    Oops, I forgot. Private Propery rights trumps everything. My bad.

    I have seen videos of Japanese herding dolphins into netted coves then clubbing them and loading them into trucks like cord wood as they scream in fear and agony. Makes me so mad I want to nuke them again.

    Ramming whaling ships = not arresting slaves.

    We have a winner.

    Nothing hyperbolic about it at all. You would have turned the escaped slaves back over to their masters, who after all owned the escaped 'property'. I suppose it's a waste of time asking you how you would have treated the Civil Rights demonstrators in the South - you know, the ones that violated the sacred 'Property rights' of those owners of whites only businesses.

    Yeah, but I'm told this all involves the property rights of the whalers. Let's see - whale ships = Property; Slaves = Property.

    And there's the matter of those abolitionists breaking the Law! Just like those 'liberal' protesters and their 'liberal' ships!

    You guys continue to amuse.

    You have to break some eggs to make an omelet. Yep, I get it. You are very clear that your moral interpretations of right and wrong trump all laws.

    Well, I'm willing to state categorically that the Fugitive Slave Act was wrong and the Underground Railroad was right. I'm also willing to state categorically that Segregation was wrong and Civil Rights Protests and Actions to end it were Right. Guilty as charged.
