    I totally agree with Kevin Kruse! Going vegan made me realize that I’m making a difference — physically, morally, environmentally and socially. With this, I know I’m making an impact!

    Love the video! Well-thought of and brilliantly edited 😉

    But the article on religious belief and practice pains my heart 🙁

    Makeup does wonders and transformations! Victoria Secret models look so different without makeup! Yes, they are still beautiful but I barely recognize them…

    Those saying that preventing the cutting off parts of a baby boy violates the cutter’s freedom of religion, are way out there in irrational land. One’s religion ends where their knife touches another human’s body. The idea that another human’s ritual (rite) trumps ones right to ones OWN body parts is insane and creepy.

    The parts of the that are cut off are some of the most highly innervated parts of the human. A whole range of sensation and sexual and protective function are lost. The lips, fingertips and nipples have similar touch sense. To take this away from another person without their consent is heinous. To do this to a newborn baby is creepy, child abuse and a human rights VIOLATION.

    The more I learn about various religions, the more bizarre they seem to me. This is the 21st century…let’s get with the science and forget about these ridiculous, archaic rituals! Where are these Rabbis getting herpes to begin with?

    Maybe it’s because I don’t watch that show, but I can’t tell if this was supposed to be pro-Trump or anti-Trump.

      I notice that they have Trump saying “this country needs a dealmaker” immediately followed by “no deals, not with anybody, we don’t make deals”. This might be intended to make Trump look bad by exposing his inconsistency. But it really doesn’t come off as strongly pro- or anti-Trump even with that. Just a really funny video!
