I'm sorry but I'm from the UK and if someone offered to help a mother with a crying child I wouldn't presume they were a paedophile. Dont let the Sun and the Daily Mail warp your mind. This is a stranger, and a father offering his time out of kindness. If you feel awkward retuning the wave of a child that's on you, nobody else.

She's a private citizen. She can lend money to whoever she wants. I think it's stupid to prioritize lending to people based on skin color instead of merit. But she has every right to do it. If white men truly have better proposals they should be able to find funding from another investor. We live in a capitalist society. People want to make money, and if you can give a positive return on investment from a loan someone will lend to you, regardless of your skin color.

This is basically the reverse argument of black people not being approved for loans from the bank. If banks are truly being bigots, and denying black people loans based on their skin color someone in a capitalist society is going to want to lend to all these qualified black applicants money.

If she wants to be sexist and racist by discriminating based on sex and race, she has every right to be. I just don't feel comfortable donating to sexists or racists, and won't donate to the Gates Foundation while these practices are continuing.

The liberal who made this criticizes and attacks conservatives, and yet somehow also claims that liberals seek to unite. The irony.

Do you really think the majority of conservatives are racist?

E: I can see a lot of people legitimately think conservatism is synonymous with racism. That's very depressing as a conservative.

The majority of conservatives are NOT racist, but the majority of racist are conservatives. You can't deny that.

You have to ask yourself...... Why?

You're purporting that as a fact and asking me to justify your statement. I can't justify your position for you. What is the evidence you used to arrive at this conclusion?

Since I have personal experience with it, I would have to see something stronger than that.

Over time, people who smoke a lot of weed tend to experience personality problems. This is why many of them discard it after a decade or two.

Nope, but you need to come up with a more compelling case than a limited study.

No I don't. I point blank asked you what you would need to prove it, and you said anecdotal evidence is more important to you. You're close minded. Keep it shut, and fuck off. Replying to you is a waste of my energy.

Gay couples can't be "married" because they're not raising kids

No, because they are unable to have children in the traditional two-parent union with one of each sex as mandated by biology.

see more

So the element defining "marriage" from your perspective isn't couple being a support system for each other and raising kids (biological or adopted). It's all of that, but exclusively a man and a woman. It doesn't seem to matter that the gay marriage could have all the elements of the straight marriage. You just need people to have different genitalia to feel comfortable with someone else's marriage yourself.

I'll bold the questions in my last comment since you didn't answer any of the ones I asked. But you don't need to reply if you don't want. It seems you've got a perspective that the only beneficial union is between opposite sexes which is rooted beyond any logical basis.

Children need both for a healthy home, as is the case in biology.

In nature, homosexuals do not reproduce or adopt.

There is a reason for our continuation of this tendency.

You're looping dude. Gay people can't be married because they don't have children (not a requirement for marriage btw). You won't entertain a possibility where gay people have children. Therefore they can't be married.

You're talking past me at this point and not answering for the second time that I've posted them. I'm not going to keep shifting arguments with you. Answer the questions or this discussion is pointless.

Her twitter has been weird and into crazy-conspiracy land for a couple years now, seemingly just gets worse rather than better.

Definitely doesn't help that the media sources she follows pushes a very conspiracy ridden political narrative that our Presidents seems to validate more and more.

Not trying to dive into the politics of it, just clear from the stuff she posts here. Looks like an edgy /pol/ member's twitter than a successful actress who ran a popular sitcom.

I mean even CNN is conspiratorial (e.g Trump is blackmailed by russia because of pee tape). It's a really weird time in American society right now.

E: I think my criticism is fair. Not being able to recognize that CNN has biases like FOX has biases is how you end up with a Trump. Keep saying it's only the Right that's the problem though. I don't give a fuck.

Not quite $70M, but $42M is still a large number and definitely larger than even Trump's estimates of the Mueller investigation. Hopefully, expenditures for both go down.

Hi, I’m not American and I guess our educational system is a tad different, but how come you’ve got such a wide range of courses?

Ours are all concentrated in one field at university.

see more

There is a core set of courses you need to take that is concentrated in one field called a "Major" at US universities. The major accounts for roughly 1/3 to 1/2 of all courses you take.

However, the other 2/3 to 1/2 are general requirements and electives. General requirements are things that the university feels every student should have some foundational knowledge about (e.g. 1 year of math, 2 years of foreign language, etc.). The electives are just courses that you're interested in studying.

A lot of people in the US go into the university without being sure what they want their major to be. So they use the elective courses to learn about various fields and determine if it might be a good choice for a future career.

Huh. So in the start it’s just a lot like high school, where you have a concentration but also a lot of electives and obligatory courses?

I guess it’s pretty nice to let people get a feel for different careers. How long time does it take to get a bachelor then? Over here we just start directly on our major, and then we only have courses within that subject.

Also, I’ve been looking a bit at American masters/phd programs (currently a bsc student) and it seems that you can apply for a course without having a bachelor in that subject? Like a masters in economy doesn’t require a bachelor in economy? Is that correct?

We have quite strict requirements on which courses are needed to be accepted into a certain degree, down to the exact courses that are needed, so it can be quite troublesome to study your masters at another university.

Also, what is premed? Here we just go straight from high school to medicine.

Thank you for the long response!

No problem!

So in the start it’s just a lot like high school, where you have a concentration but also a lot of electives and obligatory courses?

So for high school the course selection was more restrictive. You didn't really have as much flexibility in what you could take (at least in my experience). There were "honors" or "advanced placement" courses which were more rigorous. But you could also take "normal" courses on the same subjects. Taking the more rigorous coursework would look better when you applied to universities. No "majors" exist for high schools. You had some flexibility in what courses you took, but there were no majors. For example, you'd take 7 courses. 2 were electives. So you could sign up for statistics if you wanted to take an additional math course or another language course. However, no designation of specialization was rewarded on your high school diploma.

How long time does it take to get a bachelor then?

4 to 5 years

it seems that you can apply for a course without having a bachelor in that subject? Like a masters in economy doesn’t require a bachelor in economy? Is that correct?

Yeah, so it's kind of interesting. Some schools require you to have a bachelor's degree in the subject you're pursuing your masters. However, other programs may just require you to have some minimum level of coursework, which they feel will allow you to keep up with the material.

Other's may not require any specific bachelor's degree. For example, a MBA (i.e. master's in business administration) just requires you have a bachelor's degree at many institutions.

We have quite strict requirements on which courses are needed to be accepted into a certain degree, down to the exact courses that are needed, so it can be quite troublesome to study your masters at another university.

So here we're less strict about that. Masters requirements may vary from university to university. You'll likely have many overlapping topics between different programs, but you won't necessarily be taking all the same courses. A masters could be used to increase your knowledge base in the same field as your bachelors. However, it could also be a totally separate field, which could help you further your career. For example, I have a friend that majored in economics. He is obtaining a masters in statistics in the hopes this will make him more attractive to employers.

Also, what is premed? Here we just go straight from high school to medicine.

"premed" is this loose term that people use to indicate they're pre-medical. It means they intend to go into medicine and are currently obtaining their bachelors. It doesn't specify what your bachelors degree will be. You could obtain a bachelor's in anything from music to biochemistry as long as you complete the minimum coursework to apply (1 year bio, 1 year general chemistry, 1 year organic chemistry, 1 semester biochemistry, 1 year physics). Some medical schools require extra courses like cell bio and genetics to apply, but not all of them do. Premed just means you're hoping to attend a graduate medical school program though.

The US medical school system doesn't let people go straight from high school. It's actually a really drawn out process. You have to get a bachelors (4 years) then apply to medical school. Once you go to Medical schools(4 years) you need to apply to residencies. A residency is where you get to learn a specialty(e.g. dermatology, radiology, family medicine, etc.). Residency programs vary in length (3 to 7 years) based on your specialty.

So if I know I want to be a doctor when I graduate high school at the age of 18. I need to get a bachelors (4 years), an MD (4 years), and then attend a residency program (3 to 7 years). Meaning I'm 29 to 33 years old when I'm finally able to practice medicine in the US.
