Hi Bird, thanks for the response. I see your point. I was more arguing that people are born with things they cannot control. You stated that you believed such things did not exist. Either people cannot control defects which happen in them, or they can. If we could, I don't think anyone would be defective (except for those of us BECAUSE WE CAN).
People are born with 'some things' they cannot control, all the time. We have unfortunate souls who do not have the mental capacity to function in society, and need care. We have those with physical birth defects. Some can be caused by activity of the mother during pregnancy. How much control does an autistic child have over their condition at birth? Don't perceive me as arguing homosexuals are mentally defective. I don't know why it happens.

If we really were, we could have dropped a nuke or two on North Korea, established our 'ruthlessness', and saved ourselves a couple of wars..

AZhot- Well we're in luck for a turnaround! Since the NDAA declared all of mainland US a battlefield, lets get everyone moving! Don't even gotta leave town. traitorbill- Also I think because of this and the government pushing civil war in the NE that future battlefields have a good chance of becoming pools of American blood...

I understand where you're coming from, Joseph, but your same argument can be made for alcohol. Is the guy barreling toward the red light at break neck speed drunk? Or maybe he had a natural chemical imbalance. Is the guy barreling toward the red light at break neck speed suicidal? Is the guy barreling toward the red light at break neck speed held hostage at gunpoint? That gives me the right to tell you that we can't own guns.

In my (once) great state of NJ, it is still legal to brew up to 200 gallons of spirits a year for your own personal use.
