    We couldn't get to the polls FAST enough to vote for Reagan.

    Of course, the media is so invested in this CURRENT turkey that they've failed to inform TODAY'S graduates that he's given them the slowest recovery from a recession in American history, and as a former professor, he's ALL ABOUT them having ENORMOUS student debt, so his professor buds can make 6 figure salaries, funded on the back of student debt, from a "helpful" government.

    He's playing them all for suckers, and because of their naivety, they love him for it....
    Hey, I feel weird defending Carter, but most of the major policy changes attributed to Carter this days were actually introduced by Richard Nixon. Hell, he abolished the gold standard and went as far as direct price controls, Soviet-style. Yet he was elected and re-elected by a landslide of epic proportions, on the strength of older voters. Making bad choices is not limited to the young age, especially when options are limited.

    Didn't you yourself say this "I am not God, therefore it is not my place to judge." or something to that effect?

    Pedophilia should be considered sex with (or love of) pre-pubescent children. Not that other things shouldn't be crimes, but we shouldn't call it pedophilia unless pre-pubescence is involved.

    when should a person be considered adult ?
    Personally, I think for some purposes, it should be 18, and for others, 21 or even higher. I think we kind of need an in-between stage where kids become partial guardians of themselves, rather than all at once on the 18th birthday.

    thats what l mean
    You said what is the difference if it is a person a little bit older. Well, if there are no age of consent laws in place, then a 30-year-old man could most certainly have a sexual relationship and a marriage with a 10-year-old child.

    In some cultures it's done for a very specific purpose - polyandry (1 wife - many husbands) in some regions of India is adhered to between one wife and brothers. The brothers aren't married to each other - and they are permitted to marry one wife so when they have children they won't be expected to divide the family 'farm' up between them all . . .and so on. It allows a family to support itself on their land and subsist without conflicts of property and land disputes and without further reducing the size of the land the family owns.

    If one does not want to engage in said practice - they have to move and find their own land. . .which is not as easy as it sounds: because most farm able and livable land is already owned.

    we dont allow either

    but they defend polygamy because those people are consent to do it

    Right. We were talking about ADULTS consenting to a polygamous marriage. Not children who are under the legal age of consent.

    10 year old girl is adult ?

    l dont even support any marriage until they reach a necessary emotional maturity

    anyone can understand what l mean

    however you are the one who accuses me of lying

    nobody forced you to have sex when you were 16

    why dont you accept it was your decision or fault
    whatever
