  1. Parkland, FL High School Shooting

    Well, instead of focusing on the extremist view to lose all freedoms to bear arms, why don't we discuss what we could do. Based on the actual text of the 2nd Amendment: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.", one idea I've had is to split the well regulated militia and the individual right. For example, we could only allow multiple shot weapons to those who are part of a well regulated militia, with the militia bearing some legal responsibility for the acts performed by their members. And separately, only allow individuals to own weapons that have to be reloaded after every shot (or every 2 or 3 shots). My thinking is that the militia would house the semi- and full-auto weapons with a firing range and have some system for signing them in and out, and since individuals won't have weapons that can cause mass shootings, it would at least reduce the number that are happening. And if someone is signing a more deadly weapon out of an armory, then perhaps someone can notice their behavior and either prevent release of the weapon or contact the authorities. It's far from a fool-proof idea, but I think it's a start.
  2. Freaking Airlines

    I've changed my tickets a bunch of times on Southwest, they only charge you the price difference in the tickets.
  3. Tight End Voting Thread

    It was me. I didn't read the topic carefully and thought it said vote for one of two. EDIT: I figured out I could change my vote, so it's all even again.
  4. Poll: Scientific consensus

    The bolded part isn't true. As some other posts mentioned, gene editing/splicing can do things that aren't possible in breeding like combined genes across species.
  5. Poll: Scientific consensus

    Correct. But there are others reasons to be cautious. In addition to the patent/legal issues, there's unintended consequences like potentially wiping out most plant life on earth: The Deadly Genetically Engineered Bacteria that Almost Got Away: A Cautionary Tale
  6. Poll: Scientific consensus

    No, no, no. GMO's are NOT the same as breeding. GMO's have been modified using genetic engineering. Wikipedia: GMO's are typically combinations of genes from different species.
  7. Poll: Scientific consensus

    Depends on what you're using as a comparison. If you're talking about farmers who were already using lots of pesticides, then the Roundup-ready and similar did reduce pesticide use slightly. But if you're looking at farmers who were using integrated pest management (so much less pesticides), then it drove the use up a lot.
  8. Trump's Tax Plan

    Kimberly-Clark, maker of Kleenex and Huggies, says tax bill helps fund plan that includes more than 5,000 layoffs
  9. Poll: Scientific consensus

    Neither of the bolded things are GMO. Those were accomplished with regular plant breeding techniques that humans have employed for thousands of years. Also, I'm against GMO's because of how they can be patented and the legal issues around harvesting your own GMO seeds, not because of their safety. I try not to buy GMO in a tiny attempt to put those companies out of business.
  10. 9-2 his first year, but even Devaney went 6-4 in both year 6 and 7. Correct. For those that don't think 6-6 is acceptable, what do you propose we do if the Huskers go 6-6?
  11. Trump Domestic Policy - Budgets, etc

    Nothing like following up nearly two decades (and counting) worth of war veterans with cuts to the VA. Republican (and Democrat) politicians who sign this are unpatriotic cowards.
  12. Dems Rebuild

    Hey, the tax cut bill was unpopular, so the Dems will run against that, right? Right?
  13. Trump Domestic Policy - Budgets, etc

    That's a great step in the right direction for helping the most vulnerable children.
  14. UNL White Nationalist

    Great find. Everyone should read this.
