I see. Dismembering & executing a small, defenseless human being in utero is about "power" to you.

Terrorist acts are an infringement on the rights of others. Also, illegal in this country. A woman making her own choice regarding her own pregnancy, is neither.
I'm not comparing anything. I just asked a simple question.
Here it is again:

Can someone be authentically against terrorism, while at the same time support al Qaeda's CHOICE to engage in terrorist acts?

Yes or no?

They are the same thing. English & Latin translations don't change the meaning.
Still didn't say Homo Sapiens, Moron.

And no, I did NOT say that "human" is a religious/philosophical term.

You were wrong on BOTH counts.

Suck it up, Buttercup.

A human and a human being are synonyms...interchangeable.

Look up "synonym" in the dictionary. Ask one of your Wiccan cricket goddesses for a thesaurus for the holidays.

For example: "Blockhead" and "Dimwit" are synonyms.

That should help you get started....

Yes, you were comparing. Or you were trying to. My position on reproductive choice with terrorism. You failed because the two are not comparable.

They CAN be used interchangeably, when both apply. It's not required that they are. For example, YOU are both a human and a human being (albeit not a very good example of one). A fetus being gestated inside a human being is a human, but not a human being.

You can say so all you like, but I don't have to debate as though it's true.

The difference is that you're misquoting me, and that doesn't fly. Sorry, but you don't get to misquote me unchallenged.

You can evict any unwanted residents from your property; you are not responsible for their survival past your threshold. The uterus is the woman's property.

This elaborate dance of yours will not cover up for the fact that you made a mistake, and confused me for someone else who DID use the phrase.

Homo sapiens is just one branch of the species--neanderthals, cr-mangnon, australopithecus, homo erectus, etc are all forms of humans.

BTW--modern man is called homo sapiens sapiens; homo sapiens are our most recent ancestors.

A Homo Sapien is the Latin translation for a human (synonym for human being).
YOU said a human is a religious/philisophical term.
I just proved you wrong.

A member of homo sapiens sapiens is a person or human being. To belong to a species, one must be born and alive.

"Human" is an adjective. It can be used as a noun, but it is not scietifically accurate.

Do you really believe your repeatedly pathetic attempts at "discrediting" PCers is anything but vain?
It's been quiet here yet you choose going against the very rights that protect you and focus on removing every American female's civil rights for the sake of faux victory on a Topix thread at the start of the Holiday Season. And you point your fingers to deflect from yourself (as if it weren't obvious).
It's been "quiet" here? That's because only PC were posting to one another, except for Knit's posts. That's how you people stay quiet, when you have no one around that tells it like it is about the stupidity you people post.

There's no logical reason for me to deflect from anything I've posted, since what I post proves the lies posted by you PC. You don't ever make any sense.

Just your typical personal attacks using lies, to try to deflect from what we proved were lies posted by you, about the Ariel situation. You played exactly as I knew and posted you would. Here's a biscuit for you, Fido.

Now, as to the countless lies that we proved you posted back then and the lies in your denials in the present, whay say you, Toots? Another post of attacks to deflect? More ignoring of the truth we posted? Anything and everything you can think of but facing the truth. Which is, we all know you're a pathological liar. Even your friends here can see it, but you all deflect from each others' lies or ignore it altogether.

<quoted text>Actually you're both wrong.
1) The plantation owners wanted to count each slave as 1 person. The Northerners didn't want the slaves counted at all.
2) This led to the 3/5 compomise, not 2/3.
3) The issue was Congressional representation, not taxes. Because representation in Congress is based on population, counting slaves as whole people would show a higher population and thus more representation in Congress.
Exactly.
