    Then you probably agree with most Conservatives that Hate crimes legislation is stupid???
    Why is it worse to murder somebody because you "hate" him versus murder in coincidence with another crime?

    A habitual criminal kills as a means to an end. A serial killer derives pleasure from the act. That's not to say that the habitual criminal isn't a sadist, or the serial killer doesn't commit other crimes in the course of killing, just that the motives differ. The end result is the same.

    They vilify Cain and West because Cain. West, Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, DeRoy Murdock and a host of other black conservatives are the intellectual underground railroad. They threaten to lead people out of bondage to the welfare state, which feeds and houses them in return for votes, but denies them the tools to advance. Today's plantation doesn't use whips and chains, it fosters dependency through a culture of failure. This is also why they oppose vouchers for private schools, because the public schools provide the indoctrination in that culture. It's where kids are taught not to work, but to expect rewards.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Law & Order is racist. The white guy is ALWAYS the bad guy and the black guy is always an accomplished lawyer.

    I was actually suprised at how often Robinette was treated as an "Uncle Tom" in that show. The prominent black people doing everything but calling him a house ...

    I was dissapointed that his character seemed to cave to that side when he showed back up as a defense attorney.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
