These are the folks who already know everything there is to know about everything (and will endlessly remind us) which really must be pretty cool 8-) when you think about it.
Its an epidemic these days I'm afraid, perpetuated by a mediocre media, schools, and culture which produces mediocre people and mediocre, "strictly divisive" debate, therefore serves little meaningful purpose IMHO. Just the way the Slave Masters want it. And remains precisely why I don't frequent COFFEE HOUSE any more :-D.
No offence intended ;) We all deserve the right to rant now and then, whether or not we happen to agree w/ the ranter, but perhaps it would be wise to always remember when observing or exercising rants; There's a very good reason why we have 'two' ears and 'one' mouth.
Very little discussion on the topic of the article, anyone else notice?
