    Interesting op ed today from the two leads of republicans for choice- they are leaving the gop because fiscal conservatism and denying birth control donít jive together. Well duh.
    They also claim the GOP downfall started in 1980.

    Why didn't they leave in 1980? The writing has been on the wall since then.

    And THIS is why we need to keep reporting the atrocities. Minds can be changed, even if it sometimes takes 38 years.

    What point are you trying to make?

    There were enough people against slavery in 1800 to end it, had the south not gotten the 3/5 rule for representation. And the country ended up going through a war to end the hell of slavery.

    If it takes shaming people into understanding how horrible it is to take kids from their parents, so be it. Especially in the face of the "reasons" that it's being justified. If you really need to hear reasons that someone thinks it's ok to make a judgement, that's your problem, not mine. I see zero justification to take kids from their parents other than for the direct safety for the kids.

    Further proof the NYTimes sucks. Their constant need to print these "A Bio of A Trump Voter" stories ranks up there with CNN stories about how [insert speech here] is when Trump became Presidential.

    You can report atrocities all you want. Armenia was a statistic as was Rawanda.

    Yup. NYT is the enemy. Cowards in the face of Republican attacks, they continue to print RNC press releases in the hopes that they won't be accused of "bias". A shell of its former self.

    Again, the one person who likes to pretend that they speak with some kind of moral authority comes out with a real winner.

    I'm confused why a "family values" person like yourself, joe, isn't outraged by kids being taken from their parents.

    A LOT of people give a darn. It's people like you, who apparently don't, that are really odd.

    But thank you from having to read any "moral" posts from you- you've lost the ground where you can make that argument.

    Sorry- I thought I was replying to Brent.

    If people don't think that the treatment is horrible, then they NEED to be shown it. If after repeating that showing, they still think it's ok- then their side is perfectly clear. They are not someone I would want to really engage with.

    And let's remind ourselves that many of the people who want to deny basic human rights on people who are in a horrible situation- they also want to defend the 2nd at all costs. And I remind them, once again, if you want people to defend your rights, you should go out of your way to defend other's rights. Otherwise, you are making a BS argument for support. Lead by example.

    You missed the point - as usual. Let me simplify it.

    Unless society is shocked, it will do nothing.
    Armenia - nothing. Granted it was 100 years ago.
    Germany in WW2. Eventually, but 6 million would say too late.
    Rawanda - hand wringing. Nothing

    The West DID get aroused over the former Yugoslavia and people were tried. Few and far between.

    So you don't think that a story that explores why people continue to support Trump despite things like the separation of families, the indictment of people from his campaign, etc..., is a worthwhile story to write? I suppose putting a human face to people that everyone here prefers to demonize kind of sucks, but I don't know that its a story that is not worth exploring.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
