Just in case.
I do understand the reasons behind the questions you pose with this thread. I, for one, feel that Ann goes to the heart of the matter on every subject she writes.
Whether it is about her upbringing or how she conducts herself privately is another matter. To me, it appears she had a very different upbringing than a lot of girls these days. She was raised with a fierce patriotism that has extended itself to some of the views she has today.
We could talk all day about what makes her the way she is, but in the end her ability to point at any issue and have a definitive position is refreshing.
The Libs have no problem calling consevatives every dirty thing they can think of, but when a conservative calls four women, who are truly using the deaths of their loved ones to further a political agenda, 'harpies', the whole media comes unglued and we get posts like this one about ..."what makes her tick".
What should be the focus is how correct any of her observations are to being accurate.
Actually, it were her shockingly uneducated rantings about "Darwinism" that snapped me out of my reverie.
Having read those, one can only draw two possible conclusions:
She is - well - uneducated about the subject (that is putting it in the best possible light) - or
she is just throwing red-meat to the wolves, regardless of the fact that she knows she is repeating a ludicrous lie.
Neither conclusion is particularly complimentary...
It is specifically my intention that this thread AVOID that questions because then there would hardly be any reason for it. We are all in agreement with the overwhelming majority of her points of view.
Sooo...please don't try to change the subject.
One simple questions:
Would you want your daughter acting the way she does? Yes or no?
