    It explains context, which he s missing.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Don't you understand I have no investment in the word aggression. It simply doesn't apply here.

The only legitimate recognition of those terms is original intent, otherwise other predisposed "interpretations" are ascribing that document with things never indicated, and which the people never agreed upon, and never ratified.
    As a legal term, you're correct. But in the world, something established, done from day one, sets the course of things (precedence for lack a better word). And it does work tis way. There's nothing new here. Nothing that hasn't already been challenged. So, the pattern, the functional way of things has long since been established (precedence). I'll accept a better word if you have one. The concept s what's important here.

    Okay, so you know what is NOT aggression, but you can't tell us what IS aggression.

    I know he word is plain ass exaggeration. To give it any credence is to be part if the problem. I won't do that. Tone it down and speak about the issue in realistic terms, and we can continue.

    Nope. But curious as to what you think was my claim.

    Well, sadly, we can't continue to debate if you won't agree to define your terms.

    It's not the term that is the problem. You're coming at the problem from the wrong end. We could agree what aggression is, but calling not getting a tip aggression or having to service some you're prejudice against simply doesn't qualify. Neither does getting a fine. It's you unreason application of the word that is at issue. Not the word.

    The fourteenth amendment would only deal with the titles that deal with the state, so really I have no idea what you are talking about. Furthermore, your claim about the founders trying to form a strong government with the constitution is false. They were trying to form a federal government "stronger" than the AOC, not a strong federal government. Really, I can't find one thing you said that is true.
