Oh, come on: the Puffington Host has as much credibility as Bernie Madoff.Comment Posted By smitty On 3.02.2010 @ 14:40
I thoroughly agree with your point here.
If you haven't thrown all of your ideas down, and then carefully, deliberately, consistently picked up the one's you'll espouse based upon your own reasoning,
then you're really not much of a human being.
Seen from that vantage, one can respect the fact that a Barack Obama at least set out to do the things he felt that the majority of the country elected him to do, for all we may find them wrong-headed.Comment Posted By smitty On 20.01.2010 @ 11:42
By all means challenge ideas. A comparative religion course, for example, is a great way to ensure comprehension of one's own affirmations.
Your argument, in that context seems to be that real conservatives should spend a lot of time discussing Marxism for the sake of discussing Marxism.
We can to that dispassionately, but if Marxism is fundamentally flawed (as I would argue), then no amount of conservative analysis is going to improve the erroneous worldview contained in Marxism.
Are you saying my conservative bona fides are somehow diminished because I neither waste time on nor have success in breathing life into this dead Marxist horse?Comment Posted By smitty On 14.01.2010 @ 12:57

It would be a better world if more (for example, Smitty) would take your self-reflection to heart.
Impress me and write about the Constitution and Federalism, sir.
Heh - why in God's name would I want to impress you? Do I tell you what to write about?
Impress me and write about the Chicago Bears.

If your overstatement of the animus were any greater, you'd qualify for the global warming team, sir.Comment Posted By smitty On 23.11.2009 @ 06:19

Everyone agrees on the usual left/right categories of discussion in politics.Comment Posted By smitty On 3.11.2009 @ 17:08
But the Progressives, ~100 years ago, picked up the origin and shifted it significantly to the left. The States are diminished in political power in favor of the Imperial Fed.
The results (in the first three links at the top of the post) really stink.
Yet you seem to accept cheerfully the framing of the issue by the Progressives.
Just curious: how broke will you have to become before you realize you've been rooked, duped, and sold down the river, sir?
