“We have silent e but all the other letters are audible, they produce another sound, that’s all!”
How is the H pronounced in the French words histoire, herbe and honnête? Or how about the S in Paris?
So that’s the reason for night lights. I’m glad I didn’t know that when I was a kid.
You just have the wrong kind of tomatoes. Plant indeterminate tomatoes, and they’ll be ripening all summer, instead of all at once in the fall like determinate tomatoes do.
I couldn’t get into that position if my life depended on it.
“So, our language is half German, half French”
Don’t forget my ancestors, the vikings. There are loads of Nordic words in English.
“Of course each individual has nuances in their thoughts and are capable of independence. ”
That’s not what you said in your previous post.
“The Liberal view is … they do not want … they want…”
You clearly implied that all “liberals” have the same views for the same reason. You then go on to say in your second post:
“Thus the slippery slope that Liberals seem to want…”
Even after saying that there can be individual differences, you didn’t say “some liberals” or “most liberals”, but rather implied that all liberals want the same thing.
“the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few”
… Or of the one.
“you’re living in a Star Trek universe”
Let’s see… an earth with no wars, no poverty, nearly all diseases practically instantly cured, very nearly no crime, everybody equal… Doesn’t sound like that bad of a world to live in.
“thinking you can cast aside the concept of ‘freedom’ and impose any structure”
You really need to get a dictionary and read it, or at least, re-read the definition (not my interpretation or “high sounding expression”), that I posted above. Liberalism is in favor of individual freedoms.
“ However they do not want climate change control to save the earth (the earth has abided for several billion years and will continued to do so.), they want if to maintain status quo and impose more restrictions on individual freedoms”
This is what is known as a “straw-man” argument. Instead of asking a liberal what his views actually are, and why he has those views, which would require you to think and come up with a rational answer to those views, you assign to him the views you want him to have, because they require little or no thought to oppose. I know many people you would lable as “liberals”, and none of them think the things you claim. Everyone knows that the earth itself, and possibly much of the life on it, will continue to exist with or without any action on our part, but if we don’t do something about climate change, we won’t continue to exist. The people you call “liberals” (i.e. people who know what they’re talking about) want to change the status quo, because they want to continue to live on this planet, and they want their grandchildren and their grandchildren’s grandchildren to be able to live here.
“which goes against your original description of Liberals.”
It’s not my description. It’s the dictionary definition of the word’s “liberal” and “liberalism”. I’m sure you’ve heard of dictionaries. They’re these big books that tell you what words mean. If you don’t have one, you can check out https://www.dictionary.com/browse/liberal and https://www.dictionary.com/browse/liberalism to confirm it.
“The current problem is the “Liberals” now are not about individual freedoms and expression”
That’s only part of the problem. The fact is that conservatives don’t want that either. Both sides want only their views to be accepted, and they are both equally intolerant of each other.
Sending Shannon off to Oz wouldn’t be a bad idea. I think Luann might want “Toto” to stay behind, though.
