    It's not politically incorrect to call capitalism, capitalism. Then again, I don't really expect you to give anything but a nonsensical answer as to why it is necessary to refer to an economic system by anything but its actual name. Unless of course capitalists are ashamed of being capitalists.

    I moved to Texas a little over a year ago, just outside of Austin, TX and it is one of the coolest places. The Austin/San Marcos/San Antonio area is great. Have met and hung out with so many just cool, chill people. This is the TX I know: Cerebral Desecration rehearsal - YouTube

    Austin is different from other places in Texas. It's more for the younger crowd. It's still in Texas, but I guess if you had to be there, and you were young, it'd be the place to be.

    PC was used by the American "left" in an ironic or even sarcastic sense. It was the American right who took it up as a pejorative slogan against any who disagreed with them.

    If they booed, it was probably because he was acting like an asshole.

    If I was there I would have boo'd him for not understanding the passage. The passage never says the moon emits light, just that it is the source of light at night. Reflected light is still a source of light. Bill Nye is a liberal that tried to twist the words of the Bible in the Bible belt. He should have known he'd get boo'd. He probably did know.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Whoosh, right over your head.

    Nye is a scientists and doesn't have to engage in biblical hermeneutics. What is telling is that the weirdo tea baggers in the audience can't accept the fact that the moon doesn't generate its own light because they are weird literalists.

    It's telling you would blame Nye for the idiotic literalism of the Christian Right.
