Is there no more honest political debate to be had?

The lines are drawn in the MSM and now the Blogs as well.  I can’t seem to find anyone who wants an open discussion without trying to bastardize your opinion in 10 words or less.  Where did the honest political debate go?  You know the ones you used to have with your friends over 6-12 beers at the bar.  The heated disagreements on God, love, sports, politics, abortion, nukes, recycling, base kickers in car trunks, chicks, guns, coeds, coworkers and so on.  No matter what everyone got to share freely and hurt feelings were mollified by your buying the next round.   “Agree with me or your just f##king wrong!” appears to be the only discourse of the day.  Now only arguments and shoutdowns abound.   I don’t hide my right leaning stance, but I can be reasoned with.    Honest I can.  Just ask my friends who SWEAR I really a Libertarian but just wont admit it.  They’re liars and don’t listen to them by the way.   Where was I?  Oh yeah.  Political discussion on most blogs and news programs has reached the “Why the hell even try to talk about it?” point.  With that in mind I’m now giving fair warning that you will be seeing allot more:  hot chicks, guns, football and zombies for a short while on my site.  At least until some real political news starts cropping up in relation to the Nov elections.

Sooooooooooooooo now I give you one of the top 5 songs of all time:  Rush – Tom Sawyer

If you don’t think it’s one of the top 5 songs of all time then your just f##king wrong!

    Well there’s your freakin’ problem.

    You’re listening to Rush, and now your expectations on discourse are far more polite than they have previously been.

    You’ve let yourself be contaminated by Canadianisms.

    Next thing you know, you’ll be spelling words like honour and colour correctly, and you _may_ develop a craving for poutine.

    And, holy fuck, it’s the start of NHL playoffs.

    Good luck.

    Regards,

    Imp;)

  2. What a poutine? Hell, now I’ll have to look it up.

  3. As for the NHL… well once the Red Wings are out I focus on the NFL.
