    A simple example of why ranked choice voting (RCV) is better. A sorority is trying to decide what to do on spring break, on the table are three options 1) ski in the VT, 2) beaches in FL, or 3) ski in CO. In single first choice voting, 40% vote for FL, 30% for VT, 30% for CO; they go to FL and 60% are unhappy. With RCV they go skiing somewhere and only 40% are unhappy. I agree with #monya_43 this avoids the spoiler party or candidate that splits the majority vote. More Spock, less Kirk.

    “Since Roe was struck down in June, Tennessee has banned abortions once cardiac activity is detected, which is about six weeks of pregnancy. But on the 25th, nearly all abortions will be outlawed, except in cases related to preventing the death or serious injury of a pregnant woman. That law will make no exceptions for rape or incest.” ! – Not giving those who can give birth the right to control their own bodies is horrible and clearly a form enslavement. I already hear the chains rattling. Not making exceptions for “rape or incest” is just plain evil on scale beyond imagination. What kind of person would support that kind of law? On what planet, in what universe does that make any sense? I fear for the soul of our country.

    @Fritzsch – Nice reference. The math/geometry definition of orthogonal definitely matches the cartoon image of the signs is , “upright and/or right angle”. It is my hope the image returns to the Taxonomy definition, “an orthogonal classification is one in which no item is a member of more than one group, that is, the classifications are mutually exclusive.”

    @Free or Not? I agree with your statement, “If society was oriented toward Good”, However, I ask that you keep an open mind about how that is accomplished. Christ and religion are not the only path. I agree they can be a very helpful path, I have met some wonderful Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists who are are dedicated to making the world a more peaceful and better place. I was raised by one parent who was an out atheist and the other who was an unwavering agnostic (a scientist with an open mind). The message that my siblings and I received was clear and repeated often, “Your task in life is not about getting good things, it is about doing good in the world.” For the most part we all lived up to our parent’s admonition. I will graciously accept and support your Christian path toward a “society” that is “oriented toward Good”, if you will reciprocate that generosity. From everything I have read (including the Bible) I think that is what your Christ would have wanted.

    The game is rigged. Even if the investors/sponsors lose money they still “make money” it becomes a simple tax write off and they pay less taxes on their other earning for the year. Perhaps rigged is the wrong phrase, it is more of a Golden Rule thing. Those that have the gold make the rules.

    #QuincyAdamsGhost – Acknowledging art in our world is never off topic, and I agree.
