Wow!

I think the theory is that they aren't really Black because their opinions are White, so Black Lives Matter people would be justified in killing them because it would help eliminate White Oppression?

It's tortuous "logic", but what isn't these days?

The important question is, do Diamond and Silk self-identify as Black or White or maybe as Native Americans?

Edit: If I were them, I think I'd feel like an Asian...

Real People are happy to tell others Who these others Really are.

Me.. I self identify as a Dragon.

A dragon? You identify as a dragon? A teenage mutant ninja dragon?

I was doing that before it was cool.

Does a human heart have rights while alone because it has human DNA? Clearly not. So do you have to have a brain then? What about a human brain by itself then, still alive, thinking and functioning? Then what about a human brain in my dragon's body? Who's got the rights if I swap brains with a human? Me (my brain in a human's body) or the other fellow (human in a dragon's body)?

What about a human brain that's been downloaded perfectly, thought for thought, into a computer and thinks it's still human? No human DNA there. But interestingly enough, if the thought patterns generate rights, an animal who thinks as a human should have them. The fact that I am talking to you now should grant me rights whatever my body looks like. But then you must set standards about thought/consciousness and define some humans out of personhood.

Absolutely punish me for that. Hopefully criminally irresponsible is enough. This is exactly why we have laws about what you can and can't do while you're driving, and I think that's just the bees' knees: You know what's expected of you beforehand.

If I swerved into someone else's car because I hit an ice slick, do you really want me punished then? What if I breathed fire on the ice slick so I wouldn't skid and I burned somebody's face?

"Hello Mr. Dragon. I am freezing to death and my fingers are too cold to keep trying to light this fire."

"Alright. I shall light the fire for you."

"Oh thank you Mr. Dragon! You saved my..."

Fwoomp. A bit of ash gets away and somebody's gas tank goes up in flames. Do you see how I can be at fault for something without being culpable for it? There comes a point when you just can't punish everybody for everything.

Oh, and since you seem to be confused about what I am and what I am not, I won't take a picture because I know you'll send it to the Dragonslayers' Guild straight away, but I found a few examples that look a bit like me, though my species has a beaked snout. It's actually nice, because the little teeth in the front tend to get damaged when you use the tip of your maw to tear off little bits of whatever large animal you're trying to eat.

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

The Opposition (the one I call the lizard) also self identifies as a Dragon. What a coincidence!

Do dragons get along well together? I think not.

Yes Craig, very serious. That's the property of the left and really doesn't have much to do with libertarian. Nothing does really. Anything that is pretended to is impossible fantasies.

This is definitely a leftist priority and would be poison to Trump or the corrupted rightist kind of government that would promote this sort of thing happening to protect police.

Libertarians in general think government unions are an evil idea, and also think that information such as what sort of things our police have been "disciplined" for and how they have been "disciplined" are rightfully in the realm of public knowledge, that we have a right to know and the people in government have an obligation to tell us.

Its "progressives" that are claiming Sovereign immunity for government and government workers.
