how can that be an oxymoron?
you mean, its paradoxical to read a "closed-minded" person's writings with an open mind?
one can respect ideas and arguments one disagrees with. didn't you ever do that debating stuff, where you are randomly assigned a position to defend?
> i should've guessed you were a closet buchanan
> backer, what was that group of his,"fairies
> with pitchforks"?
eh? he's about as anti-gay as they come. yet i respect him and his opinions and his integrity, and i'll read him with an open mind.
figger's you'd like bush, a man with no principles and no integrity, and badmouth anyone who even modestly opposes him. how much are they paying you to think that way? oh yeah, i remember, tax cut. um, i mean, 'jobs and growth' package. laff. take the money and run, huevos. a condo in shanghai.
i should've guessed you were a closet buchanan backer, what was that group of his,"fairies with pitchforks"? i think you guys are the ones with the plaid shirts(which like a camera,add ten pounds you can ill afford)
> now when have you ever seen me mention pat
i haven't. *i* have mentioned him, because i LIKE him. in spite of his anti-gay attitudes, which i can tolerate (since he's roman catholic).
> but i do love how you quote the ny times as if
> they are a pillar of truth
me? everything below the url was quoted from pat buchanan, not me. that includes the times quote.
> interesting you want to lay mass immigration
> on bush
no, pat buchanan is. i quoted it here pretty much because of the telling and quite apt comment about the GOP supporting policies that are equivalent to public suicide.
> nem, lol
i like nem! did u buy the downgrade!?
i like this one. (from the "bushism of the day", on slate.com.)

"[T]hat's just the nature of democracy. Sometimes pure politics enters into the rhetoric." � Crawford, Texas, Aug. 8, 2003 (Thanks to Inigo Thomas.)
now when have you ever seen me mention pat buchanan? that must be from one of your neo-nazi friends(don't tell them you're gay)-----but i do love how you quote the ny times as if they are a pillar of truth,perhaps in berkeley they might seem so-----yell it loud and long, and it still don't make it true, interesting you want to lay mass immigration on bush, that's usually a dem ploy to get more enrolled voters, then support them forever, a big fence and alligators in the rio grande is more to my liking..........nem,lol
Shrub's statement of the day from yesterday:
"There are a lot of leakers in Washington"
I'm glad we have someone leading our cunntry who has such a deep and understanding command of the English language.
speaking of pat buchanan, here's a dribblet from him tonight. enjoy.
of course, you're gonna dismiss him too as a liberal democrat. (see knee. see knee jerk. its called "the coulter effect".)
Certainly, the recession of 2001 and the "jobless recovery" go far toward explaining what the New York Times ominously described as "the second straight year of adverse changes in both poverty and income, the first two-year downtown since the early 1990s."
Like the Times, we all remember who was president in the early 1990s, as does George W. Bush.
But there are mega-trends in society that have been working for decades to keep the poverty numbers high and median incomes low. And though they feed the endless expansion of Big Government and prevent any downsizing of the Welfare State, these trends have been endorsed by a GOP Establishment that seems to be committing suicide in broad daylight.
The mega-trends are two: the deindustrialization of America, the direct result of a globalism preached and practiced by Bush Republicans, and mass immigration, also preached and promoted by Bush Republicans.
