    I think you were the first probably to state it out loud (or at least in text). I would have said that I myself was guilty of it except for the fact that I can honestly state that I generally key in on a person's point in the full rather than thrashing their post into short sentences of text and nitpicking little errors for the purpose of distracting from the overall context of the person's argument.

    Speaking of back and forth discussions, it would appear you came out on top for our first grand discussion about how DOMA would get repealed. I'll grant we both predicted the method accurately you did more so in also predicting which mechanism would win. That's what I get for debating a practicing lawyer when court stuff is involved. I'd hoped the legislature would get to it first, but it certainly lost that race!

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

    I disagree - in most cases it's a silly analogy, however, if the writer can make a strong case that there is a correlation between the topic and Nazism, what's wrong with saying it?

    You must have missed where they said that facts had to be used to support the argument...
