I might say the same to you by omitting "by quoting platitudes". Friend.
Especially when "less" is "moore".
Since we're talking about Moore and his knee-jerk idiocy and unfettered relationship to reality and truth, it would be beneficial to recall the magnitude of his idiocy regarding Clinton's obscenity in Kosovo. At least he's consistent, if just a consistently addle-brained marxist coward... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 9:42 AM on June 24, 2004
It's just flabbergasting that anybody with such a deplorable Senate record and a public history of outright anti-American bile, lies, and fabrication would ever consider running for president in his wildest dreams. And he's a traitorous ratfink pinko to boot:

When the devilishly cruel evildoer is finally caught, he should be forced to actually read Ulysses, and then Finnegan's Wake, while listening to Mason & Dixon on tape. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 12:46 PM on June 16, 2004
But I couldn't get through 25 pages of Mason & Dixon.

Is it not accurate to make the observation that the Orient is ridiculously crowded without tossing "racism" around?
I sentence you to a Seoul subway rush-hour (both ways) commute for one week as penance, where you will be sardined, kneaded, and forcibly compressed in a writhing mass of miserable commuters, unable to do anything but sweat profusely, gasp vainly for oxygen, and watch hopelessly as the...

It's one thing to complain about crowded trains, quite another to spew about "the Orient where the individual counts for little and only the Leader is important."
Would it be "racist" if the author had substituted "orient" for "North Korea"? How about "America"? I'm just not buying the race angle. "Oriental" is not a race. But just ask a Korean if he thinks his race is the same as a... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 4:00 PM on June 13, 2004
Nothing "is" a race; race is scientifically a vacuous concept.
I disagree wholeheartedly, but by your reasoning how in the ever loving name of all that is holy can you call the statement made above "racist"??

That's the long way of saying "race does not exist". But fortunately, as I have said before, at a glance, I can tell the difference between a mallard and a pintail, even though genetically they might be almost indistinguishable. And even as members of the bird species, they're not chickens either. Neither sex nor race are "social constructs".

And it turns out that they're false. They just are.
Simple as that, eh? It couldn't be coincidentally related to the fundamentalist fervor and pervasiveness of postmodern theory and relativist proselytizing, could it? I vehemently disagree with such "deconstructive" theories because they rely solely on the validity of the position that the exception disproves the rule, and are virulently predisposed toward nihilist abandonment or...

You can keep repeating that until doomsday, but that doesn't make it true. Hitler was a left-wing anti-christian, anti-capitalist socialist. Sound familiar? Ever heard of "National Socialism"? Look into it.

Thanks for a great article, tharlan. It's great to read such economic optimism. I wonder about the effects of overpopulation in a passage like this:
"In this very minute, a child is being born to an American family and another child, equally valued by God, is being born to a family in India. The resources of all kinds that will be at the disposal of this new American will be on the order of 15 times the resources available to his Indian brother....

I presume that the author, as well as many who enjoyed this article, are scared shitless by Savage, not because of what he says, per se, but because he's convincing (his listeners) and has a strong following.
He has listeners, a lot of listeners, and he has ratings which means he sells products. Plus he's funny, educated, outrageous, informative and speaks his mind. But mostly its the ratings.

why do convicted felons even lose the right to vote?
Because they are convicted felons. They have forfeited their right to decide on social matters in a free society by disregarding society's laws. They have free will to break the law, and they bear personal responsibility for the consequences.

Aside from the hysterical sanctimonious elation, is there a reliable way to ascertain whether "same-sex" couples are actually homosexual, because that does not seem to be a prerequisite for "marriage", only that the couples are of the same sex.
Certainly two heterosexual friends could "marry" under the current guidelines, because there is no mandatory test for homosexuality, and if there were what would it be? A demonstration of sexual... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 5:03 PM on May 18, 2004
