    That's still nonsense, and will always be nonsense no matter how many times you repeat it. Nothing we're talking about here or on other threads where you through that up meets that definition.

    For some reason - it has evolved to be the desired strategy of far too many on the right. They proudly proclaim that they know what you believe and support but fall woefully short of being able to actually cite any statements from you proving their allegations and claims. I suspect this is simply part of a dishonest tactic to pigeonhole anyone who disagrees with them into a convenient box so that they can they dispense the usual trite and stereotyped arguments against without having to really deal with the nuances and subtleties of individual positions. Whether this is merely laziness or intellectual dishonesty or a combination of two I will leave for others to say. But when somebody tells me that they know what I believe or support the first challenge I make is to ask them to show evidence of their claims as to my beliefs. It usually drives them crazy as they are unable to do it.

    Eminent domain is the taking of land that belongs to someone. It fits the definition of aggression* precisely.

    * Violation of or damage to another person's body; or trespass upon, damage to, or taking of something owned by another.

    Repetition of the same ridiculous lie over and over and over again is believed by some to constitute debate. And that is sad.

    Try actual news. I'd go with PBS if I were you. But many mainstream actual news sources will be accurate enough. And that is what you should worry about, . . . .Accuracy.

    This would help you a lot.

    You seem to be ignoring the part about fair compensation being paid to the person.

    Now why did you leave that important part out?

    i'd say that that is a spot on analysis

    I repeat, nothing here fits that definition. Nothing. Take a deep breath. Go over what we're actually talking about. Nothing here fits your definition.
