The ongoing war between Republican ideology and the facts

Good to know you support Sharia law Richard.  Not that I am surprised.

--------

{Politics.955.1196}: Richard Clark {cardo} Wed, 16 Oct 2013 23:49:34 EDT (1 line)

You can make all the idiotic claims you want.  There is no limit.

{Politics.955.1197}: Elizabeth Costello {lizcostello} Thu, 17 Oct 2013 10:54:00 EDT (1 line)

No limit to your devotion to sharia?  I'm not the least bit surprised.

Why do you waste people's time with childish, idiotic comments like that? I know you can't be that stupid.

{Politics.955.1199}: Senator Lampoon {yesdeer} Thu, 17 Oct 2013 12:36:48 EDT (HTML)

...says the Richard as he makes a childish, idiotic comment.

 I think he is a parody of himself.

Last week, Moyers & Company caught up with Mother Jones science writer Chris Mooney, host of the Inquiring Minds podcast and author of The Republican Brain: the Science of Why They Deny Science – and Reality, to talk about what this research may tell us about the attitudes of those involved in the tea party movement. Below is a lightly-edited transcript of our discussion.

Did you read that Richard.  The finding is that tea partiers are
better at science than liberals.

Go figure.

"So what youâ*™re describing is his moral foundation of â*œharm,â** which liberals tend to feel more strongly about. These are emotions relating to empathy and compassion â*“ measured by the question of how much someone is suffering and how much that suffering is a moral issue to you. How much is caring for the weak and vulnerable a moral issue to you?

Itâ*™s not that conservatives donâ*™t feel that emotion, it's just that they donâ*™t feel it as strongly. They feel other things more strongly. This explains the healthcare debate because liberals feel, most of all, this harm-care-compassion thing much more strongly.

Conservatives feel it less strongly -- they have this other morality that is much more predominant, having to do with things like being anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage. For Conservatives, basically, youâ*™re supposed to get what you "deserve." (And of course the rich and 'successful' "deserve" more -- at least that's the way it is in the eyes of conservatives! And what really bothers them is somebody not getting what they "deserve." Therefore, when the government gets involved and interferes with the "natural order of things," i.e. people getting what they naturally "deserve," it's really bad -- as far as conservatives are concerned.

Slightly edited by yours truly, to better express what I think was essentially meant to be said.

Funny stuff.  Conservatives embracing Darwin and Liberals denying
Darwin.  Who knew?

Richard needs a job

{Politics.955.1206}: Richard Clark {cardo} Sat, 09 Nov 2013 20:37:27 EST (1 line)

Otis needs to butt out.

Richard's butt hurts from sitting on it all day.

If you are unable to contribute anything to the discussion, why do you waste our time with your cheap-shit remarks? Have you nothing better to do than to amuse yourself by insulting people? If the answer is yes, why no dwell on that fact for awhile, and then find something better to do with yourself?

That's all I have to say to you. I will not waste my time by responding further to your assholery and asshole remarks. Nor should anyone else.

{Politics.955.1209}: Elizabeth Costello {lizcostello} Sun, 10 Nov 2013 14:33:05 EST (2 lines)

Richard you insult people constantly.   Time to man up because you
give as good as you get.

--------

{Politics.955.1210}: Richard Clark {cardo} Sun, 10 Nov 2013 14:46:52 EST (HTML)

I have several times offered to take a no-insult pledge with anyone who wants to agree to it mutually. So far, no takers.

--------

{Politics.955.1211}: Senator Lampoon {yesdeer} Sun, 10 Nov 2013 14:52:28 EST (HTML)

I suggested you go first. You haven't, won't, and probably can't because whenever you are challenged, especially when your troll mate can't or won't help you out, you go personal attack.

--------

{Politics.955.1212}: Richard Clark {cardo} Sun, 10 Nov 2013 15:33:30 EST (2 lines)

Like I said, I'm waiting for someone to mutually take the pledge,
i.e. with me. One on one.

--------

{Politics.955.1213}: Senator Lampoon {yesdeer} Sun, 10 Nov 2013 18:57:57 EST (HTML)

If you really want to lead, then lead. Otherwise, you're just playing a game of chickenshit.

--------

{Politics.955.1214}: Richard Clark {cardo} Sun, 10 Nov 2013 20:52:26 EST (1 line)

We all know who the game player is here.

--------

{Politics.955.1215}: Elizabeth Costello {lizcostello} Mon, 11 Nov 2013 07:48:56 EST (1 line)

He's afraid to lead.  He prefers to be a slave.

--------

{Politics.955.1216}: Richard Clark {cardo} Mon, 11 Nov 2013 11:49:39 EST (1 line)

We also know who the idiot is, here.

--------

{Politics.955.1217}: Elizabeth Costello {lizcostello} Mon, 11 Nov 2013 15:11:07 EST (1 line)

A slave by choice is by definition an idiot.

--------

{Politics.955.1218}: I keep forgetting: {cardo} Mon, 11 Nov 2013 15:31:01 EST (1 line)

DNFTT

{Politics.955.1219}: Elizabeth Costello {lizcostello} Mon, 11 Nov 2013 20:01:24 EST (3 lines)

If I were a slave I'd say the same thing.

So Richard, how many weeks could you survive without the government?
