    Re: The Reality of Red State Fascism

    As contentious as it often gets, I read a lot of the political threads. The thing I've learned is that I'm not as conservative as I thought I was.

    Even when I don't agree with a person's point of view, I feel like I can learn something, much of the time.

    The right to hold passionate opinions about our country, our system of government, and the world at large is an incredible thing in the history of mankind.
    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

    It is the same premise, so it does start out with "that intent" it is just a bait and switch job, and thus beating a subject to death, anti-bush, blah blah, anti-conservative blah blah, anti-religion blah blah, as if anyone ever claimed they were impeccable to begin with, I think we have all gotten the points that mistakes and errors are made and that there are serious consequences, as well as several things are done right.

    Blah Blah Blah....:deadhorse .... insert - excessive player/president/conservative/religous person criticism or anything along those lines. It is fine to be critical here - that's what this board is for. But let's not beat a subject or a player/president/conservative/religous person to death, please. :deadhorse

    You'll have to show me this "fevor" (I think you meant fervor though) that I demonstrate in opposition to sabermetrics. It's none existent.

    I have disagreements with aspects of sabermetrics, and it's application, that is true. But for the most part, I stay off of those threads on the baseball side that get into a deep analysis of statistical breakdown and application. And I do so out of respect. But even at times when I have "misspoke" (and been misinterpreted) I have come back and apologized. And I have also stated numerous times on here my admiration and respect for the knowledge that guys like yourself possess on here (especially when it comes to baseball history). Do I get any points at all for that?

    But fervor?

    And my TV is not "locked" on Fox. I bounce around quite a bit when it comes to news and information programs. Fox is no better or worse then any of the other news agencies IMO. And they definitely have their faults and biases.

    It's sad when you can't go to ANY news source and get objective truth anymore. Everything has become so partisan, which is why people need to make that extra effort to sort through the garbage.

    Personally, I like blogger websites. :

    He hired 2 bloggers as consultants. One stopped blogging during the primaries, and the other put up a disclaimer saying he was being paid.
