TRRW just believes what he wants to believe, and anything that runs counter to that is ignorant. He's the ebony to the republican's ivory.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
And now for a musical interlude
A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.

Birthdays was the worst days now we sip champagne when we thirstay.
I realize I'm putting this here for you to read... but please, don't talk about it.
Maybe WMH can organize an si poor people meet & greet event. Possibly a happy hour.
What I've also learned from my kids' generation is that the avoidance of talking about race creates a bigger chasm than I ever imagined. They are able to discuss their differences without being labeled a racist. That's a great world to live in, but I'm not sure many of us, myself included, can "unlearn" the experiences that got us to this point.
I was raised lower middle class. I thought I was rich until I went to high school and met real rich people, then worked in Grosse Pointe and met really rich people. And when I observed poor people while painting houses and cutting grass in parts of downtown Detroit, I thought I was rich again. The word poor gets thrown around as casually as the word great is applied to athletes.
And in regards to the bolded part above, I am well aware of what exists less than 10 miles from me, and as such choose not to put myself in situations that bring me into an environment rife with desperate people. Chance, hard-work, accident of birth, call it what you like, but just because some of us live comfortably and don't venture outside the comfort zones we're living in doesn't mean we are uneducated as to what type of climate lower economic environments can create.
And sure, TRRW can call someone a bigot without himself being a bigot, but it's a little tiresome that anytime someone's take doesn't dovetail with his, the reply is usually a face-melting retort that would make an evangelist envious. I think there's a lot of worthwhile things to be learned on this board, but oftentimes the rhetoric makes my brain throb.

huh. now all we need is a north/south of 8-mile fight and this thread will have everything.
