An interesting concept. On the off chance that it is more than merely a bumper sticker, shall we explore it?

 

What thinking led you to that thought?

I'm not sure of the effect of a "Posse of Poseurs" would have on our nation, that element is overlooked by the linguist, but I am sure of the effects of moving further towards Marxism.

 

It is also uncertain how some supposed "ignorant Alabama racist" is a factor in a discussion of Marxism.

 

It seems to some the answer to all economic problems is "raise the TMR" and to others the answer to all problems is "attack President Trump".

 

And poor ol' Kevin Smith - he just gets lost in the shuffle.

I guess we can both agree that Trump is not a hero.  I Googled Conservative hero and got a ton of hits for a philosophy which claims not to have them. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Did you happen to find any references to your fellow posters about who the claim is made?

 

I personally do not find him to be a Conservative. I guess I'm just an old fashioned Goldwater Conservative. Although he is not my "idol" I am delighted he stopped the march of the neo-Marxists in the past election.

When you are comparing a Progressive hero to a Conservative hero and the Conservative hero is Trump? No, I am afraid the facts speak for themselves in both cases. 


No, I am saying that if one truly admires someone like Kevin Smith, he should be able to discuss him positively without having to detour to another person falsely labeled "Conservative hero".


Well ,,,,,,,, I would agree that Trump isn't a 'hero' of any kind.

There is truth about the attacks on our President (not the substance, just their existence). It seems that there are those that automatically attack the successful. Yet, without the successful, where would you get the money for your wealth redistribution.

 

And then there is, of course, the "snowflake effect" of those stamping their feet because they didn't get their way in the elections (note: "elections" (pl), they got clobbered up and down the line).

Seriously, Dude, you gotta get a new hero.


Ah but think of an entreupenure running up $60K to do a film.  You look at the film but I look at the business model.
