So I guess even in Chicago, the only solution they could think of to stop bad guys with guns is to bring in good guys with guns.
"the general public has a justified interest in counteracting the development of religiously or philosophically motivated ‘parallel societies’ and in integrating minorities in this area." Think about that phrase, "Integrating minorities". This is used here in reference to ideological or religious minorities. The "parallel society" being alleged is not one that removes itself from the mainstream, but simply one that refuses to think in lockstep with the majority. This is a sort of "newspeak" style phrase for forcing individuals to agree with majority opinions.

How is "choice" anything but an irrelevancy? It's either a baby or it isn't a baby. If it is a baby, it shouldn't be killed, no matter who had or didn't have a chance to choose. If it's not a baby, then the abortion should be legal, whether the mother already had a choice in the matter or not.

And this, folks, is the logical fallacy of affirming the converse.

BonnyB, sure! “If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” --Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn And as chipsmydog said, the answer is Jesus Christ.

Of course, if we did let the young teachers with "enthusiasm" take the jobs of veteran teachers, then plenty of veteran teachers would find a way to restore some of their own "enthusiasm."
You judge her based on her appearance, calling her a dog? But you aren't saying that because she's actually ugly, only because you don't like her views. You're engage in the typical liberal tactic of dehumanizing women and minorities - that is, instead of judging her on the validity of her views, you want to make her as a woman less than human so she can be judged only on her appearance. YOU are the one degrading your gender, treating her as if only men are independently intelligent and so are the only ones capable of holding diverse views. It's sick, frankly.
