    What response is necessary? You didn't offer a point or an argument, you just leveled an accusation. This isn't a court of law, and so I'm obligated to offer no retort.

    What do you want me to say, "nuh uh?"

    In any case, I do not deny what I said. Rather, I support it all the more because of your reply. History belongs to those who take the reins and force progress down the throats of those unwilling or unable to see it through. I don't ask forgiveness because I have the resolve to question the Western consensus of democratic government as an inviolable moral imperative.

    Thank you for positively confirming everything I said.

    No, what you said is that I'm apt to massacre a group of innocuous religious believers.

    That's patently false.

    Didn't say a word about "massacre." That would be more intemperance from you.

Extinction is not a legitimate option.

    Getting this country back on track means getting people to behave "correctly". If force is the only way the government can accomplish this, so be it.
    How can one not think this is the path to socialism or communism?

    So what if it is? It is necessary for the continued prosperity and strength of our nation.

    There are other flavors of authoritarianism besides Socialism. Socialists only care that poor people have enough box dinner to stay fat.

It is an institutionalized problem. If your answers havent worked for 30 years...you might want to rethink the problem. And we arent talking about poor people...underpriveleged...we are talking obesity ACROSS THE SPECTRUM.
    It requires more than Sesame Street and Zoom answers.
    Exactly. President Kennedy's Physical Fitness Challenge. I was one of the first kids in that, as I was five when he died. It was a start.

    I don't think it's anybody's business but each individual. But I believe that the First Lady is not doing any harm, and she may be doing some good. You really think she's doing harm?

    I've been a lot less active at this board, and you know why? Because it's depressing watching people just slap the **** out of each other day after day, making no attempt to meet in the middle. It's a huge waste of time. I really liked this forum. Obviously; I haven't actually left. But I can't entertain stupid and stubborn near as well as I used to.

    Because it can also be a path to totalitarianism and fascism.. coercive government and socialism don't always go hand and hand. A coercive government can exist within any economic ideology.
