Liberals are never quite so ridiculous as when they engage in their martyrdom fantasies.
The usual childish BS.
Tom Tomorrow and Ted Rand can't quite amass the reality that the Soviet Union is dead, their socialist religion has been renounced and they are completely irrelevant.
The Marxist God is dead folks! What a lost-in-the-past-group are the commenters on this thread. And the really hilarious part is that they think they are on the bleeding edge.
Get a brain. Time for the left to retire to the monastery in an attempt to come up with something that resembles an idea. Other than the boring old Marxist hatred of the U.S. and the ever popular teenage attempt to shock the parents.
Come on dinosaurs. Haven't you got anything better than another round of 60s nostalgia? You're not shocking. You're boring, and bereft of anything resembling an idea.

I sense that the majority of the people here who are addressing insert issue at hand are slightly misinformed about the issue at hand. I happen to have some more accurate information, with sources and citations, and I offer it here in the interest of clarification. By all means, if, after having read my information and subsequent argument, someone notices something that I have gotten wrong, let me know. I will think about what you've said and process it, and I will either explain why you're wrong or I will adjust my own position. Here is my information: [insert info here]
"Twice within the last month, Muslim terrorists have bombed the subways in London.
You might want to read about the many radical Islamic mosques within the U.K. that openly promote terrorism.
You can agree or disagree with immigration policies, but to describe attempts to limit immigration as "racist" reveals a political agenda on your part that has little to do with reality. In fact, I suspect that you've slandered this man.
One of the unfortunate aspects of the internet is this ability to slander people anonimously. I'd urge you to exercise restraint."
"Whatever about his flirtation with racist politics, Moore is perhaps the coolest monocled TV personality in the world. And then there's the famous fly swallowing incident where, given his narrow time slot and determination to speak as quickly as possible..."
"I've noticed that flame wars are dying out in the comments, too.
Peace in our time? Or just exhaustion.
I remember the good old days. Somebody would scream at you that you were Stalinist scum within two comments.
The steam seems to be running out of the blogosphere.
Tell me it isn't true."

"I have a bachelor's degree is Russian history, literature, language and culture from the University of Illinois, as well as a bachelor's degree in English literature. I'm pretty well read in the classic literature.
In addition, I have a B.A. in music.
I have an M.A. in multimedia from New York University.
I've taught at several universities, including English literature, and now, in design and programming.
What's your resume?"
