Misleading title. It should read:

Trump administration prepares to release Central American migrants into prison buses where they will remain imprisoned while transported to fill up jail's and detention centers 'across the entire nation'

Eugenics is the philosophy of genetic selection. Deciding which train are desirable. Deciding winners, and losers.
Who will get to decide who loses, etc.?

The overwhelming moral majority rejects these ideas and those who espouse them. Eugenicists do not publically announce their views for good reason.

It's the opposite of guilt by association. I'm suggesting people will avoid association with Eugenicists.
Eugenics is shunned in many circles.

Eugenicists want to be happy and healthy, and want those they care about to be happy and healthy.

So you're an Eugenics apologist?

The Nazi eugenics crimes were the most egregious.
Medical experimentation on humans.
Ethnic cleansing.

You're not going to achieve your goals in life if this is how you see things. Why should it matter if your enemy wants something that you also want?

Unlike yourself, I don't want want what the eugenicists want.

To say that people who get abortions are engaging in eugenics comes across as a little crazy.

Suggesting that I said this is crazy. Regardless, the primary historical group pressing for abortion rights was the eugenics movement.

It's like saying if atheists knew breakfast cereal had religious roots, they would stop eating Corn Flakes. It makes no sense.

Here's something that doesn't make sense: Abortion analogies that involve atheists views and breakfast cereals.

I assume you're a guy, "Tom", and I'll go a step further an assume you're not looking to have any children beyond any you already have, and so you really don't have much "skin in the game", your position on abortion is whimsical, and of little consequence.

You shouldn't make assumptions about me.

I'm a recently engaged hermaphrodite, who's planning on starting a family.
I would like up have 3 daughters, and a son.

What if everyone took responsibility for themselves and refused to sign up for Obamacare instead of relying on the government?

You kind of put a date on this generated rant with this comment.

Exactly, this.

He was awarded a lifetime raise.

I look at is as more of a change for experienced redditors who do use those links, to save them a click.

It's interesting that you state it like that, because it's probably overlooked by new/infrequent users.

Reddit's decision to minimize that icon button was probably an intentional pre-filtering of content.
Improved content availability is a positive feature, so this idea is a net positive change (+).

Good call!

Do users frequently use this sorting feature?

Presenting all of the options can be useful to severely inexperienced netizens, but it may appear nominally more cluttered.

Especially, if the screen is already busy.

Sometimes, less is more.

Conversely, each and every non-submission page on this site has dozens of links, so what's a couple more links going to hurt.

Overall, no prob.
If you like the change, then go for it.

You've made some interesting claims. I just figured you may have an interest in providing evidence.

  • it was common for a woman to conceive a child every year until menopause set in.
  • The "pill" was originally developed as a pill for men. It was decided to test them on women because men were very bad at tolerating them.

They first claim was particularly interesting.

Is this a predictable consequence of that anti-Sharia law bullshit?

If women want to cover their face then that's fine. Who cares...?

Facial recognition hacks; that's who. They are watching...

Also, did anyone watch the video below it? It's messed up, and indirectly relevant.

Physical removal is removed for advocating violence

Is advocating violence banned speech on Saidit?

I'm not pro-violence, but I'm not a pacifist either.

Free speech is only a value, if it's supported for speech that one despises.

It's unfortunate that John Fugelsang is criticizing people for the most virtuous of their pro-positions.

I somehow doubt that he is/was aware of the eugenics movement's involvement in the pro-choice movement.

Roll with the punches. Don't change your ethical stance just because Hitler agrees with you.

My moral compass is true as ever. Being convinced of taking the right stance; means that one has been convinced.

New info was brought to my attention, which caused me to reconsider my position on this sensitive issue.

I was an ardent pro-choice supporter. At the time, I was horrified to realize that I had been working for the enemy's interests.

I completely understand why people choose to support pro-choice laws. The overwhelming majority of people who support pro-choice are morally and ethically virtuous individuals. This is a fact.

However, I'm close to certain that more than 75% of the current pro-choice supporters would quickly become pro-life supporters; if they understood the actual history behind the pro-choice (eugenics) movement, and it's on-going intent.

It's important to understand the history behind the (eugenics) groups who initiated and financed the pro-choice movement. It was never about a women's right to choose.
To these groups; abortion (pro-choice) has always been about the legal method for population reduction in specific demographics.

This is the reason that the eugenics movement continues to suppress it's history. People are not allowed to know the facts. Moral people oppose ethnic cleansing, and murderous injustice.

That Eretz Israel detail is a problem for you isn't it?

Do you mean absolutely, or relative to other contemporary empires?

Is this an accidental forum slide, or a deliberate forum slide? :-/
