Note that no shit has been stirred up about my inclusion ( by link ) about he who has not been named.
It is extraordinarily difficult, but I bet you have the power to tell if my post that followed yours was serious or tongue in cheek.
I aim to please!
Anyway, lest people read politics into my criticism; I'm saying that as a STATEMENT his is one of the laziest, least reflective, and unenlightened posts I've read in a long time. Maybe it didn't come out right, maybe it was posted while doing ten other things... but it's the best short condensation of everything I find wrong with CE, media debates, and virtually everything else I can think of.
Simplistic binary oppositions not conducive to the real world fitting an abjectly biased "hero/villan" narrative, supported by examples that have nothing to do with one another except that they sound nice for that narrative. Funny that it would be posted on the Trayvon thread, which had that problem from the START. It's all come home to roost, after 1500 posts.
