Of course your party gains politically by people being hurt as much they can be by the shutdown as you can blame the opposing party for everything.

We don't gain politically. We don't want people to be hurt. That's why the Senate has passed four bills to reopen the budget, and House Democrats are standing in the rain right now calling for Boehner to allow a vote.

The people don't matter to anyone in DC anymore, whatever gains the most power over the opposition is all that matters.

The American people matter a great deal to me and the people I work with.

Getting reelected is what matters to people in DC, anything else is second place, and a very very very distant second place at that.

Doubling down on the lie.

A plant-based diet is both cheaper and healthier. If you take it to extremes (yeah vegans, I'm talking about you) you need to worry about protein and various micronutrients that Sheriff Joe isn't going to be interested in. But they'll be fine if they're getting cheese, eggs, fish, etc.

It is very easy to get enough protein, as long as you are getting enough calories, even as a vegan.

Drug enforcement isnt a job, its an industry that is siphoning tax dollars in incredible amounts.  In truth the war on marijuana is a criminal act perpetrated against the taxpayers by the federal govt.  The rest is just a smokescreen to help them hold on to that money siphon.

Which sort of breaks down if marijuana starts generating tax dollars instead of siphoning them off. I guess the trick will be to cut Unc Sam in on the party, because as long as legalization is a state initiative the states get all of that new revenue.

Does anybody here live in CO or WA? I'm curious how recreational marijuana is priced and how much of the price is taxes.

I live in WA. Recreational mj isn't for sale yet, and probably won't be for nearly a year. Production is broken down into three tiers; production, processing, and retail. Each tier will need permits, and the product will be taxed at each level. If they aren't careful, black market mj will continue to be a thriving industry. The medical industry manages to keep the price at about $10 per gram (not including extracts and edibles).

They are putting a cap on production and are just about finished estimating demand. Their outcome assumes each dope smoker consumes about 123 joints per year.

Arclight, I assume you live in a state with marijuana dispensaries. If so, when you get a recommendation from your doctor (or any doctor), go to the dispensary and lay out everything you've got going on and what results you'd like to see. If it's a good dispensary, they should be able to recommend a product best suited to your condition and desires. I haven't really heard of doctors being involved beyond the recommendation, as far as dosage, etc., goes.

Tinctures and edibles are also a good alternative to smoking.

sad story anyway



Yep, the sniper was in D.C, but they did actually live in Washington State (my city even).

Really?   Making a threat of if you cross this line (using chemical weapons) we will take action, and then we don't take action and really don't do anything at all is going to restore things?    Highly doubtful, it will just make people laugh at anything we say we are going to do in the future.

Some people are going to laugh no matter what we do, and there is no contenting them. You should be familiar with that. To think any of the other presidential hopefuls would have handled it any better is ludicrous.

Present both in the curriculum.  Present the two sides equally, and let the person think, digest and decide what they think is true.  This is what this side believes, this is what this side believes. Simple

So might as well present vampires and werewolves, too, and let the person decide if it's true. Where do you stop?

There are people all over the world who see reality in a way that is contrary to reality. How is it that if someone says they feel like a woman even though they are a man suddenly validate the misconception? Rather than it being looked at as a mental issue like so many other mental disconnects?

Ale

If a man says he's feels like a monkey, how is that contrary to reality?

Fact is, no one has actually dared to answer ATB's question.  If a man says he feels like he's female, that's accepted - at least by many.  But if he said he feels like he's a monkey and starts going around acting like monkey, I think most people would say he's got a problem.  So what is the principle for distinguishing between the two?  Is there a principle involved, or it is just arbitrary?

What is at issue is not whether he is a monkey, but whether he feels like one. Who are we to say how he feels?

So if a man went around acting like a monkey, you'd think that was ok?

I'm not going to validate your premise that believing one is a monkey is anything like having a gender identity issue. There is nothing contradictory in thinking a person that believes they are a monkey has a problem, yet a male that thinks he is a woman, doesn't. Humans have the capacity to be male/female and/or man/woman. Humans have no capacity to be a monkey.

If there is a biological "cause" of transgenderism, it likely has to do with hormones during pregnancy -- where the genetic codes in the fetus cause hormones to be released that shape its physical traits, but for some reason the hormonal mix that effects mental development comes out differently, resulting in a mentally-imprinted gender that is at odds with the physically-developed sex. Given the complicated nature of sex/gender and fetal development, it's surprising that transgenderism is actually as rare as it is.

To compare the plight of transgendered people to someone who thinks he is actually a completely different type of creature, well beyond the scope of the sort of hormonal/genetic combinations that may be the cause of transgenderism, is insulting and derisive towards an already maligned and misunderstood portion of our community.

ATB, consider someone born with both types of genitals.  Do you think that by removing the female set it will make the person identify as a male?  But if you had removed the male set you think they would have identified as a female?

Do people born with both genitals have standard male/female chromosome make-ups?

Ale

Good question; I wasn't sure either. 

From Wikipedia it appears that having both sets usually means you have both an XX and an XY pair, but from looking at this article, there's a variety of ways that you could have a normal XX or XY pair but exhibit the opposite type of genitals at birth.

I found the above interesting, but just for clarity, being transgender doesn't necessarily mean you have a chromosomal situation like in that link above.

That's some interesting information. I hope ATB reads it. If the biological separation of sex is not always clear cut, why should it be any different psychologically?

Because Republicans will drag their feet at any mention of healthcare reform and it was the only way to get a foothold.
