Morgan has said that cats kill native birds.

On the evidence provided, this appears to a fact.

In response he wants cats controlled, or even better, eradicated.

1) Should a person with convictions for violence be allowed to purchase a gun?
2) If the convictions were over ten years old, would your view change?

I have noticed, over the decades, a tendency in the west. I do not have a word for it but it hit me one year in Sydney as I watched a Mardi Gras.

The last days of the republic?

There is a sense of doom about this forum. As if we are in the last days of the republic, the forces of oppression lie somewhere south of the Rubicon on their relentless march to the Forum.

There is a raging (and in my view pointless) debate on another thread, concerning the libertarian equivalent of how many angels can dance on the head of a pin; Is Obama a Marxist.

My issue that I would like to kick around is should the state intervene in a banking crisis?
