Re: Shooting at Elementary School (est 27 dead)

but things that are dangerous, need rules for owning and operating. You don't NEED rules. Instead you WANT the rules and as a society we form the social contract that there will be rules. It is simply a false imperative. However you have to be very careful because we specifically enshrined there ar...

Re: Shooting at Elementary School (est 27 dead)

Ddrak, The chart you are showing is just assault violence instead of mass murder. I think looking at them separately can shed some light on it differently, not that I question the validity of the data. Some of the information I am reading is that 1929 was the high point in mass killings in the U.S. ...

Re: Reaching Across the Isle

Since the California vote thread made me post I might as well respond to this one. While I still think the rhetoric is largely socialist about taxing the rich and class warfare I also recognize that compromise has its place. My contention about higher taxes is that there is so much government waste....

Re: I Voted: Once again I was all over the map.

I got moved out to California for work late last year and did vote in the election this year. Had to respond because it was California specific. Amazed me how much of a boom industry there are for the political advertisements due to all of the propositions. Now these actors must be going into the dr...

Re: Chavez wannabe legally ousted, media calls it a coup.

He is the elected president until 2010. If he committed a crime then he should be tried for it. For this to not have been a coup it would have meant that the military would have enforced the existing laws and removed him from office the day his term expired, but they moved faster then that and it is...

Re: The roots of political morality

Good find.

And to clarify Conservatives do not find Loyalty, Authority, and Purity more important then Harm and Fairness, but grouped pretty close together instead of a large difference in them as found in Liberals.

I definitely agree with the Buddhist stanza on truth.

Suit me? And I thought we were using the laws to make the determination instead of biased opinions.

I am curious as to what torture you think I am denying. Do you need an exercise like Lurker's?

He was still a terrorist.
This only an opinion which makes it shocking that I am the one trying to keep opinions off of Fox News and you would have it the other way.

Re: Obama fails to prevent terrorism

You still haven't provided any evidence that Roeder has committed any other attack in the past making this "Roeder's latest attack".

Or were you too busy being condescending to respond?

Re: Obama fails to prevent terrorism

Just because Roeder's latest attack was aimed at a single doctor doesn't suddenly make him not a terrorist, especially when you consider the goals and methods of the radical movement he was part of. Latest attack? Where and when were these other attacks? A conviction that was later overturned on po...

Re: Obama fails to prevent terrorism

Lurker we already had this exercise. Just because Roeder's motivations were "political or religious" does not make it terrorism. If the goal was to kill a known abortion doctor who he followed for years, that is pretty damn personal and he only harmed the doctor not any of the bystanders. Bombing an...

Re: Obama fails to prevent terrorism

why Fox News doesn't call Scott Roeder a terrorist. Sorry, but there are no declarations that hostility will cease if the abortion doctors put away their needles and scalpels. There is no threats to escalate the violence. It is not about change, but simply in the mind of this person punishment for ...
