What people in the South fail to realize is that "two sides to an issue" doesn't mean that both sides are equal.
You guys try and push Creationism in schools. You try and claim global warming isn't happening. You claim that the Jews were responsible for 9/11. That the moon landing was fake. etc etc etc.
All of it with your heads wrapped in tinfoil because you don't want you brainwaves stolen by aliens.
This is no different.
Tinfoil really don't work that well, what you really want is a copper mesh.

Should the state should mandate immunizations for your children? Do you feel they are safe for all children. Do they cause other health issues like autism? Should the state also pay for them as well if they are requiring them?
Just thought that a reminder of what this thread is about, and to point out that fear and manic cowardice do not make for intelligent conversation, nor informed opinions. Now that the door is flung wide open by Nuggin, everyone needs to reassert their opinions and sources and demand that anyone opposing should do the same. Take this up a level or two.

Nuggin, I understand the points you've made and the knowledgable and common sense way you came to your conclusions. I think you are correct in most, if not all, of them.
Narrow-minded People will never consider any evidence that conflicts with their set point of view, so you're wasting your time trying to change that "set" POV they have, regardless of what new evidence comes to light that conflicts with their "set" point of View....and we all know that things are constantly changing and we're learning new things...but they refuse to accept that Fact, too.
It's one thing that is dumbing down Americans...the refusal to acknowledge or accept change, based on new discoveries. But, there is absolutely nothing any of us can do or say, to get that through to them, so again, you're wasting your time even trying.
But, if you want to contine trying , please do...just don't expect to ever change their closed Minds. If it had been left up to them, we'd still be living in the "Cave Man" Era.

You know, awake, those are very profound words...and you're absolutely right!
So, I guess that means that there's nothing Anybody can do, to get the TEA Baggers to see where they are SO wrong, especially since they won't even consider a different POV, from the One they recently formed!
The Ones who got to them first, are the Ones' opinions they will always believe because, it's so obvious that they knew nothing up until then, and that's why they were so venerable and easily fooled. Now, because they are so Narrow-minded, they will be fooled forever! How sad, but I agree with you that, even though it's a sad Fact, it's still a Fact!

That would be fine if you weren't begging us for money all the damn time.

When your state can pay for itself, THEN you can make your own decisions. Until then, we're going to treat you like children because you act like children.

Those of us in the REAL American couldn't give two sh1ts if you are convinced or not.

We just want you to behave like adults. We don't care if you believe or not. We don't care if you are mad or not. We don't care if you stick your tongue out.

Just act like a fucking adult for once in your life.

We're sick and tired of half the country constantly acting like spoiled children who are up way past their bedtime.

It's too bad that Narrow-minded People like you, refuse to do the same, instead of spending all of what little brain-power you have, thinking up slurs and insults, to use against anybody that disagrees with you!
You have no need to comment either yet you continue to consider yourself an expert on every issue. As the other reader stated, do a little research, senile old person, before attempting to inform others with misinformation.

That's all...

Such language. Funny how that got past Topix language filter, but oddly enough very appropriate to an article I just saw. Title seems to say it all.

Why is it that those who call for greater and greater governmental control are those least able to control themselves? Maybe the answer is in the question.

Your idea of an adult is to shut up and listen to you.

Sadly this does seem to be the way of things. Why so many who claim to be "liberal" allow so little room for the opinions and insight of others, simply amazes me. They claim that conservatives are closed minded, yet the opposite seems to prevail.

Wouldn't it seem reasonable to think that a "Liberal" would lean more toward smaller government, greater personal liberty and freedom, and maybe even personal anarchy? If so, why is it that "Conservatives" seem to tend that way these days?

Semantics? Obviously, but only by understanding them can we see clearly what is really being said.

You really should change your name unless the homework you speak of is first grade. I am always amazed that the ones who post non-stop trying to convince, anyone who will believe it, how smart they are, are the most ignorant! Maybe if you would type less and read more, you could actually learn something.

Very well stated. Makes perfect sense to me but try reasoning with someone like Linda who goes thru life with blinders on only seeing what benefits themselves.

You have _GOT_ to be kidding me.

With the exception of activities which grossly endanger the public, Conservatives have NEVER been for personal liberty.

Conservatives in Florida passed a law allowing the family of President to make life or death decisions in a specific woman's medical situation.

The government doesn't get bigger or more intrusive than that.

Conservatives want to mandate religion.
Conservatives want to dictate the terms of marriage.
Conservatives want to dictate a personals sexuality.

All liberals want is for the Conservatives to stop killing people.
