Synergy already responded more than adequately, but you are being a complete hypocrite here. Please define compassion - is it donating to charities that help the needy? Is it volunteering? You have NO CLUE about what Syn or I may or may not do and yet you feel you have the knowledge to judge us as having no compassion because we think it is wrong for the govt to keep taking more and more from the people who make this country work and who already pay over 70% of the taxes in this country in order to fund programs that do not help people better their lives. Instead these programs give just enough to get by (while discouraging marriage) and keep people enslaved to the govt. That isn't compassion - it is control. Study after study shows that Repubs donate far more than Dems to charity. Dems idea of charity is raising taxes on other people, and they speak so condescendingly about how they themselves "SHOULD pay more taxes". And yet these are the same people who take every deduction they can in order to NOT pay more in taxes. No one is forcing them to take those deductions.<quoted text>I try not to pick on people weaker than me and you shouldn't neither. That is what you and Aggie lack is human compassion for people beneath you. I hate the word stupid and I hate to embarass someone for their stupidity. To poke fun is one thing, but to only insult is wrong.
And if you want a lesson in insults, just read virtually any post from IO or CN, they have one message that they repeat ad nauseum. Repubs are stupid. Repubs are greedy, Repubs don't care about starving children, Repubs don't care about soldiers dying, every decision Bush made was to get oil. And on and on. And they ignore every fact they are presented with that illustrates the weakness of their position. So before you go talking about the splinter in the eye of the Right, how about doing something about the plank in the eye of the Left.
