36. Chomping at the bit wasn't enough, was it?

 


I can't have a discussion with someone whose motives are entirely emotional. I just doesn't work.

You missed the premise entirely, and are not qualified to comment on it as such. Two truths you wish you could argue with, but cannot do so rationally:

1) Banning abortions will not stop people from getting them.

2) Banning guns will not stop people from getting them.

The rest is also true: People seek both out of insecurity. You may not like that truth, but it is not difficult to establish.

I'll put a test to you that you will either avoid or fail: "Give me any reason you can think of that a person would have an abortion, and I will tell you the accompanying insecurity."

And 'none of your business' means, "I don't want you to know my insecurities".
