    I can tell from all the HRs.

    Ideology is an excuse to ignore common sense.

    •  Bingo. They can't answer the issues raised (3+ / 0-)

      by the diarist and hence the abusive HR's. And yet they are the first to whine about HR's here 24x7. I truly don't get their mentality.

      One bitter fact is two bit hacks populate the third rate fourth estate who are truly the fifth columnists. So, how did Obama piss you off today ?

        This is  just another of the usual Scold And Sneer form pro-Obama diaries.  Just phrased in patronizing and faux victim language.

        It still summarizes to "F**ing see it my way and conform, you insane ****s!!!"

          progressives' inborn gifts. But lie away any way. There is a reason (actually there are many reasons) you insane **s don't resonate with masses, you get that, dontcha?

            when The People has a serious problem, they try out the centrists/conservatives first.  When that approach becomes intolerably insufficient- and it always does- they elect the Right to power.  When the Right inevitably fails The People gives liberals and pliant moderates just enough power to put through the minimal and necessary liberal-advocated reforms.  And then the problem finally starts to go away.

            The country keeps liberals around as a kind of political lifeguard faction.  The liberal job description is to have 50-85% of the right answers at any given low-crisis time (more when deeply in crisis) and capable of stepping in to save the country from itself at fairly regular intervals.

            But our regular business as a country when/where not in crisis is wealth grubbing, status grubbing, power grubbing, ego assertions, ego clashes, and big ego trips.  Liberals are usually deliberate noncombatants, suspect or overt squares, and/or unwanted adult chaperones when and where this  stuff goes on.  Liberals are unpopular most of the time because they're the most reliably adults in these situations, which are the normal.

            And frankly what is the Obama reelection effort at the moment but a massive ego assertion, hoped to end in a grand ego trip, for its participants?
