Re: Irish 'multiculturalism'

That's not what this thread's about. It's about the British Govts.' deliberate campaign to undermine the Irish vote and ensure a royalist majority by exporting Britih protestants there. Genocide by sheer numbers. Northern Irish protestants aren't Irish--they even have a horrible accent. ... Their d...

To all the PC scoundrels on here: what do you think of Ireland (do you think at all?), and the travesty of 'Northern Ireland', which was artificially created by being flooded with protestant English, "travesty"? - since 1630 or so? i see no travesty. only history. thereby skewing the royalist 'elec...

Re: Selfish God

seriously. i implore you to listen to the full "the canticle of liebowitz" - it over in internet archive, as said. you can google it. listen to it (then read the book - its rare that a latter work is as good as the original, but the 1980 radioplay is equal to the original book - not better nor worse...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

Nothing inductive can ever be entirely accurate enough Sure it can be. You just need to lower your expectations :) If you are an idealist who wants perfect prediction - good luck. Idealists are not perfectionists. the former strive for the good and appreciate the progress toward, the latter demand ...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

Re: the US is a constitutional republic, not a democracy

-1- The way it's supposed to work (in the American system): majority rules within the confines of the constitution (and laws extending out of the constitution). That is: the majority calls the shots but can't abuse the minority in the process. Example: no one may like bald, scrawny, one-eyed bastid...
