I have never heard of a pro-choicer supporting forcing women to have abortions. I have, however, heard of pro-lifers forcing women to not have them.

California banning new car diesel sales for 4 yrs. Real smart...How about their pointless attempts to ban guns, spanking children (yup need the government telling me how to discipline kids), pointless proposed bans on certain breeds of dog ownership, and even Huck Finn at Liberal Concord, MA libraries
Interesting list. I vaguely remember the Huck Finn issue, but am I missing something -- wasn't that 100 years ago? And isn't it more likely that the ban came out of conservative thought, not liberal. Either way, it's not terribly relevant today. The Nazis banned books, too, and I haven't heard anyone call them liberal lately.
Diesel cars? I thought that was all about fleet vehicles, not individual sales. Was that a concern about increased particulate pollution in smog-soaked LA
? I guess from your point of view, it's OK
for someone to force dirty air down my lungs so they can continue to drive a car or truck that pollutes too much. I know, if I would just stop breathing, there'd be no problem ...
No spanking? Interesting that the neocons think it's not OK
to kill a fetus, but beating a live kid senseless is OK
. The dog breeds? I've seen what happens when a pit bull goes after a kid, but I agree that banning them isn't an answer. Ban the owners.
Guns? What can I say? That's mostly an American obsession, except that most of our illegal guns come from the US. In return, you get our illegal drugs, Fair trade?
I'm not going to quarrel too much with the list because I don't know enough about it, other than to say that your argument here seems to be that since liberals are guilty of forcing their views down people's throats, it's OK
for neocons to do the same. Whatever happened to two wrongs don't make a right?
Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
