Funny, I have never met a tolerant liberal.

A sample size of one? Wow, so I guess the Prop. 8 protests (and vandalism, threats of violence, etc. involved therein), the Occupy movement, and the "runaway" democrats in Wisconsin were all "one" example? Sorry, but that's not my blood in the puddle around your feet - it's yours! You may want to try to stuff your intestine back into your belly, by the way.

"If liberals were not tolerant in regard to sexual orientations, they wouldn't be trying to ghet you to accept gay folk, they would be demanding you become gay."

Which is precisely what they are doing when they demand that we change the definition of marriage to fit their behavior, not to mention enacting "hate crime laws" which condemn even the possibility of disagreeing with a homosexual.

Anominus loves the cut of his own jib, that's for sure...

In business school one time there was a guy who was truly full of himself--he'd gotten his offer from Goldman and was on top of the world, a Master of the Universe. The prof asked him a question, the guy answers with the absolute certainty that is only posessed by the utterly clueless. The prof senses a teachable moment. He asks more questions, and for each the young star gives us his most convincing opinion. After this has gone on just long enough, the prof addresses the class, and says "Class, you have just seen vividly displayed the dangers of a sample size....of one."

It took about three beats before the guy knew how badly he was bleeding. That's Anominus.

He did not lose the argument. Take Prop 8 for example. If liberals were not tolerant in regard to sexual orientations, they wouldn't be trying to ghet you to accept gay folk, they would be demanding you become gay. That would be intolerance.

Advocating for a position is not intolerance. Insistign that only people who are like you have value is intolerance.

The overwhelming evidence is in my favor that liberals only tolerate liberal ideals and are unwilling to discuss them in a civil manner. You can whine about "anecdotes" all you like, but I have seen first hand how the leftists behave. I remember the protests against Prop. 8 by homosexuals and their leftist enablers, the "occupy" movement, the behavior of the democrats in Wisconsin and in Washington DC.

You lost this argument because you are a liar and a hypocrite. You got nothin'!

"Liberals tolerate no dissent..." At this point, you've shown that your argument is clearly wrong, not based on anything but your bias, and you've lost. I'm sure you'll claim you have lots of examples, but the plural of "anecdote" is not "data"

Actually, I've met plenty of "tolerant" liberals - they are perfectly tolerant until you disagree with them, after which, they become the most intolerant and abusive, not to mention vengeful and grudge holding, hypocrites I've ever known. Liberals tolerate no dissent, and will do whatever they can to stifle argument by demonizing their opponents, rather than engaging in civilized debate, all the while demanding "civility." I look forward to seeing their faces once their plans truly come to fruition. They have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.

You've probably met plenty of them, you just didn't know they were liberal. You may well have assumed---incorrectly, of course---that they weren't liberal if you observed them being tolerant because of your prejudice. As is often the case, we know more about you than you know about us...

In the scramble to make the GOP more diverse, a lot of people are looking at Asian Americans, whom many believe are a natural constituency for the party. I would love it if Asian Americans converted en masse to the Republican Party, but the challenge for Republicans is harder than many appreciate.

President Obama did spectacularly well with Asian Americans, garnering nearly three-quarters of their vote. This runs counter to a lot of conventional wisdom on both the left and the right. On average, Asian American family income is higher and poverty is lower than it is for non-Latino whites....
