You know how you are afraid of black people because they are supposedly more inclined to commit crimes and you know how you are scared of certain neighborhoods and parts of town because of crime. Well, if abortion was illegal imagine the crime and black people we have now multiplied to the power of at least 20 because people would have kids they neglected/did not want or was not ready to raise.

I am socially progressive as I could care less what people do, but I have proven to be more fiscally conservative then you are on this board because you support a big government. Typically libertarians fit this socially progressive fiscally conservative mold.

I am aware with the whole Freakanomics theory, but it still does not make it any less brutal. This isn't a debate on abortion, it was just to show how horribly flawed the idiotic "Jesus was a liberal" argument is.

No, not caring about what people do is not socially progressive. It is socially apathetic, and there is a difference. And how do I support a big government? I think Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid should be abolished, along with every single federal agency besides the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security.

What is YOUR definition of social progressive because obviously you have to be a tree hugging hippie to not be a social conservative by your response.

Cobain, I realize your expertise in just about all matters human is remarkably extensive, but does it now extend to reading my mind?





P.S. There's "a rat" in separate. That's old school edumacation.

Unbelievable. As I said earlier, these people undoubtedly have their reasons for stealing. However, they are in direct conflict with mine.

I will say though I am not surprised that it was targeted. It is one of the few buildings in the immediate area that does not have secure parking or a gate, and the parking area is obscured from the street going about 20 feet down a hill behind the building. One could waltz right in off of Peachtree and steal to their hearts delight, and wouldn't even be seen by any police officer on patrol. Not that the police would actually see anything going on as they tear down that part of Peachtree like they have a woman in labor in the back seat.

That building does have security cameras though, so hopefully they aren't just for show and they caught who committed the crime.
