Don't generalize what I said.
I think what you're referring to is:
After the Kansas tax debacle, I figured (or rather hoped) that some Repubs would come to their senses and stop peddling the mindless "but we need to cut corporate taxes cause the taxes are stopping them from giving us jobs" riff.
Silly me.
Those people that refused the intellectual courage to even try to discuss the issue obviously don't want to be bothered by facts or reality.
To be clear, I wasn't trying to stereo-type any group. I think some just don't know about the Kansas situation. I would suspect most don't read every thread here.

But those individuals who look at the Kansas situation and refuse to learn any lesson from it? If you've got a better comment on their learning capacity I would love to hear it.

For those who are in a position of authority (politicians), they should be damn well aware of it. Understanding the implications of their proposed actions should be part of their damn job.
You can bet if the Kansas tax fiasco had been successful, they would be crowing about it.

I can sometimes add a side-comment on a thread. But I typically try to give a topical response as well. Some don't even try to give a topical response.
If anybody shows where I didn't give a topical response, I try to correct it.

Beyond that, I don't know what you are referencing. Other than counter-accusing is a ridiculously easy retort...
