We welcome you to THE SPOT: politics, social commentary… and fun
Comments are open to all!
The blog authors are unapologetic progressives, but we welcome participation from intelligent, conservative commenters who are able - and willing - to make cogent arguments for conservative principles without resorting to outrageous lies, racist nonsense, ad hominem irrelevancies, or childish gay-bashing.
We're serious! Are you out there? Do you even exist? Please come on in and show us! We enjoy the sound of clashing opinions - without all the lying and shouting that too often accompanies political discussion. The well-informed and razor-sharp progressive minds in residence here look forward to engaging with you.
We really do!

On Ayn Rand…
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Kung Fu Monkey
