  •  How very open minded (0+ / 0-)

    for you to speak of "They."  You might as well be the Tutsi talking of the Hutu; dehumanize and objectify at every turn.  "They are not like us, they are monsters."  

    Keep your laws off my body. I don't care what you do to my neighbor.

      and even worse than that. Hopefully you don't know any.

      But unfortunately, as we found out most horribly in the previous administration, "compassionate conservative" is an oxymoron.

      If it's
      Not your body
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      AND it's
      None of your damn business!

      •  Well of course there are. (0+ / 0-)

        There are also neo-nazis, who gives a shit?  The important part is to not use blanketing statements, that's what separates you from the Tutsi's, or the Natzis, or the whatevers.  Saying anyone who's conservative is "bad," and anyone who agrees with you is "good," which is what it seems you're doing, is blanketing an entire people who see the same problems as you, see some different solutions, because they've came about them through different means; means seated in other ways of thinking than you.  

        To me, saying someone's brain-chem makeup is different than yours and therefore inferior, is like saying Africans are a brutish, neanderthal people because of the color of their skin.  

        It's horsecrap, and so is being racist.
