Mike,
You mention health care.
Come to Canada and explore our health care system.
It leaves some things to be desired and is definately not perfect but it beats the hell out of the United States system.

Crimes motivated by racial, ethnic and religious prejudice as well as crimes against homosexuals because they are homosexual have a certain "contagious" quality about them; it's sort of a copy-cat situation. One bigot is emboldened by another bigot's actions. If appropriate crimes are labelled as "hate crimes", it shows that the government is very serious about punishing this kind of specialized behavior. It sends a strong signal that we will not allow another Nazi-type uprising.

I'm beginning an interesting book written by a president of the Commission On Human Rights. It's about the origins of psychiatry and the damaging effect it has had on society.
Nice to see that some of our beliefs have finally converged.

Partly tongue and cheek, because I'm not entirely sure what your exact opinion on psychiatry is, but I'm not exactly a fan of the profession either.

But that justification in support of "hate crime" laws is why I support them too.

Welcome back, 80s_U2_Is_The_Best, although I've not decided yet if I'm "back" or not; my life has gotten decidedly busier but in a very good way. It is good to see an old familiar friend such as yourself. I visited your large state over New Years for a certain football game in Dallas.

I liked the outcome of that certain game.

I hate Tech.

Well there's at least one person around here who would say you're nuts for saying that, but thanks all the same-I really appreciate that

I'm going to try not to argue this time around (but I try that every time upon my return), though I might still pop up with an opinion or two.

Bollocks to that person! There's plenty more who'd agree with 80s.

This group (CCHR) is a front for scientology.
