    you should try to challenge conventional thinking, even when you encounter it here on this bastion of the good people of the left.  Hell, even if it comes from me.

    The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama

      I might try it sometime.

      Of course the second part of the advice makes things a bit cloudier . .. .

      .

      does that mean I should challenge your advice to challenge things?  And therefore go back to my default position of * not * challenging things??

      See what happens when I start thinking on my own?  It never ends up well.

        I don't know what I said or what you said.

        And that said, keep on truckin'.  Peace, justice and prosperity to you.
