That you tend to believe that your typed words on an anonymous message board, or that you can insult your way to some sort of respect is a fools errand, and demonstrates a serious flaw in logic.

    You are a smart guy bubba, I just wish you'd apply that aspiration toward rational discussion rather than bomb throwing, Alinsky type denigration....It just makes you look small.

    But personal ad hom attacks is what they do. I sincerely believe they can't help themselves, that anyone who disagrees with them is either unaware or evil and insults are their last (and often first) form of defense. Many times I now use the same tactics, after being ineffectually polite for too long.

    And yes, much of the means of propaganda was refined by Saul Alinsky and trickled down through the culture and media until we see the consequences now and the direction they are taking.. Few leftists may realize the source of their anger, only that there are injustices that must be mended, not understanding that what will eventually happen will be much worse than whatever problems they hope to eradicate.

    BTW, I know that the partisan progressives will instantly say that Bush isn't going either, being as that is the go to excuse for them, and personally I don't think that is right either...Bush should go.
    If he went you would be be saying he should be in Washington! I lieu of what has happened in Boston, he is where he should be and this thread is truly silly.

    I know that but it is still silly to make this out to be a big deal.. It just isn't.

    Perhaps because it is true?

    If a statement is true it shouldn't matter what the political persuasion is.

    Rhetorical questions have little to do with truth, and it was not seeking truth, it was an expression of political orientation.

    My point was more that a poster who claims the mantle of "libertarianism" continuously defends neocons with quotes from other neocons while making neocon argument.

    At least the VP, the Sec of State should have attended.

    Margaret Thatcher was one of the free world's greatest leaders, and she will be missed.
