Your comments here appear to be based largely on opinion or religious values rather than supported by fact, statistics, or any logical argument/objective measures. You state you don’t care what others who disagree with you think, but that’s how we learn and grow, isn’t it? In science, if no one scrutinized or questioned another’s claims, there would be no progress. Same with politics, or anything else. If your argument is a sound one, it will surely stand up to scrutiny, and if you felt strongly enough to post it publicly, then you should feel strongly enough to ‘enlighten’ (or at least tolerate) the rest of us who may disagree with some of your points.
Whether you realize it or not, your blog projects anger, intolerance, and lack of empathy for others. Why?
As a woman, I was very disappointed to read your comments because you are so completely unaware of your bias against women and folks with different sex lives than yours. In fact, you seem biased against anyone who isn’t EXACTLY like you… seriously.
I assume you were kidding, but I’m not sure Sarah Palin’s attractiveness affects her ability to lead our nation. I found her to present herself as quite ignorant, not able to perform well under pressure, and thus not prepared for the job. I also questioned her ethics, in light of some of her past actions. This had nothing to do with ‘feminism’ or what have you. This had to do with logic. I judged her the same way I would judge a man. I wish you would do the same.
On the subject of the war, we all have our opinions, but I feel like the war has made our citizens (both here and abroad) less safe. Wasn’t that the stated purpose, to make us safer? I think it was ill-conceived and has proven itself an expensive failure (well, unless you’re an investor or business who profited from it…) That thousands of men and women sacrificed their lives (or their quality of life, for the disabled) is a travesty. I don’t see how that logically justifies sending more people to suffer and/or die needlessly. What is your definition of "win"? You appear more intent on ‘being right’ than ‘doing what is right.’ I am from a military family, and I have immediate family currently in the service. Do you? I don’t want them to die for what I consider a dishonorable and unwinnable mission. If I felt it were an honorable mission, I would be more willing to make that sacrifice.
That said, I agree with some of what you wrote: media bias, politicians beholden to special interests, etc. I am neither strictly liberal nor conservative, perhaps a little of both. But I was left with the offensive feeling you think you already know it all, when to my eyes you seem quite sheltered.
