    leadership - that's what always lets them get in the way of real progress.

    In the '80s they worked to develop a scripting process that all their minions could learn and a process for entering politics thru local elections so they could gain political ground.

    In the '90s they spent money to find the most appealing words to use to push their agenda while masking it. That's what got them so close in 2000 that they could get Shrub in office.

    Money does buy talent, and cunning leaders in the GOP will try to find ways to advance their agenda - they are experts at pushing lies and making scripts for their followers to memorize. FOX network programs actively reinforce the lies and scripts, so the followers keep up the pressure on the rest of us.

    If they were actually snakes in the grass, we could dispose of them. Since they're not, we have to live with them until they leave the inhospitable environment  we make around them, or they die out. Our boots on the ground should keep them from nesting and increasing.

    Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.
