    As used, the term "protected persons" means everyone on the United States other than able-bodied white males between the ages of 18 and 40. All of these of these protected persons are treated like children who can't be held responsible for their own decisions. Is our capitalistic system just too difficult for them to cope with? If so, what should we do with them? Continue to pretend that it's always someone else's fault? Or provide them with a guaranteed income and forget about the concept of self-support? What do you think?

    Why do we still have a Bureau of Indian Affairs?

    The Rule of Law Is the Law of the Rulers

    Why do you say "we treat" instead of "they treat"? We don't have to identify with this oligarchic form of government. We might as well be occupied by a foreign power. We need a Populist Resistance, instead of Antifa's misleading media presentation, which is in reality unAmerican spoiled brats who hate everything majoritarian democracy stands for.

    It wasn't we who allowed them to vote.

    No, the able bodied white male who owns a local Hobby shop sued to protect himself from paying insurance for contraceptives under a religous minority flag.

    Eliminate those who are most different and the line will be redrawn between those who think they are similar now.

    The thread premise is factually wrong and doesn’t merit ‘debate.’

    The thread premise is also ridiculous, inane, and bigoted.

    There are no ‘protected persons,’ no one is being ‘treated like children’ – both notions are moronic rightwing lies.

    Women, persons of color, and religious and ethnic minorities are all equally subject to the same forces, rules, and consequences of a free market society.
