hmm.... Both sides are equally as bad. So you are in the middle? Selfless, with no position either way?

My side is without flaws....lol ( I don`t remember typing that? ) But it is easier to disagree if you demonize my views or me personally isn`t it?

Diversity of opinion and ideas is a good thing. But some of those that claim to be tolerant and open to all - many times really are not. Don`t believe it, simply disagree with them and watch their reaction. You probably don`t see it much because you don`t disagree with them. But those of us that do not agree see their reactions all the time.

again have a great Holiday.

That chick is full of herself. If anyone thinks that one side is alltogether better than the other then they are delusional. The corruption and the lies are rampant in both major parties and it doesn`t take much to see it all for what it is.

People need to forget about the party and deal with the individual issues. What is that line from Patch Adams? "You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person I`ll guarantee you`ll win." Well the same logic can be applied to politics if people would take the time and have the patience to get over themselves for ten effing seconds.

Most people in Governemtn on both sides need to go away and stay gone. We need some real people in there that are honest and know what transparency, ethics and the concept of working together is.

[quote]I see Altaru....if both sides are equally to blame than her actions can`t be so bad? So they did it first or they do it too? Now I see the logic.[/quote]
No, the logic is that both are as bad as the other, so trying to claim that YOUR side is flawless and the other is wrong is total bullsh*t.

In other words: She`s bad. But you`re no better.

And you, with your crap here, are simply reinforcing my point that both libs and cons have their little bubble of reality, and if it doesn`t agree with their POV, then they won`t actually see it, they`ll only see the parts they want to take from it.

and I didn`t type what sets you off. You did.

Actually in this case I think it was pretty obvious and anyone can see it if they aren`t blinded by their idealogy. Don`t you?

Happy Holidays.... or Merry Christmas to you.

@inaria, I totally agree with you on that point. We don`t necessarily elect people who are good at governing. We elect people who are good at getting elected. But we`re partly to blame as an electorate, because we`re more likely to act on emotion than reason, and people who devote themselves, cynically or altruistically, to politics know this better than we do.

What is the question she`s responding to? This is just stupid. What`s with the hate that she`s backing up with absolutely nothing? If you`re talking about disliking any political group you could use real examples, it`s not like there isn`t a TON of them for any position to use.

Am I supposed to be shocked by this? Garafalo is a progressive. She`s saying things that progressives say. And, generally, I think she`s correct. I`m sorry that there are people who think that progressives are being selfish for spending money (theirs and others) for the public good.

@simmerslodra The problem is, the majority of politicians aren`t qualified to run society, and don`t think with reason or with the best interests of their population in mind. At least it`s that way in Canada and America.

Screaming on the right. Smug cynicism on the left. Everybody pointing fingers and nobody actually trying to find workable solutions. And because regular people take their cues from polemics like this they insult anybody with differing opinions with regurgitated sound-bites. It`s getting harder and harder to be a moderate these days. Ideologues have it easy because they have a built-in audience of people who agree with everything they say.

Honestly I think she has a point about neurological function affecting the way the majority of people engage with politics, except she doesn`t mention that it happens on the left as well. I don`t quite remember, but I think I read in "The Nuero Revolution" that studies have shown that the emotional centers Janeane refers to are mainly what`s active in the midst of political discussions. That happens on the left and the right though. I believe this is a trait that benefits social cohesion of small populations, by permitting them to more consistently differentiate their groups from others. But this trait wreaks havoc on the social cohesion of larger groups. I think that in order to create a decent society, we have to have the balls to realize when we are clinging to an agenda for the sake of dominating some intellectual rival out of territorial instinct and not public interest. But folks are usually too caught up in wanting to feel like they`re right to get to that point.

Looking back, I see what you mean now... When I grouped all partisan dumbasses into the one massive group of people who pick and choose what they let into their world-view.

Unfortunately, you haven`t proven it any less true with your posts so far, so while I will take back the sweeping generalization, I will say that YOU and Madest, a couple of IAB`s local representatives of the two extremist wings, both fit quite snuggly into that category...

How is it hypocritical to recognize a pattern, DISLIKE the information, but still take it in?

See, that`s the fundamental difference between you and I, and the one I`m pointing out that, in a way that reinforces my point even further, you seem to miss: I may not LIKE it, but at least I watch and listen to it all the way through, and take it as it is. You, on the other hand: If you don`t like it all, you`ll pick and choose the parts to accept into your world-view.

I take information like food: Whether I think I`ll like it or not, I`ll still eat it.

You, on the other hand, are one of those finicky eaters who only eats the parts they know they like, and leaves the rest of the plate...

"It`s going to be retarded" because it`s going to be like most everything you post: un-entertaining and flame-war inducing. And "it was." It`s called knowing patterns. And the pattern is, your submissions are retarded.

I DID take it all in. I just feel dumber for it, which I [sarcasm]thank you for[/sarcasm]. I have a headache now from the rapid influx of stupidity, both from this b*tch and your dumb ass...

its funny, i know she`s a crazy bitch and just as stupid as the some of the right wingers, but I read something a while back about how being liberal could be neurological, something about not having enough parental support as a child and therefor craving it in the form of government as an adult. Just goes to show you can`t trust anyone who spews political garbage and tries to pass it off as science.

Also: I`ll listen to it, if it`s placed in front of me. I`ll listen to it ALL. As evidenced by the fact that I`m one of an apparently select few that noticed her saying that republicans and cons weren`t the same thing, and that she was insulting republicans, not conservatives (thought I have no doubt she`s likely insulted cons the same way before...).

I don`t actively seek out information most of the time, but when I come across it, I take it ALL in, not just the parts I want to see that suit my agenda.

How`s that suit your attempt at calling me a hypocrite? Which is, in effect, insulting me, since I`m not... Which means you ARE, because you accuse me of insults, then proceed to insult me (like constantly calling me a liberal, which I`m not)...

I`m mainly liberal, but this wasn`t brains, this was generalization and ignorance just like we hear spewed from the conservatives. If you go back to what the Republican Party was founded on, that is, more state-run laws and decreased taxation, then I can see the attraction. It`s just right-wing idiot radicals, and now more and more from the left-wing as well, that pollute the fouhding morals of both parties. I say we throw out parties all together.

I listened to her, yet I still "don`t want to hear" her message of hate. How does THAT fit into your theory? Do YOU want to listen to her hate? Does that make you a "con" by your own logic?

Well... After watching it (and yes, I was right, it was pretty damn retarded) and reading the other comments, I would like to point out one thing: She didn`t say republicans were conservatives, she quite clearly stated that they weren`t, they "just like to CALL themselves that, so that`s what I`m going to call them."

So... I don`t like her, she`s all flash-bang and no actual explosion (like a lot of radio personalities...), but it`s so typical of cons to never actually listen to anything they don`t want to hear. Typical of both sides, really, if Madest is anything to go by...

Conservatism is about frailty? Frail to stand up for what is right even when a lot of the world doesn`t want to live by standards, have family values and work hard to maintain that family for life, applies what they believe religious to their personal lives and their actions (not just saying, but actually doing the good things they ask others to do) even when others can`t see them. If those things are frailty, then someone needs to look the word up and change what they think about frailty. This lady has nothing but empty words and no proof to back it up.

It`s amazing to me that "she has all the perfect answers" amounts to ad hominem attacks. These are exactly the same tactics that people hate about right-wing radio types: people who disagree are stupid, are uninformed, have mental disorders, are evil, or are blindly following a big personality like a sheep. I consider myself to be pretty conservative on many issues (not all though) but I can still recognize that many of the political differences that I have with liberal friends are honest differences in values. It`s not that they are deranged (or any of the other attacks that I just mentioned) it is that I view the world in a different way. I also completely respect them and their views.
