    I disagree. I listen to AM talk and FM talk, and I find the hosts and the callers on both to be obnoxious parrots.

    While both AM con and FM lib talk tends to make me scream at the stupidity (I guess I'm just smarter than everyone else) the conservative talk does tend to have more actual fact conveyed in the speech from the hosts.

    It's really hard to declare a winner in talk though. If I were for example to compare Rush Limbaugh to Amy Goodman I end up wanting to take a baseball bat to both of them. They both start off with facts, and then get to the maybes, and then the could happens, and then form their position based on the assumption that the could happen actually did happen. Even so, of the two Amy Goodman has the least potential for redemption. At least Limbaugh has a sense of humor.

    And Boyscouts of America won't accept me because I'm an atheist. Doesn't mean I tell them to go to hell whenever I see them.

    It's a thing called having class. Which you do not.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Does your particular political stance on homosexuality color every opinion of your life? Do you funnel every thought and attitude through that prism? If so, I feel bad for you. And yet I always see complaints voiced by liberals, that it's conservatives who are "obsessed" with sexual issues.

    I'm sorry that the Salvation Army doesn't meet that "one" special piece of criteria that in your biased eyes make them worthy. However, most reasonable people agree they are an organization that does enormous good for members of society. They were one of the first organizations during Katrina providing assistance, and I can feel relatively assured that they didn't ask for proof of one's sexual orientation before providing help.

    So although your actions might get you some kind of hero status on the du, here it doesn't amount to much. Perhaps you should redirect your prissy anger to where it could accomplish more good.

    Sorry.I'm sure you did that, but like alot of things, that's a dick move. It's like kicking a small child or shooting a tame caribou.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.
