State of the Discussion

bob
+ I dunno, I think a lot of people looked at the TPers not as patriotic Americans but as bat shit crazy. Their difficulty in [. . .]
CK MacLeod
+ They will still have to cope with a version of the same conflict at every stage and level. Sooner or later, or constantly, any political [. . .]
bob
+ Sure, that's a fair characterization of the discussion outlined in the tweets. My point is that the information we have about "the left" is [. . .]
CK MacLeod
+ That's all interesting and relevant, and good point at the end about the fights within the fights. However, I see the discussion as taking place [. . .]
bob
+ Your last comment is the most useful of the thread. If we're talking about the left's tactics, I think we need to go back as least [. . .]
CK MacLeod

OK, re-enabled, but subtle-like. Will fancy it up later.

CK MacLeod

CK MacLeod

And I'm not expecting THIS to be the final format...

CK MacLeod

Still working out some bugs with the whole "suite," as perhaps you may already have noticed.

CK MacLeod
+ Not really sure - would depend upon what you checked or didn't and when, and how you logged in, and also whether the emails are [. . .]
bob
+ sure no problem. btw I did subscribe to this but haven't gotten any notices for new comments. do I need to check new replies [. . .]
CK MacLeod

Pork Up Gov't Down
+ Of course not. Nancy Pelosi said it all: "we're capitalists, that's just how it is". That's why all they have to run on is At Least [. . .]
CK MacLeod

(thanks for this discussion - also gives me a nice at hand basis for implementing the discussion "snake" at this site... in a bit)

CK MacLeod
+ Also: Undoubtedly there is a temperamental courage, a warlike blood, which loves a fight, does not feel itself except in a quarrel, as one sees in [. . .]
bob
+ Yeah, courage is perhaps a particularly fraught virtue. Emerson asserts that one must have "practical power" to have courage, so one unaccustomed to giving [. . .]
Pork Up Gov't Down
+ They wouldn't have to go down this road if they would lean on emphasis of organizing labor regardless of time of arrival. Open the borders [. . .]
CK MacLeod
+ OK - I think I've got you now, and can see your argument. I'm unsure about it. If problem or possible problem didn't occur to me [. . .]
bob
+ Just so. That's my point - he didn't seem to mean precisely "tragic", but only as you say "profoundly bad outcome." My poorly [. . .]
CK MacLeod
+ Well, I guess we disagree then about what Walt seems to be trying to say. I'm not aware of any point where he ever has [. . .]
bob
+ Certainly there is many who voted for that fellow will meet a tragic impasse - enabling the outcome they sought to avoid. But it [. . .]
