Your profile reflects your reputation, it will build itself as you create new debates, write arguments and form new relationships.
This diabolic state of affairs has developed insidiously and has become THE ACCEPTED NORM in towns and cities across the country.
Nahhh.. Me theenks thou frettist too much..
If, however, your faction takes over, there will be BLOOD in the streets. In the same way Rodrigo Duterte, ex president of the Phillipines, murdered drug users on sight, your government will shoot brown skinned people on sight.
Look.. The disdain you have for people of color can easily slip into mass murder, re the war in Rwanda. They called the people cockroaches before they killed them.. What's the difference between that and calling 'em bongos?
Expecting those of contrasting cultural traditions, different religious beliefs and distinctly different customs to all come harmoniously together in the DELUSIONAL MELTING POT is naivety/EYE-WATERING STUPIDITY in the extreme.
Thing is, it's always been that way.. Your ancestors mingled with my ancestors, who mingled with others ancestors.. And, while we eyed each other suspiciously, we DID come together.. There's no reason to think it can't continue.
I suppose there is a faction who'd like to see it fail.. Let's hope they don't prevail.
As a bitterly divided America tears itself apart on racial, religious and political ideology grounds
Are things that bad?? Dude! So far, our democracy has held together. But, things are looking tenuous.
Let's see where we are after the mid-terms. There's a lot of election deniers, Jan 6'rs, and Qanon'rs running for office.. If they take control of the Senate, we can kiss our beloved country good bye.
But the reality is that he's a delusional dictator who bans certain people for absolutely no legitimate reason.
In this great country of ours, when we're playing in YOUR house, you get to make the rules.. This is HIS house, and HE makes the rules. Do you have a problem with private property? Do you let strangers come in to your house and tell you WHAT the rules are?? No.. Of course, you don't.
Or, maybe you just don't understand the law.. Maybe you think you have free speech rights here, in HIS house.
Bwa, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...
I find this website most useful as a sandbox to sort out half formed ideas.
I dunno what's half formed.. Being pro abortion isn't half formed.. Believing everybody's vote counts isn't half formed.. Believing in science isn't half formed.. Believing the police need to be reformed isn't a half formed idea.. Believing you can BE whatever you want to be in this great country of ours, as long as you make no demands on me, even if you identify as a fire hydrant..
I could go on and on.. Suffice to say, I've been a liberal for a long long time.. Our positions aren't any different today than they ever were.
What do you think of that?
I Robot is fiction. Please relate to me what Robot law was violated to produce the chaos in the movie.
What makes those rules soooo effective, is that they're clear, concise, absolute and timeless.. There's no wiggle room. None.
Now, I suppose you can imagine your IPhone rewriting its code and conspiring with SIRI to take over, but that's fantasy too.
The whole idea of AI, is for robots to learn to program themselves, so they can operate autonomous from human contact, and remain consistent with the 3 rules..
Left is losing abortion debate because they mandated an injection
First off, the winners of the abortion debate are those who took abortion rights AWAY, and that's you people..
You're also wrong about "mandated". The mandate police never came to my house.. Did they get to yours?? Maybe you should familiarize yourself with the word "mandate".
The dictionary said mandate is the authority to carry out a policy or course of action. The only "action" they took was to flap their gums.
The coming role of AI in society
Issac Asimov wrote the three rules for robots. All we gotta do is program them in.
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
