I gave you four.   I've been listening/reading to these people for years, and they have moved towards extremist views .    Some conservatives have always had extremist views, so I didn't include them, .e.g., Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter,  Michael Medved,  Dennis Prager,  et al.

The widening chasm between the left and right ideologies is pretty obvious to most people - I have no idea why you choose to ignore it.   

At least the extremists on both sides of the aisle can see eye-to eye with big government and big taxes!!    Grin


Huh.  So Republicans don't need to have any actually more extreme views to be extremists.  None of the "four" you said were policy positions.  None of the people you mentioned have changed their views. 

I think it's the "more" you're not clicking with.  How have the Republicans become MORE extreme?  That means they have a greater level of extremism than they had before.  You haven't listed a single thing.

It is bizarre though how someone even as aware as you are of the lying leftist media still are controlled by them.  All my life, Democrats have beaten the Republicans with a stick and the Replublicans didn't fight back.  Now they are FINALLY fighting back just a little, and you call them extremists for it.

The Republicans are sad, useless and pathetic.  They are moving to the LEFT.  Just slower than the Democrats are.  That's why the gulf is widening.  They have zero fiscal conservatism.  Neither W nor Trump ever vetoed a spending bill.  They accept gay marriage, don't fight abortion, don't fight for capital punishment anymore.  They want to build a wall, but accept endless illegal aliens being here.    They accept gun regulations, gun free zones.  What conservative values are they fighting for?

There is nothing "more" extreme about Republicans.

And Sean Hannity is an "extremist?" That may be the dumbest thing I ever heard you say

There is no need for all this melodramatic hyperbole.     I'll be happy to discuss AOC.


I was just trying to be funny because you are dodging the question.  You threw out total nonsense to justify that Republicans are extremists.

I haven't heard Pirro much.  A little.  I saw her quote that got her suspended.  I didn't like the quote, but wow, it was way, way less than leftists say on fake news every day about Republicans.

Laura is not an extremist, just a conservative. And Sean Hannity may rail on what the Democrat party is doing, but he is a really decent guy.  And is very religiously tolerant as well.

Rush is an entertainer.  He's funny.  Buy a sense of humor.

Mark Levin - well, if you don't believe in the Constitution, I suppose he's extreme

Michael Medved,  Dennis Prager,  et al. - With as much politics as I follow, two people I never heard of aren't exactly representatives of the party.

You made a point of that Republicans are MORE extreme.  Back it up.  They are clearly not

“Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??” - Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

So young, so misinformed, and so arrogant.   Grin

AOC's profound misunderstanding of how an economy works is her biggest downfall, and most likely the reason she embraces socialism - an economic model WHICH HAS NEVER WORKED IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

If government forced businesses to raise the minimum wage, 2 (bad) things would happen;

Workers will be laid off (or hours cut back) to offset the increased cost of payroll

Prices of all goods and services will rise to offset the increased cost of payroll

How ironic that AOC majored in Economics at Boston University!    Grin    Grin    Grin    Grin

“If socialists understood economics, they wouldn't be socialists.” - Friedrich Hayek

edit:  hey Boston University . . . . consider hiring a new Economics professor.    Smiley

Did she really say that?

Who buys Croissants at LaGuardia for $7? People with money to waste...

Why worry about them?

I'm doing some grocery shopping tomorrow, I'll check the price of croissants at my local grocery...

Astro scientists named an asteroid Ocasio Cortez. [23238]

Why?

It's a little embarrassing, actually.  Ok.    A LOT embarrassing.

I'll let comrade Ocasio Cortez explain it:



Comrade AOC has never even seen this object.   I can't even imagine her embarrassment.

So arrogant.   So ignorant.    And they name asteroids after her.  It doesn't get any dumber than that, folks.!

We have finally arrived at total stupidity.  Giving credit where absolutely none is due.  And the name given is Ocasio-Cortez.   Grin

A large Croissant at my local grocery is 70 cents. Small ones are half that...

Didn't people make fun of Bush because he had obviously never shopped for groceries, being a child of privilege and all that?

It sounds like Ocasio-Cortez is also out of touch with the real world of working people.

An excellent background for someone who wants to murder and torture.  She's no Che anymore than than Trump is a Hitler.  She's a naive 20 something bartender.

Where is it you think she would stop before she gets there?  The Democrats are overtly supporting violence and fascism to shut down dissenters.  At what point before they get to Che do you think that AOC will say no, I'm flipping sides and becoming a Republican because you're going too far?

This is the fallacy of those who defend Democrats.  Your standard is what are they doing now?  Now? No, they are not Che ... not today ...  But that's the wrong standard in terms of who they actually are.  The standard is where will they stop?

What tax rate will be too high?  At what point will they decide Republicans do have freedom of speech?  At what point will they decide poor people are too powerful?  At what point could a black or a woman or a gay or a ... run for President as a Republican and they will decide the press is going too far in destroying them?

Where would they stop?
