Hall of philosophy ? The libs dont even know what that is and its immense importance it had and has on life .Many posters here have dissed philosophy. They think they are smart in doing so but have made an enormous mistake. All guy philosophers . Cronig Where are you ?we are all the same ! property important , yep, thats why the libs want to ban fracking on your own land . But please pay the taxes. The constitution brilliant ? huh, america had slaves and invented slavery the liberals believe, original sin they say. The libs believe freedom is granted by the govt as the govt employee is indispensable,invented everything, gives us air to breath, etc. Tolerance ? disagree with the libs and wait for the venom to flow .
