I don't like football much but I was rooting for Croatia. Shame. :(
I am outraged at the result. There was a CLEAR referee error! After Brozovic megged Pogba with a backheel, they should have stopped play and awarded Croatia the trophy. How could they miss that?!

http://www.interglacial.com/pub/text/Umberto_Eco_-_Eternal_Fascism.html Here's an interesting article by Umberto Eco on what Fascism is.

Unfortunately, Mexico loses.

In the Belgium win, what a goal in the final seconds! The team literally sprinted down the field to score in the final seconds.
What a crazy second half! That Vertonghen header was redonculous.

Re: Football World Cup.

Referees did a disappointingly poor job with overseeing the penalties: https://drp-images.nettavisen.no/images/article/2018/07/01/3423509236/1/w650/5388086.jpg This image shows Russian goalkeeper being nowhere near the goal line, which is where they should be when taking a penalty.

Would an enlightened guru ever have mundane sex?
First of all, why not? Second of all, what is an "enlightened guru" in your eyes?

Re: Scary Liberal Views and Policy Positions?

I agree that a business should be able to refuse to provide services in the case of being asked to support things they do not (the Nazi example is apropos there), but in some of these cases that is not what happened at all. What happened was some gay people ordered a cake and got turned down solely...

Businesses are not autonomous. They depend on a currency administered by the government. They depend on roads and rail infrastructure to receive goods from other businesses that similarly depend on what society as a whole have paid for. You can choose what you want to sell. What you can't do is disc...
