And you are another one who simply can't resist this thread of "troglodytes".
By your repeated claims: a graduate of a prestigious law school, accomplished attorney, world traveler, generous philanthropist & contributor, a regular "bon vivant".
Yet you feel compelled to repeatedly lower yourself to posting in this thread, often. What could you possibly hope to accomplish?
Do you think others find your clever one-liners amusing? Or that you hope to teach someone something using your vast knowledge exceptional IQ, and irresistible personality?
Newsflash Mr Toad. Out of the regular, semi-regular, visitors, drive-by Bush bashers, newbies, & trolls, you fare somewhere between newbies & trolls on the respect-o-meter.
George Soros is a rat bastard, along with anyone who "admires" him. Much like Sean Penn,(and other celebs) who cozied up to
commie dictators such as Castro and Hugo Chavez, you are nothing more than an anti-American zealot.
Yer lucky to be living in a country that allows you to have such freedoms (for now). Noting you sure don't seem to be very busy for an accomplished attorney.
BTW, it wasn't an "apology for Soros".
Bon Vivant--I like it.

Mr. Toad--not so much.

"I did not then nor have I EVER said that liberals are traitors. I said SOROS is, and I stand by that."

Still no specific action you can cite to show his treasonous conduct?

Remember, treason doesn't include being frightened into submission as a child (Just like Pope Benedict who was in the Hitler Youth at 17).

Now, to my original post about Swanson and Buehner:

"For the purposes of this question, the hypothetical daughter is UNDER 18."

Robbie, you're trying to change the issue.
The conservative christian broadcaster didn't specify children, he was speaking of any unmarried woman.

Of course chlidren are another issue. My daughter is long raised, but I do think parents have a primary right to raise their children.

BUT... Children should also have the right to private, confidential access to licensed professional counselers.

No one loses their Constitution right to privacy just because they're under 18.

No Roberta, the problem is Buehner's statement:

"What that means is that a father who has a daughter, she’s not free, she doesn’t have the feminist independence that we hear so much about to make contracts, to buy drugs, to engage in activities without the father’s consent."

He said "she doesn’t have the feminist independence that we hear so much about to make contracts", he ain't talkin' about a 12 year old, he's talking about unmarried adult women.

GET THIS STRAIGHT.
I NEVER SAID ANYTHING, ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT "LIBERALS MANIPULATING THE SYSTEM." I ONLY TALKED ABOUT SOROS.
And it's not a question of my being "loyal" to anyone here. I can assure you that had any of the above gone as far out of line as you have over the last week, I'd be chewing THEM out, too. I am in fact catching up on some overdue business even as we speak.
Do you really think yelling is going to accomplish anything other than making you look foolish?

It certainly isn't going to cause me to apologize for something I didn't do, any more than "Pernie" will apologize for calling BlackHeart a turd.

'liberals manipulating the system' was MY turn of phrase - and I attributed it to 'some of us'....not to 'Roberta G.'

Don't take yourself so seriously - you'll live longer.

The military that overthrew Morsi is the main recipient of the $1.3 billion yearly US aid package to Egypt. You could say that the US 'owns' the Egyptian military that just overthrew its democratically-elected leader. "
And apparently this doesn't merit discussion, on a current events thread.

Islamic militants have killed 29 schoolchildren and a teacher in an attack on a boarding school in northeastern Nigeria.

Survivors told of seeing pupils burned alive in the attack, thought to have been carried out in the early hours of Saturday 6 July by members of the Boko Haram terror group, whose name means "Western education is sacrilege".

I think because no one has any clue what side to take until it becomes apparent who's in charge. Even our own government hasn't declared for either side.

http://m.ibtimes.co.uk/egypt-violence-cairo-a...
Widespread violence is sweeping through Egypt threatening to deepen the crisis in the country as supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi remain defiant.

More than 26 people have been killed across Egypt. Since the recent wave of protests began, at least 50 people have been killed. The Muslim Brotherhood said the dead include 17 of its members.

At least a dozen people have been killed in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria and more than 200 injured. Many of them are thought to have been shot dead.

The protests turned violent shortly after Morsi's supporters were reported to have been killed on the outskirts of Cairo.

You are right! But, I have to say that I have seen "christians" behave pretty badly. I have gotten in a few arguments with them. That is why I have stayed away from the so called "christian" threads. Lots of 'em are pseudo Christians but they are still perceived as Christians.

Ah yes. conservative Nixon's unConstitutional secret war in Cambodia and Laos, another sad chapter in the history of American Imperialism:
"Operation Menu was the codename of a covert United States Strategic Air Command (SAC) bombing campaign conducted in eastern Cambodia and Laos from 18 March 1969 until 26 May 1970, during the Vietnam War."
"For four years Menu remained unknown to Congress as a whole although as previously mentioned five Congressmen had been informed. That situation changed in December 1972, when Major Knight wrote a letter to Senator William Proxmire (D, WI), asking for "clarification" as to U.S. policy on the bombing of Cambodia. Knight, who had become concerned over the legality[29] of his actions, had complained to his superior officer, Colonel David Patterson. He then received several bad efficiency reports, which ruined his career, and he had been discharged from the Air Force.
According to Air Force historian Captain Earl H. Tilford: "Deception to fool the enemy was one thing, but lying to Congress and key members of the government, including the chief of staff of the Air Force and the secretary of the Air Force, was something else."
"Khmer Rouge fighters and Cambodian civilians: 40,000–150,000 killed"
Yes, we certainly "liberated" SEA.
None of which has jack to do with what occurred in Cambodia when the US withdrew from Vietnam. Or are you a chomskyite killing fields denier ?

Good link.

Egyptian politics, and this last 'election' sound a heckuva lot like the American version.

: "...so now we have a choice between the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Original regime.....because the independents and progressives aren't allowed to participate in the run-off election...."

IMO, our choices were just as frustrating in our last election.

His view of history is slightly one sided.

Funny how he mentions Nixon's secret war but he conveniently leaves out what China and the Russians were doing in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

Nor does he mention that Jimmy Carter moved that same Cold War conflict with the Soviets to Afghanistan by sending in arms to the Mujahadeen dragging the Soviets into a Vietnam of their own.

But, it would be too complex to go into that kind of detail

This discussion prodded some google searching and I found this:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asi...

Khmer Rouge leader accepts responsibility for Cambodia's Killing Fields
A leader of the Cambodian Khmer Rouge expressed remorse on Thursday for the deaths of an estimated 1.7 million people during the "Killing Fields" regime in the 1970s and accepted responsibility for the first time.

But I'm pretty sure that Miner49er couldn't possibly have meant this Cambodia after 1973 could he? He couldn't really be that ignorant.

Between 1975 and 1979, the school was renamed Tuol Sleng - Hill Of The Poisonous Trees.
The sound of children playing and laughing was replaced by screams for mercy as horror stalked the classrooms and corridors.
The communist Khmer Rouge had seized control of Cambodia and transformed the school into a 're- education centre' to hold enemies of 'agrarian socialism'(a return to the Stone Age with peasants working by hand in the fields, and all modern aspects of life outlawed).
Pol Pot, the French-educated Khmer Rouge leader, decreed a new Cambodian calendar to start again at Year Zero - a true beginning of the world in which all should live as they did at the dawn of time.
Pot, who styled himself Brother Number One, ordered that the entire population should live off the land, with no medicine and starvation rations.
Dissidents were eliminated.'To keep you is no benefit - to destroy you no loss,' was his favoured mantra.
After driving the entire Cambodian population out of towns and cities, the Khmer Rouge separated those who could read, write or wore glasses - anyone, in fact, who betrayed signs of being educated.
They were taken to Tuol Sleng, where the classrooms were modified in anticipation of their arrival.
Desks and chairs were removed and replaced with iron bed frames, manacles and instruments of torture.
