A lot of the means and spite perpetrated on this site could be eliminated by simply requiring contributors actual names, the way Letters to the Editor are screened.
Everyone stays respectful, even in disagreement -- at least theoretically.

"Those are OEA talking points."
Perfect example f the logical fallacy known as "argument ad hominem" -- disregard the point made in favor of attacking the maker, shifting attention away from the fact that you have no valid response.
Thank you, soviets, for providing us all with a lesson in fallacious thinking!

Charters schools fail worse; their owners, the "businessmen," succeed, though, in siphoning off tax dollars into their private pockets.

A bobble head bobbing in the Tea Party bubble - - that sums up Soviets to a tee!
(The Obama-haters hate this treaty because the president likes it, just as they hate their own ideas until the president espouses them, and then, suddenly, stuff they liked becomes stuff they hate! Their psychosis is remarkable! They cannot agree with President Obama even when it comes to stuff they thought up!)

Soviets longs for the old Soviet Union, the glory days when the state could elbow itself into everyone's private life!

An individual has the right to terminate a pregnancy -- that is as far as the State should go. A fertilized egg is not recognized as a person until it is capable of living outside the womb -- again Pretty much settled law.
If you recognize the presence of life at conception, that is also your right, and you should not violate your conscience; but believing so does not compel others to agree.
Your religious beliefs are just that -- beliefs. Imposing ones beliefs on others is not what America is about.

Again, Soviets's slippery-slope, foot-in-the-door, camel's-nose-under-the-tent fantasy-bubble arguments impress no one; a marital contract entered into by consenting adults (absent criminal intent) ain't none yo (or the state's) BIDness, according to the SCOTUS.
(And that just fries your chaps, don't it, Sovietski? Maybe you should just go to some 3rd world principality, like Guyana, where you can revive the old Soviet Union, get yourself named Head Busybody, and then shove your big old nose right up into everyone else's BIDness and get your snoot all up into everyone's private life where you think it belongs.)
