You know, I think Beaker's politics are generally whack, but I certainly wouldn't accuse him that way.  That's a strong statement.

As amusing as it might be to watch Hippiechick try and justify her hatred for Republicans, in fairness I have to say that there is another, deeper problem evidenced here. And it's not just her.

We have a problem in the US with one-dimensional political thinking. There is the good guys and the Other Guys. Our media tends to reinforce this, looking at all issues as if there were only two sides and mapping every type of thought onto a left-right axis. The left end is good and wholesome and peace and love, the right end is seething with ethnic and religious intolerance, ignorant savages one AM radio sermon away from lynchings and witch burnings.

I'm on the receiving end of that snide condescension maybe once a day here, and I'm not even a Republican. But I'm not in the left corner of the political universe, and the only label available is "Republican" so I'm automatically a fundamentalist christian, a conservative, and stupid because those are the scary things in the bottom of the box I've been tossed in.

I'd like out, please. But even more I'd like everybody to abandon the idea that there are good and bad guys. Get out more, meet some people who aren't like you. The world will look like a different place!

But it won't be. It'll be the same place it was all along. You'll just see more of it for what it is instead of what you're afraid it is.

 
Uhm..what are DemocrittersSomeone, and he knows who he is, used that term a little while ago.   At least it's not as bad as "Dimocrats", "Dumbocrats", "Demoncrats", "DemocRATS", or "Klinton", "Klintoon", "Klowntoon".....

Back when I was a Forums Virgin, I thought that the online political forums would be a goldmine of useful information, insights from a plethora of points of view, and new ideas, all thoughtfully presented. {#Roflol}   Was I ever deflowered FAST.

Your ongoing mistake - the lesson you have never learned in all these years - is in repeatedly making this personal.  And for that, I will continue to allow you no ground. 
 
No mistake - this is purposefully personal because I (unlike some) am not interested in the ass-kissing facet of your rather limited personality and, so, am immune to it.  I've called you on your behavior, your bigotry, you denegration of people who aren't like you, and you seem to think that your whiny, passive threats are intellectual ballast against your blatant and utter disregard for people who aren't like you.

You & Pam (for somewhat different reasons) are pretty much the only 2 people here I have ever gotten like this with - at least she has the excuse of being a burned-out drunk and drug addict - I don't know what your excuse is, nor do I care - you come here to start trouble, get it rolling, and then lurk while people gnash at each other - that's evil, dude, pure and simple evil.

My advice - if you ever find yourself agressively leaning over the keyboard thinking "oh yeah, well...." - then sit back, take a breath, think of something fun you did in meatspace this weekend. If you find yourself talking (or yelling) at the computer - stop immediately, get out of your chair, walk into meatspace (preferably outside) get some fresh air, buy a coffee for the guy in line behind you, don't talk politics or religion with them, make a human connection. Your life will be better for it. I think we all could stand to do this once a month or so anyway.

It was good advice then, it's good advice now. Especially the bolded parts. Read, do. Try interacting with people who are 'different' than you and you'll find out that they are not so different after all.
