No, sorry.Did you bother reading the article posted?
No, but both of my children were, and I lived there 15 years, so I paid taxes and all that stuff. Does that count for anything, or are you a xenophobic?PS - were you born in the USA? :-)

Yes, her brain seems largely unaffected. By anything.
Here's an article on why McCain can't be President of USA:

Hahahaha.Hindsight is 20-20, get the daughter (wean her) away from the Playboy channel.
I bet.Subliminal advertising (programming) the mind of the youth is big money.

I think she is still, and may always be, involved in the questions of immanence and transcendence, which in her case, her position, arises from an apolitical philosophical position. Her position as an academician is notable too. I think she is philosophising about human potential and possibilities and cannot find good reasons (reasonings) why people---anyone---should be limited by any philosophically-backward construct. She seems to be doing what many young people do in university for a number of years, taking advantage of a window of opportunity to explore new territories unfettered by conventions.
The title 'conservative' is a loaded term. For example, Noam Chomsky refers to himself as 'a conservative in the original sense of the term'. What we now understand as a 'conservative' is usually a reactionary statist with a secret pact with big business and the non-democratic pole generally. True conservatism, in today's climate, would appear as radicalism if the truth were told. I personally feel that some right-wing Christian discourse (for example, the guy who wrote The Marketing of Evil which I just finished) is just a nudge or a push from a radical position that you might hear on the Left wing side of things (a critique of unregulated corporate capitalism and PR machinations). The damnedest thing is when they invoke the Founding Fathers to support a religionist position when the Founders in fact detested religious opiates, their lies, their manipulations. The genius of the Founders is that they insisted that any idea, any position, be examined rationally, and that all political discourse be rational. The 'Conservative Christians' cannot, of course, say that nor can they do that.
We are so far away from rational political discourse, except on the fringes, that I sometimes think there is no hope at all.
Check out Biden's resume. He's a flake who keeps getting re-elected.
So why is Palin a Jerry Springer freak, but you're a no-show on Biden and his hijinx for the past 30 years.
