Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

EP, Yes, John Locke and the idea of universal rights is very European, though they did not spring full-grown from the head of the French Revolution, especially that part of it that so quickly degenerated into the Reign of Terror and was well criticized by such as Edmund Burke, a supporter of much of the American philosophy.

Re: Danish Newspaper And Mohammed Cartoon

Maybe not "have a sense of humor," but I would say that the violence is pretty outrageous. To me, if it's wrong to depict Muhammad as a violent terrorist, then it's even more wrong to carry out violence and terror in the name of defending Muhammad's honor. That's like you falling on somebody after they've made fun of you for being clumsy.

The cartoons were originally commisioned to test the boundaries of free speech in Denmark.

He questioned whether political correctness in regards to Muslims was hindering free speech in the country. The newspaper drawings were meant as a test--granted, a rather childish one.

Very true. Democrats often get blamed for programs that Republicans put in place. Government moves slowly. Often times, the results of Republican policies don't manifest fully until power has changed hands. It often takes a Democrat to come in and try to clean up the mess after the Republicans have spent far too much time screwing it up. I actually feel sorry for the Democrat who has to clean up Bush's misdirected "War on Terror".
