We let the GOP moderates & liberals run their Presidential candidate last year. How did that work out again?
Wouldn't it be simpler if you just folowed Spectre's lead and bring a smile to Meghan "MSM-Celeb" McCain's chubby face?Comment Posted By Karen Schell On 4.05.2009 @ 19:41
"Roy Mustang Said:
True cowardice is taking away comments from your blog."
Indeed, Roy. In a previous comment, I pointed out the fact that this blogpost was entirely emotional-based, there's just no there there. The blogger was easily spun by a PDS-driven media. No naughty words at all. But it was "disappeared". I expect the same fear of critique will necessitate this comment be immediately deep-sixed as well, which should say something just as loudly about actual (not a perceived) "moral cowardice" in action.
Why is it that only people who would stifle other viewpoints themselves accuse others of doing it?

The blogger is obviously quite easily pulled around by the nose by the crazed "Burn the Christian!" media lynch gang. If I were a Fuller brushseller, vacuum claener salesperson or just an "Avon lady", I'd head for this blogger's door right out of the gate. Such purely emotionally fed and driven political "reasoning" as offered up by the blogger here will always lead to feverished, unbalanced conclusions. Move over "Excitable Andy", you've got competition!
I'm sorry but there is no way you could qualify for one of those jobs.
I hear they have an opening for Crash Dummy over at the DOT.

"there are plenty of places on this planet where people are free to worship but where political freedoms are stymied"
In reading Krauthammer, the only mention he makes that could be associated with "plenty of places" is "huge swaths of the Muslim world". That's a disingenuous attempr to blow in a foer-foggy haze of moral relativism. Islam has always been a political-power movement with a veneer of "religion", it's very design and intent has always been to make people literally "submit", not to free them.
On the flip side he did try to present the EU as the Brave New World's Great Emerald City of "tolerance". (that term alone should make anyone's eye's spin faster than a spinach-eating dradle.)
If a person is enamored of total micro-management of and massive intrusion in citizen's lives and thus chooses to label such things as "being set free", Krauthammer's argumnent indeed does work. Otherwise the EU is in fact a dying civilization and not something I would offer as an example of much as anything. (other than as a dying civilization)
I do think way too much has been made of religion in this campaign. Especially about things of no or little import and about candidates like Huckabee who makes it his big selling point. Romney's not bad in that respect since he's responding to attacks and really not wearing his religion on his sleeve.Comment Posted By karen schell On 14.12.2007 @ 11:09
"he was dead wrong in positing the notion that faith promotes freedom"
You'll have to pick that same bone with America's founders since it seemed manifestly evident to them:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"
Of course, I suppose they could have be dead wrong. But I wouldn't bet on it.Comment Posted By karen schell On 14.12.2007 @ 10:00
