    "Pick a side or you're damned!" The problem is, which side and what are the sides? Is there even a side to be picked?

    Bah. I'm sorry if I misrepresented your position, but I'm sick of the "you're with us or against us" rhetoric around here. Anybody uprating a comment is considered and "apologist" and a "felloe traveller" for the "other side". Anyobody who's a "pragmatist" is a DCL sellout.

    I'm tired of it, and I apologize if I took it out on you.

      That's the liability of communicating via snark.  lol

      From where I sit, everyone needs to take a chill pill and understand that their particular ideology isn't going to be useful or practical in every single situation.  What's useful and practical in my mind are actual solutions to the problems that will work.

      I do not believe, for instance, that HCR is a left, right or center question.  I believe that it is a problem that requires serious consideration and well thought out solutions.  Unfortunately, leadership and penny-ante players across the political spectrum have reduced the debate to the lowest common denominator of political punditry and gamesmanship.  The Democrats - my beloved party - have made the mistake of putting ideology before policy - and that is a problem.
