Why do atheists hate her so much? Is it one of those "looks horrible without religious context" things like many of God's actions in the Old Testament?

Yes, but I miss almost everyone compared to who we have now.

Massive, massive HP. "He's a war criminal who killed hundreds of thousands of civilians but nice guy FF Smiley" = bad argument
Uh, George W. Bush did not kill hundreds of thousands of civilians.
Yeah he did, ever heard of the Iraq war?

Did Bush personally go there to kill people? As in march out of the office all the way to Iraq, killed a ton of people and then went back?

What is a "Democrat President"? You might not be one of the brighter lights of this forum, but surely distinguishing between nouns and adjectives is within your capabilities?

President from the Democratic Party of the United States.
13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of George W Bush as a person on: May 19, 2017, 02:11:25 am
FF.

Well, I was specifically asking about the Democrats.

Has what he is done qualified as criminal enough as lying under oath about an extramarital affair?
16  General Politics / Individual Politics / Most corrupt Democrat President? on: May 17, 2017, 03:24:37 am
When asked to name the most corrupt presidents,  the names that always come up-Grant, Harding, and Nixon- are all Republicans.  did any of the Democrat  president's measure up to a level of corruption as those three?
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Ronald Reagan on: May 15, 2017, 06:01:24 pm
I have always given him credit for restoring America's self-esteem. Jesse Helms was right that he was the man we needed at the time. However, he is way too flawed for me to consider him a FF. His administration was involved in countless scandals, his fiscal policy was both fiscally and socially irresponsible, and he inspired an entire generation of the wrong kind of people to get into politics. HP on balance, but neither a terrible person nor one of the worst presidents in US history.

Technically speaking, his administration was the most corrupt in modern history.

So modern is basically since the mid 70's?

Ok I was wrong. I meant the most corrupt in the history of the US:

Quote
The presidency of Ronald Reagan in the United States was marked by multiple scandals, resulting in the investigation, indictment, or conviction of over 138 administration officials, the largest number for any U.S. president.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reagan_administration_scandals

Reagan's  administration had the most number of indictments and convictions of  any president.  It's astounding that Reagan wasn't impeached for  the Iran-Contra affair. His cabinet also rigged contracts so that they  rewarded contributors to his campaign through the HUD. Scandals also  plagued the EPA under Reagan.

Reagan is a prime example of the halo effect. Since he looked good...people just ignore his scandals.

Grant, Harding, and Nixon all were more corrupt.

19  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should Holocaust denial be a criminal offense? on: May 13, 2017, 08:09:25 pm
Just make a comparison

In Germany and in Austria, Holocaust denial is a criminal offense.
In the USA, the denial that the cause of the Civil War was slavery is not a criminal offense.

Which hate groups are stronger? Neonazis in Germany and Austria or Neoconfederates in the USA?

Except slavery wasn't the only cause of the Civil War.

Dammit. I want to order it and it turns out that of all places it's pressed in New Zealand.

Not really a fan of this concept of the Jewish and Christian God being different from the Muslim God.

Where does this shirt say that?

Note the many Stars of David.
