Tell me, if someone were to say to you that abortion is not a huge and controversial issue, would you waste time trying to convince the guy that he was wrong?

Ok, I am going to re-word this to make crystal clear what I meant here.

Tell me, if someone were to say to you that 1 + 1 does not equal 2, would you waste time trying to convince the guy that he was wrong?

I don’t even know how to respond to this. 1+1=2 is an empirical fact. “Immigration is a problem” and “abortion is a problem” are not empirical facts, they’re opinions.

Aaaactually, you cannot orove prove that 1+1=2. It is an axiom. And 1+1 isn’t always 2, in binary it’s 10.

I don’t know how to respond to this either, or what an axiom is.

If I have one of a thing, and I take another one of that thing and put them together, I now have two of that thing. 1+1=2.

I think I’m starting to understand how Warbler feels sometimes because I don’t understand what the fuck binary has to do with anything either.

How Many Versions are there of the AOTC
Time

Was just thinking, and I may have asked this before but never got an answer - don’t we have the theatrical DTS for AOTC? Is it for the 35mm version or the digital version? If it’s for the latter, that would tell us beyond a shadow of a doubt if the “to be angry is to be human” bit is from the theatrical cut or a DVD addition.

I’m not saying it isn’t a controversial issue. It clearly is. I’m saying that I’d like to hear some of the reasons people think having much fewer restrictions on it is a bad thing, because I’ve yet to hear an argument that convinces me we need to be cracking down the way so many seem to think we do.

Note that everything I just said applies equally to my views on abortion, since you brought that up.

Basically, it’s a controversial issue because people think it’s a problem. I’m not convinced it’s a problem at all, and anytime someone here has been asked why they think it is, the answer seems to be “it just is” with no reasoning given.
