    ooooo, Lets all chant "free Tibet" because I know everything about China's Human Rights issues. *sarcasm*

    I hate when people just want to sound aware and just follow what the media say all this free Tibet crap. What about all those other regions in China?

    What the hell does this have to do with being on the left side of the political spectrum, or about people "on the left" in general?

    I haven't really heard about anyone talk about Tibet in awhile ... there are more relevant issues happening here in the US - like the housing crash, election and economic troubles.

    Your communication abilities are top notch. I look forward to your insight in the South Ossetia thread.

    I thought you were making fun of left-handed people, and I was about to get pissed.

    But never mind. Carry on.

    wasteland for sure, where all those damn lefties sit around drinking apple cider.
    You might want to develop your argument before going public.

    Of interest this beverage slight has regional variation. In Australia the derogatory convention is "latte or chardonnay sipping" lefties.

    Well, only a lefty would try to act highbrow by deeming this thread a waste and putting it in the wasteland. What do they think they are, important?

    The average public doesn't know much beyond what they see in the Media. Instead of trashing people who've taken to this issue because of the media, your heart should be atleast a little warmed by the fact that people are willing to fight for something when they feel it is important.

    You fail at ranting. This is whining. To rant, you actually have to prove something is ludicrous, or inferior in some way. Also, what you are complaining about had nothing to do with being a "lefty".

    And there lies the difference. A leftie will do something, A try hard leftie will just try and sound intelligent around the dinner table.
