    Same with wearing boston gear to yankees stadium, you can build all the strawman you want, I am just laughing at your analogy.
    Not even close to a strawman fallacy. Walking through a crowd to get somewhere is not inciting violence as apst tried to proclaim. Even though I know new yorkers do love their teams wearing an opposing team's jersey to a game does not justify them committing violence against them. Again you're defending an indefensible position

    That wouldn't make them proglobal warming jerry. You might want to try this again. Actually wanting to do something about the environment and stop global warming would make them anti-global warming. Care to try again?

    Same tactics? Really when did I encourage people to break the law? Now you're just backpeddling. You're trying to rationalize an illegal action to get your means. I've never advocated breaking the law. Do you want to try again Jerry?

    So what else would you do to defeat what you perceive to be universal health care?

    Jerry, would you dress up in a chicken suit to do your part to tear down the Healthcare bill?

    This little gem by Jerry is the most enlightening thus far:

    This person happened to be on the pro-UHC side, so when she refuses to oppose UHC through honest debate, it is then always right and just to shut her up at every opportunity.
    So evidently, it would seem that in Jerry's mind, honest debate consists of:

    You should agree with me, otherwise its perfectly acceptable to shout you down and shut you up at every opportunity.

    I guess that would be the Savage - Hannity Debate Format.

    No, the OP made this about her being disabled, as though that mere fact makes it somehow worse than if she weren't.

    Right, the mere fact that you are heckling and mocking someone when they are taking about their disability and the medical costs associated with it makes it worse than just the typical shouting down of people at these meetings (which is bad enough).

    As I said, I had no idea that condemning douche bags that engaged in that kind of activity would be controversial. Am I the only one on the whole forum that comes back occasionally and says "hey I thought about it, and I have changed my mind".

    Man, I am so glad I can barely comprehend that.

    And that is as a fellow nerd.
