    But you are saying some rules should be enforced. You are saying a woman shouldn’t be allowed to use it as every day birth control. What if a woman finds out she is having a boy, but she wants a girl, so she gets an abortion. Is that ok?

    Pro choice can be a problem if you take it too far. Pro life can be a problem if you take it too far. A line needs to be drawn somewhere in-between. Unfortunately, the grey area is a really complicated moral dilemma for each individual circumstance.

    Yes, killed by conservative capitalist extremists that refused to do acknowledge and address climate change.

    Such a shame

    No, the students shouldn’t run the classroom, but if multiple authority figures are unfairly picking on her, then she has the moral right to stand up for herself and not bow down to their “authority”.
    Looking at your definition… inspiring obedience is a good thing. Demanding obedience isn’t as good and often ends up with conflict.
    If authority figures started picking on you and singling you out unfairly, I’m sure you would eventually reach a point where you were fed up and “resisted arrest” too.
    Please note that I used the word “IF” above. If authority figures are picking on her. Maybe they weren’t. Maybe she is a complete brat that had no valid reason to resist. I’m willing to consider that possibility. Even if that were true though, the response was still excessive.

    Respecting others? Sorry, but “authority figures” that are bullies do not deserve any respect.

    Conservatives find that hard to understand.

    Either they hate the person, and everything that person does is “wrong”, or they love a person and everything that person does is “right”.

    The idea of “I support this aspect of the person, but disapprove of that aspect”… well that simply doesn’t compute for them.

    Lets take a look at the history of mankind…

    Lets count all the times that the Scientific community said “x is true”, and the deniers said “no, no, no, you are wrong”.

    How many times have the scientists been wrong?

    Over 90% of the scientific community is confident that climate change is a real threat…

    But they must be wrong… you know just like they were wrong about the earth being round, and smoking causing cancer…

    A bit of clarification… the Vancouver law only applies to passing a building inspection for new construction. So some people install the cheapest leavers available, and then change them to knobs once the occupancy permit has been issued.

    Or you could move to pretty much any other developed country…
    It is amazing how America is a world leader in so many things, but completely behind the times with others.

    Gore is just one voice among many… I’m not sure why the deniers can’t comprehend that science works differently than fundamentalist religion.
    With Fundamentalist religion, the religious leader speaks, and followers believing that everything coming out of that leader’s mouth is the gospel truth.
    I know it is hard to comprehend, but with science, we don’t idolize people like that. Gore just happens to be the ‘messenger’. He didn’t do the research, he isn’t the scientist. There is nothing special about him other than his determination to get the message out. If he turns starts misinterpreting the science, then he will lose his credibility, but that won’t change the science.
    Furthermore, most of us who are concerned about climate change know for a fact that he has made mistakes, and isn’t always correct. We know this because that is true for everyone. Nobody is perfect.
