I just think it's an amazing irony -- the people that scream the loudest about tolerance and diversity have absolutely no tolerance for diversity in itheir own ranks. Orwell would be proud: conformity is diversity.

There's something to think about. I can hear John Lennon now:

Imagine no free thinking
It's easy if you try
Just say what we say
And don't you question why
Imagine all the people
Thinking all the same...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I know some day you'll join us
Or you'll be vilified by everyone.

What a crock, I'm not about silencing anyone, I just call BS when I see BS.

Yet again you prove what a drama queen you are.

Now wait just a minute here. I come on this forum and express progressive views which, by the way, are in line with President Obama's positions. My policy is to teach, rather than irritate and enrage. Along the way, I've got several of the conservative posters to either agree with the position or at least get them to admit that the position was well thought out.

Meanwhile, pangolin in particular is spending his efforts irritating, enraging, and playing childish antics on a par with "La-la-la-la-la I'M NOT HEARING YOU".

And yet you accuse ME of presenting easy targets for the right wingers?

So let's compare methods. Focusing on intellect and teaching, or focusing on emotion and arguing. Who's having greater success pulling conservatives closer to understanding the progressive view?

Dude, just be honest. I know you're a righwinger, but try and be honest and let go of this charade. Or not if that's how you get your jollies. I just happen to prefer dealing with honest people even if I disagree with them.

Take er easy fren.
