    I used to think that of him and Bush, but after hearing their post administration interviews, they didn't come across as the sadistic men I thought.

    I don't agree with Cheney's approach to terrorism at all but he didn't over zealously prosecute them out of evil intentions, as much as excessive patriotism and ignorance.

    Yeah, that's not demonization.

    I just hope before he died he was convicted and was able to repent of his sin. Who knows, he may be in the same hell and many of the people he persecuted.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    To ourselves? Where did you get that? You have people who love you, as do I and most people. You are important to them. Not yourself. Them. They will grieve. Taking note of them is important.

    To humans. The human species means nothing to anyone but humans.

    Nothing must get in the way of the leftist narrative. That's modern journalism. "Gay all the time. Everything has to be about gays. Gays trump blacks in the liberal universe."
    Oooooo, another conspiracy theory.

    Good luck with that.

    Again, that makes little sense. I'm only taking about humans. And while your ourselves has two ways of being read, both don't address the point. As humans, we need to recognize the suffering of others if we are to remain human in the context beyond physical definition.

    Wicked. rebuttal dude. Saying that something is childish apparently makes it so. No need to make a case, just state the conclusion.

    He was just an idiot running his mouth. There are lots of those and I will not cheer whenever they die. It's sick, IMO.
