Of course I can.

Marriage is about subsidizing the creation of the next generation of mankind. Used to be, if you couldn't get pregnant together, you could get an annulment, and the marriage was considered dissolved.

My position, and, in a democratic society which runs on consensus, I don't actually need to defend it, is that if you get married, and enjoy the privileged status that that entails at my expense, you OWE me several well adjusted children to carry society forward when I retire, and if you get divorced, you OWE me for all the benefits you enjoyed at my expense. If you are infertile, you can't get married. If you are too old to have children, you can't get married. Live with who you want, fuck who you want, but marriage is about families, and if you're not interested in making and raising one, then leave it to others.

Religion really doesn't have anything to do with it. Homosexual marriage is an outrageously, ridiculously irrational thing all by itself.

I thought it was well known that The Nexus 6 models had issues. Thankfully they'll only last four years at best.

I still think they're defective by design. Heed my words: there'll be more trouble down the road unless the entire model line is cancelled.

If Goo^H^H^HTyrell insists shipping them, then at least they should be kept off-world at all costs!

When they fired the guy who invented Javascript because he believes, as I do, that marriage should be between a man and a woman... yes, that was the straw that broke the camels back.

But they were involved in that Gnome Outreach Program for Women fiasco too, if you need another example, and some if not all of the SJW's who were responsible for wasting all of Gnome's resources now work at Mozilla in positions of authority.

You're welcome to try to make a case for their values being superior to mine if you like, but you'd have to be willfully blind to not know that this is happening.

Query: Why is it that anyone with the word "wolf" in their name is almost guaranteed to be a pencil-dicked basement dweller who blames women for his inability to interact with them? I'm genuinely curious about this phenomenon.
Beats me... I'm on the 7th floor with a gorgeous view of the Rocky Mountains, I had a beautiful woman share my bed last night, and my dick is slightly thicker than a can of Red Bull.

Query: How many times did you follow strange men into their basement and check out their dicks before you noticed a pattern?

Maybe if they spent more time and resources on their project and less time and resources on "gender issues", they wouldn't be circling the toilet.

Their organization been corrupted at the highest levels. It's not going to be repaired. It'll just degenerate further until the project is forked or dies with a whimper.

because slow warming is a small problem, over centuries (when we have no idea what the tech landscape will be in 50 years much less 300.)

The problem is, we can't even prove global warming even a little bit. And that is not exactly what the Global Warming Alarmists were telling us a few years ago about how bad it was going to get very quickly (no ice in the arctic, super hurricanes, polar bears drowning) ... ALL of which didn't happen, but didn't happen spectacularly.

How come Al Gore doesn't get labeled "Global Warming Left Wing Nut" by the same people calling people like me "Right Wing Nut"? Oh, because it is bad for business?

Look, I all for conservation and leaving small footprints, but you can't do that with almost 7 billion people to feed. The only way nature is going to survive is to kill us all off by our stupidity.

You don't know anything about me, or how I feel.

Intelligent people tolerate the uncomfortable feeling of ignorance, while stupid people fill the gaps with whatever ridiculous crap pops into their tiny little brains.

Your refusal to acknowledge your own ignorance telegraphs the latter. Might want to do something about that.

No, I meant rights. Governments were formed to protect rights. And you're correct, rights are immutable. But they can be stolen and abrogated in the name of the group, which is what the (D) and (R) parties are fighting over, which rights should we give up in the name of security, children, old people ....

He said "Draft" is gone, you changed it to "Selective Service" which is simply a prerequisite of a Draft. Convenient distinction. There has been no draft since 1973, at the end of the Vietnam war. Suffice it to say, that we have had two full generations of draftable people never see a draft. It is effectively gone.

We don't need a Constitutional Amendment to stop the draft, we already have stopped the draft. A constitutional amendment would only make it harder to reinstate (via another Amendment). And since we are talking about likelihoods and possibilities, and haven't ever reached the point of 0% you are just trying to make an impossible point out of ignorance.

Interestingly, its Richard Nixon that campaigned on ending the draft and the Selective Service, and Carter that re-instituted the Selective Service in 1980. I know, I was alive back then, and someone under the age of 20 probably has no clue about. Liberals have indoctrinated young people so much they thing Democrats are champions of Civil Rights (while they opposed civil rights movement in the 60s) and opposition to the draft.

With age, comes wisdom that youth and exuberance is in need of. So, no, children cannot teach adults anything useful in general. A child may be wise, but adults tend to be wiser than children.

And paternity leave and maternity leave are two separate words, describing the same or similar period of time after the birth on one's child. Of course, if you count days missed comparison of maternity and paternity leave, you might find that women take more time off when kids are born (maternity leave) and men take less time off (paternity).

You make a lot of left wing assumptions, like "Rational Choices" are efficient, you know, centralized planning. Communism doesn't work, not because it isn't rational, it is because it makes sense ... on paper. Or to put it the way my dad used to say it, "In theory, theory and practice are the same, in practice, they are not".

Or, to put it yet another way, in many types of jobs, to do a "work slowdown" all one has to do is go "by the book". Meaning that you do everything, exactly as prescribed by the rational people making the rules. This simply means that you're not as efficient as when you don't really follow all the rules.

Rational rules don't always work as expected. Yes, the market seams irrational, and often times isn't efficient. However, free markets tends towards efficiency and that in and of itself is a rational choice.

No, that is not what he said. That is how you twisted what he said, which only shows that some adults act more like kids who haven't learned anything.

For instance, What Adults Can Learn From Kids is a null point of view. ALL adults have been kids, so ... kids offer nothing new to adults. We can be reminded of what we already know, but that isn't really "learning".

The concept of using kids to question Adults is a tactic used by people with an agenda of control. You see, it is easy to manipulate the young minds, and if you tell them something is so, they will believe it, and if you can convince adults that kids know more than they do, you can control the world. This doesn't mean kids cannot contribute. It also doesn't mean kids are less intelligent than adults. In fact, i know some kids who are smarter than many adults. Which says more about the adults than it does the kids.

Nothing happens.
