    My wife is a cancer survivor, so obviously I hate cancer. I guess that means I hate hate, which does present a conundrum. BTW, I love Snickers.

    Which definition? The un's definition includes "intimidating them or a third party". Im sorry, but if that is the case nearly every policing agency in the country tortures people. ,

    Its all inclusive. So we should just say pretty please? When they still refuse?

    Are you confusing drone attacks with torture?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    No hatred for leftists, though it's shares the same area code as 'contempt'. Yes, it was reflexive in a way. I wondered why leftists are still trying to make political hay about Sarah Palin. It's as old and tired as all leftist ideas, and the absolute absence of self awareness is what makes this vaudeville-like routine so pathetic.
    I wasn't making political hay about anyone. Just saying that her return would be comedy gold for SNL. As I said, context is your friend.

    Then we should all remove 'evil' from our lexicon, since there there no way to prove that anyone is evil.

    He's not gonna get prosecuted, none of them are, let it go.

    What needs to happen is end these costly, mostly ineffective torture programs and move on.

    No, the dictionary's definition. Or the UN - a charter that we are signed onto and have agreed to.

    You would think a group as old school as conservatives would want to honor their commitments.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
