I just realized why I identify myself as a liberal, even though I'm just as financially conservative. I'm starting to wonder if the real split between liberals and democrats in this country isn't about abortion and guns per se -- instead, it's about how they prefer to communicate. Conservatives like shouting; liberals prefer reasoned discussion. I prefer the later, so I unconsciously identify myself as such. Random Lily thought brought to you today thanks to Su and Scott for their comments here and in the Canadian thread (Yeah, and I know about what that Berkeley linguist said about family conceptual metaphors, and for a variety of reasons, I'm fairly certain he's wrong. But that's a different thread.)
Heck, you through tomatoes just to get heard, I think that that is NOT rational thought at all, and Descartes would agree with me.
