    •  the empirical evidence wrt torturous activity (0+ / 0-)

      implies that your friend is correct in his conclusions about whether there are fundamental differences between dems and rethugs. just because he doesn't judge plastics well doesn't mean he doesn't judge character well.

      maybe you should examine and re-think your own attitudes and give up the snobbery.
