    Oh they get it. Those are the folks that have actually studied the fall of the Roman Empire. It does not mean they have to sit idly by and watch their kids and grandkids ruin their lives. They have a very strong ideology of what actually works in the world forged through experience, pain and suffering. AOC has a strong indoctrinated ideology, but she doesn't even seem to have a grasp of history in the last century...how is she supposed to be taken seriously?

    I need to reread The Open Society and Its Enemies. It's been too long...I can't even remember why he didn't like Plato anymore. Maybe I'll change my mind.

    And with that I'm going to report myself and try to get this moved to OT board ...where it belongs.

    Oh please. They seceded from the United States of America and were fighting to NOT be American. The good guys won. Get over it.

    Wrong.

    You mean like US Grant who was a slave owner as was his wife? Nothing to "get over". It's a very dark part of US history that so many Americans fought and killed each other, some family members too. Gloating in this day and age is silly.

    The early onset of dementia is crippling -- not only for you but for your loved ones as well.

    Prayers sent.

    Yup. And did the citizens of this newly formed nation still consider themselves subjects of His Majesty the King?

    No, they did not, nor did the Continentals who fought and died in that war want to be honored as British veterans.

    No,.... he is a liar, leftists do not pray...

    And if he truly does not believe what I said about Wirebender, in the face of overwhelming proof....then Liz is the one exhibiting dementia as well as the usual lib dishonesty

    Truly.

    As though her 40-yard dash time, and vertical leap should be factors in whether we should hire her.

    She's going to be a University president. Last I checked, that was not a physically demanding role

    It's mind-boggling how obvious the ageism and gerontophobia is in this thread but it's those people participating in it who are screaming the loudest about other phobias and isms.

    I don't when the discounting and insulting of experience and wisdom started but it's not a prudent approach.

    To paraphrase the introduction speaker: "She's a smart woman...Her predecessor was also a smart woman..." Gee, wtf does her sex have to do with it? Sounds rather sexist to me. How about just sticking to she's smart and was a unanimous choice? I couldn't give a rat's behind about the fact she's a woman. Who cares!

    Paraphrasing: "Age should not be a factor. I don't think my opponent's relative youth and inexperience should be held against him."

    Remember that one?

    It's not a surprise that you don't care because your posts are regularly anti-female. The fact that USC has its first woman president is something that strikes a chord with at least half the population.
    No. Should I?
