I appreciate it. They are good classes, but one of them (Special Topics in Philosophy of Science: Scientific Practice) really pushes my current skill level.

That makes my brain hurt just thinking about it.

It is a split graduate/postgraduate/undergraduate course, so a very broad range of experience levels.

Thank you, Hillary Clinton. Thank you for ­reminding America about the importance of Donald Trump’s victory and of the awful consequences if you had won.

the jubilation among Democrats and their media handmaidens reveals how their hatred for Trump and his supporters overshadows any concern for ­national security. The ruling that the government showed “no evidence” that the travel ban would prevent terrorism is preposterous and should alarm every American.

trump has proposed preserving federal payments to the group if it discontinues providing abortions.

According to Planned Parenthood, it receives about $500 million annually in federal funding. This money  supposedly only is used to pay for women’s health services said the organization pp

My thoughts on it are this neo-nazi group loves the free commercial Atlantic has written about them, now they have that free commercial here. Your question is accusatory and full of bs. I believe your doing exactly as Atlantic intended which was to go out and judge or accuse Trump supporters. No Trump defender here supports neo-nazis groups. But no Trump defender should have to answer your accusatory judgemental question. Ask the neo-nazi defenders on Phatmass instead. And the election is over can election threads be over too, please?

The funny thing here is how quickly KoC would start making excuses for any actual Nazi regime that came to power "Oh boy, here come the PC crybabies getting hysterical"

Offensive for the sake of being offensive, essentially trolling, is a far cry from actual racism though. I think there is a fair argument to be made that even some of the racism in the alt-right is just particularly vulgar trolling. Personally I think that the racist fringe of the alt-right, while certainly present, is not as widespread as some would have us believe. I am open to being proven wrong though. I just want to see more than opinion pieces.

At the same time, Yiannopoulos seems to be the perfect example of a provocateur. I have not read the article, but is it a possibility that his support for that guy (with whom I am also not familiar) can be qualified in that manner? 

I no longer agree with November Nihil. The more I have paid attention, the more I think that the racist element of the alt-right is likely both inherent/necessary, and intentional, and I find Yiannopolous incredibly distasteful. I did not know much about him until recently. The inherent nationalism around which the alt-right is based seems to be a racialistic, even eugenic sort, and I do not think that has a place in civil society.

I would still say that it is not necessarily the case that every single person associated with the alt-right is racist, but I think that the 'movement' as a whole does point in that direction. I do not know where people like Steve Bannon fall on that continuum, and I believe we acknowledged that in the earlier pages of this thread.

It took nearly nine months to take action, but the Trump administration will finally act on its promise to undo the HHS contraception mandate and protect religious liberty.

However, as the New York Times reports, the administration will propose a more incremental approach to its reversal by expanding the existing exemptions to include “moral convictions” as well as “religious beliefs.”

The new rules will take effect immediately:
