Um. Every citizen in this country, either used to be, or can trace their lineage back to,'some foreigner'. Try again?

Did a foreign black child steal your candy when you were a kid? Had it been a white child, would you now be telling us to look at what whites have accomplished with the Appalacian Hills?

Sheesh.

Asking you if you're happy to see me admit to being wrong is what you consider "bullying"? Really? LOL, whatever. You whine a lot.
Your "feeling" is wrong. If you're "feeling" bullied, that's on you.
INK is a petty, miserable, pompous old woman. She thinks she's fooling people here but the only one she's fooling is herself. her little Miss Lily White routine is a stinking pile of horshit.

INK THINKS HER SHEIT DOESN'T STINK!!!

Miss Holier-Than-Thou INK needs a lesson in humility.

That is so true and such a far cry from the original concept of America. Out of many, one. We now are 'many out of many' and I think that weekens the country. I hope we can all find some common ground soon.

Did you see where bHitler claims "Human" (noun) and "Human Being" are 'philosophically different'?
Thesauruses say human and human being are synonyms. This is a universal fact, yet bHitler denies she pulled her view out her azz.
bHitler's stubbornly-stupid 'arguments' make me laugh.
She has been saying that for a long time. She says a lot of crap that isn't true, then calls everyone else a liar. I really believe that she has issues that don't involve sanity.

She openly supports the intentional and brutal killing of these little humans.
She realized she just exposed how evil she is, so her pathetic argument was to say "a human is not the same thing as a human being."
Pick up a thesaurus. You'll see that "a human" (noun) and a human being are synonyms.
Damn she's dumb.
And.

Knowingly & willingly evil.
Tell me, can a human embryo or fetus appreciate any of this? Can you be bothered to appreciate the philosophical differences between human and human being?

"The human being is a complex matter and many believe that just trying to understand life and what it means to be human is a futile undertaking. We believe that we have to try to understand life and get a grip on the many faces of life, because it can be of great value to us to learn to recognize the fundamental principles of how life is lived to the fullest. Learning to recognize the good and evil forces of life helps us to make use of the good ones. To be human is to balance between hundreds of extremes."

Does your default position ever go beyond Argumentum ad Hominem?

"...(abusive and circumstantial): the fallacy of attacking the character or circumstances of an individual who is advancing a statement or an argument instead of trying to disprove the truth of the statement or the soundness of the argument. Often the argument is characterized simply as a personal attack."

Can an infant? If he can't does that make him less than a human being?

The difference between human embryo/fetus and a human infant is what, Ink? Live birth.

An infant has the capability of learning how s/he affects the world around him/her. Even when limited by physical/mental handicaps.

You look worse than any name ascribed to you by others when you refuse to research on your own.

Here's a page where you can start.

"However, human beings not only define themselves biologically and anatomically, but also in psychological, social, and spiritual terms.

Psychologically, humans have a highly developed brain capable of abstract reasoning, language, and introspection. Humans also are noted for their desire to understand and influence the world around them, seeking to explain and manipulate natural phenomena through science, philosophy, mythology, and religion. Humans also have a marked appreciation for beauty and aesthetics, and can use art, music, and literature to express concepts and feelings. Their mental capability, natural curiosity, and anatomy has allowed humans to develop advanced tools and skills; humans are the only known species to build fires, cook their food, clothe themselves, and use numerous other technologies.

Humans are inherently social animals, like most primates, but are particularly adept at utilizing systems of communication for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization. They create complex social structures of cooperating and competing groups, ranging in scale from small families and partnerships to species-wide political, scientific, and economic unions, including complex systems of governance. Social interactions between humans have also established an extremely wide variety of traditions, rituals, ethics, values, social norms, and laws that form the basis of human society. Their ability to appreciate beauty and aesthetics, combined with the human desire for self-expression, has led to cultural innovations such as art, literature and music. Humans are notable for practicing altruistic behaviors not only towards relatives, but also others, including sometimes enemies and competitors. Males and females form monogamous pair bonds and raise their young in families where both parents protect and educate the youngsters. Humans have extended parental care, and pass on many attributes socially to their young.

Spiritually, humans have historically formed religious associations, characterized by belief in God, gods, or spirits, and by various traditions and rituals. Many religious perspectives emphasize soul, spirit, qi, or atman as the essence of a human being, with many holding that this inner essence survives the death of the physical body. For many, it is this inner essence that explains the unique psychological and social aspects of humans and is the principle characteristic differentiating humans from other animals."

Evidently, after making such a post,Junket isn't a very loving person. I hope that she doesn't have children. Can't imagine a woman being so unwomanly. Children need a compassionate mother who would not be turned off by dirty diapers. A mother who is loving will love her baby even with stinky diaper.

Hi John, I thought it was excellent too.
Haven't heard from you in quite a while but I kind of got the drift that your parents were ill and are better now . Best wishes for them.

The fetus is an unknown quantity until live birth. Yes, technology allows us to see inside the womb, even to perform surgery, but there is still a huge X Factor involved regarding fetus' capabilities until the newborn can be held and tested. You know this.

The line is drawn at live birth for various reasons. The link I supplied for you has many other links included. A person could spend productive hours learning instead of wasting time hurling insults. jmo

Good evening "Ink!"

Yeah, sorry I meant to get back to you earlier but things have become a tad hectic both at work and with the folks.

Ahh, well I guess you're starting off in the dark so I'll give you a quick rundown(which will thoroughly annoy "grumpy!") Mom's been in a bad way for quite awhile; hip/leg pains that have left her crippled. About a month and a half ago we finally made it to an orthopedic surgeon who, after an X-Ray, realized she'd fractured her hip--quite severely. So she's scheduled for an almost immediate hip replacement surgery. This was back in early August. She can't get clearance from her PCP, so we go to emergency at the facility where she's scheduled to have the procedure, and that gets us in.
She's in, get's the surgery, and then gets transferred to a hospital right down the road from my place for her rehab.
Dad, meanwhile, is out of his mind with worry, is prone to falling, and has quite a nasty fall on a brick floor, surrounded by ceramic flower pots. He spends six to eight hours alone, on the floor, until he can finally drag himself to bed. Upon hearing this I said, "That's it, you're going to see a doctor tomorrow!" Earliest appt I can get isn't until two days from my call, but I get him in, the Nurse Practitioner doesn't like his EKG scans, and says we'd be better off going to emergency for a full series of tests. He puts up a fuss, and I say, "Look, let's take you up to where Mom is, and you can at least be together."
He complains but ultimately relents. He stays there for a week and a half, his cardiac tests come up negative, his neurological not so much, but nothing is specifically diagnosed. Mom finishes up her rehab--she's doing amazingly well--and they're both discharged on the same day...which is something of a relief(concern) for me as I think that they were better off where they were for the time being.
Now they're back at home, have P-T three times a week, and are both acting like a couple of four-year olds; screaming at one another about the most nonsensical, idiotic, petty B.S. you can imagine.

So, they're both driving me nuts--to put it mildly...
But thanks for the inquiry, I do appreciate the sentiment!

Best,
John.
