Response to Honeycombe8 (Original post)

24. There are people in the world who live more interesting lives outside politics.

To be honest, I would have to say that nothing in politics has affected me personally for at least 20 years.

Bush's war with Iraq? Didn't affect me. Clinton's oval office affair? No effect.

So I can well imagine there are people who have absolutely no interest in politics or DU or anything outside their own lives.

If you maintain there is a certain level of interest that is MANDATORY for you to think someone is worth your attention, then you should define that level.

And I don't think you can so, while yours was an interesting rant, I don't see that it is a very productive one.
