    DAMMIT - the second "D" choice in the poll should be for a "no" vote.

    Can a MOD fix that???

    Correction:

    The US has authorized torture but slapped a different label on it.

    Isn't that spiffy? Call it something else and you don't have to admit anything.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Aren't the mods great?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yep.

    Next we'll start assassinations and call it "enhanced impeachment." Totally legal.

    I love how it's all the "can't trust the government to do anything" types who are 100% faithful to the government when the government says "this is a bad person so they don't have any rights."

    It does seem that way.

    Which might also suggest, rather strongly, that the US still does. Right?

    More than likely, yes.

    Or, if not, then we outsource the job to our "friends" in nations that have no qualms about torture.
