One, I'm not a lib--whatever you think that means. I guarantee you that if you and Scott sat there and spat out all of the qualifications you assign to "libs" you would find that aside from occupation and education I fit few of them.
Second, you seem to have abdicated even basic reading skills as my post began with the phrase "to take just one." I do have the sense that you're able to parse meaning at least that well.
Third, US military policy was argued in this thread some ways back and I was in it (as I recall you weren't); never mind actual activities outside the CN politics forum.
Fourth, I don't even know why this is surprising coming from you, but there are actually many people, liberals and otherwise, who are able to be critical of many fronts--which would mean it's not a choice between criticizing US foreign and domestic policy. That the latter is under discussion this week does not mean that the former is never--not even consistently--scrutinized.
Fifth, I haven't even posted anything yet on this thread that suggests a war on the Bill of Rights or doing away with the Second Am, only that your "defense" of it--if that's what it is--is internally contradictory in almost every post.
Sixth, when in the country I rely on the First almost daily to degrees I suspect don't extend to you in the least--much beyond doing a long slow circuit of forums in between rides and riling the locals. As I suggested to you a couple of days ago, I would be thrilled to see you actually push the envelope of the First Amendment and to see how you react when the Feds take issue with that.
So, please, spare me. The Sky fans seem a little bit more your mettle today.
