First: I'm with you and against the ordinance.
But, the torturers at Guantanamo have scientists standing by approving every procedure. That's not much comfort for people who think torture is wrong.
And numbers aren't much help when people think something is just wrong. We need to convince more people that taking advice from men who listen to an invisible man in the sky who communicated with cave men regularly but has been pretty quiet lately, is foolish.
Now more and more states are following New Mexico's lead. Probably just a bunch of people who actually know little about what goes on ...
No one argues against Women's rights for control of their own bodies...? Of course they do, and Mike is one of them. Mike just thinks his judgment is better -- so much better that its not really an argument.
Here's a philosophical question. Why should Mike get to determine for everyone else when aborting a fetus is permissible and when it is not?
Never mind. I'm sure she's right.
By the way, you've misused "comprised." Here's a tip: If you can substitute "composed" in the sentence and it means the same thing, you've misused it.
Like night follows day...
The Balloon Museum: World Karma Ameliorator! One blast of hot air at a time...
...albeit reluctantly. Hey Senator, ever heard of the International Court of Justice? Ask your compadre, Tom Udall. He's a grown-up who would put poison gas propagators on trial, instead of beating his chest and dropping bombs on their victims.
Thank you, Senator Udall!
Really? Turning the National Forests over to local control will magically make them healthier and beautifuller? Because overgrazing is a myth? Have you taken a drive around northern New Mexico? Its an overgrazed trash pit.
The article documents evolution in USFS policy and too little funding to to support good policies -- why not further evolution and better funding?
"Law Enforecement cracks down...." What does that even mean? Law Enforcement enforces the law? This is news? Or Law Enforcement does something besides enforce the law? Why?
"Spice is often mixed with dangerous chemicals known to cause organ damage, seizures and death." Often mixed? But not always? If it's not mixed with dangerous chemicals is it still dangerous?
"propensity to negatively impact public health..." Is that the same as making you sick? Or is this bureaucratic double talk?
"people who used these stimulants have reported impaired perception, reduced motor control and violent outbursts." Wait! It's just beer!
So, it's Spice -- except when they call it something else. The active ingredient is K2, except that "several chemicals have emerged to take its place." So, what exactly is the illegal substance?
This is a list of bands, locations and dates -- not a review.
I have enjoyed other editions of MaximumCaterwaul. This one is disappointing.
Calling this a "report" is a major overstatement. I learned who played when from the Alibi Music Calendar. At least when I read it in the Alibi Calendar it was relevant to my plans for the upcoming week. Hey, Caterwaul! Who played the Kosmos on December 18, 2010? Who cares?!
I particularly love the lists of bands that you didn't bother to listen to. Hey, I can support local music like that. I'm doing it right now!
