    If you have nothing to say, say nothing.

    I don't understand why so many people want the US to be like Europe in this respect. I suppose there's no appreciation for diversity over this issue.

    An impasse my good man.

    The definition of insanity is to do the same thing (trying to convince you to widen your gaze) over and over again, and expect a different result.

    So I figured I'd go for a more theatrical approach, that... while it may lack in certain substantive categories... gives me much more pleasure than playing the game you want me to.

    So if you want to have a real discussion with me Nic....

    All you need to do is one thing.

    Admit the equal validity of my point, as I have yours...

    (differing policies work in different places, and a view that the right to bear arms doesn't exist is fine with me as long as it works for the people in that other place)

    Put up or shut up.

    Do you always think in platitudes? Of course different policies work in different places, but the same policy also works in different places. Americans are not a special breed of humans. However, since you already admitted that you find my point inconceivable, I do not expect us to have a real discussion.

    *yawn*

    I do not take orders from inferiors.
    You wouldn't think you were anyone's inferior even if you met God himself.

    I will take this as the cop out it is.

    You said it may work for us, but mentioned nothing of it's validity as a concept.

    Why must you always construct arguments giving only enough information for your side that you can argue from a position of strength.

    You are one of the least forthcoming members of this forum.

    At least I'm willing to lay all my cards on the table, and take what blows I have earned.

    You on the other hand are the intellectual equivalent of the serial killer who tortures small animals as a child.

    Perhaps we should use other words. Yes, different circumstances require different means, but different circumstances do not preclude identical goals.

    That would be a cop-out.

    I am thankful for that.

    I'm just happy to see you can be thankful for anything.

    Have a nice day.

    Hopefully the weather isn't too bad in Germany.

    I can find things I like even in those who on the whole make me want conduct a scorched Earth campaign.

    I like how you rise to the challenge. And also how you stick to your guns.

    How would this campaign work, exactly?


    The public has the power to change the constitution.
    Why would the public want to change the constitution to give up a right in this case?
    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
