Sorry John but you're preaching mostly to the choir. After 70 years, I've come to the conclusion that most liberals are inherently ignorant people either by choice or intelligence, who for some unknown reason just seem to lack the power of reasoning. Like the ant and the "grasshopper", they live for today. Tomorrow will take care of itself. I enjoy your somewhat caustic commentary. Especially "Ransoms' Rants" on sundays. Keep up the excellent repartee.
