About Me

It does not matter where in the political spectrum one adheres. The same rules of right and wrong, good and evil applies to everyone. Our greatest danger of extinction comes from those that think the rules do not apply to them. www.timws.com

Are you saying

that you are the Chief of the Politically Correct Police?
and the word "illegal" is forbidden because the right-wing nutz use that word?

I am Liberal/Progressive and a little ways Left of Center politically. In no way am I Right Wing or Libertarian.

Sorry, letting other people set the parameters of their life, is itself a Conservative trait. That is what you are attempting to do here.

How does that jibe with this Will Rodgers quoit:
[font color= "blue"]"Democrats never agree on anything, that's why they're Democrats. If they agreed with each other, they'd be Republicans."[/font color]

Who decided "Illegals" is a slur?

I want a name. A contact. Who is the Chief of the Politically Correct Police?
I want to see their edict(s) for myself.
Do they have a web site with the information to clear up the words that are in contention?
Or are we just supposed to take the word of volunteers?

Why can't DU conform to the real world anymore? Why are some doing their best to make DU to be in a echo chamber like bubble?

No we don't.

It is religion that is where the fear is, for everyone, believer of not.
If there really is a kind, loving God, He would not be so egomaniacal as to send us to Hell for not worshiping Him in the correct way, in the correct church, on the correct day. Besides, why are their so many flavors of so many religions, if what any of the many flavors of Christian are suppose do believe in, is true? Does this God not care?
How arrogant is this God? Why would anyone want to take a chance of spending the rest of eternity in this God's Heaven? Do you really want to take a chance of having to sing Hallelujah to a deity that is so insecure that he demands such praise and worship? And do that for the rest of eternity? Heaven is Paradise? Sounds like Hell to me. There has to be a reason why there is no description of Heaven in the Bible. Could that be why?

If this Christian God really is a kind, loving God, how you live your life, how you treat others, how you treat the rest of his creation, would count for far more than just believing in a Deity that demands to be worshiped properly, or "Yur gonna go ta HELL!"
Not believing in Him would be far down the list reasons for eternal punishment. War mongering, greed, plotting to take what is not yours, superiority of self over others, hypocrisy, voting Republican, arrogance, using others for ladder rungs to get to the top. And on and on and on...

We are a social species. We do best when we work together to solve problems. Condoning the Killing of those that do not believe as you do is reason enough to be condemned to Hell for all eternity. You don't condone any killings? Then why do so many here justify Iraq and Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine and many other conflicts? Often because we, the US, are killing non Christians, and YOU are safely far away. Non Christians are expendable. Case in point - While it is often pointed out how many Americans have died in whatever conflict, wherever, the many people have WE have killed in THEIR own country, is downplayed or ignored entirely. Are not these people and their lands, Gods creation too? This pleases your kind, loving God? How?
Why do so many religious people desecrate their God by destroying His creation and the life he created by justifying war?
Over all, down through history, religion has seldom been a positive for for good.

Out of sight, out of mind - Till the next "lone nut" massacre, brings the exact same conversations.

Nothing will change until we realistically deal with the arsenals in too many basements and the people that think they need them for any reason.
The problem is not the lone nut, it is too many guns of all kinds, that is the problem. This country is awash in guns.
We cannot afford to let Sandy Hook go down the memory hole. If we do, those kids would have been murdered in vain. This is truly one time where we need to think of the children for the greater good of the entire country.
This country is so gun happy, we start wars on innocent people, in 3rd world countries, in the name of fighting for our freedom.
What bullshit we fantasize for ourselves! Freedom my ass, it is fear and more fear that is being pedaled in the name of profits for the few. And we don't share in that profit. We only share in the deaths caused.
