    I find it odd that most of the times you only post when it suits your political agenda and who you want to hit at a specific time...

    Specifically because you target conservatives when frankly BOTH sides have routinely attacked the other for doing something miniscule but will say next to nothing, or immedietely excuse, the actions of their owns.

    This is not a right or left issue, its just a people issue. People typically when segregated into "teams", "groups", or any sort of collection will have a number who fall into group think and will seek to defend "Theirs" and attack "others".

    2) A very successful campaign by certain portions of our country against private sector entities that exploits the first point, since many people don't realize every time they "stick it to the man" they are actually sticking it to themselves.

    I'm not that impressed with a Harvard resume to be honest, what was once a very respectable school has become nothing more than a grandiose groupthink session.

    I really have no political agenda. I call it as I see it and I happen to know that Alito has long been a Bush flunky who is, like his appointer, owned by big business special interest groups.

    Granted you make a fair point about the partisan bickering of the government. This is true. Both sides tend to attack eachother without regard to taste, tact, or good manners.

    I am and will always be a liberatarian. I dislike both sides equally. I want business seperated from politics by whatever means necessary; including putting politicans and those who give them so much as one signe penny in cell for 15-25 years without parole. I also think those crimes need to unpardonable. This step will keep partisan pardoning of political allies in check.

    People often ask me why I attack the right as often as I do. I am a disability sufferer. I have been victimized by a number of corporate employers. When I tried to get justice, I was denied. The corporations (right wingers) bought of politicans to make sure they are allowed to do whatever they want to whomever they please without consequences.
    As such, I see the right as the enemy of the middle class and the poor.

    As to the left, my issue with the left has always been that while they allow for welfare (which the right would strip away if it could) they do not have a clue how to defend the country.

    They cannot see a threat where it exists. They would rather wait for some Al Qaida ****tard to set off a nuke on US soil before they move against those who arm the terrorists.

    Liberals cannot see Iran as a threat. Well ... Iran is a threat; hopefully the current government will fall and that situation will eliminate itself. If it does not, we need to act BEFORE Iran gets nuclear weapons.

    Depends on the school, I don't mind a political lean to a school as long as critical thinking and actual intellectual persuits are engaged. What I find with some schools is that you get a padded resume based on the prettiest recitation of the prevailing theory, that isn't a sign of intelligence, I can train a parrot to do that. This being said, some ivy league schools are still credible, like Cornell, Columbia, Tulane, etc. But Yale and Harvard? Yeah right.

    Good point. Cornell and Colombia are still good schools. I suppose there are still a few schools that deserve some credit.

    Absolutely, the problem with some academics is they forget the essence of learning, and that is to do, not to hear and regurgitate.

    What isn't usual, or common, or even precedented in over 30 years, is using the State of the Union to speak negatively about a Supreme Court decision, while they're sitting there, when the court is meant to be roughly apolitical would be inappropriate for them to actively publicly defend themselves against a flat out lie by the President.

    I don't know why you're so up in arms about a man who just got unprecedentatly attacked on a national stage privately whispering his disagreement to someone.
    I am merely disgusted. He has to defend himself? Did Obama call him a name? Justice Roberts remained stonefaced, which is what someone with class does.
