Nathan (Striker) Rates Music

29 August 2018 - 10:40 PM

I might as well join the fun.

Rules*

1. One song at a time. Post one song, and wait for me to deliver before posting another.

2. Don't post entire playlists.

3. I reserve the right to skip a song for any reason. Probably length reasons. But unless you're posting Light of Day, Day of Darkness or something, I can't imagine you'll post a song that's too long for me to rate.

4. I won't rate links; please make sure your post contains the video itself. "https" and "youtu.be" are your enemy here.

5. I will be using JelloApocalypse's scoring guide, which includes negative scores indicating ironic enjoyment. Meme songs are pretty much guaranteed a negative score.

Colorado Baker Sues State Again

16 August 2018 - 11:22 AM

Yep, same baker that won his Supreme Court case on the narrowist of grounds. Instead of a same sex couple, it's a transgender woman this time around. Personally, I hope Colorado got its act together and doesn't make the mistakes that cost them the first trial.

EDIT: I doubt this baker is going to win, though anything can happen. I personally don't believe people can discriminate against others due to their religious beliefs. At the same time, it is a fine line and one that should be decided case by case. If the baker were to win again, I'd assume it'd be a narrow judgment again.

Discuss your thoughts on the case. Should religious beliefs allow behavior that would otherwise be discriminatory? Is there a fine line?

[AMA] Walking Through the Darkness of the Unknown

01 August 2018 - 06:45 PM

I don't know what's going on, but I haven't felt 100% myself lately. Maybe this Summertime loneliness is finally getting to me? Maybe it's the unknown that awaits after I graduate this year? I don't know. Anyway, AMA.

Parenting: When does society exert too much control?

28 July 2018 - 06:34 PM

No video for you this time, just an opinion piece from the NYT I found on Facebook.

Child abuse/negligence laws exist for a reason. They are meant to ensure that parents adequately provide for their children's well beings. Legitimate cases of child abuse/negligence do exist, and society has an obligation to intervene in those cases to provide for children when their parents refuse to do so.

The issue that this opinion piece has, and one that I'm irritated about, is when society forces societal norms, on otherwise good parents, under the guise of fulfilling this obligation. Take for instance the first example of a parent having a warrant placed on them for having their child in the car as they ran into the store for a brief period of time. Did I say parent? I meant mother, since apparently these societal norms are typically pushed upon mothers and not fathers. Society placing these norms essentially tells parents (i.e. mothers) that they don't know what's best for their children, though I do contend there must be a balance to this (e.g. childhood vaccinations).

So, does society except too much control over parenting? Are their legitimate issues society is obligated to intervene in? If there are any other things to discuss about this, what are they?
