What the hell? Nationally unimportant issues? Our character from the Great Northwest is the poster child for bogus "states rights" nonsense that would Balkanize and weaken our nation in so many different ways. States should have the right to limit our liberties and freedoms? Coming from a guy that grew up in Alabama, it's no smaller wonder that he would rally around and promote nonsense.


Like I said, Mr. Ficktion admitted he had no time for national politics until 2000 when his age was probably well over 50, too late to develop a nuanced perspective just by observing the world on the internets. Not that formal education is a prerequisite to compassion, but the only way I know to jam thousands of hours of comparative issue analysis into such a short period of time is full time university education. Mr. Mike hasn't done that since walking out of his last classroom decades ago.

Hyperbole his calling card, closed minded-ness his method. He knows not of what he speaks (to himself, mostly.)

"Compassion", as a national policy, is neither a goal or a path to freedom and national success. It's why liberals are called bleeding hearts, and slavish devotion to it leads to an unearned entitlement mentality followed by national bankruptcy, a la Greece.


The post hoc propter hoc fallacy at work.
