    Just pointing out the Mr Sanctimonious MidWesterner was unable to refute the argument made

    Seems like HE made the ad-hominem remark.....I merely made a similar remark back at him......seems like you members of the "americans are immune to laws we don't like crowd" are unable to actually argue your points - not surprising since your arguements boil down to "we're american and we're special".

    •  Attacking someone for their region (6+ / 0-)

      and for completely fictionalized characteristics about the marital history and putative homophobia of their supposed associates, has NOTHING, zip zero zilch,  to do with disputing the rule of law in assassination of declared enemies.  

      It's rude, it's lame, it's lazy, and it's HRable.  In Kos's terms, it's dickish.  You could have the best moral argument in the world, but if you argue it like a dick, your argument goes to waste.

      Acknowledge it to yourself even if you are unable to do so publicly:  what you did is a classic ad hominem attack.  FYI:  that is a vicious and unfounded attack on the character of the messenger as a complete diversion from addressing the merits or lack thereof in the message.
