I'm empathetic with everyone who deserves my empathy. I start with the most defenseless and go from there. The ones I have the least empathy for are those who would sacrfice others for their own selfishness.

The best thing, IMHO, to do with them is to continue refocus them on the question. Eventually they just get tired and go away.

Only once did such a person tell me that the question was invalid. That was an interesting discussion.

In this case EEEEEEE is just destroying his credibility for his stance on ... well ... almost anything.

OK<..... you are empathetic. ... I'll give you that....
Now that we've agreed on that one topic, tell me...using your best empathy now: At what age is a child too young to be tortured? Or is torture ok at any age?

I remember our conversations quite well. And you have yet to explain your support of the slaughter of innocent children as collateral damage in a war that protects Americans.

You state over and over that the klling of ALL children is immoral; yet you then turn around and condone killing in war.

And apparently you DO have time for me because you respond to every one of my posts. I must be hitting a few nerves, huh?

Bush was incompetent.

As to your assertion that someone can't read--get real. If they couldn't read, how could they argue with you on a text driven forum?
Bush turned a bitter ally who threatened America into a stable prosperous peaceful democracy. There isn't much better result you can have from a war. In addition, Bin Laden threatened to kill millions of Americans. Bush prevented that from happening. At most, 65,000 died in the Iraq War. Well under the carnage Bin Laden promised. We will never be able to thank George W. Bush enough.

By the way, it's not "empathetic". It's "empathic". There's no such word as "empathetic". Get a dictionary.

Good God, it's scary if this kind of liberal pap is getting anywhere NEAR our young people. I'm so glad my son got 5s on his AP tests. Now he doesn't have to take History and English classes in college; areas of study that are hotbeds of kooky liberal professors. Thank God he's in Engineering, an area that is relatively devoid of the leftwing crap.

EEE - it wasn't dumbass Bush's role or place to turn any country into a "peaceful democracy."

That's not OUR problem...we need to focus on Americans, not people 6,000 miles away.

They didn't want it anyway, yet Bush still felt the need to risk the lives of millions of AMERICAN young men for his little folly, not to mention digging us down the crapper economically.
