Let's hope and pray unrestricted creativity in all its forms is still out there. Unafraid. Daring.

Isn't this what the finest generations of every damn war ever fought were led to believe they were fighting for? Supposed freedom? Individual freedom (of course not) or the freedom of the powerful to continue to do as they pleased (as ordained by God)?

Really? Do you know what stifles creativity quicker than anything? Groupthink! Progressives are slaves of groupthink. There's not a creative person among them - they always look to leadership to discover how they should 'think'.

And from where do you get your information, bud?
Hawkings was a liberal. So was Einstein. Most authors, most artists.....
Or are those people not creative at all in your mind.
I bet your idea of creative genius is mel gibson, and the writings of rush limbaugh.

I wasn't questioning any individuals. In fact quite the opposite - the word I used was GROUPthink. And none of the persons you mentioned are / were politicians - those that actually are responsible for making decisions, planning strategies for the entire country and for the benefit of the people.

Just look at the democrat response to Republicans bill protecting the DACA kids. How many dems voted for that? HOw many supported those precious DACA kids? And how many simply voted the way they were told - like common slaves?

You said progressives are slaves to groupthink. You said nothing about politicians.
And....as far as daca goes, it should not be tied to new, harsh immigration laws. Daca should stand alone, not grouped into a bill.
Trump is using the daca people as bargaining chips. It is outrageous.
It is trump that is smaking down daca. He took away their protections to use them. Great guy.

Again, no mention of politicians.
Individuals who are progressive can be creative, but progressives are slaves to groupthink? That is doublespeak, bud.

I have heard you repeat, almost verbatim, things i hear from rush and sean. You see, i listen to them on occasion. If anyone is a product of in the box thinking...it is you and your fellow far right conservatives.

You can keep your blinders on if you want Carla, bit the fact is that democrats speak, act and vote as if controlled by by their master. For example, how else do you explain that the DACA plan universally discarded by democrats today was fully embraced and supported earlier by the same group?

Here's some strict guidelines forya... ( http://motd.ambians.com/quotes....id/1-0-9/s/473 )

There was a young fellow named Skinner
Who took a young lady to dinner
At a quarter to nine,
They sat down to dine,
At twenty to ten it was in her.
The dinner, not Skinner -- Skinner was in her before dinner.

There was a young fellow named Tupper
Who took a young lady to supper.
At a quarter to nine,
They sat down to dine,
And at twenty to ten it was up her.
Not the supper not Tupper It was some son-of-a-**** named Skinner!

Yes, limericks often take on a... umm... bawdy aspect. (biggrin)

An oversexed nymphet named Bess
Often pleasured herself to excess;
In the last tingling spasm
Of her nineteenth orgasm,
She gasped, "I want twenty, no less!"
