    “Sappyore”? Really? ;-)

    Seriously? “Mom” by the numbers is “666” She can’t possibly be serious.

    “Limiting a word count introduces an intellectual challenge”
    And yet, you needed seven words for every one you were willing to allow me. Doesn’t say much about your confidence in your own intellect.

    A more accurate statement would have been: “We shoot SCHOOLYARDS in America, you socialist…”

    “Someone you might respect, Ronald Reagan, had a double major in sociology and economics.”
    Thank you for proving my point. Reagan (for whom I have absolutely no respect, BTW) despite majoring in Sociology and Economics, understood neither the US society nor the US economy, and royally screwed up both.
    The problem with sociology is one common to most of the so-called social sciences – it produces ‘theories’ without applying true scientific methodology. Thus, social theorists as diverse as Wallerstein, Fukayama Marx and Keohane can interpret largely similar data and generate vastly different sociological theories. Unlike scientific theories, which must be replicable and observable to be accepted, sociological theories are a often little more than intellectual wishlists that reflect the researcher’s personal beliefs, rather than objective reality.
    As to the relative merits of square dancing and sociology, I would argue that neither are particularly demanding, intellectually. However, while both feature the rote repetition of meaningless patterns, dancing at least emphasizes the importance of starting off on the correct foot.
    Now, tell me why my response to your 136-word treatise should logically be limited to 20 words or fewer.

    “Who majors in square dancing?”
    Oh, please… square dancing is AT LEAST as intellectually rigorous as Sociology!

    Wow, a ‘two-fer’… small man syndrome AND small mind syndrome!

    “You can no longer tour the Guinness Brewery (unless they’ve changed back). You get a video instead and you can no longer have a sample after the video. I went there in 1983”
    Things have changed over the past 30 years, I guess. My wife and daughter toured the brewery last year, were shown (hands-on) how to pull a proper pint and then got to drink the fruits of their labour.

    Actually, hypocrisy is something of a national pastime in Canada, especially as regards the US.
    As the late Canadian journalist George Bain once wrote:
    “It is a peculiar Canadian trait to be able to
    spot an inequity better at a distance, especially if
    facing south, than close up.”
