“No -- because the baby cannot consent. "Rape" by definition is non-consensual on the side of the victim.”

“I think that it is an amazingly good thing that both conservatives and liberals are supporting the notion of ending indefinite detention. What could possibly be wrong with allowing our courts to determine guilt or innocence?”

“Fox canned her because she's too liberal.”

“Here's why Romney didn't mention Afghanistan -- because there's no politically acceptable stance for him. He cannot agree with Obama to get out by 2014. He can't say that we're not withdrawing (too unpopular). And he can't say we'll get out earlier, because his base wouldn't like it.”

“I agree with all of those who argue that coming on against a harasser is risky, and that explains why some women don't. But, as has been pointed out many times, one of the women did file a complaint against Cain and got a settlement. Usually such settlements require confidentiality. We do know that one got a $45,000 settlement, which by itself establishes plenty of credibility. The National Restaurant Association would not cough up that kind of money for nothing! And that's just one of four women. Cain is toast -- look what happened to Gary Hart! And Bill Clinton managed to slide past similar issues, but his reputation has been rendered abysmal on account of it.”

“I should mention that I'm a US citizen who resides in Canada (BC). I fully support the notion that Canadian Supreme Court judges should be bilingual. Bilingualism is one of Canada's real strengths, and anyone who goes to law school in Canada and hopes someday to go on the bench should know both languages fluently. It's only fair to the litigants, after all. I truly doubt that a Quebecois candidate would be considered if he or she didn't speak both languages. Why should it be any different for candidates from other provinces?”

“I'm an American who lived in France and vacationed frequently in Quebec; and there's a very large difference between a sentence spoken in one language and repeated in another; nuance and connotation are critical to interpretation.  To place a non-bilingual judge on the court I would see as disrespectful to that bilingual tradition.  He should be fluent in both before he interprets the law; ruling on the basis of translations is not sufficient at this judicial level.  Faved, Mmmickey55.”
