    Yeah, except the US government relies on it to fund its wars, its social programmes &c. &c. It has a vested interest in the continued existence of the FED.

    Okay. Now please explain how this shows it's "private" as opposed to an arm of the state, without thereby rendering the labels meaningless. Also explain how a "private" organization is appointed a...

    What qualifies you to make this statement, exactly? And the FED is not a private bank. Please stop peddling nonsense. Oh yes, I forget, labels matter more than reality to some.

    I look like a metalhead, I'm not jovial, I'm not very talkative (except in class discussions) and I'm polite in a purely instrumental sense. I'm commonly perceived as "cold" (because I am not...

    Good. I hope they learn a lesson from Japan.



    Sheer nonsense. He's correct on the fundamentals, but what is implicit here is that borrowing is unqualifiedly good. No, it isn't. Not if there is...

    I was bored in high school too, but I still strived for good grades because a) I wanted to get into a top university (it turns out even that isn't enough; you also need all sorts of touchy-feely...

    If they're persons by force the corollaries of rationality must also apply to them. Can they choose rationally? Then their choices bear consequences for which they're responsible. So how about those...

    The scare quotes are wholly unnecessary, and I respect your position. I am simply making a point regarding revolutions, i.e. that they are uncommonly led/instigated by majorities but instead by...

    If one means by "civil union" a purely contractual relation, I have no problem with that. It's between the parties involved. Marriage is a more loaded term, so it's best it remained the choice of the...

    Disaffected/rebellious/emo teenagers.

    The first is your personal opinion and no one is forcing you to witness two men (or women) having sex in public. The second bit is a red herring. I can think of at least half a dozen sexual acts that...

    Are you kidding me? Encouraged to be gay or encouraged to not be closeted? You cannot encourage something that is not a choice.
