    just how often the 'right' gives up fighting with the left, when it become redundant, yet never in reverse?

    Guess that is what by 'never give up.' Alinsky for sure, comes naturally I guess.

    Indeed.

    There have been many times when I just gave up because the person on the left would just refuse to acknowledge the facts presented. You can't debate somebody that either doesn't understand facts or willfully chooses to ignore them.

    Playing ring around the rosie is not my idea of progress

    In other words, it becomes pointless to fight just for the sake of fighting. When there is action outside the rosie that needs taken care of. Taking our eye off the ball is not going to be that easy

    Way to be biased and generalize at the same time. Could you paint any wider with that brush of yours? :eusa_eh:

    When one realizes that one is talking to the equivalent of a box of moon rocks, one should seek other conversation. For this reason, this one talks to lots of others. Circular arguments waste everybody's time.
