Steph, certainly you're allowed to be fascinated. I'll always appreciate being fascinating. But I don't appreciate comments that seem to judge and assume. Like I said, I'm always willing to discuss something with you, but I'm not interested in trading sharp, baseless comments. And by "one", I meant topic, not one particular story.

"And the use of torture? I've made a conscious decision to stay out of that one." More than one story came up, but it's not important. I am allowed to be fascinated by what people deem unacceptable while giving other things an argument or a pass. It is my right to be fascinated.

Oops! No that's not what I meant to say. I'm sure you know how it was supposed to go :). I can't believe I missed an article about wiretapping U.S. citizens. Surely you've seen me complain about the PATRIOT act? As far as the politicization of the Justice department and the firing of federal prosecutors, I guess I was in class when those stories came up. I don't know enough about those subjects to have an opinion on them anyway. And the use of torture? I've made a conscious decision to stay out of that one.

"a single action of Bush's attorney generals that came up for discussion." The politicization of the Justice Department, the firing of federal prosecutors, the use of torture, the wiretapping of U.S. citizens... "So yes, I feel it's unacceptable for our Attorney General to believe the right to bear arms is an individual right." Is that what you meant to say?

Steph, I'm not trying to be 'combative', I just want an example of a single action of Bush's attorney generals that came up for discussion. Honestly, I can't comment on every single story on Citizen and sometimes I stay out of things because a) I don't have anything to add that hasn't already been said, or b) I don't have a strongly developed opinion on the matter. I just don't want you to assume you know what my opinion is simply because I don't leave a comment. So yes, I feel it's unacceptable for our Attorney General to believe the right to bear arms is an individual right. But there are many, many other things that I can't stomach. If you want to know my opinion about something, I'd be more than happy to discuss anything with you.

The actions by the Bush Justice Department that came up for discussion here on Citizen. You've never been a serious critic here of Bush's attorney generals. There's no law that says you have to be, so there's no need to get defensive or combative.

Steph, which actions are those?

Mich, it's not about what you've supported, it's about what actions you never found unacceptable.

I was so happy to hear him say water boarding is torture and that the President can't say otherwise. Things keep happening where I'm like...wait...I'm happy about this? Such a weird feeling.

I always heard it pronounced Shith-eed for sh!thead. Worst names I've ever seen are some my sister had in her CCMS days, Uh-huh, uh-uh and mmm-hmm. Now those are bad. She also had seven that were named after the seven deadly sins. The woman actually had the last two just so she could finish them out. All before she was 25 too.

"Sorry, basing it on past comments - literary winces as it were."Just out of curiosity, what actions by the current Dept. of Justice are you referring to that I supported in past comments?

Zeze, thank you! I appreciate that. I actually have difficulty picking a label for my politics too. There are problems with every party and philosophy. I guess the closest thing is libertarianism.

Pop, all those names you just gave us, never existed. Snopes.com disproved it. And i believe they never existed either. because why? here, in my office, i have heard the "a nurse i know, who knows someone who knew someone said that they had a kid named (exactly the names you said) at the hospital" its an urban legend. anyway, I dont think that kid should be taken away because of a name, he should be taken away only if his parents were abusing him mentally physically or emotionally or withholding basic needs.

Yes I agree with you that it's not quite the same. But I still think that more is needed to remove the child from that home.Freedom comes with lots of shitty decisions.

It doesn't matter. If the parents aren't starving or beating or molesting or otherwise causing harm to their child, then the state has no right to take the child away just because we find the parents' thinking to be objectionable.

Can we agree that those stupid names aren't names of one of the most evil people on the earth? There's a difference.
