Communists — about 95% of the time — are simply idealists who would like to see a world that is more fair and equal.  There is no doubt that "ownership" is the cause of great suffering.  The ideal of communism takes away that suffering.

I am not a communist, because I am too much of a realist — ie, this ideal is not possible with the mindset of humanity as it stands today.  But I can very much appreciate the beauty of their ideal, and that the goal is one of fairness for all.  It is a very humanitarian ideal.

No, they do not deserve to be cursed.

   I think the statement  "Communism is the goal"  is more than enough.

You should praise the ACLU, not curse them. They protect your rights, rights that are very much being taken away from you.

Should NAMBLA have ANY rights? The ACLU has gone to bat for them.

 
What were they defending them against?

Edit: Here we go:
Why did the ACLU represent NAMBLA?
The ACLU of Massachusetts' represented members of NAMBLA because, while the ACLU does not advocate sexual relationships between adults and children, we do advocate robust freedom of speech. This lawsuit struck at the heart of the First Amendment. It is easy to defend freedom of speech when the message is something people find reasonable. The defense of freedom of speech is most critical when the message is one most people reject. For more information about the case, please contact the ACLU of Massachusetts.

Everyone has a right to freedom of speech, even if the speech seems vile. Because even the most vile must be protected, so that your right to free speech is protected too.

War on Christmas?  Sure.  They probably think the conservatives aren't happy with sucking all the hard earned cash from consumers with only ONE major shopping season.  

 



Well I know the original post for topic had nothing to do with "conservatives" so I had to ask the question.

Only the left can get on Santa Claus ?  What's wrong with someone from the right doing it ?

The left should be applauding the religious right for going along with this.

Obama Shelves Christmas-Tree Tax

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is going to delay implementation and revisit a proposed new 15 cent fee on fresh-cut Christmas trees,  sources tell ABC News. The fee, requested by the National Christmas Tree Association in 2009, was first announced in the Federal Registry yesterday and has generated criticism of President Obama from conservative media outlets.
