Conquest is seldom just.



It's not my place in life to make people happy. Don't talk to me unless you're prepared to watch me slaughter cows you hold sacred. Don't talk to me unless you're prepared to have your basic assumptions challenged. If you want bunnies in light, talk to someone else.

Justice can never be conquest, and this is what I would call some long overdue justice.

I'm sure the destitute and oppressed Halliburton Energy board members are desparately hoping for justice to be done. Why, some of these people are so poor that they can barely keep up the payments on their fifth houses and fifteenth cars.

What a heartwarming display of the average rightwingnut's respect for freedom of speech. Lynch any dissenters in the name of freedom lately, hypocrite?

Yeah, no shit.

I love it when the right wing screwballs get all pissy when it comes to respecting the country, but when someone protests they have a fit and make fun of them.

Look, idiots! Protesting is totally American! Get a clue.

Go to hell. He wasn't saying that in the freedom of speech anymore than porn on the internet is a first amendment right. I need to know where your buried so I can shit on your grave.

Free speech does not extend to yelling 'fire' in a crowded theater or suggesting that someone should be lynched.

Idiot. Porn is protected speech.

Sort of. Court decisions give states & localities a lot more leeway in regulating porn than you'd think.

It ought to be, but it ain't.

So they claim, but moans and groans ain't what I consider speech. They might have the 'right' to allow access on the net, however I do not see how it falls under speech. Possibly press, but that's still shaky.

Little boy? How cheap. Saying something actionable? So your not just trying to flame bait me, but leading me into some bullshit tangle. LoL. Nope, it's not going to happen you crap shoot of a human being. I choose my words carefully. What good do threats do on this board. The only threats you'll get from me is the promise to openly flame you on this board whenever you spew bullshit forth unto the masses.

Not the whole thing, just were Enlightenment staggered on, and spewed bullshit forth from the opening in that melon that sits on his shoulders.

Don't be absurd. The freedom of speech infers a freedom of expression. Porn is legally protected expression and hurts no one.

It has veered off-topic, so I say split it or something, but see if it gets worse before HoS-ing the split thread.

All right, people. I've cleaned the Good luck thread again. Again, stay on the fucking topic in that particular thread and debate the war here or somewhere else.

Fuck.

Not if a state or locality can convince a federal court that the porn in question fits the legal definition of obscenity.

Obscenity also hurts no one. The notion that people should have the right to outlaw anything which offends them (even if no material harm can be established) is absurd.

I think that just because some people and corporations will profit by it, it doesn't necessarily make it wrong.
