Comment Lefties? (Score 1) 9

If not being heartless is being a leftist, then I'm leftist. Letting children die so you can become even more filthy rich is just pure evil.

This is a drug that costs less than ten bucks to manufacture that stops children from dying a horrible death from a severe allergy. Charging six hundred bucks for it is beyond criminal and wel into Evil with a capital E. Satanically evil.

Comment Taxes are punishment? (Score 1) 3

If taxes are punishment then the rich need their taxes tripled after all the unpunished evil they've done so far this century. The poor are being punished enough - by the rich. If having to pay for roads and bridges is punishment, then having to pay for food and water is, too.

As a Christian, I have no problem with taxes (Mark 12:17). Of course, if you worship mammon rather than God, taxes would indeed be punishment.

Places like ITT give you quite the song and dance when you visit their campus. And "walk you through the process". The simple mistake people make is not getting a second opinion. Are students responsible for their own mistakes? Sure. Is it fair? No. Should we shut down those who exploit other people, that is gain profit without offering something of equivalent value in return? Absolutely.

In the Netherlands there is research on 100+ year old people. They are examined as to why they are that old. People can donate their body to science so others will learn.

How I know this? Because my great-aunt was the inspiration to start this project. She donated her body to science, so others may learn. I repeat that in words that are better understood here: She open sourced her body.
Yes, she asked SPECIFALLY that others can learn from her body. The process of what would happen with her body was well known by her as well as the procedure (immediate replacement of blood e.g.) So I agree that we have just started and I am proud that I have know one of the persons who was the basis of some serious knowledge about aging healthy.

To me Free Speech is not the be all end all. I am much more interested in Personal Privacy. And obviously the US is not interested in the protection of privacy, because it will cost the companies effort and thus money. Free speech requires them to do nothing and that costs nothing and is the easy way out. It benefits the companies so no objections there and it sounds nice for the people, so no objection there.

Protection of privacy would mean objections of the companies and most people have NO idea what it actually entails and what the dangers are of not having it means. Because without it, all the rest of your rights becomes meaningless.

Having ONLY freedom of speech without any protection of privacy is a hollow right at best and for those countries (as we are talking about the Internet of the world here) death of you and your family at worst.
