Still wondering here what you plan to do with the "lazy" people, if anything.

RE: Can a conservative be an atheist?
I don't know how to fucking quote, so

"There are countless other examples of far-left stupidity. Many of today's liberals, for instance, absolutely love to disparage white, male, Americans, calling them "sexist", "homophobic", "bigoted". They also love to bring Christianity to shame for the same offenses. Yet, when you mention that Islam also has problems with misogyny, homophobia, and other forms of hate, you are branded a "bigot", a "racist", a "xenophobe", etc. Today's left does not know how to "liberal well". They have everything ass backwards. "

Nope.
I can't stand ANY religion that dictates how I should act, dress, or behave because I have a vagina. But in the good old USA, we have homegrown right-wing religious fuckers who would love nothing more than to keep women silent, submissive and dependent.

RE: Can a conservative be an atheist?
George Wills, the conservative columnist, is an atheist.

https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com...n-atheist/ In the interview from the link they asked a few questions.

RCR: Do you believe in God?

I’m an atheist. An agnostic is someone who is not sure; I’m pretty sure. I see no evidence of God. The basic question in life is not, “Is there a God,” but “Why does anything exist?” St. Thomas Aquinas said that there must be a first cause for everything, and we call the first cause God. Fine, but it just has no hold on me.

RCR: Does that present a problem for you as a conservative?

GW: No. The Republican Party’s base is largely religious. It would be impossible for me to run for high office as a Republican. Since I have no desire to run for office, it’s a minor inconvenience! I think William F. Buckley put it well when he said that a conservative need not be religious, but he cannot despise religion. Russell Kirk never quite fathomed this, which is one of the reasons why I’m not a big fan of The Conservative Mind. For him, conservatism without religion is meaningless.

So there you have it. Yes, you can be a conservative and an atheist. I may not care much for George Will's views but at least he came out against trump and finds him to be below par and horrible for the country. I wish more conservatives felt this way.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Shadow, you either hit reply and then delete the parts you don't want to quote; hit the little square after reply and before report (quote this post, I think) and then in the quick reply section you'll get this: "You have selected one or more posts to quote. Quote these posts now or deselect them., where quote these posts is clickable and will do just this.

Or, you copy and paste and then use [ quote ] and [ / quote ] but without spaces (this won't show who you're quoting though)

Pretty much the classic definition of Liberalism.

Question: Did you reject all the divinity nonsense mainly for a) lack of evidence regarding the existence of deities or for b) ethical / moral reasons regarding e.g. "christian values"?

The oft spouted meme that we would be better off without less government involvement may or may not be true.

It's really hilarious he's posting on a government invented technology.

How many people do you actually *know* who are "free-loading" on society, and if not, where do you get your information ?

I'm just stating my overall opinion. Ice ages did happen, therefore by necessity, warming happened. Else we would still be in an ice age. We also started off much hotter which would have necessitated cooling. I'm using my observations to form an opinion. Different from others I would certainly agree.

It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.

Nothing. Tent cities, hovels, a deserted island? Why should we be forced at gunpoint to provided for those who are lazy?
