    Iím not so much pro Democratic as anti Republican but Iíll bite.

  2. Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    Right, and only by being outside of the field, if you like, can one see how wrong one is. And just like H was rejected on bad science, something H isn't really based on, the results of MW have been...

    I don't agree that a girl is a good reason for abortion either so this is a straw man. And indicative of the problems when you see everything in simple black and white. Even where there should be no...

    No one is accusing you of killing gay people. I am saying that your words dehumanize the love between two gay people. That your statements and attitudes diminishes them. You do realize, even with the...
  9. Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    If you are recommending, as you have done several times, to not have MM then the scope is already expanded. You have also suggested the same problems for unions so the scope is beyond even MM.

    No worries. Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully, you can find some time to do some self-reflection.

    Let me make this easy for you since you appear to be barking up the wrong moral tree.

    Firstly, nobody is masking that a human being is killed during an abortion. That is the point of the abortion;...

    It is an embryo of a human being; or a fetus of a human being; or a baby. And yes, it is a life being extinguished: itís baffling that this continues to be pointed out. Itís literally the point of...

    Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    Itís the same topic: why is DSM inconsistent in the way with its descriptions of disorders. Answer: new information and social norms.
