    You are among those who "get it". Great synopsis!

    Not a chance. But I will admit that it took well into my 30's to develop a true appreciation for just how irrational most folks really are.

    You know, the unfortunate reality demonstrated by this thread is just how little objectivity truly exists. People are far more likely to act on emotion than on reason.

    Am I really so damned difficult to understand?

    To be shocked by the violent response to agitation is ridiculous in my mind.

    Human nature, but I'm awed by it just the same. But my bigger issue in the thread and in general is the lack of recognition of reality when it comes to personal responsibility for one's own safety. To me, you have to recognize the rights of others to be insulted, and to act on their own determination of justification, because in reality that's exactly what most of us do. Push the right buttons on just about anyone and you'll earn a punch in the face.

    I swear you make white guys sound like, what? Belligerently oppressive pricks? Something like that.

    Today's gridlock can be traced directly to the Bork nomination in 1987. Senator Joe Biden (our "post-partisan" VP) led the successful effort to change a Senate review of the nominees' qualifications to judge, to a guessing game about how the nominee would vote on issues of the day.

    The unanimous Brown v Board of Education decision is instructive. Read the record of the Senate Committee investigations of the justices involved. Not a single mention of integration or anything else addressed in the decision.

    Mapp v Ohio was decided by justices who had never been asked during confirmation hearings about the breadth of applicability of the Bill of Rights. Roe v Wade was decided by justices whose views on abortion were never addressed in confirmation.

    The Roberts and Alito hearings are instructive. Both were sitting federal judges at the time of their Senate confirmation hearings. Both records read like impeachment hearings.

    Satire is not a genre understood by the ideologues.

    No pause allowed until everyone acknowledges the perfection of my position.

    There is a coterie of leftist jihadist missionaries from the One and Only True Church of Statism All Others Must Convert or Die that runs roughshod over the entire sub-forum. It's sad, really. Reasoned discourse is impossible without the four or five religious zealots taking over the discussion.

    Yes, I called them religious zealots. Their religion may not involve a God, but it is a religion nonetheless.

    This is the closest thing to brilliance I've seen on the Politics subforum. Impressive.
