Any serious person is clear that trillions must be spent to stop the invading hordes. No way are we going to spend it on foolish things like medical care. So don't touch that stash unless you're going to give it to my protector buddies.

And have you seen their books? The ones that say To Serve Man? It's a cookbook--burn it!

This does sum up his position pretty darn well. Again more posts of Utopia.

He is a true believer. Havn't run into that thought since I asked a 10 year old.


Actually, I find that to be more accurate a description of your point of view. Keep around something we can strive to fix just because you think it is needed to defeat an apparently worse threat.

How am I the one saying DON'T cure one problem so that we can use it to potentially fix another, meanwhile making said other problem continually worse.

I'm just saying we CAN get ride of the "common cold" which you are saying is needed to defend against the other "evils."
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

It is fun to drag you guys out into the sunlight once in a while. At least it shows people your true ideas. Cool.

Well you stated a lack of need for government. I think that qualifies. Now you want to act coy?

I took this as saying you liked to drag anarchist's into the light and show their true ideas.

And you are saying the "true idea" shown are . . . support of anarchy? Now' that's a surprise. How is that showing the true colours of an anarchist?

By the by, Cyberqat, you compared far right libertarian as being essentially the same as an anarchist, though that can be true, that would be an anarcho capitalist. Interestingly enough there are as many variations of anarchists, and libertarians, as there are other political views. From anarcho capitalist to anarcho socialists.

Then there are those "F everybody" anarchists like the jerks who trashed places in toronto during the g20.

Let's face it, Toronto wasn't that attractive in the first place.

Another good way to keep peace is abject appeasement and surrender. Usually, you can avert a war by giving those who would instigate it everything they want. That has other downsides, though.

I can picture it with some of these guys "Welcome by Taliban brother! No, I'm not an Muslim, I don't believe in God but (swack goes the sword)"

Well I see where you changegd the "G" in God to a small letter. Good for you.

I did not ask you to respect in what people believe in but rather to respect their right to do so and treat them accordingly and you answer with "Why should I?" It is not about you. You know that what I posted was to respect the right for someone to believe in something and for you to show them the respect they deserve as it is what they believe. No one is asking or telling you to believe in someones elses belief. In reading your post I am wonderinig just what The USA has done to you that you have no respect for it. Pretty gutsy stand on your part, of course this is on the internet and not in person.

Why would you care what others believe? Why would that bother you? Is it because you believe in nothing no God, no form of religion? Perhaps you feel empty and just want to strike out at those who do. I do not know your reason and that is why I mentioned in one of my posts that I am not able to comment on some of your remarks as I do not know what your motivation is. But this is getting off topic as the topic that you and I were discussing was your lack of respect for others and their deepest beliefs. If it makes you feel better to not capatilize certain words then go ahead and do so. Even though it shows disrespect in this case to The "USA" and its citizens and more so to those who have given their life for what they believe in. I am sure that you would not want me to disrespect Robert would you? Yet if he has the same views as you it gives me the right to do do accordinig to you. Wow the shoe does not feel so good now does it? Do you see my point? I would never disrespect Robert because I have the decency to respect your point of view. Not agree with it just respect it and your right to do so.


This summarizes some of my vies nicely. Not 100%, but close.

Not really....I believe many of the suicide bombers are gay Muslims trying to get around it. Give 'em a bar where they can do their thing and not blow 'up' things. I say that not letting Muslims be gay and lesbian in public and in their cultural garb is a violation of their civil rights! I demand all mosques have a gay room where gay muslims can go, do whatever they want, or take away the mosques tax exemption.

Not that I haven't been a part of it in past, but these threads quickly devolve into nasty personal attacks.

I thought the common cold was a virus, there are no cures for viruses. Right?

It quickly does because I think most of us (I include me in this at times.) tend to forget that there are other valid opinions. I have been part of it in the past as well.
