Or if not then, you probably drew the line in 2007 when he said he would eliminate earmarks as president before he doubled them his first year in office. Or maybe the time in 2004 when he said it was unconstitutional for the Executive branch to bypass Congress for use of military force in foreign nations, which he then decided didn't apply when he decided to drone people in Libya, Somalia, and Yemen without Congressional approval. Or maybe it was the time he was against the embargo against Cuba in 2004 before he decided he changed his mind when it became clear winning the Cuban vote in Florida would be advised for someone with Presidential aspirations.

Or maybe you ignored all that bullshit of his, because you were too busy supporting him for closing Guantanamo Bay.

I don't know what I did to get off his block list, but I'm looking forward to more of him.

It's essentially always true in literary theory and "legal" philosophy.

You mean like A Theory of Justice or Anarchy, State and Utopia?

A "shag rug" is one of the funniest Americanisms in British English. Particularly excellent here.

I was just thinking that this thread and the last few pages of the Architecture thread are the best threak on SF since FNB got banned.

It's a pity this gem is taking place out in the SF boondocks.

Wait till he discovers: Table-scaping on some faggy blog. He will loose years of his life contemplating cigarette cases and agate obelisks.

The good news is that I have two new plaques to hang on the Wall of Hate: Vernon's & Foo's.

The bad news is that I'm not sure where to hang them, so I'm gonna have to start a thread with elevation drawings to get ya'll's input. Stay tuned.

First, political philosophy is not the same as legal philosophy. Second, A Theory of Justice is terrible philosophy, whatever the sort.

Either stephenhero is a particularly shameless individual or he thinks most members here are stupid. I'm sure people will be interested to see what other things you can pretend to know about.

 

I've been having an interesting conversation with StephenHero through personal messaging--he seems to have this odd habit of suddenly trying to play the role of the adorable moron every time he is shown to be wrong.

 

Anyways, mixing up political philo for legal philo is very StephenHeroesque...More importantly, A theory of justice was good.

Ahh, stephenhero...I don't think you understand the architecture that's in place when you are set on ignore (he can't read your posts)

You're gonna have to work harder than this if you want to get your work out of the guest bathroom.

You remind me of my car mechanic, he is very proud of the fact that he knows German names of every little part in internal combustion engine, it makes him feel learned.
post #285 of 2411

But why does he need to know the names in German? Mistaking political and legal philosophy would be like mistaking a piston for the the exhaust.  

 

If I knew someone who makes terrible comparisons, then I might associate that person with you.

 

 

(BTW, knowing all the parts of the internal combustion engine and, presumably, properly understanding how it works is not something to be giggled at. If I knew the IC engine that well, I'd be pleased with myself as well. Medwed, you might stupid, ask your doctor--there might be a medicine for that)
