    You know things have gotten out of hand when you have to expressly make promises like that on your website.
    Yet, not one word about management violence down thru the years against the unions.

IMO, our people have hurt themselves, our government wishes to improve them, no easy task with the conservatives around. .
    This I do not know about.
    The tea bagging conservatives may appear to be physically and mentally lacking, but this has not affected their movement..

    As the OP told me, feel free to provide your own examples. Unlike the OP, I won't even duck responding to them.

    That works both ways. Though it does make more sense for an pro-abortion advocate to kill, than it does for a pro-lifer to kill. Either way is wrong.

    Beamish told the court that Drake cut her off and drove past her in his white truck and stopped at the curb where Pouillon was holding a pro-life sign. She said she saw Drake take his time to steady his hand and fire off shots at Pouillon, who attempted to use his sign to protect himself.

    I'm pro-life but it's wrong to terrorize abortion doctors with those wanted posters.

    Re: Is violence an acceptable political tactic?

    Violence is absolutely an acceptable political tactic depending on the circumstances surrounding it. For instance, under a legitimately authoratarian regime where any sort of control is completely out of the hands of the people, I believe violence could be acceptable. It's ridiculous in my mind to blanketly state that its not acceptable, when it was violence as a political tactic which directly created this country.

    However, I believe in the system we have in America violence is not an acceptable political tactic. The atmosphere and system in which we live allows for actual change to occur, authoratarian ruling to be kept to a minimum realistically speaking, and power on the part of the people to steer government.

    this is retarded. as a pro life person myself, I don't think violence is the answer to stop the holocoust of the innocents.

    Re: Is violence an acceptable political tactic?

    I'm shocked, truly shocked, that Chappy all but ignores every left leaning group where extreme elements of it use "violence" as he defines it (Unions, Environmentalists, Anti-War protesters) and instead wishes to focus singularly on right leaning ones.

    Is over the top rhetoric problematic? Sure. But there is a large difference between "war" or "violent" metaphors...something used in all segments of society routinely....and actual violent action.
