I for one welcome any attempts at real intelligent discussion here, particularly on the W/T boards. I guess you weren't adequately prepared to be flamed to death for suggesting something outside of the acceptable parameters of neo-conservative ideology. This subject has been touched upon on several other threads, however I noticed that your news source has the date of April 9, which was yesterday by my account. I don't see anything wrong with your thread, and I'm sorry you were treated with such disrespect.
I hope you won't be totally discouraged from posting altogether. There are a handful of global thinkers on this board that somehow manage to stand their ground despite the current tone. I personally don't post here much because there are usually others that say it better than I could. Maybe you and I could both put on our asbestos suits, say what we think and let the flames burn. :angryfire
BTW: Fox news = american al-jazeera
Nice. Real nice.
I sure hope that you aren't seriously suggesting that because someone, namely me, that hold conservative views, are not global thinkers or do not contribute to a real intelligent discussion. So, to be a conservative I must be an idiot? How is that any
different than labeling you a flaming liberal who is based soley on emotion and contradiction? Doesn't feel good, does it?
Sweeping generalizations such as yours do nothing to enhance your
point of view and dilute your argument.
Address the issue of each individual poster and how they respond to a situation, not generalize because of their views
and then make some feeble attempt at insulting everyone with that view while trying to prop your own intelligence up on a house of cards.
