You don't need to save posts to make your argument. You didn't even bother to note which words you disagreed with or why. You might as well post nothing at all as to post what you did here. It's simply not enough to make bare claims.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
The crickets refer to you ignoring all of the data I cited from your own link that contradicts you.

Why the hell would Wikipedia put it in the "firearm crimes" section if it didn't have to do with firearm crimes?
I don't know the authors' reasons, but it appears that he/they wanted to indicate the background crime rate upon which the gun crime statistics are contrasted. The gun crime rate is apparently not only lower in the UK than the US, but it's lower against a higher overall crime rate.

But clearly, the stats you cited were not about gun crimes,as the other data that actually specified guns contradicted it. You STILL haven't addressed those statistics. That's what the crickets were about, and they're STILL chirping.

You can't win an arguments in this way. You can claim victory, but you critical and analytic eyes wince when you do.

No you didn't say it, karl did. You just agreed with him.
What karl said was, "Your (personal) willingness to see children die, so that you can "feel" more like a man is disgusting."

Sorry, but them's the facts. You are willfully and stubbornly refusing to see or acknowledge the fact that children in homes with guns are much more likely to find a gun and kill themselves with it than in homes without gun. There is no possible way to successfully contradict that except to show that there are more children whose lives were saved by a gun than were lost in those homes, and we both know - we ALL know - that you cannot do that because it isn't nearly the case, and you would have done so already if you could.

So, your "f_ck you" is merely a proxy "f_ck them" to all those children. I don't blame you for not wanting to be connected to such an idea. But you are. Your entire demeanor in this debate si that you just don't care. Karl said it, I agreed, and you don't like it. Sorry. The conclusion stands, however much you are offended. What other conclusion is possible?

We are as offended by your indifference as you are by being called on it.

I disagree. That's just not credible. Nobody would subject their family to that risk knowing what you know if they weren't afraid to live unarmed.

Furthermore, you're not credible about what your motives are. You're clearly playing the ostrich here.

I agree with everything you said but the question was to you not everyone else.
"I would say that having children is a benefit"
Most at least 98% of mothers I know would say this.
But we're not talking about children. We're talking about fetuses.

The potential benefit of a child doesn't make the fetus not a parasite.

People used to swallow tapeworm eggs to lose weight. They perceived a benefit. But the tapeworm remained a parasite.

These resources refer to organisms that have both parasitic and free living stages, like the creature in the Alien series:

The human being is the same. It's earliest form parasitizes its host, the mother. So what? Why so much resistance to the use of this word? Because it is insulting or demeaning to a fetus?

Why do people insist on calling it anti-choice or pro-choice, when in fact it is Pro-life and anti-life.
The choice is life or death it is that simple. So you are either pro life or pro death.
Actually it's not Catcher understand each other perfectly
on this subject. The idea you have is a distraction, you see it isn't about religion or abortion really. Though that's what they want it to seem . But it's a ruse to distract you from what the real agenda is.

Control

If the law is passed to prevent choice , it has taken choice from the people and rested in the the governments hands. You no longer have the choice and you must comply. Now both of us are really against abortion. But we are both very against the control.
It is the woman's right to choose.

Oh course we want her to make the right decision, if she doesn't want her baby she can give it to someone who would really really want one. The same is true with gun control.

Control.

I don't want no more stinking control.
If we allow the government to control us we have no control.
Now oddly enough I don't think he feels the same about guns.
But to me it's the chipping away of our own control that they want. Until we are complete robots that have nothing to do but ask what we have to do.

They have been working on this for 200 years.
And sadly enough to my surprise I found they can take our 2nd amendment and it would be legal, with nothing we could do about it. If the house and senate agree to it. It's like this
They wrote it into our laws already enabling it to be if they choose so.

I will show you how.

You see by being a body of people "We the People"
You are god granted the right to bear arms.
N/P right yes problem..

As citizen of the US However.......you only have privileges granted. AND
If the United States outlaws any privileges you must comply as a citizen of the USA. Of course you can defy but we know where that leads. I see how we teeter on razor and how they use the law to control us now. I urge you to watch all five of these videos but it is explained how it works in them.

Oddly enough there are groups springing up calling themselves
"sovereign people" or sovereign citizens and you would have to google that as it takes too much explanation.

But here is the video explaining People Vs Citizens and the law.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Here is where it starts should you want to see the full explanation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

I was shocked and awed that should they decide they can strip us with only passing federal laws. But many states will resist, and the outcome of that could be disastrous.

BTW I'm pro choice to choose my destiny and not be told "you have too". But that doesn't mean I want anyone to kill their baby.

<quoted text>BTW, you claim you are pro-choice yet use misnomers such as "baby" and "murder" to describe abortion.
And you buy into the BS of pics of "babies" aborted being "murdered" and that of abortion being "gruesome".
Sure doesn't sound like someone who is pro-choice and if you really believe a baby is what is aborted and that abortion is murder and that z/e/f have wills, you're pretty screwed up to be pro-choice.
What you have expressed here are some of the most rabid views of the anti-choice crowd.
Good observation. And it's an enigma.

I suppose that it's possible to rabidly anti-abortion yet still pro-choice. I think that most pro-choice people would love to hear that all pregnancies were wanted, and all fetuses delivered.

I find abortion repulsive, would be loathe to do one, send a lover to have one, or if I were a woman, have one myself. I'll bet that you and most pro-choice advocates are close to that position as well.

But I don't use charged words and phrases "baby," "murder," or "abortion on demand." Nor do you.

Hogwash IANS , you too are calling a fetus a behavior
The fact remains it is not a parasite, it is in a parasitical stage of development . But it is also in the machine that makes it
and like all machines you have to feed it material and energy to produce it's product. If it were not in the making machine it would not ever have been in production

That's why it can't be called a parasite it is in a normal state of production, what we call procreation.
To call it a parasite it would have to have been introduced from the exterior.

The problem I see with this is the fact that the Choice you speak of was not orihinally a choice. It is again the SCOTUS injecting itslef in the decision. So it would not actually be removal of the choice as much as it would be restoring the sanctity of life.

I do understand what you are saying but my point is that in order to make it more palatable they are dehumanizing the child there by making it easier to kill it.
This is practice that is as old as mankind. Dehumanize someone and they become easy to kill. In WWII Germans were not Germans they were NAZIs so it was ok to kill them. In Viet Nam and Korea the locals were not really peole they were Slopes, Slants, Gooks, Charlie so it was OK to kill them. The terminology used in the abortion deal is the same thing. It isn't a baby or a child it is a fetus, or a zygot or whatever else they come up with.

As to the Second Ammendment I can see your point and the point of the videos but that is where we must hold their feet to the fire. A simple law can not override a right that is guaranteed under the Constitution. They must ammend the Constitution in order to do that.

Bottom line is that no subjecy is 100% balck and white there are multiple shades of grey involved. The problem is that there are those out there like some of the fools on this forum that will support the erosion of our rights.

I'm not romanticizing it, OCB. I'm just looking at it in a very logical & emotionless way.
Me, too, which is why I describe a fetus as a parasitic life form based on the organism's relationship to its host, and not on whether or not I find the word demeaning to the organism.

The balance is held in check by the states than govern us.
They would have to agree with passing those laws , and seriously doubtful they could muster the votes to do so. After all they do not want another revolution.
And that's what could possibly happen.

Suddenly, you are not satisfied with mere references to prior posts? Suddenly, you expect answers to be summarized anew or linked to, and are not satisfied with the bare claim that the matter has already been squashed?

If so, then you're learning, and I trust that we won't be seeing similar answers from you in the future.

How about a little accuracy: a fetus is being killed against its interests.

You would be horrified if I said to a pregnant woman who was experiencing a threatened miscarriage that her god was trying to murder her unborn baby against its will. It's nothing but emotive language that you appear willing to use in the case of a woman seeking an elective abortion, but probably not with one that you were not trying to manipulate with guilt.

What do you think of this:

Life is a biological status. The sperm and the egg were alive, and continue to live as a zygote and through all other stages of human life until old age and senility.

Personhood and citizenship - the basis of human and civil rights respectively - are each a legal status.

You're a living human organism from conception, but you're not a person with rights until your culture says you are.
