And still you won't answer. I guess we can assume that at least some of those items are what you believe.'Cause you sure don't express ANY progressive (with a small p; i.e., favoring or advocating progress, change, improvement, or reform, as opposed to wishing to maintain things as they are)ideas now do you?
If you want to assume that I "believe" some of that garbage because I have no interest in debating a list of idiotic nonsense... go right ahead.

Nobody's interested in debating. Just tell us which ones you agree with or don't. Easy.

Okay, azzhole, great. So you don't believe in any of these primary right-wing beliefs:

Man-made global warming is a hoax.

Corporations don't need to be regulated.

The economy is driven by investors not by demand.

God wrote the Bible.

The rich deserve lower tax rates than the non-rich.

Anyone who is poor is so because they're lazy.

President Obama is a: socialist, nazi, communist, Muslim, going to take your gun, wants to won your children, is satan, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam.

Voter fraud is rampant.

Sex education causes pregnancy.

Women SHOULD be paid 77% of men.

Women should not have rights over their bodies.

Money is more important than people.

The planet is 6,000 years old.

Right? So what do you beleive?

Ok fine, I'll address your childish nonsense.

I don't know if Man-made global warming is a hoax or not.

Corporations need to be regulated, the extent of regulation is what an adult would discuss about it.

The economy is more complex than you have described, and cannot be summarized in a useful way in one sentence.

I'm pretty sure that the bible is the work of man, but I don't have one handy - so I cant check for an author credit.

I do not believe that "The rich deserve lower tax rates than the non-rich."

I do not believe that "Anyone who is poor is so because they're lazy."

Your nonsense about the President is too idiotic to address.

I don't know if "Voter fraud is rampant" or not. I voted once, I don't know what anyone else did.

Sex causes pregnancy.

I do not believe that "Women SHOULD be paid 77% of men."

I do not believe that "Women should not have rights over their bodies."

Money more important than people? Depends on the person.

I don't know how old the earth is. It was here when I arrived, all I can definitively say is that its older than me.

Satisfied?

Another in the series "What's Wrong with Righty"

A strong belief in a hands off approach to economics (laissez-faire free markets) is tightly linked to the rejection of scientific facts such as climate change, according to research published in Psychological Science in late March.

Those who rejected climate change appeared to be more accepting of conspiracy theories in general. Belief that the moon landing was actually staged on Earth, that the government allowed the 9/11 terrorist attacks occur so they could invade the Middle East, and other conspiracy theories predicted rejection of climate change.

“This finding suggests that a general propensity to endorse any of a number of conspiracy theories predisposes people to reject entirely unrelated scientific facts,” Lewandowsky and his colleagues said.

Another in the series "What's Wrong with Righty"

New Hampshire state Rep. Stella Tremblay (R-Auburn) believes that Alex Jones’ website Infowars has revealed the truth behind the Boston Marathon bombings.

The New Hampshire Democratic Party on Tuesday highlighted a Facebook message Tremblay left on Glenn Beck’s fan page last Friday.

The message claimed the U.S. government secretly carried out the Boston attack and that the suspect who was arrested was merely a patsy. The post linked to an Alex Jones video.

Does it surprise you that the U.S. is both the third least taxed developed country and the fourth highest in wealth inequality among all nations? With so little revenue going to the general public, it's not surprising either that our country is the fourth worst in the overall well-being of its children.

Recipients of 'entitlements' are accused by the uninformed of getting something for nothing. The opposite is true. According to the Urban Institute, the typical two-earner couple making average wages throughout their lifetimes will receive LESS in Social Security benefits than they paid in. Same for single males. Almost the same for single females.

Getting something for nothing? Yes, the rich are. Tax expenditures, which are deductions and exemptions that primarily benefit the highest-earning individuals, cost about 8 percent of the GDP, the same percentage that goes to Social Security and Medicare.

If just one of the tax breaks for the rich, the $113,700 cap on Payroll Tax, were eliminated, Social Security would be almost entirely funded for the next 75 years.

Another conservative shibboleth debunked:

It's been a very bad week for the austerity movement.

Austerity has been discredited as a path to economic prosperity for awhile. But a real breakthrough came last week, when a paper written by a graduate student (UMass Amherst's Thomas Herndon) debunked the famous Reinhart & Rogoff study, which had claimed that growth slows precipitously when a country's debt rises above 90% of GDP.

Since then, more dominos have tumbled...
