You not responding to simple questions and relevant comments is an even worse way to have a conversation, don’t you think?

An eight paragraph long comment that ends with an insult is a simple question?

Well, not really. Sometimes the view from inside (of one element) can be just a little bit skewed. It could, perhaps, even be infected with a bit of bias. Sometimes the best observers are those from the outside. In my humble opinion, this is such a case.
It is unfortunate that you made the mistaken assumption that I was always a Republican. In my rebellious youth I was a member of the Socialist Worker's Party for a couple of years. I was also active in the Democratic Party. I was once a delegate to a Democratic Party county convention and a precinct captain for the McGovern for President campaign.

Some people want to be made proverbial sweet conversational love to, want a slow hand with an easy touch, take your time - do it right, everything that you do - you do it for them, ya' know? Hmm

Not an insult, like you are in the habit of closing with, just the conclusion of the analogy.

Being compared to a crazy person isn't an insult?

You are correct on one point, friend Hatrack. I wrote too fast. The STATES ratified it, not the legislatures. Beyond that, the sweat of desperation mottles your brow. Do you know what a "Gish gallop" is? That seems to be what you are going for here. It is hard to keep up with all of the fallacies and misstatements incorporated in your response.

You keep bringing up YOUR REBELLIOUS YOUTH and membership in the SWP as some sort of appeal to authority, and it doesn't work, it has never worked.
My oldest brother was a SWP member too. He knows nothing about being a liberal either. Might be because he, like you, has made the mistaken assumption that the Left is "all about rebellion".

Where does one come up with such a faulty assertion?
I'll venture a guess: It comes from people who gravitate to one extreme who, when their idealism is challenged, jump to the opposite extreme and then use their new position as a bully pulpit to lob nonstop character assassination on their old position.

In essence, you're hating your former self and making everyone else pay the tab for damages...but amazingly, all you can account for is that someone on the Left said something mean to you.

Pot meet kettle...the reason I've withdrawn from most of your threads is because you can't resist the urge to peddle broad sweeping generalizations about the Left which only apply to absolute bleeding edge extremists, which of course is all you can relate to when thinking of the Left anyway.

We're all commies, and don't even think of protesting that you've never said that. You have, you do, and you continue to.
We're all communists, or if we're not, we're just ignorant because we don't realize that we're Marxists.

Seriously Hatrack, pull the beam out of your eye before whining about the splinter in ours. You do not know jack squat about ordinary liberals, and it shows.

Blenderizers aren't necessarily crazy, they just have an overpowering urge to throw things in blenders and hit PUREE a lot.
