The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Beware of labeling as the use of unnecessary adjectives is generally a dead giveaway of what things are not. Delicious Hamburgers from fast food joints are chock full of fillers not flavor. People's Republics are never actually run for the people, but for the party elite. Reality-based communities generally have only a passing understanding of how the world works. If they actually were those things, it would be obvious and the adjectives would be unnecessary.
Dr. Sanity did a nice piece a while back on the leftist projection problem and you can see that in every single post that are resident lefty posts on his site or in the comments here.
Unfortunately, his projection is limiting his ability to synthesize data and form new thought because he just cycles the same talking points over and over even against EVIDENCE. Poor guy.
The Leftists don't know what that word means, Kevin.
Reasons, for them, are nothing but poor excuses and rationalizations, hence the brain-rot mentality that manifests itself in the overwhelming cognitive dissonance that defines the Left.
You must substitute, and insist on the correct usage by everyone around you, in those instances where used, the term compromise in place of reason.
Then yank the smokewagon and put one between the eyes of the tyrant who says such nonsense.
Reason? Why would they need to reason? They're smarter than us: You don't use logic on lesser creatures, you use FORCE, preferably, the force of government (not guns 'cause they're all icky and stuff). Logic and reason can only be used with people who understand such things.
Like Joe Biden. And Barbara Boxer. And Patrick Kennedy.
