    …in the NE United States, which by no stretch of the imagination can be called “global”. The world (taken as a whole) had a record warm February 2015.

    “Marriage” IS the civil function…two can be married without the benefit of the clergy. Matrimony is the church function…and you don’t need the state for that.

    The first is what allows you and your partner to exercise rights (and follow obligations). The second gets you right with a god.

    Not even close.

    Bibi’s thinking only of re-election. Obama’s thinking of how to prevent Iran’s development of a nuclear arsenal without killing thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iranians.

    Deaths that Bibi does not care about…after all they’re not Israeli.

    None there.

    Criticism of an Israeli politician, or even criticism of Israeli policies, is not antisemitism.

    If Israel wants to attack Iran, let them stick their own head in a noose rather than get big brother (USA) to do their dirty work for them.

    If Israel starts a nuclear shit-fest, it will probably have no choice but to extend it to the rest of the Middle East. They will emerge victorious…over a radioactive wasteland.

    Of course, by then, much of the world’s oil and gas reserves will be inaccessible.

    Iran. Then Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Turkey, and Iraq.

    Just as the first Iranian bomb reaches Tel Aviv, Israel will rain destruction on Tehran. And if the Israelis know they are doomed this will be followed by targets in the rest of the middle east.

    After all Israel has 200+ atomic devices, many of them two stage. If they’re going to be obliterated they will make good on their threat to take all their enemies with them.

    Call it MAD, but the ownership of nuclear weapons tends to reduce destructive conflict (but increase proxy wars).

    Nazi’s based their antisemitic holocaust on generations of Catholic (blood libel &c.) and Lutheran On Jews and their Lies) teachings. To that they added the standard right wing hatreds of the "other"‚Ķcommunists, gypsies, unionists, homosexuals &c, &c.

    The excesses of the communist states (Russia, China, Cambodia) were more to do with the cults of personality encouraged by the leaders. Their targets tended to be ideological opponents rather “other” races/religions.

    The Armenian genocide was religious…Islam vs. Christian.

    The North American genocide was inspired by greed and land hunger and excused by protestant rhetoric. Similarly for the middle and south American genocides, except those had excuses of Catholic rhetoric.

    Re: Fall of the Roman Empire: it is probable the fall and subsequent centuries (from 400CE to 1000CE) of stasis can be laid squarely at the feet of authoritarian Christianity. Only after the absolute authority of the Church had been broken (with the Great Schism) did Western civilization begin to crawl out of the ruins of the Roman Empire.

    Nothing virtuous, I must add, about going around unable to defend yourself and loved ones.

    What good does carrying a concealed weapon do if you are threatened with a gun or a knife/club within 5 meters. By the time you’ve drawn, chambered and cocked you’ll have been shot, stabbed, or clubbed…several times.

    You’re right and wrong at the same time. We have the highest corporate tax rates. Few, if any, large corporations pay taxes at that rate. Many have, effectively, negative taxes…subsidies, grants, and other incentives exceed the amount of tax paid. Check out Exxon’s balance sheet.

    After viewing a couple of “eye witness” news reports, I would call them “I’m witless” and no longer watch. I finally gave up cable and broadcast TV in 2000.
