So what you are saying then that IF BENNET or any other enemy conservative DID advocate mass abortion for Black babies - paying Black women to have them - YOU WOULDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT because it is legal? What ARE YOU SAYING MBM? It seems that you just presented "Manufactured Outrage" about Bennett's comments. If in fact hundreds of thousands of Black women CHOOSE to have an abortion and this IN FACT does reduce the level of crime THE FACT THAT THEY "CHOSE" to abort the child is the...

I'm asking the question - not making a statement. Your insight is what I'm looking for here. Where do souls come from? They go to Heaven but are conjured from . . .? God is in Heaven. Wouldn't it seem reasonable to think that He creates new souls there?

AMEN! What I would really like is for conservatives to explain is what exactly gays are taking from me if they get married. I have a position on many contravertial issues, but they all have one thing in common. They directly, or at least indirectly, affect me. If this minister is willing to sell his soul to the Klan just to suppress someone that has nothing to do with him, I say why wait for thier approval? Grab a sheet, burn a cross, and get on with it!

Nice try. We were talking about BLACK gay people when I asked you the question and you responded, AND I QUOTE: "let black gays march with the gay rights types......they have more in common than I do with any of them" ( Full Text here ) Because you do contradict yourself. You express something and then claim to not feel one way or the other. As the quote above demonstrates, you clearly have formed opinions about gay people, the gay movement, gay BLACK people, etc.

The ECONOMIC UNIT is just an abstract representation for many possible economic entities that all have certain things in common. It could be a single person living alone. It could be a family of 4. It could be a hippy commune. It could be a multi-billion dollar corporation. In some ways you could compare it to a water tank. Water flowing in is income. Water flowing out is expenses. But the tank is not prefect, there is leakage from the bottom which is depreciation. A single man living alone...

NO! It is exactly that unbalance relationship that leads to a stalled, halted or forsaken "dialogue." Arguably, people could say Dr. King and Pres. Lydon Johnson started a "dialogue." For sure, a number of common folk or community leaders, mostly educators and religious leaders have had "dialogues." But hardly any thing that can be regarded as a serious "dialogue" where it counts, in the halls of power. As for Clinton's deal, you can research and look for opinions about that "conversation".
