    Trump:

    His is the most honest president since Lincoln. Sure he lies, but he lies about stuff like how many people were at the inauguration. Who cares? If you care about people lying about that that says a lot about you.

    But when he says he's going to do something he does it. When he makes a promise he keeps it. He delivers the goods like no one else.

    Kavanaugh:

    How could you not like a guy who has been attacked like that, who fought back, for himself, for his family, for his beliefs, and for America. How can you attack him? Shame on you. You are puny compared to that giant.

    • I'd care if they lied under oath...kinda calls into question if they're lying about their support for Brown
      Would it change your perception of the charges if they were introduced by the most outspoken senator opposed to Brown?

      I think that the perception most would have is that they were politically motivated given the source and the timing.

        Your argument relies on two points. One, that I am arguing that there is no change in nature between an unborn child and a sperm cell, and that two, that having a heart rate is a requirement for personhood. It's a sufficient but not a necessary criterion.

        IE, if we can establish that a child has a heart rate (and different from their mother's), that would be sufficient to determine that the child is in fact alive beyond most people's reasonable doubt.

        Sperm cells have fundamental differences from the zygote. These differences can be represented by the significant genetic chances that occur after conception. Sperm is a haploid cell, while the zygote is diploid. These cellular differences is why a zygote will grow and develop into an embryo and an embryo into a fetus and so on and so forth. This is why we can treat sperm cells like a cell of the body, whereas the zygote is not 'of the same body' as all the other cells.

          trump is a big ****ing liar just like you.

          And what has he done? The tax cuts were passed by Congress. He doesn't do **** you ignoramus, except going to play golf every weekend on our dime.

          Honest my ass and where is the wall? Dumb****istan is what this country should be named.

          Kavanaugh is a rapist. End of story.

              • OK I found a website called 'The Washington Post' which claims is fair and balanced, and one called 'The Onion' which claims to be the most accurate news outlet in America.

                Get ready to be proven wrong, Berz.

                    I disagree.
                    It is the cognitive functions which define a personhood.
                    And, as the heart is capable to function independently of cognitive functions, the presence of a heart rate alone is insufficient of defining personhood.
                    Without a developed CNS, the body is just a hollow shell. Even one of the most rudimentary reflexes, the pain reflex, needs more than a month of further development (after the embryos heart has begun to beat) in order to show up.

                      TBH I don't even know whose side of the argument I am on, I just feel like posting stuff.

                      • I'm on the side of sanity and thinking.

                        Maybe that's why I'm so emo.

                          • It is the cognitive functions which define a personhood.
                            The presence of brain function is one indicator, but like a heart rate it is a sufficient but not necessary clause. It is possible to still be alive without detectible brain function.

                            Without a developed CNS, the body is just a hollow shell.
                            Not so. The brain does not form instantly. If the body without a brain were merely a hollow shell, then the brain could never form. As the brain does develop, the body must have the things that it needs in order for the brain to grow and develop. Those things are the genetic instructions that the zygote already has at conception
