the "freedom" to get tested when anybody wants it or to be ordered to get shots ?


Yep. I was only joking, of course, because your questions showed such an obvious contrast: how the rhetoric of 'freedom' is really meaningless until applied to specific issues, and then every issue has complexities that can't be simplified by vague statements such as 'freedom is good'. Looks like neither Germany or the United States is completely "free".

Good debate topic for someone: "It's reasonable for a government to require some limitation of citizen's freedoms, to ensure quality public services."

they claim us to be free but we aren.t
what does freedom really mean?
tp you to me?

is freedom of speech really granted?
i really doubt it!

even some basic rights are restricted for a "higher good" mostly for the benefit of the government


sorry that i didn.t get the joke
sometimes i am stupid

 


something sweet

Silly orange, you are way more smart than you are stupid. I am stupid sometimes, too, as is everyone.

The last judgment for Round Two is finally posted...

Congrats to both Fighters.

Round Three will commence on Monday, April 6th at around 12 noon PST.

I am unavailable this Saturday and possibly Sunday. As well, semper is still recuperating...so a weekend for everyone to breathe seems like a viable all around strategy...

WOW!



Well done 44ss, that is a mighty champion you have dethroned!

And well done Ian, you have worn the title with pride, dignity, and grace.

We can only hope the next champion is half as worthy as you my friend.

It was.

Just wait.

Of course, I have to start from scratch since I don't remember all of it. But it will rise from the ashes and choke you.

Sans the really cool brackets graphic, Round Three/Quarter Final Match-ups...

Heike vs The Vagabond

44soulslayer vs chissler

schrodingers dog vs americandingbat

Maxmars vs TruthWithin

I'm not seeing a guarentee in any of those fights...much less a favorite to go all the way. As well, we have two, yup, two undefeated Fighters in the running as well as the longest winning streak on the line (for the second consecutive round...
)

And let the smack talking begin...as well as the side bets...


The traditional, "Thank God MemoryShock Is Not Participating" area is, as usual, available for those who would like to reflect on their prospects for the now vacated championship...(which will remain with Ian until the last Fighter standing)...
