Imagine your daughter
Walking home from the store
A man in a car is following her
He gets out, starts following her
He starts chasing her
She knees him, she pepper sprays him,
or trips him.
She is then shot dead.
She is the aggressor, and he is justified in
shooting her in "self defense"
Imagine your daughter
Walking home from the store
A man in a car is following her
He get out, starts following her
She loses him and continues home...the end.

But you don't seem to like your fellow libertarians' viewpoints either.
You've criticized articles published by Cato Institute and thought Stossel's opinions were all but crazy numerous times.
Goes to show you just can't please some people.
I didn't criticize the article by Cato, I criticized you for using an article that was published the year Clinton's tax hikes went into effect that turned out, with time, to be wrong.

A lot of people are glomming on to the libertarian label and that's ok, the movement fits all sizes but ask any right winger posing as a libertarian if we should be defending Israel or if abortion is none of the government's business and you'll soon see their true colors.

Tax cuts are not spending.
The ACA lowers the deficit.

Repeal it & you increase the deficit.

How much was that stimulus bill? Don't you right whiners run around screaming " OMG OMG 8900 billion dollars!!!OMG OMG OMG"?

You know you do.

But the Stimulus was 38% tax breaks.

Now what?

According to you, the Stimulus bill cost $558 billion?

I wish you morons would make up your GD mind.

much bigger since Baucus found out that progressive groups were also targeted.
"I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out, frankly. It's broader than the current focus."
Seriously, sonic, give it up.

Only 19 progressive groups were "so-called" targeted. Over 200 conservative groups were targeted.

The progressives didn't get anywhere near the same scrutiny and interrogation as conservatives.

It's just conservatives who are the enemies of this president, remember?

It’s Time to Investigate Boehner, Issa, and the Republican Criminal Conspiracy
A conspiracy is an agreement to perform together, an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act, and according to legal statutes is a crime in and of itself. Beginning on Inauguration night in 2009, Republicans conspired to deliberately obstruct any and all attempts by new President, Barack Obama, to reverse the devastation of their economic malfeasance that led to the worst recession since the Great Depression, and whether or not it was an illegal act, it was certainly wrongful and subversive. Over the past four-and-a-half years, Republicans have systematically conspired to abrogate their duty as legislators, and between swearing oaths to violate Article 1, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution, to fabricating false scandals to take down President Obama, or serving corporate interests, it is high time to demand an investigation into Republicans in Congress and take appropriate action to remove them from office.
They did the same thing to Clinton. That this is how they are if they don't get their way doesn't bode well for their future in election politics.

I don't want to be forced into handing my whole body over to O'bamacare health care I am never going to use. So you are saying I should be capable of taking care of myself? right. Why won't the liberals let me make up my own mind? answer me!

The end result is that the projects will not happen because the debt service is too high.
So be it. If the people of a city are not willing to pony up the bucks for a project, that is their loss. Aren't you the one who keeps saying we have a spending problem? Letting the wealthy lend money and earn interest without paying taxes on those earnings is not fair taxation. Heck, traders trade and retrade the same bonds several times a week. I think it is high time we stopped this tomfoolery.

Hate to go against those who I generally agree with on politics, but I have to go along with you on this.
The death of a young man who apparently was on the wrong path but could have turned his life around is a tragedy, not to be made the brunt of these senseless jokes.
No matter how wrong the other side is about Zimmerman and aren't looking to solve the real problems in the black community.
You can't see that the issues of white on black crime, black on white crime, white on white crime, or black on black crime are ALL separate issues?

Of course not, there's the water, drink it or don't.

Too bad you helped elect the wrong guy again who cowers at the very mention of the leader's name of China's Communist Party, Xi Jinping.
Romney would have had him and them on the cowering end for a change.
But nooooooo! You wouldn't hear of electing a real leader.
Romney's companies outsourced most of their American jobs to the Chinese so if he had become President why would he have acted any differently to the Communist Chinese leaders in kissing their ass?
