Big organic butt, Liberal Mitchell Obama, yells to Liberal heckler; "I do not care what you believe"!

Since Liberalism is all about politics and imposing their "beliefs" on others, such a response from the money face is a stab at the heart of Liberalism!!!

But Liberals will still worship the black Diva and will continue to bend over to Obama that to move to the party of freedom and personal responsibility!!

Prostitution is not legal in all of Nevada. In fact the areas with the densest population maintains law against prostitution.
The rural areas which do allow prostitution, do so under an ordinance requiring "registration" and Licensing. In other words, the government is getting their cut. Basically, the government is acting pimp in those places.
Only 3 counties in Nevada prohibit prostitution - so what? Is that your argument moron? The point is, where it's legal it's crime free, it's clean and it works!

Huh? Spare us with your ideology BS! Conservatives are obsessed with controlling people, look at issues related to reproductive health and rights on the state level, legislators introduced more than 1,100 reproductive health and rights-related provisions restricting women's constitutional rights!! I guess you are one lucky bastard, if wasn't for your cranium you'd have to carry a pile of dogshit in a plastic baggy - ye moron!!

Lmao! You just can't help yourself can you? You have to cast insults at anyone who disagrees with you.
My point is, you said prostitution is legal in Nevada. That is not entirely accurate. Yes, three counties, which as I pointed out, are the areas of highest population density in that state.
Are you saying crime is lower in areas which allow prostitution, because they allow prostitution?
I contend that crime would be lower in those areas because population densities are much lower, those areas are rural, and residents there are more likely to be armed.
Thank you for displaying that liberal compassion, understanding, and respect for others.

You have your conservatives and liberals mixed up.
It is liberals who wish to control people, or want the government to control people.

Legislative action by conservatives paints another picture, you are in deep denial! Liberals want to give people the freedom to make their own choices as opposed to conservatives who are literally obsessed with controlling people especially women or anyone that refuses to go along with their prehistoric ideology!

I see. So it is conservatives who wish to implement gun control laws? Is it conservatives that proposed a bill to ban overseas sale of natural gas by US companies? Is it conservatives who want the government controlling healthcare and healthcare insurance?

Liberals do not want people making their own choices. Liberals want people reliant upon the government, and want to convince them they don't need the freedom to make their own choices, the government will make those choices for them.

Effective gun-control is a matter of public health and most of ua agree on that except for a few hysterical gunloons!!
There is no such bill it a fabrication by the hysterical radio-show talking-head-idiots, it pertains to gas wells on national lands only!!
Gov't has must play a role in setting rules and regulation to keep its citizens safe from predatory and criminal businesses ... national health care is something we should have started decades ago as have all other modern industrialized countries!

Oh, so what you meant was you want "the right people" to be free to choose. You should have just said so. We knew that already anyway.

Funny, since the bill I am referring to was posted by a liberal.

No, people should take responsibility for protecting themselves from "predatory and criminal businesses".
Government has no business controlling healthcare and healthcare insurance.

Have you changed your story? It now sounds like you support government controlling people, thereby overriding freedom.

Gun control is not based on public safety. It is based in racial policy and gas been since the first gun control laws were enacted on this Continent. Laws stating Indians, coloreds and non whites were not to possess a firearm were enacted in the 1700's. The GCA of 1968 was enacted and the authors have said racism was involved. Cities with high minority populations have the strictest gun control statutes. Spare the public safety bs, it is at the root white liberal racism.

Liberals are proud and happy to spend other peoples money and claim people on the right are greedy and responsible for poverty. Yet who gives more if their wages to the poor and charitable organizations? Not liberals.


About time we started national healthcare? Just like other Countries? If that was a good system why do people leave those Countries and use our healthcare? Of course it is the rich liberals doing it, not the average citizen. Private charities have been providing healthcare for the poor for a longtime, and done well on contributions. St Jude, Shriners and many others have done an excellent job. A far better job than government run programs have. National healthcare

Saying conservatives want to control women because they don't support the primitive act of abortion is not only wrong, but liberals know what abortion really is, a way to control people by a false ideology.

Conservatives have their failings, but they are less damaging than liberals.

Classical Liberalism vs. Modern Liberalism and Modern Conservatism

Modern Liberalism and Conservatism as Sociologies

There is, however, one difference between conservatives and liberals that is neither random nor chaotic. It is a difference that is systematic and predictable.

Whereas conservatism and liberalism are both outgrowths of classical liberal thought, they differ in what they accept and reject of their intellectual roots. Conservatism tends to accept the classical liberal commitment to economic liberty but rejects many of its applications to the noneconomic realm. Liberalism accepts the classical liberal commitment to civil liberties but largely rejects the idea of economic rights.

As libertarians are wont to say, liberals want government in the boardroom but not in the bedroom. Conservatives want the reverse. Much more is involved, however, than bedrooms and boardrooms.

You keep insisting to debate your semi retarded idiocy!? How, and why, would anyone want to debate why people should not expect the Gov't to be providing military forces defending the country or the police looking out for law and order or the firemen putting out your house on fire or your saving int the bank are save and secure or people have safe drinking water or access to healthcare - I can go on with this all day long! You don't have a leg to stand on other than your misguided rightwing ideology BS - ye brainless moronic idiot!!
