re: A child, a rusty nail, and Rand Paul - jerep
Please refresh my memory. Was the conclusion that logical consistency matters, or that it doesn't? I have to wonder since you claim that this thread is about the bigger issue of "FREEDOM" (which I assume is synonomous with "freedom"). ...

[quote]Inasmuch as several of you wish to highjack the thread I'll take that as proof that Rand's uppity "freedom" answer to the mandatory vaccine question was absolutely stupid nonsense.[/quote] Since you have ignored the aboriton issue which several people have raised, I'll take that as proof t...

re: Obama wants to try Gitmo prisoners in U.S. - jerep
1) I haven't seen any evidence to suggest that German soldiers were any more conscripted than American soldiers. Most Germans thought that fighting for the homeland was the patriotic thing to do. 2) Where in the concept of rule of law, or in the commandment of Christ to apply the Golden rule to ...

re: Obama wants to try Gitmo prisoners in U.S. - jerep
During WWII German soldiers were held in prisons in the middle of the U.S. and not only were they treated well, but Americans who had husbands and sons who were fighting them would show kindness to the Germans in nearby POW camps. Now the people of this country rather than demonstrating fidelity ...

re: What's the penatly if you don't register? - jerep
I've seen from several different sources that the law was written so that if you arrange your taxes so that you own money at the end of the tax year rather than being due a refund then the IRS is prohibited from using any of their usual avenues for collecting the penalty. They can tell you you owe ...

[quote]TJ was a liberal of the time, so I don't see what is surprising about this statement. Remember, American conservatism had deep roots in the FEDERALIST party (washington, adams, Hamilton).

re: Tea Party: Boehner has 'declared war' - jerep
Boehner and the leadership care about nothing but keeping themselves in power. For Boehner to claim that these conservative groups are "using" the American people is the height of hypocracy. Boehner and the rest of the GOP establishment constantly lie to their constituents about their desire to ...

The possibility of a primary challanger to McConnell has been mentioned hopefully by several in this thread. McConnell has a primary opponent named Matt Bevin. McConnell is very unpopular in Kentucky. He is so unpopular that he has polled behind his likely Democrat opponent. He has the establi...
