    I had to explain this sort of thing to friends and family. When you smell a fart, you are smelling a gas. You can't stop a gas with less than an almost impermeable barrier. Helium will even leak through a latex balloon but not so much through a...

    Where I work we don't have to mask in work areas if we can social distance even inside and there rules are set by NASA, it is their building. You seem to be under the influence of some poor rule makers. Some Governors in mostly rural states are...

    It was always right and morally acceptable to wear a mask. It is not right to force people to wear mask when there is no benefit. More people now believe it is a benefit to wear a mask so I was pointing out the political calculus for requiring...

    Yes, we have to read multiple sources to even get close to the truth. Polls are less misleading if you know exactly how the questions were worded. I don't know what you do for work but don't you think you should wear a mask at work? The...

    That is why I picked a story about the FOX News Poll, thinking you might find it more credible than a NY Times, Pew or Reuters poll. I was at the local Walmart yesterday in a suburb in Red State (Louisiana) more than half the customers and all...

    Have you thought about it? You should know the answer. Because the people want fast food and junk and the companies that make them and the business owners who sell them vote and give money to politicians. Go ahead, don't wear a mask and make...

    You think we should execute people who have not been and probably can't be convicted due to a lack of evidence. Tim

    Again you don't read the question. Some sins are certainly deserving of death but should Christians ever put a person to death. What do you think Jesus would say about Christians carrying out a death sentence?" Is the legal execution of an...

    I oppose abortion but I don't support making more illegal than it already is. Abortion is restricted, regulated and in some case illegal. Would you make all abortions illegal? Exactly how would you change current law? Would you compromise and...

    I think you have the wording wrong. In the case in question you can be sure because of the politics of the moment, charges would be filed with maybe even steep bail. Politics being what they are maybe they could get a lot of financial support so...
