You are so correct. To actually believe all that tripe that is inconsistent and illogical you have to be mentally incapable of coherent thought. I used to live in Northern California when the plastic bag became the end-all-be-all. I used to argue with people in the check-out line that a tree would grow back but that plastic would be in the ground forever. They could not grasp that simple logic. All they could say back to me was how terrible it was to cut down a tree. This was 20+ years ago. Today it is still illegal to cut down a tree on your own private property without permission from the city or county however they have finally seen the light about plastic bags. It took them 20 years!!!!!!! Liberalism truly is a mental disorder -

An ideology is a set of ideas that cohere. Socialism is an ideology. So is libertarianism. Suppose I told you that socialists believe the government should nationalize the steel industry and the auto industry. You would have no difficulty inferring what their position is on nationalizing the airline industry. Right? Suppose I told you that libertarians...
