By Sheldon Richman of the Libertarian Institute.

No mistake in his mind on Trump being out of step on this issue. Why is it that this libertarian forum has so many doubters?

Don't you want to hear what libertarians are saying Jeff? Would you like to turn this forum into an insulting forum between you and Kaz?

I think the challenges to your brand of pseudo-libertarianism are just too hard for you to handle.

Your drinking problem and the reasons for it are not the concerns of this forum. Stop trying to make it so.

challenge my real libertarian ideals. Don't give up like burnsred did out of frustration.

Is football still losing viewers and revenue?

They must be. Team owners are starting to exercise their rights.

I'm all for seeing a showdown brought on by the players. Mainly to make the game safer for themselves.

But I don't watch it because it's what you call barbarian.

I couldn't care less... But the sponsors will if it causes ratings to fall even further.

Watch out because all the black players could decide to withdraw their services! Football will become f------l overnight.

Actually not too likely a big deal because the owners wouldn't be able to get erections without their friends the players pretending their owners are cool little guys.

"Begs the question" means "Avoids the question."

Or it's a logical fallacy in which one supports a point by making an assertion that assumes the point is true. 

For example: 

"Why can't I be nude on this beach?"

"Because you can't just walk around naked on a beach!"

That example occurs to me because people used to be able to walk be nude at public beaches, saunas and pools in Germany until the genius Angela Merkel imported hundreds of thousands of sexually frustrated men from a culture which teaches that a woman not covering her head is inviting rape. 

Just sayin' . . .

Mr. Creator, Flags, Football, and avoiding the question is probably what Sheldon Richman meant. He's a leading libertarian so it's too early for you to start criticizing him.

If you thought they were my words then you're excused. And if you find talking like that titillating then please do, and spice it up to make it interesting for adults too.

Not to mention bigoted discrimination against your religion's competition.

Would you say that christianity teaching African people to not use condoms, which results in the AIDS epidemic being spread to thousands of people, a crime on the same proportion as women covering their heads or not?

Quote:
Sacralization of the flag and uniform – and the anger directed at even mild dissent – are further demonstrations that, contrary to popular myth, church and state in this country have not been separated. They have been fused. The church is the state, and the state is the church. That’s where nationalism takes you.


Indeed, and according to the EEOC on Religious Discrimination And Employment Policies/Practices:
Quote:
An employee cannot be forced to participate (or not participate) in a religious activity as a condition of employment.
