pastorial....anyone who listens to his show for more than 3 minutes would know you're correct. The "chain" is as follows: (1) Prager seems absolutely unable to go more than 5 minutes without a reference to "the left" (2) any such reference is ALWAYS negative (3) it is virtually impossible to be happy when you are speaking/thinking negatively (4) every friday, prager devotes an hour to happiness in which he usually starts by saying that happy people make the world a better place and unhappy people make it a worse place (4)Prager completely misses the point that, throughout the week, he has, according to his own philosophy, been making the world a worse place.

OK

He is a loser and bad one. I stopped listening to him a couple years ago and I am much the better for it. I stayed away for this site for several months and that was an improvement. You do learn about people here tho., their character, how they emote, etc.. People's true character reveals itself when they experience a set back

Noz.....you're right about Prager claiming that conservatives are happier people. To refute his claim, I would force him to listen to his OWN damn show. And I don't mean the very occasional show...I mean almost ANY show. Today's show was a perfect example....I'm not sure what he did during the final hour but, during the first 2 hours, he was about as miserable and negative as a human being can be

OK But Prager insists the conservatives are happy people. Judging from his narrative and the posts we see on this tread he must have a different definition. Personally I think is largely tied up with a trying to overcome a sense of inferiority and lack of worth through self-inflation which in their zero sum world means demeaning or destroying the "other". That makes them feel happier and lessens their inferiority complex. It also has to do with control- everyone must feel some sense of control in their life. In their world that can only be achieved is someone else has less control. . Finally, everyone has a a sense of priority. If you get yours I can't have mine. All of mine are satisfied or none are.

The most widely offered explanation for Mitt Romney's defeat is that the Republican Party is disproportionately composed of -- aging -- white males.

That is, alas, true.

But the real question is what Republicans should do with this truth.

There are two responses.

The nearly universal response -- meaning the response offered by the liberal media and liberal academics (and some Republicans) -- is that the Republican Party needs to rethink its positions, moving away from conservatism and toward the political center.

The other response is for conservatives and the Republican Party to embark on...
