    Yup, but I consider them friends so I won't name them specifically. But being an ideologue does nothing but further muddle the political arena. What good does pining for how things should be do you when it'll never be like that...?

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Do you accept Merriam-Webster's definition of ideologue?

    "An adherent of an ideology, esp. one who is uncompromising and dogmatic"

    I'm using it in terms of someone who pushes for things that are unrealistic just because they feel that's the way it should be. For example, I find libertarians to be ideologues for the most part. They believe the free market will keep itself balanced, when pragmatically all a free market leads to is an eventual winner among competition and a monopoly for said company...

    Saw 'The Campaign' last night. Funny, & sad satire of the American election process.

    An ideologue is an idealist you don't agree with, that's all. Actually, even "idealist" carries with it sort of a negative connotation of naivete. Idealists generally prefer the term "principled", and label the "pragmatic" as "sell outs".

    It's all a nice big pile of bull****.


    Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile,
    And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
    And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
    And frame my face to all occasions.
    I can add colours to the chameleon,
    Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
    And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
    Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?

    Do you believe there are ideologues on both sides of the political aisle in this forum?

    Someone got it for me over the holiday. Not a fan of post-Anchorman Will Ferrell. In that light, is it worth spending an evening watching? Or should i keep kicking the can down the road?

    I like almost everything Ferrell's done in varying degrees; especially all his impersonations of George Bush. In this movie he's basically playing a loose version of his impersonation of Bush, & I think there's a little Ricky Bobby in there as well. It's not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, but it wasn't bad either. Had some really funny parts, & other times it dragged a bit. Overall I'd say it's watchable; pop it in for 15 minutes & see how you like it before you commit to it.

    I also saw one of the newly added documentaries on Netflix called 'Hippie Masala'. Wouldn't really recommend it for anyone on this board though. They chronicled maybe 5 or 6 westerners who moved to India in the 60's & 70's in search of self-realization. Was definitely interesting but not something I think many of you would consider entertaining.
