    1. They are hypocrites. They will rant and rave about how criminal the previous administration was but how many tax cheats do they have helping running the show.

    2. They are arrogant. The have now  a "we won, you lost" attitude and usually come across very pompus in conversation.


    3. They want America to be a Socialist / Communist nation under Obama. They don't care that America's greatness came because it was a Capitalist country.

    4. They believe that government should take care of everyone and everything. Therefore, killing any incentive for a person in America to grow wealth and become successful without government coming in and punishing them for being successful and wealthy.

    5. They don't answer questions posed to them. They tend to scurry around the answer and become longwinded about something not relevant to the question asked of them. In short, the disregard the question and that is downright rude.

    6. They can't do simple math. Just how does throwing trillions of taxpayer dollars at the economy reduce the debt and not put future generations under heavy financial tax burden?

    7. They want to weaken our national defense. No harsh interrogations of terrorists, cut military spending, and end projects like Star Wars missile defense system. Boy, I feel safer already.

    8. The ending of journalism in America as we know it. This past election proved that with them not investigating Obama and his flaws and weaknesses. Yet, Sarah Palin comes into the picture and the left sends a small team to dig up any tidbit of dirt on her. It was SHAMEFUL.

    If you want this post to be meaningful, please define your terms: What is "far left" in your estimation.  Please give names of "far lefties".   And if you put Obama on the list you will lose your credibility unless you think his 60% approval rating represents those of the "far left".  Maybe he is "near left"...

    That people on the left need you to define what "far Left" is. They have NO problem knowing what the "far Right" is but when it comes to the Left all of a sudden they play Mickey the Dunce.

    Sorry, I don't use the term "far right" except to categorize people like David Duke and his ilk who are generally not in office.  But why do you avoid the issue (that you folks created)?  People will give a list of beliefs the "Far Left" has, but you are unable to test this by naming names?  Seems like you prefer your ideas served without a factual foundation.  Now who is Mickey the Dunce?

    And I see myself as a centrist: the only political party I ever belonged to was the G.O.P. (even worked briefly with Andy Card), but I prefer my independence. Label folks like me as out of touch "lefties" and the G.O.P. will never return to prominence.

    Re: Let's try this again. What about the far left annoys you the most?

    What annoys me most about the far left is their tendency to devolve into hysterics regarding certain hot-button issues.  Naturally, the far right does the same thing, often over the same issues, but the far left tends to be bit more shrill when provoked.  They also are quicker to turn on their own kind for any perceived transgression.

    Prez the other night commented on this viz. the abortion question.  He said that ardent pro-choicers try to remove morality and faith from the debate.  It can't be done, hence the controversy.  The opposite canard on the far right is to make morality the issue itself, a classic fallacy and logical misstep.

    As I've often said, extremes in any area of thought are generally not good and lead to poor results.  This is why the vast majority of Americans are moderates.

    Where do we begin???  How about the fundamental idea that the government can take care of us better than we can take care of ourselves???

    After that.  I despise:

    Wealth redistribution, high taxes, out of control spending,  Affirmative action (better known as institutional racism).  Gun bans.  Holiday trees.  Their wars on Halloween, Easter, Christmas, Christianity, food, soda, guns, SUV's, plastic bags, the responsible tax payers, white men, coporations, deoderant, the English language, the American Flag, the military, the CIA, the Constitution, marriage, freedom of speech, States Rights, their wimpy attitude towards crime and our enemies, their beards, their Volvos and Subarus, Cambridge, Berkenstocks, their social welfare, their idea that we are not a soverign nation, their love for the United Nations and international law over our own, their constant need to be a victim, their love of illegal immigrants, Keith Olberman, Arlen Specter, their love for late term abortions of viable babies, their disdain for our military and their love of tofu.  Really, go have a steak you freaks!!!!

    Goober....

    Now you have a new homework assignment - research, "straw man fallacy".  The 'rules' of logic aren't some newfangled liberal fad.... they have developed for a reason.  You might want to give them their due.

    If you want people to take you seriously, you have to get specific.

    You can't just default to some archetypal bogeyman named "Liberal", and list it's traits in some officious Eight Point Manifesto.  

    You have to anchor it in reality. 

    Which means specifics. 
    Evidence. 
    Data. 

    ACTUAL persons, and their ACTUAL deeds..... not your idiosyncratic distillation of a nebulous "them".

    You are literally arguing with a product of your own mind - a distillation of personal impressions.  You have entered and become lost in the land of dragons and shadows.....

    Come back to us, goober!  Pin a tale on a donkey, and we can play the game right......




    make mother proud.....make her love you like you wish she would......
