If its a wit you like Relene, I have to ask if its half, quarter, or 3/8?

That leaves you out, Christopher, since you don't even make the chart... whether personality, intellect, education, manners, intelligence, empathy, honesty, trustworthiness, character or knowledge... you're very near to zero, and anybody who reads here regularly knows it.

C'mon Phil. You aren't that ignorant, and you most certainly aren't inexperienced.

The right and left also point out the partisanship in government that has taken over. Everyone points fingers you are not better than someone else.

You're right Mr. Reeder, we, as Independents point fingers at extreme partisanship and political corruption that is dominating this government.

I'm fairly-certain Porky Limbaugh relies on such ignorance...that none of his fans risk double-checking what he tells them...seeing-as-how he ALREADY knows what his fans want to believe.

There seems to be something liberating about ignorance and inexperience. You are free to believe whatever you want to, unencumbered by hard facts and, if you have political power, to impose your headstrong ignorance on those with first-hand knowledge.

Mr. Reeder, it's the constant back and forth finger pointing that is dividing this nation. And the politicians and the media play a huge part in that and it's sad that so many consume this rubbish and regurgitate and believe everything they hear. That's why you have more and more people refusing to tow the party line and choose to be independent and think for themselves.

It is not the media who refers to them as elitist it the elitist right wing that does. So it is the right who sees stupidity as a virtue.

I think if some actually had a chance to work within the government and were able to see the amount of waste fraud and abuse, they may not be so progressive. I'm not saying we don't need government in our lives, but I do feel the system has become so bloated over the years and it needs major reform. We just can't afford it. And you can collect all the taxes you want from the rich and big business, the fact is, the more they have, the more they spend. And BOTH sides of the aisle are guilty.

I think you've been a "little" misinformed. The Stupidity of Gridlock was not an "elitist"-creation...and I can't think of ANY Progressives who see Gridlock as a Virtue.

Hey there my moronic friend, you seem to be jamming up your narrative about the media being "liberal". Well, with so many narratives propping up your failing ideology, I'm sure it's hard to keep them all straight.
