  1. Adfundum liked tecoyah's post in the thread Why aren't Democrat Senators as candidates for president removed from the Senate trial of Trump?.

    Considering that the Jury foreman has publicly stated he is working with the defendant and that he WILL find him innocent, Fairness and recusal seem rather silly and pointless.

    I like your approach to all this--my aim as well. As far as being dry, I was taken by surprise on that because it had rained so much for over a week before I started turning...

    That's true what you say about our ability to understand things. Yet I do struggle with the idea of no cause even though I know that it's a possibility. I can't argue if...

  12. Adfundum liked eschaff's post in the thread Do you think the things that President Trump is being accused of are wrong?.

    It's because Congress has oversight of the executive branch. This is an implied power that has been confirmed by the Supreme Court. The Executive does not have the same power...

  15. Adfundum liked Pag's post in the thread Should Joe and Hunter Biden be forced to testify before the Senate?.

    No they shouln't. I believe Bidens have dirt on themselves but their testimony in Trump's trial is irrelevant. Even if Biden's crimes be proven in the senate that doesn't mean...

  19. Adfundum replied to the thread Using Wood Chips From Tree Companies.

    Thanks. That's my thought too. The dryness is a bit of a shock given the amount of rain we've had recently. I did add some nitrogen and hosed it down.

  26. Adfundum replied to the thread Someone is watching you - so behave yourself.

    I'm not a religious person, but the power of religion as a tool of organization and establishing the "ground rules" is obvious, so I do agree that it is useful to create a god.

    Do you mean "cause" as in a creator? I'm struggling with the idea that something could happen randomly.

    You're right, but at the same time, I understand what he's trying to say. It's more like the evolution of cultures.

    Actually, I think that's what he's saying when he said social Darwinism was a bad use of evolutionary theory.
