It is said that in a democratic society, you get the government you deserve. What the fuck have you guys been doing to wind up with a choice between Hillary and Trump? Nobody deserves that.

A lot of the difference you feel between those bikes on the track has to do with the heavier rotating mass and less to do with the actually difference in overall weight. Heavier rims, tires & crank make a big difference in trying to flick a bike ... more »

Artists and copyright holders are protected differently under the law. If you haven't picked up on that yet, then I have neither the time nor the crayons to explain it further. If you disagree with the law, then congratulations. You're officially offended. ... more »

I'm not splitting hairs, I'm showing you the legal reasoning behind the judges decision. I'm just explaining how the judge came to his decision under the guidelines of the law. People discriminate all the time. The discussion we were having is not what ... more »

I'm just sitting here at home unarmed with the doors unlocked. I feel perfectly safe. I'll feel safe flying to Vegas next week and I'll feel safe down at the pub tonight. We're safer than we've ever been comparatively. But I've also seen the US news. ... more »

Preface: You're right, you don't and yes it does. Firstly: So your method of discrimination is better? Or worse? Or just different. Should the bakery hire a doorman and/or a maître d? A bouncer or a maître d still can't stand at the door and turn people ... more »

In one instance no action needs to be taken to learn the source of the item. It's visibly or audibly apparent. For the cake, someone must ask who provided it. Now if the cake had the cake shop's logo on it it would be more easily identifiable, but the ... more »

As the owner of a business you CANNOT decide who can and cannot buy from you based on your or their religious beliefs. As a business owner you CAN decide who to sell to if it's for promotional or commercial use and your name/voice/trademark is attached ... more »

Are you required to have a license to serve that baker's cake to a crowd as entertainment? It's all about copyright protection for an artist. A baker is not considered an artist and their work is not covered by any copyright protection. Considering that ... more »

I think you misunderstand the way a blanket license works and also what a moot point means. What follows below has no relation to the statement above. If a home baker never wants to open a storefront and get a license to do business in a town/city, then ... more »

It's a moot point because they could just buy the blanket licenses that toolmaker mentioned and be able to do it anyway. As long as they have a valid license they can play the song all they want. If they had no license to do it, then they're breaking ... more »

The entertainment business is about copyright and ownership of the song/media in question. If you're playing music for a crowd you have to have the broadcast rights to it. They can't use the opening intro for Monday night football as their walk on theme ... more »

Some recent Syrian refugees opened up their home to take in people fleeing the fires in Fort McMurray. I thought that was pretty nice of them. They don't have much, but they'll share what they have with those in need. Those..... bastards!

Funny how people can twist statistics to fit their own agenda. Kansas' unemployment rate has gone down at the same rate as the national rate and if you compare them to other states who didn't institute the same work clause you'd find no causal effect ... more »
