Exactly- that's what I was saying in reponse to Coyote's post. We need to reach the point as a nation- not just here on a political discussion forum- that we can discuss, not bicker. Each side of every issue has what they believe to be legitimate points and issues to be made. The guy is obviously conservative, but I haven't seen anything comparable by a liberal commentator, or I would be happy to post it as well.

We can't have an adult conversation on anything of importance in this country.

Like I said above- if I could find a comparable liberal commentator's article, I would post it too.

That wasn't a whine that was a shrug. It's different. I just think it's the right whining that we can't talk about things we talk about all the ****ing time. It is republican whining not mine.

Typical left wing Stalinist point of view. Silence any point of view contrary to yours.
