Yikes. I wonder when they were banned in the US.

Looking now...

According to Dr. Wiki Pedia. 1988.

Edit* also says banned in Canada in 1989?
But says alternatives popped up.

The conservatives, after all, are human beings. Instead of making them into monsters, perhaps it would help if you tried to empathize, to see their point of view, even when you disagree. Do you not expect the same respect for your thoughts and opinions?

At times, when you use language as this, you come across as a lemming that "toes the line" instead of someone that takes each issue one at a time.

My old church has teamed with these guys in the past, as well as Union Rescue Mission. Both are solid. :-)

It is neither liberal nor conservative to think that this tragic shooting is the same as Trayvon Martin.

It is ignorant. It is uninformed to do so. It is a failure to take each of these cases one at a time.

Please take my comments on the quality of their arguments and not notch tallies on where my opinions may lie on your perceived political spectrum. Simply because one is conservative on one issue and liberal on the other does not mean that there is any greater quality to the thoughts that helped them arrive at whatever conclusion.

Standing in front of a dart board is a very bad idea.
