I'm not "painting" you as irrational, you are. However, you may find that parents have a somewhat different point of view on "parental rights", and rightly so.
Not rightly so.

Do you have the right to deny your child food? Healthcare? An education? Do you have the right to beat your child? Nope.

You know why? Because your child is a citizen with rights of their own.

Your rights do not supersede the rights of the child, nor do they supersede the rights of the society as a whole.

We give you WIDE LATITUDE for f up your child for life with your religious beliefs and rampant ignorance, however when you fail it falls upon US to pay for your mistakes. Therefore, you do not have full authority to fail.

Don't like it? Move to Iran.

Why should I move? I stand for the Constitution, I think the Founding Fathers of these United States got it right, and I am not trying to manipulate and control others to comply with a tyrannical system of laws. What entitles you to remain here? Oh yeah, now I remember, I fought for your Right to remain here. I fought for your right to be a foul-mouthed, obnoxious, jerk if that's what you should choose to be. It is unfortunate that if your parents taught you any manners at all, you've chosen not to use what you were taught, but absence of one definitely indicates absence of the other.

Let me derail you right at the start.
We get a lot of our electricity from coal.
Apart from the health and environmental impacts of harvesting coal, there's the down the line impacts from burning it which include high levels of mercury, radioactive waste and carbon emissions. All of which are detrimental.
ANY technology that reduces our overall energy usage reduces our coal usage. Any reduction on coal usage far outpaces even the most wild ass speculation about potential dangers from the ONE kind of energy efficient bulb that contains minute traces of mercury.
Given that Tenn still has a number of coal plants spewing mercury and radioactive waste all over the state, it's in your best interest to upgrade your lights. Side benefit, it costs you less.
So, of course, you aren't going to do it.
Better for you? Yes.
Better for everyone else also? Yes.
Easy to accomplish? Yes.
Conservative willing to do it? FUCK NO.
LOL See? Exactly what I said, but golly he sure took a while to say it, didn't he? LOL

General off topic question here.

Is this for real or not? I can't seem to find this on any of the major news networks at all, only on Yahoo News and the Blaze sites.

Apologies for the off .... well, we've kinda been off topic for some time, haven't we? Well, apologies anyway.:-)

You may think you are old, but you were no in the war of 1812. You never fought for my right to do anything.

As I said before, if you want to be a part of a society where the individual has no responsibility whatsoever, you need to move someplace else. Here your citizenship comes with responsibilities to your fellow citizens.

Actually, if you read the study the thinking goes like this:

"These bulbs produce UV radiation at dose X"
"UV radiation at dose Z is dangerous"

Therefore the bulbs are dangerous.

If you have a window allowing light in the room, you are getting more UV radiation from the Sun than you would from the lightbulb.

You should probably stop wasting your time on this one - she obviously just likes to hear herself blather because her "homework" surely stopped at about 3rd grade, and the only thing she "fought" for was the last doughnut. Her husband (if she has one) probably just wishes she would take enough "responsibility" to get off topix long enough to take a shower and brush her tooth.

Amusing distractions give others a chance to maybe catch me distracted in the other discussions I'm in. Oddly enough, I hadn't given any thought to Nuggin's gender.

You know, if Nuggin is a female, then that could make quite a bit make a lot of sense. Well, as I am so fond of observing, Time does tell all tales.

If you reside in the US legally, and/or if you are a US citizen, yes I did, and so have a lot of other people. If you are neither then you are right, and you need to return to where you legally belong.

I'm asking for hypocrisy on current political issues.
Don't give me: "Oh, in World War One some Democrat was actually of German descent."
Give me an _issue_ that displays hypocrisy on the side of Liberals. You claim that they are all hypocrites, let's have an example from the last 3-4 years.
<quoted text>
Sorry, but that's where you are wrong.
We MUST use the term "Conservative" and "Liberal" because when we talk about Republicans posters like to pretend that Lincoln was on their side.
The parties switch philosophical stances. The stances don't change.
Conservatives supported slavery during the Civil War just like the are anti-immigration today.
From what I've read,(believe it or not, I wasn't alive back then), the White Southern Plantation Owners probably didn't have a Political Affiliation, for the most part. They were only interested in not losing their Labor Force that was making, or had made them rich...and it had cost them practically nothing, but Room and Board. In their Minds, it was all about MONEY...kinda like the TEApublicans of today!

I've been fishing, but so far no bites. I've had a few nibbles, but they've been minnows. I'm kinda after the big fish, if you know what I mean. It would be just the confirmation I'm looking for.

1812 wasn't about slavery, but Britain's attempt to retake the Colonies, as I recall, and the US kicked their London-derrieres. Been trying to work that one out, but no joy thus far. Slavery was in the 1860's {give or take a bit}.

Oh yeah, there was something else to go along with that. Why is it that the Emancipation Proclamation wasn't written until 3 years after South Carolina declared their Independence, 2 years after Fort Sumter, and only sought to free the slaves in Maryland and Virginia; none in the North, and there were slaves aplenty up in Yankee Land.

It is sure easy to blame the South for slavery, but who brought the slaves from Africa? Northerners. Who sold them the slaves? The conquering tribes, arguably almost always black. What were they bought with? Rum and Bibles. Who beat the black slaves? The slave traders and the overseers until they were caught by the plantation owner. How long would slavery have lasted without the War Between the States? Maybe 10 to 15 years because the industrial revolution was beginning and a machine requires less medical care, housing, and feeding than human slaves do.

It never ceases to amaze me how little thought people put into the middle 1800's.

I'm calling bullshit on this.

There has not be a legitimate threat to the US since 1812.

No war you could possible have fought in has anything to do with my freedoms.

Iraq 1 or 2? Afghanistan? Panama? Grenada? Vietnam? Korea? None of these represented real threats which extended past their borders. Certainly no threat to the US.

If you go back as far as WWII, you can find some bigger players - but even then, no real risk to us. Even if we had sat it out, Germany wouldn't have beat Russia.

So that leaves who? Japan? Laughable. They were hard to beat into submission when they were defending to the last man, but they certainly were no threat to our freedoms.

Only in your wildest dreams can you come up with a scenario that involves Japan taking a single city in California, and even then they couldn't hold it.

So, here you are telling me you fought for MY freedoms. No. You fought (if you fought) for a paycheck and benefits. That's all.

Yes, the war of 1812 involve England invading and sacking out capital. It was the last significant threat we've faced to our "freedoms".

You did not fight off the Brits. You never fought for freedom.

Ah! So that's what you meant. I can actually agree with this post, for the most part anyway.

However, the government you think we should all obey called us to duty, directed us to fight its war, and did this in your name among others. Yeah, we do fight for you, and we die for you as well. Have they been legitimate wars? I would say not, but that doesn't change one thing, Nuggin. If you wish to support this government, then you share in the blood it has shed on both sides, and I do believe one day you'll be called to answer for that blood, every last drop. Be thankful you won't be alone.
