He doesn't drink alcohol, and seems to genuinely care about people with addiction

That must be why he profits from the addictions of others with Trump Vodka!

13. It's already dead. A

That is not how the vast majority of fur sold is obtained.  There are dedicated facilities that breed and cage animals for their fur, which is removed from the animal while it is still alive.  It is left to bleed to death.

Regulations could prevent that...

The point is that they don't, because it would not be sanitary for a fur industry to rely on removing it from decomposing animals, unless they directly trap the animals from the wild themselves, which raises concerns about sustainability and damage to ecosystems.

A good counter-point might be indigenous groups that live close to the Arctic, which may hunt animals for their fur, and also for their meat.  This is a far cry from the modern fur industry under capitalism, which breeds the animals for this sole purpose, and by design does not take into account the welfare of these animals.

Here's one that was a real pleasure to edit... We are definitely going to try to get King back on! Very informative and enjoyable discussion.

Ep. 0.9(g): Tweed & King on the Economy, Foreign Affairs

Czar Nick Tweed and Vice Czar for Political Economy KING discuss the economic outlook for the United States, particularly as it relates to the retail and commercial real estate sectors. They also dive into the implications of Donald Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin, and his intention to stoke an adversarial tone with China.

All acceptable except for the death penalty, having an affair, and the three that involve being mean to animals.

Agreed.  Obviously, there is more nuance to some of these situations.  Gambling can be unethical, but it is the exploitative enabling which is the true culprit.  Suicide can be a very selfish act, but it does not follow that every instance is immoral.  Even adultery could be acceptable in a scenario where the other partner approves of it, but I assume not for the purpose of this poll.

Animal abuse and capital punishment are always immoral.

Fur used to make clothing is stripped from live animals who spend their lives in confinement, and are left to bleed to death.  Experimentation on laboratory animals is a similar exercise in cruelty and acts as an impediment to medical research nearly as often as it aids.  It is wholly unnecessary to test frivolous cosmetics on animals.  As far as medical research is concerned, results from animal testing always need to be corroborated by human subjects before they can be used to produce pharmaceuticals.  This is not to say that some relevant information has not been gleaned from testing on animals, and it puts us in the ambiguous position of utilizing that research while recognizing that it is of increasingly diminishing value.  Hopefully, it will be rendered entirely obsolete soon enough, and perhaps all that will be left will be the tobacco companies, still pumping cigarette smoke into the lungs of dogs in their ruthless effort to cast doubt on the link between tobacco and cancer.

I just think that it's telling that more of us are bothered by a betrayal of our romantic ideals about marriage than we are about the failure of marriage as a structure for sustaining stable families.

I'm not so sure I see it in a romantic light so much as it is a violation of trust, a form of corruption on the personal level.

Czar Nick Tweed interviews Distinguished Vice Czar for Political Economy (Healthcare) Averroes!

Together they look at the positive accomplishments of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, weighing them against the law's inherent shortcomings, and what is in store for health policy in the United States.

Listen to Averroes discuss Obamacare here!  (Warning: contains profanity.)

Czar Nick Tweed was supposed to be conducting Pt. III of our interview with Distinguished Vice Czar for Political Economy (Healthcare) Averroes, but he got to talking too much. Oh well - we have reframed this as "A Conversation Between Two Berniecrats on a Snowy Day".

We thank the Distinguished Vice Czar for his indefatigable patience.

Almost 40 minutes of commentary on issues including the DNC and New York local/State Politics.  You can listen here.  (Warning: contains profanity.)

This is a perfect illustration of the wider Trump governing strategy at work.

No thought has been given to the lives of these diplomats.  In an unprecedented move, they are scrambling to get residence permits to stay in their posted countries and make arrangements for their children's education.

Putting civil servants in jeopardy is a small price to pay for the opportunity to sell off these posts to whoever has made the right connection with Trump and his tribe of nepotists and sycophants.  We are witnessing the makings of the single most corrupt presidential administration yet seen.  It is no longer feasible to expect that Trump's ineptitude and incompetence will prevent anything nefarious from occurring.  This is precisely the atmosphere in which pay-to-play, blackmail, and bribery will flourish, and the consequences will be far-reaching.

The negative associations that will be caused by the growing list of blunders will long outlive Trump's administration, and will irreparably harm the standing of the United States globally.

Trump was opposed to a recount because the only way he becomes President is with a rigged election.  He stole it like he's stolen everything else in his life.

23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump claims "millions of people" voted illegally. on: November 27, 2016, 08:31:26 pm
The Republicans did not commit voter fraud.  Prove it.

Winfield, I have literally proved it already:

a. Trump himself says millions of ballots were illegally cast.
b. The number of registered voters in Loving County (where Trump allegedly received 89% of the vote) exceeds the population.
c. The number of ballots cast in Loving County exceeds the above-18 citizen population of the county - meaning at least some of those ballots were cast illegally even if they otherwise had 100% voter turnout (which would make them the only county in the entire nation to have done so).

Can you dispute these facts?  Or are you merely going to gloat about how your adulterous candidate is going to appoint Supreme Court justices?

....Yeah in states he lost like NH, VA, and CA and not in states that he won.

Are you suggesting that voter fraud only occurred in these states and not in places like Loving County, Texas where the number of registered voters is higher than the number of recorded residents?
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump claims "millions of people" voted illegally. on: November 27, 2016, 08:18:49 pm
So you are saying in fact  that Trump supporters voted twice. Ok I just wanted to know if that is where you getting at.

How is Trump saying his supporters committed voter fraud? I know you are saying that you yourself are saying that Trump Supporters committed Voter Fraud.

Trump is saying there were millions of illegal ballots cast.  I happened to find some just by comparing the population and the voter turnout in Loving County, Texas, where Trump allegedly received 89% of the vote.  There is more out there - we just have to find it.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump claims "millions of people" voted illegally. on: November 27, 2016, 08:08:30 pm
Yeah Trump really went to Loving County, Texas himself and committed voter fraud since Trump voted in NY(NYC to be exact.)

That's really ridiculous to recount every state that Trump won like Trump would have lost SD, ND, MT, KS, OK, TX, LA, MS, MO, AR, TN, KY, SC, IN, WY, UT to begin with? None of those states would Hillary have won anyway.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that Trump explicitly authorized or orchestrated the fraud in Loving County, or anywhere else.  I'm simply asking why his supporters found it necessary to rig the election.  The numbers don't lie.
So your saying his supporters voted twice in some states that he won? Is that it?

What do you mean, 'is that it?'   This is voter fraud - a very serious issue that Republicans have tirelessly worked to discuss and even prevent.

Trump is looking to have lost nationally by 2.5 million votes, but if the fraud of Loving County is any indication, the REAL number may be much larger.  Millions of illegal votes cast for an illegitimate president.  How can we have any trust in democracy?  Trust in our system of government?  Trump supporters not only committed voter fraud, but the man himself appears to be openly admitting it.
