    “well, the article said that the white nationalists had a permit to demonstrate. You know, in accordance with local and federal rules and regulations. The Left wing activists decided to demonstrate against that demonstration. The article never mentioned whether or not the Left wing guys had a permit BUT let’s assume they did.”

    Why should anyone need a permit to assemble in a public place? Why is it people who are against any regulation of gun ownership are perfectly ok with regulation of the right to assemble & the right to free speech?

    “The Rainbow was GOD’s promise after the
    flood that he would not destroy the world
    by that means again.
    The Homosexual community hijacked it
    for their purpose.”


    The Hebrews hijacked the rainbow & for that matter, the entire flood myth from the Sumerians.

    Sounds like the social conservatives feel like it’s time to put the “thoughts & prayers” for the Orlando victims behind them & get back to business as usual.

    “What part of “guns don’t shoot people, muslims people who are conflicted over their sexual preference & extreme religious views shoot people” do you not understand”?"

    The right wing wants to ignore that part for some reason.

    Sounds like Ted is leaning Libertarian…

    “Clearly it would be much more effective to require a background check on every purchaser. Right now about 40 percent of gun transfers go unchecked. But the gun nuts make it nearly impossible to pass any regulations on guns so you get these off the wall attempts to pass something even though it is basically going to accomplish nothing.”

    True. Despite the hysteria, “terrorists” with semi-automatic rifles count for a tiny fraction of gun deaths & gun crimes. I’d rather ignore the nutters who think they need to be armed for a zombie apocalypse & focus on the main problems: a complete lack of uniformity in background check laws that have made it all too easy for handguns to be passed from a straw buyer to a criminal. We also need much better enforcement of the existing laws against illegal transfers.

    Close up the background check loopholes & start going after the straw buyers!

    Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

    “Have you watched TV lately ???”

    Three Stooges was comedy for intellectuals? There were countless insipid serials released during the “golden age” of movie theaters. Vaudeville was crass, crude & meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

    Crude entertainment goes back before writing. The only reason past ages seem “smarter”, is all the rubbish has been forgotten.

    “I also saw in a newspaper website that the IQ drop is approx 15 points over the last 50 years.”

    The median IQ score for any current test is always rated at 100. I’m not sure how anyone could legitimately compare scores from 50 years ago with today. The test is not the same & the scores always fall out to 50% of test takers being above 100 & 50% below 100. 70% of people fall between 85 & 155. 85 is in the normal spectrum. Someone in 50-70 might have some retardation or a learning disability.

    IQ tests do not measure innate intelligence or ability to learn. They rely heavily on strong language skills, which are learned through education, as well as academic & cultural knowledge. People who score very low can still be high achievers in life.

    All this doesn’t prevent racist trolls from suggesting IQ scores are dropping because of too many immigrants.

    Your use of the word “moron” makes it pretty clear you haven’t got a single clue what you’re talking about. Citing Jay Leno as a source probably should have tipped me off.

    “Yes. They should ban ALL admissions preferences of any kind for anyone and everyone.”

    I guess you’ve never heard the phrase, “money talks”. Schools can’t afford to turn away kids who’s parents donate big money, who have athletic skills that bring in big money or have political connections that bring in big money.

    “And, yes, big business should recruit from primary school on, those that show an aptitude for the work that will advance the company’s goals.”

    Because, nepotism & the good old boy network are relics of days gone by… and kids who are born in poor places with inadequate schools don’t have a hard enough climb as it is.

    Hey, I’ve got a better idea! Let’s just bring back the aristocracy.
