Of course it is a choice in some respects, but certainly not much of a choice. That is the point. Gods commandments are not giving someone much of a choice if they actually believe in the consequence of hell.
I suppose you call having a gun pointed to your head and demanding the cash, " a choice", if you hand it over like Silver does. As if dying over twenty dollars is a rational choice to make. Yes, as I have stated, it is a choice, but only if you take the common meaning to such extremes it is a meaningless term.

By your reasoning, slavery was a choice. The slave really just chose to work over being beaten to death.
By your reasoning, the slaves had free choice.
Only an idiot would agree that slaves were free to make choices of being a slave. But you are an idiot, so I can understand why you distort the idea of choice.

<quoted text>Semantics again. Biden blamed bad intel on the deaths in Benghazi after the fact because even he isn't dumb enough to place blame before the attacks! Are you that dumb?

Notice how the White House is playing semantics too in the above link!

So what one says after an event is causing the event? Sorry, but I am confused still. Please explain how what Biden said caused the deaths of four people?

<quoted text>No difference? Let me just point out a few for those who are ignorant.
Slavery gave no money, welfare does.
Slavery forced people to work for insane hours often in chains.
Slaves were often beaten violently.
Slaves were often seperated from their loved ones. Welfare is to help keep family together.
Those on welfare are free to do as they chose. This includes voting.
Slavery in the United States existed as a legal institution from the early years of the colonial period; it was firmly established by the time the United States sought independence from Great Britain in 1776.During the 1820s and 1830s, the American Colonization Society (ACS) was the primary organization for proposals to "return" black Americans to Africa.[76] The ACS was made up mostly of Quakers and slaveholders, who disagreed on the issue of slavery but found common ground in support of "repatriation". Most black Americans did not want to emigrate; rather, they wanted full rights in the United States, where they were native born, often for generations.http://en.wikipedi a.org Of course this "business" ended some 200 years and much modernization, both here and around the world ago. Thank goodness.

<quoted text>Its obvious you come to Topix for an education.
To command is to be given without asking, without forcing other people to give to you- they naturally want to because of your actions/demeanor, etc. To demand is to behave or act in a way that forces people to give to you.....
So for example, someone who "commands" would be someone you admire, someone who "demands" might be someone you fear.
Thanks for the distorted view of words by Pro.
No where in the actual definitions of these words elude to your twist on them.
Did you pull this out of a Christian apologetics propaganda manual?

So the slaves came voluntarily?
I am pretty sure this is a black and white case, if there ever was one. The slaves were forced here.

Bacon you a betting person? I got five bucks, says"Allen"won't sign in.Because, Allen is actually the person responsible for these vile posts.If Allen signed in, Allen could receive Topix email from other signed in posters.That's the last thing Allen wants.Also, if a person is signed in and posts obscene material, they are banned from Topix.Can't be responsible for posts like that, you know.Five bucks, You on?
Well you just lost a bet. And no you (RFP), I am not the one responsible for those vile post. Remember when I said that I was not computer savvy? Well okay then. I did register with topix. I actually welcome posts from other signed in posters, I can block them if I choose, but on my profile settings when I try to make my recent posts private it does not allow it. Why? And yes I have read all the blah, blah crap. Lol.

And yet, "political discussion" plays a major part in everyone's lives, at work and play. So why discuss it? Sugar Hollow Club at Sugar Mt. Ski resort at one time paid me a "salary" to "slop beer".
Ok as nothing is black and white.
Is slopping beer all you did there? Were you a manager also?

Yep, didn't even have to change kegs, 400.00 a week plus tips. No running food, cleaning tables, reservations, nada. Bartend wipe the bar and restock, go home. Oh the life of "resort" work. Got to ski free as well. That was a great winter.

Allen, you're not signed in properly because you would have like the green box thing, unless you're logged in another name and avatar. Sorry, it might take a day or two for them to get you signed it. I wasn't computer savvy and neither was AZ when we both tried to sign in, but we finally figured it out together. On the private posts it should say enable or disable, if you don't want anyone to read your information just hit the disable.
