Can't rebut diddly, can you?<quoted text>
As Ronnie Ramjet would say, "There you go again."
How can we have serious discussions in this nation when people insist on deliberate and willful misinformation? How can you trust anything they say in defense of any position? It just becomes a litany of escalating caterwauling. Tiresome and boring AND ensuring that real discussion can never ever take place. Retire to your corners and commence the food-fight. Politicians and industrialists, we'll blame each other with half-baked, even more poorly understood but oh-so-convenient, labels provided by our media overlords, you go ahead and carry on with your plans for pillaging the coffers.
....and now we are reminded why I dubbed thee: The Prince of Pork Barrel Filled Posts.
"Yeah, Lyndi. How can we have serious discussions when you keep throwing a wrench into the wheels of liberalism. Why do you keep popping my fantasy with FACTS? How can you say Obama lied when it's clear to ME that it was really just a false promise?"
Because to the delight of all my teachers and professors along my academic path, I am the feminine version of a Doubting Thomas. And I bitterly DOUBT liberalism as a solution to anything except where butter on lobster and baked potatoes is concerned. As a former student of the ancients, I believe that everything in moderation, nothing to excess is a wise philosophy and liberalism is excessive; thus unhealthy for an individual and unhealthy for a population of freedom loving people, so says Socrates. And waiting around while Nancy, Harry and Barry contort themselves and this nation into colossal knots trying to force liberalism to work is about as much fun and productive as waiting for Godot.
Let me tell you something, Hip. The >only< time you'll be satisfied with 'serious discussions' is when everyone else with an opposing position, shuts up and since I'm right on the edge of believing liberals have a mental disorder, the chances of me and others shutting up, are pretty slim.
