This may be a really strange question but let me explain. I have an ivory bead necklace with a small ivory cross that was given to me by my great gran before she died. It was a gift given to her and…Continue

I'm sure this has been brought up in the past but here we go. What level of grooming can be considered manly?While I don't particularly care what others think about my grooming habits I am intrigued…Continue

I took the VIA Survey of Character Strengths and Judgement, critical thinking, and open mindedness came as my top strength. This is what they say about it:Thinking things through and examining them…Continue

"I agree that you don't see how. If you give money to someone, it has to come from somewhere. When you give money to those who don't have it, it does not get reinvested, it just gets spent. That is why the majority of lottery winners are…"

"The poor already have low taxes and the negative "Earned Income Tax Credit" tax.  So we'll need to try something else. My suggestion would be lower the barriers to people starting or expanding small business."

Jay D replied to Liam's discussion The inequality of wealth distribution in the group The Great Debate
"Hm yes how do you distribute it is whole different question. An easy way would be by changing taxes. Tax capital gains and lower the tax for the poor or even pay them a negative tax. I also dont buy anymore that the rhich create jobs. Small…"

"I dont see how it would hurt the economy. If you give money to those who dont have much they spend it, this is good for the economy. If you have someone who has a million , he buys 4 houses, rents them out and doesnt need to work anymore, while one…"

"BOTH political sides are going to favor the 1%...simply because that's who butters their bread.  Your $50.00 to the politico of your choice isn't even a rounding error in what Souros or the Kochs pass out to individual candidates."

"Opinion piece inthe Washington Post the other day.  Author opined that most of the inequity seemed to be found in the increase in the top 10% of industries--across the board.  Bankers are only doing exactly what bankers have always done."

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More
