I've always believed we agree on more than we disagree on. The ethanol issue, for another. As you said, we both tend to blame the other side for the problem, while in reality, the entire Washington Political class caved in on a truly bad solution.<quoted text>
Ha. We might be surprised, Zonk, at where we agree.
For example, you think Republicans are required to walk in lockstep, while I think it's the Democrats who require unquestioning fealty...an agreement of sorts, yes?
But we're both pretty partisan, so we tend to play the partisan roles. I think the format is part of the problem. Topix makes it easier to take pot shots and swap insults.
I expect if we were in a room together, we'd be surprised at how similarly we see things. That was the point I attempted to make with Joe, but he took it as a threat.
BTW, while I disagreed with your attacks on your adversaries on the Boy Scout thread, I do admire your strong support and involvement in Scouting.
