What's unfair about the world's self-appointed policeman being held to a higher standard than someone who's the equivalent of a delusional street corner junkie?

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship. The girl can chew with her mouth open, that if you love her, you do not care. If you do not lover her, if her pinkie toe is half an inch deviant, the relationship is doomed. - Icon

Coincidence that Obama came out in favour of same-sex marriage hours before a story on Romney's bullying? Nah.

As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.

Both would sort of spook me out. But, of course you are aware that the pic of GZ used above is at least 7 years old and that GZ now is a mere shadow of his former self, in terms of size? I dunno? Ms. Warren there, why, she's a Cherokee! I wouldn't want her stalking me!
