Re: Don't Drink and Tweet (Monica Potts & Conn Carroll)

You spent your tap-time here on an impression of bjkeefe instead of explaining how I "miss(ed) the point entirely," so I'll try again: how do libs, et al know that TARP pulled us back from a...

Re: Don't Drink and Tweet (Monica Potts & Conn Carroll)

Libertarians don't tend to think that what you're talking about is much of a short-coming... if it is at all. Progressives see something that looks less than optimal to them and think "we need to...

Re: Don't Drink and Tweet (Monica Potts & Conn Carroll)

"Sprawl" is a dog-whistle for people called "messwithtexas." What libertarians are complaining about Houston's jumbledness?

Re: Changed Initials Edition (Mark Schmitt & Rich Lowry)

It's "I couldn't care less... "

Not only don't I care, I could not care less. It's impossible for me to care less.

Sorry, I see this the way David Cross (who used to be funny) sees "literally."

Re: Blacks are fast because of Racism

With one disagreement. If you changed the "W. African" to "Kenyan" and flipped the gradient on the x-axis so that the origin was "marathon," then the line would have a similar shape. Even though...

Re: Changed Initials Edition (Mark Schmitt & Rich Lowry)

I mostly mentioned it because Keynesians, who are the agenda (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0nERTFo-Sk), never talk about 1920-1921.

What is the significance of the "mover and shaker" line?

Re: Changed Initials Edition (Mark Schmitt & Rich Lowry)

M.S. had a breakthrough today: why exactly does Krugman claim to know the effects of a given magnitude of "stimulus?" Answer: scientistic fallacy.

Re: Socially-Disadvantaged Minorities=Non-Asian Minorities

Re: Socially-Disadvantaged Minorities=Non-Asian Minorities

So now you think black intellectuals should treat things like the Skip Gates Experience as a chance to denounce "keeping it real" instead of a chance to lie about disparate impact?

Re: What shaped your philosophy?

This response not directed to ledocs as I am on said person's ignore list: Is this statement of ledogs demeaning to homosexuals? I'm not liberal anymore so it's hard for me to judge these things.

Does this mean that you won't call the cops if someone is trying to bash in your door? If not, then it's not pacifism. Getting somebody else to do the violence for you doesn't count.
