Texting Driver Who Slammed Cyclist: I, Like, 'Just Don't Care'

“Could someone who knows more about the Australian civil tort laws explain if the cyclist has grounds to sue? She probably doesn't have much money, but a big judgment could put a permanent lien on her future earnings for the rest of her life, which would give her a constant reminder of her narcissistic idiocy.”

“Autism Speaks has no autistic board members. They only give 4% of their money to services for autistic people (the rest goes to salaries and "cure" research. Not all of us want a cure). They have appropriated the work of autistic advocates without proper credit and refused to take it down after the activist complained.

“Unfortunately, Christopher Tolkein still owns the rights to The Silmarillion and his father's other writings. JRRT sold the rights to The Hobbit and LOTR outright--without a reversion clause, as is common now--so Chris isn't getting anything directly from the films (although the increased sales of the book do impact on his bank balance.) He has refused to even discuss optioning The Silmarillion or History of Middle Earth, or even the non-Middle Earth stories like Farmer Giles of Ham or Smith of Wooton Major.”

“There are other passages in Paul where he endorses the leadership of woman. He commends Prisca, Appolonia, Junia, etc. He also says that women may 'pray' (the inflection implies 'lead congregational prayers' ) or 'prophesy' (what we would call 'preach') as long as they are veiled. He also commends Timothy's mother & grandmother for teaching him the faith.

And who was the first person to proclaim Jesus' return from death? MARY MAGDALINE. "Go & tell my bretheren."”

“A classmate of mine renounced his US citizenship and became naturalized elsewhere, but for different reasons. He went to graduate school abroad, where he met and married a woman of that country; after he got his degree, he took a job there, and after a few years and a couple of kids realized that if he ever returned to the US it would just be as a visitor. Now, renouncing one's citizenship and becoming naturalized elsewhere for those sorts of reasons is one thing; to do so for tax purposes is quite another.”

“Bruce, most of these people ARE naturalized elsewhere.”

“Actually, that is not true. Most of the money that the British spend on the Monarchy involves the upkeep of the Royal residences (less Balmoral & Sandringham, which are the Queen's personal property)--the various palaces, castles, etc.--which as national historical sites they'd have to do anyway. They only pay the Queen and Prince Phillip a regular stipend; other members of the Family get transportation, expenses, etc. when they perform some official duty.

In any case, (a) it comes down to less than the cost of a liter of milk per person per year, and (b) it is less than the money the Crown Estates pay to the State Treasury every year, so the government MAKES money off the monarchy.

I love our Republic for all its flaws, but there are distinct advantages to a constitutional monarchy.”

“"Not everyone who saith unto me 'Lord, Lord' will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but only he who doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Jesus makes it clear that some those who thought themselves part of the 'in group' are going to get a nasty surprise at the end-----and, conversely, that some who thought themselves excluded will get a pleasant one.”

“When I was in Bible college, one of our lessons was on the responsibility of leaders. I no longer have a Bible, but most concordances list the passage we studied under "leader, woe" (King James version). Leaders are warned that they have a heavier burden and what they say/do will be sternly evaluated because they are in leadership.

The Bible has so much admonishment for believers, only those who are ignorant would dare bash others over the head with it.”

“By all accounts, Prince Harry is a perfectly nice young man. He served his country honorably in Afghanistan; yes, the LasVegas incident is a bit of a blot, but really, that's the sort of thing that might happen to anyone. (All of us did some things that age we wouldn't want generally known--but when you are a Prince of Great Britain, everyone is watching you.)

He didn't ask to be born into a royal family, and even if he were to renounce his titles and give out that he just wanted to be known as "Hank Windsor", is there any island our mountaintop remote enough that he could escape to and not have the papparazi hounding him?”

“Generally speaking the idea of having teachers in hospitals so that children hospitalized long term don't loose too much schooling is a good one. The Shriners, for example, and St. Judes, do this. But it is not always appropriate, and I don't think it was here.”
