  •  Troll rating (none)
    The person who is troll-rating comments that s/he doesn't agree with needs to grow up.

    This whole thread, including comments by the new yorker, brady4747, GWBBlows, and libertynow have been civil (if a bit heated sometimes) and part of a legitimate debate.

    I've learned things and rethought some things, including from posters I don't agree with.

    That's how dialog works.  That's how dailykos should work.

    I'm going outside.  It's a beautiful day.

    Later.

    •  your opinion (none)
      Liberty's comments have been trollish to put it mildly - the views expressed are way out of the Democratic mainstream e.g.
      Bush really does want to spread democracy and 9/11 justifies any behavior by the US. The views expressed so far would be more in keeping with Free Republic which is where I suspect the poster normally resides.
       As for the rest of the people you name I agree with you 100%.

      •  Really? (none)
        I think most polling would disagree on that. In fact there are many in the middle (which I apparently reside in) who you reach out to every election. The difference is that I was solidly liberal up until about 4 months ago and have recently shifted to what I believe a fairer position for me.

        On top of that, Kos loudly supports Paul Hackett as a libertarian democrat. Are you saying that libertarians aren't welcome?

        •  Most polling... (none)
          also agreed that Iraq was responsible for 9/11.  And look where that got us. :^(

          FWIW, Libertarians are welcome here.  But whatever your political affiliation, talking points are frowned upon here.  An irrational fear of Muslims isn't what we're here to propogate.

          •  And I did nothing to propagate it (none)
            nor am I asking your permission to post here. You've proven yourself to be more than biased in your own interpretations throughout this thread and I certainly wouldn't assume that most here agree with you.
