    silly pointless militarism.

    Now, we cheer that we're better at it than the Repugs are.

    What a bizarro world.

      I don't know doc2 well enough to say what his/her exact political leanings are, but there are a lot of conservatives on DKOS so I don't assume everyone is a progressive.

        ...conservative because "there are a lot conservatives on DKOS" seems a bit presumptous.

        It also seems simple minded, dividing DKOS into "conservatives" and "progressives".  The reality is that we cover a very broad range of political viewpoints ranging from center right to far left, and with every shade and nuance in between.  

        Personallly, I also think that is a strength for DKOS, even though it can make for some heated flamewars at times -- the ideological diversity here reduces the likelihood that we're going to sink into the sort of groupthink that seems to afflict a lot of tea-party type conservatives.

          I just know better than to assume every kossack is a progressive.
