"Anyone who has evidence against me, stand up."

I have no evidence to present cuz I've levied no charge.

You, however, claim to hob-nob with shakers & movers, and say your connections to those lofty beings can be proven (and you offered to do so).

So: do it.

"The connections I have can be proven (if you want)"

Anyone who wants jay to prove he has connections to the powers that be, raise your hand.

"And yet it appears to only be the far right-wing who yak on about using their guns to overthrow a democractically elected government?" That's drummed up manure: yeah, a minority of blowhards make a lotta noise, but the majority of the 'far right-wing' are workin', not conspirin'. No, it's the openl...

The bond between parent and child is real, but isn't ownership. And: I believe from 12 weeks on (and probably well before that) a pregnant woman carries a person, not a potential person, or a possible person, but an actual person. I believe this person owns himself. I believe this person ought not g...

"So you're making up your own definitions and rules." underdeveloped = not fully developed incomplete = not complete The two are not synonomous. # "you get all goo-goo over a fetus" I get all goo-goo over a fetus cuz it's 'human'. It's not a dog, porpoise, or platypus: it's human. Is there no differ...

"it is not a complete human" From 12 weeks on what a pregnant woman carries most certainly is a complete human. The fetus-person is underdeveloped, sure, but it is 'complete'. # "it is not a conscious human" Not as you and I reckon it, no. But the fetus-person has complex brain activity. Lil fetus-p...

"Who is murdering babies?" If what a pregnant woman carries is a person, then that would be the abortionist, yeah? # Lace, "It is surprising that you think a choice of A or B is actually sufficient in considering the range of possibilities regarding life and nature." We're talkin' about a finite tim...

"Clinical abortions are not children "being murdered"." If 'murder' is killing a person without justification (that is, killing an innocent) then clinical abortions might very well be 'children being murderd'. Comes down to: is the unborn a person? When, during the pregnancy, do human cells become a...

Really, if the thread annoys, if my approach annoys, there are other threads to trundle 'round in. Absolutely, you can both hang out 'here', givin' me the business, but I'm not seein' the point.

I was thinkin' it was a glass & girder deal, but, yeah, it coulda been a suspension.
