    And Turtle, please get a clue. I am being accused of telling somebody that in this discussion on property rights - I supposedly accused somebody of supporting slavery because they support property rights.

    Review the discussion. See what Thrilla is accusing me of. That is what you are defending.

    You don't emphasize value on personal property rights.

    Considering that you think we should crawl in thanks to you for not taking EVERYTHING, yeah, it does it pretty well.

    And Turtle, please get a clue. I am being accused of telling somebody that in this discussion on property rights - I supposedly accused somebody of supporting slavery because they support property rights.
    That is what you said to me in no short terms when you said the slave owners would cheer me on.

    I accept property rights as rights. I accept other rights as rights also.

    Where is the problem in anyone saying that?
