    To be honest, I believe the Left is pushing a McCarthyite attitude, but some of the ideals are good in intent.

    However, I saw the name of the person writing the article and I had to admit that it just made me feel that it's a bunch of b-s.

    Ah, but the road to hell is paved with such.

    That - in spite of the plain, inescapable truth he spoke? My friend, you'll come to realize that your feelings can be easily manipulated. There are people who have made it their life's work to do precisely that - and, ultimately, they don't wish you well. Trust fact-based reason - it has no ax to grind.

    No they're not. It's a rouse.

    Well, you lie to yourself all the time. I would think it's getting kind of hard for you to even recognize the truth when you see it after doing it for so long.

    And you do this all the time. It's become your patent way to dismiss something you don't "want" to believe... oh... it's just BS.... :rolleyes:

    I didn't say they performed the good ideals. I just said they have good ideals.

    Yes, I lie to myself 24/7 because it makes me feel like I'm a man, especially when I put a spike into my veins and I tell you things aren't quite the same.

    In sincerity, I call bullshit where I see it. This is bullshit and that's my opinion.

    Kathianne --

    The new McCarthyites? Sorry. That's a bunch of bull. It's still the right, you know, the ones who say it's "unamerican" to criticize Bush and the Bushies. The ones who say if you question the incompetence, you're "helping terrorists". So, no, I'd say the basic premise is wrong.

    As far as the fiction that your guy tries to pass off as "fact", it isn't borne out by the 9/11 Commission report. I figure that's a better source than the lie-a-mentary.

    Jillian--

    To villify someone for what 'sins' the father has done, in this case starting a Christian youth program, sorry that does seem to be as open minded as saying that JFK was responsible for his father being Catholic or a bootlegger, not sure of which would be worse now, but in any case, would just be a strawman to keep him out of office, no?

    That had nothing to do with what I was addressing. I was talking about the lie-a-mentary.

    Spot you later.
