    Re: Who is my neighbor?

    Serious? You cherry pick the word persuade from a sentence and claim that is the entire definition. Persuading someone to do something by using force or threats.... Persuade =/= Coerce.

    1) I...

    Re: Who is my neighbor?

    What does unimpeded mean? Free from constraint, unblocked, unimpeded... Coercion and impeded are synonymous. Your narrow definition of impeded is not supported by its actual definition....

    So, just to be clear, you are claiming black people were slaves of their own free will?

    Nice to see you got someone to do the heavy thinking for you... still doesn't exactly help.

    You still have to reconcile the contradiction you made earlier. If you were forced to believe in God...
  7. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    And this is a rebuttal to what exactly? I'll ignore the ignorant remark and focus on the argument.

    I am NOT claiming the military should be free to do whatever it wants. I am not arguing that...

    So, we have come to a crossroads of which there are a few possible paths.
    1) You are an imbecile having engaged in a debate/conversation without understanding the key terms.
    2) You are engaging in...

    Can you give me an example where you'd describe yourself as constrained which does not include being prevented from performing an action you'd like, or feel is necessary, to perform? What I mean is...

    Re: Who is my neighbor?

    I do not understand your definition of free will. The definition I tend to go by is along the lines of the following:

    "the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability...
  11. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    Inference is a logical conclusion. It is not 'made up' as you are stating. Huge difference. It is a conclusion based on facts.

    The point, again, is that Trump gave them the authority to do what...

    Re: Who is my neighbor?

    So, then you are implying that if I put a gun to someone's head and forced them to pull the lever for Donald Trump, then you would consider their vote an act of free will?

    From the Slate article:

    Not something I made up. It came right out of the Slate piece and I quoted it. So, your "more likely" claim is really what has been made up. Either support your claim that the Slate story got it...

    There are facts and then there are rumors and stories which may or may not be true. The fact is that Trump gave cyber command the authority to do what they felt needed to be done. The rest is just...

    Right, as suspected, the Trump admin is tougher on Russia than his predeccosor and all you can do is point to a quote from the Times that Trump isn't in the loop. Let's go with that. So what? It...
