Sham, if you actually have ever "thought" your brain would catch on fire. Thanks for the morning laugh, though. LOL

Watching the Democratic Convention voice vote on whether to add the word "God" back into their platform.

Ah, yes...more o' the "magic" of "absolutes"...where BELIEF trumps KNOWLEDGE.

That's what "Tingles" Chrissie Matthews told you to say, right Shammy?" - VinceKnauff

No...it's BEEN most-obvious to others (like myself), who were raised in extremely-"conservative" Protestant (and, other such mainstream-religious) households.

"Absolutes" have been developed (since creation of the spoken-word), by those in positions-of-power, to "help" the general-public avoid the "messy"-business of Thinking/Reasoning...and, the MOST-lazy, of mankind, have been eternally-grateful; ever since.

...Ever since the least-educated (of the U.S. population) first "discovered" politics, after hearing such sophomoric-responses as "There you go, again."

Our political-process seems to have atrophied...at an accelerated-rate...ever since.

Example 1? The Tea Party.

Shiloht," You post ideological rhetoric without any forethought or insight."

Maybe you should look up rhetoric. I believe what you mean is talking points, but in using the work rhetoric in that manner, you have just shown yourself to be doing just what you are complaining about. This is just another attempt to shut people up who disagree with you. Maybe you should have used a little forethought and insight.

Shiloht, you tend to paint everyone with a broad brush. While I agree with some of which you state with regards to a few who participate on this forum, I also think that many on here, regardless of political views, include well thought out opinions that many times are supported by facts. Like any other type of media, you are free to ignore part or all of what's posted. But seeing as you came to the conclusions you have, it seems you choose to read these comments.

Seriously - it is understandable how such concepts as common sense and observation would confuse you.

You make the entire region look like backward hicks. You're an embarrassment.

Shilot - look up the psychological definition of 'projection' and see if it fits your comments here.

Familiarity with reality is confirmation for many if not most of the opinions entered by conservatives here, as well as the contradiction for many if not most of the Liberal opinions entered here.

Mr. Reeder:

"You want proof of personal choices?

How about those that choose to remain hooked on drugs?

People choose assistance over work as evidenced it pays more than minimum wage in some areas.

People choose a life of crime over work.

People choose to have sex without any regard for creating a family, just to have fun, then suffer the consequences of their poor choices.

For Mr. Reeder to claim there is no proof that personal choices have nothing to do with poor outcomes demonstrates his total lack of any authenticity, credibility or honesty."

erik......The above would be a perfect LTE, exactly as is, in reply to King Bloviator's LTE full of crap.

Shiloht --

I personally think that the Sun-Gazette is doing what it should be doing--printing everyone's point of view. Even if most of them are slanted to one side or the other. Everyone should be heard about their opinions, because without these opinions we cannot create healthy dialog to get things done. Right or wrong ideas are what makes this country great and makes exceptional people. Keep it up Sun-Gazette.

Chuck, What is this weird compulsion you have to refute everything that Phil says? You are like some kind of stalker. It's creepy, not to mention that you always fail miserably. In this case you actually tended to prove what you claimed Phil didn't prove and then claimed that he was wrong. This letter was complete nonsense. You show some signs of being able to think, but then the hate and rage take over and any rational thought goes out the window. Two words, Anger Management.

I actually think the Sun Gazette should shut this whole forum down. That guys letters stem from the vile all of spew in here. The community would be better off without the trash you folks waste your time posting on this forum. You make the entire region look like backward hicks. You're an embarrassment.
