    Brook has always been a neo-con boot licker and he made a singular and glaring error in this one when he stated,”Since they no longer speak in the language of social order, Republicans have very little to offer the less educated half of this country.” The less educated half of this country IS the Republican base, especially in the South, without wealthy conservatives and politicians firing them up with religion, race baiting, xenophobia, and the fear of government, they wouldn’t get any votes. They’ve run out of angry middle aged white guys, the Tea Party is a bunch of idiots, and there’s really no reason to justify their existence, other than to ensure that the wealthy and corporations benefit from government largess.

    We should all give thanks for conservatives to balance the irrational decisions made by the liberals. Liberals keep trying to fit a square peg into a round hole to fulfill some kind of utopian dream that will never work. All it ends up doing is put more citizens on government dependancy and increase the tax burden on the middle class. Liberals think that if we are just nice to the jihadists in the Middle East and not say nasty things about Mohammed, people will love us. This results in huge foreign policy failures as we are seeing now when the only thing those people understand is force. For liberals a terrorist act is termed a “human caused disastor” so as not to offend Islamists. In short liberals are not logical people but are driven by their emotions. They do mean well though, but we all know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Speaking of hell, liberals hate religion except for Islam. When they are all wearing veils, they will regret their weakness.

    Thanks for proving my point, Frank and adding to your steaming pile of increasingly absurd and irrational right wing pronouncements.

    Conservative icon and mugshot model Mel Gibson to star in topical sequel to his hit comedy “What Women Want” to be called “What Liberals Want”.

    Frank, a somewhat chauvinistic engineering exec hot shot, has his life turned haywire when a fluke accident enables him to hear what liberals think. At first all he wants to do is rid himself of this curse, until a wacky psychologist shows him that this could be used to his advantage!

    Very funny Greg, but the truth is liberals and conservatives think in totally different ways. Conservatives tend to be more logical, while liberals tend to make decisions on their emotions.
