Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

He Wasn't Talking about Us

Many of my fellow wingnuts think that Barak Obama's recent remarks on social conservatives were a personal attack on them. He wasn't talking about us economic conservatives. He was talking about social conservative who “cling to“ the Democratic party anyway. After all, they're the people voting in Demcratic primaries. I'm sure he'll have something equally condescending and clueless about us for the general election.

The difference between Obama and Clinton supporters

Last year, I pointed out that “political correctness” was older than most people think:

Collectivism had already become entrenched in the United States by the 1930s. The process had started with the “Progressive” era. (You can think of the “Progressive” era as a time when a self-styled elite tried to turn the United States into a fake European nation.) The standards of the 1930s said “these people are the wave of the future” and that turned them from mere cranks into the shapers of young minds.
That was written in response to the claim that PC came from leftist refugees in the 1930s and 1940s.

After considering the Obama–Clinton race, I realized that Clinton represents the older faction of home-grown liberal fascism whereas Obama represents the imported Marxists. I still don't see much of a difference, buit their followers seem to see it.
