equality of what?

Some want equal rewards for unequal actions...

Some are not equal because they made choices....

Some are not equal because they got a head start...

If life was Equal I suspect your quality of life would plummet.

Equality... true equality would mean equal misery...

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

God created all of us equality.

But He also gave all of us Free Will.

It's how we choose to use that Free Will that separates us, and defines us.

There are two kinds of people in the world.

The first group, which sadly is the larger of the two groups, looks at something and immediately says, "This is why it can't be done".

The second group, which is much smaller but is made up of life's winners, looks and something and says, "Here's what we need to do to make this a reality".

The great thing is that you decide which group you want to be in. Why anyone would choose the first group is beyond me. Maybe you can tell us why you always choose the first group.

I described your group 1 in the pejorative and you accuse me of that?

you are 100% wrong... I do no such thing. I will analyze situations and bring up issues and possible roadblocks but I also almost always come up with potential solutions.


I look at issues and say "A, B, and C are issues... here are ways we can try to fix them... "

Once again you smug hatefulness you make up totally false things... oh you are also guilty (as you are often are) of the fallacy of false dichotomy.

The best part about your reply is group one is the "I want equal reward for unequal actions."
