Of course they are. What else can you do when someone is trying to murder you?

How can a union, as such, possibly be an object of murder? All Walker did was enact some common-sense reforms, right?
Public sector unions are a mutiny awaiting their moment, or, in the case of Wisconsin, trying to have their way with taxpayers.
I hasten to add that I have no problem with private sector unions, insofar as there are right-to-work laws to keep them in check.

No, no: are you willing to do an interactive read with me of this text? We can go back and forth in ~300 word chunks.
I'm willing to slog through the cess pool of Marx's thought. . .if you are.
I'm also willing to do the same with, say, the Gospel of Mark with you. It's the shortest. But let's do yours first.
Because I'm a giver like that.

Of course the lottery "can work". In pointing out S.P. as a potential officeholder from it, I kinda seem to have stipulated that it must work. (Duh?)
I'm discussing the kind of consequence you'd face, and pointing out an apparent contradiction: your support of the mechanism seems at odds with a potential result.

You're only trying to find a way to satisfy yourself that the lottery can't work. All the inconsistencies are on your side.

Your perceived inconsistency is what, exactly?

Wasn't a trick. I didn't remember clearly, and wasn't going to take the time to try to dig out replies, but I'm fairly certain that you've trashed S.P. on more than one occasion, and that you've argued for purely random office holder selection. So I don't think I was being wildly inaccurate or "fake but true" there.

Well, you're not reading mine, either. You continually come in with the Rousseau, and I reply with with Locke. Group vs. individual. And so it goes.

You want to place people in power who will drive us even further to the right.

Understand that the right/left dichotomy is so much bugaboo.

Your side has been given >90% of what they have demanded of the federal government

False. Conservatives want to be emancipated from the "managed liberty" of Progress.

Oh, come on: I totally qualified that remark with uncertainty. You really have to go right to impinging my integrity? Sad.
"(of course I realize you still don't believe I never vote for him)" I take everyone at face value with regard to who they say they vote for, or not.

You're actually carrying the persecution complex your heard about on FOX.

Who watches that noise? I take in HGTV and a little NBC News 4. For a total of 1-2 hours/week.

The light bulb has to want to change...

In two weeks, the fatal flaw of majority rule will once again show its monstrous face (with you and d_r, and various others here being perfect representatives)

Oh! The light bulb! Of course! If only we could just incentivize that godforsaken light bulb!
If only the light bulb could defeat that majority rule bugbear!
Does the light bulb have to break itself and stab the majority rule bugbear in some critically vulnerable area, so that the bugbear bleeds to death? Or is the bugbear just light sensitive, and the proper wavelength from the light bulb will make it whither?

tl;dr: We're all doing what we can. How about something substantive, and a little less mumbo-jumbo?

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.

Working...
