Thanks for the Rep!
You SO nailed my argument in the "Father" thread. Good job!
Belated thanks for the rep. Have a great Christmas.
Life experience, I would say. Libertarianism sound really awesome as an ideology --if you don't examine the precepts very thoroughly. On paper, it sounds like life should just be as simple as "You work, you earn; you work more, you earn more. You should always be free to do these things." and then take this to the nth degree. Reality, unfortunately, is just a bit more complicated than this. You can't ignore the role that society plays on the individual, and I think it's really rather hard to maintain any form of libertarian philosophy after understanding this.
lmao, it's funny you repped that post that was 6 years old, given that 6 years later I'm a leftist, and I think that FDR was the closest thing we had to a decent president in the last 100 years. Although I'm still quite pissed at the whole Japanese concentration camps thing.
Wow, what happened to your ankle? I am sorry to hear it kid.
ty for the rep
Here's my quote as per the rep I left you...
[A]ccording to Cocteau's plan, I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal?
Can you tell me where you found a link to the following:
Fabulous as ever, thanks. Patrick just adopted my oldest. Hearing was yesterday.
