steeped in biological essentialism, with how you were born deciding what you could do and which society you were part of. The 'fight for rights' of the series followed the same model as 2nd feminism's whi...

Herman Cain has developed symptoms that are serious enough that he has been hospitalized. He apparently attended both the Tulsa and Arizona rallies.

Re: Hijack this thread

I'll say it again. Your argument is specious. And your explanation of why "shunning" is bad is a straw man. No one is condoning shunning, as it is commonly used (cf. Jehovah's Witnesses). An individual on a public board choosing not to see the posts of a poster whose posts are upsetting to that ind...

That's pretty much true of a lot of rural areas of the country. They used to teach that in history classes, but people seem to have conveniently forgotten all about that history.
