Once again, "death with dignity" is used to mean "committing suicide." I'm beyond tired of that phrasing and the way the assisted suicide movement pushes the idea that there can be no dignity in human more »

I have taken care of two family members through the process of natural death. That's why I think we need better palliative care and more respect for the dying, but we shouldn't throw assisted suicide more »

Why do we most need to win their good opinion? What does that get us? The Tsarnaev family was showered with benefits and assistance. They repaid us by murdering and maiming people. Reducing security i more »

One part that I find especially galling is the fact that the influx of the wealthier people puts more strain on the less well-off locals, as property taxes go up. I don't have a solution to the proble more »

Please note that you're the one who brought race into the discussion. But I have to differ with you even on the facts -- the Tsarnaevs are white. Not only do they obviously look white, they actually c more »

The point was not that the welfare benefits explain the outcome. The point was that the Tsarnaevs were given a warm welcome in this country and showered with benefits to the tune of about $100,000 wor more »

Your description of what is currently happening in the ME is exactly right. In Syria, ancient Christian communities are being violently obliterated. In Malaysia, it is now *against the law* for Christ more »

I'm curious -- where did you go to get information about Islam? And if you think the radicals have no case -- you think that their arguments are not well-founded in terms of Islamic doctrine and Islam more »

Kudos to you for saying what needs to be said. It's ridiculous that more feminists aren't speaking out about this travesty. A gang of thugs like CAIR triumphed over a woman who speaks up for women and more »

You do realize, I hope, that nothing you have said refutes anything Mr Jacoby said about why feminists should be outraged. more »

Interesting, just to see the honest descriptions of people's lives. But I was struck by one sentence: "Itâs fuzzy to ascribe cultural shifts like women out-earning men or the increase in fathers vac more »

As near as I can tell, exiting the EU should be top priority for the UK if it wants to survive. But I don't live there and no one has asked my opinion.

That is a scurrilous slander. I defy you to present any proof that normative Orthodox Judaism has any teaching requiring believers to kill nonbelievers. I think you may be thinking of the Qur'an (whic more »

Israel is not a theocracy. The fact that Israel is a Jewish state simply means that it is the homeland for the ethnic-national group, the Jewish People. To put it another way, Israel is the homeland f more »

The part I don't get is why we would *want* to intervene on the side of the Islamists. Why are we on the same side as Al Qaeda in Syria and Libya? That's the part that is never adequately explained.

Only at the end of the article do we get a hint of what started things going in the CAR: Muslim attacks on Christians and a Muslim "rebel government" that overthrew the legitimate government and tried more »

It's amazing that a piece on the disaster in Syria fails to mention the Islamist slaughter of the indigenous Christians even once. The FSA -- the motley crew of rebels, jihadists and Al Qaeda members more »

The fees that JStor charges seem ridiculous. Why should it cost $30 or more to read a paper published in an academic journal? The money is most definitely not going to the academics who wrote the arti more »

Wow. Rape, suicide, tongue cut out, depression, starvation, syphillis -- all of this added together is the best of what's available for young people this year? I seem to remember reading very differen more »

Some real public debate would be good. When the ballot measure came up, I emailed the office of the campaign to see if someone could answer a few questions I had that arose from experiences I'd had wh more »

Some people who are not like us actually hate our guts and plan to kill people. You are aware of that, aren't you?

Did you and your girlfriend happen to be chemical engineers from countries that have produced an inordinate number of terrorists?

Muslims went out late at night to party? Maybe, but it sounds unusual.
Posted 05/15/2013 09:57:04 EDT
Actually, many jihadis do hate "our freedom" -- that is, they detest democracy and believe that it's evil and idolatrous because it means "bowing down" to man-made laws (that is, acting like civilized more »
