I guess I was naive and unsuspecting of the dynamics of the place. I did not realize that when you take issue with one small thing that a single libertarian posted that soon the entire gang would be at your doorstep ready to take issue with and pounce on anything you said. Truthfully, I had never experienced that before on a website discussing politics. So now I am warned and have learned that lesson. The other thing I want to thank you for is the lesson that libertarians are now firmly and unmistakably on the far right wing of the American political spectrum on most major issues of the day and have found strong allies in very conservative republicans who watch their back and are happy to join in on the attack of the non believers. On other sites I visited, this was not the case and libertarians often went to great pains to demonstrate that they were special, they were different, they could not be stereotyped on the normal political continuum the way the rest of us mere mortals could be. But here there seems to be a very natural, easy and friendly alliance with right wing republicans and right wing libertarians working seamlessly together to do battle with their hated enemies - 'the leftists'... whatever that may mean to them.

    And I agree with Harshaw that it is highly entertaining to watch. The very idea that people who obviously pat themselves on the back for thinking they are smart will argue for over ten pages simply because they cannot readily admit that judges interpret the law because one of their members attacked the hated left for doing the same thing - that is indeed highly entertaining. The whole thing reminded me of some phony wrestling match where one man had to go up against a five man tag team for an hour. It was entertaining and revealing. But in the end, you will all take comfort in a numerical error made in my post and ignore the larger reality that it was one of your owns stubbornness and bullheadedness in refusing to acknowledge the same thing in himself that he accused his enemies of. You will ignore the several outside links I provided you with stating quite clearly that courts and judges routinely interpret the law as one of their powers. You will ignore the links and authoritative sources i provided defining the power of Judicial review and how it differs from mere interpretation. Instead you will raise your flag above your clubhouse and slap each other on the back because I made a numerical error and that is enough for all of you to proudly proclaim your victory over the hated non believer.

    Its a free country so enjoy your right to do so. But I do thank you for some illuminating lessons.

    You can address that answer directly, or you can avoid doing so. Your call.
    So... were you going to respond to my answer or are you afraid of embarassing yourself some more?

    Re: 2nd amendment rights.

    Truthfully, I am not exactly sure what your answer is and you simply refuse to state it clearly instead preferring to play these games of hide and seek. But hey, I apparently walked down the Jets alleyway wearing as Sharks jacket so by all means continue playing.

    Well, if you aren't going to take the time to read it and figure out what it says -- given that it is in plain English, you shouldn't have -too- much issue with that -- then there's not a lot I can do for you.

    And why bother to simply say it right here when you can hide behind this silly game?

    Silly question - I know.

    Or perhaps I should play the farmer and tell you I already hid the needle which you seek in one of the haystacks over yonder?

    I typed it once and linked to it three times.
    If you don't thnk you can effectively respond to it, just say so - no need for you to keep dodging.

    Re: 2nd amendment rights.

    And you cannot say it in plain english right here because you would rather play this childish game?

    I'll take that as you having no interest in honestly addressing the issue.
    No surprise.
