I don't want the government to tread on anyone either, but those who ask for it, deserve it.
Amen!

Re: perspective, numbers, facts: SWPRS July update

Yes, but I don’t think HQ considers COVID to be a gift from God. After all, it turns us into sheep, just as you imply here. His greatest concern is that government must not tread on anyone, but mainly not on him. It was meant satirically, of course, which Henry understood . I don't want the governm...

Re: perspective, numbers, facts: SWPRS July update

Those kinds of facts are anarchistic and atheistic . How can a government function if people are not going to be kept in a permanent paranoid frenzy to be saved by the government? "Civilization, in fact, grows more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mer...

Re: Statues and Sports Team Names

If you unlawfully tear down a statue, you're a not a peaceful protestor, you're a vandal, and you should be imprisoned. Yes, or at least a hefty fine to pay for repairing and re-erecting the statue, and then some. OK, jail time if they don’t pay. These things must be decided democratically, not by ...

Re: RO

America was founded on beliefs and values, among which is the belief that all are created to be on equal footing. The founders intended to include only men who were white, but along the way we have become woke to the rightness of including women and peoples of color. Name-changing and statue-displa...

Re: Democracy

Everyone who truly believes in democracy votes, and with some rare exceptions, everyone who votes is always unhappy with the way everyone else votes, which doesn't make any sense. It, indeed, doesn’t make any sense—unless everyone voted differently than everyone else. Voters are usually content wit...

Re: Happy Birthday America

Gaffo,
If you’d like to ignore the anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, then I suggest using the date the U.S. Constitution was ratified as the birthdate of the country:
9/17/1787.

Re: Defunding Police

Why do you say Veg is a white-supremacist? I don't think I've ever seen her post anything even remotely like whites being superior to black people. In fact, I'd say it's more like the opposite--that she's as much for justice and equality as any other progressive person. She's a closet racist. With ...

Re: Defunding Police

Sculptor is under the delusion that he's intellectually superior to everyone on here, and when his idiocy is exposed he lashes out--as all PC religious fanatics do. You are the one who is spot on.
