    There is some interesting info on this site (which seems legit). How or where do you get to see a breakdown of the individual donations that each candidate gets. Similar to this from the NRA.

    Is there any merit to thinking that Trump might become his own worst enemy when the campaign really gets going? Will there be such a thing as Trump fatigue,…[Read more]

    I also like Hickenlooper, but that name. President Hickenlooper. OK we can do that, I guess. LOL.

    Detailed Maps of the Donors Powering the 2020 Democratic Campaigns (as of July 2019, per New York Times)

    Focus is mostly on Sanders, Warren, Buttigieg, Harris, Biden, and O’Rourke, with mentions of 15 others.

    I’ve neglected to follow the debates, but am hoping/wishing that Dems can favor a moderate candidate that can more likely beat Trump.…[Read more]

    Like so many many many times. A star trek episode sums up many philosophical ideas better than most philosophy books do

    This line has stuck with me over the years.

    Unseen, I’m still curious what your answer is.

    What do you all think?

    Like so many many many times. A star trek episode sums up many philosophical ideas better than most philosophy books do. In an episode of DS9, in a future where Earth is a paradise and a strong Federation reigns, they are invaded by a dominion and humans become somewhat ugly in the war. Quark says:

    pull their legs off one at a time

    Well, if you really want them to suffer just pump a trillion tons of carbon dioxide into their atmosphere and they can “global warming” to death over a century or so.

    Yeah, I was gonna say we are actually doing this to all the earth’s creatures now. Is the prime directive continuation of our spe…[Read more]

    that not evolving is bad somehow

    That’s not what I meant at all. I included that because for many people, they would be MORE likely to not eradicate some simple life forms if they were eventually to become conscious sentient beings capable of all the wonders and creative abilities and emotion and experiences that we have. The point wasn’t to…[Read more]

    this life form will never evolve into anything more (they’ve been like that for billions of years and have no capacity for genetic change or any other mechanism?).

    We need to discuss an unstated assumption in your arguments, which s that not evolving is bad somehow. Maybe not evolving further (they must have evolved somehow into t…[Read more]

    As for number 1, kill them all. pull their legs off one at a time, use flame throwers and RAID bombs. Take their coal, drill for their oil baby, drill, drill, drill.

    Actually unless us humanoids need their resources for our very survival we have no right to destroy their world. However……if we need these resources in a dire way; the first…[Read more]

    Two questions.

    1. You come across the planet filled with millions of insect like creatures. Your scientists show they are extremely basic life forms with few senses, almost non-existent mental activity, no signs of pleasure or pain and most importantly your scientists have concluded with as much certainty as humanly possible that without our…[Read more]

    Here is some graphed data on internet research by people interested in the democratic candidates during, and before the debate. (Vox story link).

    handicap the election

    Not sure what to take seriously (if anything) here, but I’ll say anyway that if big money corrupts campaigns, more of it will just invite even more corruption and undesirable opportunists.

    I’m betting on candidates voluntarily greatly limiting big money donations, founding or finding an internet-wide platform…[Read more]
