Ladies and Gentlemen: bfd

I try not to even read bfd's posts, let alone respond to them.

Is there anyone out there who believes that I deserve that kind of treatment?

You could argue successfully that Carter encouraged and abated Militant Islam in our time by his non-reaction to the takeover of our Embassy in Iran. Do any of you remember that bullshit?

In addition, they will have to deal with the realization that instead of helping them, their Arab "friends" have been using them to justify their own failing in their own countries. A comprable example may be the Soviet citizens who longed for the peaceful days of Stalin's rule after his death. It ...

How do you bear it, Steve G?

Did you at least enjoy the pretty sight this afternoon/morning in Palestine of anarchy at its best? Who will fill that power vacuum?

It is more feminist for a woman to take control of her body _before_ her knickers drop. The anti-choice folks overlap almost entirely with the people who want to do away with birth control (either entirely, or for those not in the kinds of relationships they deem valid). Not that I agree with your ...

Yes, the right to be killed by your mother. First, a clump of cells is just about as alive as your toenail. It is convenient to think of it that way, but it is just a belief, no more rational than any other belief. Second, its the right for women to have control over their bodies. Should the govern...

Wikipedia: Why is there so much vandalism?

How childish. I started watching the George W. Bush page. Anonymous vandals keep messing with it, and named members keep reverting it. The vandalization and fixing happen over and over. Just now, I saw four hits and reversions in as many minutes. Are the vandals trying to damage GWB, or Wikipedia? h...

The election was certainly fixed. How else did Kerry get to 48% - there is no other reasonable explanation. Very nicely done, Amused.

I'd actually interpret it a little differently Teela, I feel that Reagan was simply saying that it's impossible to regulate morality, that morality must come as a result of one's own spiritual quest.
