    A bit off topic, but I have to say that if that is your pup in your avatar, someone should sic the authorities on you for animal abuse.

    I spent a few minutes and a cup of coffee browsing thru the membership. Surprisingly, without making a list, the names I recognized from the last decade that would be described as right leaning, conservative republicans, that no longer post, was far greater then those on the left.

    Guilty as charged!!
    (Used to distinguish between Democrats and progressives and BTW, there are many so called Republicans that fit into that category)

    I know what the definition of "secular progressive" is.

    I think most here do as well.

    Could you tell me what a "Neo-Con" is in the context it is being used here?

    I haven't seen an explanation.

    Thank you!

    Some just get tired of the rhetoric, beating a dead horse, no win situations. Oh and some just get pissed.
