Mike why are you consistently so curt with emlu? She is posting links for comparison.What's so bad about that? Mike its just not necessary, all this rudeness.I don't think non-civility is a needed feature in life, or Topix.
She made no comparisons, nor posted links that compare against each other, so I have no idea how to compare what she posted to what.
I point out clearly my beef with her, so I am not sure why you are confused. Posting a link means nothing if you have no point. Maybe you can read minds, but I cannot.
I asked a simple question, "What is your point"? She responded rudely. Maybe you just have double standards.

So you refuse to support your opinion with logic? Hell, you refuse to support your opinion at all.
I have the same beef with you as I have all the republicans here. Give your opinion and make a case for it. That is the entire purpose of this forum. No one seems to want to play be the common rules of debate. And you have the nerve to bitch at me for complaining about it?

Thank you Emlu. Interesting. I stand corrected again. There were 2 things I learned today. I won't be living or visiting in Finland as well. Scary stuff--300 million vs. 5.4 and 5.6 million. You all remember Aruba and Natalie. What's with the Dutch policia?

I "pick" at everything I dispute. Maybe you have no noticed that, and think you are being targeted? Grow some thicker skin if you want to debate with the big boys.
Name one conservative who I do not "pick" at? Hell, if a liberal says something I dispute, I will "pick" at it also. Ask Arnold about my religious debates with him.

Maybe so, but you sure are not pointing them out very well. I am short with those who do not debate like normal people. Emlu is a perfect example of one of these people. You often do it also. Most conservatives here just refuse to have a full debate. They start whining after the first claim about not wanting to justify the claim. Thus, their is no debate. This is a debate forum, as no conservatives here seem to take note of.

Do you have proof or is that just your opinion? If I'm not mistaken, the subject was the fact provided that female physicians outnumber males. Do you think there's more female mechanics, welders, construction workers, etc? Does the fact there's more female doctors than male doctors, mean there's equality across the board? Religion, just as you and your opinions, do not guarantee equality, so what's the big deal about religion and equality? You never stated what religion or why.
I am going by the claim of Emlu about doctors.

I can show you many bible verses that make for inequality of women. And just look at the Muslim world to see what the old ways of Christianity were.
Women are still banned by many major denominations to be in the hierarchy of the church. Mormons, Catholics are just a few. That is clearly non equality.

<< 1 Timothy 2:12 >>

New International Version (1984)
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.

Genesis 3:16
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Colossians 3:18
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

Not exactly a culture of equality. It takes secularism to do that.

Invite them to remain and to eat something.

Not sure, as Emlu does not seem to offer hers.

I am asking for opinions, in case you are confused, but I want explanations of why the opinion is good. If you cannot supply, then your opinion is either not good, or maybe you just do not know why you feel what you do. Maybe you just cannot articulate it. Either way, it makes for a non debate, and this is a debate forum.
So you guys can refuse to debate all you wish, and I will continue to ridicule you for doing so. Again, this is a debate forum. Just in case you missed that, this is a debate forum.

Ok, but .08 is not really detectable to the server. "impaired" is subjective. Likely why I have never seen this law being enforced.

Of course I do cut off someone who is overly impaired in my opinion, and there are rules to how much one can serve an individual.

None of this changes my previous claims.

What you thought is incorrect. Clearly after someone slanders enough, you just believe the lie. I usually do not bother to correct the slander, but Silver is just taking it to far. But I see you still have not condemned him once for it. Double standards.

Mike, you need to brush up on your religions. There are plenty of religions that allow women a place in the hierarchy of their religion. There are women priests in the Catholic denomination, women rabbis in the Jewish religion, there are women pastors in Baptist, Pentecostal, Methodist, Lutheran, Episcopalian(bad spelling I know) etc. Treating a woman as an equal is called individualism and respect learned from parents even if you don't believe in God, apparently you're the exception to the rule, not the rule. The disdain men, i.e. you, show women on this forum speak volumes about your lack of respect of women as your equal. Since you equate religion with inequality to women, tell me again which faith you're of because you're a mighty fine example of a misogynist.
