Did you ever think that the reason those entities - public schools, main stream media, and Hollywood, don't confer absolute political control is because they are more mature than that? That they are balanced and care more about the good of the country and the people than the success of their party? That they are willing to entertain ideas proposed by the other side when they are valid and fair because they are open minded? Did you ever think that perhaps the reason your list of huge entities that are wholly taken by the Democrats is growing - years ago it was just liberal Hollywood, then the Republicans added the 'lame' stream media , and now public schools have been added - is because Republicans have become increasingly out of touch?

What nonsense. You are correct in one thing though, the words have changed. Sexual behavior has gone on more or less the same for hundreds of thousands of years - we're just more open about it now.
Best guess is that he is able to tune into their argument style because it so matches his own.
Please don't believe anything John Ransom says without checking his sources. He conflates, he obfuscates, and even more important, he ignores the main body of intellectual knowledge, because it generally disagrees with what he would like you to believe. What a pompous demagog.
This particular column so absolutely and clearly manipulates lazy people into believing (by unquestioning acceptance) complete and utter lies. For example: “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment. The sad part is that it’s not just ditzy news anchors who propagate bad science, it’s bad scientists who propagate ditzy news. Ransom makes it sound like Nye agrees with the reporter - in truth he made the reporter look like an idiot for asking such a stupid question. Please don'
Don't be so smug. Reread your own writing. The problems in education are many, but this approach is about as useful as putting a dunce cap on a kid and sitting him in a corner. Oh, yes. Please do trust in Michelle Malkin. Trust that almost any column she writes will be filled with half baked reactionary ideas only designed to stimulate the negative emotions of those who don't know how to parse a piece of non fiction writing for the obvious and not so obvious bias. Come to think of it, perhaps that's why you are all so afraid of the Common Core curriculum - people will become able to see through such shams as this article much more easily!
So simple seeming because it is so simplistic, calling out with large emotional power and very little economic reality. His main point, that unemployment insurance creates more unemployment is based on one silly statistic: "...There have been a lot of studies over the years going back to the 1970s that show these programs on balance added a bit to the unemployment rate.” So a few are moochers - what else is new? That he then blames these few moochers for 9 trillion in debt. Pay attention to the nonsense here people. Analyze. Do not take John Ransom's ideas straight into your unfiltered brain - he plays fast and loose with the truth... and stirs up a lot of emotional ire over fabricated peccadilloes.
If you really believe no liberal has any interest in reducing abortions, you are too far out on the fringe to see or hear clearly. I'd suggest you move a little closer to the middle in order to hear what's actually being said.
You make my point for me, Basset Hound.
We are already nonchalant about allowing people to die for lack of a decent health care, and allow girls to struggle through life in miserable jobs because they had to drop out of school to take care of a baby. Why don't you guys propose to protect and take care of people after they're born in exchange for abortion reform?
