When one declares oneself to be a conservative, one is not, unfortunately, thereupon visited by tongues of fire that leave one omniscient. The acceptance of a series of premises is just the beginning. After that, we need constantly to inform ourselves, to analyze and to think through our premises and their ramifications. We need to ponder, in the light of the evidence, the strengths and the weaknesses, the consistencies and the inconsistencies, the glory and the frailty of our position, week in and week out. Otherwise, we will not hold our own in a world where informed dedication, not just dedication, is necessary for survival and growth.

To all who missed the chat, I say this... it made Beirut look like DisneyLand...

I still have the collateral damage (un-eaten popcorn) strewn about my carpeting..., It was a sight to see when all the bullets where flying...

It was getting rather lively, wasn't it? Then I lost my internet connection for several minutes and when I returned I could no long comment! Argggggg!
So it goes sometimes. Hey, pass the popcorn--- is that a dog hair?
