  That's why it's so important IMO to figure out what the nature is.
Well......It sure isn't PC (politically correct). :o

Okay, that sure sounds right.  Nature is neither good nor not-good.  'Course that brings in my opinion that going along with nature is always good; evading or denying it always bad.  That's why it's so important IMO to figure out what the nature is.

> that which is natural is not always good.

That doesn't sound right and I know I wouldn't want to defend the assertion!  Probably the resolution is that facts ("that which is natural") are neither good nor bad on their own.  It takes a goal creating, valuing consciousness to have that.

context pf, remain in it.  the context was that of human behavior being moral because it was natural.  nature doesn't give a shit about morality.  humans do.

I nominate Charles Manson, the father of the modern #coproach culture in DC!
How about Julian Assange? He seems to have the best informants. ;)

Trump fires FBI Director James Comey

Quote
President Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, ousting the nation's top law enforcement official in the midst of an investigation into whether Trump's campaign had ties to Russia's election meddling.

In a letter to Comey, Trump said the firing was necessary to restore "public trust and confidence" in the FBI. Comey has come under intense scrutiny in recent months for his role in an investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's email practices, including a pair of letters he sent to Congress on the matter in the closing days of last year's election.

Trump made no mention of Comey's role in the Clinton investigation. But the president did assert that Comey informed him "on three separate occasions that I am not under investigation."


Ok.....Step one complete. Awesome! GREAT!

Now onto step two.........

Quote
The White House said the search for a new FBI director was beginning immediately.



Now, what was the definition of insanity again..............?????????

Crazy........

I wonder what carbon copy they will replace him with? ::)

My take on that article is that the author has absolutely no concept of self responsibility. "Personal mistakes are always someone else's fault". This line of thinking is presented front and center with the dog story. Who's fault is it that the buyer got hosed? The buyer or the seller? In my opinion, it's the buyer. Never mind that they bought something that they couldn't afford (they financed.....a dog ??? ), they're the idiots that signed a legally binding contract without knowing all of the details. They did so under their own free will. So, rather than own up to their boneheaded mistake, they blame the seller. That's ridiculous.

The conclusion of the article is even more ridiculous, as it over and over again mentions the right/left paradigm and which side he prefers. There is no right/left. There is only those that wish to control others, and those that don't. ;)

Thatís always the problem with libertarians. They assume that if something is allowed to be done, it should be done.

I can't believe Z-man actually thinks this. If he does, he is a dumb ass. More likely he is just lying. I suspect he gets irritated when libertarians comment on his blog.

Modern libertarians reject all that and embrace a form of utopianism.

Could he have run into some new converts? Evangelism happens in every point of view. There must be some explanation for his collection of straw men.

The corruption is so thorough that they can no longer muster a reason to oppose guys like Dusty Wunderlich, ravaging the economy like locusts.

Funny, I thought it was government ravaging the economy.

Still, says the right prefers "organic social institutions". It's good to hear that Z-man wants to stop throwing pot smokers in jail.  ::)

I own that too. Also the Shorter Oxford in two volumes.
