    Encogitaitoner,

    Would you enable the fee simple owners to resume the former practice of restrictive covenants in which the right of alienation is restricted if the potential purchaser is a racially undesirable individual? Which free market capitalism infringement is honored?

  • It depends on the context and spirit in which the jokes are delivered. They’re not inherently wrong, racist or offensive.

  • My name is Jake and i am considered a flake.

    Oh hey Enco, do you suppose your experiences in procuring a vaccine shot is a fair sample of transactions enabling you to assess capitalism? I assure you that capitalism is responsible for a great many ills.

  • Balls to the wall capitalism.

    Keep drinking the capital kool aid. The exploiters are happy to have the exploited express satisfaction at their good fortune. Reason? Does that involve questioning your views? No issues with capitalism? okay

  • Unfortunately Encothink is all to typical. How complicated is this issue?

    If you don’t have an agenda or ideology it is simply unconscionable the state of affairs in USA as to health care and uninsured Americans. European nations have a model that works. USA does not.

  • Oh, and remember i am the guy who told you to keep your government handout. I have to get points for that!

  • Encogitationer, do you ever think?

    Can you, are you capable of ratiocination without utilizing the lens of your ideology and the ready anecdotes and propaganda?

    Anyways it is same ole same…party before country…ideology before people…confirmation bias…the ice capades…refrozen ice cream…

  • Jesus H. Christ, Mary and Joseph and the jackass!

    ENCO! Tell me you are joking so i can laugh.

    Cradle to grave security produces a blind mindset but capitalism without enough security produces nunofit? We just saw people dying in nursing homes like flies on fly paper because of a failure to plan or care. And caring occurs to a greater degree…[Read more]

    I could not say there are two kinds of truth. Truth is not aesthetic unlike the designed lie which is aka religion.

    Taken as a whole any passages in the bible that are advocating peace and love are negated by a tenor that is all about power, maintaining an unjust social hierarchy and the contemporary mores which are a little awful…

      Simon what is the nexus between Craig and love? As i see it being an active apologist and gearing one’s efforts toward perpetuating Christianity is not love.

                        • But if we assume that love has its own logic – then it’s possible to contradict it, with greed or anger. It’s negatable. If there was something useful about white supremacism, then I would be forced to recognise it.

                      Listened to the video of William Lane Craig and Roger Penrose.

                      Apart from some thought provoking notions about cosmology it was painful to listen to Craig. He is so unctuous and lacking in integrity that if there were truth in advertising the man would introduce himself as a professional charlatan who makes Christianity a little less…[Read more]

                      • I like William Lane Craig. In what way do you think he lacks integrity? He’s just got his ideas and he sticks to them. But he’s also very analytical. I’ve never felt he lacks integrity.
                        • His own words:

                          I think Martin Luther correctly distinguished between what he called the magisterial and ministerial uses of reason. The magisterial use of reason occurs…

                          • That may seem off, to us rationalists, but I think he’s talking about the difference between the logic of love or compassion, and the logic of the physical universe.
                            • But in a way, the two are separate domains, so it’s hard to see how they could contradict. Compassion has to take hard facts into account.

                                            • William Lane Craig’s debates lack integrity, quoting his opponent out of context, never actually addressing questions directly and his voice alone is akin to fingernails against a blackboard.
                                            • Correct me if i am mistaken Enco., you would rather maintain your political principles or political ideology than eliminate a great deal of human suffering?

                                              Where can we go with this? Lets see. You are attributing the high cost of health care to medicare and medicaid. At least you have given a toot to inflation. But Ya say when someone else pays the provider has no reason to hold down costs. Private insurers pay. Those are businesses. Yet the costs are feckin ridiculous. Do you want to outlaw…[Read more]
