Dennis Prager

Dennis Prager has a thought provoking (sorry liberals!) essay on liberal one-word reactions to issues.
Having been on the receiving end of these reactions more than once myself, I found this article to be pretty much accurate and to the point.

Here is an excerpt:

There is a steep price paid for the liberal one-wording of complex ideas -- the decline of liberal thought. But with more and more Americans graduating college and therefore taught the liberal list of one-word reactions instead of critical thinking, many liberals do not see any pressing need to think through issues. They therefore do not believe they have paid any price at all.

But American society is paying a steep price. Every car that has a bumper sticker declaring "War is not the answer" powerfully testifies to the intellectual decline of the well educated and to the devolution of "liberal thought" into an oxymoron.

Make sure you go read the whole thing here:

Harry Reid and the end of liberal thought
And if you're a liberal, email me and I'll explain it to you in smaller words.
