    I loved the article, I am disappointed that the Seattle Bush Hater was allowed to leave the dinner without an explanation of the percentage that the top 1% pays. He let her go right on believing that they contribute "virtually nothing".

    Sometimes it's just not worth arguing with them...especially the little old ladies...

    Liberals are too closed minded nowadays. Some people say they have arguements with libs and they bring up many good points laced with the typical crap. Wish I could say the same, I rarely ever hear a good point come from a lib this days. Its all the same regurgited crap over and over. :puke:

    Are any of you familiar with the strawman argument?

    Right...

    Now what's the point of writing an article about discussion with a bunch of unnamed Bush haters, parroting extremist talking points that are easily disputed?
