Everyone here knows how babies are made whether that be through the physical act of sex or in a lab.
then why did you find it
necessary to bring it up ??
nope, no confusion on my part.
If he has the capability to kill a person with his hands he has the right
given the need, yes, he has that right.
yes, birth = a 'right' to life
why is that so difficult to comprehend ?
do you believe someone or something else GIVES you rights or determines what they are ??
if so, it really isn't me who is confused.
this has to be one of the best strawman arguments ever
If one is born with the desire to go into a school and shoot 25 young children, then does it mean they were born with the right to do it?
not sure if i should just laugh or actually respond ...
ok, i'll give ya this much ... "desires" are not "rights", k?
nor do they equal 'rights', ever.
that's the problem, you and others are of the opinion that your desires are more important than our right to life.
now that's absurd.
wow, a document to permit those inside to breathe fresh
are you serious ??????????
see, that's the conundrum.
we all have a right to breathe ... however, considering places like LA and China and their smog, the question then becomes, do they have a 'right'
to breathe fresh
there really should be no question whatsoever, yet there is ... why ??
acutally dear, i chose the stinkiest fart analogy because that is behavior that is within 'social norms' (no contract needed, remember?)
point is, i might be embarrassed that everyone left the room, however, it is still their right to breathe air of their choosing ... whether pungent or
fresh, regardless how their behavior makes me 'feel'.
wow, what kind of litigious utopia do you foresee ??
if ever there is 'punishment' associated with farts, it won't be happening in a Republic.
what makes you think i missed it ??
and what makes you think i'm here all the time ??
just because the moniker is signed-in, doesn't mean i'm even on property
i think you are being a wee bit too presumptuous.
any one of several could be posting ... nice try though
(do you even know which of us you are currently addressing?)
the only realistic element of this 'issue' is the unwillingness of the opposition to offer ANY compromise of value.
natural rights are always above and beyond the laws of tyrants, why wouldn't they be ??
and what makes you think i've contradicted myself in any manner ??
huh ???? foreigners and psychopaths ?? where did that come from?
are you attacking the truth with rhetoric ??
i don't understand your statement.
please, if you don't believe the truth, show me any exmaple of some other method used ... when you break it down to the realistic and basic
components, you have either persuasion or force.
with equal force at my side, persuasion is the only option you or any other has, isn't it ??
who said the interaction was ever an oppositional nature ??
we can agree amicably if your method of 'persuasion' is good enough.
what do you think 'bribery' depends on ???
the method or manner of persuasion.
ever heard of anyone taking a bride under force ??
[yeah, i can see it now ... "you'll take this million or i'll blow your dang head off"
... thanks for the chuckle]
i'm curious, what makes you think any form of persuasion is confrontational ??
ppl are persuaded every hour of every day.
[even in their sleep]
marketing capitalizes on persuasion.
politicians maximize profits via persuasion.
police even operate on a foundation of persuasion.
and please don't get me started on church and their methods of persuasion ... so, how are any of these interactions confrontational? (well ok, with
those except the police)
cooperation and empathy are not 'rights' either, nor can they be legislated.
why can't you stay on topic ??
btw, how does cooperation occur without persuasion ??
oh, so you're ok with casting out those who don't fit your model ??
what does France have to do with the US ??
well, even with all that improvement, it sure didn't help Princess Diana at all, did it ?
whenever did i ask such a question ??
"how were you conceived?"
ya know, most parents don't tell a lie and then run away but hey, if that's your style, enjoy.
and here i thought this was supposed to be a civil
... silly me.
