What is with the fairness act Obama tried passing in 2005?

So, I heard of this plan he's tried to pass, where radio stations all the public things like that would have to be liberal. I'm not a "republican" and i'm definately not a "democrat" i'm undecided i'm just wondering if you disagree or think this is a little too dramatic that he's trying to do a socialist action by controlling radio stations etc. Thankyou....

Perhaps my fellow countrymen and women (UK) if you by chance are a smoker like myself or if you by chance stumble across a new pack of Cigs in your travels, you will see that the government has decided oh so wisely to pass another law against us, and put pictures on the back of packs to remind us of the hellish trouble we will get in if we continue smoking, as if we didn't know already, and are passing another law that cigarettes must be served under the counter to stop i quote "impulsive" buyin...

Anywise I think Coldplay ripped of the song If "I Could Fly" with their "Viva La Vida". Joe Satriani is suing Coldplay for this. Here are my reasons. 1) has the same harmony 2) has the same rhythm 3) this isn't the first time Coldplay has been caught 4) Joe Satriani has a degree in musical theory and knows a lot on the composition of music (and...

"As we enter the new millennium, the question is not whether we should fully reject or wholeheartedly embrace globalization. Instead the question is whether the disparate benefits and impacts of globalization can be reordered so that our trade agreements and labor law policies no longer serve to primarily benefit corporations at the expense of workers and communities in the U.S. and around the globe." It is because the Employee Free Choice Act can answer the question that Kate Bronfenbrenner...

Determinism and free will completely contradict each other and cannot be both true simultaneously.

Goni
Nail_Bat

Determinism is defined as the philosophical doctrine that every state of affairs, including every human event, act, and decision is the inevitable consequence of antecedent states of affairs.
