On politics

I grow weary of all the posting by many shouting extremist inflammatory political rantings that are neither researched, verifiable, present no historic precedent/details, fail to cite sources, nor deal with quantifiable fact. And then all their enraged chums add on equally sophomoric points of irrelevancy, hearsay, conjecture, party prejudice, and other non sequitur arguments as well. Nobody wins.

Debate over political ideology should not be about shouting obscenities, and being entrenched in blindness and closed mindedness but in persuading others of the wisdom of your view by presenting facts that lead to a conclusion that sway the opposing side, or not. Either way, it’s supposed to be a gentleman’s game, let us use our intelligence a bit, and leave behind the grammar school sandbox rules.
