Yournamehere, this is going to sound sarcastic but it's not: I honestly have no idea what you're trying to say. The post on which you're commenting was inspired by an email I received in response to an earlier post calling out Senator Voinovich for hypocrisy. I've been doing that for a long time now -- to the point where even I'm finding it tedious -- but I've been doing it precisely because such points are rarely made in the mainstream media. That's also why I wrote the post above, to connect the dots between mainstream conservative political rhetoric and recent acts of violence, because the MSM rarely do.
It's worth noting, too, that these blog posts are just one part of Scene's coverage. At least I think that's worth noting -- I'm not sure if any of this is responsive to your comment because, again, I don't understand what you're driving at. But I'm happy to listen if you want to try again.
DK, I'm 20 years past my 20s, and you're the one who needs to grow up. My father and I could not be more diametrically opposed politically, and yet we can talk for hours because we're willing to listen to each other -- not turn the other into caricature like you did in your responses to me. And now you're going to try to sound reasonable? Too little, too late, you're still an arrogant asshole. (By the way, I printed your note because it makes you look far worse than I ever could. Dumb ass.)
from the washington monthly article: "Until recently, Texas’s influence was balanced to some degree by the more-liberal pull of California, the nation’s largest textbook market. But its economy is in such shambles that California has put off buying new books until at least 2014."
and from the TPM report: "Complaining that the standards were "rife with leftist political periods and events: the populists, the progressives, the New Deal, and the Great Society," McLeroy offered this amendment: "Describe the causes and key organizations and individuals of the conservative resurgence of the 1980s and 1990s, including Phyllis Schafly, the Contract with America, the Heritage Foundation, the Moral Majority, and the National Rifle Association." It was approved. The standards do not include a progressive counterpart clause for the same period."
