I'll argue that. All Roy has to do to make a point in his/her head is say "liberal," and it has the identical effect Hitler evoked when he used the word "Jew." There's no argument needed. The word alone says it all. FOX etal has been working on this for such a long time that Republicans will vote for a liberal over a conservative this fall if it's Hillary V. Trump.

How is this any different than you "making points in your head" by labeling or comparing everyone to a Nazi or a Hitler? We've had that conversation ad naseum so I'm glad someone else called you out on it.

I'm sure you are, and it's easy to understand why. I respect that, but I don't share your sacred paranoia over that issue. Thanks for your comment

"secret paranoia"?
I'd ask you what that nonsensical word pairing is supposed to mean in this context but then you might engage me.
Forget I said anything.

"sacred paranoia..." there are dozens of senseless slaughters of people. You've selected one that you believe rises above the others, and you fear people using other aspects of the parties involved for other purposes as if it somehow takes away from the atrocities. I'm not trying to start a fight...

Not pro bono, technically, though at fifty cents per, it's close. My, I wish I could earn 50 cents for so little effort. Would another fifty cents change your opinion? Now, I guess I owe you fifty cents for making my point. Fifty cents for spraying spittle on your keyboard? Well, nobody ever said fifty cents would buy an education. No fifty cents, to be sure, but no charge either. At fifty cents a pop, no less. Fifty cents comes pretty easy, I say. And makes fifty cents. Fifty cents ain't what it used to be. ducking scientific inquiry at fifty cents a pop? what happens when the 50-cents-worth of kibble stops falling from the dispenser at each press of the lever? I suppose you could make an argument for draining the Koch brothers' reserves, but at fifty cents a pop, that's going to take a while. Fifty cents doesn't buy nuance. Fifty cents per, with an incremental increase to 75 cents over the next 12 years, or some such. (At fifty cents a pop!) As does "fifty cents," so perhaps it's time to count your pennies. But being paid 50 cents to post does count, apparently.
