Steve King is prove than reason can escape human beings. My point is that as human beings, we have the ability to reason and think things out. We should know better. Rape might be normal for lions. For human beings, it is criminal behavior.

Humans have incredible intelligence, and at the same time, many refuse to use it. Many people act based on their own crude and nasty lusts of passion than from reason and known better. Many people know better but choose to hurt people.

Well, maybe not in HIS family.


Seriously, what kind of sick mind even thinks that kind of logic. It REALLY makes one suspect that he thinks that kind of behavior is normal and acceptable.
WHY is that?

Which brings me back to my 2nd sentence.
I meant it as a snide remark, but maybe it's just the simple truth.

Ken
What he said is partly TRUE even if the way he said it was not very clear. How many people in Europe are NOT the result of a conquering army that raped every woman in sight after killing the men and/or enslaving them???? Thousands of German kids are the result of a Russian rape room from WW2.

Wild guess, you decided to ignore the rest of my post because you had no rebuttal, and you didn't like what I had to say.

Yup. Or that they use their intelligence to advance unethical or immoral actions.

I saw this on the news--it was so bizarre. She said she kind of wanted to leave because nobody else was there, but she thought it would be rude.

If King cannot attract more than one person to a town hall, I think you can stick a fork in him.
