    Talk Radio - say anything to get bigger ratings from an audience who don't think too much regardless of their political fascination or fear.

    LOL..."Rich Lowry" hee hee hee...

    I'd guess you could count the times he and Limbaugh have ever been right (pardon the pun) about anything on one hand.

    Denial Chapter 1: In many cases, they're one and the same.

    Seriously, you stop listening to folks like this, your own odds of being right increase by a factor of....well let's just say they start moving above zero.

    But hey, I was sincere in my comment in the other thread--you keep doing what you're doing. I'm liking the results of your predictions so far.

    How about you?

    What values here don't align with those of your own and please explain why?

    placing ideas and principles above personal desire, weaknesses, fears and regrets

    a never-ending quest for the truth, despite obstacles based on emotion and personal experience, and spreading such truths for the benefit of all

    recognizing and utilizing the benefits of competition and hard work

    emphasizing charity, with its unexpected benefits, rather than compulsory tax-and-spend programs

    teaching self-help rather than dependence on government and others

    a devotion to the principle of justice

    supporting self-defense

    frugality and efficiency

    giving those in authority due respect, but not to the point of accepting orders or assertions that are contrary to logic or morality

    downplaying significance of wealth, disparities in wealth, and materialism in general

    emphasizing self-reliance and being able to keep the fruits of one's labor

    not complaining, and instead taking practical action to improve one's situation

    emphasizing self-restraint against hurtful activities

    emphasizing humility and open-mindedness instead of arrogant certainty about one's own views

    recognizing the power of the free market

    understanding that a rising tide lifts all boats, e.g. tax cuts benefit all.

    self-control as opposed to a self-indulgent search for instant gratification of desires.

    recognizing that evil does exist in the world, and making an effort to combat this force by whatever means necessary

    respecting the sanctity of life

    A most curious list of purported values, given surveys of Red States vs. Blue States and their relative intake/reliance on Federal Assistance dollars, compared to revenue contributed.

    But I'm sure you're an exception to the evident rule.

    I realize your question was not directed at me but assuming you'll grant me the liberty of free speech and plagiarism, then:

    Can the Talk Radio-fueled Conservative Movement be said to place ideas above fears and to seek truth despite obstacles based on emotion and personal experience when they broadcast things such as these?


    1. That Barack Obama is a Muslim Socialist that wants to destroy our country.

    2. That the recession was caused by government spending and, therefore, could be fixed with massive cuts in spending.

    3. That Obamacare is socialized medicine and that Republicans didn't support an individual mandate for the past two decades (see Heritage Foundation circa 1993).

    4. That conserving the earth through clean energy policies is not conservative.

    5. That it is possible to balance the budget by increasing Defense spending, cutting taxes for the richest, and making significant non-mandatory spending cuts.

    6. That erecting deadly, electrified, 20-foot border fence will stop illegal immigrants from entering the country.

    7. That Obama is a hapless imposter dependent on a teleprompter and that the way to beat him is to send a nominee that appeals to a narrow and declining portion of the American public.

    8. That the media, liberals, Muslims, the establishment, intellectuals, immigrants and other assorted bogeymen are conspiring to destroy white working class and Born Again Christian culture.

    9. Big government is bad except when imposing its will on a woman's healthcare decisions.

    In the context or your post, all of them. But this one stands out more than others:

    It's not conservative. When you force the market to comply through taxation and unrealistic mandates, it drives up the cost of "green" entities such that they're not worth the investment. It's nice that Obama wants the average fuel mileage to be 54.5mpg by 2023, but don't expect those vehicles to be reasonably priced. This administration wants to use those gawdy GE windmills when they could be using more efficient vertical windmills that have a fraction of the footprint. It's not about what is sensible but rather who lobbied the best.

    I never implied that using up the planet's resources is the best course, and your straw man argument is pathetic. If you haven't noticed, the natural progression of the market helps resource conservation. If a resource becomes more scarce, it rises in price, and people use less of it. The fact of the matter is that you can't expect the typical family to pay $40 000 for a fuel-efficient sedan in 2023 simply because the government wants to force a fuel efficiency standard that can only be met by using high-priced materials and technologies.

    Meet the Geo Metro. 50+ mpg in 1990. Fuel efficiency has as much to do with horsepower as with materials and technology.
