    OK, I'll play along.

    Where is the "Humanist" rule book that all your ascribe to? Can we have a peek to what you evangelize?

    That's your old motto. Still waiting on an explanation as to what feral actually means.

    Golly, wish you'd leave me alone on that.

    You may remember I did not come up with that but copied it. I did a short search, but didn't find the original where I found it.

    Want an example?

    I didn't post this, but you asked for it.

    EBT benefit card glitch sparks Walmart shopping sprees in Louisiana

    The Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system allows recipients of government food stamps to purchase goods using a digital card with a set spending limit, but for a few hours over the weekend, that limit disappeared for many users visiting Walmart stores in Louisiana.

    Walmart and local police in Springhill and Mansfield confirmed to CBS affiliate KSLA that officers were called into the stores to help maintain order Saturday as shoppers swept through the aisles at two stores and bought as much as they could carry.


    Welcome to our cradle to grave welfare state.

    Re: Humanism :

    think for themselves about what is right and wrong, based on reason and respect for others.

    Find meaning, beauty and joy in the one life we have, without the need for an afterlife.

    Look to science instead of religion as the best way to discover and understand the world.

    Believe people can use empathy and compassion to make the world a better place for everyone.
    I wonder how that understanding of self goes down in really poor countries. It sounds like a very middle class view to me.

    Nope. Not until you answer. & I see it's catching on, there's a real angry guy on my local blog website who uses it quite a bit. I get on him too.
