The haters think but calling people names it dulls their pain. Their pain of self hate and drepression brought on by their believe in a negative ideology.

I had a slight taste of that myself this week.

What vakue would the blog have to you without a comments section? How would you know anyone was listening?

Needless to say, though, I take issue with the person you quote. As if "righties" treat "lefties" as THEIR intellectual equals or superiors. Yeah, I'm always warmed by the respect with which Ann Coulter treats people who disagree with her.

Argh. Typos. I should have proofread that.

"The haters think by calling people names it'll dull their pain. Their pain of self hate and drepression brought on by their belief in a negative ideology."

Leftism is largely based on angry emotions and that comes largely from depression. The left wing elites feed that negative reinforcement. It has become a cult of self hate kind of like the Palestianian jihadists are trapped in a death cult.

There's always e-mail. Works for me. Never had a comments section since I started in 2002.

James---Thanks for proving my point about the level of intellectual respect that the left gets from the right. :)

I don't believe I've ever gone onto someone else's site and made a confrontational comment. If I think the person is full of baloney, I'll just move on and likely not ever return.

Life is too short to be going onto people's sites to pick a fight.

I only wish I had the courage to write about some of the stuff you've written about. I know that my skin isn't thick enough to handle the kinds of comments you receive...I would have shut down the section long ago. Thanks for being gutsy and putting it out there!
