It's not 'the Left'. They have a purpose, even when it's only as useful idiots. Most of the time there is a better role though, it's to keep all of us 'planted' from the left and right. Truth is, the most significant put downs come from those that agree on other issues, which isn't the majority on this right to center board. Now what really pisses me off is someone, even a young someone, that professes to be 'right' like USMCwhathaveyou, claiming to be a high schooler, abscounding an avatar with the USMC emblem, that says he is planning to enlist out of school. Then he post video from not only 'left' but probably 'terrorist left' and upbraids those that don't agree. In the meantime, figuring this is a 'kid' we've been giving accolades in 'rep' for those posts he made that we could agree with, however weakly. Not of the calibre of normal-but heh, it's a kid. A brave kid. Truth is, a fraud. We've been had.
