    Re: The War On Terror

    I'm not sure exactly how to respond to this. I don't disagree with any of your statements; and nowhere in my reasoning did I say Iran, Iraq, or Palestine did not pose threats. You asked me why ISIS...

    Re: The War On Terror

    I really think this is a good point; as it gets to the heart of the challenges these types of conflicts bring up. Your next point follows this up well; "We're fighting the Nazi's" it's a very clear...

    Re: The War On Terror

    What are your thoughts on the conflicts in the middle east, I'd make an argument that against ISIS and Al-Qaeda we've made significant progress in pushing back and reducing their forces. It's...
  4. Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    Correct me if I'm wrong, and I could be, but wouldn't the burden of proof fall on those who claim God, and his objective morality exist?

    Since it can't be proven I suppose I can accept that it's...

    The War On Terror

    Back in my junior year of high school I was given an assignment to write a research paper and present an argument on whether or not I felt the war in Iraq would be another Vietnam.

    I wrote a...

    I wanted to get a few definitions of morality before I really answered this question. I found two with important distinctions.

    Re: Women Abandoning Trump Are Hypocritical

    I'm very sorry I let this thread slip; some family issues arose that I had to take care of and it's been a long recovery. I did have plenty to say about this topic, many of the post I'd say I agree...

    Re: Repesentative Democracy Is Broken

    Before I make any counter points, though overall I believe I agree with your core point, I'd like some clarification.

    Are you stating this is a "new" phenomenon, or are you simply stating the...

    Women Abandoning Trump Are Hypocritical

    Let me start by saying I was never going to vote trump. I'm firmly against his immigration policies, and his isolationist and protectionist tendencies.

    I read an article in the WSJ today:...

    Lol, we've all been there. I started re-reading some of my old posts and getting a chuckle. I think I might make a brief post of it, not so much a debate but an interesting conversation starter.

  11. Re: Mind Trapped by : So the Clinton scandal is real.

    I agree, I don't think we're far off in our opinions of the matter.

    I actually had a discussion with one of my colleagues regarding this same point: Does it make her unfit for office?

    I agree there is a mistake in relying upon a politicians discresion and knowledge as to what is secret and what isn't if you have no tolerance for any secret info getting out.[COLOR="Silver"]

    Re: Hello

    Lol, no biggie. This is probably the only forum I've ever truly enjoyed. For the most part, the other forums I used to frequent lack a certain quality people here have.
  14. Re: Mind Trapped by : So the Clinton scandal is real.

    I'm not at all surprised that it didn't have an impact on the poles. They have to support their candidate.

    I'm more surprised, or at least outraged, that people with access to such important...

  16. Re: On banning "the R word," or most other words, for that matter..

    I'd be very surprised if you found anyone here truly willing to ban a word; any word. This did make my question other "bans", or at least legal ramifications of using words. Where do we draw a line?...
  17. Re: The Likelihood that Justice Can Be Done.

    1. In a way yes. But not so much injustice, more of a pattern of calling our biased opinions justice. I wouldn't call it injustice, more of a lack of "true" justice. Can we ever break away from our...

    First some definitions for you to consider of Justice:

    I apologize for my brief absence I wanted to more closely control this discussion and steer it. However you've all done this just fine thus far.

  21. Re: How Far Does Freedom and Control Over Your Property Extend?

    This was really the response I was looking for.

    So would you agree that a business owner can say "you can't carry firearms in here"?

  22. How Far Does Freedom and Control Over Your Property Extend?

    I'd like to offer an example for you to consider:

    You own a restaurant, to what extent must you tolerate others exercising their rights?

    First amendment, Second, any.
