    You don't have a case. You were clearly behaved dishonestly and there is absolutely no doubt about it.

    Why would you say that? Shouldn't any group be criticized and judged for its behavior rather than its numbers?

    Deliberately divisive persuasive messaging is coming from the CONSERVATIVE mediasphere.

    This is done to prevent actual dialogue between actual Americans.

    Because if we talk we might figure out we're being consciously deliberately manipulated.

    By people who know more about how our brains work, how we take in and process new information, than we do.

    Like the crooked mechanic who replaces your "muffler bearings" because you don't know there's no such thing.

    But the divisive thing is definitely coming out of the monolithic conservative media stream. "If you oppose the war, you're hurting the troops" for example.

    If you don't know what I am talking about, take note of how quickly new "talking points"/terms permeate Fox News, talk radio and the conservative blogosphere. Its pretty apparent they get daily updates. Theres no way it spreads that fast "naturally". They're mostly owned by the same group of people.

    The left does this as well, don't get me wrong, its just not as organized and effective as the conservative flavor.

    Right! That's why we are always hearing the Conservatives harp on about how everyone that disagrees with them is a racist/homophobe/sexist/bigot/stupid/ignorant/uneducated/war-monger.

    Oh, wait, that's not the Conservatives that are always doing that. Is it?

    Are you denying that such descriptors are not applicable to many conservatives?

    And a lovely place! Look - I'm sorry if I have offended you, but your comments are beyond the limit of civil discourse. That's all.

    Sure. I am just saying context matters.
