We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's the drumbeat of the left. It is political, philosophical, theological, and social. It pervades every activity. It is post-structural, post-modern, post-everything in the parlance of the day. It is tolerant, diverse, non-judgmental, non-discriminatory, egalitarian, politically correct, multicultural, globalist, and collectivist. It insists that there are no rights and wrongs, no moral absolutes. It turns everything upside down in its looking glass world. It denies the correctness of all that produced what our culture revered before the deconstruction of the world in accordance with the tenets of cultural Marxism.
It denies God, human exceptionalism, and the soul. We are reduced to Darwinian animals floundering in an amoral sea of meaninglessness. It is a product of the nihilistic, existentialist philosophical movement, which went hand in hand with modern art, atonal music, scientific materialism and modern physics, and the generally discordant nature of the twentieth century.
Read the whole thing (link above). Fortunately, conservatives are too busy with work, family, volunteering, going to church, and having fun, to keep their drums beating this way.
All I can say is thank God for The Drudge Report and Fox News. Hannity & Colmes is as close as any segment of the media gets to debating both sides of the issues, night in, night out. Drudge seems to be an equal opportunity messenger of bad news but knowing the particularly weak hand the other side is playing, they always come off looking worse than the good guys.
I have heard that H&C's ratings are growing rapidly and I am sure that they are a big part of the reason why Fox News attracts a fairly evenly divided audience, another piece of evidence that Fox News is actually who they say they are, i.e., "fair and balanced".
And by examining all sides in such open forums, the weakness of the left liberal/Marxist/Socialist side can be exposed. So when the McCain-Palin ticket is denied access to Oprah, or the Iran Truth Rally at the U.N., or Gov Palin is irrationally attacked day in, day out by the same MSM, we can all take some comfort in knowing that we are winning while being careful never to prematurely declare victory.
