Profound mental retardation, and severe bodily handicaps I think would be obvious choices for termination Philosopher Peter Singer weighed the moral justifications for taking the lives of disabled babies. He concluded that in severe cases, such as for children with spina bifida, it might well be morally wrong not to take a baby’s life. For less serious conditions, such as hemophilia, Singer concluded that the decision as to whether or not to kill the infant should depend on whether it would make the parents happy, and whether they intended to “replace” the child with another, non-disabled one:
Should racial profiling be acceptable practice in the fight against crime?
Why is it deemed good practice when used at airports but immoral when used otherwise?Wiki.......Airport racial profiling in the United States is U.S. government activity directed at a suspect or group of suspects because of their race or ethnicity. Under analysis Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, objective factors measure whether law enforcement action is constitutional, and under the Fourteenth Amendment challenges to the practice are assessed under the customary strict scrutiny test for racial classifications.
Since September 11, 2001, there have been reports on increases in racial profiling at airports, particularly targeting people who appear to be Muslim or of Middle Eastern descent. It has been a routine practice by law enforcement officials to stop individuals who are profiled because of their race and religious and ethnic appearance or who may appear to be "suspicious".
Malcolm Shaw QCProfessor of international law, Leicester UniversityWas the war in Iraq legal? "On the basis of the intelligence we had at the time and the publicly available knowledge, there was a credible and reasonable argument in favour of the legality of the war. The authorisation to use force in [UN resolution] 678 included the restoration of international peace and security as well as the liberation of Kuwait. Resolution 687, after the 1991 ceasefire, included getting rid of... weapons of mass destruction. The run of resolutions after that shows there was still backing for it in the security council. The possession of such weapons constituted a threat to international peace and security. Resolution 1441 [in 2002] reiterated that. It was the common belief of the security council that Iraq had such weapons, and that they constituted a breach of binding resolutions. We know [from the Blix report] that Iraq did not fully cooperate. Through that period there was a long series of security council resolutions condemning the Iraqis for what was believed to be their possession of WMD."

The more open a country is to Muslim mass migration, the more dangerous it is to women.
Islamic doctrines and Arabic cultural mores that permit, explicitly or implicitly, the sexual assault of non-Muslim women who are not dressed properly or walk unaccompanied by a male relative, are pernicious. And Muslims rapists in Europe and Australia have cited belief and culture in their defense. But mass migration is often inherently disruptive, breaking down values and trust in stable communities.
Is banking the most ethical career choice for altruistic individuals?
College graduates who consider themselves truly altruistic individuals would no doubt pursue a career that’s extremely lucrative if their goal is earning to give , surely this makes better sense than the traditional leaning towards a lowly paid job such as charity work
The idiotic Troll Burrito Lunch last week claimed breathlessly like a hysterical schoolgirl hey guys “physicists have reversed time using a quantum computer “ , no one but he believes his far fetched hysterical claim, while one expert said his claim was like reversing a video tape and claiming the same. Burrito is a Troll and a very stupid one at that watch him attempt to lie his way out of this latest embarrassment......Read on as to what the actual facts are from genuine experts in the field https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613123/no-ibm-didnt-just-reverse-time-with-a-quantum-computer/
How can mostly fundies in the U S claim to be followers of Jesus if they do and act in complete and opposite manner to what he preached? How do they justify this appalling double standard? It seems fundies have reimagined their god to be a a new “improved” version straight from the Bible Belt Other Christian believers in the U S do indeed try to act as Jesus taught fundies are a different breed but quiet sizable Jesus told his followers to feed the hungry , shelter the weak and help the needy also don’t wage war against each other. Apparently he didn’t mean this at all as American Fundies say what he really meant was ....build a wall .....no free medical care on my dime buddy .....tell the poor to get a friggin job .... cut down on welfare ......and build that military up No doubt one particular religious specimen on C D will bleat ....FOOL , HYPOCRITE, LIAR......IGNORE........
How can it be wrong for the Christian baker to refuse to bake a cake on religious principles yet get fined 150,000 dollars ......yet Muslim truck drivers get 250,000 dollars compensation for refusing to transport beer because it violated their religious principles seems very unfair .....Jury Awards $240,000 to Muslim Truck Drivers In EEOC Religious Discrimination Suit

Microaggression is on the rise , I say down with type of thing it’s appalling it’s discrimination of the worst kind 😂😂😂😂😂A microaggression is an unwitting act of discrimination by people who think they’re super right-on, such as asking a black woman how she keeps her hair so funky or inquiring if a lesbian has ever had ‘real sex’. On some American campuses, professors have been accused of racial microaggression for correcting spelling mistakes in black students’ essays.
Wow! Issued with constant threats legal proceedings and violence for asking a question
Here is what I politely asked Ming , of course he totally respects freedom of speech ....I ASKED THIS ONLY TO BE MET BY THREATS OF EXTREME VIOLENCE Ming your whole argument is invalid before it even begins as like all religious arguments it’s making an assertion based on speculation and nothing else , if you want others to believe in supernatural entities the burden of proof is with you to demonstrate this as you’re making the positive claim ,I’m not saying 100per cent you’re wrong but I am saying until you can prove otherwise your claims are merely that claims based on opinion .If you find my assessment unfair please point out why it’s so?
Mint mentioned this absolute buffoon earlier I shouldn’t have watched as I nearly died laughing , how do these idiots even cross the road without help Is this a typical member of the Republican party or are there any competing videos that can top or equal this ?https://youtu.be/3E0a_60PMR8
I’ve changed my mind Socialism rocks, inflation at 13;000%
Venezuela is doing Socialism proud , high fives all around Marx would be doing cartwheels with delight , this place is fucking utopia The country does not measure inflation, so its true rate is anyone's guess. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg see it rising 1,864% this year, while the International Monetary Fund estimates that figure at around 13,000%. You read that right: 13,000%.
Marx told the working class to seize control of the Machinery of the capitalist class and take control , Jews were mainly the capitalist class in Germany Hitler followed Marx to the letter .....I think Marx would have been impressed
Hitlers praise for Marx must make socialists so proud
In a famous speech on Labour’s Day on 1st May 1927, Hitler declared:We are socialists. We are enemies of today’s capitalistic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.
