    how about you?

    and I am not talking about debate in the manner of, " you are an idiot who lives in your mama's basement" kind of debate...but real debating the issues with civil discourse, and in the end, agreeing to respectfully disagree....

    You get squeamish when people baldly state facts, Care.

    I love to debate with people who love to debate.

    I'll admit I do weary of the schoolyard taunts, sound bites of the the day, the 'your mom wears army boots' or 'my dad can beat up your dad' mentality, the contests to see who can use the most vulgarities in a single post, the straw men, non sequiturs, ad hominem characterizations, and other stupidities.

    Some would say I'm too critical. :)

    I love to debate with people who use facts.

    So many on the right use nothing but lies and deversion.

    But those on the left use only verifiable facts and evidence?

    Shall we debate that?

    And I'll tell you the same thing I tell my daughter who likes to ice skate. Keep practicing and someday you may actually get good at it. :razz:
