Re: Nancy Pelosi supports ‘collateral damage’

This is not Hyperbole... Of course it is. All of your frantic pearl clutching is hyperbole. Moreover, it's disingenuous hyperbole, since you ignore all evidence that your claims are inaccurate, while simultaneously pretending that nobody on your side would ever behave the same way. You are the post...

Re: Violence from the tolerant left - fact or fiction?

First off, when Antifa takes to the street it's generally to march in opposition to literal Nazis, White Supremacists, and Klansmen. I don't much care for Antifa - I think they're mostly just hooligans and that they do far more harm than good - but I'm also strongly opposed to fricken Nazis. So how ...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

You seem to be taking a specific stand while I am taking a general one. I don't care if this guy gets the position or not, makes ZERO difference to me. You seem to take the view that the END ( this guy not getting the supreme court position) justifies the means ( simple, one person, unproven and un...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

When you call abortion "women's reproductive rights", I'm going to call you out on it. Murdering an unborn human being is not a "reproductive right", just like owning another human being is not "property rights". It's disingenuous at best. And that's giving you the benefit of doubt. I know your pos...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

Nope, no links to "the plan." Just reading the writing on the wall. And that eerie connection only exists as conservative hyperbole. Your contention that a fetus is a person isn't backed by any scientific or medical consensus. It's a religious argument. And at this point I'd be grateful if we could ...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

According to some, the court of public opinion is the only one the matters. You still haven't told me how any of this is supposed to work. Whatever. It seems like what you want is for me to admit that everyone is treating Kavanaugh very unfairly and they should give him the benefit of the doubt, bu...

Re: Violence from the tolerant left - fact or fiction?

The guy mailing out castor beans appears to be mentally ill. I'm not sure where you get the idea that he represents "the left." It's almost as if you're just grabbing any act of violence not committed by a Nazi or a Klansman and attributing it to liberals in order to bolster an extremely weak argume...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

Very disingenuous comment, Ed, especially the underlined - because you morphed an unproven assumption about his past into how conservatives would consider him. That wasn't my intention. What I meant was that the majority of Republican voters don't care whether or not the accusations are true. I kno...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

Ed, to make this simple: Do YOU believe that presumption of innocence is an inalienable right? Within the context of a trial, sure, I believe that the presumption of innocence is a right. With a trial there are rules, and those rules can be followed an enforced. Juries can be instructed to follow t...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

Ah, so you believe that a person does NOT have the right of presumption of innocence? I believe that I've asked you three times what you're talking about, and you've yet to respond. Whatever. Here are my thoughts: The Constitution gives Kavanaugh the right to the presumption of innocence and a tria...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

I am stating that one of our legal ( and inalienable) rights is the presumption of innocent UNTIL PROVEN guilty. This isn't a communist or fascist regime in which one is guilty until proven innocent. In a court of law, during a trial, yes. But where does that apply in this context? What Constitutio...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

When a person is accused of ANYTHING, innocence must be maintained until proven guilty, especially when all there is are allegations. Period. Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all legal rights that are owed to a person. It is not JUST about a trial. What does that eve...

Re: No comments on Kavanaugh???

C'mon, Ed! Now you're not being objective at all! Can't you tell the difference between a pattern of accusations that can't be substantiated, that have many problems, and in facts that we can examine and know? So many are asserting what they can't know as if it were the unquestionable truth. What I...
