    Is that what you call defending the working class from attack these days?

    Catawba, I hope you know this argument can be used by your opponent to great effect, as well?

    So, people should not stand up for others against injustice???

    No, no. Of course not.

    Just... realize it's a two-way street on this issue.

    An economy needs money to function.
    Ours has escaped to Arabia, Mexico, China, Japan, Afraghastan, Iraq, Kuwait, anyplace other than America....
    Is anyone aware that we have had 30 to 50 years of trade inbalance ?
    Of course, the tax rates must be reset to those of the Clinton Era....
    And, another example - we have had 50 to 100 years of fire prevention - have any fire departments shrunk accordingly ?

    *Yawn* .... :
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm flattered that you think so much of my posts to reprint them twice! Thanks!

    Um .. you seriously think that the only reason someone would not reply right away is because they feel like they have been beaten? Do you have a job dude? Do you have any responsibilities or a life? I don't suppose those would be valid reasons for postponing a conversation? You should look up the definition of delusional, it could help your arguments.
