"You mean like certain strains of 'Christians' or possibly right-wing Republicans?"

I think I covered that ground, GregF, when I said...

"just like any other closed community might develop"

But if it makes you feel better to bring it up yet again, have at it m'man!

Have a nice evening!

Brucie,

Of course I know I was overstating the case to make the point. Thankfully, you've been gracious enough to show that you know exactly what I meant, even if overstated.

Of course I see the disagreements among those on the left here. I also see 1. lots of unchallenged, cliche'ed rhetoric -- accepted because of the make-up of this community, however incidental or accidental, allows for it, and 2. a very high degree of that familial kind of protectionism (for want of a better word), not unlike two brothers who fight like cats'n'dogs -- until an interloper happens to challenge -- then blood is thicker than water....or in this case, "mud is thicker than water".

Okay....even I'm groaning at that one.

Have a very pleasant eveining, sir!
