Is is just me or is pastorial on drugs? He continuously posts non sequitur sentences and insistantly calls on others to debate him on his vapid assertions, never accepting factual statements, and just asking more questions in a pseudo-Socratic style. Then, when people simply get tired of his pointless routine and tell him to go jump in the lake (or more colorful words to that effect, he "comes to the conclusion" that they are bigots, hate-filled, or whatever. For the record, if you have to define (over and over and over....) what the MODERN terms conservative, liberal and libertarian mean, then you probably shouldn't be posting on a political/social commentary site.

So your group can subscribe to a clearly stated belief system that does NOT involve inflicting actual physical or financial harm to another person ("fire in a crowed theater"), but the group can't collectively demand adherence to those beliefs in order to become a member, officer or public representative of the group? So I guess you "would not want to commit" to whether the democratic party can legally refuse to allow pro-choice or anti-gun control members to speak at their conventions. Good luck with that standard.
do that, any People's Army recruit can mow your soldiers down with cheap machine guns and artillery pieces, with no worries about GPS guided bombs and satelite-guided air strikes ruining their day.
Clinton couldn't get Hillarycare passed and he was dragged kicking a screaming into welfare reform. He also had a Republican congress after his first two years to restrain his natural big spender tendancies. Military spending may need to be cut in some areas, but this nonsense about comparing how much we spend to how much our potential adversaries SAY they spend, (oh heavens ... you don't think China, Russia, North Korea, etc. would LIE about something like that, do you?), is fallacious. We choose to spend money on technology and better training than they do. That keeps us from having to send a disproportionate number of troops out to DIE against cheap, mass casualty -producing weapons like napalm and cluster munitions. If you don't...
I don't expect you to read this tbrennan; after all someone who claims to speak for the "german people" in giving his opininon of an American presidential candidate doesn't strike me as rational enough to have a coherent conversation with a thinking person. I guarantee that you cannot come up with one example of how Mitt Romney supposedly "trampled the rights of women" that any sane person would accept as factual. And, no, a couple of dumb comments from Republican senate candidates don't count. If the democrats can endless laud women abusing (and KILLING) saytrs like Teddy Kennedy, you don't have a leg to stand on in going after Republicans on a that. Clinto had Graham-Rudman to limit his attempts to spend as much as he wanted to.

Missing the point. Defining the compensation for those doing the "essential and vital services" should not be negotiated by "employers" who have a vested interest being able to curry favor with the people on the other side of the negotiating table: public employee unions and Democratic politicians. The big problem is that these "employers" are happy to negotiate for benefits that automatically increase for these employees in the future, since the current crop of politicians will be safely back in the private sector or dead by the time the piper has to be paid for "legacy costs".

Gee, I don't know inquisteur; Maybe hiring people of all races in tens of thousands, electing "people of color" to the governorship of Louisiana, supporting black businessmen who run for the presidency, defending black Supreme Court justice nominees from liberal smear machines, becoming cops who arrest thugs of all colors that prey on the black community, welcoming black people into their church affiliations in pretty much every state, cheering for black athletes on thousands of sports teams, serving honorably under military leaders of different skin colors in war ....?

Sorry, DHE. Have to take issue with you on one point: "...the need of some religious people to convince themselves that atheism is a religion.". A number of large, populous and militarily aggressive countries established atheism as a state "religion" (or belief system, if you prefer) over the past century or so. Lots of religious people and political conservatives, plus the subsets thereof, are justifiably concerned about moves our own government is making in that direction.
