interesting.

"In March 1982, 25 years ago, the small town of Kennesaw – responding to a handgun ban in Morton Grove, Ill. – unanimously passed an ordinance requiring each head of household to own and maintain a gun. Since then, despite dire predictions of “Wild West” showdowns and increased violence and accidents, not a single resident has been involved in a fatal shooting – as a victim, attacker or defender."

Abortion is murder of a baby. Fact.

Actually there is no agreement on that which is why we have choice.

But nobody is pro abortion. SOme of us are pro choice.

sarcasm font on.

Isn't male masturbation murder too, at least for those of us who have ever masturbated when there was a woman willing to have unprotected sex with us ?

Why draw the line of potential life at the fertalization of the egg?

If I were single, and noticed an attractive female, that would have been willing to have unprotected sex with me, and to give birth to the reulting child,...

is it murder for me to not go ahead and get it on with her ?

( i am serious - obviously not as bad as abortion - but still murder right?)

Never, but you don't seem to grasp any point being made. I don't know why I
bother with you.

you said, in big bold letters, that expecting a law to do anythng is stupid (I paraphrase this time, but quoted above)
That is what I'm saying too.

We have laws against murder .... but the punisment is too passive. Start making murder very unpopular and sane criminal minded people will avoid it. Insane maniacs may not avoid commiting murder, and should be removed from earth asap.

A law against you owning any weapon that Lord Barry arms his Army with is wrong. Not balistics, not machines, but personally carried weapons and their full arrey of ammo. If they have a 50 cal machine gun, you should be able to have one too. If they have hand held anti-air rockets, you should be able to own them too. If you murder (murder 1) someone with those wepaons, or with your bare hands, then you should suffer the fate I detailed above.

I don't think so. The sperm has a short life span, and never splits. Millions and billions of sperm are created and die and are flushed from your body through the waste system. So, if you pass a few through nocturnal emmisions, or through manual flogging, you are not stopping the splitting of a healthy human cell, or the beating of a health human heart - in the way abortion does. In my opinion.

I do know the Catholic Church has an issue with tossed seed, and it is kinda suggested to not abuse your body in the manner in the Bible ... I would imagine that is because of the way it makes you fixate on naughty things like the cleavage of the lady in the tent next door ... and sin could take place if you dwell on such things ... maybe that is their point? Not sure. I know that in todays productivly driven families the young are repressed well into their sexual maturity, and that has things kinda twisted. They are put on the pill to avoid getting prego so they can go to college and earn degrees, and when they do finally begin to reproduce it is 1 or 2 kids and they come at age 30ish. On the other hand is a non-productive driven culture that turns their girls out at 15 and they start breeding right away. They have 3 or 4 kids before they are 25. So the population shift (say, since Prop 187 was illegally stopped by a liberal court) has been dramatic due to these cultural differences. Not sure why I went into this ... I'm rambling? lol

I humbly suggest that the only young men that never abuse their bodies are those who were born without arms, and couldn't find an object to rub against in private that accomplished the task. If a teenaged fellow leaves it alone, he will wake up with a mess once a week anyways, so planned events make for less mess. I'm not sure this is backed by any religious belief, but they may have left that part out in Canon ... like they did with the book of Enoch.

First - every drug user should be made infertile.
Second - every welfare taker - all forms of welfare - should be made to give up their right to vote for the entire 12 months of any year they are on aide, and females should have implanted contriception that stays in place until a full year after the last time they accept aide.
And then what you suggest is a good idea. Ofcourse you must realize that it is white conservative Christians that do the majority of adoption, right? Liberals only take in foster kids so they can access some free money from "program" kids. Adoption costs people money, not like foster progams. I bet you knew that.

Right....

OBama is probably the most moderate to right wing democratic President we have ever seen. He's a pragmatist.

But he is dealing with a very messed up time, and some truly retarded right wingers in congress who have destroyed the republican party.

You can't see how far we have swung to the right. There aren't that many true "liberals" in the government any more. Democrats are mostly moderate, and only relatively liberal compared to the far right that dominates the republicans.

ROnald Reagan is a liberal in this world. Btw, he got behind an assault weapons ban.

YOu would be able to see this if it weren't how vulnerable all your fundy friends are to the right wing entertainment complex.

Kind of like the posts I just read in this thread. It does go to show, that wholly stupid and misinformed opinions don't discriminate from the far left or the far right, as proven by the exchange between kevin and bap, two seemingly otherwise intelligent beings, whose minds have been infiltrated by the asinine political bent of their choosing. Ignorance may be bliss, but it sure reads sad

I have to admit, that starting with the "moral majority" of the 80s, all the way to now when Fox et als appeal to fundamentalists Christians, this was a brilliant way for the right wing to gain and maintain power.

If you convince people that your party has the moral high ground, then there is all kinds of stupidity they will tolerate or overlook.

By the way, this is tied to the answer to this question.

Ironically, while bringing fundamentalists in to the republican tent brought them power, and certainly a few Presidents, it is turning out to be their undoing, if things continue as they have recently.

Bap's sad interpretation of this phenomenon:

I disagree. Kennedy was a good Democrat. Reagan was a good Republican. The two were pretty close is view and actionm would you agree?

Todays GOP is full of RINO pukes that are career political hacks and are not any more conservative than Mike Moore. If the GOP does get razed, it will be to the good of the conservative voice in this nation. There is no room for conservatives in todays GOP.

Lord Barry is a wolf in wolf's clothing. His Chicago mob is using the law of the jungle and bully tactics, and avoiding all forms of legality. To anyone not blinded by the a haze of dope and/or perversion fueled liberalism, it is obvious.

sorry, illegal drug, including recreational MJ.

welfare - Unearned access to goods, services, and/or cash - by action of forced wealth transfer between citizens - under threat of law by Gov. That pretty much sums it up.

Wow.

First off, I'm betting that those who take in foster kids are just about as likely to be conservative as liberal

But here's my main point.

Foster kids are usually older kids that are either too old for adoption (adopting parents strongly prefer to adopt infants), or in many cases their status is unclear. Such as father dies, mother is in rehab. In other words, it is sometimes a possibly temporary situation.

I bet you didn't know that.

The fact that some money is sometimes available to go with a foster child, might help some low income people to become foster parents, but it takes a worse than cynical mind to see it as usually being the primary motive.

It's really too bad you have such reading comprehension problems...

The FBI chart I posted showed that there were over 1 million background checks in 2012, which means more guns were sold in 2012 on top of what was already in possession.

Listen, dipshit - when you use the word "more", it must be in comparison to something. To simply say "more guns were sold in 2012" makes no sense. More than WHAT? I posted actual data of gun sales over time, and you can clearly see that gun sales are lower than they were in the past.

Now I'll type this slow for you to see if you can keep up...

You type slow because you ARE slow.

So this contradicts the mantra that more guns equals more murders, because the murder rate went down in CA while gun purchases and the total amount of guns went up.

I hope I didn't type too fast for you to understand that point.

You can keep saying that as many times as you like; it doesn't make it true.

Besides which, the only number which is meaningful in analyzing the murder rate vs. how many guns are owned, is the OWNERSHIP rate. And the ownership rate is down.

I guess the next thing you'll start spouting is that the FBI data is made up or not correct, right??

No, just that it's national data. Did you forget already that you were arguing about California? Not only do you cherry-pick all your data; you use data that is irrelevant to what you're talking about.

By the way, if you actually look at the data for California background checks OVER TIME, which you neglected to do, you see that the number of background checks was LOWER every year after 1999. The only 2 years it was higher were 2011 and 2012. Yet the murder rate fell considerably after peaking in 1993. The correlation you are claiming simply does not exist.

You really have no idea what's going on, do you?

I am a conservative regarding those things. I am also a conservative with regard to seeing AMerica as a melting pot, and embracing diversity as the positive that it has always been.

Also a conservative with respect to what I see as best for America economically, which is definitely not taking us back to the guilded age.

I see things like social safety nets and universal health care as steps towards being what every decent country will obviously eventually be.

Oppression and exploitation of the poor masses is not what I worry about preserving in America.

I view Eisenhower as a great American conservative. If he could see America now, he would be bothered by an entitely differnt set of issues than you are. He was FAR to the left of Obama. (using your definition of left).

He was a great republican (but to the left of what you call rhinos).

Here's one quote:

I despise people who go to the gutter on either the right or the left and hurl rocks at those in the center.

another...

We will bankrupt ourselves in the vain search for absolute security.

I support social safety nets and universal healthcare. However, they must be made available to people of all economic backgrounds alike.

If welfare is provided only to the poor, you create a chasm between classes. People need to know that the net will be there even if they work harder.

I'll try this again in hopes you can understand the term "more".

As I stated in my comment above, approximately 1 million MORE guns were purchased in 2012. What that means that 1 million additional guns were ADDED to the existing that are owned in possession.

By definition, that is "more"...

Guns that were bought in past years don't disappear or vaporize away, so when they sell 1 million "MORE" guns, these get added to the existing total.

Understand yet??? Here, let's see if this helps with a simple math lesson:

Say there are 10 million guns already owned and now a additional 1 million are purchased. So based on simple addition:

10 million + 1 million = 11 million total...

I'm not sure I can explain it any simpler to you unless you don't know basic math.

So, now you have a cumulative supply of "more" guns in the hands of citizens yet the murder rate goes down.

So, how does that fit the chant of "more guns equals more murders"??
