[quote]The problem here is that you want to legislate and regulate private and consensual behavior behind closed doors that does not effect others negatively.[/quote] Who is calling for regulating private masturbation? This is a pretty silly straw man argument. NONE of the examples being u...

re: Am I an a-hole boss? - AlaTiger
I am the "boss" of my company. We aren't in retail and I don't work at McDonald's so I do not care at all what my employees do while they are working as long as they get the work done. We have flexible schedules, too, but you better get the work done. Those deadlines are coming whether you are ready...

[quote]I have never argued that they have not. The left has been quite adept at accusing their political rivals of that which they themselves are guilty. A winning political strategy if there ever was one.[/quote] I am not aware of your personal views. I am talking about the overall perspective. ...

re: Stop Saying "We Can't Legislate Morality." That Is All We Do. - AlaTiger
Whatever. You are arguing with yourself at this point because your biggest fear is that someone else might tell you what to do which would be "bad." Again, this is a moral view of life. All value judgments of good, bad, right, wrong, evil, etc. are moral judgments. And, we legislate or deconstruc...

[quote]The reason the personal choice is a negative is because of government involvement. Human nature is to adapt to one's environment. If that environment changes, we adapt or die. We have created an environment where "failure" or "negative" personal choices is tolerated by being granted free hous...

[quote]Well then you didn't read closely what I wrote. I specifically clarified for you that "legislating morality" has a pretty specific connotation in US political discourse. [/quote] Yeah, sure. I get that. It is an anti-Christian philosophical move that is rooted in a fallacy. If you want...

[quote]Personal morality, how one treats themselves, is about how one treats their own private property. Therefor not of compelling interest due to the fact that it falls outside the wide umbrella of protecting property rights.[/quote] Personal morality is not at all subjective. We are social cre...

[quote]Congratulations, you agree with the libertarians on what the problem is. [/quote] No. Libertarians just say what they don't want to be involved in. They do little to address the fall out from the negative social results that grow out of destructive personal choices. Consequences are bui...

re: Stop Saying "We Can't Legislate Morality." That Is All We Do. - AlaTiger
Using words like "better" and "good" denotes moral judgments. Utilitarianism is a moral philosophy. Your view of "morality" is pretty limited to the point of personal bias. And, I have taken far more than a couple of Freshman level philosophy courses. The idea that personal behavior/va...

re: Stop Saying "We Can't Legislate Morality." That Is All We Do. - AlaTiger
No. I thought I was being obvious. I have yet to read anything to present another view except for Morality = Christian therefore we are right to reject it and "What I want = Common Good." It is all pretty obviously wrong. You should think a bit more. ...

[quote]I think you've fallen down a rabbit hole. Not every single policy ever written has a moral component unless you're going to drag us down the road that everything that serves some practical end is "moral" because it "improves the human experience" or something.[/quote] I obviously disagree ...

re: So Freak Johnson is now working for BR Police or is Collins personal bodyguard?? - AlaTiger
How about this? It was okay for Doucet to be there and it was okay for Freak to tell him to leave them alone? Why is any of this a story? Geez. Everyone is a complete pansy these days. Why is Doucet trying to make himself the story? Why does anyone care?...

Stop Saying "We Can't Legislate Morality." That Is All We Do. - AlaTiger
Libertarians are out of their mind when they say we can't legislate morality. Every single piece of legislation is an expression of morality. Telling people to leave you alone and let you live your life is a view of morality. The Left says that you can't legislate morality only as long as they...

[quote]quote: would not draw a picture of Mohommed just because I have no desire to antagonize others, but I do think that we live in a country where Freedom of Speech is a pretty big deal. I'm not a fan of Islam, and I totally back free speech laws, but I don't see the point of a contest like...

re: Saints should've taken Collins with their 7th round pick - AlaTiger
No, what you mean is that the Saints should have drafted him with one of their 3rd Round picks. Then, he would be cleared and we'd essentially have 3 First Round picks. But, that is hindsight. That is where the play should have happened, though. ...

re: Winning Mohammed Cartoonist, Bosch Fawstin's Acceptance Speech(Video) - AlaTiger
Wait a minute. I just watched the whole thing and it was nothing like the Media told me that it was. I heard fairly intelligent people making a case for not submitting to Islamic Extremist intimidation. What was being said in those speeches was mainstream American thought just a few years ago - like...
