Re: Desolated Island

I don't personally care much either (I like football, but don't strongly like or dislike either of the teams involved). I found myself rooting for the Patriots, weirdly enough, since I'd planned to...

Re: SOPA, Keystone XL and NDAA

I don't really have a strong opinion on this, plus this thread is hardly one that should be encouraged. Thus, why am I posting? Jon has a knack, I guess.



Agree.



Disagree. If they are...

Re: Whitewashing The Civil War

I thought it was worth updating this with TNC's latest and interesting post on the topic, which is part of a broader discussion he's having on his blog.

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

The powers that be. Just a shorthand way of referring to whoever the decision makers are, same as "Bob et al."

Re: Mitt Romney Hit Piece

Shhh.

Okay, more seriously, I'm curious about this too. I assume it's because Mitt is perceived to be weaker than I think he is, because Santorum is seen as someone who can't win the general (my...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Yes, I read through that after the fact, and it definitely demonstrated the limits. Really a shame.

The new format also makes it impossible to continue discussions or for new people to jump in...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

I thought it was unclear what would happen with the forum, but in fact -- unless I missed something -- the forum hasn't been shut down.

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Oh, I thought there was full disclosure both that the comments/forum were switching to disqus and that the coming bhTV might not be what we've liked so much. In fact, Bob made it sound like there...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Agreed, but like Wonderment said, they don't care about that. They care that there are immediate comments and it looks intelligent (or at least like people are listening and not just trolling,...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

I agree with all this, I'm just skeptical that anyone within TPTB is even reading it, let alone caring. They are set in their ideas of what matters. Sure, I see the comments section becoming more...

Re: What should we disqus here?

Yes, and I hope you are right.



This gets back to my sense that you are focusing on a segment (the minority segment) of Paul voters, probably based on who you personally know and see, who were...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

For the time-being, at least. It's not a long-term solution and I think Wonderment is right that the forum was an extra thing and not part of the current financial model, so we can't expect things...

Re: What should we disqus here?

Yeah -- I just couldn't get away from the analysis before that you were arguing that Paul's support was because of his foreign policy ideas, when it seemed that, within the Republicans, at least, it...

Re: What should we disqus here?

It's basically left like the old Life, the Universe, and Everything section mostly. But we can still have the kinds of discussions that have traditionally gone here. I suspect we could also spin...

The first forum I was ever involved in had a thread called "Outside" so that if discussions got heated or off-topic (or both, usually) in another thread, participants could be requested to "take it...

Ones that would apply more neutrally, certainly, and not depend on a claim that we are under different rules.

Re: An apparition is stalking America

Oh, not sure if I was unclear, but I think so too. I think American history and rhetoric demonstrates that -- the New Jerusalem, City on a Hill, so on. On the other hand, like Florian said, this is...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

Yes, I think so, and thanks for acknowledging that.



I think this is more regional than liberal vs. conservative. Perhaps living in the midwest and having grown up in the west makes a...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

I don't think we've ever gotten a clear definition of "exceptionalism." I agreed with Bob, but I'm not convinced "exceptionalism" would disagree. I take the argument that "American should be...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

That's part of his "Reaganistic delusion."



Interesting. We interpret it differently.



Personally, I agree with this. I just don't think acknowledging that you prefer your country...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

How do you get this out of Wonderment's post?



Interesting. I'd say that Wonderment probably does understand that, even if he wouldn't claim the position himself. It seems to me those that he...

No, this is wrong. The laws in question are racially neutral. (We are talking about anti-discrimination laws, not Affirmative Action.) The argument against them is that we don't generally...
