Read this and think

Like it or not, this reflects what many Americans believe.

And though it's hard to find, there is some truth there somewhere.

The truth is really, really hard to find, then.
I still wonder how he can think that Bush tries too hard to please the Liberals...

What amazes me is that Thomas isn't a "freak" or a "weirdo." He is, in many ways, very representative of the typical citizen in many areas of the U.S. (primarily rural areas and inland states).

carey, just catching up on your archives and came across this post.

this guy is funny as shit. Quote - Their favorite line is "It isn't in the press so it can't be true." Actually, since they still control most of the press, not being in the press means nothing to the truth of a matter.

Probably the best reason I'm not a liberal dupe is that I didn't go to college.

Thomas complains about liberals use of anecdotal evidence and lying, yet he offers no more proof than "Professors suppressing conservative, or any other views but liberal views is so well-known it's a cliché. The stories of conservative students having to hide their views from professors AND other students to avoid being first given a low grade and second, being shunned at best, hurt at worst are rife all over the country". Then he goes on to use Hegel to support his argument when it is apparent that he is never read nor understood Hegel.

It is frightening that somehow college and educating oneself is seen as something bad, something not to aspire to. Anyway, whatever crack this guy is smoking is some scary stuff...
