It's the Absolutism

Fletcher: We get Josey Wales and it ends.

Captain Terrel: Doin' right ain't got no end.

Here is one reason I will have a hard time backing any candidate whose support base -- and funding stream -- includes prominently the so-called Netroots.

It's wrong to confront good people at their homes. It's absolutely the right thing to do to confront liars, cheats and fools that are fucking this country wherever and whenever you can find them.


In the end, between Bill O'Reilly and I, one of us is on the side of the angels... and I guess that's for each individual to decide.

All I know is that he is a truly awful human being and an incredibly effective propagandist. That's a dangerous combination, and I'm proud of my work.

I have seen just enough of Bill O'Reilly's show to know I have no interest in seeing more. He's an old-fashioned populist American blowhard -- a type as old in these hills as the mastodon.

But doubting that human-induced "global warming" is an absolute, unquestionable scientifically proven thing should not be a Mark of Cain and make the questioner the object of a crusade?

Home Depot has some explaining to do if it thinks Hannity is any better than O'Reilly. FOX, across the board, smears gays, blacks, attacks the environment, and more. Home Depot needs to dump the hate network now, across the board.

It doesn't take much of an imaginative leap to see that people who can react that way to -- well, anyone who disagrees with them, basically -- are not many steps removed in the political evolutionary tree from kommissars or Stasi officers.
