Just a quick hello. My bedtime now. Seems some smart folk are here.
I attempt to remain open minded while clutching firmly to my beliefs.
I'm here to learn and disagree. Not necessarily in that order.
Respect!

Things to help you understand TOL:

- TOL is biased
- TOL isn't fair
- TOL is not evenhanded

Think of TOL like a block party. And the block party is at Knight's house. Everyone on the block is invited. The host of the party has certain rules that he expects his guests to follow. During the party not all the rules are being followed, yet some people are getting a "pass" while others are asked to leave, why?

Because the host likes certain people more than others.

It's human nature really, the host is more lenient towards his friends and people he respects. The host is less lenient towards people he dislikes and doesn't respect.

The beautiful part of this is.... there is no law against block parties. Anyone who doesn't like this block party can have their own at their house.

IN SUMMARY:
When Sozo gets wild and spills beer on my carpet, I might pull him aside into the kitchen and ask him to be more careful in my house. Yet when some moron wearing a Hillary Clinton t-shirt spills beer on my carpet I might just throw them out of my house with little or no warning. Some people at the party have donated a few bucks to help pay for beer and snacks, so the host takes that into consideration when dealing with their trespasses. It's not a fail-safe, but it certainly plays into the hosts decisions.
