in thread Boycott O'Reilly

Wassercrats, while I won't seriously tear into you (as so many others have) for expressing your views, I do disagree with you. What I will tear into you about is your use of "God bless America" and "I bet <The US Government> would be on my side" in an attempt to get others to back you. Statements like that are just lame grabs at approval from the nearly brain-dead. It's the equivalent of a four year-old child saying, "unh-huh" when somebody disagrees with the child. Attempting to use our government's (or any government for that matter) view as justification for an intellectual argument is akin to using Wyle E. Coyote to justify something regarding physics.

If you want to make an argument pro or con, then do it, but use credible, non-biased sources! And while we're at it, don't bring anybody's god(s) into a justification. It just shows poor taste and automatically degrades any argument you might make.

    We both know that the monks who've posted to this thread and -- me just did that as an intellectual exercise. Don't pretend I'm trying to win support that I already have. Previous posts by other monks are just parodys of bad arguments.

    Don't care for God Bless America? How about America the Beautiful?

    Go eat an american cheese sandwich. That will bring you around.
