Sorry, having a hard time linking but wanted to share the news.

Thou shalt not commit logical fallacies

I just found a wonderful website to share. It doesn't cover all logical fallacies but does have many. Click on individual icons to get the definition and example for FREE.

ETA, you can buy a poster, but if you do as I wrote, "click on individual icons", you get the information for free.

PSA. REPUB primary stuff gets posted in GD. GDP is for DEMOCRATIC primary stuff.

Last night Hosts locked 18 threads in GDP that were about the Republican Primary for being in the wrong forum. To avoid hurt feelings about threads being locked, and to avoid overworking DUers who volunteer as Hosts, please read the following notice and do the best you can to post in the right forum. This notice shows up during the posting a new thread process in GD and GDP.

GDP is for DEMOCRATIC primary stuff. GD is for the remainder, including REPUBLICAN primary stuff, policies and other stuff.

Thank you

Last night I got the jury request bug also

No matter which link I clicked, it said "sorry that jury is full....etc" and when I refreshed it asked again. I finally ignored it and after a while it went away.

Thanks for letting us play here last night and mock the repub "debate".

No reply needed, just wanted to give a bit more on the recent jury request bug for Elad. Thanks.

I am SO FUCKING TIRED of bigotry and people hurting others

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



People are people, different from each other in so many ways, alike in so many ways. Just. Be. Decent. Towards. Each. Other.

It is that simple.

Why should someone who is transgender not use the facilities they identify with?

I am writing she/he and girls/boys, please put the genders together when you read. Perhaps "identified gender:people of the same identified gender" would be more accurate, but it seemed clumsy to write.

I sincerely do not understand the reasoning behind not allowing a person to use the facility (restroom, locker room) that they identify with.

Also, I will be on and off DU for a couple days at random times so may not be able to answer/reply quickly.

ETA, thank you for all the replies and votes. The proper answer is they should use the facilities they identify with.

Have you ever worked with someone who refused to do part of their legal job due to religious objecti

objections? Did their religion or morality related to religious belief get in the way of their job? What did you do, how was it dealt with?

30 years ago I worked with a nurse who refused to give people dying on hospice care narcotics because it was against her ethical standards to give drugs someone would get addicted to. Pointing out that they were dying, soon, didn't matter because she just could not do it, morally. She also could not care for a person who was a failed suicide because suicide is a sin and she could not support anyone who did that as they were sinners going to hell. Yes, living with a face half blown off and suffering sneers from her were not enough, the person was a sinner headed straight for hell. Eventually.

The director of nurses tried working with this nurse to get her patients that didn't offend her morality or religion. The only good thing was this nurse did not try to force the rest of us to work and believe like she did. Eventually she quit nursing, discovering that having an open mind was a bit necessary while working with people.

Since then I have worked with many people, some of whom held very strong religious beliefs, some very strong moral beliefs, some lacking either or both. But none as blatant as the first one I mentioned. That was a bit odd.

How about you?
