    My favorite is #3. That is why I keep asking Pred, Troy2000, and tlarkin for cites. Still waiting........:burnout:



    "The following are the basic principles upon which all public
    debate must be conducted if you wish to be a true ultra liberal, a
    progressive leftist, and politically correct:

    1. Leftists are free to call everyone else nasty names, but no one
    should be permitted to call leftists nasty names.

    2. For a leftist to call someone nasty names shows social concern and
    awareness. Someone calling a leftist a nasty name is immature and
    impolite and avoiding the issues.

    3. Leftists need never document their claims.

    4. Whenever a leftist is presented with documentation of facts that
    contradict the leftist's theology, the leftist must insist that no
    facts have been presented at all.

    5. No scientific sources that presents facts contradicting leftist
    theology are admissible.

    6. All arguments may be settled by telling a non-leftist that he
    reminds you of Rush Limbaugh.

    7. Never ever take an economics course.

    8. Never recognize the fact that every idea of Karl Marx's was
    debunked over 150 years ago. Never read any social science written
    since Marx. Never admit that you know that Marx was a racist and
    anti-Semite.

    9. Never visit the library.

    10. Never study statistics or public policy analysis.

    11. Insist that you truly believe 10% of humans are gay and that gay
    people are not abnormal.

    12. Always say ''people of color'' so everyone will know that you
    care.

    13. Be a recycle enthusiast.

    14. Pretend that you do not care about material things, but never
    sell your possessions, such as your VCR or cellular phone or condo.

    15. Never admit that life ever involves tradeoffs. After all, when
    there are tradeoffs it is harder to feel righteous.

    16. Always support proposals that make real problems of the world
    worse as long as they make you feel caring and righteous.

    17. Never admit that anything could be positive about the United
    States.

    18. Always insist that there are few world problems that could not be
    improved through the destruction of Israel.

    19. Always insist that you have no idea what political correctness is.

    20. Always use the female pronouns half the time or more. That way
    everyone will know you are egalitarian.

    21. Insist that you are more caring and compassionate than anyone
    else.

    22. Remember, you would rather that poor people in the Third World
    starve, rather than that they should embrace capitalism and live like
    you do.

    23. Other people must always be required to relinquish their material
    things so that you may feel idealistic.

    24. Your property is scared; other people's property is to be used for
    social engineering and doing good."

    I'm sure they will get over it, or put me on their ignore list.

    or someone might close the thread.

    How about we not start threads that will just start bickering?
