    Not to mention the bazillion exemptions she wrangled for Obamacare.

        That's the official answer.
        The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

          She's definitely overstating the consequences, but ironically, your fellow Republican seer posted this thread just a few hours earlier. And, uh...based on that and many more of his threads, let's just say that if a Republican like him ever got into power, I absolutely would fear for civilization.

            Oh, the irony. Not that seer is likely to get elected.

              While you're busying throwing cheap shots while of course never actually addressing any arguments, you disagree that politically empowering someone who keeps trying to defend a convicted and proven domestic abuser might be worrisome for civilization?

                I disagree that seer is likely to become politically empowered. You're fear-mongering, just like San Fran Nan (hence the irony).

                I also disagree with your characterization of seer's thread (and your *ahem* cheap shots), but that's not the topic of this one. Do try to stay on topic instead of attempting to put others on the defensive.

                  As do I.

                  Not at all, because I'm confident that no one as extreme as seer will have a position of political power. Hence the joke "IF something as ridiculous as that ever happened, I'd be worried. But luckily it won't happen."

                  Sure, but I noticed that you put quite a few people on the defensive yourself.

                    Are you really not bright enough to understand what seer was getting at? Or are all liberals equally nuts as Pelosi?
                    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

                      If I'm not, would you care to enlighten me and explain what he was getting at? Because his apparent insistence on defending Ray Rice for the sake of critiquing feminism (which he doesn't seem to understand) is quite troubling, and it would greatly ease my mind to know that he's more sane than he appeared to be in that thread.

                      Seeing as I'm not a liberal, how would I know?

                        Yeah civilization sure had trouble flourishing when gender equality as we know it didn't exist.

                          And what kinda idiot uses seer as an example of an extremist. At least use me or Epo. 0/10 for effort.

                            The prospect of you being in power doesn't trouble me at all. In fact, that'd be really amusing.

                            Meanwhile, the prospect of Epoetker being in power is so mind-boggling that I can't even begin to conceive of it. It's like trying to wrap your mind around the idea of actual infinities.

                              huh. So what do you consider yourself?

                                Nice backpedal.

                                Maybe you could show me a post of yours where you're not arguing from a liberal position? I don't recall seeing any, though I admittedly have not read all your posts.
