    Strange, lawyers are usually much better writers and critical thinkers than you are. They are trained to examine both sides of an argument--apply logic and reason.

    Every conservative lawyer that I know has a pretty good understanding of basic economics--yet in the other thread, you weren't able articulate anything but broad talking points.

    all from top schools-the BA and the MS were from (at the time # 1 program in the nation)
    So, then you must be very bright and successful.

    Explain this stat from your link:

    VOTERS who made $100,000 or More -- 47% Dems - 52%Gop

    one with honors, one with high honors

    and you can claim what you want but your lack of ability to understand the obvious suggests you engage in emotobabbling rather than critical thinking
    What's painfully obvious, turtle, is you didn't go to any top school, you don't have a law degree, and you like to pretend.

    Your education beyond high school consists of talk radio and fox news.

    I read you like book. A comic-tragedy about the fantasy lives people create on the anonymous internet. Rev can be a millionaire and you get to be in Mensa.

    But even a state college bum like myself can smell your pile of crap lies a mile away...

    Be well. It's been fun. You're mildly entertaining and spin a good story... JD

    another person claimed I didn't go to lawschool

    if you are sure about your assertion then back it up with some money. I will donate 10,000 dollars to Debate politics if you can prove I didn't go to say Yale and an Ivy league law school

    If I can you will donate that amount to DP

    you game?

    do you labor under the delusion that if someone doesn't buy into your liberal psychobabble, they must listen to Rush?

    I think Rush is a lunatic. Same with Glenn Beck. Same with Sarah Palin. I doubt many real conservatives give any of them the time of day.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Here they are, the six principles of shariah:

    1. The right to the protection of life.
    2. The right to the protection of family.
    3. The right to the protection of education.
    4. The right to the protection of religion.
    5. The right to the protection of property (access to resources).
    6. The right to the protection of human dignity.

    Really scary stuff!!!

    There you go again, dodging another question.

    Why do you keep doing that? Just answer the f-ing question.

    And, you don't have $10,000... but if you want to scan your degree and PM me your state bar info, I'll check it out.

    Here's the thing -- you don't write or talk like someone who went to even a 3rd rate law school. Being able to write and think and argue a position are what they teach in law school. You lack those skills, as far as I can tell.

    You want to prove me wrong, address just one point w/o using some Rush-Hannity talking points. Write a paragraph or two proving you actually know something, because all I see are bumper sticker posts.

    Your other option is to PM your state bar info and then I'll say -- I'll be damned, he did actually go to a law school. And my next question will be, what the flark happened to you? All those years of sharpening critical thinking and reasoning skills and now your just a poster of bumper sticker talking points on DP...??

    So, my suggestion would be convince us you went to law school by actually demonstrating some lawyer-like writing abilities.

    IF there was nothing disturbing ABOUT Sharia law - and if at it's basic level it is really equivalent to American law - then they wouldn't NEED a separate court system to deal out their version of justice, now would they?

    We have our one ruling document for our country - the Constitution. It already deems what is and isn't acceptable as far as a court of law goes.

    Re: What are you most afraid of:

    I voted for the "Sharia Law coming to the U.S." poll option.

    I don't really think "Sharia Law" stands a chance of becoming part of US law any time soon (was that 100 years someone mentioned?)

    But the possiblity that some or all aspects of it have the potential to does worry me - slightly.

    That said, I don't have that much knowledge of what, precisely, "Sharia Law" is - Most of my knowledge comes from negative stories about abuses against women that happen under it and are accepted by it.

    I'm not really afraid of the "GROUND ZERO MOSQUE OMGWTF!!!!!!!!111" bit at all.

    IF all the negative hype were true, I would be worried about it - but I'm 99.999% sure it's all hype.
