    now, i understand. you don't believe in the rule of law. people can be convicted and punished, whether or not we can prove their guilt. because we can trust our intuitions and our leaders to do what's right, even without their being able to prove that they're right. got it. thanks.

    •  Piss off. (0+ / 0-)

      You're just calling me a bad person to make yourself feel better, because you're not interested in or capable of considering the other side of the argument.

      I've met a lot of people like you.  They're mostly wingnuts, and they rarely bring anything useful to a debate, either.

        i'm calling you someone who has no problem with people being detained indefinitely without due process. i'm sure you have met plenty of wingnuts. they don't believe in due process, either.

        •  Well, you're wrong. Quote me the part where... (0+ / 0-)

          I said such a thing, or apologize.

          I've raised questions, and since you can't bring yourself even to think about them, you've done what dumb political thinkers always do: put a label on me, regardless of its accuracy, and then told yourself that you don't have to think about what my sort of people say.

          A sad performance.

          •  you keep repeating yourself (0+ / 0-)

            and you keep avoiding the real point that you're making. i'll stand by the concept of rule of law, and you can stand by whatever circular illogic you enjoy.

            •  So, you have nothing to back up your statement. (0+ / 0-)

              So you just say it again.

              I trust that you would have happily thrown anything I said in opposition to due process and the rule of law back in my face, if you could have found any, but you couldn't.

              So, instead of acknowledging that like a man, you continue with your hissy fit.

              You're a sad like worm of a human being, aren't you?

              Have you considered the possibility that I'M NOT MAKING THAT POINT?

              I'm not a shy person.  If I have a point to make, I make it.  To a more honest, intelligent person than yourself, the fact that I haven't made the point you're so desperate to assign to me would indicate that it's not my point.

              But what would you know about how an honest, intelligent person would debate?
