Pssst! Your bias is showing.
I underlined it for you to hep ya. Ernest Borgnine just died. Bummer, but Buddy Epson is who I liked the most.
"Ya heppin me boy"
most of the left lives a fact-based existence
Kewl! So, howya figgure?
can be convinced that certain ideas that come from the right have some merit.
I certainly see that by how many of them put non-leftists on their personal ignore feature, publicly beg others to do the same, ask for banishment of those heretics, etc. Granted, conservatives boards probably do it also, but using madison as an example, there are only two internet boards that I know of and neither have shown much acceptance of things non leftist.
I also have lived the shout downs, bull horns, banishment of the leftist UW of any speaker deemed 'not correct' by the self proclaimed free speech and full rights leftists. You ever been to any of those?
Take, for example, the health insurance mandate, which was not favored by the left, but which President Obama thought was an idea from the right that could get us to nearly universal coverage....
So zerobams is more pragmatic than the ideologues of the left.
That is pretty much a given as zero gave nothing for anyone to latch onto, as far as his policies, his beliefs, heck even who he was. But like he told the union thugs, sieu, we'll get socialized medicine, it just may take a while, maybe 10 years or so.
If ya think about it, it's not too hard how the individual mandate and insurance mandates out of washington can quickly lead to everyone winding up on government health care.
The left today is more pragmatic and less ideological than it once was.
I think 96 was a hint but 2010 taught a new generation of leftists that. Unfortunately, the leaders of the left...aka democrat party....are serious ideologues, so they use the machiavellian ends justifying the means approach to our own good.
Because the left is more pragmatic and fact-based,
So then why aren't ya'll going after barrett and the transgenerational destruction of the black folks in milwaukee?
Milwaukee desperately need money and waukesha needs water, something milwaukee has plenty of. So why doens't barrett sell the water to waukesha?
If you have real issues with the Affordable Care Act as it is implemented, it's fair to address those so the Act works better.
Back up a sec there hoss (white, country expression).
Why was there no concern over the "how" or "what" of obamacare when it was NOT debated?
"We need to pass this bill to see what's in it"?
Did yous guys (not an expression I use a lot) have this great concern about the BS lie called "transparency" when this conjob of a law was bribed through democrat controlled congress? Even as it was still being delivered the night before it was to be signed?
Was any of these facts part of ya'll's fact based existence you speak of?
