  •  I know your record (0+ / 0-)

    in forum of Daily Kos,

    and how you like to use my "Framing Rants"

    as a platform for your own scholarly diatribes.


    Seriously coffeetalk,

    I think many would benefit, if you took up that "education chore" here, under your own pseudonym.

    I'd read them.  Probably recommend some of them too, in that context.
    One that is not constantly "correcting" my rhetorical framing intent.

    •  Your misstatements of the Constitution are (5+ / 0-)

      counterproductive.  This is supposed to be a reality based site.  I do not think it is reality based to make arguments about what the Constitution does, or does not, provide that are provably incorrect.  I think you do a disservice to the community by promoting these notions that are provably incorrect.  Things like that have a way of becoming "truths" around here with some posters if they are left alone.  It is destructive to the political discourse if people begin any discussion based a false premise like some of the notions in this diary.

      You cannot expect to be able to post diaries about the Constitution that are provably incorrect (like the absurd notion that the Copyright and Patents clause authorizes Congress to control education) and then get offended when someone points out, while providing links to  authority, that you are wrong.

      Rants are one thing, but posting clearly debunked nonsense is quite another. Coffeetalk is taking the time to educate you about how the Constitution really works.

      Maybe the actual workings of the Constitution aren't popular and maybe posting inaccurate rants is a better way to get to the rec list.

      But you might listen to what she is saying and internalize it, because it will help you in the long run in achieving whatever your goals are.
