    I'm guessing zero. Hell, we declared a state of national emergency a few years ago when Singapore was going to flog some kid.

    Do you also interpret the Constitution without a grasp of the founding philosophies?


    You basically just apply your own BS to anything and thereby dismiss it, ay? Do you do that will all opposing ideas? I bet that keeps ones intellectual understanding very very small (ignorance is bliss), but I think it's sad someone would do such a thing.

    It is convenient that you can create a dogma, then create a cop out to explain the dogma. Nice work if you can get it.

    Team BO has responded. If they are condemning.....you know the drill.


    U.S. condemns apparent beheading of US hostage.....

    The U.S. State Department says it is "sickened" by a video that purports to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff, adding that the intelligence community is working to authenticate the video. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).....snip~

    Metaphysical expression is a fraud, you hate it all. We get it. No one is allowed to discuss metaphysics or you get angry and irrational.


    Sad.

    Ideally, yeah, I agree. But inevitably we'd be criticized for "ignoring" it too. Something BO doesn't need/want with the midterms coming up. Ah, politics.

    Also, SW Virginia, huh? Nice to see someone else representin', as the kids say.
    Be skeptical of anyone who wears a political label - party or ideology - with pride. Most of our problems are because people love to "debate" (it isn't debate, but they pretend it is), but are not interested in developing solutions. Solutions require empathy, thought, and compromise, and most folks aren't interested.

    Everyone hates metaphysics at some point, most of us grow up.
