Skip to comments.A Return to Triangulation (libertarion vs social right)
Posted on 10/25/2006 11:10:46 AM PDT by Blackirish
As the Republican base fragments and Christian conservatives consider a fast from politics, the polling data point to a mid-term Republican thumping. Less than two weeks from now, Republicans will begin their post-mortem soul searching. And as the corpses of their House and Senate majorities grow cold, so should Karl Roves 2006 campaign strategy.

I dub thee..."Captain Napalm" !
Evos have their own site they are constantly sending people to and it's Darwin Central. A very interesting place where all the foibles of FR don't exist or are not tolerated. They can go there if they don't like the way FR is run, then they'd havbe no complaints.
I have not heard of social conservatives abandoning Bush, and being a social conservative, I should have gotten the memo.
That's rather laughable. I don't recall you ever calling "a spade a spade." When have you ever told any of these nutjobs that they are not only damaging conservatism, but also Christianity by their lunatic ramblings, Moonie affiliations, or anything else for that matter?
Don't label the whole group based on the actions of a few who are either not really part of the group...
Hold that thought. The person who deploys the "creation ping list" is the biggest recent distributor of Moonie propaganda on FR. And you have said - nothing. Ok, back to our regularly scheduled paragraph...
...or could just plain be trolls coming in from DU on "suicide runs" just to stir things up and make real Christians and creationists look bad.
Stand up to them. Once. Tell them what you think of their actions. Once. Tell them that they are wrong. Once. But you wont, because you agree with them on the subject of evolution, so you are willing to let them do or say anything, as long as they say that one thing that you agree with. That speaks of hypocricy.
Just clicked on your name, can't believe I didn't get the baby blue page of death!
As I posted before, the problem is not the "geo"-centrists, it's all the "ego"-centrists.
That, and the problem orbiting not Saturn, but Uranus ;-)
I've heard of it. I wonder if creationists are as welcome there as they are here...mmm.
...don't actually know any science.
Thanks for providing the impromptu emphasis for my point about posters who "cannot simply, politely, answer a point or observation, but simply MUST insert their snide little goads..."
Would you be open to considering the notion that your tone was unduly imperious and snotty and that such a tone just MIGHT be tributary to the overall problem being so lamented in this thread?
I'm not a psychiatrist trained in Freudian methods, but I think you seem to have an anal fixation.
Now why should I, as a reasonable person, be concerned about what I look like to someone who believes himself to be a "great ape". sheesh. ; D
I have seen this request on your part before (it must be you)...but I confess I do not remember. Just let me know the reference and I will try to humor you at some point by the end of the week.
That is the closest thing to a perfect post on the Crevo topics as I've ever seen!
...and your tagline echoes something I've always said to myself but never put in writing.
Just because some of use believe intelligent design or GASP creation to be a more logical interpretation of the world around us does not mean we are at war with science or do not like its benefits.
I use science every day, and my patients benefit from my knowledge of biology, physiology, pharmacology and a lot of other ologies. I also read enough papers and studied statistics enough to know that one can make research and statistics say pretty much what they want.
I am a scientist and a creationist, and there are growing numbers of us. WE do not discredit the Republican party - most of us are pretty intelligent and thoughful. I don't accuse your group of being knuckle dragging neanderthals for swallowing evolution hook, line and sinker, and would appreciate similar toning of the rhetoric on your side.
I think the internecine warfare discredits the conservatives far more than the creation/evolution debate. I don't know why the conservative movement tends to eat its own, while the dems are very good at keeping their attacks focused on the conservatives.

And by the way, I have not been anything less than civil on these threads, but have been called some pretty awful things for the gentleman that was decrying the "uneven" moderation on the threads.
