If I get on the 2003-on SL forum do I really have to talk about them or can I bring up my dog feeding problem?

irrespective how often i post replies or how often i visit, my question was a mere curiosity regarding sticky topic that was in fact off-topic.

Does this mean that maybe someone can, next time, post the question say about war in Iraq or maybe about toe fungus problem in patagonia?[}:)]

Curiosity killed the cat but I ain't no cat.
Sorry if I poked my finger in someone's eye.
Of the various venues for discussion I frequent, this is the most free relative to topic and style. That being the case, post your topic....unless you're a Neoprog.





I'm only kidding about the neoprog stuff[:D]

Some folks feel the same about the domfekking sloppy way that "Fascist" or "Nazi" gets used. But I guess when you're a domfekk sloppy thinker it makes sense.

Actually, eye pokers are quite welcome here, as are middle finger wavers, nasty old people,pissed off liberals, flag draped conservatives and curmudgeons. Did I leave anyone out?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

RE: Top GOP Fascist declares war on Judicial Branch

Tom Delay's future cell mate pipes in:


INJUDICIOUS LANGUAGE


Sen. John Cornyn's comments linking violence against judges to their rulings are inaccurate and incendiary. He should repudiate them


Lead Editorial
The Houston Chronicle

It's hard to imagine any elected official, much less Sen. John Cornyn, a former Texas Supreme Court justice and state attorney general, making a speech on the Senate floor suggesting that recent incidents of violence directed against judges might be caused by jurists who make "political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public."

ADVERTISEMENT

Although Cornyn did say such violence is unjustified, his statement implied that judges bring such harm on themselves by ruling improperly. According to Cornyn, "It causes a lot of people, including me, great distress to see judges use the authority that they have been given to make raw political or ideological decisions."

Cornyn's comments followed House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's recent warning that judges will "answer for their behavior" in declining to intervene in the Terri Schiavo case before her death. Such rhetoric creates a climate in which unstable individuals might think attacks on judges are deserved, if not actually condoned.

If officials made similar statements professing understanding for the motives of terrorists, they would be rightly denounced as unpatriotic. Yet individuals who threaten or seek to harm members of this country's independent judiciary are, like terrorists, striking at a fundamental principle of our democratic system.

Cornyn attempts to excuse his remarks by saying he was only wondering aloud. Even the junior senator from Texas should know that more is expected on the floor of the world's greatest debating society. He said he was surprised at the reaction, but that is less an apology than regret that he has been criticized.

The campaign by Republicans to allow Congress to dictate to the judiciary in specific cases such as Schiavo violates the constitutionally mandated separation of powers among executive, legislative and judicial branches of government. Judges are bound by their oath of office to follow the law, not the opinions of elected officials playing to particular constituencies. In their attack on the judiciary, Cornyn and DeLay are really calling for their own version of politically inspired judicial activism.

What makes Cornyn's statement impossible to fathom is that politics was not the motive in recent cases in which killers targeted judges. A rapist escaping from a courthouse in Atlanta shot and killed a state judge and three other people. A ruling in a medical malpractice case led to the murder of the mother and husband of a Chicago federal judge by a mentally unbalanced plaintiff who later killed himself. The only common thread in these cases is the tragedy of jurists who paid a very high price for their devotion to public service.

Sen. Cornyn and Rep. DeLay owe the country — and its dedicated judges — unconditional apologies and specific disavowal of their insensitive and irresponsible remarks.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
