: Tenacious, : Define how it is that your choice of ice cream flavor in an ice cream shop can be anything other then Free-Will. I know, you want lime sherbert, but they only have orange and pineapple, so you "have" to choose from those. You can't walk down to the grocery and get some lime sherbert, and if you did, it would be because you were programmed to do so. Yea, Right! From your point of view, nobody is responsible for anything they do, so our entire court system is nothing but a farce. A man who rapes a women only does so because his dick got hard! Damn! How could anyone be expected to act otherwise!

***It is we who decide what is wrong or right, n god handed these things down to us, so it is wrong to rape a woman but right to kill unborn children? Is it wrong to kill someone but alright if the government says so? Moral standards have thier begining in instincts just as everything else within us does, but has been adapted by humans into (vastly difering around the world)the current social standards, customs, beliefs all of which are nothing more than diferent names for morals/ethics... Furthermore, these adaptations were and are guided by those who have the power and control to do so, although they never expect to fall under this authority themselves, ie. religions, governments, parents... teach by example is a very, very rare thing in the real world. Our court system does what it can, there is some of what we are lead to believe is justice, but in my opinion justice is not putting the one who raped and killed my mother (example) into a maximum security prison to be feed and protected from me, rather justice seems like it would be my capturing this person and torturing this person, eventually allowing them the privalige of dying. But this is labeled vengence and given a stigmatism of evil, why? Because if we did things this way, those who oppress us would end upthe same way, or would not attempt to repress us to begin with. This big system we have is for the elite, the customs are those they created for us, how else would clinton still be in office, much less have been elected? Believe me, their way of thinking is a little for you, alot for me, a little for you alot for me. Who designed money and put in god "we" trust on it? Was this designer "we"? All these polititians say god bless you or something in thier speaches, but they can afford it, and I did not know such godly people liked vaginal flavored cigars or custom designed stone washed dresses, or middle of the runway haircuts, or sex that was not really sex, or the taste of mary jane in their mouth but not thier lungs, or sending troops overseas when you had better things to do during the last war or require others to go to court but decide its just not for you cause you believe in personal freedom... Of course, we must let them do it, right?
