A Return to Triangulation (libertarion vs social right)
National Review Online ^ | 10/25/06 | David Boaz & David Kirby

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 Rove’s 2006 campaign strategy.

You can start a website to share ideas but to talk about another website?

It was the thread about cats that put us over the top, wasn't it? I told them people to leave it alone, already, but you know how folks can be sometimes...

"No doubt, but then again, I don't care what you think"

Gee. That's disconcerting. I do believe I'll shed a tear.

Then control if you are in charge if you expect respect.

When it comes to the complexities of nature is it unreasonable to look at it and ask how so much could have been accidentally brought into being? Is that not a worthy area of scientific inquiry? Why limit yourselves the mechanics?

Because if they didn't they just might end up concluding that there was some kind of Intelligence or design to the universe. They HAVE to stop at manmade things.

I have been fighting against the Marxist "everything is political" (art, science, cooking, etc.) for more than ten lustrums. It's sad (but not surprising) to see that such an idea has taken hold with Conservatives.

"Did I say surprised.I have nothing in this fight except what I read.You can start a website to share ideas but to talk about another website?"

The truth points to itself. I personally could care less about the crevo foodfights. What I can't abide is misrepresentation (okay, for some reading this, out and out lying--except for some, who appear to be legends in their own minds), which is what is what is occurring, and has occurred for some time.

My stomach dropped when I read that post.

It was science, skepticism, logic and reason that brought me to the right in the first place.

Now I'm being told that I made a mistake. :(

The people who run this site don't appear to have had much luck telling those folks what to say; what makes you think I'd do any better?

In any case, I answer to them, and no one else, and therefore someone else's respect just don't enter into the equation. Sorry.

You didn't change, they did. I blame the Nixon Southern Strategy.

Unlike some other instances in the past, I think its more like what would have happened if the passengers of the Achille Lauro deciding that they've had enough of the hijackers and their demands, and threw them over the side instead of being polite and watching Leon Klinghoffer getting thrown over.

Dissembling behavior is unbecoming, BTW.

No Dissembling for you. Let's look at what you just said. You just drew an equivalence between the terrorists on the Achille Lauro and some people who have been banned from FR, implying they would have engaged in murder if they hadn't been. BTW, many of these people that have been banned are hard working scientists... one of whom is currently engaged in research to thwart terrorists. Ironic, isn't it? Do you have any idea how what you wrote comes across? And do you even give a d*mn?

That's not an insult, it's a neutral descriptive term of those who adhere religiously to the TOE.

Oh the irony of writing "scientists are Marxists" on a modern computer and sending it into cyberspace.

fatima prays for my son, my nephew, and a close friends daughter over the airwaves, so as far as I'm concerned she is very important. Your opinion means little to me on this issue.

LOL. Are you seriously claiming the left does NOT use "science" as a political tool?

All one has to do is read the *Other Sites* forum at DC to come to the conclusion it's anti-FR. It should more appropriately be labeled *Other Site* - singular- as it appears that there is only one that is trashed discussed.

That's a load of crap.

So you don't mind being called a Bible-fundy?
