Interesting, but irrelevant. Unless, of course, you find the struggle against the communists - or, as Orwell called them the "Red fascists" - to be "nothing". In either case, the "babies going off to war for nothing" meme was, and is, nonsense.

"Allowing law-abiding people to arm themselves offers more than piece of mind for those individuals — it pays off for everybody through lower crime rates. Statistics from the FBI’s Uniformed Crime Report of 2007 show that states with right-to-carry laws have a 30% lower homicide rate, 46% lower robbery, and 12% lower aggravated assault rate and a 22% lower overall violent crime rate than do states without such laws. That is why more and more states have passed right-to-carry laws over the past decade." -- Human Events

"But businesses in and of themselves don’t create jobs. Demand creates jobs. Specifically, consumer demand. The very same consumers who possess a dwindling amount of the nation’s total wealth." -- Natey

Really? What was the "demand" for the iPod before Apple invented it? The personal computer before IBM invented it? The only thing that "has been proven thoroughly ineffective time and again" is socialism.

“Guns aren’t even the most lethal mass murder weapon. According to data compiled by Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections, guns killed an average of 4.92 victims per mass murder in the United States during the 20th century, just edging out knives, blunt objects, and bare hands, which killed 4.52 people per incident. Fire killed 6.82 people per mass murder, while explosives far outpaced the other options at 20.82. Of the 25 deadliest mass murders in the 20th century, only 52 percent involved guns.” -- Slate

You can have him, we'll take David Mamet:

"I’m afraid my neighbors will be subsidized as well. I don’t live in a particularly high-dollar neighborhood." -- Miss Cellania

Well, that makes it alright then. Why work? Just feel free to vote yourself all the wealth from the "otherside of town" that you feel entitled to.

"... my pre-existing condition is that I am over 50 and low income. It was never affordable until now, and according to the charts, will be subsidized." -- Miss Cellania

What a wonderful day for you, comrade. Now the government will send someone with a gun to your neighbors door to insist that they help pay for your healthcare. You must be so proud.

Apparently the Constitution has been trumped not by the Commerce Clause, but the IRS Code. Where are the limits of government? Can they now require that I buy an American made car, or pay the "tax"? Eat my broccoli, or pay the "tax"? Lose weight, stop smoking and drinking, get a haircut, or pay the "tax"?

This is a liberal wet dream. This ruling allows that a tiny pseudo-intellectual elite to dictate the personal decisions of hundreds of millions of Americans. And to enforce their dictates through the imposition of a malignant Skinnerian behavior modification program.

"Are you implying that people who violate the core tenets of Christianity are not Christians?"

No, that is what you are saying. I am saying that those who would commit the crimes being allege would have to do so in direct contradiction to Christian teaching and in violation of the core tenets of their professed faith, not that those who call themselves Christian never commit crimes. If men were angels they would have no need for moral betterment.

What you are implying is that the reason that these men were violent is because they subscribed to the Christian religion. I am saying that you can eliminate Christianity and man will still be a brute, it is not the Christian religion that makes him so. In fact, just the opposite. Men commit horrible crimes in the absence of religion, as evidenced by the murderous savagery of the secular socialist regimes. And it was, for the most part, those who called themselves Christians that put an end to that butchery. The Christian faith is aspirational and built on the conviction that mankind is "fallen", yet redeemable. It asks men to rise above their nature and to resist the impulse to violence.

Christian societies have been no more violent and, in fact, less violent than others which is why Western civilization managed to flourish. And as hard as it might be for those with little or no historical perspective to believe Christian societies have also been more tolerant.

So, when someone says that men, who claim to be Christians, have been violent and the reason for their violence is Christianity, that is simply a false statement.

"The millions of people burned at the stake, slaughtered in battle, tortured, and persecuted by Christians in the name of Christianity would agree that “intolerance is the first lesson of Christianity.” Anyone who cannot see that is either ignorant of the history of Christianity or neck-deep in denial."

Anyone who had done those things "in the name of Christianity" would have violated Christianity's core tenets. So, your attempt to lay blame for humanity's nature on Christ's teachings is nothing more than ignorant bigotry.

Not so, with secular butchers, like the Nazis and the communists, who are responsible for 200 million deaths and counting. And anyone who cannot see that is either ignorant of the history or neck-deep in denial.
