@Setanta,
I won't acknowledge it because it's not true.

Aside from 2nd amendment rights there's nothing you could accuse me of supporting that Republican's support (and that Democrats oppose).

@maporsche,
I'm not accusing you of anything. Apparently, we are to see you as some noble centrist, who partakes of the low partisan prejudices of neither of the polar groups. Pardon me . . . i'm going to go off somewhere to be discretely ill . . .

@Setanta,
Why be discreet about it now. I've been reading your verbal spewage all day.

You accused me of being a right-winger, and you were wrong, at least admit that.

@maporsche,
You laid a charge, essentially, of hypocricy against those "on the left on this board." You did not make any such charge against those on the right. Therefore, it is perfectly reasonable to see a partisan motive on your part. I see no reason to retreat from that position, or to retract it. You have provided no evidence for your claims, but i don't see you admitting that.

@Setanta,
I'll admit that I provided no evidence. I didn't think that admission was required as you so effectively pointed it (that I provided zero evidence) out, and I didn't refute your point. If you're ego requires some admission by me, then by all means, allow me to stroke your ego.

You should retract it because it's wrong, and a brief review of my posts would show you that. My ego doesn't require your admission, I know what my beliefs are, but if you value the truth then you should at least be honest here.

@maporsche,
far be it for me to guess your beliefs but I have generally read your posts and find them ambiguous but right leaning in general.

@dyslexia,
I guess that my support of the following:

Stem cell research
Separation of Church/State
Gay marriage
Fiscal Responsibility
Nationalized Healthcare
Energy Independence
Environmental protection legislation
Open, honest, government
Raising taxes
Increasing corporate accountability
Ending the war in Iraq
Reducing our military budget

among others issues, would lead you to believe that I'm right leaning.

Again, besides the 2nd amendment, I agree with most of the democratic policies, and a quick review of my posts (where I've commented on each of these issues) would prove that, if one were so inclined.

If my beliefs are still in question, pick an issue and I'll give you my opinion.

@maporsche,
It has nothing to do with my ego, smart ass. You demanded that i retract a statement that you are right-wing, you demanded that i admit that i am wrong. I was simply treating you to a serving of the same dish, insisting that you admit that you had provided no evidence for your claim.

Since you have harped on it so continuously, it appears that your ego demands a retraction from me. So i will admit that although your remarks made you appear to be right-wing, it is possible that you are not.

*********************************************************************

Of course, you know, Ravenspeak, that Barack Obama was one of Blagojevich's most fervent backers in the Black Community on Chicago's South side just before Blagojevich was elected. Of course, the left wingers will say that BO knew NOTHING, NOTHING, about the fact that Blagojevich was dirty. How ridiculous. The most brilliant man ever elected to the Presidency--Barack Obama--did not know that Blagojevich was corrupt???
Obama had access to all the major players in Illinois politics and he didn't know that Blagojevich was corrupt??
