This is actually an important and interesting question.

We don't invite him anymore. Being ok with Trump means that human life is not what matters above all for you. This is unacceptable. Plus what would happen if somebody that doesn't conform to what his ideaa

The first category is the fabled 1% of people I'm talking about. The second category is about 75% of people. The final category is 24% of people, but they account for the VAST majority of anything ever posted online. Listening to any of those idiots is a recipe for disaster. The least they could do is read a fucking book.

No, you're really not. The entire discourse about "job creation" is such an obvious lie that I don't see how anyone can unironically believe any of it.

The only thing I heard was some science-ish agency narrowing its public output to its dedicated relations department or something, I think followed by an immediate retraction and claim the memo was not authorized.

In general, everyone's entitled to their opinion. Some opinions are just stupider than others. Lately, the stupid opinions seem to be disproportionately popular on both sides.

Everybody is a retard in subjects he haven't studied. The difference for smart people is they know they don't know anything about stuff they didn't study.

Socrates is a dick. Understanding your lack of knowledge doesn't make you smart, it makes you humble. Researching something comprehensively on both sides of an argument to understand it before you decide on your opinion makes you smart.

In terms of politics, a stupid person and a smart person may have the same opinion, but it becomes very clear who's a charlatan and who isn't by the reasoning behind their position. For example, if you ask where the democrats and republicans fall on the global political spectrum the answer is right, and far right. Nothing in either party's platform is traditionally "left", but if you ask anyone in the united states, suddenly every democrat is a left wing communist because they aren't extremely far right, which shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the concept in general.

>I want to have a legitimate discussion over what should and should not be called a slippery slope by this point because I honestly don't know anymore
As with everything else, it's a matter of backing your shit up. Slippery Slope can be a legitimate argument or a logical fallacy depending on usage.

The basic idea of a slippery slope is that we shouldn't do something not on its own merits, but because it will result in other things being done, and we should not do those. It's often commandeered for the argument that we SHOULD do things we should not do because it'd be inconsistent/unfair/etc not to, which is a different argument in the same format.

An example of the proper form would be:
>Once we raise taxes to pay for our shit once, we'll do it next time we need the cash too, and won't stop until it's a crushing burden on every one and thing

An example of the hijacked, actually-saying-it's-bad-in-principle version would be:
>Once we outlaw reality TV for being trashy, what's next, outlawing dumb scifi flicks for being dumb?!

The fallacy version occurs when you fail to sufficiently explain WHY this is the case. Examples:
>Once we raise taxes once, we'll never stop!
>Once we outlaw reality TV, scifi is next!

Noone is ever forced to have an abortion. Abstinence is always an option. If you have sex, you have implicitly accepted the possibility of pregnancy. If you need to be certain, get your tubes tied.

Anyone using your reasoning as an excuse is only insulting themselves, since they're all but saying outright that they're too weak to make their own decisions without someone handing them an easy out, and demanding they not be shamed for taking the coward's route.

All that said, personally I don't think abortion should be illegal, because I don't think government has any place enforcing subjective morality. I find the practice detestable and the practitioners thereof to be disgusting, but my emotions aren't a basis for legislation. In my view it should be punished on the social level.

What the hell is so fucking special? I didn't ask to be born. Nobody gave me the gift receipt for my conception.

Of course it is acceptable to eliminate something that isn't a human being, compared to kill a human being.

It possess rudimentary capability for homeostasis, is it's own genetically unique entity that is undeniably a member of Homo sapiens, is capable of growth and development of the same level and kind as any other human being without cancerous mutation, and is produced as a unique organism by the procreation of humans that is also capable of displaying basic responses to stimuli as well as developing human level sapience through its own growth and development

That entity is a Human Being, even as much as a newly born human infant. It possess just about all the same natural sapient capabilities as you do, and I won't have you devaluing human life.

Nearly every human culture on this planet has understood the moral responsibility of caring for the unborn, I'm sorry that toy are too sociopathic to also realize the importance as well.

Now go back to murdering tribal groups you despise and alienating your fellow humans, since toy have clearly shown a lacking basic empathy for human life.

Yeah, civilians live in every warzone. We still bomb it. In fact its better to do so now with bombing becoming an exact science rather than a "blanket and pray" deal. Reduces soldier casualties and since you're hitting them at a specific time any 'civilians' who get in the way are acceptable casualties on the international scale as they could very well be terrorists themselves or supporters with any degree of investigation.
The crowd in this scene aren't civilians when gunshots start going off and they don't clear out or duck down.

This is essentially the first election that's got a serious hold on the internet. Some of the Obama elections got a little net coverage, but that was relatively small compared to Trump and Clinton. It was like they were using net things for swaying people in real life now and again, a few jokes or rants. But with Trump and Clinton, it spewed onto the net almost the moment people learned who was running. Memes for fucking everybody, people got up on internet soapboxes to fight for their favorite candidates.

Almost every single cell does. Every bacteria does. That has absolutely nothing to do with being a human being.

No, Homo sapiens is the whole animal, not a single cell.

No. If it's not in the womb, it dies.

Have you considered that your own experience and myopic mindset is not indicative of the whole, and considering humanity hated lasted thus far with nearly every single culture and religion to have ever existed to pit emphasis of the beauty of life and existence of the conscious self (except arguable Buddhism, but that is complicated and debatable), your mindset may intact be an irregularity and/or indicative to a cultivated ignorance and unwillingness to actively seek to answer the existential pursuits of understanding and purpose that define us, and have instead chosen to will own in your own misery and self pity, seeking some vestige of schadenfreude from projecting your own insecurities on humanity?

No, I'm merely pointing out that the "you're destroying future joy" argument cuts both ways, since you're also destroying future pain. While people in my situation are not the norm, the sort of people who seek abortions are not well aligned with the statistical average and are generally in circumstances that increase the probability of having unsuccessful kids, such as being poor, underage and unprepared, or lacking a stable family.

The rust belt is in debt because of the collapse of an economic paradigm, which is hardly their fault.

Remember that this was a system put in place when the largest cities in America were still nowhere near approaching the population centers of Europe at the time, and at first only white, educated men could vote (I think Andrew Jackson opened it up to all white men, and then most people know when suffrage and the civil rights movement happened).

Yet answer me how you can see an entity that fulfills all the requirements of being an genetically unique organism of the species homo sapiens having all the distinctions of being a unique organism in terms of both genetics and physicality, and thus not a mere offscouring of a concurrent entity, as not a human life.

In my field of Wildlife Biology (as in the guys actually trying to maintain the ability of our planet to acruarsupport multiple forms of life) one does not distinguish a fetal organism as being wholesale different from any other member of its species. Find a dead Pronghorn that was pregnant, cut it open, and look as the during embryo inside, and you would not consider it to not be a member of its species, nor do you discount it's death as being less impactful on the population growth and mortality of the local pronghorn population.

Humans are no different in this regard, and to attempt to split hairs in the same manner you do does nothing more than dehumanize and attempt to assign a philogenetically wrong label to what is beyond a doubt a human entity, no less than a ostrich egg still being for all intents and purposes an ostrich itself.
