Well, to be accurate: she's a commie.

Keep in mind, from where I stand: most of the repub party are commies.

Liberal or social democracy: just a nice way of sayin' 'commie'.
Yeah, you're right; I think that's pretty much what it boils down to.

Re: Belinda

Belinda, for example, is certain liberal democracy/social democracy, if not a superior path, is the preferable path, one leading to a measure of civilization for everyone. Me: I see free enterprise and the night watchman as the path to individual excellence and thriving. We, she & me, listen to one...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Is charisma a suitable qualification for a political leader? Belinda, I tend to think of a "qualification" as something that you earn and acquire, like a university degree. Charisma isn't like that - it an innate personal quality. In any case the notion, of a bad/incompetent charismatic politician ...

Thatcher: the worst thing that ever happened to the UK. Pure Evil. Dear Sculptor No, the worst thing that ever happened to the UK was Tony Blair ( Aka: "Phoney Tony", "Tory Blair"). "Cool Britannia" turned out to be not such a "blast", did it, Sculptor ? ( I mean any British PM who thinks its kewl ...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

My position is that a human being comes into existence at conception, that is, when a male sperm cell fertilises a female's ovum in the womb. That's the end of what you usefully wrote there. I'm bored of explaining that honest people of good intention can disagree over this, and that it is what def...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

That's why this entire thread is a waste of effort. Zero respect shown for the fact that others don't consider that butchery, or achild. Dear Flashdangerpants, This tread is not a waste of effort - it is precisely the opposite. It touches directly on one of the most pressing moral issues of our tim...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

So there must be a logical connection, like perhaps a rational link between action (in the first place, tooth cleaning) and certain particular material conditions (in the second, decay prevention), but not perhaps an absolute necessary causal relationship between material conditions in the first pl...

[ Your entire premise regarding abortion is based solely on the ridiculous and demeaning assumption that human life is sacred...note, ONLY human life. What a truly disgusting idea that is.

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Dachshund, the phrases , the metaphors, you employ are foreign to me. I steer clear of populism as much as I can. On second thoughts, maybe you miss your mother. Dear Belinda, Your snarky comment brings to mind a verse from John Donne ( the great 17th century English metaphysical poet)... Hope not ...
