I was referring to nuking religious targets. Though I notice that occupying troops keep getting hit with IEDs. Somebody sure wants you out. Good for you, vote for the military/industrial complex. I think you're out of your gourd if you do, but it's your country. Your military can already take out ju...

Nice word, had to look it up. Mendacious; given to or characterized by deception or falsehood or divergence from absolute truth While we're at it, let's look up the other word, shall we? Genocide; the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group Ok, let's look even...

What Betruger, you don't like puppies? Really, I find the whole thing pretty simple. I can't accept genocide as a viable strategy, and that's what you guys propose as a 'good' idea for dealing with terrorists. Because when you start the bombing, the whole area is going to come after you with blood o...

I'm more in mind of the joke from "Master and Commander," - Which weevil do you choose, the big strong weevil, or the small weevil? - Well, the larger I suppose. - No! you must always choose the lesser of the two weevils! I can't argue that the US has been nicer to surrendering countries. You've ear...

1 ) ... so? 2 ) Yes. irreconcilable differences. Between nations. Police settle the ones between people and nutcases. 3 ) Yes. 4 ) Wikipedia says thought experiment. Sure, fair enough 5 ) It's a religion. Despite what you might think, you can't really have a war with a religion. You don't sign peace...

Hmm... I think the middle east should nuke Washington. After all, the US has committed terrorist acts, war crimes and inflicted massive civilian casualties in lots of countries. They're always grumbling, and occasionally invade places that haven't done anything to them. It's the only way to stop the...

Yep, that year is because we are killing our poor by denying them treatment. Really, most poor people get treatment, although inefficiently. We should improve our system and help to subsidize insurance for those who can't afford it. I am just not for a government take over. Good point about life ex...

I agree with all your points Skipjack, but we know that governments are also pretty open to corruption. I think that's just the human condition.

TD, I wasn't aiming the 'Be Civil' just at you. Not being civil is pointless, since it means that everyone is just shouting and never listening. Eventually the fights start, and that never leads anywhere good. But JoeOh did say something true and relevant. Do you have a tanker truck, pumper, and 200...

Except since only about 10% or less of the "small duty" goes to anything rationally or even traditionally government's job--let alone in the constitution RE the feds--and even the local cops do a great deal that isn't any of their business; why don't you STFU until you have something to say that's ...

Not slavery, Diogenes. That would be an association fallacy . After all, there is nothing stopping you from walking away and living off the land except the fact that you like all those little modern convinces that society provides. And I do agree that freeloaders are a problem. I just think that if ...

You are a Canadian commenting on US healthcare claiming that anyone who doesn't want it to be socialized should get out and go to Antartica and die? Not out of Canada, but out of the United States!?! Now that's a pair you have there. Anyway, obviously the United States is not an example of people w...

No, I'm telling him to move to antartica if he doesn't want to pay a government he doesn't like, and if he can't afford the equipment to keep him alive, he should die there. The problem is that there are people who are in the position of not being able to pay their own health care - free market says...

Typical progressive blind spots not even seeing the self contradictions. How can you have liberty when public option is paid for by confiscation of private property? Oh and I'd like to be in the part that gets amputated, thanks... I know you hate the idea of taxes, but there are some things that ju...
