Good memory, Hukt. You're spot on.
I don't consider cigarettes or alcohol "drugs" because "drugs" implies either illegal narcotics or prescription medications.
I also don't consider Tylenol a "drug", even though it can be classified as one.
Well, you're wrong. Just because YOU limit what the word "drug" means (and probably so you don't have to consider yourself a drug addict) doesn't mean that cigarettes and alcohol are not drugs and both most definitely are.

And yes- OTC drugs are also DRUGS. That is why they are CALLED "drugs".

Geez.......

Not sure who has stooped to a new low here- me for providing the definition of drugs for you or you for not knowing what drugs are!

Amazing!

American, etc. are NATIONALITIES- a nationality is not synonymous with HERITAGE.
Why?

Heritage relates to valued objects such as tradition, culture, etc.

Why do you people think America doesn't have culture or traditions?

Why do you vehemently fight against calling someone calling themself American?

Why aren't the parents, say, Greek-Italian?(Assuming their family came from Greece)
That being the hypothetical case, why wouldn't you call the baby Greek-Italian-American?
Oh wait, the Greek family migrated from Egypt....
Ugh, you people.
Because it IS Italian-American, that's why.

As to your what-if, I would gladly call the baby Greek-Italian-American.

<quoted text>A person is NOT just one thing you moron. If someone from Italy moves here and becomes a citizen then they are BOTH Italian and a American citizen. Wow, you're amazingly dense sometimes. You need to take a basic course in DNA.
Uh huh...

So the ethnic background of the Italian means nothing? His family came from nowhere but Italy?

You're losing ground here....

<quoted text>It's very telling that RR can never list specifically what 'rights' gays have that the rest of us don't. Weird.
I think he thinks gays have the legal right to parade around naked. I guess that means RR wants that same (non-existent) legal right.

He did provide pics of people naked at gay parades; however, he provided nothing to prove they are never arrested for being naked in public despite his claim that gay people "never" are arrested for being naked in public.

I'm sure it's the most familiar one to you. For the vast majority of religious people, that is how they choose their religion. Had you been born in Classical Greece you'd probably worship Zeus. Had you been born in pre-Columbia Mexico around 600 AD you'd probably be sacrificing to Quetzalcoatl. Had you been born in modern Tehran you'd likely be Muslim. But just because a religion is pervasive in the time and place you live doesn't mean it's true.
Religions are simply reflections of the values and culture of the societies that invent them. Christianity is no different. It was essentially a reboot of Judaism. Likewise Islam was a later cultural revision. And even Christianity has changed rather drastically since the councils of Nicea decided what documents to include in the canon of the Bible. As we've discussed before, slavery is no linger considered moral, even though the Bible says it's fine, because when it's various parts were written, slavery was considered normal. Likewise racism is rejected now. And we are seeing society recognize that homophobia is also immoral, and Christianity will have to adapt to that change too. But to go back to the original point, all religions are cultural projections, but that doesn't make any of them true.
I believe it's true. I believe God exists. I believe Jesus died for our sins & I believe in heaven.

So?

Yet again, you are trying to make nationality and ethnicity mean one and the same thing.

A person born in the USA whose ancestors come from Greece can rightly refer to themselves as a Greek-American.

Greek would indicate their heritage/roots/background while American would indicate the country in which they were born.

Please. You correlate blacks with higher crime rates, but you can't show any causation. Crime is a result of poverty, education, and opportunity, not race. And in this country, that often (but certainly not always) means black neighborhoods have more crime and problems, but that is not because the people in those neighborhoods have a higher level of melanin in their skin.
That is nonsense. Crime is mainly the result of a lack or moral sense. We all have opportunity yet we all do not take advantage of it to steal or victimize others. Poverty does not expalin away the ten fold difference in black crime rates. Eduation is far less of a factor than IQ for felons of all races tend to have a lower IQ average, around 85.

Melanin also does not cause anybody to do anything. It's not the skin color, it's the behaviors that so often go along with it.

Don't EVER call me out like that RR (I don't have to dig to find what I'm looking for).
I'm calling you out.

You've yet to show a post of mine where I said cigarettes don't contain a drug, which is what you accused me of saying.

I fully grasp that you are a homophobe and that you view homosexuals differently than I do and that you have contempt, disdain and rancor toward homosexuals whereas I do not.
Siiiiiigh...... You're incessant assumptions are getting tiresome.

Instead if telling me what you think I am or believe, why don't you just stick to the discussion? You're being ignorantly absurd.

That the quarter is worth more than the 4 pennies doesn't change the fact that in QUANTITY, there are more pennies than there are quarters.
Got it.

So you define minority as quantity.

Nuff said.

And you don't have to consider a zebra to be an equine since the word equine is most often associated with horses.

Doesn't make the zebra any less of an equine though just because YOU don't consider a zebra to be one.....

And here:

"GENERIC NAME: acetaminophen
BRAND NAME: Tylenol and others

DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Acetaminophen belongs to a class of *****drugs***** called analgesics (pain relievers) and antipyretics (fever reducers). The exact mechanism of action of acetaminophen is not known.

http://www.medicinenet.com/acetaminophen/arti...

If you swallow a bottle or two of Tylenol,(the pills IN the bottles and NOT the bottles themselves) you will most likely have to go to the hospital to be treated for a DRUG overdose.

So RR is a Native American?
I guess you'd have to ask RR, but I don't think so, but he has also claimed that Native Americans are not Native Americans since they had to first come from someplace else as well.....

What I see as the issue on this with RR is his inability to accept that there is a marked difference between nationality and heritage/ethnicity.

Also, he seems to think it makes him a TRULY good American to proclaim that he is nothing other than 100% American.
