A big dollop of self-loathing? Misery loves company, and what more a captive audience than young women paying for college credit?

WTH kind of oblique reference is this? Oh, okay, I get it: Conservatism is so 1950s?

I fully agree with your opinion on property rights. In the name of the "war" on drugs, law enforcement is given considerable latitude, and confiscation of personal property, even if no illegal drug activity is proven.
It doesn't take a brilliant legal analyst to note that liberals, in the main, do not like anything that has the "corporate" tag. The Citizens United case, as well as the Hobby Lobby ruling, clearly illustrate the tension that most of the left feels about "non-human" entities that are businesses. This anti-business climate, of placing unnecessary regulatory burdens and taxes on corporations, has shown itself to be hurtful in the state that I reside in. Illinois, you put me in a bankrupt state (for all of those readers who are familiar with the early 1990s Illinois Tourism jingle, "Happy State".
And that is why Atheists cannot-and will not-protest in front of churches. It is like garlic to them, plus they are a cowardly bunch when confronted with prayer, and not the threat of punches.
Equating Atheists protesting in front of churches to the "prodding", "poking", "obsenity-hurling" pro-life crowds is, well, quite risible. Ever think why so few churches, even Catholic ones, have not been the target of ACTUAL obsenity-hurling, prodding and poking...and spitting, punching, defecating, NIHILIST leftists? Your answer? Try looking at it common sensically, i.e., the real world.
Thanks for your service! Yeah, I have to agree with your opinion on VA care. It is not my choice, even with my fixed income.
I have had the same kind of delay and deny experiences with my local VA clinic. I was gravely ill with adrenal and thyroid illness, yet, the doctor (bureaucrat, in her own description), not once, decided to push me off on my "private doctor". Uh, hello? Why did I come to the VA in the first place? To be passed off to the private market that I hadn't the money to pay for? Luckily, the parents interceded, and I got the real medical care I was desperately seeking. Costly lesson.
You might want to visit the works of Thomas Szasz. There is no trade off, in my estimation, between denying the non-violent mentally ill their civil rights, and freeing society of its most dangerous. There are coercive and oppressive features of psychiatry that ARE provable, as there are many psychotropic drugs that do great harm. We can at least agree upon that as a starting point.
