Nobody believed that you idiot. That was about taxation, nobody claimed that slaves were 2/3 persons. DAMN you're stupid No Relevance.
Actually you're both wrong.
1) The plantation owners wanted to count each slave as 1 person. The Northerners didn't want the slaves counted at all.
2) This led to the 3/5 compomise, not 2/3.
3) The issue was Congressional representation, not taxes. Because representation in Congress is based on population, counting slaves as whole people would show a higher population and thus more representation in Congress.

Blacks were considered 3/5 persons. Yes or no? Yes. "But they were considered 3/5 persons for taxation and representation!" Answer is still yes: They were considered 3/5 persons.
Next..........
Not for themselves. ONLY for the purposes of taxation and representation for the states.

I didn't address it, because someone else already had, when they pointed out that the slaves, and the Jews were not living inside someone else.

Bitner: Human being is a religious/philosophical concept, not scientific.
Homo Sapiens is Latin for Humans(synonym: Human beings). I'm glad you like Latin, but it's okay to translate into English.
I said nothing about "Homo Sapiens". What ARE you babbling about?

Bitner: "I don't support abortion at all."
You support a woman's right to choose to intentionally kill the little human in her womb.
Same difference.
You lean on a coping mechanism which perversely permits you to be a proabort, while not feeling like a "bad person".
Epic Fail.
Again.
"You support a woman's right to choose to intentionally kill the little human in her womb."

Wrong. I support a woman's RIGHT to make her own CHOICE regarding her own pregnancy.

No coping mechanism needed. YOU, on the other hand, must twist my position in your lame attempt to make me look like a bad person.

You fail, every time.

I see. So you discriminate to death based on temporary living location. Thanks for clarifying.

A Homo Sapien is the Latin translation for a human (synonym for human being).
YOU said a human is a religious/philisophical term.
I just proved you wrong.
Again.
No, you proved yourself wrong. I've been saying "human", not "Homo Sapiens". Obviously, you've got me confused with someone else.

Quick question:
Can someone be authentically against terrorism, while at the same time support al Qaeda's CHOICE to engage in terrorist acts?
Yes or no?
You're comparing apples to oranges.

Terrorist acts are an infringement on the rights of others. Also, illegal in this country. A woman making her own choice regarding her own pregnancy, is neither.

Tsk, tsk.....don't change Bitner's "Human" (noun) into an adjective, dear.
"Personhood" is subjective. Homo-sapien (a human) is a biological fact.
You lose.
Again.
No, I win. I have the power to decide what to do about my pregnancies. Do you?

Of course I understand what "subjective" means.
Intentionally killing another innocent human being for subjective reasons will get you life in prison.
True, but I can kill the fetus in my uterus and there's nothing you can do about it. A fetus isn't a human being, yet. It's just a human organism. Tough shit, pal.

The RCC's only interest is in protecting the church. Children are expendible. Once they exit the womb, of course.

I see something dragged the carrion back into the forum, and Lynne is in her glory as she thinks she has a playmate back. What worthless pieces of shit they both are.
I wonder how happy is that pretty much ALL of his predictions went down the sewer with him, after all, its good company for him.
More and more states are passing SSM laws, Obamacare is going forward and the world ISN'T ending. Go figure.
chip...chip...chip....
BTW, did you see this latest in the saga of the RCC's ignoring the molestation of children? This one may be the worst in history (so far...)
http://www.montrealgazette.com/literacy/raise...
Given the RCC took NO ACTION against Murphy, the one priest that molested over 200 children in his years in the RCC - it will be interesting to see if they ignore this too.

They are the same thing. English & Latin translations don't change the meaning.

What is a "Human organism."

That's a new one.

Do you mean a human (synonym for human being)?

I see. Dismembering & executing a small, defenseless human being in utero is about "power" to you.

I'm not comparing anything. I just asked a simple question.

Yes or no?
