    It's pretty silly how everyone likes to jump to conclusions attempting to identify a crazy individual as a member of the opposite political ideology as if they are representative of a homogeneous whole.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Could somebody please provide me a link to the entire video? The one I clicked on in the OP showed next to nothing. Nothing of any kind was revealed at all.

    I think the great Shakespeare wrote a play about it --- MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.

    Hey, Libbos! You own this guy. Maybe you'all need to resend the memo about civility.

    Wow you've never actually come out and said liberals as a whole are responsible for individual actions. How does your notion of individual responsibility play into this statement? Is the person individually responsible or does a man hundreds of miles away who's never met, seen, talk to, or knows anything about this person including their existence hold responsibility. Does simply calling for civility made one personally responsible for all incivility demonstrated by all persons? Could be perhaps getting too emotional and perhaps overly macho due to perceived political alignment of individuals involved in this incident? Could this topic be any more ridiculous?

    Could an example maybe help Adpst? As a Soldier I'm sure he's heard the weekend safety briefs about how people shouldn't drink and drive, and he may have seen a video of a high ranking individual like the post commander or other commander. Well I'm sure in his time in the service he's seen or knows of Soldiers who have drunk and drive, been caught, or did something stupid like kill themselves or others. Would that general, having called for no drinking and driving, be held directly accountable for what PFC Doughnut did over the weekend?

    I hope not otherwise we'd be changing senior leaders every few hours since they'll either refuse to not call for no drinking and driving, or they'd be removed as a Soldier somewhere does it.

    From the way you write Id assuming everything a liberal does is wrong, and certainly thinking like a liberal would be. I mean how can you call liberals ignorant, stupid, misinformed, commies, or whatever else you may consider them and then say "I'm thinking like a liberal" makes you look kinda silly...

    Could you be more specific? You appear to be making a non sequitur connection but I am interested in how I can improve my communication.

    I suggested that your virulent language, e.g., your use of phrases like “pussy ass piece-a-****” and “cowardly, low-life, four-flushing, snake-in-the-grass, rat-turd, ass-hole, ass-licking, piece-of-monkey-**** mother ****er”, not to mention your dismissive reference to the President as “The Messiah” and the rhetorical question about the composition the pro-union crowd as being made up of “worthless cocksuckers,” that language when addressing the repulsive acts in the video, suggests that you are in fact more interested in taking advantage of the incident to promote and justify violent retaliation than in seeking calmness and respect for each side.

    Put simply, I accuse you of being an instigator seeking to assure that this crisis doesn't go to waste.

    Denial. It ain't just a river in Egypt... it's alive and well in the 'mind' of Haymarket.

    Now all the people bashing the crazy violent Tea Party are going to feel pretty stupid.
