Please show counterexamples. Having opinions and being open-minded are not mutually exclusive. My opinions often change, and I usually am very quick to say when they do.Edit: Probably the best examples I have from my side of willingness to change my views based on nothing in particular are that I used to be anti-death penalty and I'm not anymore. I used to balk at police, now I have the utmost respect for them, or at least for the uniform. I also used to dislike hip-hop in general, now it's like half of what I listen to, and music has always been hugely important to me. Getting into hip-hop and then other modern genres was a huge change. As far as seeing both sides of an issue, see: listening to rap and having respect for police. =\

you don't have to defend yourself. any Democrat still posting in this forum has a fair amount of patience, a willingness to debate, and a clear masochistic streak.

I have always been for the death penalty and am now pretty solidly in the anti-death penalty camp.

All I meant was this forum is extremely anti-Democrat, anti-Obama and posting pro-obama things here specifically implies some patience, open-mindedness, and masochism. I dont know what Limbaugh's joke was but if he said it, it probably stinks.

Seriously?The Dems here have at least as much vitriol as Repubs - yourself included. To try and make it seem like Dems are the voices of reason and are mistreated here is pure revisionism. Even in this post you take a knee-jerk shot at Rush because it is just what Dems do when Rush is mentioned.

That's just not what I said. Not at all. And taking shots at Rush is just good old fashioned fun.It would be easier to just not post here than spend a lot of time peeing uphill into the wind but thats what a couple of us do. It certainly does not make us the voice of reason but it definitely means we are gluttons for punishment and it definitely means we have some patience. I readily admit there are certain conservative elements (like Rush) that I have nothing but contempt for.Who said anything about being mistreated? I honestly dont understand what you are talking about.

I am here for open debate, so I wish we could get more people here to defend what the Obama administration and Pelosi and Reid are doing. I've tried to engage people to tell me what's good about the health care bill, what's good about Obama's lack of transparency, and on and on. If that's anti-Democrat, so be it -- I'd just like to see some stances other than "we're a rich country, therefore we need to [whatever]". I tend not stay out of a few of the debates, such as Afghanistan and abortion, so maybe I'm just missing some of the discussion that is here.

it's just the tone in general. I do not begrudge people their anger/disappointment/viewpoint (someday I will write a post about why I still like Obama enough.....but am appalled by his decision to relive 1992-1994....it's going to be really long-winded) but you cannot deny that this is basically a conservative forum at this point. That's all.I'm not whining; it's a statement of fact. If I felt mistreated, I could move on but I am not being mistreated. Just in the minority. It's kinda like being white in Miami. (Dammit)

Back to Climate GateClimateGate: CRU Agrees To Publish All The Data. That They Haven’t Thrown AwayPosted on November 29, 2009 Yesterday, the “scientists” involved in ClimateGate made an important announcement

Leading British scientists at the University of East Anglia, who were accused of manipulating climate change data – dubbed Climategate – have agreed to publish their figures in full.In a statement welcomed by climate change sceptics, the university said it would make all the data accessible as soon as possible, once its Climatic Research Unit (CRU) had negotiated its release from a range of non-publication agreements.

Today, “um, well, ya see, our Bad!”

SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

or this gem: jmkiserhttp://www.fullconta...u...t&p=1708340I think the point being made is to just watch out before you start making conspiracy theories about scientists. Scientists become scientists so they can seek out the world, make discoveries, etc.. And they are paid to do just that.You will be very hard pressed to find too many "dirty" scientists, as I like to call them, that will screw with data.

Yeah, I have to agree, and I'm very disappointed by that. I am seriously interested in the debate, not in the winning or losing. I want my views challenged and polished; that doesn't happen if everyone agrees. I'm left debating drug policy with BG
