    I guess I should get out a little more but considering you're just a great North West Guy, I'll gladly take the news about this book from you

    Ordering right now
    Thanks, my friend. I've recommended it for my "book club" (which I just started). Heh.

    He's into drawing nudes for fun? The sheer fun of it?
    WOW!! My kind of guy! I guess that means he has plenty of models to choose from, or just a really great imagination, drawing at least partly on some personal experience.

    WOW!!! It's like we're brothers, except I can't say I'm good at DRAWING them.

    And what's wrong with questioning the values of one's society? God tells us to always question ALL earthly things of mankind.
    And as far as living a charmed life both here and abroad, aren't you also describing President Donald Trump's lifestyle too?

    Oh my, I think you're just scared of the man and his book, the mere existence of the book, in fact.
    Marke, you SHOULD BE. You SHOULD be scared of this book.
    Someone you know just might read it someday.

    Re: A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventure of Liberalism

    What I found amusing about the complaint is that the reviewer he quoted spent most of the review complaining about the author and precious little about the actual content of the book. What can you expect, though, from "National Review". (BTW, I am finding the book a little sketchy on detail, but reminding me so much of why I loved Philosophy in college! Hume! Mill! Adam Smith! Rousseau!)

    From the endorsements I get the impression he is not a strong Christian patriotic American capitalist.

    Another way of saying that you are unable to tolerate anyone who doesn't see things 100 percent YOUR WAY.
    What else is new? Nothing...this is basically your one note song, which you have parked on an endless loop, inflicting it on everyone who scrolls past your little temple of hate and intolerance.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with strength, Christianity, patriotism or capitalism, it's just your narrow minded dogma and your continual complaint about other people failing to understand that they must bow and get YOUR approval to even be worthy of existing.
