Everybody's right, no one's wrong, as long as one keeps to themselves. Debate, compromise, agreement, legislation, and litigation for the interactive stuff. At least that's how we do it in a country governed by the rule of Law. It often ain't pretty, but historically it's the best we've come up with that I know of.

Where do you find truth? Is there truth?
I've not seen it. It'd be nice I suppose, in some perfect parallel world, to have everything perfectly arranged and answered for, but it'd still be ultimately oppressive to somebody. Truth in a society is what >we< together decide it is, and it will still be onerous to some, not enough for others. When I buy my island I'll tell you what truth is there; you're free to pursue the same. Until then we're stuck with working it out the best we can. At least in America it's set in parchment that we'll do it Together.

I agree with you that things aren't rosy, by a long shot.
But I think we have seen the worst of it, and are on the rebound.
And I believe in positive thinking.

Paul Krugman, a huge Obama supporter, says were no longer in a recession..........Nope he's calling it a depression..........

Because your intolerance doesn't pass the smell test with a definition and you know it.

You'd be a lot more mellow if you smoked a little weed now and again.
It's now legal where I live.

So the state decides for us all. Great. Worked out well for Germany in 1938.

You know what would be freaky? If this poster is the guy who kidnapped that little boy and this is him posting from his bunker. Not that I think it is but if someone were writing a book that would be kind of an interesting inclusion to the story.

What would be really freaky, is if anybody actually READ that stuff.

I developed a great affinity for the scroll button, after the first sentence of the first post.

Not me! Big difference between me and other poster, i prefer to quote good leaders who criticize US wrongs and backed up with my other references from news article of legislation, legal reviews, and from career professional in their field in power, in govt and authority and the other poster posts are not specific in references with out backup.
i like to talk specific , backing up my references like so Know anything about the obnoxious Gramm-Leech-bliley Act, FTAA bills, Extra-illegal Constitional Agendas, SOPA, HR 1207... and how these pieces in legislation and in govt. effect, infect, and afffect The masses of zombies like you kind , our dumbed down Americans are undereducated about Us foreign Policy, PNAC agendas, leo Struassian Philosophy, Neo_Cons and Neo-MAlthusianss Castrophe agendas...

John Stockwell, former CIA official (from his books, speeches...

The major function of secrecy in Washington is to keep the U.S. people ... from knowing what the nation's leaders are doing.
Agendas...

As many our Americans Are clueless and sheeeoples just like you and many! BWBBABABAA. Stay Stupid ignorance is bliss, before you know it US will fall like those great Empires from Ancient Rome, Greece to modern Day Nazi germany and Weimer Republic - a financially and morally bankrupt nation because nation overextend itself Greed and power will befall a Empire. so what you leatn Dumb Sheeeoples?

I don't have a formal definition for intolerance - to borrow from Justice Stewart, I know it when I see it.

I saw it in Prager's column about Ellison's swearing in.

As far as there being no ignorant ideas, only different world views, we're just going to have to agree to disagree on that. If it makes you feel more comfortable about some of the ideas you're willing to entertain to consider me intolerant for calling intolerance ignorant, so be it.

Interestingly enough, what lead up to Germany 1938 was the idea that there are no ignorant ideas, just different world views.

I won't even mention his name because he's like these mass killers and does what he does to get attention. To name him is to give him his thrill. No substance and a wasted space on my computer screen.
