“your redundancy is just a reflection on how ignorant you are on the subject. You really need to understand, if it that good for the democrats, it will also be good for the republicans. Same plan! However, the difference is, the republicans do not share your optimism and hate being lied to. Something the Democrats seem to accept easily.”
“Here in Utah, an elementary school educator is simply not able to hold back ANY student. It doesn't matter if he/she did NOTHING all year. In fact, it's gotten so that the teacher is afraid to report non-passing grades because of the administration's fear and subsequent push-back.”
“Incredibly enough, I have spoken with gay Republicans, thus I don’t doubt that I could find a believer in the resurrection, sky-God mythos who is not racist and sexist. Humans have the incredible ability to compartmentalize “logic problems” so as to protect larger belief systems.
But our need as a species to abandon childish myths is becoming quite acute. The billboards, and an extensive PR campaign borrowing much from anti-cigarette smoking campaigns, needs to continue.”
“Ignorance is fine. There's nothing "wrong" with ignorance. Willful ignorance, or refusing the truth based on sky-god morals or an extraordinarily successful business model based on silly boogey-men... The Dude can not abide these.”

“You are the perfect example of what I was referring to. Some people need to be saved from themselves. Thanks the response.”
“"Who would have thought five years ago, after we witnessed firsthand the dangers of an overly concentrated financial system, that the 'too big to fail' problem would only have gotten worse?"
Every crises is used to further concentrate wealth/power. That's the name of game. Is she outright lying or is she that naive - I'm afraid of both answers.”

“I'm pretty sure her question is purely rhetorical. It was used to publicize a frightening development and catch people's attention I'm pretty sure she shares your view about the shameful concentration of wealth and power in this country. As do I.”
