The key word you're conveniently ignoring there is "essential".

Also, keep in mind...

"The wise make proverbs, and fools repeat them."
-- Isaac Disraeli



(I'm safe, because Disraeli could hardly be construed as wise, in case Enos is bordering on one of his "irony" speeches.)

cutting freedoms is wrong

EDIT: agree with tae kwan do completely


Twisting my argument for limited freedom (you know, laws and such) to sound like I'm promoting a "no freedom" policy does not make an intelligent point. All you've proven is that you can take cheap, inaccurate shots at what I've said - not that you can make any kind on logical counterpoint yourself.

Hey now... That's only fair if included with the shot at liberals as well.

Also, to anyone who had their precious feelings hurt by my "liberals" or "convservatives" remarks... Get over it. Both those statements were intended mostly as jokes. At the very least, they apply to some more than others, so don't assume I was targeting you. I wasn't targeting any one person specifically.

lol - yeah, but the liberal comment wasn't as original or funny.  But your conservative comment works almost as well for liberals too.

Oh, and I didn't think you were targeting me - I certainly don't consider myself "liberal".

No, but some people around here... *cough, 12 year old in the aviator glasses, cough* ...might have misunderstood.

Das ist Leben, das Sie kennen? Aber er, der von der Vergangenheit erlernen nicht kann, wird verurteilt, um es zu wiederholen, obwohl die Welt zur Hölle in einem handbasket irgendwie geht.
