    Not necessarily your cattle per se, but it isn't the Clivus Multrum Bundys of the world who can decide that.

    I again refer you to the Chomsky quote. This time try reading it.
    Did read it.. it has no relevance to this discussion.

    Hmm "stultifying American Brainwashing"..interesting.

    Tell me.. have you lived and spent time in North Korea, or the former soviet union.. or China?

    I have a bit. But please.. explain to us all how the poor and middle class in those countries have more say in government than in the US.

    Living the cloistered life of a conservative, free from science, critical thinking and the world around you, I understand why you don't understand.

    That post makes no sense either.

    That's funny. Doesn't make any sense either (especially when you consider who you are posting to) .. but its amusing.

    Offer still stands though...


    Make the case the China, the former soviet union and north Korea, offer (offered) more freedoms to the poor and middle class than countries like the US that indulge in the fantasy of western democracy.

Conversely the few conservative professors I had seemed to feel like it was their duty to try and undocternate kids they assumed were getting endocternated in other classes.

    Conservatives frequently like to justify their horrible behavior by convincing themselves liberals are doing it so they have to as well. Fox News justifies it's ridiculous right wing bias, by asserting all the other news outlets are out to get them. Conservatives justify voter fraud and election rigging on the false belief that voter fraud is the only reason liberals win. Conservative professors don't seem to have any issue with preaching right wing garbage on the delusional belief that they are out numbered by liberal professors who are doing the same thing. Conservatives like Trump constantly lie and justify it because they think they have to lie in order to counter liberal lies that aren't actually being told.

    In psychology it's called projection. Conservatives assume that liberals just think and act like they do, then use that to justify their own terrible behavior. One of the weaknesses liberals have is the reverse. They assume conservatives think rationally because liberals think rationally so they try to make rational arguments that get ignored by rabbit hate mongers who value confidence over truth.
    Oh please.
