    you may say that the founding fathers values were "liberal", but you actually describe them as being "liberating"..theres a difference....and there values do not even closley resemble what is promoted by modern liberalism...for one you cant take religion "out of it", liberalism is all about big government and "taking care of the people" by welfare or healthcare or any other tax driven program or government regulation, liberals want to take away gun rights, even to the point of banning them out right, and they are anti-capitalists

    I particularly like the confused look on the face of the girl in pink at hte bottom right along with the look of utter disinterest by the blonde with the "forward" sign in the bottom middle.

    You don't even know what 'liberal' means. Too many conservatives just make a pile out of things they don't like and call the pile 'liberalism' without knowing what the hell they're talking about.
    You don't get to change the definitions of words to suit yourself.

    Interestingly enough, Limbaugh's book has many parrallels to Nathaniel Philbrick's Mayflower which was a 2007 finalist for the Pullitzer Prize in history.

    Think the idea behind the book has merit. You throw in a silly main character, a talking horse and a bunch of history. Probably a good way to get kids into this information.

    Psst, its not a real law. Perhaps it's time to repeal Godwin's Law since its seems to get invoked regardless if the correlation is an accurate and appropiate one to the discussion...in this case, childrens books aka brainwashing children. I notice that none of you read the thread before invoking Godwin's law..which makes all you guilty of hijacking the thread to discuss Godwin's law.


    If Charles Manson wrote a childrens book, called "The Trials of Timmy Travis" would you recommend it based on the merit and content of the book and not the author?

    What if someone compared the author of "The Trials of Timmy Travis" to Nazis....would you scream Godwin's Law so no one can discuss that swastika emblazened on the authors forehead?

    That you don't understand the fallacy in comparing Rush Limbaugh to Charles Manson, Hitler, or a key figure within the Nazi regmine then I don't quite know what else to say.

    If your point was that Limbaugh is a propogandist, one could easily have said that. There's little reason to go to the nazi comparison OTHER than to invoke the natural and common emotional response associated with nazism and tie that to the target.

    You breath air. OMG! Hitler breathed air. You're just like Hitler! It's okay, beucase the correlation is accurate and I dislike what you're saying so apparently it's appropriate by your logic!

    [moot]Dr. Seuss was clearly just like Geobbels, because they wrote books for kids with messages in them...AKA "Brainwashing kids" [/moot]

    What modern “liberals” hold as principles are, for the most part, diametrically-opposed to the values on which this nation was founded.
