    Re: House votes to strike down D.C. law banning reproductive discrimination

    If I understand the DC law correctly, Right to Life, as an employer, could not discriminate against in hiring/firing an employee who acted contrary to the very being of the organization. Likewise, the Catholic Church couldn't discriminate in the hiring/firing of a teacher in a Catholic school.

    If I do understand it correctly, the law was likely unconstitutional and Congress saved the District a lot of time and legal fees by just canning it.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Thank you so much for sharing your radical, stupid, and hateful opinion that I don't care about one bit.

    That is because rational and intelligent people do not really give a crap what the ignorant believe. They tend to make decisions based on facts.

    I could not care less what you care about. I was just pointing out the utter stupidity of your post and position. Naturally you would not like that.

    If by pointing out you mean just slapping negative adjectives on things you don't like, yeah, okay.

    It's great talking to you like this, so productive. I sure hope you keep at this.

    My likes are not really that relevant, but facts are and it is also a fact that employers do not share your extremist views and they do not share them because any rational examination of them results only in one conclusion, that they are born of ignorance and hate. They are devoid of any intelligence and indicate lack of education. Sorry that these adjectives cause you angst but they are apt.

    It's great talking to you like this, so productive.
    No one who does not agree with you has ever had a productive discussion with you.

    I sure hope you keep at this.
    Only to the extent where facts need to be shown.

    Sure. Let me know when you want to start showing facts. It should be a refreshing change of pace for you.

    You could not make your contempt for the Constitution of this country more clear. But your description of yourself as a socialist makes the reason for that contempt obvious. The Constitution designs a very weak central government, only strong enough to prevent anarchy, and that is the very opposite of the centralized control socialism requires. You are living in the wrong country, in that sense, so you would like to refashion it to suit your taste, and to hell with the Constitution.

    Of course the authors of the Constitution were well aware it might from time to time need to be amended as conditions changed. That is exactly why they included right within it the processes for amending it--something novel at that time. Article V is devoted to those processes.

    No one who understood the most basic history of the Constitution would even suggest that the men who wrote it believed it was anything but a very imperfect compromise--not least because it allowed slavery. But through amendments, slavery was ended and full suffrage provided. You would just like to skip the difficulties of amendment, and take the shortcut of lawless, arbitrary rule--or, to use another term for it, tyranny. And your president, having a taste for rule by diktat, shares that wish.

    I think you might have a rather queer view of what libertarian means. Why should a libertarian approve elective abortion? It seems odd to me.
