I had a thought today. From all the extreme left and right, their arguments make absolutely no sense and have no logic.. Is this becuase of pure stupidity or is it that it is fake. For instance, is sissy-boy a true republican and confesses he is a liberal with these wacked out views to explain the ignorance of liberals (or vice versa)? Is that understandable or should i rewrite it?

I think their arguments go off because they forget they are 'talking' to another human being whose opinions, as uninformed or ridiculous as they appear, are just that-opinions. And the more insulting one gets to another, the less they are taken seriously.
The forum rules cover name-calling( I admit, I did use a name, but not half as bad as what's been tossed about), but politics and religious discussion seems to bring out the absolute worst in people.
What you said makes sense. Once the facts are put up, though, all decorum and common sense take a backseat to the counter-attacks. The 'Is being gay a choice' and all the abortion forums have completely gone offcourse because one side is so intent on trying to change the other side's viewpoint, they go ballistic when they fail at it. Shame really...at this point, if the forum rules were enforced strictly, there'd be 3 people left and not necessarily me.

I think 'pure stupidity' hits the nail right on the head.:lol:

Well if Cheney goes out of power, it is good news.

When you saw "Tourism is canabalizing Alaska's economy"

He could have meant many things, I think he meant that the tourist industry may be harming something, say the environment.
