The RNC reciter wrote: Still waiting for one of your Dems to address the stats I posted yesterday about your president. Got anything besides the silly name-calling?

SCVIndy: Interestingly enough, this statement is a ‘focus group tested’ slogan that is used by many conservatives at the sites I debate them.

They will state their opinions and when confronted with reality, keep asserting that you haven’t answered their question or in this case, rebuked their assertions. In other words, they just ‘IGNORE’ you.

But it’s good to keep in mind that this strategy is effective to ideology followers since without really defending an assertion with facts, it’s just ‘assumed’ that the reiteration of a recital is ‘all the proof required’!

This Blog’s Song: I'd Love To Change The World by Ten Years After

“I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do . . . “

(Thom likes to use music intros on his show so I’m going to pick up on the habit and use them to end my post. In any event, the song is just something I listen to and I’ll try to pick them that have a ‘message’. They most likely won’t have anything per se to do with the post they are attached to . . . )

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
