Quote from bonkman View Post :
paraphrase Smilie

And let's reword it as "good and bad debate" laugh out loud
It's more rare than it should be that two or more parties are actively trying to debate the same issue, but we have had in recent memory what are earnest, sometimes fruitful debates on natural rights and gun control.

Contrast these good-faith discussions against this thread, which despite pan-political consensus on basic facts and basic arithmetic, dragged on and on as a gruesome spectacle of senseless intransigence. Reminding me of the heroin thread of yore.
