I read all the Judge Dredd comic books, and Roberts is no Judge Dredd. Dredd at least stood by the law, and he did the right thing. Roberts is going to gut the law in favor of ideology. You'd have been better off making a graphic of Roberts as Judge Death.

Yeah, I know. I'm a geek. ;)


The mid nineteenth century is just ten years away.

Of course, YOUR ideology, of contempt and disgust with any action by the right, is the only acceptable one. It wouldn't have mattered who Bush picked. Somebody, somewhere, would have been up in arms about it. You start to lose credibility when you oppose EVERYTHING, no matter what.

Very powerfully argued, Jason.

I will put "ideology of contempt" right next to "ideology of hate" on the shelf next to that old standby "ideology of disgust."

Ideology actually involves ideas, rather than emotions. Ideology is a set of ideas with a coherent argument to them leading to a point.

Your credibility would be better served if your sentences made sense.


Ideologoy of contempt and disgust "...with any action by the right." That in itself is an idea, which is the starting point for any somewhat coherent argument made by most, not all, people on the left.

This belief that everything the President says or does is wrong, forms the basis of the Left Wing.

Oh yeah, your disagreement doesn't mean it doesn't make sense.

The Heretik

An ideology is a collection of ideas. The word ideology was coined by Count Destutt de Tracy in the late 18th century to define a "science of ideas."

Liberalism is a political current embracing several historical and present-day ideologies that promote rights such as individual liberty and private property. Liberalism in the English-speaking world emphasises the defence of those rights as the purpose of government, and the right to dissent from orthodox tenets or established authorities in political or religious matters. In these countries, liberalism is held in contrast to conservatism.

Conservatism is a political tendency underlying those ideologies, political philosophies, political movements, and social and cultural attitudes which seek to limit change. All conservatives would reject the premise, "change for its own sake." Etymologically, conservatism implies that conservatives seek to preserve aspects of a social order, or to return to a previous order judged superior to the current

To be fair Heretik, Jason was talking about Ideologoy, not Ideology.

Oh yeah, your disagreement doesn't mean it doesn't make sense.

Yikes, double negative alert!

That was pretty bad grammar, sorry.
