Re: The Bromance (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Wow, I could somewhat understand this kind of agruementation, except for the "hounding around" bit.

My New Years resolution is to stop being a racist - so I will quit Rev. Wright's church starting...

Re: Great DV John & Glenn!

Not really. I was looking for 'grown-up' answers to childish questions - not "Childish answers' to childish questions.

I think Rush Limbaugh could've done better.

Who can disagree with that kind of argumentation? Not me.



Who can disagree, diversity wise? There's nothing more interesting than a 30 minute chat on integration and multiculturalism models...

Great DV John & Glenn!

I hope you continue to appear on BHTV no matter what. You are BHTV's most interesting "heads".

And I have to state I agree with Glenn and Ron Paul. We need "grown-up" answers to questions like: ...

I love Kristen's definition of "Right-wing"

Lets see:

-Andrew Sullivan (Voted for Obama)
-Chris Buckley (Voted for Obama)
-Bill Bennett - former Democrat and self-described "neo-con" who called Pete Wilson "racist"
-Ross Donut of the New...

Christopher Hitchens, Bomb Thrower?

Makes him sound rather radical, which is funny considering he wrote for Vanity fair and the New Republic. And - judging by the obits - was beloved by William Kristol and the National Review.

Re: Good job Aryeh!

Stalin helped Hitler for almost 2 years and only stopped helping him because Hitler attacked him. So, no I don't hope Bob finds a "Stalin".

But thanks for the off-the-wall remark.

I haven't listened to the DV but wanted to post anyway, even though I have nothing to say.

Later, I might half listen to the DV and then comment about how I'm half the way through and ask other...

Re: Looks like I was wrong. Here's the CBS poll numbers

Whoops! - didn't see your post till I posted mine on Gallup's poll numbers Palestinians Vs. Israel. I'd agree that strength of opinion is necessary.

Poll Numbers Israel vs. Palestinians

Per Gallup:

More with Israel - 63%
More with Palestinians - 17%
Don't know - 20%

So Mead's 3-1 statement is correct although somewhat misleading. Basically, 37% of Americans either don't care...

Re: Why Don't we just tax stupidity?

I agree except why bring Medicare into it? There's no reason to yoke Medicare and SS together. They only have one thing in common, they benefit old people.

Those who complain about 50% not paying...

Interesting DV especially on Gingrich

I agree that his pro-immigration stance won't hurt Gingrich. McCain after all lead the fight FOR Amnesty and had no problem getting elected. People forget the Republican party is about 1/3...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Why Don't we just tax stupidity?

Crazy Comment by Meade. (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/40010?in=19:00&out=20:21)

And no, more SS spending doesn't mean we need to...

A Politician who's anti-Israel drops 20 points in the polls

Interesting. (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/40010?in=42:30&out=43:41)

At least you understood the points being made and made an intelligent response.

And once again Zeek misses the main point and disagrees with minor point number 42. Your standard technique reminds me of Scott's Adams Post on "How to make someone look stupid on the internet":
