About Me:A lover of many things, and a happy, uncomplicated person at heart (I hope).
Activities:My hobbies are: all types of chess, from Standard, to Thai, Burmese, Chinese, and Shogi, to variants on Standard like Crazyhouse, Horde, and Bughouse. I"m on Chess.com and Lichess, if you are up for a game. I love card games, from semi-modern ones like Canasta and Gin Rummy, to modern ones like MTG, to ancient ones like Slovenian Tarock (I dare you, look it up). I also love languages, though I have no talent in studying them: Hebrew and Latin are my chief predilections. I love history, and give special attention to grand works that map the trajectories of civilizations. I love socializing, and even like to play some sports, which I am again bad at.
Beliefs:That there exists some benovelent omnipotent and omniscient being; what that being is like or comprised of is really none of our concern; that there"s something after this life, but even if there isn"t, it"s not anything to worry about in this life; that the Classic Liberalism that is the greatest product of Western thought is the best system yet created for the purposes of human well-being; that capitalism has been the tool which Classic Liberalism has used to better the world"s lot; and much more along those lines. :)
Books:The Source. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Assassini Utz
Movies:Inception The Godfather
Music:I have a love of the Baroque period, especially Bach and Vivaldi. From their beautiful violin concerti to the spritzy Cappricio in Bach"s sixth movement in the Partita no.2 in c minor, I love almost all of it. I also have some liking for modern pop, especially (how weird I am) Eastern European pop.
Quotes:Festina Lente - Augustus Caesar

Abortion for socio-economic reasons

The format will be Round 1: Initial arguments, Round 2: rebuttal and defense, Rounds 3 & 4 more of the same, and Round 5 closing arguments. We"ll be arguing about abortions that are carried out for socio-economic reasons. This is sensible since around 98.3% of all abortions are undergone for purely socio-economic reasons, naught to do with health, rape, incest, etc. (this from official data taken from surveys done by state agencies and the Alan Guttmacher Institute) So, I will base my argu...

Does it destroy an important part of history if directors alter films from the original release?

In the original theatrical release of E.T. the authorities are brandishing shotguns, not toting radios. Likewise in its original form the mos eisley canteena scene Han shot first. Should Stephen Spielberg, and most especially George Lucas, who I remind you headed up the movement to stop the colorization of classical films, be allowed to alter their own films if it means the total loss of the film in its original form....

tax cuts

I am for tax cuts because the money paid to the US is not necessarily making the best of what american taxpayers are giving them such as using the money for trials that aren't need, or sending money to welfare and people who are to lazy to get jobs. the money should be going to things that matter such as raising military budgets and defense budgets. the money should also start being saved to pay off the great deficit so that we can stop going further into debt. another reason that tax cuts would...
