    Of course it does. We are not discussing a government proposed repercussion for actions deemed vital to either a child, or the state. Therefore his argument is in regards to policy, and not justice.

    Is the policy advocated by the Justice of the Piece racially motivated, where race -- not the ability to have children -- is the so called "independent variable" in Goob's argument?

    You know what that means
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    If health care was in any way relevant to this topic, you would have demonstrated how in this post.

    But you did not, which only means you know health-care not relevant in any way, and therefore there is no irony.

    Please just admit to lying so that we know you have some character.

    IF interracial marriages don't last long, than if I were in his position I would require the couple to attend pre-marital counseling before wedding them.
    So then you are for justices being able to deny marrying citizen's based on their personal opinion of a statical stereotype?

    Let's look at a like scenario. If a justice believes rich people spoil their children and that being spoiled isn't a healthy environment for a child he/she should be able to deny the couple, who may never spoil their child, their ability to be married?

    I'm of mixed race and my life is far from ruined. That's a stupid comment. The only problems I ever had beacuse of my mixed race were some fights in high school, with black kids, because I wasn't, "black enough", or because I, "acted white". I think that in the long run, being confronted with that attitude did me a favor.

    I have never used any of those terms, nor mulatto. They recall the days of the Quadroon Ball in the antebellum South to me, and as such, carry a heavy negative connatation. I've never heard anybody use any of those terms either, including the term mulatto.

    Maybe it's a regional thing, but I hate all those terms.

    I never once in this thread implied that the guy is racist. What I did say is that his thought process was odd, to say the least. And he did not only say that "those types of marriages don't last", he also implied that due to the way things are in the South the children would suffer. His main intent is to protect kids from the effed up society he lives in. According to him, of course.

    If I were a Southerner, I'd be majorly insulted. Just saying.

    Please stop trolling.
    Dude, get mad at the JOP. He's the one implying that Southern society is so inherently racist and beyond hope, he'd rather not facilitate the birth of any mixed raced children.

    Probably because you've enver even heard of them, before I mentioned them.

    BTW, high yellow and red bone are terms used by blacks to describe mixed race persons. You never hear whites use those terms.

    That's a big friggin' IF , Pal....

    The guy's a racist and anyone who says otherwise is either ignorant or a racist too (which imples ignorant).

    "I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way," Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. "I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else."
    Jeez, Jerry, read the flippin' story before you open your mouth and stick your foot in it.
