“In the 50 years since the Voting Rights Act became law, a small group of Republican activists has systematically dismantled almost all of its protections.”

What exactly have they fixed? MS is still last why give them more chances?

Objective Science

“‘When the science is inconvenient, when the facts don’t match up with the ideology, they are cast aside.”

So charged Sen. Barack Obama in a Planned Parenthood speech in 2007. The line was a dig at George W. Bush for his approach to abortion and reproductive rights. Eighteen months later, the new president repeated his snipe in his inaugural vow to “restore science to its rightful place.”

Today President Obama is the one finding the science inconvenient. In the past, the president hasn’t hesitated to weigh in on other controversies while they were in progress—from an altercation between a black Harvard professor and a local white cop to more recent comments about the rape allegations against Bill Cosby. Suddenly, however, he has nothing to say about two secretly recorded videos that include one Planned Parenthood doctor talking about a “less crunchy” abortion technique that would leave fetal organs intact for harvesting.”

Morals and ethics have a difficult time with reality. When feelings are the sole guide to humans we do not survive because nature has no morals. At some point values need to accept reality and the limits they serve.

Recycling

“Shoppers who bring their own bags to the grocery store tend to splurge on more junk food, according to a new study published in the Journal of Marketing.”
==========
Everything is not a simple multiple choice problem like our schools are teaching. The world goes on cause and effect as you have heard of butyl effect? The very smallest changes can have very big differences. The simple concept of recycling is at first glance a good idea but when you dig into the details it gets very complicated and many recycle projects end up wasting more than they save. The best solution is nature and live in the means of nature. The reality is 7 billion people do not live in the means of nature. I doubt more than 2 billion people on earth can live a middle class life on what nature recycles.

Obesity

“The health law requires insurers to pay for nutrition and obesity screening, and some doctors see a new business opportunity.”

Who pays the high cost since most people today are obese? Do we need doctors telling us how to eat right? Billions are spent on marketing to encourage us to eat wrong and become obese. Eating is a comfort like drugs it masks the reasons for feeling bad. The problem is much greater than the doctor abilities to get us to change. it is all about money and how to get you to spend and go into debt. Those that do not have an eating problem are taxed by the insurance for their good eating behaviors. Do you see a problem with the health care law?
