Why don't you go to the library and check out a copy or better still buy a copy.

No pardner.  Conservatives don't insist on others following politically correctness trends, and if the President is liberal to be issuing Executive Orders directing government or those receiving government funds to follow those trends.

Don’t forget six, you attacked everyone who doesn’t agree with you and called THEM closed minded. This topic is supposedly about a book and not one post, including the first one, had anything to say about what was in the book but there were certainly several from the right complaining about people responding to the first post who they claim didn’t read the book even though they have not read the book themselves.

As for the working class being slaves to the upper class, I must remind you you forgot to take out the trash again. Now, that is silly, but your post was silly as well. You make it sound like you posters on this board are kept in slavery and get a bathroom and water break.

of course there are rules. i dont see anyone on this board advocating open borders, nor do I see anyone advocating breaking laws. its conservatives that want laws regulating peoples behavior to the detriment of society. I did see your post against other women having an abortion..and you would love a law to make them illegal. thats a good example all the way around of what conservatives are all about. 


Of course you see no one proposing "open borders" - that's what Fox told the GOPers, so that's what they believe.

The second is no one read anything before getting all in a tizzy or they would have caught it. Gee, just as you do....SHOCKING, eh?  But you are very wrong.  I read your topic seconds after it was posted.  Thought to myself, "self, hadn't heard of that book.  Let's look it up.  Went to Amazon....read the synopsis....several reviews, went to a youtube vid about the author and viewed it.  Sounded like an extremely partisian view.  Didn't feel an urge to respond to your usual baiting comments.  They just see a word or two or it is the fact it is written by "That Woman" who has the danged nerve to invade the fun filled good ole boys man cave. Gee, what a sexist comment.  One can always count on you for sexist and bigoted views.  

 

The third is that several post long sentences of words that don't have much meaning, but they hope it will convince someone that they are so smart and know the Author of the book is a fraud. It's so quaint you know why others post what they do.  Sounds like a comment from a real know-it-all.   Silly men. Actually, there are five.  Oh, another mistake.....

 

There is such a rush to post to my topic that one forgets they are repeating what they post to most all the posts here. Yeah, your buddy does that all the time.....

 

The fifth is some post something that could get them in trouble and they don't have the konoles to leave the post up.  Actually, sounds like they are pretty bright and just see your comments for what they are....just more baiting.

Or perhaps it's just another Republican sponsored collection of bumper stickers that Fox told them to beleive so they do.

 

It'd say 12 to 1 for the latter.

Very strange notion of compulsive conformity.

And how does your post relate to mine?  You are referring to what has been classified as government  for decades.   Water, roads, law enforcement has been around for a long time. So has education.  Who has been arguing against that.

 

I was referring to the social engineering that the Obama administration was pushing.  Also the socialist idea of sharing and sharing alike which is akin to your 'commies'.
