Inaccurately named 'feminism' is a vile, failing, malignant, marxist, lie.
Before claiming "solidarity" to such pernicious, intentional malevolence, reconsideration might be in order.
"Contemporary (or second wave) feminism has aptly been described as "Marxism without economics," since feminists replace class with gender as the key social construct. Of course, what society constructs can be deconstructed. This... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 2:16 PM on March 31, 2004
You can read this, a tangentially related fourth option which directly addresses virulent anti-Western politically "correct" exercises in fatuity. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 3:20 PM on March 28, 2004
Every year, 42,000 people die in accidents on America's roads - an average of 315 deaths a day. Who would argue that such tragic carnage is unsustainable and that the U.S. must quickly find an alternative to the automobile? posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 6:53 AM on March 21, 2004
Can you or Cliff say this of Iraq?--why is Iraq suddenly our Pearl Harbor when in fact what Kerry said was that 9/11 was our Pearl Harbor?
It could be because the Hussein regime supported, financed, and harbored terrorists, as was evident in the training camps in Salman Pak, mentioned by May, also evident in the capture of al-Quaeda scumbags in Iraq. Hussein was also in flagrant violation of every promise he made after the first Gulf War, and was... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 8:53 AM on March 21, 2004

Since the US supported and financed corrupt regimes from South America to Africa to the middle east, does this mean we get to invade the US?
Who's "we"? This kind of nonsense gets patty-caked around a lot on websites like Mother effing Jones, but in real life it's a lot like the American Democratic Party trying to decide which corrupt presidential candidate to support and finance until he loses spectacularly. It's a matter of choosing the... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 11:08 AM on March 21, 2004
Those who are unwilling to accept a government that clearly does not have the interests of any but its richest citizens in mind, those who are uncomfortable with an administration that has raised the level of fear and hatred around the world directed towards America and its people to unprecedented levels.
Speaking of "nonsense buzzwords", every single bit of Bush's domestic spending flights of fancy has been nothing more than mainstream... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 6:09 AM on March 13, 2004
Does a pro-life liberal exist? This is not even an issue that should concern politicians.

if we take your positions to be the "conservative" ones, then we can make some progress toward demolishing any sense that there is such a thing as a "conservative" - or its putative opposite, "liberal".
I appreciate your taking the time to respond so thoroughly, skoosh, and though I'm not sure we can ever transmogrify a single position into a political point of view, I'll do my best to respond. Let me add that my... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 2:42 PM on March 13, 2004

Right, MattD. You've outlined what I think is obviously a majority outlook. Even those disappointed with Bush's fatuous domestic spending still support him on the things he's done right, namely; tax cuts and the war on terror.
Kerry doesn't really have any real supporters, just some people who want "anybody but Bush". Not too convincing. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 2:42 PM on March 8, 2004
On preview, hama7, you couldn't be more wrong, unless you'd like to prove your stance about Kerry supporters.
Google is amazing.
I doubt this is a majority position of the kind that say the economy and jobs might be.
The economy is fine, and it's not the government's responsibility to create jobs, so let's leave that to businesses.

Dammit, guys, would you let hama7 stew in the subtleties of his own misquote before you point out the blatant error of his assertion?
What assertion? That Democrats like Kerry will rescind Bush tax cuts in order to finance more idiotic spending? No, That's true.
In case you did not get my drift here, or don't understand the meaning of "fatuous", you might realize that I condemn Bush as well for acting... [more] posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 5:54 PM on March 8, 2004
"But Jackson reiterated his support for the heterosexual definition of marriage, saying, "In my culture, marriage is a man-woman relationship."
Since Jackson's "culture" is American, he can probably find a vast majority of people who agree with him, if solely and exclusively on this single issue. posted to MetaFilter by hama7at 1:02 PM on March 5, 2004
Well, Clinton deserves at least a firm talking-to about Rwanda, or does he get a pass because of the color of his skin? No, really.
