T. Paine, at Saving Common Sense, goes to discredited stereotypes and challenges the patriotism of those who decline to join the conservative march. One bromide is that liberals believe rights do not exist unless granted by government. No need for a counterpoint. Turns out it had already been submitted here.
Manifesto Joe of Texas Blues reviews wasted opportunities and complacent attitudes that cause Americans to let down ourselves and each other.
Debra Dickerson is back (Yay-y-y-y-y) with a very funny not quite Sinatra via Denis Leary. Turns out to be very, very good. The dark side of American complacency. Manifesto Joe, sort of, set to very good music.
Tommy Christopher of Mediaite fame starts by covering an unfortunate Fox television exchange and ends up taking it personally, contrasting real people he has taken the time to meet with well paid TV personalities who entertain audiences by making fun of the desperately poor.
James Wigderson hosts a popularity contest that does not, or maybe does, predict who Republicans want as their next Senator from Wisconsin. Click to find out who's winning, or maybe to find out who's even running.
Our favorite John Myste is a bit dormant at John Myste Responds. His past writing is timeless and more than worth revisiting. He has been on this site, however, in full battle regalia fighting the good fight against ... well ... me, actually.
Ryan gives Secular Ethics a brief rest (a shame), visiting at our site in order to slowly and carefully explain to me why he is against charts in debate. He even uses small words. For all his devoted effort, I still don't get it. Fortunately, he possesses a steady temperament and remains a most patient instructor.
- Infidel 753 has the most detailed, scientific explanation of Higgs Boson delivered via rap. Wow. Dancing to the dark mass.

Maybe I should just look for the posts in which you use charts or present evidence, those are easiest of all to find. Just close my eyes and ... you know ... point.
As for “discredited stereotypes”, I will admit to making some large generalizations about the far left progressives; however, there seems to be more than ample evidence to support rather than discredit that particular stereotype. Indeed while not universally accurate, stereotypes develop because of seeming common characteristics or attitudes amongst any given group of people. While not always fair, in the case of the far left progressives in our country, the stereotype seems to be rather apropos to me.
The title of your post is not "The Far Left Progressive's Declaration of Dependence."
It is simply "The Progressive's Declaration of Dependence."
That you think references to "Mother Goa," "punished with a baby," "illegal alien Democrat voters," not having to "leave our parents' basements," "all-powerful government," and using the government to solve "whatever problems we would rather not confront ourselves" accurately represent progressives in general shows that you spend too much time in some form of contact with the worst of the far Left or hodgepodge caricatures thereof.
On the other hand, if your post's target is actually the far Left, I would appreciate a change in the title. However, since I am not sure that you make any kind of meaningful distinction between "progressives" and "far left progressives" (everyone's far something these days), I will not hold my breath.
