I have friends that are right leaning, and, they are all reasonably intelligent, well spoken individuals. I disagree with their politics, but I can usually have a balanced and sensical discussion with them.

This, however, and when I say "this" I of course do not just mean this thread, but this thread specifically is a tough pill to swallow, be it meant seriously, tongue in cheek or somewhere in-between. And the follow up replies always run the gamut from laughable to incredibly disrespectful.

Worth ignoring, basically, as I usually do, so, why I'm in here now I do not know.

Dr. Rossiter's very illuminating and insightful book answers questions that many of us have asked about the essentially childlike behavior of liberals - for instance, their temper tantrums, sense of entitlement, intolerance, and grandiosity. While listing any number of liberals' infantile expectations - from a powerful parental government to a guarantee of material security from the state to laws that punish the "haves" for their excesses and compensate the "have-nots" for their pangs of envy to an international caring agenda that understands everyone's hardships and tolerates destructive actions by others, the list goes on - Rossiter concludes that, "these and other goals dear to the modern liberal heart are remarkable for the childhood needs they address and the adult needs they ignore." This is an important resource for those seeking to understand what makes the liberals among us tick. Joan Swirsky, NY-based journalist and author.


Sadly, you probably believe that this is what 'peer-reviewed' means.

No, I don't in actuality.

Don't forget higher education and affirmative action...

No, because there is a woman, homosexual, or a brown person waiting to steal as much of mine as they can... I have to hold on to as much as I can.

It looks self-published (you try to find Free World Books, LLC anywhere other than in conjunction with this book). Hell even the conservatives didn't want to be associated with this book!

i'm not quite sure to say.
but i'm somewhat certain that diamond is taking the piss...
maybe the author or the book is too.

liberalism is a mental disorder?

it's not surprising i guess. you can create science to back anything. everyone knows nazis were even able "prove" jews were evil through various experiments, including head/nose measurements.

at any rate, while i value freedom of speech, as hard as it is to stomach sometimes, i think i should also be free to say that people who hold these opinions should be physically punished.

yes, that's right.

they should be allowed to publish their bullshit... but i should be allowed to do what i please with them as well.

that's freedom, guys.
