I never once claimed to have any such superiority over you

Even your punctuation is condescending.

Truth and morality are orthogonal dimensions, just as socialism and fascism are orthogonal political ideas.

Oh, maybe in the abstract. Dare you involve actual people, and everything goes pear-shaped. This is why the genius of the U.S. Constitution is to assert outright that people are evil, and set up checks and balances to minimize the effects. Which #OccupyResoluteDesk is systematically ignoring, while Congress and the Courts, as a whole, are abetting.
Your assertion of the orthogonality of socialism and fascism is akin to saying that your C++ source code is crash-free--of course it is: until you compile it, execute it, and blame the ensuing stack trace on conservatives.

This whole "moral superiority" bullshit that you are now swinging about is just as silly as most of the other memes you have been parroting from the conservative blogosphere. I never once claimed to have any such superiority over you; why would I even want to talk to you if I held that as a belief? I am indisputably better educated on several of the topics that you keep attempting to lecture on, and I point out where the gaps in your knowledge are on those topics (sometimes the gaps being so large that it is hard to tell if any knowledge exists at all, but that is another problem).

But being knowledgeable is not related to having "moral superiority". Truth and morality are orthogonal dimensions, just as socialism and fascism are orthogonal political ideas.

I am absolutely not a liar

The only way that those previous statements are not lies coming from you is if you are indeed so blissfully ignorant and intentionally repeatedly ignoring my writings that you have no clue whatsoever of what you are replying to. Under any other set of circumstances you would know that the allegations in your previous comment were total bullshit that are completely and utterly refuted by the comments that I have written here.

where on earth can you find an example of non-fiat money that is in common use and has an agreed-upon value?

While 'value' is an ebb-and-flow sort of thing, precious metals remain relatively more stable than the current regime of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, supporting the U.S. exporting its inflation abroad.

Again, I ask you; where can you use such a currency? You can't buy much of anything with gold in most countries; you have to convert it to local currency in order to make an actual transaction. Few people have any idea of what its worth, and for that matter many people can't readily distinguish gold from pyrite so they would be better off rejecting both (analogous statements can be made for silver, platinum, etc).

I am not aware of a country that uses a non-fiat currency today. I have asked you directly if you know of any and you danced around the question, which suggests that you also do not know of any.

Oh Progressive moral superior

... and then you go back to turning the absurdity up to 11, just because I dared challenge you to learn something.

She can blather on all she wants about impeachment, that doesn't mean it makes any sense at this stage of the game. For that matter right now she isn't an elected member of anything, so her opinion on it is not any more valuable than yours, mine, or my dog's.

However as I pointed out before, impeachment is pointless at this time. Impeachment cannot realistically remove a POTUS in less time than what President Lawnchair has left in his term. Hence indeed there is some

The arguments by which the Obama administration is countering lawsuits that seek to limit Obamacare subsidies to participants in "exchanges" established by states--a limit that is specified in the Obamacare law itself--have raised the outcome's stakes. Administration officials argue that the plain, unmistakable, uncontested language of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is
