Comment Re:The missing link is mental illness (Score 1) 82

You do claim to be pro-life, right? Obviously your stated priorities here belie that notion.

Wow, you get the non-sequitur of the day here. Let's differentiate between
(a) advocating the obviousness of life starting when one's information is complete (it's an uber-#Derp to say otherwise, but you seem enamored of such) and
(b) insisting, as a policy matter, that my tax dollars not fund something I find morally equivalent to the Holocaust.
I'm guessing you may be trying to go for some hypocrisy play here, as though one cannot hold position (a) while halting at (b) and striving to improve the situation through proper policy channels? Is that the rhetorical wedge you strive to drive?

That is no excuse to keep on doing it.

You. . .still have not stipulated what *else* you're suggesting, Oh Fountain \Of Foreign Policy Wisdom. For example, given the Diplomatic, Informational, Military, and Economic (DIME) levers of national power, you seem intent on de-emphasizing the M. Fair enough. What sort of policy framework would you stipulate to achieve some other stipulated national strategy goal?
My expectations are low, low, low: by all means, surprise me.

My reaction is a straight up, accurate representation of reality. Your gyrations continue to be of scientific interest at best.

You're just a regular guy enjoying and more recently fearing for his overwhelming demographic supremacy.

Working hard, trying to find a shred of validity to your godless Commie sodomite droolings, one enjoys a tacit genomic supremacy. Homo sapiens enjoys a pride of place amidst the animals. Can't seriously argue there. But the laughable "overwhelming demographic supremacy" hogwash--are you trolling, projecting, simple, or what? If one understands the meaning of Christ crucified, your ODS concept is just so much rancid foolishness.

You need to accept the truth!

Your desires are very unchristian.

I'm deeply fascinating as to how you would broad-jump to this completely novel conclusion. Please. By all means. Do share the development of your thought in arriving at this conclusion. As a life-long student of the Bible, I crave the enlightenment that must surely follow.

To "walk away", you are more than welcome to shed your citizenship if it is such a heavy burden.

So, might one say you're somewhat in favor of obviating a Convention of States to allow a peaceful harmonization of all the disparate political expressions of our day?

If this were the 40s or 50s you would be on the same bandwagon against interracial marriage too

Please insert your bogus counterfactual in your orifice of choice. You soil yourself with such.

And then there's your ongoing denial that racism is still widespread.

I have never denied that Affirmative Action is widespread and, in coordination with the media, fanning the flames of racism.
You should come to my totally rainbow church and disabuse yourself of some of your own wrongheadedness.

the action in Afghanistan is as anti constitution as it gets

To try to agree with you, our foreign policy is a dog that lifts its leg all over the Constitution's ideals of limited government. Sure.
But there is no Constitutional template for a "declaration of war"; thus, all that hideously expensive activity (I spent about a year in close observation) is pretty much predicated upon tradition, precedent, and the whim of whatever tool wins the election. If there was an impeachment basis in the Constitution, I'm confident that W would've been cashiered, and probably #OccupyResoluteDesk, too.
The neoconism is mostly bollocks, AFAICT; what's lacking is any sensible, consistent alternative.

Well, being Slashdot, people will use the initialism in their comments, and others will ask what it means, so having it spelled out isn't a problem. It's much better than the summaries that use an initialism without explaining it. There have been many that did that, often with much more obscure references.

Of course, the real answer is that in most cases the summaries are cut-and-paste copies from the article.

You don't need a mechanical engineering degree to be able to flush a toilet. You don't need to go to the Bondurant school to be able to drive a car. You don't need an electrical engineering degree to plug in an electric appliance. And you don't need to know how to code in order to use a computing device.
