It is worse than that Frank, it is an in crowd that routinely resorts to bullying in the attempt to limit conversation, in what to all appearances is the attempt to drive out un approved voices and ideas. Then they have the audacity to blame those fighting to have a voice for both the war and for the alleged death of A2K.
This speaks to a huge problem that we have in this nation, pretty much the biggest reason why we cant get any of our problems solved.....far to many people think that they absolutely must run an extensive quiz on all people they dont know confirming their positions on major issues before they can be invited to sit down for a conversation over a lemonaid. We refuse to make even minimal effort to bridge gaps in ideas, it is " agree with me or go die ************!"
We used to be better.
