On Christmas, Liberals Are By No Means Liberal

I made the mistake of reading this on Christmas night. Dear God; how sad this man must be. I wonder if he really believes what he's saying. Or is he devious and manipulative, like a Hitler? Is he ignorant or conniving? Either way, it's evil. Yet, if a person is simply paranoid and ignorant rathr than deliberately conniving, don't we have to forgive them? That's where I'm stumped. If he's ignorant/paranoid and not deliberate, then can he be evil? Evil can be the inadvertent byproduct of ignorance is what I come to conclude.. So, he's not an evil person but his paranoia combined w/ ignorance makes him an evil force, unfortunately. It's not a big stretch from this sort of mind to the one that gunned down 6 yr olds in their school...
Random thoughts on the passing scene:

When I was growing up, an older member of the family used to say, "What you don't know would make a big book." Now that I am an older member of the family, I would say to anyone, "What you don't know would fill more books than the Encyclopedia Britannica." At least half of our society's troubles come from know-it-alls, in a world where nobody knows even 10 percent of all.

Some people seem to think that, if life is not fair, then the answer is to turn more of the nation's resources over to politicians --...
