    Good god, why not legalize instead. Drug dealers DO NOT deserve the death penalty. Just like the drug war doesn't warrant the loss of our rights (gun, privacy, etc).
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    It's the same type of agreement I give the people who rant on street corners about how Jesus is coming soon.

    Ah, I see. "They", meaning black people, keep electing the wrong people to DC by not voting.

I have 2 friends who are both career women who didn't want to get married, but both wanted children, and each had one, technically out of wedlock. They were both in their mid-30s and cared for those children well. The being born without a father thing sometimes works.
    Might make good thread material there.

    Just want to point out that being born to an unwed mother is not the same thing as not having a father.

Poor people, in general, treat their own like they are getting too 'high brow' if they try to improve themselves. It is very discouraging for a teen to experience that sort of emotional beat down. I was lucky, and was surrounded by a different kind of family (though far from perfect, for sure). I appreciate that fact almost every day.
    You can find individuals who might, you cannot point to an entire culture that does except the ghetto black culture. They would do so much better if they'd just get rid of it entirely and adopt a culture that encourages self-responsibility and upward mobility.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Then you should stop being in such denial. Blind faith is absurd. Put up or shut up.

    Why? What positive comes from legalizing drugs? That's like saying why not legalize murder. Prove the net benefit.

    Someone is going to get elected. If you want someone to represent you and your interests, you have to vote for them. If you do not, then the people who go are not going to represent you. It's not that hard to understand.
