Wherein is your ultimate loyalty? To your party or to your country?

This from the party that sold its soul to keep Bill Clinton in the White House.

Indeed! The entire rant needs to be reversed and aimed at the democRATs. Their's is the party of corrupt socialists attempting to undermine the foundation of this country.

Oh, where to start? I don't suppose the Dean contingent are radical, are they?

Don't you just love the patronizing tone in this article. I just love it when liberals talk down to us.

Blech. Bring on the Viking Kitties!

I take it that since this letter isn't linked, you signed up specifically to provide it for us.

The usual liberal "parity."

Sorry, this is just totally out of touch with reality.

"However, because of the abuse of that word, I prefer to call myself a “progressive..."

LOL..

Guess what, you also wrote a nice letter stating your OPINION. Facts, dear, promote understanding and if you were a classical liberal you would know that.

As a "progressive" all you have is emotion, not logic. You have an appeal to some sort of moral highground that does not exist in your philosophy because you have no central belief other than some nebulous Rodney King mantra much like Al Gore and his, "No ruling authority."

As a philosopher, you also teach school in California.

Hmmmmmmm.......enough said..

It sounds reasonable. If every liberal talked liked this, they'd actually start making sense. But they won't, since that's the last thing they want.

What, no response yet? The best way to prove yourself worthy of honest debate is demonstrated willingness to "mix it up" with the locals. Otherwise, you'retreated as a "post and run" troll.

Wouldn't it be refreshing if one of these "progressives" would actually hang around and defend their positions/accusations/distortions?

Sadly though, despite their pretentions, the left doesn't seem to base their worldview on logical analysis, reasoned debate, or even historical reflection. They know best and we're damned fools for not recognizing it and capitulating.

God help us if they ever get into power again. Every time they do, it results in mass murder of incomprehensible numbers of citizens by their own state if they dare dissent. And all by those who claim to want "freedom of inquiry".

That's progressivism. Progressing towards the absolute domination of the many by the few at any cost. All for their own good, of course.

ask yourself from which direction is all the mean spiritedness coming from? Which party?

than ask yourself is that is your party, and if it is representing you. if it is, then you are part of the problem. if not, then you have nothing to be ashamed of.

we all know that the vast majority of mud is coming from the democrats. To cast the issue as one of equal culpability is disengenuous.

Had to stop reading when the writer waxed eloquent on
the"improvement of the human condition", by quoting Ted
the Swimmer, who let another human being drown to keep
his own sorry political career afloat.

Interesting, but completely off-base. The Republican Party has been hijacked by moderates, not conservatives.

The writer reminds me of my colleagues from the days when I was an academic. He never stops to think that I and my employees are fleeced by the state to pay for his life of perpetual navel contemplation.

For decades the rabid party has engaged in slander, treason, lies, distortions, communism and a full frontal attack to destroy both the Republican Party and the USofA from without and within. Whatsamatta? Things getting a little hot in the kitchen?

France is calling you. Go be a socialist over there, socialism is about to be kicked out of this country and the door barred behind it.

You Might be a Troll if ...

If that post is the best you can come up with ... you might be a troll.

If you like DU ... you might be a troll.

If you have had more than two screen names at Free Republic in one week ... you might be a troll.

If you can't remember the last time you bathed ... you might be a troll.

If you think that U.S. courts should consider the rulings and opinions of the courts of other countries rather than basing their rulings exclusively on the U.S. Constitution and the laws of the U.S. and of its several states ... you might be a troll.

If you think algore really won the Florida election, but the mean old US Supreme Court wouldn't allow the rules for counting ballots to be changed to your liking ... you must be a troll.

If you think the economy would be doing better if Congress hadn't passed those piddly little tax cuts ... you must be a troll.

If you think foreign policy under an algore administration or that of any of the current democrat wannabees would make us safer from attack from our enemies ... you must be a troll.

Hey troll, this viking kitty has a message for you:


Don't make me open this!

Let's see, what have the terms been, changing as each in turn became to be realized as meaning the same thing?

Communist, socialist, liberal, progressive. Any others I should add to that string?

Dear Ernie,

Your oppressed victimhood is showing.

Take Logic 101, or maybe Critical Thinking 101.

But please stay out of the Drama Dept.

God Bless America.

Or should I say, Allah or Mother Earth?

I love the carefully reasoned tones and thoughtful arguments that are meant to soften us up for the laundry list of the usual demo crap that follows.
Yep, the problem's all on the right, fer sure.

Up here, in the land of the ice and snow, this guy's argument passes for mainstream media reasoning. Guess it does there, too...

Hey, I've never participated in a zot thread before! This is kind of fun!

You said: "The writer reminds me of my colleagues from the days when I was an academic. He never stops to think that I and my employees are fleeced by the state to pay for his life of perpetual navel contemplation. ?

The text said: "I chose an academic career. You opted to join your father’s small manufacturing enterprise. So we encountered government differently. The taxpayers furnished my salary, while government imposed environmental and work safety regulations on your company."

Translation of the text: "You decided to produce capital, wealth, and JOBS without which our nation canot exist. I decided to not work for a living, produce nothing, and poison the minds of the next generation."

Don't you love the "government imposed these beneficial rules on you" rub by this ingrateful idiot?
