Even liberals who've accomplished a lot in their lives and have high IQs often say things on a regular basis that are stunningly, profoundly stupid and at odds with the way the world works. Modern liberalism has become so bereft of common sense and instinctually suicidal that America can only survive over the long haul by thwarting the liberal agenda. In fact, liberalism has become such a toxic and poisonous philosophy that most liberals wouldn't behave differently if their goal were to deliberately destroy the country. So, how does liberalism cause well-meaning, intelligent liberals to get this way? Well, it starts with...

"6) Liberals take a dim view of personal responsibility. Who's at fault if a criminal commits a crime? The criminal or society? If someone creates a business and becomes a millionaire, is that the result of hard work and talent or luck? If you're dirt poor, starving, and haven't worked in 5 years, is that a personal failing or a failure of the state? Conservatives would tend to say the former in each case, while liberals would tend to say the latter. But when you disconnect what an individual does from the results that happen in his life, it's very difficult to understand cause and effect in people's lives."

My favorite one in the whole article.

This is MY favorite also. I have always maintained this. But what about if a liberal is the victim of crime? Do they blame themselves?

Couldn't you have just said I hate liberals 7 times?
Couldn't you just post a list of republicans that behave badly?
When Republicans behave badly and by God they do, they at least admit it and resign. When Democrats behave badly they deny it, blame somebody else, stay in office and end up being appointed to a cabinet position.

The world as aghast at the ignorance, arrogance, xenophobia, violence, and stupidity of the Ugly 'Merican conservative.

So much bullshit, so little time. I don't see any evidence or references backing up his hate filled article. So really cannot respond until he does.

John Hawkins is one of the biggest idiots ever. Right up there with Jonah Goldberg, Ann Coulter, Dick Morris, and Louie Gomert.

Yeah, that one is pretty funny I agree.

This one is pretty funny too;

3) Liberals emphasize feeling superior, not superior results.
Thanks, I needed a laugh today.

Are you saying the right does not do that? :lol:
Agnew didn't pay his income tax - he resigned as VP. Nixon was found guilty - he resigned. Charlie Rangle denied his wrong doing forever. John Edwards is a piece of crap - he denied and stayed in office. Geithner didn't pay HIS income tax - he appointed Secretary of the Treasury. I said both parties do wrong, no doubt about it, but Democrats nortoriously deny any wrong doing and unless forced to resign, do not.

Number 3:

3) Liberals emphasize feeling superior, not superior results. Liberalism is all about appearances, not outcomes. What matters to liberals is how a program makes them FEEL about themselves, not whether it works or not. Thus a program like Headstart, which sounds good because it's designed to help children read, makes liberals feel good about themselves, even though the program doesn't work and wastes billions. A ban on DDT makes liberals feel good about themselves because they're "protecting the environment" even though millions of people have died as a result. For liberals, it's not what a program does in the real world; it's about whether they feel better about themselves for supporting it.
hits the nail on the head. It is not whether or not a program works, it is who owns it. Which "party" gave it to us.

The program can royally suck ass like the Stimulus plan or ACA '09, but hey, a Democrat gave it too us so it must be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
